In traditional Chinese Feng Shui, Metal Element is the most commonly used remedy for the negative Earth energies. 


Copper, silver, gold and bronze are a few variations of Metal Element. Metal Element can also be represented by color white, silver, grey or gold.


It is necessary to point out that wind chimes are rarely used in traditional Chinese Feng Shui. Wind chimes are very strong metal element. When they are misused, they can create health issues.

Holistic living means taking care of your entire self; mind, body, emotions and soul. It's having the awareness that each of these areas connect and influence one another.

You are living holistically by practicing mindfulness, fueling your body with clean food, routinely mediating...but at the same time, are you aware of the connections between yourself and your space that you are living in? Are you aware of the effects it has on your well-being?

A Feng Shui home connects your mind, your body, your emotions, your soul and your space all together. A Feng Shui home will nourish you and help you live whole.

By examining our home with Feng Shui, we can also find a new way of understanding ourselves. We then might start making changes. 

Sometimes it can be large-scale renovations and sometimes it can be as subtle as just clearing clutter, adding plants or rearranging furniture.

No matter how little you do, it will help the energy shift and change of Qi flow.

Feng Shui is not disruptive. Rather, it is an art of living in harmony with our environment and nature.

Removing natural features is not integral to the ethics of Feng Shui. If the natural features carry too much destructive energy, we would try to avoid or neutralize it instead of trying to compete with it.

Based on all personal situations, we can work to find realistic solutions in order to create a personalized Feng Shui home that makes you thrive.

Learn to take cues from nature, especially when you are at low point in your life. After all, human beings and nature share similar universal forces and cycles.

Opposites are constantly interacting with each other - this is the concept of Yin and Yang principle.

An imbalance of energy can show up in our life in various ways - through stress, illness and recurring challenges etc. The more they show up, the more closely the flow of balance and harmony need to be examined throughout our home. Once the imbalance is remedied, you will thrive again.

In Five Element, Autumn corresponds to Metal. In the Reductive Cycle, Water drains Metal. In our body, Metal corresponds to our lungs, throat, nose and tongue. Our lungs dominate our skin and hair.

in Autumn, nature reserves. Our body's Qi withholds inward. Our lungs are particularly prone to dryness. When our lungs lose moisture balance, it can result in coughing - Hemoptysis in some extreme cases.

When our nose loses moisture balance, it can result in bleeding or itchiness. The itchiness can result in excessive fluid secretion. The excessive fluid secretion can result in allergies - symptoms including sneezing or running nose.

Our lungs dominate our skin and hair. When our lungs lose moisture balance, we may experience excessive hair loss or excessively dry skin.

What can YOU do? Drink water - the least you can do.

Flying Star provides the map of Qi of each home. It tells us about the kinds of energy that flow in each area. Once we have obtained the Flying Star chart, we can begin to evaluate the usage of space in a home.

For frequently used rooms, we try to designate them to the areas that have auspicious stars. For example, the dining room, the most favorable stars are the stars of health and prosperity. The worst stars are the stars of illness.

We live in a world of constant change. These changes are eternal. Change is the essence of life. It is the immutable laws of the universe. It may seem complicated but fundamentally is the interaction and the relationship between the two polar energies - Yin and Yang.

In a harmonious Feng Shui home, you could always find an almost even blend of Yin and Yang energy. It goes without saying that depending on the activities conducted in one specific room, it can be more Yin than Yang and vice versa but overall the Yin and Yang are in good balance.

As our children and teens spend more time on screens because of virtual school, not being able to spend time with friends in person and less physical activities as sports, on top of everything else, we as parents concern about their emotional well-being, especially during this critical time when they are feeling isolated, anxious and depressed.

How can we help them?


Is our home designed for unity and communications? Is it providing calming energy? Are their rooms feeling balanced? Try to examine their living environment with a Feng Shui eye and make changes as needed. It could potentially help them to sleep better, eat better, communicate better and experience less moodiness issues.

