Guest Post: Simple Feng Shui Steps for Good Feng Shui in Your Home

Posted on

The basic idea of Feng Shui is that your possessions, wellbeing, relationships and finances can be affected by the surrounding and the condition you live in. People have felt instant transformations in their health and wellbeing through Feng Shui which is why a lot of emphasis is being given to it in this day and age.

So if you were thinking about incorporating the principles of Feng Shui in your house then you don’t necessarily have to start off with really complex steps. You could just start with house basics and move your way up. So here are some simple steps to bring good Feng Shui in your house.

1.    Clear out clutter

Start off by the simplest step which is to clean up your space. Tidying up your space can actually motivate you to do more for your house in terms of home décor because it is the first step that you just can’t miss. This will instantly bring about positive energy in your house and you will be able to notice it.

2.    Make way for light and air

Air and light are two important elements in any house so it is important to let them in. By keeping the windows open and full spectrum lights you will be able to do that. Make use of air purifiers and mirrors to enhance air and light in your home. If you live in a relatively dark neighborhood with limited windows then mirrors can help in brightening up your space if you place them at the right angle.

3.    Fix squeaks

It is not uncommon for floors or door hinges to make squeaky sounds as they get old. Some people get so accustomed to the sound that they don’t even pay attention to it but squeaky noises almost feel like your floors or doors are letting out a cry which can have a bad effect on your mood.

4.    Use the front door

Plenty of people find it easier to park their car in the garage and use the backdoor. But the door that you take determines where Chi flows into your house from. But from a Feng Shui perspective you will miss out on good opportunities and positive energy if you keep on doing this. So it is better to at least use your front door some days of the week and eventually make a habit of it.

5.    Keep the bathroom door closed

Bathrooms are areas of concern for a lot of people because water is directly related to wealth in Feng Shui and water being wasted means wealth flushing away. While water comes back after being drained, you need to be safe anyway so to do that keep your toilet seat cover down and bathroom door closed.

6.    Keep the television in your bedroom covered

It’s a common norm these days to keep televisions in rooms and a lot of people do that, which is fine as long as you keep the television covered when you’re not using it because the active energy associated with it can disrupt your sleep.
