Award winning Feng Shui consultancy, Rising Dragon Feng Shui, announce their role as Feng Shui advisors to Ballymore Homes’ new Embassy Gardens development

There is little doubt these days that the Dragon truly is rising. It’s hard to open an article on investment or economics and not be amazed by the massive transformation that has been going on in China. As the Dragon opens it’s doors, it’s created a growing middle class and many wealthy elites. Chinese manufacturing now pervades the world and it’s led to many Chinese nationals seeking accommodation for themselves in London where they can conduct business. Ballymore Homes are not only experts at building stylish developments, they’re keenly aware of the need to think from the buyer’s perspective and so enlisted the help of Rising Dragon Feng Shui founder, Master Angela Ang, when it came taking a Feng Shui consultation of their major new development at Embassy Gardens in Nine Elms.

A model of Embassy Gardens

“Feng Shui is no more a Chinese cultural practice than NLP is American”, spoke Angela Ang. “It works for or against everyone regardless of where they are from and knowledge of it is what allows you to choose which side of that equation you are on. However Chinese people talk about Feng Shui a lot because it has a long history in our culture just like the way Westerners talk about psychology a lot. I actually think the two disciplines go together very well and everyone can benefit from using either or better still, both.”

Working together, Rising Dragon Feng Shui and Ballymore Homes produced a comprehensive Feng Shui audit report of the Embassy Gardens developments which provides a useful run down of significant Feng Shui features in the location.

“As a Chinese person, I know that a lot of Westerners confuse Feng Shui with interior design. Aesthetics do have an impact and it’s placed as a small consideration in traditional Feng Shui,” continues Master Ang. “What Chinese people really want to know about when we talk about Feng Shui is whether the plot of land itself is in a good location. Does it have supporting features in the landscape that bring prosperous energy to that location? Are there forms within the landscape that help the Chi energy accumulate? These types of considerations are far more important since whether you walls are white or beige is easy to change, but it’s far harder to get a river to run by your home or a mountain to rise behind it. These are the types of things I looked for in my Feng Shui audit of Embassy Gardens and I’m delighted to say that Ballymore Homes have chosen a winner there. The fact that on top of that Ballymore have done such a stylish and decadent job on design aesthetics is just the cherry on the cake.”

The Feng Shui audit of Embassy Gardens is available for prospective buyers at this significant development. In total Embassy Gardens will deliver up to 2,000 new homes, potential for over 500,000 sq ft of office and flexible workspace, new leisure facilities, including a new Heath and Well Being Centre, a 100 bed hotel and 130,000 sq ft of retail, bar and restaurant space including a new grocery store and other uses to support the 1,800 people working and visiting the new Embassy every day. It has been built in close conjunction with Wandsworth Borough Council as part of the regeneration of over 20 acres of industrial and warehousing land combined with The Mayor of London called the area the new central London and the US Government deciding to relocate it’s embassy there.

New Study Shows Cancer Rate Rise Near Mobile Masts in Birmingham

A recent study into an alleged cancer cluster in the Shadwell area of Birmingham, in Midlands UK has shown that there was a rise in the rate of certain types of cancers relative to other parts of Birmingham after a mobile phone base station was established there. Medical records from GPs and hospitals were obtained, over four 3-year time periods and carefully examined. These showed that there was a significant increase in the likelihood of developing cancer, compared with other people living in the West Midlands, though it did vary from cancer to cancer.

The report rightly concludes that just one study of one location is not conclusive and yet at the same time it does clearly highlight the importance of caution. EMFs are a powerful type of unseen energy and they’ve not been about for all that long. The science of what mobile phone emissions do to living organisms is still in it’s infacy and new forms of EMF are being rolled out all the time. 4G is the very latest and I’m sure the geeks are already at work planning what 5G or whatever comes next will be like. It’s unlikely that at this stage, their planning includes much consideration of what their EMFs are doing to life forms at a cellular level. More likely they’re thinking about how it can go faster, carry more data and reach further into homes and buildings than ever.

In my professional experience I have seen clients where there were numerous unexplained health issues that their doctors were struggling to treat them. Health issues often cause stress cracks to appear in people’s work and love lives. Of the cases I’ve seen personally, I would not recommend living near to a mobile phone mast or an electricity pylon. It does seem that brick gives some level of protection; clients I’ve seen where masts are in direct line of sight from their home have reported more symptoms than those where it was blocked by other buildings. There are specialists in electrosmog, a subject that’s beyond the scope of a traditional Feng Shui consultation, and some give ideas on things that can be done if you can’t move yourself away from the source of the pollution easily. I’ve seen protective paints for walls and special screens to put on windows that are designed to limit the amounts of EMFs entering the house. What I always recommend is this:

  1. Never buy a house near a mobile mast or electricity pylon. If you see what look like lamp posts with no lights on somewhere on your street, it’s a mobile mast. They call it ‘street furniture’. Avoid them and always say no when the council send applications from mobile companies to add more to your street. You stand little to gain from it being there and risk losing a lot
  2. Don’t use wifi at home. DLan is a way of sharing your broadband and network through electrical plug sockets and it is both faster and gives off far less electrosmog
  3. Always turn your mobile phone off at night. Please do not sleep with it turned on and left charging right by your head!

Technology is a must in this day and age however balance never goes out of fashion! Remember to give yourself plenty of time off-grid to make up for all that hard work and frantic connectivity when you are plugged into the system. At very minimum, make sure your IT and mobile communications equipment goes to sleep when you do.
