Why the Toilet is Called a ‘Throne’

Feng shui expert to explain the trouble with toilets – according to the principles of feng shui

Ladies and gentlemen … effective immediately, the new rule in your household should be: the toilet seat AND the lid must be left in the down position. Always! According to feng shui expert and author, Terri Perrin, Fine Art of Intention Feng Shui, a yawning toilet presents an open invitation for your wealth energy or chi to head for the sewers.

“The bathroom can be your home's biggest energy drain,” explains feng shui consultant and author, Terri Perrin. “While some people may tell you that toilets are 'bad' feng shui, that's not true! For obvious reasons, toilets are recognized as essential. It is the location of the toilet in the home, not the toilet itself, which is a concern. So much emphasis is put on the toilet because it is the king of all energy drains in our home, representing 60 per cent or more of wastewater flow… Another good reason to call it a ‘Throne!’ Rather that label the toilet as a bad thing, I consider its location in the home and teach people how to apply simple feng shui cures to ensure that only waste, not wealth, goes down the drain.”

Perrin, will be giving a free 20-minute talk addressing The Trouble with Toilets According to the Principles of Feng Shui at 12:45 p.m. on Sunday, April 15 at the Comox Band Hall. Her presentation is one of several being given between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the 2nd Annual Spring Spirit Fair.
