I have been blessed to travel to over 150 cities across the globe over the last decade. However, whether it be for personal pleasure or business, travelling can be quite stressful.  I have found implementing feng shui solutions for travel have helped calm my nerves every time I embark on a new journey. Here are 4 simple feng shui tips to boost your travel luck.

Place images of places you would like to travel to in the northwest (travel) sector. Note that in feng shui, moving to a new home or relocating to a new job position also counts as travel. Be sure your northwest sector is not missing. A missing northwest sector greatly impacts your travel luck as well as your luck for meeting helpful people.

It has been a dream of mine to hike the Greek Islands and revisit Athens. Before traveling to Greece last month, I placed images of Athens and travel books of Greece in the northwest sector of my living room. I also placed images from travel magazines in the northwest. This got my mind excited about my destination and boosted my travel luck.

Play Offense

As many of you know, Greece has been economically and politically unstable due to its current financial situation. I was a tad nervous about safety. I made sure the northwest sector of my overall home, living room, and bedroom were tidy. I also made sure there was nothing broken (e.g. drains, etc.), as clutter and broken things symbolize blockage and may result in mishaps.

In addition to that, I carried an image of a rhinocero to protect myself against robbery and violence.  It’s very easy to get sick when flying over 15 hours to a destination, so I also carried a small wu lou to protect myself from falling ill while traveling. If you would like to protect yourself from accidents when traveling in a motor vehicle, consider carrying some peacock feathers.

Travel From Your Lucky Direction


It’s best to start your travels from a location that is one of your lucky directions. If you can’t start from your lucky direction, pick a layover that is from one of your lucky directions. Your lucky directions can be easily determined using the Kua number formula.

Increase Travel Luck and Helpful People in Your Life

Not only is the northwest associated with travel, but it is also associated with helpful people. If you want people to be good to you while you are traveling and in everyday life, keep the northwest sector tidy and and boost “helpful people” chi by decorating it as follows:

  • Add hues and decor of silver, gold, white, and black to boost the energy of this sector.
  • Add windchimes to positively activate the metal energy of this sector.
  • Place images of your favorite deities, angels, or loved ones (who are no longer with you) to protect you.
  • Place a conch shell to boost travel luck.