Although the general Feng Shui principles for evaluating a house and an apartment are similar, there are many details that are specific to apartments, for example, the architectural layout of the main entrance of the building, the arrangement of the units, the position of elevators, stairways and landings, the location of parking area and so on.

Apartments have more limitations to implement Feng Shui remedies than single family homes, therefore, getting a Feng Shui analysis prior to purchasing or renting would be ideal.

A Feng Shui dining room could not only enhance family unity Qi, but also promote success in social activities.

While your personal tastes and needs are the priority, there is a lot more to consider:

  • Shape and material of the table to encourage conversation

  • Position of the chairs to assure comfort and ease

  • Head of the household gets the Command Position for security and control

  • Overhead lighting fixture to balance Yin and Yang

  • If and what centerpiece to add to the serenity of the meal

Standing at house entrance looking inside, there are many Sha Qi that need to be avoided. There are so many of them that a lot of times when we managed to avoid one, another one comes up. The most effective solution is to add a foyer.

The most common internal Sha Qi at a house entrance are:

  • The entrance is facing stairs

  • The entrance is facing a room door

  • The entrance aligns with the back door

  • Seeing mirror as soon as the entrance door is opened

  • Seeing kitchen at the entrance, especially the cooktop

  • Seeing bathroom at the entrance or bathroom next to the entrance

It is not easy to find a house/lot that is "Good for People, Good for Money".

Between house type "Good for People, Not Good for Money" and "Good for Money, Not Good for People", the former is preferred because when we have health, we could work for money. If we are ill, no money would come.

There is no fortune-telling or superstition in traditional Chinese Feng Shui, only environmental influences that we could choose either to ignore or take advantage of.

Even in the same community, Feng Shui of each house varies depending on the compass reading of the sitting and facing direction, the relation between the site of building and the configurations of roads, the view and the construction date.


The bigger environment is usually out of our control, and sometimes there is no remedy. What we can do is when we select a house/lot, at least try to avoid road patterns that carry destructive Qi. For example, house inside a noose, house at sharp bend in road, house at dead end of road, house at T junction and so on.  

As you are in the process of cleaning out your home, have you come across objects that lower your mood or maybe remind you of a painful experience?

Objects that we surround ourselves with, unless we use or genuinely love, they would create stagnant Qi in our living environment. As the stagnant Qi is building up every day, it makes it harder to get the life transformations that our heart desires.

How about starting to let go of whatever objects that do not serve your goal of creating a home that only supports, comforts, heals and inspires you?

The Yin and Yang balance of a room varies depending on the actual usage of the room.

Lighting can be an inexpensive way to manage the Yin and Yang. Dimmer switches would be a great solution that allows us to determine how much lighting is needed for one particular space at a particular time.

Exposed lamp cords carry an electrical charge which can be a hazard. They are also a visual Sha Qi that needs to be avoided.

In traditional Chinese Feng Shui, all the people who protect us, help us or make our life easier, are called "Helpful People". They can be friends, doctors, caregivers or even a stranger. We need "Helpful People" throughout our lifetime.

For example, in a highly competitive workplace, except knowledge, skills and hard work, the "Helpful People" is also an important factor that would directly affect our performance and promotion.

Through some Feng Shui work at home, we can strengthen, promote and increase the "Helpful People" Qi.

Vehicular traffic brings unpredictable energy and usually too rush of Qi.

Ideally garages should be isolated from the main house.


The most destructive type of garage is the one that occupies the entire first floor and the entire house is perched on pillars. Such architecture is undesirable because it destabilizes our living environment. After some period of time, the draining energy could result in poor sleep quality or illness.

Has your home decor been updated since you moved in? If not, try to look deeper and find out if your underlying root issue is the fear of change, maybe? 

How about switching your furniture configurations around so you can start to feel the change of Qi flow in your home already? Try to move your bed or your desk first and see what happens.

"Qi" is the core concept in traditional Chinese Feng Shui. The most critical technique of Feng Shui practitioners is to manipulate Qi.

Our home needs to absorb only the good Qi. It also needs to be able to collect and accumulate the good Qi throughout the house.


