A client recently asked me where she should hang the living room clock for good Feng Shui.
In Feng Shui, clocks can be associated with negative and positive qualities depending on how they are used and where they are placed. Clocks may remind us of how precious time is and how quickly it passes. Clocks have even been associated with death In Chinese culture. It is considered extremely disrespectful for younger people to gift an older person with a clock as it is associated with "not having much time left".
Many clocks are beautiful pieces of art and workmanship and when placed in a well-balanced area in your home will enhance any decor.
Extra-large and huge wall clocks are very trendy now in home decor. I have advised my clients to remove these clocks as they can create subconscious energy as feeling rushed and flustered. It is better to choose a wall clock that is in proper proportion with your room or space.
In Feng Shui, clocks are associated with the Metal element. Metal is associated with piercing energy, focus and clarity. When the clock is overpowering in a space you may feel that "piercing pressure" of never having enough time.
Clocks that do not work properly or have stopped may cause you to feel blocked or unable to complete projects and deadlines. If clocks are not functioning it creates stagnant Chi and you will feel unable to move forward. Keep your clocks running well for good Feng Shui.
Clocks are not recommended in the dining room as you may feel rushed to eat and may actually cause nausea and headaches.
Pendulum clocks such as grandfather clocks with musical chimes are good Feng Shui and may be hung in the living room, family room or hallways. I highly recommend pendulum clocks as a Feng Shui remedy to subdue negative Flying Stars that need to be addressed on an annual basis.
Are you feeling as if you are running out of time? Do you feel blocked? Tick-tock make sure you have a working clock!
Until next time,
