Avoid Bad Chi at the Front of Your Property

Avoid Bad Chi at the Front of your Property

5th May 2024

Feng shui horrors were mounting on this new apartment block being built. I passed it daily on my morning walks. I wondered what challenges the building and occupants may face. It was on a corner, next to a roundabout, car bonnets and headlights aiming sha chi at it from all directions. Tall knife-shaped structures decorated the front of the building. Below them was a low wall, with water rushing from underneath the wall down steps into a trough. The direction of the water flow was towards the road. Water symbolises money, and money here was flowing away!

How to Change from Negative to Positive

I checked in quickly and rushed off to a meeting that ended late at night. When I returned, I was desperate to drop into bed and sleep. I had no time to feng shui the room apart from covering the television and the full-length mirror. During the night, I felt hyperactive, slightly ill, and scared, with a sense of foreboding.

The Link Between Diet and Disease

The Link Between Diet and Disease

6th Apr 2024

We all know there's a link between diet and disease, yet do we give much thought to what we eat, where the food goes when it leaves the mouth, or what it does to the body? For some, the body is merely a receptacle for anything to stop the tummy rumbling or to satisfy a need at that moment, and from where rubbish exits at the other end.

Do You Have a Toxic Bedroom?

3rd Mar 2024

It’s important to keep your bedroom healthy, as you spend a third of your life in it. Your body is at its most vulnerable during sleep. It’s the time for it to rest, repair and heal, not defend itself from toxic enemies. There can be many reasons for waking up feeling unrefreshed, but you don’t want your bedroom to be one of them. 

Healthy Family

Don't Inherit Your Family's Illnesses

29th Nov 2023

I've been waiting for my health to take a dive, as my parents' medical history was a cocktail of ill health - cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, arthritis, osteoporosis, gynae issues and type 2 diabetes. But 25 years on, I'm way past the age when my parents first contracted these health conditions, and I've had no sign of any of them.
