Learning how to create Feng shui in your home is about balancing yin and yang energy. If the energy of your space needs some refreshing, read on to discover five uber-easy tips to get your abode’s good juju flowing.
Step One • Your Entry is Everything
The easiest way to create a welcoming entry is to place a clean welcome mat flanked by live potted plants on each side of the door. Additionally, the direction your front door faces will determine which color it should be painted.
Step Two • Bring Nature Inside
The flow of energy inside your home can be optimized with air-purifying plants. I know, it’s tough enough keeping your children alive, however, adding a few low maintenance succulents will eliminate stagnant energy.
Remember, live plants help clean the air, but faux plants and dried flowers collect dust and stunt the flow of positive energy. If you do nothing else today, kick those fake plants to the curb.
Step Three • Cha-Ching the Kitchen
Feng shui teaches that displaying fresh fruit in your kitchen recharges your wealth + health. Keeping a bowl of fresh clementines/lemons as your centerpiece will not only look great, it will keep you on top of your health game.
Step Four • Your Bedroom is a Sanctuary
Your sanctuary should include a bed, nightstands, lamps, a dresser, and zero clutter. Storing items beneath your bed is a no-no because it creates stagnant energy. It’s also a breeding ground for dust mites — yuck. The biggest feng shui mistake in the bedroom? Exercise equipment. Maybe you could think of a better form of exercise for this particular space. Can I get a bow-chicka-wow-wow?
Step Five • Honor Your Family
The best way to tell your family’s story is to display photos of them. Rather than purchasing expensive art, spend a Sunday with the fam’ thumbing through photos. Select your favorites to frame and create a gallery wall.
Your living and dining rooms are perfect venues to feature your offspring and generational black and whites. And they make the perfect conversation pieces during social gatherings.
Feng shui isn’t all about crystals and woo-woo. It’s about honoring your space and the precious people and pieces within it. By refreshing the spaces within your home, you’ll be thrilled to see how balanced and harmonious your life will become. It will create a much calmer environment for you, your partner, and your children, one that opens the door to an abundantly thriving lifestyle.
