Feng Shui and the Toilet

Earlier toilets used to be in the backyard and outside the home. It was believed that all waste products and negative energy was yto be cleansed outside and not allowed to mingle with the positive energy of the house.
But nowadays due to space crunch our homes have bathrooms and toilets in the house. Even bedrooms and guest rooms have attached bathrooms.
It is advisable to not have more than two bathrooms in a house. Also keep the bathroom door always closed with the commode lid always shut after every use. According to Feng Shui all holes and drains are outlets for money going out and since the toilet hole is the biggets in the house it is aldisable to keep it closed after each use. If the toilet comes in the south area it will lead to material and finacial losses and bad name of the owner and family members. One can grow tall plants that survive in less light and allow for moistur econtent in the bathroom. Keep the colour of the bathroom according to the feng shui area. Red is not advisable as this place is where we relieve ourselves. One can go according to highlights and different nick nacks using specific colour for that particular area. Hanging a mirror just opposite to the toilet door will help the negative energy to fall back and not enter the home.
Always keep decorations and fancy artworks away from the toilet. It is also advisable to not highlight the bathroom much and keep it toned down as compared to the house. Keep the toilet disinfected and fresh smelling and clean as this will affect the health of the whole family and inmates of the house.
