Some Feng Shui Tips
Here are some helpful tips that can make life flow more smoothly in your home and workplace:
'Less is More' is an important principle.
Especially in the West, we tend to collect much more than we need. Our homes are full and then many people have storage rentals as well. As every object exerts an influence on the mind, we cannot enjoy harmonious 'Qi' if there is just too much stuff crowding our floors, shelves, eyes and minds.
What is beautiful emits ‘Sheng Qi’, or good energy. Being conscious of creating beauty and harmony--lack of clutter being a key element--makes for good Feng Shui.
Clutter and Cleanliness
Oversized furniture and garbage can block the smooth flow of Qi in a house. In a business this can be messy piles of paperwork, piles of boxes, crowded inventory etc.
A place has to be clean and tidy to enjoy good Feng Shui. Precise arrangement is not necessary, as an active area will have a certain amount of random placement.
Design and how things look and feel are at the center of how we experience life
Look at the Images
Look at the images in your home or workplace as if you were analyzing a dream. Each image can be like a metaphor. Does the metaphor support what you want or hinder it? What would the images tell you about the people living with them? Remembering that every object exerts an influence on the mind, decide if what you see is uplifting or holding you in a negative pattern.
If possible, it is best to have a room, or an area in a room dedicated as sacred space. The amount of the good energy found in homes that have an activated sacred space is quite tangible - however that may look and feel to you- compared to those without one. This small change can make a positive difference in how life unfolds for you.
People think Feng Shui is about furniture placement, arrangements and colors; in fact it is about so much more —
It is about Energy and how to direct that force for your benefit.
Bedroom Feng Shui
As we spend about a third of our life sleeping, the energy where we sleep is of paramount importance. We are completely open to and affected by the energy in the bedroom as we sleep.
If there is one room that would most benefit from good Feng Shui, it would be the bedroom!
Changing your bedroom to have good Feng Shui can change your life!
Please note the importance of a clean, clear, clutter free, beautiful and organized entry. Given a choice, a meandering path to the front door is best.
The entrance ~ the 'Qi mouth' of the house, is a crucial area of the house to have good Feng Shui as the energy coming in from there affects the entire house.
