Feng Shui a Moving Target

So the question is, Feng Shui for Cars? Really? If you didn’t see the orginal article read Ford Offers Feng Shui Concepts.

I don’t think so. As I have mentioned in previous posts, Feng Shui is about the interface between land, buildings and people. One of the characteristics of buildings is that they generally stay in one place. Even those buildings that move, open or rotate are actually attached to the ground. Neither does the land around a building move except during construction or perhaps a major landscape remodel. But essentially the land stays the same in its important attributes. Since a car is not attached to the ground nor does the land around it remain stable, how can we Feng Shui a car?

Traditional Feng Shui will use the exact location of a building to determine which sections are most beneficial for various tasks-office, bedroom, kitchen for homes or sales office, advertising, mechandise placement, management, etc for a business. If the building keeps moving its location so do those areas. If a car sits in the garage all the time perhaps you could do some sort of assesment. But that is not the function of a car.

There is no “career” sector or “helpful people” area in a car. Keep your car clean and in good running order. Choose a model, style and color that suits your life and business. To me safety is of first concern followed by annual maintenance costs. Use courtesy when driving and don’t drive impaired. If you do that your “car feng shui” will be just fine.

 Take a look at this over the top video about rotating buildings. It’s fun.

 This rotating desgin brings up other Feng Shui red flags. Maybe I’ll write about that too.

    Gee, Feng Shui for a car? I read the Ford article and according to their diagram, my poor husband (who is a creative director) has all of his creativity stuck in the rear passenger wheel well. Bummer!

    Also, 75% of the wealth and relationships energy reside outside the body of the car. That doesn’t bode well for the folks riding inside. It might explain a lot about our bank account, however.

    On the other hand, the knowledge ch’i appears to be right smack dab in the middle of the driver’s seat, which my husband will happily embrace since he thinks that he is ALWAYS right even when he doesn’t move into the right hand lane until it is too late and then curses the other drivers who won’t let him in. I’m just sayin….

    The Ford folks want us to put a medal or an icon or a picture in the glove box to reduce stress. Right now, all I have in the glove box is my vehicle registration, insurance card and the owners manual. Since I’m Jewish, a medal or an icon probably won’t do it. Maybe I’ll toss a “Happy Face” sticker in there so that at least I’ll remember to “have a nice day.”

    All kidding aside, Diane, I have to agree with you that I don’t buy it. I realize that the Ford Motor Company wants to sell cars but I think this is kinda over the edge, ya know? I’m anxious to see what other people think about this.

      Aloha to you Kay and thank you for your comment. I laughed all the way through reading it. It is always good to have a sense of humor. Every time I see a happy face now I am going to think of you. Thanks for reading and welcome.
