Dear Kartar Diamond: Hello, I have purchased a pretty bracelet, but it doesn’t seem like it has power energy. Do bracelets have power energy?? Thank you.

Answer: You posted a somewhat cryptic comment about a bracelet having no power.  I am going to assume that you bought a bracelet under the marketing gimmick that it was a “feng shui” bracelet.

As a long time authentic Feng Shui practitioner, this is one of the most annoying thing that people do in the name of Feng Shui.  They market items and placebos which have nothing to do with Feng Shui, but the “phrase” implies “balance” or some kind of mystical power.

Feng Shui is the natural science of determining how people are influenced by their surrounding physical features, be they man-made or natural, like a house or a lake.

Feng Shui is not about jewelry, haircuts, business logos, diets, a bra, refrigerator magnetics, styling a car interiors or many of the other gimmicky claims I have heard over the last 30 years.

That said, no disrespect to those who enjoy partaking in the healing potential for natural gemstone and crystal bracelets.  I happen to like natural crystals and the purported power they have to strengthen our minds and bodies when used therapeutically.
