My bathroom is in my skills and knowledge area, what can I do?

by David

I have been applying the feng shui tips on your website to my home to great satisfaction. Last night I cleaned my front door, and in one day two items that I've been trying to sell for a long time were sold. Thank you.

Now, my bathroom is in my Skills & Knowledge area, and I know that running water is a don't in this area, among other things that exist in my bathroom. Do you have any tips for how I can maximize this area?

Thank you.

Hello David,

I am delighted to hear that you are having good fortune with feng shui, I love success stories!

Here is my advice for your bathroom in the Skills & Knowledge area:

  • Keep it clean and clutter free (of course!)

  • Select colors that work well for bathrooms and Skills/Knowledge like blues and greens.

  • Bring in the earth element to balance out excess water (like rocks, gems, earthenware, ceramics, and pottery). The earth element is also very beneficial for Skills/Knowledge.

  • Boxes and containers are a wonderful addition not only because they enhance the earth element, but because they will help keep your bathroom clutter-free.

  • Also, follow good bathroom feng shui by keeping it well-lit and well-ventilated and remember to keep the toilet lid down.

  • The most important thing for your bathroom is to focus on creating a space that feels vital and healthy. However, since it is in the Skills/Knowledge you want to avoid overly active colors, it should feel nurturing and soothing. Go for a subdued zen-like feel.

Be well,

"In our deepest moments of struggle, frustration, fear, and confusion, we are being called upon to reach in and touch our hearts. Then, we will know what to do, what to say, how to be. What is right is always in our deepest heart of hearts. It is from the deepest part of our hearts that we are capable of reaching out and touching another human being. It is, after all, one heart touching another heart."
