Secrets of Bali
by Jonathan Copeland
Feng Shui, which started in China about 3,000 years ago, is about the flow of energy.
Feng Shui experts say that energy can be good or bad and bad energy can become trapped and prevent good things happening.
Energy should be kept flowing to create harmony and success in all things. There are easy ways to do this and reap the benefits.
The first thing to do is space clearing, that is to clear your space of bad energy. Then place your things in positions which help the flow of energy. Experts say the results can be immediate.
Before space clearing, clean your house well. Then clean yourself: have a bath or shower. Take off your jewelry and walk barefoot.
You need some equipment. You can provide some yourself - flowers, salt, holy water. You also need good quality items: candles, candlesticks, incense, incense holders, bell and harmony balls.
Experts say the best quality items are made in Bali. They produce the best results.
Start by lighting a candle, burn incense and fill a bowl with fresh flowers. Make some holy water by saying a prayer over it and pour a little over the flowers. Place the bowl on an offering stand if you have one. Place more candles and bowls of flowers around the house. Pour salt across house entrances.
Make sure the candles are in a candlestick or bowl and the incense in an incense holder for safety reasons. You are now ready.
Walk around the inside walls of the house and give a few claps at each corner. This gets rid of bad energy that is hanging around.
Then take your bell and walk around the same route, ringing the bell so that the sound continues all the time. Your house has now been purified and cleared of bad energy.
The next step is to fill your house with good feelings and intentions. This is done by sitting down and cupping one, two or three harmony balls in your cupped hands, and transferring your wishes into the balls.
Now walk around the same route, shaking the harmony balls, to fill your house with good feelings and intentions. They have a beautiful jingly-jangly sound. Harmony balls can be used repeatedly - but only by the same person.
The results can be very quick. Repeat space clearing as you feel the need.
Keep the energy flowing around your home.
Place your furniture and other items properly. Have nice bunches of fresh flowers. Fill a bowl of water and add a few drops of essential oils. Open up spaces with mirrors. Framed mirrors are best.
Metal wind chimes produce beautiful sounds and purify energy as it passes through. Bamboo wind chimes hanging from the eaves of buildings bring prosperity.
Mobiles activate energy. Heavy stonecarvings ground energy and are very effective in the right place.
In the garden bird houses and bird baths bring high energy by attracting birds. Success can also be achieved by symbolic wooden flowers, wooden fruit and wooden ducks.
