W hen it comes to your home having major vibes of positive energy, there is something known as Feng Shui which makes it all possible. So you may not be really considering it to be an actual state of possibility but when it comes to Feng Shui, there are definitely quite a few possibilities that may work for you ( and work great wonders). Staying healthy is at the forefront of everyone’s minds these days. Sure, you know that handwashing, disinfecting, and social distancing will help you achieve that goal. But have you been paying enough attention to your emotional health? Stress can harm your mental well-being and potentially weaken your immune system. While that stress probably won’t subside completely as the pandemic continues to rage on, there is something simple you can do that might take the edge off: Maximize the good energy in your home with feng shui.I am going to be sharing some essential tips with you on ways in which you can create the best space for yourself! These are practical and they will definitely be allowing you to make the most of your space, giving you solid Feng Shui energy in no time!
Enter in Bliss!
In feng shui, your entry represents how energy enters your home and your life. We say the front door is the “mouth of qi.” Naturally, this entry is the first place to start when you want to create good feng shui in your home. Start with decluttering and removing any debris. A lot of objects tend to accumulate at the front door. I’m not saying it needs to be completely empty, but rather uncluttered. Make it work for you.Next, sweep and clean up the area. The front entry (interior and exterior) is often overlooked. Wipe down the door and choose a happy door mat.
That Window Bit!
Windows symbolize the eyes of the adults in the home. For children, they symbolize their voice. To create good feng shui in your home, clean your windows on a regular basis. Clear, clean windows let in more sunlight. Yes, sunlight naturally energizes and wakes us up. It also vibrantly renders all of the colors and objects that we see. Therefore, our homes become more expansive, vibrant, and energetic when we let in more light.As a bonus, use all-natural or homemade cleaners whenever possible. One of our favorites is a simple solution of white vinegar, water, and a few drops of essential oil.
The Position Perspective!
One of the most important principles in feng shui is the commanding position. This governs how you can position yourself in life. Be sure to apply this principle to the location of your bed, desk, and stove. The bed represents you. The desk represents your career. And the stove represents your wealth. When you are in these spaces, be sure that you can see the door without being directly in line with it. For example, when you are lying in bed, sitting at your desk, or cooking at the stove, you want to be able to see the door.
Removing Obstacles in Path!
Take a good look at your daily path through your home. Yep, we’re asking you to literally look at the physical path you walk as you move through your home. From when you wake up and arise from bed, then to the bathroom, and so on as you head out the door. Then from when you get home, make dinner, and end back in bed. We become desensitized to all the blocks and physical obstacles we have in our daily path. Maybe it’s that light fixture that flickers or the door that always sticks and you have to slam closed. It’s an obstacle when you have to squeeze through a cluttered hallway. When you hopelessly peer into a closet jammed with clothes that don’t fit you anymore—all of this affects you! Over time these obstacles can accumulate and create problems for us. So it is time to steer clear of this issue and avoid clutter as much as possible.
Spacious is Your Friend!
Clutter is often in the same sentence as feng shui, but we’d say that feng shui is less about decluttering and more about creating space.How do you make your life more spacious? Start with your home. Find a physical spot: a drawer, room, corner of the refrigerator, desk—the size doesn’t matter—and let go of what’s no longer necessary. When you let something go, you create open space to invite a new, fresh opportunity.
Add Thy Plants Already!
In feng shui, plants embody life energy. What does that mean? Well, living green house plants connect us to nature and bring vibrancy into our homes. Green plants are like fresh pressed organic green juice for our homes—they introduce freshness and vitality. It is high time you add these amazing green bodies of energy to your surroundings.
