A new decade – new challenges. A change of decade is no small event. Use this feng shui checklist to fine-tune your feng shui of your home and workplace. If you’re already doing these feng shui interventions, treat it as a reminder and perhaps pass it on to your family and friends. New year, new start, so get clear about what you want to keep and what you want to change (check the tip number 5 below) and put some practical, feng shui means in place for making your goals and dreams happen in 2020.
Career success, financial freedom, improved health and a passionate relationship as well as thriving life. These results don’t just happen. Invest in yourself by adding feng shui into your life to get the knowledge, values and mindset to realise and actualise your dreams and goals, present and future.
1) Keep the air clean in your home and workplace.
Feng shui translates as wind-water. If you’re living in a town or city and near a busy road you’re most likely exposed to air pollution. Install an air purifier and a negative ion generator. Don’t use candles or chemicals. Get more air purifying plants such as peace lilies, spider plants and ferns. Open windows – indoor air is much worse in most homes compared to the outdoor one. Learn to breathe coherently. There are apps and VR app BreatheVR uses virtual reality to train you breathing in optimum ways or learn coherent breathing. Become a clean air activist – put pressure on local MPs and join campaigns. Plant trees. Be optimistic, it can only get better.
2) Filter your water.
Feng shui = wind-water. Earth and our bodies are mostly water. Staying hydrated to keep your digestive and urinary systems healthy is an essential lifestyle. Get a water filter – ideally, you should have a whole house water filter (you absorb more chlorine from showering than from drinking water because of water droplets). http://itdoesthejob.com/water/filtration/ Mention my name (Jan Cisek) and you’ll get 15% off the price.
3) Reduce EMFs exposure, electro-smog stress
The latest research suggests that the most dangerous pollution affecting us is the invisible sea of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) or electromagnetic radiation. You are exposed to EMFs all day long, not only in public but inside your home, too. Most of the radiation comes from cellphones, cell towers, computers, smart meters and Wi-Fi, to name just a few. There are many ways to remedy electro-smog such as:
• Connect your computer to the internet via a wired connection and be sure to put it in aeroplane mode.
• If you must use wi-fi, switch it off once you are done, especially at night when you are sleeping.
• Switch off the electricity to your bedroom at night. Or install a demand switch for your bedroom – which will cut off unnecessary electricity/electro-smog during sleep – if possible.
• Get a large wall-mounted headboard with extra protection behind to shield some electrosmog from your neighbours.
• Use grounding/ earthing whenever you can. Research suggests that grounding reduces inflammation (read tip 11, below about vagus nerve and the role of inflammation in most diseases) and helps with protecting from electro-smog.

• When your body is under stress and electrosmog is a stressor, magnesium is depleted from your body (magnesium helps the body to relax) so you need to replace it. My favourite tip is the magnesium spray that I use when I feel I need, usually, just before going to sleep. Bananas are packed with magnesium, which relaxes muscles and boosts melatonin.
“How much more radiation penetrates your body today, compared to 10 years ago?” The answer: “Quintillion times more – that is 1 000 000 000 000 000 000 times more!” (18 zeros)
