Read on for 8 tips to boost the positive energy in your home with Feng Shui.
Feng Shui Rule # 1 – Add Nature and Light Where Possible
Moving the outdoors > indoors, introducing plants, opening windows and letting fresh air circulate through your home will have a huge influence on your energy. Depression is often spurred on by too much literal darkness, so fill your home with as much natural light as possible and create a space of peace and tranquillity.
Feng Shui Rule # 2 – De-Clutter
A cluttered house equates to a cluttered mind in the realm of Feng Shui! A tidy and well-organised home will bring more positive energy in. Discard any items that are unused or broken – these possessions can encourage negative energy. Work out what’s essential and get rid of things that may weigh you and your home down.
Feng Shui Rule # 3 – Create A Bedroom Sanctuary
Your bedroom is one of the most important rooms in your home. It’s our escape from the outside world and a place of recuperation and relaxation. Create a space that will relax you by adding candles and scents, crystals and plants. In turn you’ll get a better nights sleep and have increased energy in the morning.
Feng Shui Rule # 4 – Watch Your Words
Being aware of the words you speak also plays a role in the energy attracted to your home. Your home should be treated with love and respect and speaking words of love and compassion will clear the air and have a positive impact on you and your family.
Feng Shui Rule # 5 – Combine Natural Elements For A Sense Of Balance
FengShui is all about the structure of the five elements: wood, earth, metal, fire and water and how they interact with each other. Having something representing these five elements in every room is said to keep you grounded and balanced in your life and environment. The easiest way to do this? Incorporate the colours that symbolize each element into your home; black = water, green = wood, red = fire, yellow, tan and brown = earth and white= metal.
Feng Shui Rule # 6 – Have An Accessible And Clear Front Entry
According to the principles of Feng Shui, energy flows through the front door and into the rest of your life. An open pathway from the front door is essential for positive energy to flow straight through your home. Your house number should be prominently displayed, and all entryways should be un-cluttered and un-obstructed in order to receive maximum blessings.
Feng Shui Rule # 7 – Include Scents and Aromas
Scents and aromas around your home provoke positive memories and create a warm and inviting space. They also clear negative energy. If candles are too over-powering, add water and a few drops of oil into a spritzer bottle and spray throughout your home. Be sure to spray some on your bed for a good nights sleep.
Feng Shui Rule # 8 – Allow Your Room To Flow
The most important thing with furniture and Feng Shui is to make sure your furniture does not restrict free passage through your home. Choose pieces you love and avoid overcrowding with accessories and furniture so that energy has room to flow.
