This is the practice of feng shui which has gotten the attention of most people, particularly for use in their houses. Below are some useful feng shui home tips which you may take advantage of to create your house full of this positive “chi”.
Applying feng shui basics in the home need not be complicated. There are some ways in which this ancient practice can be used to make the house flow with positive energy or chi. Here are some of the basic feng shui practices which you will need to understand and can easily apply to make your home in addition to your life full of positive chi.
1. Make your entryway entrancing
The entryway is regarded as the mouth of chi where all your opportunities arrive in. It is also the place you input. Make it inspirational and it will make your heart sing each time you come home. Add an original door mat, greeters such as colorful pots of flowers on the sides of the door, paint the door the color you love, clean out the cob webs, replace broken bulbs and make it seem like you are proud to reside there. This is the first impression others get of who you are and everything you need to give, be certain that you are sending the information you want! I loved this top photograph of an apartment I walked by yesterday what a joyful time you would have walking up to your front door.
2. Organize your crucial pieces of furniture at the empowered position
Where you can see the entry from where you’re sitting or lying but are not in direct alignment with the open door. The mattress, desk, and location in which you spend time reading or watching TV should always be in this position. Otherwise, you’ll be spending the majority of your time feeling dis empowered. This reflex comes in the reptilian brain and you will never feel truly comfortable if you can’t see what is going on in the room.
3. Hazard-proof your home by eliminating punishing furniture
Whatever you bump your head , stub your toe or bruise your shins on is dangerous. The message to the reptilian mind is that home isn’t a safe place to be. Replace sharp-edged furniture together with those that have rounded edges and remove from sight anything.
4. Clutter Clear
This is a big thing! Feng Shui boosts that we are energetically linked to everything we own. Having an overwhelming amount of things to deal with sucks our energy and brings us down. Have you ever said… wow I feel so much better now that my house is a disaster area? Our homes are a metaphor for our lives and will always signify how in or out of balance we are. Learn how to downsize, purchase less and become conscious of this foot print you are leaving on the earth.
5. Replace or fix anything That’s broken, chipped, stained, rotting or in any Sort of disrepair
Maintenance for your home the way you care for yourself. Often if we’re not caring for ourselves, our homes reflect that as well. They’re a mirror into our inner and outer worlds and should we pay attention will give us profound clues to where our lives are! Mold is also quite toxic and has to be dealt with immediately in the house.
6. Move furniture you spend time on from beams or ceiling fans
Ceiling fans register to the reptilian brain as spinning knives overhead, and beams as a significant object about to fall on us. Notably move beds, desks and preferred chairs away from underneath these, or remove the fans all-together (substitute with more demanding looking blades) and protect the beams over beds with cloth. Feng Shui addresses the delicate things in our environment and the belief which they energetically influence us a great deal due to the amount of time we spend there. Think about the analogy of water dripping on a rock… over time that the hole is created where the stone once was.
7. Live with what you love
Eliminate anything you feel bound to keep for what ever reason. Update your house to reflect who you are now not that you was. Honor who you are and give yourself permission to surround yourself with things that inspire you and use the things you love rather than saving them for your guests confirming that you’re the most important person here!
8. Bring Nature
We come in 100,000 generations of ancestors who lived in the natural world. Nature realigns our power field and causes us to feel whole. For that reason, it could make sense that our houses will make us really feel at home when we deliver character in.
9. Update your color scheme to reflect your current taste and Fashion
Color has a massive impact on us. We actually need to surround ourselves with certain colors at certain stages in our lives. Focus on how you’re reacting to colors and also the ones which you need to surround yourself with today to feel nurtured, happy and motivated.
10. Produce the right Quantity of activity and rest depending on the usage of this space
Bedrooms are passive spaces and house offices busy spaces. It just make sense that creating an active Feng Shui bedroom is not going to encourage getting a good night’s sleep and a overly relaxing house office will make you want to have a rest rather than getting things done. This is called the concept of Yin and Yang which teaches how to create a balanced home that will support everyone who lives there and the activities that have to be performed in the best way possible.
