High Rises, Feng Shui and Dowsing

A lot of my e-zine subscribers are managers of high rise buildings. High rises present their own set of challenges when it comes to feng shui because feng shui works with the energy of the earth so the closer to ground level your living and work spaces are the better your feng shui will work.
The higher you are off the ground the further ch'i (pronounced chee and meaning "energy") has to travel to reach the space. This means the higher you go in a building the harder it is for ch'i to reach you and the longer it will take your feng shui activations to work.

If you live or work in a high rise building try to get space somewhere between the 1st and 5th floor of the building. This is where you'll experience the greatest benefits from feng shui. The effectiveness is reduced by the time you get to the 6th floor and by the 11th floor you may feel that you're not experiencing any change because it takes so much longer for the energy to rise up and circulate through the building. You will still benefit from feng shui, however it's likely that it will take 9 months or longer to notice changes taking place.

Now, interestingly enough, stress caused by fault lines, underground water, electric outlets and interference from cell phone and satellite towers actually increases the higher you go in a building. So if you live or work on the first floor you may barely notice these types of stress in your environment but someone on the second floor may be very affected by it because the energy of this stress doubles from one floor to the next. If you live or work above the first floor you'll definitely want to get your space (or building if you can) dowsed.

Another reason you want to dowse your space is that this environmental stress reduces the effectiveness of your feng shui activations. The combination of slowing ch'i and increased environmental stress the higher up you go makes activating your feng shui pointless without dowsing first.
