I love this Feng Shui tip of the day from Ellen Whitehurst. Coming from and living in an environment that is mainly filled with women I still found myself calling “who left the lid up”! Something just felt wrong about not closing it.
“On ‘World Toilet Day’ I thought we might take a look at how to make negative bathroom energies go right down the drain. But let’s first see why Feng Shui suggests that the bathroom is considered such a negative space. According to this modality, the bathroom is the home’s place for cleansing and elimination and is believed to impact the family’s wealth and health as it carries connotations of uncleanliness and waste removal. Therefore, to keep this room from depleting both your bank account and life force, you might want to try some of the following solutions. Keep the bathroom door closed at all times. This keeps healthy energy from entering that room that can then get flushed away. Speaking of which, keep the toilet seat closed at all times. You should also keep a stopper in the shower and sink drains, as drains sap energy. Lastly, you can hang a full length mirror on the outside of the bathroom door so it will reflect the Chi of the house away from bathroom while also making the room ‘vanish’ from everyone’s attention. Enact these tips and you can save money, energy and time spent at the doctor’s office.”
