Feng Shui isn’t just good for the home — it’s also good for the body!
Each part of the home or office corresponds to a different part of the body. If you’re suffering from aches or pains, alleviate the trouble by making adjustments to the appropriate “gua” — or section — of your home. This may seem like a fanciful notion, but you could experience immediate relief as a result. There’s a reason Feng Shui has been around for more than three thousand years!
Here are a few Feng Shui tips to benefit your body:
Health issues related to your ears are linked to the career gua, which is located in the center of the wall containing the main entrance door. Revamp this space if you’ve suffered a hearing loss or have difficulty being heard. If people accuse you of being in denial, you may also want to check this area for any grime, squeaky hinges or stuck doors.
If you’re experiencing difficulty with your hands or fingers, check the near left corner of your home, which is also known as the wisdom gua. Excessive clutter or faulty electronic equipment could be aggravating problems like arthritis, hyperhidrosis (sweaty palms) and nail fungus. You might also want to check the wisdom gua if you have difficulty handling a relationship or keeping in touch with friends.
If you develop foot trouble, examine the center portion of the left side of your home. This is the family gua, which is linked to the ability to stand on your own two feet. Dying plants, excessive heat or an overload of electronics can trigger anything from athlete’s foot to plantar warts. Trouble in the family gua can also make it difficult for you to move forward in life.
Conditions that affect your hips, pelvis or bones are linked to the prosperity gua, which sits in the far left corner of your home. Check this space if you are suffering from hip dysplasia, back pain or osteoporosis. The prosperity gua is also tied to your ability to stand up to bullies. Too much light, heat or electrical equipment can compound all of these health issues.
Problems involving the eyes are linked to the fame gua, which sits in the center portion of the far wall of your home. Examine this area if you suffer from poor eyesight, glaucoma or conjunctivitis. Cloudy mirrors, leaky faucets and grime are common manifestations of eye trouble. If you have difficulty being recognized for your contributions, you might also want to examine the family gua for trouble.
Health issues related to your stomach, intestines and genitals are linked to the relationship gua, which rests in the far right corner of your home. Keep this space free of rickety furniture, faulty electrical equipment and drafts. Such problems could be manifested as ulcers or colitis. You should also attend to the relationship gua if you’re emotionally incapable of experiencing intimacy.
Mouth and respiratory system
If you have canker sores, dental problems or asthma, examine the creativity gua for problems. This gua is located in the center portion of the right side of your home. Excessive heat and light can irritate such health problems — so can leaky ceilings, faucets and toilets. On an emotional level, creative blocks and shyness are tied to this area.
Headaches, brain injuries, mental problems, lice and dandruff are all linked to the helpful people gua, which sits in the near right corner of your home. Check this area for junk, leaks and excessive heat. If you have a drain in this spot, keep it covered when you’re not using it. On an emotional level, problems with authority figures can also be addressed by making adjustments to the helpful people gua.
If you’re suffering from a serious health matter that affects every part of your body — like heart disease, cancer, HIV, cystic fibrosis or multiple sclerosis — check the health gua. This space is located at the center of your home. Keep this area open, spacious and airy. Walls, staircases, columns and other obstructions can cause problems here. Paint these obstructions earth tones like honey, chocolate or pumpkin. Cover stairs with a soft carpet, and place a square area rug at the top and bottom of the staircase. Hang a round faceted crystal from a 9-inch red ribbon at the top of the stairs. If you have a column in this space, hang mirrors at eye level on every side of it. This will symbolically cause the pillar to vanish, relieving any obstructions to your health. If it’s a round column, encircle it with a strip of silver paper that sits at eye level. You might also want to check the health gua if your life feels off-balance.
