Earlier this week, we talked about Feng Shui beliefs about plumbing. How in Feng Shui, if the lid is up on the toilet, it can energetically lead to money “going down the drain”…

And, for the gentlemen in the readership, this is not a “woman-wants-the-seat-down” thing. The belief is that water draining out of the house energetically leads to unexpected expenses.


  • car repairs;
  • home repairs;
  • tax bills:

You get the idea.

So, the concept is that, by keeping the lid down when the toilet is not in use, you are blocking that negative energy flow, and cutting down on or eliminating such freak expenditures.

This is called a Feng Shui “cure” – a technique or trick to block negative energy. And it is a good thing.

But, by the by, your toilet is not the only place that water drains out of, right?

No worries – we got some other cures for you….

For drains in sinks (kitchen, bathroom, or, for the ritzy, home bar), one way of blocking the money from going down the drain is to stop the sinks when not draining water. Close the little thing-a-ma-jig…

Or, if that’s too hard to remember (especially when you get up early or crash out very late), you can tie a red ribbon around the drain pipe under the sink for long range protection that doesn’t require remembering to do something on a regular basis.

It’s also a good idea to be sure to turn faucets completely off, and repair any dripping faucets. That not only prevents the energetic drain of cash, but also that drain on the physical plane (do you know how fast your water bill goes up with that tiny little drip?)

So control the energy. Do the cures.

And don’t let your money go down the drain….

Want to have more money in your life?

Then shut the lid on the toilet when it’s not in use…..

In Feng Shui, the way you set up things in your environment affects the flow of chi or energy. This can have an effect on other things happening in the world around you. “Move your sofa – change your life” is one somewhat irreverent way I’ve heard this referred to.

 One aspect of this is the belief that places where water “goes down the drain” can cause money to  “go down the drain” as well.

That’s right. You heard me….

So to stay in better financial shape, along with stopping up little holes in our budget, we also need to put the lid down on the toilet, to keep the chi (and therefore the money) from flushing out of our lives.

Simple. And helpful.

In my last post, I discussed the ethics of using magick and metaphysics in regards to sex, romance and love.

Want the readers’ digest version?

  • It’s o.k. to use magick, metaphysics, psychic ability or prayer to send out a message to the Universe that you’re available, attract a good partner, or help yourself find that partner.
  • It’s not o.k. to use magick, metaphysics, psychic ability or prayer to create love where there is none, coerce  someone into a relationship, or control their life or choices…

The key point is Free Will. Any time your energywork overrides the Free Will of another, you’re wandering past the grey areas into bad energy; and are likely to be creating a karma explosion (For more info, please see post for Feb.9, 2010 or the Free Will articles in May of 2009 ).

So, you better be good, you better watch out…

Keep the magick in love to the good vibrations.

That being said, it’s Valentine’s Day.

If you’ve got a sweety, have you gotten them a gift yet?


Have no fear- Foresight’s here, with a list of possible gifts for your love with a magickal, metaphysical or alternative health twist.

(Please note that, while these gifts all tap into the non-ordinary energy of the Universe, none of them are coercive, will violate Free Will or take away your partner’s ability to choose. Rather, these all support qualities that are qualities of strong, solid, happy relationships.)

1 ) Rose Quartz necklace or pendant-Rose quartz heals negative emotions and trauma, and supports love, both of others and of yourself. It’s a happy stone, and placing it over the heart chakra increases its loving energy.

2 ) Bath salts- Is your honey stressed ( in the relationship, or in general)? Salt has the ability to absorb and neutralize negative energy, and a warm bath can relax the tight muscles that go with stress.

3 ) Environmental recording- Not enough money or time to get away? Recordings of the waves at the beach, the wind in the trees or a crackling fire can create a virtual vacation that supports actual health and relaxation.

4 ) Things in pairs- In Feng Shui, having two items  (statues, candles, a painting of two people/animals/items)  supports couple energy, especially if it’s in the relationship corner of her bedroom (far right corner when at door). So get her two baskets, or if she has a teddy bear, get him a little friend.

5 ) Make dinner- there’s a long history of foods that support love or lust, so why not cook tonight? Spices and condiments in this area include cardamom, dill, honey, marjoram, paprika, thyme and fresh pesto. Possible foods include dates, red grapes, rhubarb, tomatoes, waffles with berries, yams and oranges.

6 ) Massage- Massage not only relaxes tight muscles and joints, but also helps the body to let go of toxins left from illness or stress. It also feels great. You can buy a certificate for a professional massage, do the massage yourself.

7 ) Guided visualization or meditation CD- These trigger the mind-body connection to support health and relaxation, release limitations and improve personal skills. Carefully select one to go with a goal you know your  love is working on,or offer a gift certificate to pick his own.

8 ) Chocolate- Tastes great. Boosts endorphins like love does. Sacred to the Aztecs. “Nuff said.

9 ) Diamond ring- on beyond the mainstream connotations, diamond supports loyalty and fidelity in a relationship. It reconciles quarrels, builds self-confidence and resolves sexual issues.

Good ideas, no?

Happy shopping, happy Valentine’s Day and good wishes to you.
