When I first started studying evaluating the Feng Shui in my home, I found a stopped clock on the wall of the area of our home associated with wealth and prosperity. I started wondering other than being operational and set to the correct time, are there more principles about clocks and Feng Shui? Are some areas of the home better than others for displaying clocks?
Here are some tips I gathered from various articles on Feng Shui:
- Auspicious Feng Shui areas to display clocks are the kitchen, living room, and home office. Clocks placed in areas of the house that have good chi will stimulate that chi by the movement of their hands or pendulums and therefore encourage the chi to circulate throughout the house.
- A broken clock or one with a dead battery must be repaired or removed immediately. A broken clock represents stagnate time. We want to move on and up, not go backwards or nowhere.
- Do not display big clocks in the bedroom, or, display several different clocks.
- Do not display clocks so that you can see them first thing as you enter the house.
- Do not display clocks, especially metal clocks in the East. The East direction represents family and health and is governed by the wood element. The theory is that a metal clock over powers the east sector, which can cause family to move on or health problems to occur.
After my initial pass through of my home, I found a clock with a dead battery in the guest bathroom, it has a new battery. I also found a decorative clock (in need of a batter) sitting right next to the alarm clock in my bedroom. It has a new battery now and a new home in the living room. In addition, in the rec. room another clock hadn’t been reset after daylight savings started. That’s a lot of stagnate Feng Shui in one home!
Where are your clocks? Do any need batteries or rest to the proper time?
