“Underneath all is land”.
That is the first thing real estate agents learn in real estate class; the value of land.
In feng shui, and space clearing we always consider what is underneath the land?

Without land, there is no development. We simply cannot construct any building without land to hold our magnificent buildings, including mobile homes.
You may ask: “What does it have to do with feng shui and space clearing?” Well, the land lot may be auspicious, or maybe not, that’s why we need Feng Shui. Space clearing pertains to whom and what has occupied the land before you.
“Well, I bought my house brand new, so none of space clearing is needed!” Yes, your home is brand new, but what about your land? It was there before any of us were born, and it will remain there when we all disappear from the face of the earth. So, buying a new home does not exempt anyone from the land that embraces you and your family if it is auspicious or not.
Most countries believe in blessing the land prior to moving in by offering mother earth flowers, candles, incense, and water (feng shui 5 elements) to have mother earth support when we move onto her land.
We’ve all seen supernatural movies such as “The Others” staring Nicole Kidman, or “The Sixth Sense”, starring Bruce Willis, or the true story like “The Amityville Horror.”
In that real life story, Father Mancuso learned in demonology: the odor of human excrement was always associated with the appearance of the Devil! And an old, abandoned, covered-up well; spirits may be coming from the well. You can cap it off, but if you do find a well under your house, there is a direct passage to it. Even if it’s a tiny crack, that’s all it takes. With that, “it” can climb out when it wants to.
Now that I have your attention, here is a suggestion:
Prior to buying a home, look for the right feng shui lot, surf my web site www.FengShuiSanDiego.Com for additional information of do’s and don’ts or email me Gwen@GwenCoronado.com
And prior to moving in your dream home, have a priest or a monk, or a rabbi (according to your religious background) bless your home. You and your family should go around and get acquainted with your new home, talk to the home. I know, I know, it sounds like you are insane to talk to your house, but trust me; the house has soul too, just like your trees, your plants, and your flowers.
Ever notice that when a person talks to a plant, the plant blooms so beautifully whereas the plants only being watered and fertilized look so lonely? Here is a photo of Prince Charles, who has been known to talk to his plants, and used his thousands of acres of land for organic herbs, vegetables and fruits.
That’s the reason I love feng shui. It teaches one to be mindful (this is a term I borrowed from Thay Thich Nhat Hanh).
Be mindful about what surrounds us, embrace everything that Mother Nature gives us, and with the right feng shui, blessings, and love, we all can live in harmony and world peace will come automatically.
February 19, 2015 is a Lunar New Year, the year of the Sheep.
It is best to start to uncluttered your home, and ALWAYS do space clearing PRIOR to the New Year.
May you have a healthy, wealthy, and a year filled with happiness in 2015.
