Feng Shui Health
By Jessie Kim
Based upon the principles of Feng Shui, when improvements are made to the Health area of your surroundings in combination with improvements made to the complementing areas, you could live a long and healthy life.
Because this is the center of the Bagua and touches all other areas of the Bagua, it really plays a supporting role to each and every one of those other areas.
Make sure to keep this area clear of all figurative cancers.
- Primary Element: Earth
- Best Color: Earth-Tones/Yellow
- Best Shapes: Horizontal, Flat, Squared
- Complementary Items: Red, Fire, Pointed or Triangular
- Destructive Items: Green, Wood, Columnar
You can see that the Health Gua touches all the areas of the Bagua, just as your health touches all aspects of your life.
When you Feng Shui any section of your home, you must have good health in mind.
The Health section is located in the center of your home or business.
You would want to take a look at this location when you are sick or want overall better health, or even if you just feel out of balance or run down.
Helpful to Health
Place a potted plant in a ceramic pot or a painting or picture of a mountain in this area to improve or maintain good health.
You can also put some fire elements here because fire helps to create earth.
Little candles in the center of your coffee table or dining table would work just fine.
Yellow, gold and other earth tones are good for this area, as well.
So, yellow daisies in a white ceramic vase can help brighten up your room as well as your spirits.
Aside from the Helpful People & Travel corner, religious objects in the Health Gua would be your next best choice.
Therefore, if you have a bedroom in the Helpful People & Travel corner of your house, place those religious objects in the Health area instead to ensure you are well-rested.
Think of the religious objects as watching over your health, which is more valuable then anything in the world you can buy.
In Feng Shui, you never want to put any tall columnar objects in the center of your home or office.
Tall columnar items can represent a tree that is digging into the earth or a metal rod digging out the earth. Think of these types of objects like a shovel, both uprooting and disturbing the earth.
For instance, tall metal or wood bookshelves or tall lamps could be dangerous to your health in this area.
When buying or remodeling a home, please do try to stay away from spiral staircases regardless of its location in the house. No other object can drain energy, or Chi, faster.
A spiral staircase is like a tornado funnel that sucks up everything and uproots everything in its path. In this case, it is the energy in your home or business.
As with all of the areas of a home or office, the Health area in Feng Shui should be absolutely free of clutter.
Make sure you have a clear pathway to get around.
Think of the Health Gua and the areas around it to be like the body’s heart and circulatory system which moves blood and fluids to our other appendages and organs (various Guas).
You don’t want all the trash and junk blocking energy from freely moving throughout your home, just as you wouldn’t want cholesterol and calcification deposits to block blood from moving through your arteries and veins.
If all else fails in Feng Shui please do try to keep the house clutter-free as this is the most effective and lowest cost thing you can do for your health.
Do this before adding any elements and colors to your Health Gua and before you even think about boosting the other areas of the Bagua, regardless of how much you desire to improve other areas of your life like wealth or fertility.
Do you have a unique situation at your home or office? Perhaps you are missing this entire section from your floor plan or it inherently has some sort of dangerous item, such as a bathroom, spiral staircase, or garage?
