If your home or business has a lot of peeling paint, it can actually become a bit of a downer – for the overall energy of the site and for you.
When there is something within the building that needs attending like peeling paint there can be a constant thought process within you that continues to ‘Argh’ the sight of it, or a ‘On my to-do list’ note to self.
When you are doing this constantly, even subconsciously, you are focusing your attention on something that is draining your energy. So anything like peeling paint that is creating Sha Qi can make you feel drained, tired and a bit blah.
Just a note though if your whole style is rustic, then this won’t apply especially if you love this and its purposefully kept as a rustic feaure.
Have you ever experienced that feeling you get after painting a room? Your usually pretty pleased-as-punch. It makes you happy and renews the feeling of a clear and uplifting space. So, with any peeling paint it is best to address it as soon as you can.
And that pleased-as-punch feeling shouldn’t be caused by any paint fumes. Using natural paint is the best option for your health. More of that info later in the days and weeks to come.
