Even when they’re fully operational and attractive, clocks are problematic from a Feng Shui perspective.
(Learn how to avoid bad clock Feng Shui here.)
During recent client consultations, however, I’ve been coming across a distressing phenomenon: broken clocks.
The clocks have stopped telling the time but stare blankly and uselessly from walls and shelves.
In the worst case I discovered a very large broken clock hidden away under my client’s bed, neglected but not forgotten.
Why is this Bad Feng Shui?
To start, anything that is broken and needs fixing is considered a form of clutter. So by fixing the clock you instantly improve the Feng Shui of your environment.
If you don’t love the clock enough to invest the time or money in repairing it, let it go and make room for something new and wonderful to enter your life.
Secondly, a broken clock is (obviously) stuck, symbolizing any stuckness you may feel in your life. Repairing it so it’s running again brings positive Chi movement into your life.
And finally, the broken clock represents dead time. Just think of all the times you’ve glanced at that clock and had to hesitate about the time it told!
In all of these ways a broken clock literally impedes your progress.
