To make this colossal task easier for you, here are a few myths about Feng Shui, that you need to keep at bay.

  1. A red door is NOT always lucky! The colour of your front door brings you success, depending on other factors like the Feng Shui direction the door is facing. So it would vary from door to door!

  2. Flowers are NOT bad Feng Shui for your Bedroom! Fresh flowers bring good Chi (energy) into your home, healing it of bad energy with sweet scents and soft colours!

  3. Moving your furniture around does NOT guarantee success in life! Although this is a good idea to refresh the flow of energy at home, it does not bring instant positive changes like some mysterious magic trick.

  4. Trinkets like wind chimes and statues are NOT a guarantee of good Feng Shui! They emphasize on the use of Human Chi by encouraging our minds to get activated by creating an association with the object. Feng Shui is more powerful when it originates from the energy of Heaven(Cosmic Chi) and Earth.

  6. If your bathroom is placed in the south-east corner of your home, it does NOT always cause trouble in your finances! In spite of the SE being the universal wealth position, and water being a reservoir of energy, flushing water may turn out good. Depending on what other influences are at work in the SE corner, it can be draining bad energies from your home too.
