Feng Shui Travel Tips

An the end of the Summer my family was preparing for short trip to Florida and I started look for summer travel tips and suggestions. I have to say, that we never have been in Florida during the summer, usually we travel to Florida in the winter time. So, I’m searching for recommendations, they all pretty much say the same things about getting to the airport early, packing lightly or take a lot of sunscreen with you, but something caught my eye, Cathay Pacific-10 Tips for Feng Shui Travel”

The article had tips to help travelers enjoy a restful, harmonious and healthy travel and return home feeling balanced and refreshed. As Feng Shui practitioner, I’m certainly interested in such information.  Feng Shui widely considered being the simple art of furniture placement; actually it is much more complex and revolves around the integration of heaven and earth. The movement of Chi energy- breath of life and spirit- generated by humans and surrounding objects through space is beneficial. No matter how tempting it is to visit new places, travel can be taxing on the mind and body.

Here are simple and practical tips as good for a business trip as they are for a family taking off of summer vacation:

  • Bring “your home” with you to lodge your energy instantly in new surroundings; Bring-your home-with you
    it could be a talisman or small animal figure that feels connected to your personal families and your home.




  • Pack something to utilize in your alone time that you normally would not do, but wish to do; it could be a periodical magazine, i-pad, user guide from camera, even poster paint kit or watercolor kit.


  • When you walk in your hotel room and you don’t like the way it smells, Tea-lights
    simply turn around and ask for different room or you can light small tea-lights that have a smell and it will create great warmth, comfort and home environment, as well as clearing the space.
