Feng Shui (fung schway) is a system of living in harmony with your environment. Environments that use Feng Shui look beautiful and serene. Moreover, Feng Shui can lead to better health, wealth and relationships.
In recent times, Feng Shui has grown in popularity. Corporations such as Coca-Cola, Bed, Bath & Beyond and Proctor Gamble use Feng Shui in their corporate buildings. Many celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey, have their own personal Feng Shui consultants.
What’s it All About?
Fundamentally, Feng Shui is about chi or life force energy. It’s the invisible force present in everything. Chi is energy, and when it’s blocked in your home, you may feel stuck in a rut. In order to live a healthy and happy, it’s best to have a flow of chi in and around your home.
Employing the basic principles of balance and flow in your environment not only creates a visually and emotionally appealing space, it allows you to feel grounded and comfortable. It’s like acupuncture for your home, unblocking stagnate energy and revitalizing your environment.
Feng Shui is based on the principle that people lead healthier and more abundant lives when their environment is in balance. When when you increase your enjoyment of your home, you’ll increase your enjoyment of your life!
A Few Basic Tips
Create good energy in all areas of your home. If you are uplifted when you look at an object in your home remove it. Fill your home with things you love and uplift your spirits. Love is a very powerful emotion and creates good energy.
- Open the windows throughout your home and let fresh air in!
- Let the sunshine in. Don’t keep your home too dark. This creates stagnation. Too much darkness is like too much clutter – it weighs you down.
- Fix everything in your home that is in need of repair or is broken or chipped.
- Remove dead plants outside and keep plants inside trimmed and healthy.
- Declutter your home. Clean out your closets. Clutter prevents the flow of energy.
- Because your bedroom is very important in supporting your health it is important to ensure that it has good Feng Shui. Generally speaking, it’s best to place your bed along the longest wall of the room. And don’t put your bed against a wall with a toilet directly behind it because it creates negative energy.
