It’s a complex body of knowledge that presents to us the balance and harmony between the energies in a given space – kitchen, garden, office, or home. Although it’s looked at as a pseudo-science, Feng Shui clearly impacts the architecture and the interiors of a space, and this art has earned itself a notable spot among the eastern and western cultures alike.
So, if you want to add a touch of Feng Shui to the aesthetics of your living space, read on. By the way, even if you’re skeptical about Feng Shui’s ability to invite love, prosperity, and happiness into your homes, you’ll be definitely making your space aesthetically beautiful. It’s a win-win. Here are 6 Feng Shui tips to keep the negative energies at bay and give yourself a lift in life:
1. Say Hello With Feng Shui At The Doorway
You definitely wouldn’t want to be welcomed by a pile of garbage, or a broken door, or a messed up doorway when you get home, right? It really spoils the mood. Depending on what you see at the entrance, you can either become an angryMogamboor a jubilant Happy Singh. Opt for some pleasant things like a water fountain or a soothing painting at the entrance, it can keep negative energy away.
2. Let There Be Light And Air
According to Feng Shui, for positive energy to thrive in your homes, it should have ample natural light and fresh air. Instead of keeping your homes dark and dingy, make it a point to ensure that there is enough brightness and ventilation. In case you don’t have the convenience to keep the indoor space airy and bright, you can always opt for air purifiers, full-spectrum lights, etc.
3. Clutter-Free Zones For A Clutter-Free Life
A whole of clutter at home or your workplace can act as a magnet for the negative energy. Broken, damaged things should be thrown away or repaired. The trash should be where it belongs (just in case there’s a doubt: the dustbin). And all the other things need to be organized and arranged properly. That’s the only way we can invite positive energies into our homes. Maybe we should listen to our moms and clean our rooms, no?
4. Let Positive Vibes Chime Into Your Homes
Just like when the good times are rolling, you go ahead and announce it to the world, the wind chimes announce the arrival of good times into your homes. Hang them at the doorway to bring peace and prosperity into your lives.
5. It’s All About The Placement
Have you ever walked into someone else’s room and wished to change how certain things were placed in the room? Yes, placement of furniture, accessories, lights, decor, etc, matter. For instance, Feng Shui principles restrict you from placing your bed opposite the mirror (it’s creepy to watch yourself sleep, right?). In the kitchen, your sink and the stove need to be in the same line and not on opposite sides. Always ensure that the sofa in the living room is in direction of the main door. Another way of pushing out negative energy is by showing it the mirror, hang a mirror facing the main door.
6. Accessorize Your Space
Just like we compliment our outfit with accessories, our living spaces demand a little bit of accessorizing too. There are some unique and interesting accessories that you can use to keep positivity in your house. The three-legged toad is a Feng Shui charm to welcome wealth, prosperity, and success. Place this at the main door. You’ll see how positively it will influence your savings and earnings. If you are too bothered about positive energy being a temporary guest, by sounding a Tibetan bell occasionally, you can make sure that positivity never leaves your side.
Feng Shui believes in attracting the positive Chi energy and ensuring its presence around us at all times to bring happiness, prosperity, and success. So, if you think you could use some of these positive vibes in your life, go ahead and follow the steps of Feng Shui.
