Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art of optimizing your energetic energy. Sometimes, it can be a little confusing! But clearing the energy in your home is a cheap and easy way to make your home feel more spacious and beautiful.
Here are out 12 favorite easy ways to improve the Feng Shui in your home!
- See the door from where you sit
Well-known in Feng Shui as the “command position,” your energy feels calm and relaxed when you are able to see the door from your position, whether it’s the kitchen table, your bed, or desk. If it’s impossible to move your furniture that way, try using mirrors!
An inexpensive and beautiful way to improve the energy in your home. There’s a reason they’re all over health spas!
- Add warm colors to mechanical spaces
If your desk or workspace feels cold and impersonal, try putting something red, yellow or orange in your eyeline. This will give a warm energy to the space, which will help you feel more relaxed and at ease.
- Keep entryway clean and welcoming
Your entryway is often overlooked when you’re cleaning or decorating your home. But it is so important! It is how energy enters your home. SO make sure it is clean, well lit, and has a beautiful welcome mat.
- No electronics/workout equipment in bedroom
Keep your bedroom as a sacred space to rest and detoxify from all electronics—yes, even your cell phone! Invest in a cheap alarm clock, and we promise you will notice the difference in your life and energy.
- Toilet seat lid down
Water means wealth, and leaving the lid open means you are energetically allowing wealth to dissipate away from you. Keeping the lid down will improve your energy, not to mention it’s more sanitary!
Mirrors help create space and light in the home. You can find unique old ones at thrift stores, or cheap new ones for a great discount!
- Auspicious Symbols
Find beautiful representations of lucky symbols to place around your home. Examples from many cultures include dragons, pineapples, and horseshoes. It’s even better if you can find something that is personal to you!
- Clean windows
Windows are the eyes of your home, and they let the light in. Cleaning them regularly makes sure you are getting as much light, with its wonderful energy, as possible.
Decluttering is all the rage right now, but it’s been a principle of Feng Shui for decades. It can be hard going, but you can always try one drawer at a time! Don’t beat yourself up, no one is perfect!
Just as important as physical decluttering, is space clearing. You can do this by smudging with sage, palo santo, incense, or any custome herb bundle you like. For low-key, continuous space clearing, try diffusing with essential oils!
Plants! They bring wonderful energy into your home, as well as tremendous beauty. We personally feel like it would be almost impossible to have too many house plants—just make sure you take care of them, they’re easy enough!
We hope that these tips help you make your home the beautiful, energetically vibrant place we know it can be!
