Raymond Catchpole, a feng shui expert, reports on several ways to improve energy flow around one's vehicle to combat road rage. Some of his suggestions include:
  • Don't park your car facing your residence, as cars are "predators" which can create feelings of unease among the building’s inhabitants.
  • Remove clutter within the vehicle for better chi flow.
  • Tie a blue ribbon to the rearview mirror, splash salt water in the interior (though probably not on any cloth seats) and keep a bottle of water in the car. These practices are said to encourage a clearer state of mind.
Catchpole's report was commissioned by the Aon Private Clients insurance group. As far as Autoblog can tell, this is not a leftover April Fools' prank. So what feng shui suggestions do you have and/or practice with your vehicle?

      There is a rattle in the front end of my car that sounds kind of like chanting, maybe it's a problem with the Feng Shui bar. Any suggestions?

      Be careful, a "small crystal" prism hanging from a rear view mirror on a string can become a bullet in a not so major accident, killing or wounding the driver or passengers. And that's not a good feeling.
      Same with hard objects, even a cardboard tissue box, perched on the rear window shelf. Nothing should be swinging from your mirror, placed on the shelf or dashboard that isn't screwed or glued securely.

      My car must be a loner. It's chi flows best on curving, twisty roads when no other cars are in sight.

      And it achieves balance through proper modulation of the clutch and accelerator pedals.

      Parking "ON" a Feng Shui expert is best.

      Such overwhelming rejection of the possibility of spiritual power being available (in something as mundane as an automobile) betrays our society's madness, i.e. egocentric assurance that only things controlled by one's own self can have any influence over one's living. I am grateful for the suggestion, and shall begin periodic salt-water baptisms of the interior of my '92 Chevy pickup.

      another suggestion: i carry 3 natural stones and quartz in my car at all times. Hemetite for grounding (mainly). Rose Quartz to allow peace (mainly). and a power crystal of clear quartz to protect myself and the car, and direct energy. (it is also suggested that clear quartz can conserve gasoline). i'm averaging 31 mpg in my Chevy Monte Carlo. maybe it's working!

      Since Feng Shui is based on well founded disciplines, such as architecture, psychology,etc.; and major corporations here in the United States, (& world wide) use Feng Shui principles in building design....i.e. Trump, I'll do what is recommended. I need to know the reasoning behind each mention. Are these suggestions reminderers?
      If only these skeptics, with their comedic comments knew of the times they have been subject to its' practice while driving into a major mall, or theme park park....... Yes, my front door faces south, and yes, I have a fountain running.
