One of my staples, at any consultation, is the famous Salt water Cure. You can read about it here or watch the video on you tube.
What is it for?
Each year a certain direction is said to be “afflicted” and is known to bring negative energy known in Feng Shui terms as “Shar Qi”. In order to avoid the ill effects of this negative energy, a salt water cure is known to be useful to suppress this negativity. Technically, this phenomenon is called the visiting annual star #5.
The size of the salt water cure depends on the size of the area to be treated.
How do I get one?
The traditional saltwater cure can be easily made, very economically at home. You take an appropriate sized container filled with kitchen salt to the brim. You then insert 6 pieces of metal. These pieces range from simple copper or brass coins to 1 kg chunks of metal, depending upon the area to be treated. Add a 7th coin, that is silver coloured for good luck! (Totally 6 + 1 = 7) Fill water to the brim. You may notice that in the process, the salt somewhat settles down, so add water and more salt as may be required to get 2 – 4 inches of water above the salt.
What happens next?
Within the first week, you will notice some activity, even if you don’t actually touch or move the salt water cure. You may notice splattering around the container, hardening of the salt to a rock-like state or simply, either the salt or the water disappearing. In all cases, do what it takes to get it back to its original state, either replenish the salt or the water!
Where do I keep it?
This year, you keep it in the North East of your property. The Chinese year starts on February the 4th each year and ends on the 3rd of February the following year, which is when you will need to follow the #5 star to its next abode.
