Simple Feng Shui tips for the home to create balance and harmony. Excellent Feng Shui cure is to remove instead of add items into the home.
Much of the literature written on Feng Shui is about Feng Shui cures you add to the home to create balance and harmony. Before you add a quick Feng Shui cure, clear the clutter and remove hazardous Feng Shui items from the home.
Each home is divided into nine sectors to symbolize important life attributes. The nine life areas; wealth, fame, personal relationships, creativity/children, helpful people/travel, career, knowledge, family, and health are all interlinked. The simplest Feng Shui cure is to take away the old before you bring in new.
Quick Feng Shui
Remove the listed items in each of the nine specific life areas. Work on one life area at time, otherwise it will be too overwhelming and exhausting to practice Feng Shui in the home.
The main objective of Feng Shui is to align your home with your life goals. Often our homes are not symbolic of our desires. It is best to have a simple home and to add to it rather than have a home overflowing with clutter and unwanted items.
Wealth (SE): Broken Items, dead plants, dried flowers, trash cans, toilets, dirt and clutter, items of your negative past experiences, empty boxes.
Fame (S): Water, mirrors, shiny things, reflective surfaces, black, dark blue, water fountains, objects that represent your past.
Personal Relationships (SW): Frigid stuff, unfriendly, solo and negative images. games, storage, single items, pairs that are mismatched(giraffe with a mouse), clutter.

Helpful People/ Travel (NW): Trash cans, dirt, dust, drains, junk, clutter, brilliant red, reminders of bad times.
Career (N): Squares, earth tone colors, dirt, clutter, images of what you do not desire (old pictures working at the grocery store…).

Before you place any cure, make a list of the things that are not working in a specific life area. Some of the best cures are not adding an element but taking one away.
Case Study: Client wanted to find a partner for marriage. She was dating irregularly and many of the men were goofs and uncommitted. After doing a consult, I noticed she collected pictures and objects of male chickens, which are also referred as cocks. I asked her to remove the pictures and in less than 1 week she had two guys asking her out. She has been with one of the men for over 16 months.
