Feng Shui is all about the energy of your home, and ways in which you can make it feel like a nicer place. Every home can be beautiful and Feng Shui is a natural and cost effective way of making the most out of your space; so where are good places to start?
The outside of your home is very important for good Feng Shui inside. If there is low or aggressive energy on the exterior then it will be difficult for positive energy to penetrate the interior. Think about where your house is situated and what surrounds it. Do you have a front garden or yard? Does your home go straight onto a street? How can you make this a more calming, serene place for good energy to pass through? Adding a water feature or some lush plant life is always a good idea, although simple things like repainting windowsills and attending to cracking brickwork or wooden fences could be an easy enough way to improve your outside energy. http://www.ehow.com has some great tips on designing a Feng Shui garden.
Good Feng Shui inside your home centres around the main rooms of energy and activity in your home and these are the kitchen, the bedroom and the bathroom. Furniture placement can have a big impact in these areas; positive energy needs to be able to travel from these rooms throughout your home and circulate, so having any furniture blocking doorways or light can be harmful to this. The type of furniture in your home can also have an impact; too many patterns can become oppressive and too much clashing furniture will not give the rooms’ good harmony. The furniture in your home should fit together and match its surroundings, so everything is in balance. You do not have to buy new furniture to achieve this, think of common features you could add to each room to make the energy flow better.
To create good Feng Shui means creating peace and harmony inside your home and light and sound are two factors which cannot be overlooked in attempting this. Letting as much natural light into your home as possible is a necessity, as sunlight makes people happy and feel healthy, and having lights tailored to the needs of your home will be helpful too – visit www.downlights.co.uk to get started on picking these, and concentrate on brightness and depth of light. Adding soothing sounds like water features too can help add to the Feng Shui of your home, especially if they are in a position where the sound, and therefore the energy, can be carried through to a few different rooms.
Improving the Feng Shui in your home is easy and straightforward and will provide something of a spiritual energy de-clutter; you’ll be amazed at how different you feel when you’ve done it!
