Feng Shui For Cars

Status: Pseudoscience
Aon Private Clients, a British insurance broker, has commissioned the first ever study of how to improve the feng shui of cars. They note that implementing these recommendations "could improve the flow of energy in vehicles and help drivers alleviate the negative feelings which lead to road rage." Suggestions offered by the study include:
  • A driver should park his or her car facing away from the driver’s home. According to feng shui, cars are ‘predatory tigers’. If parked facing towards a house or office building, they create a threat to the occupants of the building.
  • Remove clutter from the car: it ‘sucks the life force out of the driver’.
  • If using wi-fi connections such as Bluetooth, drivers and passengers should drink regular quantities of still water to flush out the effects of this negative and draining energy from their bodies.
  • To get rid of negative energy inside the car, which could affect the driver’s mood, the owner should sit in the car and sing, clap their hands or play music to make a statement that it is now your cleared space and will go forward refreshed and free from past events.
  • Keep the windows clean: this allows chi energy to enter the car from outside. In feng shui terms, the windows are the eyes for the car.
  • Tie a small blue ribbon on the satellite navigation or the rear-view mirror: the colour blue is a representation of Water, the perfect driving state of mind: clear, thoughtful, flowing and clear.
  • Keep a bottle of water in the car for the same reason
  • Sprinkle sea salt crystals on the carpets: they absorb passengers’ negative energy and can be cleaned out regularly taking the negativity with them.

Don't forget to keep a .357 in the glove box, it can be used to eliminate negativity in other drivers, like when you rear end them because your water bottle rolled under your brake pedal.

Actually, some of those are good suggestions anyway, like keeping your car (relatively) free of trash and keeping the windows clean. A bottle of water's also good, as it can provide a quick wake-up during tiring drives.

My mom has a plastic Buddha pendant tied to the rear view mirror of her instead. Apparently it has the same effects as having a blue ribbon tied around the rear view mirror.

Oh, yeah. Both my parents also keep a 1.5l bottle of water in the car all the time.

Yeah, we're Chinese.

I shall have to ask my sister who works for AON. It sounds more like a Great British Piss Take than anything else. It also analysed car models and the sort of person likely to drive them. Some are safety suggestions anyway. Drinking water (or anything else, or eating) while driving, even if stopped at lights, is illegal here. Ditto carrying a gun in the glovebox.

They said "clear" twice in one of the bullets. Why didn't they just say "very clear"?

"If using wi-fi connections such as Bluetooth"
Since when is Bluetooth the same as WiFi?
