The ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui involves the creation of a home that allows for the flow of positive energy and the generation of harmony within the space, in order to improve one’s happiness and overall well-being. So, if you have been feeling a bit down, waking up on the wrong side of the bed, or having been given the short end of the stick lately in life, this could possibly be due to some errors in your home design that may have been blocking the flow of positive energy into your home and hindering your potential for happiness and success.
The way one’s home is designed can significantly affect your overall happiness, as well as the happiness of all those living with you. Fostering a happy home can be very simple with the correct application of Feng Shui. Take a look at some easy Feng Shui tips you can do on your own to cultivate a happier home for you and your family.
1. Declutter your home
Having clutter in your home throws off the balance of energy and harmony in your home. With this, it can prevent the natural flow of positive Qi into the house and can hinder you from progressing in your life to achieve happiness and success. Creating a space clear of clutter can allow the smooth flow of positive energy into your home by clearing your space of any unnecessary things that may be hindering you from maximizing your potential and achieving full happiness.
2. Allow natural light to enter your home
Being exposed to natural light has been scientifically proven to improve one’s health, mood, sleep quality, and overall well-being. However, natural light is also a critical element in Feng Shui, as it is an energy source that manifests for the flow of positive energy into your home. Thus, designing your house to allow natural light to enter is essential in cultivating a happier home and life.
3. Embrace nature indoors
Indoor planting is more than just a trend that arose due to the lockdowns brought about by the pandemic, it is also something that can bring good Feng Shui into your home. Bringing nature into your home induces calmness that can help improve one’s health, productivity, and happiness, as it is a way to increase the flow of positive energy into your home. With nature being part of the five elements of Feng Shui, bringing nature indoors is a great way to embrace natural energy and encourages balance. Take up indoor planting as a hobby and embrace nature indoors to foster a happier home.
4. Create a welcoming entryway
The front door represents the mouth of Qi, the portal of energy that allows a positive flow of energy into the home. Thus, it is important to have a clear, bright, and inviting entryway in order to invite this positive light force of energy into your home, without any hindrances. This can be done by clearing the path to your front door, and choosing the best colors for the type of energy you want to produce, and make sure to ensure a good flow of natural light towards your entryway.
5. Ensure a balance of the five elements of Feng Shui in your home
The five elements of Feng Shui include, earth, wood, fire, water, and metal. You can incorporate these into your home physically and symbolically through your furniture, colors utilized for the house, or material used in your decorations. The goal is to create a balance between these elements and incorporate these elements into your home depending on the type of energy you would want to suppress or enhance. You will need the help of a competent Feng Shui Master for this. For example, a homeowner who is suffering from anxieties of family relations may want to identify those areas that can exacerbate the situation and bring a more harmonious energy into the home.
