The ancient Chinese practice of Feng Shui is about organizing your interior space in a way that will balance the flow of energy to ultimately create harmony in your life. It is quite fascinating how connected we are to our environments and how they can affect our well-being. While we are no experts, there are general guidelines to Feng Shui your home. We hope these easy tips help invite positive energy into your life:
Each space of your home contains significant elements related to your life. The most common elements include, your desk (which represents your career), your bed (which represents you) and the stove (which represents wealth). Essentially, you want to ensure these important pieces of furniture are in a better position to see the door or entrance of the space. But, you do not want to be in direct line with the door, and you shouldn't have your back to it either. The concept is to be situated in the best position to welcome optimal positive energy.
While this may seem obvious, many people do not realize how clutter can subconsciously affect mental clarity. Maintaining a clean workspace can help navigate stressful times and will also give you a fresh start to each day which can help with productivity.
Clutter free spaces should also include the front entry to your home. It is noted, that the front door is where the all the energy enters. So, it is important not to have anything blocking or in the way when you enter the space.
Welcoming natural light throughout your home is key to good energy. If you have spaces where lighting should be improved, consider hanging a mirror in a position that will reflect the light.
Incorporating the 5 elements - earth, wind, fire, water and metal - into your home can help balance your emotional life. These components can be present in your interior space either symbolically or physically.
