Pets are Feng Shui, according to Feng Shui expert, Yvonne Phillips — author of Feng Shui ABC.
“Pets emit a strong, positive form of energy in your home because they are constantly in motion. There is no better Feng Shui for your home,” said Yvonne, “than having an animal run around spreading positive chi.”
Pet Feng Shui for Pet Health & Pet Energy
Yvonne noted that animals are drawn to the best energy in a room or home. Generate positive energy in your home, and you will enhance your pet’s overall health and happiness.
“Your animal will lie down on the area that has the best energy in the home.
“They will always lie down on a rug, instead of the hard floor unless they are a hugh animal and have lots of fur to keep them warm.”
Pet Feng Shui with Fresh Food, Fresh Water and a Clean Bed
Yvonne stressed that pets like fresh food and water the same as you do! They also like a favorite blanket and favorite toy, so spoil them with what they love.
Pet Feng Shui by giving your pet a clean bed!
“We have included them in our homes, so we should make the appropriate choices of where they sleep or eat in order to live with us successfully. You like a clean home, they like a clean home as well.”
Pet Feng Shui with a Clean Home
Yvonne raised another important pet Feng Shui issue: cleanliness. Keep pet plates clean at all times. Be sure not to leave soap residue in your pet’s dish or water bowl. Soap residue can be very harmful for animals. Pets, especially cats, are drawn to well lit areas (like the window sill). Make certain those areas are clean and accessible — that you don’t have anything in the way that can be knocked over.
Pet Feng Shui with Color
Cats can see several colors. My cat is partial to red blankets.
Yvonne indicated that her cat is drawn to both red and green.
She suggested that pet Feng Shui plates should be pretty and colorful. Yellow bowls and plates can create an especially happy pet eating area.
Negative to plastic! I’ve tossed out all those tiny plastic bowls sold in pet stores.
My cat eats from a colorful glass plate and drinks from a glass bowl. He’s much happier — purring throughout the entire meal.
Yvonne recommends that you can also use red to energize and feng shui a pet’s eating area.
The eating area should also be a protected space — a corner out of the path of humans. Cats (more so than dogs) like privacy while they eat.
Pet Feng Shui with Natural Salt Lamps and Natural Salt Candleholders
It’s difficult to determine if wall colors affect cats and dogs, but pets can definitely sense the energy flow within a room.
I use Natural Salt Therapy for Pet Feng Shui in every room of my house.
Natural salt lamps and natural salt candleholders release negative ions in abundance – known for enhancing your well-being, energizing the room and gently purifying the air.
Natural salt lamps and candleholders cleanse and purify home air from harmful bacteria.
They also combat dangerous indoor electro “smog” (computers, televisions, etc.) — thus further safeguarding your pet.
And here’s another natural salt benefit. Salt lamps and salt candleholders radiate a stunning, soft pink/red glow.
Pets are attracted to natural light and especially to the rich warmth of natural salt lamps and salt candleholders.
Yvonne recommends natural salt lamps for her clients and also uses them in her own home.
A Feng Shui basket of Salt Crystals will also elevate and harmonize room energy for your pet.
