Incorporating the basics of feng shui into your home Posted On 22 January 2020

Feng shui can easily be incorporated into any home, creating a better quality of energy. So, just what is feng shui?

Developed over 3,000 years ago in China, Feng shui teaches people how they can balance the energies in any space with the arrangement of objects. This could be a home, office or garden. In return, it has been said that doing this can ensure good fortune and positively effect aspects of your life, including health, career and a heart filling love life.

To apply feng shui into your home you don’t need to be an expert or have a deep understanding of it. Firstly, you should identify which areas need the most help, so look into the rooms that you spend the least time in. Spaces such as this include the garage, the laundry room and the closet.

As a beginner to incorporating feng shui into your home, you should first focus on improving the energy. Within a house the main entry point is very important. This is due to the fact that it is said to absorb the feng shui energy. You want this space to be strong and you can do this with a sturdy front door and a welcoming landing space.

Simple ideas like a side table and lamp or a round table with a vase of flowers can also help create positive energy. And if you have limited space, you can use a rug with vibrant colours and beautiful art: the use of colour is also important as it helps to determine and set a mood. Use the feng shui energy map – called the bagua – to help when looking at colours, shapes and materials.

Top Tips

Ensure your rooms are clean and clutter free; this will help create a practical and organised space for your family

Allow as much natural light and air in as possible. You can do this with different levels of lighting, so install some mirrors, floor lamps and table lamps

The room arrangement must allow your family members and guests to feel at ease and relaxed, creating a breathing space for everyone and allowing a good flow of energy

Avoid any attacking energy. To do this you should ensure that no sharp edges or work surfaces are pointing at areas where you spend the majority of your time – this could be any seating or play areas.
