In a previous article I talked about how environmental energies could enhance prosperity or bring about misfortune. Just how much of an impact can they have?  I recently did a Feng Shui consultation for a family who had called me because they were having financial difficulties. They sensed that the energies in their home were causing money woes.

After drawing up the natal chart of the home, calculating birthdates and analyzing planetary influences, I could clearly see that the home had tremendous money luck potential for the husband. So it puzzled me that since moving into this home 4 years back, the family had lost more than $2 million – a loss that had totally wiped out their cash and other assets.  A loss of this magnitude (or any loss for that matter) will clearly be reflected in the environment. So I looked closer to find the source of the hidden energies at work.

As I walked the perimeter of my client’s property, I suddenly discovered the problem: the roads surrounding the property. While the home itself showed tremendous money luck potential, these roads carried clashing energy that – without powerful Feng Shui cures – destroyed my client’s ability to make and keep money while living in the house!

Energy clashes can take many forms and affect more than money. A while back, a friend of mine told me about a “cursed” house. In every family that had lived in the house, a female member of the family had died shortly after moving in. Upon examining the Feng Shui of the house, I discovered that powerful energies were at work. The way the house was positioned on the cul-de-sac created a clash of energies that created an incredibly harmful energetic environment for women. While karma takes us to a home where we are to live out our destiny, remember that we can use our Earth Luck – or Feng Shui and Vaastu – to help neutralize negative environments.

Unlike the New Age “one size fits all” Feng Shui, authentic Feng Shui and Vaastu (Indian Feng Shui) combine principles of environmental science with complex mathematical formulas to analyze exactly how the powers of the land, time and space affect the fortunes of a home and its occupants. If negative events arise suddenly – or if a property has been home to a long history of misfortunes – there is absolutely an energetic conflict at work. While an expert analysis is needed to identify and neutralize the impact of environmental energies, here are some general tips for spotting situations where environmental influences are at play.

1. Did the previous occupants incur bankruptcy? If so, the situation may have been caused – or at least aggravated – by clashing energies. For example, near where I live there’s a commercial property. In the last 5 years, all 4 businesses that have moved into that space have gone out of business in about a year. Yes, I know these are hard times for all businesses, especially small ones. But bad Feng Shui can sink a business even in good times. A while back, for instance, I went with some business people to look at a retail location that should have been a goldmine: great traffic patterns, upscale address, it had everything going for it except the energetic environment. The clash of energies at the location was monumental. After seeing the site and calculating the energetic forces at work, it was no surprise to learn that the former occupants of the site had failed to stay afloat.

2. Is there a repeated pattern of divorce, cancer, etc.?  I recently examined a housing development where rows of townhomes were perpendicular to each other. In one particular row, I noticed that even though the homes face different directions and have different natal charts, the energetic forces swirling around them indicated marital discord. That flow of energy is like a magnet – attracting people who will indeed live out their karma to become divorced. Shortly after running this analysis, I spoke with someone who knew the families in that row of townhomes. I told her what the energy patterns indicated and she was amazed: it seems that in the past month, men in two different-facing homes had indeed left their wives.

So what does this mean for you?

For starters, never ever move into a home or business space without doing your homework on the history of the home and its occupants.

Second, it’s very important to have a Classical Feng Shui or Vaastu expert look at the property before you commit to moving in. Just as a home inspection makes sure a home is structurally sound, a Feng Shui and Vaastu consultation makes sure your home is energetically sound. And choosing a location that naturally supports good fortune, protects you from misfortune and even alters an otherwise sad destiny is a million times easier than having to constantly put remedies in place to neutralize dangerous energetic patterns.

These “before you buy” consultations save so much money and misfortune down the road.
