Place a Wu Lou in the Illness Star #2, the Misforune Star #5 and the Victory Star #1 of your house or room based on your Bagua map.
The Wulou (Calabash) is revered both in Buddhist and Taoist circles as a symbol of longevity and perfect health.
The Wu Lou in its original form is a fruit and when dried was traditionally used to store medicine or water which is is how it got its name “giver of life”. The shape of the Calabash evolved into brass (metal weakens earth) by Feng Shui masters many years ago in order to absorb the negative energy.
Healing herbs are often placed in the bottom of a Wu Lou.
The top half of the gourd symbolizes heaven, and the bottom half is earth, with harmony as a result. The WuLou or HuLu is also said to have the ability to absorb bad chi, for the reason that Taoist monks use the gourd to incarcerate evil spirits.
