Question: Where Can I Buy Feng Shui Products For My Home?
Good feng shui products are easy to come by. However, quite often products presented as feng shui products are of questionable quality and design. So, how do you define a good feng shui product and more importantly, where can you buy good products?
First, you have to be clear with what you need. What type of feng shui products are you looking for? What do you hope to achieve by displaying specific feng shui products?
Second, will traditional feng shui products work with your home decor scheme? Buying feng shui products that do not appeal to you aesthetically is not smart feng shui.
Once you define your need for specific feng shui products, you will realize that good feng shui products are really easy to find.
Let’s say you have the following products on your feng shui products list:
1. Fountain as a Feng Shui Money Cure
First decide on the area where you want to place the fountain, as well as the ideal size, shape and materials. What type of fountain will go best with your home decor? You can purchase good quality fountains at garden stores, new age bookstores, gift shops and, of course, on-line.
2. Feng Shui Lucky Bamboo as a Health Cure
If you do not like the typical lucky bamboo that can be purchased at many Asian stores, you can easily create your own feng shui lucky bamboo. Numerous flower shops carry bamboo stalks of different heights, you can choose the best pot/container, as well as some rocks to go with your very own feng shui lucky bamboo.
3. Buddha Image for Harmony and Spiritual Growth
First, decide if you would like a Buddha sculpture/figurine or a Buddha image. Also decide where you would like to display it and what is the size, as well as the price range that you can go for. There is a variety of Buddha deities in traditional feng shui – from laughing Buddha to medicine Buddha. You can purchase Buddha figurines at many home decor stores, new age and gift shops or on-line.
4. Crystals for Protection, Clarity, Love, etc.
There is a variety of crystals that can be used for feng shui purposes. Crystals most commonly associated with feng shui are the faceted lead crystals (Swarovski-type crystals). These can be purchased at bookstores and gift shops, as well as on-line. More powerful feng shui rock crystals can be purchased either on-line or at specialty stores. New age bookstores will often carry natural crystals, be sure to go for non-treated ones.
5. Traditional Chinese Feng Shui Cures
If you are looking for specific traditional feng shui cures, such as a pair of Chi Lins, for example, or Chinese coins with a mystic knot pattern, your best bet – unless you live close to Chinatown! – will be a reputable on-line feng shui retailer, such as FengShuiBestBuy.com, LuckyCat.com, FSMegamall.com, or search for these items on amazon.com.
A good feng shui home is a home that looks good and feels good. Be sure any feng shui products you bring into your home contribute to its good energy and compliment the look and feel of your home.
