NO-NONSENSE FENG SHUI - Feng Shui Master Aldric V. dalumpines - The Freeman

Often the favorite seat in the house, the water closet can flush your health and wealth away if not carefully done according to Feng Shui principles! Both at home and office.

It's advisable never to position it in your lucky Feng Shui directions for wealth and good health, for obvious reasons.  It takes genius to accept the obvious in toilet seat placements!

This applies to all toilet seats in a house with the rightful owners. For office, it is limited to the toilet you use as an executive comfort room, maybe!

Never have your toilet seats in your lucky Feng Shui color, again for obvious reasons!

Never have family pictures or your selfie, as well, as prosperity symbols in the toilet – especially above the toilet seat on the wall.

All symbols of money and happiness should not be placed in the toilet.

No fire symbol should be around or on top of flush basin of toilet seats.

Avoid smoking atop toilet seat.

No-candles rule also apply.

But if you do want to get rid of your lousy partner now, do place his or her picture right above your favorite seat in the house or office!

Now you know the Feng Shui powers of the ‘throne’ in the toilet! If only to get rid of all the "sh*t" in your life for wellbeing!

The Elderly at Home: Common Concerns


If you are of advanced age and staying in your home is important to you, you may have concerns about safety, getting around, or other activities of daily life. Here are suggestions to help you think about some of these worries:

Getting around – at home and in town. Are you having trouble walking? Perhaps a walker would help. If you need more, think about getting a motorized chair or scooter. Do you need someone to go with you to the doctor or shopping? See if there’s one in your home or among the neighbors. If you are not driving a car, see if you can find free or low-cost public transportation and taxis in your area. Maybe a relative, friend, or neighbor would take you along when they go on errands or do yours for you.

Activities and friends. Are you bored staying at home? Your local senior citizens center may have a variety of activities. You might see friends there and meet new people too. Is it hard for you to leave your home? Maybe you would enjoy visits from someone. Ask relatives or volunteers to stop by or call once a week. They can just keep you company, or you can talk about any problems you are having.

Safety. Are you worried about crime in your neighborhood, physical abuse, or losing money as a result of a scam? Talk to the staff at your local senior citizens center. If you live alone, are you afraid of becoming sick with no one around to help? You might want to get an emergency alert system, with which you just push a special button that you wear and emergency medical personnel are called (there is typically a monthly fee for this service, if available).

Housing. Would a few changes make your home easier and safer to live in? Think about things like a ramp at the front door, grab bars in the tub or shower, nonskid floors, more comfortable handles on doors or faucets, and better insulation. It might sound expensive, but you might be able to get help paying for these changes.

Help during the day. Do you need care but live with someone who can't stay with you during the day? (For example, maybe they’re working.) Check if your local senior citizens center has a day care program for gathering old people who need help caring for themselves. The center may pick you up and bring you home after.

In finding a companion, here are some resources to start with:

People you know. Family, friends, and neighbors are the biggest source of help for many old people. Talk with those close to you about the best way to get what you need. If you are physically able, think about trading services with an equally friend or neighbor. One could do the grocery shopping, and the other could cook dinner, for example.

Community and local government resources. There must be other services in your community intended for everybody that might benefit senior citizens as well. Social workers may have suggestions. If you belong to a religious group, talk with the clergy, or check with its local office about any senior services they offer.

Geriatric care managers. These specially trained professionals can help find resources to make your daily life easier. They will work with you to form a long-term care plan and find the services you need. Geriatric care managers can be helpful when family members are all having work.
