Do you come home after work and still feel stressed in your house? Do you get cabin fever or an urge for change in your home? Maybe your home’s Feng Shui is off, and that is causing there to be negative energy in your home.
Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art form and philosophy of balance and harmony not only within a person, but between a person and their environment. Improving the Feng Shui of your home will not only help your home to look better, but it will also help you to feel better because there will be more positive energy in your home.
A home should be a safe haven, a peaceful retreat, a place you long for and enjoy being in. Therefore, we’ve compiled a list of ways to help you improve the positive energy in your home.
One of the worst roadblocks to a positive energy in your home is clutter. By organizing each room, making sure everything has a proper place (and is in its proper place), the Feng Shui of your home will increase. KonMari is one style of decluttering, going room by room, little by little, category by category. It focuses on keeping things that spark joy in your life, only. Consider going with minimalistic furniture pieces, such as Parson chairs instead of more elaborate and space hogging furnishings.
A very easy way to improve the energy in your home is by changing yourself and the other occupants in your home. Be clean and present yourself well. Speak and think only positive, loving thoughts. When your attitude changes, the atmosphere changes along with it. Include some positive sayings or inspirational quotes around your home. Use framed prints or vinyl wall stickers.
Sometimes the energy in your house can just be stale and needs to be freshened. An easy way to do that is to add some small changes. Paint the walls a different color.
Allow more light to come into the home. Use mirrors to open up and brighten the room. Rearrange your furniture. Rearrange your decorations.
Flooring is also an extremely important and often overlooked part of the home. Replace old rugs with a modern Ziegler area rug. These rugs are perfect to help create a more positive energy in your home because of how they are made. Modern Ziegler rugs are Persian style that are organically hand dyed cruelty-free wool. They are also hypoallergenic.
Bring Nature In
Buy some fresh plants to put in your house. Succulents are very popular right now and easy to care for. Bamboo is a perfect, traditional way to improve the Feng Shui in your home. Have landscape paintings on the wall. Have small decorative fountains for water flow.
Inviting Entry Way
Your entry way is the first thing you and your guests will see. If it looks uninviting, the whole Feng Shui of your home is ruined. Your entryway set the mood and energy for your entire home. Make sure it is clean and unobstructed. Have positive decorations, but remember, less is more. If the door is scratched or needs new paint, make sure to freshen it up.
If your home doesn’t flow, then the energy will be negative and you will feel trapped within your own home. Make sure there is a clear pathway in your home from room to room. Imagine if a river ran through your home—what pathway would you want it to take? Would it be able to continuously flow through your entire home without any obstacles? Rearrange your furniture to help create this flow. Also have a continual theme that flows between rooms—either a similar style or a matching color.
Balance is one of the most important aspects of Feng Shui and creating a positive energy for your home. There should be a balance of decorations, a balance of elements, and a balance of colors.
