The Elegant Bathroom…Still A Feng Shui Taboo?
Such elegance…a feng shui taboo?
In feng shui, toilets and bathrooms have long been thought to be afflicted areas of the home…where we flush down our waste…and there are many taboos associated with them. However in newer homes and modern condos the bathroom has taken on a new dimension… with beautiful granite vanities and sumptuous tubs for soaking and relaxing. There are hundred of showerheads to choose from…not to mention all the gorgeous hardware available. Many women spend hours in their bathrooms getting ready for work or for an evening out!
So how do we reconcile this dilemma? It’s actually quite simple…and really common sense. Here’s what to do:
- Make sure your bed doesn’t share a wall with the toilet. It’s alright if your bedroom is right next to the bathroom (ensuite), but do make sure that it is not your head and bed that share the toilet wall…instead share with the sink or the mirror etc. Even better…try your bed in a different location in your room and have your dresser or some other piece of furniture against the bathroom wall.
- Your bathroom can be big and spa-like but keep the toilet separate from your main bath area. It is better if you keep the toilet in another small room within the bathroom…and keep the door closed at all times when not in use – this will allow you to decorate as much as you like without being afraid of activating toilet feng shui.
- Avoid bathroom fixtures: When you choose golden or gilded taps and fittings it’s not only a bit ostentatious…it’s really bad feng shui. Taps wash things away…and if yours are gold you are symbolically draining or flushing away all of your money luck. Choose stainless steel or ceramic materials…but not gold.
- No toilets above the main door – just think about it. Imagine having a toilet above the most important sector of all – your main door. Seriously…always check this before you make any offers on a new home or move into a rental unit. If you already live in such a home…it’s strongly recommended to spend the money to make the necessary changes – either move your bathroom or the main door. This configuration not only brings bad luck but it’s dangerous too.
- Choose the right colours for your bathroom. Don’t make the bathroom colours too yin…it’s okay if your bedroom colours are more subdued and a little more yin than yang…but bathrooms should be a little more yang. Bright colours like whites, creams and pastels work a lot better than blacks, maroons or navy. Tip the balance slightly in favor of yang and your bathroom will be fine.
- Carpeting the bathroom is a nice touch and many people like this…although ceramic tiles are actually better. If you do have carpeting then make sure you maintain it and don’t let it get too wet or overly damp. This will create a nasty mildew-like smell and emit unhealthy chi. Use small foot carpets on top of your main carpet to avoid this.
Bathrooms will always be considered taboo to some extent no matter how fancy they are. The most important thing to remember is to keep them away from the NW and SW areas of your home as these represent the areas of the patriarch and matriarch respectively and if located in these locations all of the luck will be flushed away. And this means all your luck too since it affects the good fortune of the rest of the family.
Don’t stress too much – but do keep these simple rules in mind and follow the above guidelines…then enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub.
All the best
Channeling Luck Into Your Home With Cosmic Energy
Lucky people live in lucky homes and homes have three dimensions to their energy profile. Homes are defined by the space and time changes of energy that affect them. Your home is also affected by the spirit essence that connects it to the larger energy fields that make up the cosmic universe. Everyone is part of this universe. The three dimensions manifest good or bad feng shui through the energies that flow between the material and cosmic worlds. This flow creates the mix of energy that manifests both good abundance and bad misfortune luck.
Usually most people are unaware of this constant flow and mix of energy between our material and cosmic worlds and thus unable to influence the quality of the chi flowing back and forth. Those who know about the flow of cosmic energies however can increase the flow of abundance from the cosmic universe and reduce afflictions that bring bad luck!
The cosmic universe is a complex accumulation of energy. Energy vortexes exist that can be negative or positive. The Chinese refer to the cosmic universe as the source and they call it the tai chi, which comprises primordial yin and yang energy. These are two extremes of energy and the tai chi is the basis of all landscape and compass practices of feng shui- encompassing time and space.
But there is more to the tai chi than simply its physical manifestations of time and space. The tai chi that is the cosmic universe has a life of its own. It is pulsating with a spirit that is as vast as infinity, a spirit that responds to rhythms, sounds, vibrations, colours, the yellow brightness of the sun and the white brightness of the moon.
When space and time feng shui are practiced alongside the spiritual dimension, manifested as the Tai Chi, the effect on the material plane is incredibly enhanced. The home is no longer just “lucky” or “harmonious”…the home’s space becomes more than ordinary space. It gets transformed into sacred space so that all the positive manifestations of good feng shui – health, wealth, harmony, success, a respected name, an excellent reputation, honourable recognitions, filial children, good friendships and uplifting relationships – all the different aspects of the human aspiration get touched by a spiritual potency that is very powerful.
All aspirations manifest into reality. The spiritual dimension gets increasingly activated so that over time, both you and your house will glow with a powerful radiance. A new aura of invisible but brightening energy gets created. The good news is that spirituality exists in the human mind. YOU are the one to activate the spirituality within you to open the channels into the cosmic universe. You do this by placing focused awareness on your inner spirituality. This creates an opening of the channel that lets the cosmic energy flow through you and into your home.”
Grand Master Lillian Too is undoubtedly the world’s most prolific and popular writer and advocate on living with good feng shui! She has written over 100 books that have been translated into 31 different languages, and over 10 million copies of her books have been sold worldwide.
After graduating with an MBA from Harvard Business School, Lillian went on to pursue a highly successful business career in banking and finance in the 1980’s in Hong Kong. Her business acumen, drive and abundant energy soon led her from the finance world to the world of luxury department stores and boutiques where, through a leveraged buy out, she became Chairman and shareholder of The Dragon Seed Group.
All the while she was guided and taught by her feng shui masters in Hong Kong and China – and she attributes much of her monumental and quick rise to success in Hong Kong directly to them.
Lillian soon decided to retire from active corporate life and return to Malaysia to raise her beautiful daughter, Jennifer, and spend more time with her family. It was at this time she began to devote her energy to writing and furthering her study of feng shui.
She published her first book in Malaysia in 1995 that quickly became a best seller and the rest is history. Today she is Chairman of Wofs.Com, a feng shui franchise and merchandising company run by her daughter, Jennifer Too.
She trains feng shui students and future consultants at her Certified Consulting Institute in Malaysia and is much loved by her readers, associates and students for the way she teaches practical feng shui in a user-friendly way, using ordinary situations and circumstances that interest people and affect their everyday lives.
In November 2009, at the International Feng Shui Convention in Singapore, the well-deserved title of GRAND MASTER OF FENG SHUI was conferred upon Lillian Too. Immediately following this accolade, in early January 2010, she received the prestigious Brand Laureate Personality of The Year Award presented by the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia! There seems to be no stopping her popularity and these days!
Lillian believes everyone should know her secrets and learn how to adapt feng shui to modern life… and she warmly welcomes you into her Mandala.

What is it about pets that make us feel so happy? Pets are really good life energy to have around you…and they enhance the feng shui of your living space…especially if you work and you home is left empty during the day. They bring plenty of yang energy to counteract the yin energy of the quiet silence…and their good energy makes us feel upbeat and happy…especially when they greet us as we return home like a long lost friend. It is such good karma to be kind to your pets and have compassion for them having been born into the animal realm!
When you believe that you are truly part of the cosmos and sense the complete freedom that comes with accepting a new consciousness, everything happens perfectly for you.