If the Qi is being directed in an appropriate way, our family will thrive. As a contrary, if a home is retaining Sha Qi (unfavored Qi), we could expect major issues including accidents, illness, divorce and so on.

Toilet, shower and bathtub in the bathroom are all draining energy, but on the other hand, they allow us to get rid of waste and unwanted Qi that we might have accumulated during the day.

In traditional Chinese Feng Shui, bathrooms relate to Water Element. Water is a symbolism of money and wealth. It is important to always make sure that there are no consistent leak occurring because it is a metaphor of money loss.

Life Cycle 8 (that we are currently at) starts from Feb 4th, 2004 to Feb 3rd 2024. Below 6 directions are all “Good for People, Good for Money”.

Sitting between 22.5 ~ 37.5 NE  Facing between 202.5 ~ 217.5 SW

Sitting between 202.5 ~217.5 SW  Facing between 22.5 ~ 37.5 NE

Sitting between 127.5 ~ 142.5 SE  Facing between 307.5 ~ 322.5 NW

Sitting between 307.5 ~ 322.5 NW  Facing between 127.5 ~ 142.5 SE

Sitting between 142.5 ~ 157.5 SE  Facing between 322.5 ~ 337.5 NW

Sitting between 322.5 ~ 337.5 NW  Facing between 142.5 ~ 157.5 SE

Children are highly impressionable and susceptible to their environments. They are so sensitive that imbalances of their spaces could only be amplified much more.

In general, regular or symmetrical shaped rooms make children feel more stable and safe. Square-shaped elements are recommended, especially when they have discipline problems or need a strong sense of order.

Children are constantly growing and changing, so do their tastes and needs. The furniture and decorative elements should change accordingly.

Small-scale renovations can be used as countermeasures and turn destructive areas favorable. 

Although it does not generate a new Flying Star analysis as the large scale renovations, we are able to incorporate auspicious areas into the living space, avoid destructive areas and move problem-causing elements to more desirable areas.

Small-scale renovations include changing locations of entrances, moving fireplaces, closing up windows, or repositioning walls.

Do you know that large-scale renovations can be used as countermeasures and alter the permanent house type of your home? 

If the renovations are finished in a different Life Cycle than the home was built initially, it will generate a new Flying Star analysis which can be more favorable. 

We are currently under Life Cycle 8, which is from 2004 to 2023. If you are wanting a change in life and are ready for transformations, there is no better time than now to start working on your home renovation plan.

Gorgeous fireplaces can create fantastic focal points, and they also create a cozy atmosphere. In some cases, we should avoid adding a fireplace to our new home.

In Feng Shui, Fire element promotes aggression, production and proliferation, therefore we do not recommend for occupants who have been diagnosed with cancer because Fire element supports the cancer cells to grow and mutate much faster. 

Except the actual fire (such as fireplaces and candles), Fire element is also represented by the color red and triangular shapes.

The general appearance of a house can affect its Feng Shui, and consequently the well-being of the occupant(s).

Houses surrounded by pillars or columns have a tendency to generate financial problems, legal issues or obstacles in business. Houses that appear to be weighed down by a large object have a tendency to have the occupant(s) dominated by other people. Houses that appear to be chopped up have a tendency to promote separations and split-up.

Qi enters and exists through our home entrance.


Good Feng Shui entrance can circulate benevolent Qi and block destructive Qi. As a result, it enhances our well-being.


On the other hand, bad Feng Shui entrance can block the circulation of benevolent Qi, turn it into negative, and let it escape. As a result, we can suffer from illness, bankruptcy or breakup of relationships.

The orientation of the house affects the Qi dispersion with the house.

With Luopan compass reading, we could determine which of the 24 Directions the house sits. From this, we could accurately determine the "Feng Shui Blueprint" of the house. By overlaying this "Map of Qi" on the floor plan, we can see what remedies might be necessary to bring a space into balance.

In traditional Chinese Feng Shui, we try to avoid a straight path through the house from the front door to the back door.

Such design does not allow the Qi to accumulate. It almost has a "shotgun effect" of Qi which can be too strong and too destructive.

