Transcript:How To Use Clocks in Feng Shui
Hi, I am Rodika Tchi for about.com Home and Garden. Many people think that clocks are bad feng shui and should not be displayed in the home. This is not right. Knowing the time and adjusting the pace accordingly is part of our everyday routine. However, there are better, and then there are worse places to display a clock in your home.
Feng Shui and Bedroom Clocks
For example, I absolutely love this clock, but I will never display it in my bedroom! Bedrooms are places for relaxation and sexual healing, places where you should listen to a different clock – to your own body clock. The only clock that is allowed in the bedroom, feng shui-wise, is a small alarm clock that can be easily tucked away.
Good Rooms for Clocks
Because clocks represent the passing of time, it is best to place them in the areas with a lot of activity, such as
- the living room
- the family room
- the kitchen or
- the home office.
Having a big clock in your children's room is actually good feng shui, because it helps them understand the notion and the passing of time.
Displaying Clock Collections
If you have a collection of clocks you would like to display, do not do that in the bedroom. You can display your clock collection in the living room, or maybe you can create a gallery effect in your hallway
Clocks and Bad Feng Shui
Do not display clocks so that you can easily see them as you enter the house. In feng shui, shapes and materials bring specific energies, and by working with them, you can either strengthen, or weaken an area of your house. As a general rule, do not display metal clocks in the East area of your home.
Remove Broken Clocks
Last but not least, do not keep broken clocks in your home. Either fix them, or let them go. In fact, do not keep anything broken in your home!
