What Are The Common Myths On Ceiling Fan Feng Shui?

Ceiling fans have a rather bad reputation among many Feng Shui practitioners. However, most of this reputation are based on several misconceptions about Feng Shui and how it affects objects in a room. Like most items, ceiling fans are neither inherently good or bad. What matters is how they are used and positioned. This is what really matters in Feng Shui, so if you're concerned about your ceiling fans then this article may help provide some insight on the issue.

What Are The Common Myths On Ceiling Fan Feng Shui?

How Do Ceiling Fans Affect Your Home's Feng Shui?

First of all, it's important to keep in mind that Ceiling Fans are neither inherently good or bad for Feng Shui. Like most household items, the answer depends on a lot of factors. The problem with Ceiling Fans is that they are often difficult to position in a way that is conducive to good Chi. The good news, though, is that there are plenty of things you can do in order to prevent your ceiling fans from delivering bad Chi into your home. This article will show a few popular Feng Shui related myths about ceiling fans, and the actual truth behind them.

Myth 1: Ceilings Fans Should Not Appear in the Bedroom

In traditional Feng Shui, you're only supposed to have one thing above your head while you're sleeping and that is the ceiling. However, this doesn't mean that you can't have them inside the room. It only means that you can't have them right above your bed. This is because heavy items should not be positioned over your resting area, and this doesn't just apply to ceiling fans. The same rule also applies to bells and wind chimes. Heavy items mean heavy/oppressive energy, which is why Feng Shui experts don't recommend installing heavy items on the ceiling, right over your bed. So if you want to add a ceiling fan in your bed room, try to keep it as far away from your bed as possible. This way, you'll be able to avoid most of the negative energy.

Myth 2: The Ceiling Fan's Circular Motion Kills Chi

No, this is very untrue. A Ceiling Fan's rotation does not kill Chi, but instead helps to increase its circulation around the house. So if your house has been designed to absorb a lot of positive energy then a well positioned ceiling fan can help to distribute it evenly between the various rooms. Ceiling fans will only "kill" Chi if there's very little space in your home to begin with. If this is the case then your ceiling fans will only cause the Chi to scatter or bounce off all over the place, making your home's Feng Shui even worse off than before.

Myth 3: A Ceiling Fan's Rotation Creates A Downward Spiral, Thus Driving Positive Chi Downwards

This particular myth is only true if the ceiling fan is positioned in a room that has very few entrances. This is because if the Chi has nowhere to go then the ceiling fan will force it to take the only direction available, namely down. Furthermore, it's also worth mentioning that the downward push of most ceiling fans will only push down Chi if its set to maximum. If your ceiling fans don't have very rapid rotation then they are more likely to cause the Chi around your home to circulate rather than go down. So in order to prevent your ceiling fans from pushing the Chi downwards, you will need to do two things. First of all, you will need to install your ceiling fans in relatively spacious rooms, and secondly, you need to adjust their rotation speed to a safe minimum.

Myth 4: Ceiling Fans Cause Unseen Pressures

This is true, but only if you install your ceiling fans in a low room or if they hang too low, like those found on a slanted ceiling. When this happens, the ceiling fan really does make cause Chi depression within the room. In contrast, ceiling fans which are installed in rooms with high ceilings tend to benefit the room, since it offers increased Chi circulation, as opposed to high pressure. So if you have a lot of rooms with low ceilings, it's probably not a good idea to give them ceiling fans.

Myth 5: Ceiling Fans Are Cutting Chi

Cutting or Arrow Chi refers to sharp items which are positioned directly in front of people. A good example of this would be a sharp knife right across the doorway. Not only does this create actual physical hazard, it also disrupts the flow of Chi. The reason why ceiling fans are often considered Arrow or Cutting Chi's is because some ceiling fans are often placed in potentially dangerous areas. This is also true if the ceiling fan is old, malfunctioning or if serves no real purpose. Under such circumstances then a ceiling fan may be considered as an Arrow Chi.

So in order to avoid this situation, you will need to make sure that your ceiling fan does not present any danger to you or members of your household. To do this, you will need to ask yourself a few important questions:
1. Is the Ceiling Fan Safe and Secure?
2. Is It in Good Working Condition?
3. Does the Room Need It for Ventilation?
4. Does It Improve the Room's Ambiance?
If you answer yes to all these questions then your ceiling fan is safe and will not hamper the Feng Shui of your home.

Myth 6: Lighted Ceiling Fans Are Bad for Feng Shui

This is only true if the ceiling fan's lights are not adjustable. Feng Shui usually recommend that lights should be adjustable and have varying levels of intensity. If your ceiling fan's lights are too bright and they're not adjustable then they could easily ruin your home's Feng Shui. On the other hand, if the light is relatively mild, or if it's adjustable, then it won't really have much of an effect on the Chi.

Also, if you want to use lighted Ceiling Fans, try not to install them in places like chairs or dinner tables, as these locations can harm the Chi of people who sit or stand underneath them.