A good Feng Shui home has Qi that meanders, not rushes.

In a home, if the main floor is broken into varying levels, the Qi tends to get stagnant at the lower levels. On the other hand, such architectural design also tends to drain the energy from the occupant(s).

Psychologically, it can be confusing too. In some cases, split levels are deceiving and subconsciously uncomfortable.

Nowadays we are so used to high-paced life. We are running fast to where we want to be. We have no time for our loved ones, our friends, or even ourselves. 


The process of implementing Feng Shui into our homes should not be stressful. It actually reminds us to slow down with our life. We would think about our life goals, examine our surroundings, alter the Qi flow and embrace the benevolent energy.

Sunlight, air and water are essential to life. In Feng Shui, they are important to the entire evaluation too.

In a home, sunlight reveals the "Helpful People" Qi. Do you have people or friends who always generously help you, especially when it is much needed?

Air reveals the health condition of the occupant(s). Is the Qi stagnant? Is there odor of cigarettes or pets? Are there too many windows that Qi just disperses?


Water reveals the money flow. Is the water circulating? Are the pool and fountain always clean? Is there any pipes clogging or leaking?

Over these years, through learning Feng Shui, I learn to live a conscious life.

The more I know about Feng Shui, the less mysterious or "magical" Feng Shui appears to me. There is no doubt that the precious accumulated and developed formulas and calculations are the scientific basis of Feng Shui, but at the same time, it also has a lot to do with intuition and common sense.

It is about being aware our living environment can directly affect us. It is a process of thinking about our decisions rather than making them without thought.

If you were told that you need to position your front door to a certain direction for good Feng Shui, even if it is different than the front of the house, it is not true.

In traditional Chinese Feng Shui, we try to avoid having the main entrance door constructed at an angle to the rest of the house. The angle creates Sha Qi (unfavoured energy).


A good Feng Shui home complements the architectural design, not breaks it.

Xuan Kong is known as the time and space theories of Feng Shui. 

Through the completed Xuan Kong chart, we could build a house that is "Good for People, Good for Money". 

Since the analysis is based on an exact compass orientation and the planned time of construction, the Qi layout for the house can be one of the 216 possible patterns. We determine and use the pattern of energy based on the lot / land and the primary occupant(s).

A master bedroom with many odd angles may lead to marital and/or health issues. It is the Angle Sha that we always try to avoid.

Square room is ideal because the four corners allows the Qi to rest. If the room has odd angles, the Qi is directed towards the center or even at you. If you try to imagine the Qi flows as water, how an sharp inward pointing wall could change the flow?

Feng Shui Consultant Naples Florida Jun Feng Shui @naplesfengshui
Feng Shui Consultant Naples Florida Jun Feng Shui @naplesfengshui

In traditional Chinese Feng Shui, we try to avoid beams. Beams create downward Qi and can be difficult on health and relationships, especially when we place our bed or main seating beneath them.

If they are unable to be avoided, using a false ceiling or even draped fabric can slow down the Qi. If it does not work, at least try to place yourself between beams or leave a gap beneath them.

If your dream master suite includes a stunning walk-in closet, be aware that the walk-in closet greatly affects the Qi of the entire master bedroom, and consequently affects your sleep as well.

As a general rule, try to avoid having the opening of the walk-in closet facing the bed, especially the facing side(s) has mirrors on it. Designs like this tend to make you feel uneasy.

The ancient Chinese people humanized the residence, which indicates that if the home is in good balance, it benefits the people.

"The house takes the topography as its body, water as its blood, land as its skin and flesh, grass and trees as its hair, huts as its clothing, and door as its crown. If it is like this, it is graceful. It is good luck and good fortune."

If our home has stagnant Qi, we could expect little personal growth in life. We could easily either live in the past feeling depressed and sad or live in the future feeling anxious and terrified. 

What creates stagnant Qi in our home?

Expired food, artificial flowers, leaves-turning-yellow plants, gifts from last Christmas that are still hanging around somewhere...and STUFF.

