Feng shui is a common sense approach to living a life in harmony with the environment. It has a rich history that spans over thousands of years. When used properly, you may find yourself being blessed with good health, wealth, and good luck. The problem is that, feng shui is shrouded with myths and misconceptions. Because of this, a lot of people put into practice the wrong kind of feng shui and then claim that it doesn’t work.
Here are 4 feng shui myths you need to stop believing.
A bagua mirror will protect your home
Many of you have probably heard that a bagua mirror can help reflect away bad luck and attract good energy into your home. But guess what? Mirrors don’t have the ability to determine whether it’s good or bad energy. How will it be able to know which types of energy to reject and which one to attract?
Certain plants bring luck and money
Money plants are popular among people who are looking for abundance and prosperity. They believe that these plants would attract money and success into their lives. That said, they would scoure some stores in the hopes of finding the perfect money plant for their home. What they fail to realize is that, any type of plant with soft, flowing energy will bring positive energy. So instead of spending money on a new plant, just take good care of the plants you have in your home.
Moving your furniture will change your life
Most people turn to feng shui for good luck and prosperity. Feng shui masters may ask you to move your furnitures around to refresh the energy flow in your living space. This may bring about luck, but that doesn’t mean that you’ll see significant changes in your life.
Moving and re-arranging your furniture won’t help you meet the love of your life or bring about professional success. If you want to get a promotion, then you need to work hard for it. Feng shui will help bring good luck into your life, but you need to take action if you want to succeed.
Red front door will bring good luck
Red, in Chinese, is considered as a lucky color. That, plus the belief that attracting good luck starts at the front door, people believe that having a red front door will bring good luck. Not necessarily.
Red serves as an enhancer. It doesn’t attract positive energy. Rather, it enhances the energy in your home. If you are having problems, there’s a good chance that your front door is located in an area with problematic energy. By painting the front door red, you are only enhancing that kind of energy.
