Hauntings And Feng Shui: Avoiding the Paranormal Home Part 1

Sometimes avoiding some properties is the best way to harmonize with the environment. In the case of paranormal energy, or "hauntings" there are ways to look at the building and its environment to determine contributing factors to this phenomenon. This article explores environments and patterns to avoid with the type of properties that have been documented by paranormal researches as having paranormal activity.

Most people have some sort of belief in the afterlife. Most talk about the soul or spirit leaving the body after death. And though the story will vary by culture and religion, I find it amusing so many believers of the afterlife scoff at the notion that ghosts and spirits exist. But better research tools, more information about experiences and consistence evidence (though circumstantial) is building the case to validate people's experiences.

Paranormal studies often consider "energy" as a key characteristic in determining if a building has activity of the unexplained. As paranormal researchers seek to document evidence of a haunting and other unexplained events, the devices used are ones that allow them to read or capture fluctuations in energy patterns. Sometimes cameras and recorders are used to capture things that the five senses can not detect on their own. Thermal imaging cameras, temperature sensitive tools, and EMF devices are just a few items in their arsenal.

Whether you believe in ghosts or not, there is something to be said about strange occurrences with credible witnesses and unexplained evidence that makes us all realize we know less then we are willing to admit. The universe itself is a major unexplained phenomenon that no scientist or religious leader can state with conviction on how it works, why it works, nor can they proclaim we know everything there is to know about life itself.

Bad Feng Shui: Overgrown Bushes and Car Parts

It's Spring time which means weather is ripe outdoor projects. To create good Feng Shui, survey the outside of your home for negative influences on the property. Walk around the exterior of your home. What do you see?

Broken fixtures, fences, windows and any obvious feature in need of repair is a negative influence. Look for items not considered part of the natural "outdoor" environment. Examples are broken wheel barrels, car parts, and indoor furniture sitting outside. Invest in a garden shed if you are overflowing with items that you use. This prevents rusting and rotting in the outdoor environment. And of course, it puts them out-of-sight for you and your neighbors.

If your trees and shrubs are overgrowing it's time to trim them back. They should not overpower the home. And they should never block the energy path to your door. Bushes and shrubs are good for slowing down energy which is called for in some cases. But overgrowth is not. Call a local professional to reshape bushes and plants if too tough to tackle on your own.

After you have assessed the external property make a list of the negative influences observed on your walk. Tackle the easy projects first. Major projects might require more effort, planning and financial resources.

Taking the time to improve the area outside of your home creates a positive influence for the occupants. It also is positive for the neighbors in close proximity. The value of your home and  neighborhood are often judged by how well the occupants take care of the property. Do what you can to contribute to creating a positive environment.

When Identical Homes are Not Identical

Good Feng Shui can be the result of the layout of your home. Two identical homes in the same neighborhood can provide different results. Here is a past case that demonstrates the impact of two identical homes, with simply the layout flipped.

The client moved from the first home to the second home.  The first home had a small yard. The house behind it sat higher and uncomfortably close. This home did not lend itself to the feeling of peacefulness. And it is what inspired her to move. The second  home backed to a scenic area of the golf course.

The two homes had the same energy blueprint. The energy blueprint is the pattern of energy calculated in the home. It is based on the sitting and facing direction of the building and construction year.  The key difference between the two homes was the floorplan.

In the first home, the Master Bedroom and office were in areas that were strong influences for arguments, fights and illnesses. These are two key areas where most people spend time in their home. For this client, these influences had manifested in a relationship.

Overall, the client had made a better choice for her second home. The biggest difference was the position of the Master Bedroom and Office. They resided in better areas of the blueprint then the first home.

Both homes required a water feature on the back side of the home to support overall money. A real water feature is preferred, but a natural slope (depending on how steep it is) can be a substitute for a virtual water feature. Fortunately, she had both a real water feature and a preexisting slope to support prosperity luck. Her new home was a peaceful retreat which was personally beneficial to her well-being.

What is interesting is she made these choices not knowing anything about the advanced Feng Shui. For her she didn't feel comfortable in the first home, though it was identical to the second home in size, feature and design.  She made an intuitive decision that was on the mark.

A Locksmith Won't Have This Key To Unlock Your Home.

Energy patterns change all the time, every minute of every day according to Feng Shui. Each home has a unique energy pattern based on time, magnetic direction, and floor plan.  Eventually, time passes and the cumulative effects begin to have an impact on the occupants. The time periods commonly evaluated are on an annual basis and in accordance with a 20-year cycle.

During these periods buildings can go through a people or money "lock". This is based on the energy pattern calculated in your home. A people lock impacts health and relationships negatively for the occupants. A money lock can impact your finances and career (ability to make money).

In both occurrences, water is needed outside the home to release the lock. A lock can be for a year, which means money may be tight, or you may be bothered by more frequent health or relationship issues during the year of the lock. Typically, it could be something you get through, and just being aware of it can help you make better decisions. But a lock that is for a 20-year period takes its toll over time and can be more severe. This could show up as a continuous struggle for a long time if it goes uncorrected.

Every home eventually goes through a lock, but timing is different based on the home's unique pattern. As we begin to go through a new cycle, the impact may not be immediate. It could begin slowly and increase over time.  Increased health, relationship, financial or career problems may be signs that you are dealing with a lock.

Placing a water feature outside the home that includes clean, moving water can help release the lock. During the current cycle (2004-2023) there are beneficial locations to place water, and there is a specific place (Northeast section of your lot) that you want to avoid because it can impact your finances or your health negatively.
