As I mentioned in my previous posts, Feng Shui is about balancing Yin and Yang. However, to put context into that statement, when I say balance, it only means that Yin should not be totally absent, but the balance doesn’t mean it should be equal. Our homes and offices should be more Yang than Yin. Churches, cemeteries are more yin than yang.
What does it mean? It means that our living or workspaces should be infused with more Yang energy. It should connote life. If your house is too Yin, it will attract negative energies.
Oftentimes, if you just moved into a house that has been abandoned for a long time, it’s not surprising for you to feel eerie. You may be feeling the heavy Yin energy and/or you may actually be feeling negative energies such as lost souls or bad spirits who has taken residence in the house because of its accumulated Yin energy.
However, in our busy, competitive, and modern lifestyle, a lot of our younger generation has moved into an apartment or a condominium to become more independent. But this also means that you usually leave the house without a single ‘living energy’, thus creating Yin energy.
If you live on your own and spends more time outside your house or if you and your family plans to travel for a long time, you have to ensure that you keep your empty house alive.
If you and your family is going to take a long vacation and nobody is going to be left behind, please ensure that you keep your curtains open to allow sun light in. The sun’s light will ensure that your house will be infused with Yang energy everyday. If you live in a safe place, try to keep a small window open; to make sure that energy inside the house circulates. If possible try to ask somebody to go to your house every 3 days to turn the lights on, and make some nice noise by playing some music.
If you live on your own, also make sure that you leave your curtains open to ensure that the sun’s light comes in and infused your condo unit or apartment with Yang energy. If you’re out of your home longer than you are inside your home, try to leave a battery-operated radio and keep it playing. I’m suggesting a battery operated radio because it’s safer than keeping an electricity running unmanned. You can also buy a battery operated mantra player. It will keep playing a mantra making sure that your unit is not only infused with Yang energy but it also leaves a blessing brought about the mantras.
