Curing Negative Qi with unusual Feng Shui Cures and Enhancers
Feng Shui utilises cures and enhancers to deflect negative energy/Qi and to increase positive Qi, for example; a Ba Gua mirror. Each year we work out where to place a cure or enhancer in your home. The primary objective of this is to help you improve the quality of Qi throughout your own house. These cures and enhancers prevent any forecasted problems or misfortunes to help you enjoy a magnificent year. On a bigger scale, however, cures are also used on buildings for the same reason. A poorly structured and positioned construction can affect the entire neighbourhood either positively or negatively.
When planning construction, a Feng Shui architect will look at not only the land but other surrounding buildings. She will also note the direction of any mountains, rivers, lakes, oceans, etc. The architect will take all of this into consideration before sitting at the drafting table. If there’s anything in the immediate locale that could create an issue for the building and business, they would place an object on the exterior such as a cannon. The cannon would deflect the negative energy. This ploy is widespread in China (mainly Hong Kong).
Cures and Enhancers for Large Buildings
Look at the buildings in this image. The building on the left is the Bank of China a disaster from the start. Classified a failure with its negative energy ‘knife-edge’ pointing directly at the HSBC Bank (on the right). The Building also has negative ‘X’ shapes running up the sides. The construction was anticipated to cause economic stress. This stress would not only affect the HSBC Bank but also surrounding buildings and their businesses. Along with the disastrous structure, the original plan was to open on the auspicious date of 8th August 1988. The number 8 translates to ‘fortune’ and is a favourable number in Feng Shui. However, there was a delay in completion and the building eventually opened on the inauspicious date of 15th June 1990.
The predicted slump in the economy was realised so the HSBC Bank, on the right, took action. They erected a cannon to serve as the ‘cure’ right on the top of the building. The cannon was aimed directly at the Bank of China to deflect any negative Qi.
The building in the middle is the Cheung Kong Centre. This building was constructed to balance out the energy between the two rivalling banks. The skyscraper was built to allow good Qi to flow unhindered from the mountains and around the buildings.
Disguising a Cure and Enhancer
These cannon objects are often disguised to look more like satellites, air vents, or radio antennae. This image was kindly sent to Michael by Sofia, one of his clients. This Bulgarian property has a cannon perched on the balcony. Michael’s conclusion is that this could be a Feng Shui countermeasure against a problematic neighbour.
So, you’ll see the benefit of applying the cures and enhancers not only on the interior of your home but also, equally as important, on the exterior. When setting up your annual Feng Shui Kit spend time looking around your environment. Look at the properties surrounding you; is there anything that could reduce the quality of Qi flowing into your home?
