Feng Shui, which originated in China, is believed to create positive energy within your home and establish a harmonious living environment.
According to many, meditation helps you live a more fulfilling life.
An expert in Feng Shui can assist in setting up your space to encourage luck and prosperity. This art involves using the Bagua map – an abstract grid that represents nine areas of life:
Place the Front Door
Your front door is one of the first impressions people have of your home and should be carefully considered when making selections. It represents who you are to the world.
Since your entrance hall can serve as the gateway for positive energy to enter, it is imperative that it remains clean and uncluttered.
Clutter in your entryway can create barriers between visitors and your home and can also cause stagnation. Therefore, remove shoes and bags that accumulate, as well as anything that makes opening the door difficult.
Place the Heart Chakra
The heart chakra (anahata) is at the core of love, kindness and compassion; as well as being an essential place of balance and connection.
An imbalanced heart chakra can result in negative emotions like anger, grief, hatred, isolation and jealousy.
Chakra-balancing exercises and meditations can help bring the chakra back into balance. Affirmations can also be used to promote positive energy and foster healing.
Place the Water Chest
Feng shui considers the water chest one of the foremost symbols of wealth. Although not recommended in your bedroom, if you have a home office it makes an ideal storage solution for documents and electronic devices.
Small water objects like fountains and aquariums can serve as symbols of prosperity if placed strategically. To maintain optimal financial growth, keep them clean as stagnant water may impede financial progress.
Place the Fire Element
Feng Shui uses fire as an element to symbolize energy, passion, creativity and warmth – making it one of the most dynamic pieces in decorating your home with Feng Shui and adding some excitement! When combined with other Feng Shui elements like earth or metal elements it creates a beautiful interior environment bursting with vibrant energy that exudes warmth.
Fire elements are represented by red and bright orange tones, triangle shapes, lighting fixtures and wooden furnishings; adding these items can further emphasize this element in your home.
Place the Earth Element
The earth element symbolizes stability, nourishment and strength – qualities which should be present in any home when seeking peace or reinforcing creative spark. When seeking inner calmness or strengthening creative fire in your life, look to earthy elements to bring balance.
Use neutral colors such as soft yellows, beige, dusky peach, ivory, and ecru to channel Earth energy. Add natural materials like clay, sand, and rocks for further effect.
Place the Kitchen
Kitchens are at the core of home life. Here, most meals are created and relationships formed.
Feng shui places an emphasis on positioning the kitchen to maximize positive energy, including selecting an effective bagua layout for the space.
By following these strategies, you can boost wealth and success within your home. In addition, improving the feng shui of your kitchen by clearing away clutter and throwing away broken or chipped pots and pans can greatly enhance its atmosphere and energy flow.
Place the Bedroom
Your bedroom should be designed in such a way as to promote balance and harmony. Feng Shui, an ancient Chinese practice that involves placing furniture and decor strategically so as to allow positive energy to circulate more freely, is one such approach to consider when designing the perfect space.
The bedroom should be located in the southern section of your home, preferably opposite of your front door, to bring good luck and prosperity into your life.
