To improve the positive chi in this thread, I think it could use a new positive post.



and a smiley here

and a small boxed smiley here

Isn't that better?

The small boxed smiley is clearly negative. The box impedes the flow of energy, so the box fills with negative thoughts which attract negative energy.

Toilet Sha is the worst. If it happens to be your health sector you gonna stink whatever scent you may use.
If it is your wealth sector, mind you, the money will go down to your neighbours flat below .

[Eric Clapton mode]
guitar intro
When you want to get rich
Put bamboo in a niche
Feng Shui

When you're feeling sad,
It means your light is bad
Feng Shui

It's defined
In your mind
You can find: Feng Shui!

The magic compass shows
The way Chi energy flows
Feng Shui

Move your furniture 'round
You won't have sorrows to drown
Feng Shui

You will find
What's aligned
Given time: Feng Shui...

The only thing anybody needs to read from that link is:

It is very easy to discredit a practice like Feng Shui
The rest of the link is meaningless tripe and drivel.

Did you know that the Feng Shui of the Mt. Rushmore Monument is all wrong and is debilitating America? We need to rotate them exactly 89.90 degrees clockwise.

Feng Shui is not superstitious. It merely looks superstitious because it is beyond science and hence science cannot explain it and neither can humans.

Sooo...if humans can't explain it, why exactly am I hiring a human Feng Shui expert??!

There are simply no chimpansee Feng Shui experts. (..for hire, that is.)
