Instead of making feng shui remedies simple, ignorant few prefer the complicated by dressing their office like a chinese restaurant. There are 2 major types of “negative” feng shui energy. The visible forms 形煞 and invisible energy 煞气. Bad form energies are things we can see e.g. T-junctions, convex roads, constructions etc. Invisible energy are based on Qi calculation from feng shui schools such as San Yuan, Qi Men, Xuan Kong flying star and many others.
From abstract to tangible 化无形为有形
The subject of feng shui is abstract. You need imagination to appreciate what the feng shui master do for you. For me i prefer to use ordinary items as feng shui remedies to deflect or reduce bad energies. What i try to do over here is to transform “abstract” belief into “tangible” energy. In feng shui jargon call 化无形为有形 or 化虚为实. You can call it as turning virtual into reality.
To some who do not understand the concept of feng shui still cling onto expensive talisman or “kai guang” items like magic. The more expensive the more useful is the item. They mock and criticise the use of potted plants, pebbles, door mat, paintings, clock, air-condition, mirrors, fan…etc. All ordinary household items.
In advanced feng shui we use symbolism in the form of the material, shape and quantity of an item e.g. 6 bronze coin symbolic to heaven qian gua 乾卦 and metal-element. A pink colour door represent mild fire i.e. ding 丁火. Whitish rounded pebbles as earth-element 艮卦 etc. The list goes on.

Power of visualisation 意象 in feng shui
Household items that were used as feng shui cures fufill iChing symbolism such as colour, shape, material. Take for instance warmonger flying star 7 is a metal element, just placing a glass of water is sufficient to dilute the negative energy. On the flip side of the coin when one see a sword without it’s scabbard or headless painting it sends shiver down our spine. In Chinese we call 有其形必有其象 meaning when there is “form” there is always symbolism or representation.
