Feng Shui Bad Neighbor Hell? When you can’t move, but your neighbor is an Energy Vampire, what can you do? Thankfully, there are techniques. And if you’re speed reading this looking for a solution, here is the short version. Put a line of salt along your threshold. It’s old school, but it works. It is like the castor oil pack of House Witchery.
I had a massive falling-out with an (ex) friend before Xmas. Unfortunately, she lives next door to me: Our front doors face each other, and our doormats are less than one foot apart. She leaves her door open all the time. I love my qi flow too, but also like my privacy and like to respect others. I am doing my best to avoid, be zen, ignore the pass-aggro acts and not react, but it is internalizing and driving me mental.
I am a pretty intuitive Cancerian, and she is a scary-psychic Pisces. We are both mega sensitive and reactive with lots of fire and water in our charts. We both smudge and use crystals etc.
My gut feeling + intellect tells me this person is mega-needy, manipulative, and plays games if things don’t go her way. She seems to get what she wants after tons of drama.
Feng Shui For Bad Neighbor Rule 1 – Don’t Put Up Gargoyles or Ba Gua Mirrors
Cutting to the chase: I am a bit scared of doing a “Get fuq’d and stay fuq’d” type chant as I don’t want to wish her ill-will or create a lousy karma situation for myself. I want her out of my (previously) peaceful life and home environment, out of the flat next door, off my doorstep and out of my head. A friend suggests I need to be okay with her being there. I’ve tried but it’s hard. Any advice?
In other situations, I would cut my losses, pack my bags, call the removalist, find another place, but I don’t have the luxury or the energy. And, I was here first, and this apartment is one of the best things that has happened in my life after years of moving frequently, and not having my own space. I’m also recovering from significant health problems, of which stress was a contributing factor, and don’t have any more energy to waste on this situation. That said, I have learned some MASSIVE lessons this through this drama (with the help of my psychologist) and am working on gratitude.
Cancerian In An Eclipse
Salt Across The Threshold Is The Castor Oil Hot Pack Of House Witchery
Dear Cancerian In An Eclipse,
I understand the stress of this, especially as a Crab Woman – this is your Power Lair under threat! But is it? First of all, it is better to have a powerful woman living right next door to you than – say – a skeevy gentleman or a person whom you know for a fact was mean to their children or pets. So don’t put up anything that says “dispelling dark energy” – like a gargoyle or even ba gua mirror.
This scenario you are conjuring makes me think of two potent witches living side by side or Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in Whatever Happened To Baby Jane. Not that either of you is decrepit or bitter but the concept of two powerful females at loggerheads but with, deep down, an affinity.
Launch A Diplomatic Mission With The Moon Jupiter Lunar Portal
Also, to be Machiavellian about it, being the person reaching out to resolve this in eloquent fashion puts YOU in the power position. Holding the grudge – a common Cancerian trait, unfortunately – keeps you in a sort of ‘resentful serf’ role. Why not go over on the Moon-Jupiter Lunar Portal with an appropriate gift and affable attitude?
Am I missing something? You can maintain diplomatic relations with a person/country without necessarily approving of everything about them/it. And you can limit your engagement to a level you are comfortable with. Or are you saying that this person is one of those All or Nothing people?
Magic-wise; put a line of salt across your threshold and a small deity statue or image that represents the ruler of your Home sector in the birth chart. So if your 4th House is – say – Taurus, make it a Venusian vibe.
For the best Feng Shui for bad neighbor solution, look at the Flying Star energy at your door. Is it possible that a harmonious entry star has been affected by a yearly influence? You can get a Feng Shui consult or figure it out via a flying star calculator online. I think a proper consult is a fantastic investment, but if that’s not possible, work with the annual energy.
