What exactly is Feng Shui?
Feng shui is an ancient Chinese art form used to create greater health, wealth, and happiness. This improved wellness through feng shui is created by organizing an environment in a way that enhances the flow of life force, or chi. Chi is the life-giving energy that unites our body, mind, and spirit.
Through this art of placement, feng shui provides a space that allows chi to flow most naturally. There are many techniques for enhancing the energy flow in an environment; one way is through five elements – wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. In fact, feng shui literally translates to “wind and water.”
Use the following tips to see how this ancient practice can bring balance to your home environment and enhance your health and happiness!
Choose wooden bed frames as metal frames attract electromagnetic waves from technology and affect sleep cycles.
Clear out the clutter in your living space.
Get a great mattress that supports your body and allows for deep rest and restoration.
Keep your space soft with calming, yin colors like beige – don’t use bright or harsh tones.
Pay attention to the airflow in your living space. Put in fans for air and energy movement and plants for air purification.
Reserve your bedroom for sleeping and sex – no work or papers.
Tune out and unplug. Electromagnetic fields affect your sleep, so keep electronics (including televisions) out of your bedroom.
Always throw away dead flowers.
Keep candles in your bedroom to create a romantic ambiance.
Keep your bed linens clean, fresh, and crisp.
Meditate daily to clear your mind.
Put two roses next to your bed and visualize what they mean for you in terms of calling in love.
Sleep on one side of your bed and clear out a few dresser drawers to make space for your partner.
Money & Financial Stability
Make the entrance to your home beautiful. A first impression sets the tone. Your doorbell should work properly and the number on your home should be visible so abundance can find you.
Fix any leaks in your home as they represent financial leaks. Keeping your home stable will support your financial stability and growth.
Close your toilet lid when it’s not in use. Like leaks, the toilet represents flushing things away; you don’t want money to be one of those things. Keep the lid closed to keep your finances protected and attract more abundance.
Explore subconscious beliefs about money: Do you believe that money is scarce? Do you think that you have to work really hard to make ends meet?
Do you feel as though there’s not enough to go around? Replace those thoughts with a positive affirmation. For example: “Abundance comes easily to me through many different channels.”
Get creative by incorporating photographs or paintings of flowing water, running horses, or moving boats in your home as these images represent flow and abundance.
Keep your wallet organized to show that you respect money and spend it wisely. Try buying a brightly colored wallet in red, green, or purple tones as these colors are said to attract financial abundance.
Your stove represents abundance, so keep it clean and use all the burners equally. Utilizing each burner opens a variety of opportunities and financial channels.