Feng Shui Consultant Naples Florida Jun Feng Shui @naplesfengshui

Having issues with your relationship? Concerned about your health? Or simply need a better night's sleep?

Our bedroom is our sanctuary. It's our protection from the world, a place for privacy and a place for rejuvenation. It plays a significant role to our love life, health and well-being.

As a general rule, the bed should be placed in the Command Position to provide the occupant(s) protection and support while they sleep. It needs to be against a solid wall with no openings, have a sturdy headboard and have a view of the door.

We commonly hear clients saying " I am not having enough energy".

Look around your home. Does it feel alive to you? A bad Feng Shui home can suck your own life force. A good Feng Shui home, on the other hand, is bursting with good Qi, which can be contributed by scent, music, plants, flowers and pets.

Or, if you prefer, just take an aromatherapy bath!

Corridors with bad Feng Shui can turn positive Qi into negative Qi (Sha Qi). It can also trap destructive Qi inside the house.

As a general rule, we try to avoid corridors that are long, narrow, dim, with dead ends. 

A long corridor with a door to a room at the end should not be designated as a master suite or a room for the primary occupant(s).

The traditional Chinese Feng Shui is more than furniture positioning, design elements, green living, decluttering and organizing. 

It is a process that needs to be personalized for the individual.

If a Feng Shui consultation concentrates on only paint colors or tips for organizations, the result would be immediate but superficial. Once the focus is shifted deeper into all areas of individual's life, a real Feng Shui home is being created - a home that inspires, feels balanced and healthy, supports your goals and make you thrive.

According to Flying Star, a eight-eight combination forebodes fame and wealth under life cycle 8 (from 2004 to 2023).


If we situate our study or home office in this eight-eight palace, students will excel in school and any business venture planned and conducted in this room will thrive.

In general, when it comes to creativity, productivity and career advancement, we need to look at Flying Star chart looking for auspicious combination of the stars in order to designate  a room that encourages prosperity and success.

A built structure is influenced by the Qi from the Heaven and the Qi from the Earth.


Before a structure is built, the Qi flows freely over the land. Once a foundation is placed, directional orientation is created, walls and roof are put on, the Qi inside the structure is captured. This captured Qi remains where it is until the structure is torn down.


During the life of this structure, there are influences from Qi that visits each year, however, the nature of the Qi remains fixed.

Feng Shui Consultant Naples Florida Jun Feng Shui @naplesfengshui

At all time, a human being is subject to the influence of time, space and climate of the universe. 

High altitude has less air or pressure. Air pressure decreases with altitude. This is a scientific fact. Inside a building structure where we live, the movement of the air is precisely the "air", "current" or "energy" that Chinese geomancy refers to. It is called "Qi". When Qi is directed in a knowledgeable way, it can promote harmony, prosperity, good health and long life.

Good architecture does not equal good Feng Shui. A well-positioned garage is extremely critical when we design a new home.

Energy brought to the house by cars can affect the health and fortunes of the occupants.

Cars driving into the garage destabilize energy in the rooms above. Cars driving towards living space in the house create flow of Qi that might be too strong.

Feng Shui Consultant Naples Florida Jun Feng Shui @naplesfengshui

Sha Qi is any negative influence. It can be any of the sensory forms of sight, sound, smell, touch or feelings. It is anything that is uncomfortable to our senses. Sha comes in six types. Five related to the senses:

  • Sight Sha

  • Sound Sha 

  • Smell Sha 

  • Touch Sha

  • Feeling Sha

The sixth is the internal feelings we get.


When we examine the internal Feng Shui (of a home), one of the most important work is to reduce the Sha Qi and improve the occupant's comfort.

Sitting and Facing is the easiest concept to explain but the most difficult concept to use. The theory behind it is simple but its application is difficult because there are so many varying architectural styles and designs. 


Essentially, it is the Yin and Yang sides of a building. In traditional Chinese Feng Shui, it is described as the Open or Closed side of a building.


It is the entry point for the Qi in the building that determines the nature of the building, not the door or the view.
