Feng Shui Cures Using Specific Methods

There will be a variety of ways to clear their energy because there are so many feng shui cures; here are some examples to make it easier for you.


  • Feng shui cures that are implemented as part of your home or office:

For example, tall lights, feng shui art, wooden sculptures, and so on): Smudging and incense, as well as temporarily moving them to a new location, are the best ways to clear the space.

  • Made from iron, brass, silver and etc:

A variety of statues and objects, such as Chinese coins, wind chimes, and so on): Sun or moon water, as well as sage or incense, and candles/fire energy, are the most effective methods.

  • Feng shui cures that are alive, such as plants and fish in aquariums:

These will benefit from the sage and incense (space clearing techniques), as well as from moving them to a new location for at least several days to refresh their energy.

  • Feng Shui cures made from stones and crystals:

Actual crystals or stone statues/items, use all of the above methods: sun, moon, sage or incense, candles or salt. For a deep cleansing effect, bury your crystal or items made from crystals in salt for three days.

Perfect timing

The three-day period is typically used to allow for the cleansing of a feng shui cure, but the seven-day period can also be used if necessary. The moon cycle is another factor to consider. When the moon is waning, it is the best time to cleanse (the time between the full and the new moon). When it comes to the time daylight, begin the process of cleansing your feng shui cures when the day’s energy is at its peak (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.). It is never a good idea to begin the cleansing process late at night.
