Feng Shui Bathroom (How A Bathroom Flushes Prosperity & What You Can Do About It)

Alright, so we’re in the article that’ll reveal to you – general and direction-wise – feng shui bathroom and toilet guidelines, rules, regulations, concepts and remedies. But before we begin, I must tell you an undeniable fact or a concept of feng shui towards a bathroom or toilet, here it is:

“Bathrooms and toilets have got a really bad reputation as far as feng shui is concerned”.

and here’s why: As per feng shui, bathrooms and toilets (I’ll call them bathrooms from hereon for sake of simplicity) have the tendency to drain or flush away the positive “Qi” energy of your home.

Hence, if “Qi” enters the bathroom (read as bathroom or toilet) then rest assured that it’s flushed right away out of your house and that’s what we certainly don’t want to happen.

Note: Here, I assume that you’re completely aware of concepts of feng shui and “Qi” energy; if – by any chance – you aren’t then please read the article @ Feng Shui and the concept of “Qi”.

Feng Shui Bathrooms

Ok, coming back to the topic of bathrooms; since each and every part or corner of a house is related to an aspect of life, hence a bathroom in one particular corner or part would affect that specific area of life; this is what I’ve explained further – with examples – in the next section of the article, so, just read on.

Bathroom Feng Shui – Why You MUST Do It

As said earlier that each and every part or direction of a home is related to a specific aspect of life and a bathroom in that part will drain the luck or benefits of that aspect of life.

Here are some examples:

A bathroom in South-East: – Since South-East part of a house is related to wealth, a bathroom in this part will drain away all the money from the house; joblessness, sinking income, increasing debt and even bankruptcy are some effects of South-East bathroom.

In North-West: – The North-West part of the house deals with helpful people and luck from heaven, a toilet in this part will drain away all those from you. No help from anyone, backstabbing, office politics, discredit etc. are some effects of North-West bathroom.

and the list can go on and on for other directions too.

Now, there’s an image in the article @ Colors and Directions that’ll reveal to you the relation between directions and the aspect of life ruled by each direction. You can have a look at that image and you’ll be able to understand the good aspect – of your life – which a bathroom in that particular direction will drain away.

But hey, a bathroom or toilet have to be somewhere in the house. Isn’t it? The answer to that it yes, they can be in the house but remember wherever they are they’ll – at least try to – reduce the benefits of that direction(s).

Hence, it’s vital to have feng shui a bathroom in the home; this’ll minimize – or possibly eliminate – the draining or flushing of “good” from life; so, the next question popping in your mind would be how to have a feng shui bathroom? That’s exactly what I’ve detailed – in do’s and don’ts format (I know you love it) – you in the next section of this article, so just read on.

Bathroom Feng Shui – How to Do It

Here in this section you’ll find feng shui bathroom tips – as promised, in do’s and don’ts format – all you now need to do is to just go through these tips and apply them to the bathroom and toilets of your home so that they aren’t able to drain luck, money, love or anything positive from your home.

Here, I’ll suggest you, that before you start reading feng shui bathroom tips, you must read the article @ Feng Shui Colors; that’s because once you read – and really understand – the essence of that article, you’ll be able to understand the reasons for – most of – the remedies that are mentioned below.

However, if you don’t read that article, that’s completely ok, the remedies will still work; but in that case you’ll just be applying the remedies without knowing the exact science or reason behind the remedies. Anyways, it’s all up to you.
