Once done, specific cures can be placed if there are health issues within the household. Plants are fantastic cures as long as they are thriving and in good health. Try using ‘lucky bamboo’ or pothos plants. Both are fairly easy to keep alive in almost any environment. Round leaves are good, jagged leaves are not so good! As always, if a green thumb eludes you, artificial plants will serve the same purpose. It is crucial to keep artificial plants clean and dust free. Art depicting healthy flora also works, just be sure the piece speaks to you and lifts your spirit. If you don’t love it, don’t display it!
Tortoises may also be displayed as they are auspicious symbols of long life, wisdom and peace. Display a photo of the afflicted individual and place it next to a tortoise figure. Write a wish or positive affirmation for health and long life, place it in a red envelope and attach it to the backside of the photograph. Use salt to cleanse and purify. Simply fill any clear vessel about a third full with table salt and place in a window to absorb negative energies.
Bottle gourds or Wu Lou Gourds (photo below) also symbolize good health and are used to ward off any illness Chi. If the top of your gourd can be removed, place a wish for health inside the gourd or simply whisper your wish into the gourd, closing the top tightly afterward.
Feng Shui is all about intention. Be clear on your intention and place your cures with purpose and belief. I am certain your home will be healthy and happy!
Beauty. Balance. Blessings.
