Recently, some readers submitted multiple questions about Feng Shui bracelets – what it does, how come it’s not working for them, and such. This article seeks to address these questions. 

Strictly Speaking, There is No “Feng Shui Bracelets”

As Feng Shui Master Kartar Diamond mentioned, bracelets are being marketed as something that brings some kind of mystical power, and these bracelets have nothing to do with Feng Shui.

This is absolutely true.

The current environment uses “good luck” and “positive energy” synonymously as “Feng Shui”. Meaning, if something brings good luck, it is Feng Shui. If something brings positive energy, it is also Feng Shui.

But strictly speaking, jewelry, bracelets and things you wear has nothing to do with Feng Shui. The fundamentals of Feng Shui is about using the compass and identifying forms on the inside and outside of your dwelling. It’s about your living space. It is not about what you wear. That is why, strictly speaking, there is no such thing as “Feng Shui bracelets”.

However, I don’t think this the term is going away. Therefore, throughout this article, I will still be referring to these bracelets as “Feng Shui Bracelets”.

What are the Benefits of “Feng Shui Bracelets”?

In general, wearing a Feng Shui bracelet is thought to help bring about a sense of balance and well-being, as well as attract good fortune and prosperity.

There are many different types of bracelets, and countless people believe in their power and have reported positive results. Some wearers claim to have experienced improved health, increased wealth, and better relationships after wearing a Feng Shui bracelet.

Feng Shui bracelets are believed to bring positive energy to the wearer with its healing powers. Wearing certain types of bracelets can help balance and harmonize the energy, or “qi,” in your body and environment. The bracelets, through its interaction with your body, can have amazing effects on your physical and mental health.

The healing bracelets are based on the idea that energy flows through the body in a system of channels known as “meridians”, or passageways through which energy flows through the body (these passageways are also acupuncture points in Chinese medicine). The bracelets are designed to stimulate the flow of qi and promote balance by utilizing the energy of specific stones and crystals. Each stone or crystal has unique properties that can affect the body’s energy flow and bring about different benefits. Others apply the same concept using the practice of Chakra healing.

However, skeptics argue that any perceived benefits of Feng Shui bracelets may be due to a placebo effect. This means that the wearer believes in the power of the bracelet and therefore experiences the benefits.

As you’ll see later in this article, there are scientific evidences that point to the healing powers of the materials that Feng Shui bracelets are made of. Plus, countless people continue to swear by the positive results when wearing the bracelets.

In a nutshell, these bracelets are believed to have the power to balance and harmonize energy, promote healing, and bring good fortune to the wearer. But the question remains: do Feng Shui bracelets really work?

Evidences that Bracelets DO Work (But Not through Feng Shui)

For example, some bracelets are made from natural materials such as jade, which is believed to promote good health and fortune. Other bracelets may incorporate crystals such as amethyst or rose quartz, which are believed to enhance love, calmness, and positive energy.

Feng Shui brings harmony through your living space – compass directions, forms in the outside and inside of your home, and auspicious Qi gathering. Bracelets, on the other hand, brings positivity through it’s influence and interaction with the human body through its inherent elemental quality. Different types of Feng Shui bracelets have different properties and benefits.

From Experience: You and Your Bracelet has to Match

Each person contains a different kind of energy and interacts differently with different kinds of properties. That is why some of us are allergic to certain materials, and why our body reacts differently to certain things while others don’t.

The same applies to Feng Shui bracelets. Your magnetic field and the bracelet’s magnetic field has to match.

When the surface of the bracelet gets brighter over time when you wear it constantly, that means you and your bracelet is a match. Darker colored bracelet will begin to shine and glow, and brighter colored bracelet might get paler and with more light-reflective properties.

On the contrary, when the surface of the bracelet gets darker, it can mean one of two things – it has absorbed lots of negative energy for you, or you and the bracelet don’t match (which might bring bad luck for some people). If that happens, it is a good idea to shop for a new Feng Shui bracelet.

Please note that the surface of the bracelet doesn’t get brighter or darker immediately. This process might take months for some and years for others.

The Feng Shui Bracelet Has Worked for You If It “Breaks”

Here is a very common belief in Asia – when wearing your bracelet and the string or one of the bracelet beads break, then the bracelet has stopped a deadly Xa Qi (negative energy) for you. The Xa Qi described here is somewhat similar to the Xa in Feng Shui, like poison arrow, T-junction, etc. This type of negative energy can range from those that physically harm you to those where others are cursing you. Some even claim that it helps you avoid meeting those that will eventually hurt you – whether that be relationship, business, or others.

If your bracelet breaks on you, do not panic. It has done its job, and all you have to do is to be thankful and start shopping for a new Feng Shui bracelet.


Although “Feng Shui Bracelets” are not about Feng Shui, it does have a role in bringing health and prosperity to people’s lives.

The bracelets remain popular for those seeking to enhance their energy flow and promote balance and wellness in their lives. Scientific studies have shown that the material construct of certain Feng Shui bracelets have healing and protective powers. With better health comes more mental clarity, and that is how these bracelets attract wealth, positivity and prosperity. It is no wonder why so many people swear by it.
