Travelling can be fun and can be turned into a fulfiling experience by following some simple feng shui travel tips.

Travel Tips
Hotel room will have accumulated the chi energy from all those who have been there before us. Remove this energy and create a pleasant environment for yourself.

Opening window to let in fresh air is an obvious starting point. It may be difficult, because of the noise involved, to raise the sound vibration in the room by clapping, ringing bells and making other noise to perk up the energies, but we can silently improve the air quality by using incense or aromatic oil and spraying water around the room to increase the positive ions.

It will benefit us if our head faces one of our auspicious directions as we sleep. The position of the bed is important and we should attempt to ensure that we are supported by a wall above the head and that we do not face the bathroom since negative energy will emanate from it. If the bed does face the bathroom, make sure that the door is closed all the time.

A mirror facing the bed is not considered to be good, and we will have a disturbed sleep if we do not cover it.

Many hotel beds are surrounded by electrical cables for bedside lamp, telephone and television. Unplug these appliances and move the bed away from them if possible.

Keep a piece of jade in your pocket or wear a piece of jade jewellery to protect while you are out.

Keep your vehicle clean from inside (for better Chi flow) and outside and free from clutter.

Maintain your vehicle well. Give it for regular servicing as squeaks and rattling sound can cause stress.

Use your car ashtray for keeping some potpourri, as lemon and rosemary aromatic oils helps to keep driver calm and attentive.

Keeping two cushions in the car keeps the passengers calm and relax, that is why people hold a cushion when they are feeling restless.

Playing soft and soothing music helps in keeping the driver cool, contributing to safe driving.

Depending on your date of birth, some colours will be favourable for you than others. (Contact your feng shui consultant.)

Tie a blue ribbon to the rear view mirror to keep you calm and focused.
