In order to detect any bad energy at home, it is necessary to uplift ourselves with good habits and correct attitudes in our living before we can identify any bad vibration at home. It may sound like a simple thing to do yet we observe many people, especially the younger generations, could not follow through our guidance given on the things that make up good habits and correct attitude.

So what are the important good habits that we should practice to help us have some ability to detect bad chi at home? These good habits include having proper time for bed, avoiding smoking and drinking, ideal time to eat our meals, proper rest and going for daily exercises in the park or garden. Meals should be of a balanced diet nature and not more than three meals a day.

These are all important basic requirements to possess and achieve in our daily routine before one could learn to access the intuition of acknowledging whether our home is cordial in atmosphere or having unharmonious vibration. Through intuition, one will be able to know how to tell if there is negative energy in your home.

When we have learnt and practiced our life to live with simple necessities, bare needs and humble yet decent accommodation, we will gradually build up a comfort zone of self-satisfying needs and contentment in outlook. This will then pave the natural way to achieve our natural instinct and intuition to detect bad energy in the house.

When we have been living with all simple needs and basic necessities from young, we tend to develop an inner instinct and intuition in our mind. This is because when our mind of young tender age are at the greatest absorption of good exposures and ideal experiences, we will rapidly grow the power of natural instinct and intuition, hence developing our ability to detect any presence of bad energy at home.

Even though it is best to start young, it is not too late to begin adopting a healthier lifestyle and simpler living to gradually lay a good foundation towards gaining natural instinct and intuition to detect negative energy in house.

Prevention is always better than cure when it comes to having a home with good, positive qi.

To begin with, it is common knowledge that nothing comes from nothing. We need to do something in order to create another thing we want in life.

For instance, we need to buy and install a fan in order to relieve the hot atmosphere at home. Similarly, we could create a good atmosphere of living at home by putting up some positive actions.

So what are the things we can do to create that positive vibe and energy in our living space?

One of them is having a good upkeep of our living atmosphere where our house is clean and bright everywhere. When our house is always clean and bright, we create an atmosphere of good vibration and shiny reflection. This will help thwart any bad energy at home.

In knowing the cause and the presence of all bad energy inviting items or actions at home, one must rectify these unwanted vibrations at home. This can be done by either engaging a good genuine spiritual master or teacher to neutralize the bad effect of the unwanted energy.

Another effective but costly way is by demolishing the rooftop of the house to allow the good positive sunshine into the entire house for 7 days. This will then destroy the bad energy at home and rejuvenate the whole atmosphere of good vibration of your living space.

It is very unfortunate that in this millennium years of sophisticated innovative technologies, many parents are too busy and preoccupied with all sorts of electronic gadgets that the upbringing of their children are absent of informal education at home where the basic importance of good manner, respect, obedience and kindness are defective in their characters.

The end result of these unguided children is the undesirable state of addiction to smoking, being heavy drinkers, lazy workers, having filthy behavior and involving in all kinds of illicit trades. When the mind is polluted with negative actions and remains unsteady, it will never be within reach of acquiring the ability to sense any unwelcome presence of bad energy at home.

Instead, these children themselves when grown up will become the liability of attracting more bad energy at home. This is why we always stress upon the importance of good parenting – parents must be responsible for providing good informal education to their children so as to prevent the possibility of their own flesh and blood to be the very reason for inviting bad, negative energy into the home.
