Space Clearing Can Do for You
Space clearing is a powerful way to remove unwanted energy from your space and to fill your home with vibrant, positive chi. Some common situations in which space clearing is recommended include:
When you move into a new home or office,
to clear any negative "predecessor chi"
The idea of purifying and blessing a space through ritual is as old as time. As the popularity of feng shui has spread around the globe in recent years, and people have become more aware of the intimate connection between their own energy and that of their homes and offices, interest in space clearing has increased as well.
Here's a quick summary of the most common elements of space clearing, and why each is important.
INVOKING DIVINE ASSISTANCE
There are many different ways to do a space clearing, and entire books have been written on the topic. If you like spontaneity and improvisation, you may prefer to make up a ceremony of your own. If you prefer to follow a more traditional method, there are many resources available, including Christan Hummel's "Do It Yourself Space Clearing Kit" (see "Recommended Resources," below).
Ideally, your home should be clean and tidy before you begin any kind of space clearing ceremony. If you have a monster clutter problem, however, space clearing can be used to loosen up the old energy that is clogging up your home. This will make it easier to get started with your clutter clearing efforts. Getting rid of your clutter will shake a lot more energy loose, so you'll probably want to do another space clearing when you are done.
As we move into the busy holiday season, this is a good time to begin planning a space clearing ceremony for your home. Whether you wish to do this in the days before family arrive to celebrate a holiday with you, or after the December holidays to help you get ready for a New Year, a space clearing ceremony is a wonderful way to cherish yourself, your family, and your home.

Feng Shui Q+A
(Most questions will have been edited for clarity and length, and any identifying details have been changed. Please note that due to the high volume of email I receive, it is no longer possible for me to respond to every question personally. I still welcome your questions, and if I cannot provide a personal response I will try to address your issue in a future Q+A column.)
Q: : "I understand each individual has
a "kua" number (according to the date of birth) by which we can find
our "power spots." I am confused about whether to use the ba gua or
Your PERSONAL KUA NUMBER has nothing to do with the ba gua. The kua number determines which compass directions are supposedly "lucky" for you, and which are "unlucky." It even defines what direction your front door should face for best luck. However, these are not the same as the "life aspirations" defined by the ba gua.
"Power spots" is my own term for the areas in your home that most closely match your current life priorities, according to the life aspirations defined by the ba gua. Power spots and kua directions are not the same thing.
I want to stress that I give very little importance to personal kua numbers in my practice. This method can be helpful if you are choosing or building a house with your kua number/directions in mind. It is often very difficult to benefit from this method if you try to "retrofit" it onto a space that was not selected to suit your kua number.
I'm not saying that you should ignore your kua number directions if you wish to use them. Do be aware, though, that facing or sleeping in your lucky direction is pointless UNLESS that position also conforms to ALL the other guidelines for good feng shui. For example, your lucky directions may indicate that your best sleeping direction for health is with your head pointing NW, but in your home that may mean sleeping in the hallway or kitchen, or it might place your bed in a position that exposes you to harmful EMF radiation or another form of sha chi while you sleep -- which will do you much more harm than good.
I only use the personal kua directions when all the other guidelines for good feng shui can also be met, and suggest that you do the same.
If you don't know your kua number, and want to find
out what directions are lucky or unlucky for your, here's an online
