Energy Drains That Divert or Siphon Life Force
Energy drains may be conspicuous or obscure. They may have a large impact or a nuanced one. It is only after you take action to remedy them that you will access better flow in your home or office.
Scientific Feng Shui deals with these energy drains with remedies that blend in with the rest of the interior or exterior environment. Once you understand why these energy drains have an effect on you and your home or business life, you’ll be sensitive to them. Here are a few energy drains that you may encounter:
- An open ditch or steep slope can divert your abundance, health, and relationship qi by diverting the energy flow downward. The remedy for a slope would be a natural barrier (trees, hedges, etc), lighting or colorful garden decor to divert the qi around the garden rather than falling down the slope. If there’s an open ditch it should be filled or divert the qi flow around it with natural elements such as flowers/foliage. Crystals at the edge can also keep the qi from draining into the ditch. If this isn’t possible add a hedge or flowers between your door and the ditch to invite the flow of qi toward your building.
- Stairs in front of the door, both exterior and exterior, may impede the natural flow of qi, causing an energetic struggle. Plants, lighting, and reflective objects can invite the qi flow upward and prevent it from tumbling backward. Adding plants to the landings and base of the stair will also gently move the qi flow.
- Dried flowers or dead and struggling plants drain the life from your home or office. Living plants not only breathe life force into the environment but they filter toxins from the air.
- Nearby fast-moving roadways are the equivalent of fast-moving rivers/streams which carry the qi away from the building. Hedges, flowers and trees provide a buffer and slow the qi flow. Crystals and wind chimes also divert the energy to a gentle flow.
- Eyesores such as waste receptacles are known as “visual sha” and add a low-frequency vibration. Keep them away from the entry of your home or office, where the qi enters. They should always be kept inside a containment that covers them from view.
- Long hallways either drain the intensity of qi or have a “racetrack” effect, similar to a busy roadway. To keep the gentle flow, use objects like plants, mirrors, lighting, and pictures to invite the flow. In the case of a very long hallway, place something at the end like a plant or picture. Many condos, apartments and offices have the entries on a long corridor. Adding a plant or decorative items outside the door (even on the door) will move the energy to your door. If possible, add a doormat in front of the door.
- Elevators in front of a door are a drain and are an energetic metaphor for “ups & downs.” If you have an elevator in front of your door, it’s a good idea to place plants or other decorative objects between your door and the elevator. In some instances, public buildings have plants and lighting on either side of the elevator, which will help mitigate the energetic drain. A doormat in front of your door will also help mitigate the energetic drain.
- High tension wires & electrical boxes emit EMFs that can disrupt your life force flow and even contribute to physical & mental illness. Natural filters for these would be trees and hedges. If you don’t have good natural filters, use wind chimes, crystals, and potted plants to help mitigate the effects of EMFs.
When you are facing issues like this, it’s also a good idea to activate the interior and/or exterior of your building with water. It captures energy and infuses it with abundance. Wherever there is gentle water, the energy is auspicious. Energetically, its yin quality will temper any “sha” or unstable yang energy.
