In Chinese feng shui, sometimes the smallest detail can cause the biggest threat. For example, just think of sharing a tent with a mosquito!
Using the science of kinesiology, also known as "muscle testing," I have been able to show my clients how the little conditions in their environment can have a huge impact. And one of these conditions is known as "poison arrows."
In Chinese, good energy is known as "feng shui", and negative energy is called "shar chi," The causes of this "shar chi" can be numerous, but sometimes it can be created from a small detail which negatively impinges on the space.
One of the leading causes of "shar chi" are sharp corners that face towards doorways, beds, and sitting areas. These could be from the corners of walls, furniture, or even other buildings facing towards you.
Years ago, I was visiting one of my brothers in Florida, and we drove past a modern building which had a triangular shape, with the sharp corner of the building facing the roadway. I mentioned to my brother that this was very negative "chi", and he mentioned that the shopping center across the street went out of business!
The same impact could be happening in your own home. Notice if you have sharp corners of any sort facing your seating area, bed, dining table, etc. And, if so, find a way to soften the impact of this sharp energy.
Often, you can diffuse the effect by moving the corners of furniture, so they do not face you directly, Or, put a house plant in front of a corner of a wall or bookcase (but make sure it is a very hardy plant!)
And, if the corners of other buildings face your home, consider landscaping options, to diffuse the energy in a similar way.
Good luck, and beware of the Poison Arrows!
