One of fengshui energy stealers is BROKEN CROCKERY dishes or cups!! In Feng Shui, crockery symbolises wealth and if you eat from a chipped plate or broken cup you are welcoming failure and financial problems. Using chipped or broken plates, bowls, and glasses create bad feng shui for whoever is using it. It hinders the financial and career luck of the person who uses it. Let's take it this way, any broken items you have at home is a bad negative energy (basically its dead energy) surrounding you and if you use it to serve food, so you are transferring this dead energy inside your body.
