Good energy starting at the entry of the home
If you are interested or have wondered how to start the whole Feng Shui lifestyle, it’s easier than you can imagine. Good energy always starts at the entry of your home! If you experience a lot of company going and coming into your home, it’s important to always maintain good energy from the beginning.
Practicing how to take good care of the Feng Shui of the front entry of your home can help you absorb the best energy nourishment. It helps the people living in the space experience a high level of well-being all around. Have a sage incense or room scent running right when people walk in. Paint with colors like yellow, orange, or sky blue to promote energy.
Harmony in the living room
Second to the entry door of the home is the living room. The living room is the place where most everyone gathers to congregate and converse about the high and lows of their days. It’s important to create good energy in the living room for that matter alone.
Check the bagua of the living room which is the Feng Shui map of your space that is connected to certain areas of tour life. Decorate your furniture according to the map. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to bring the power of your intention to your health, intimate relationships, money matters and more to the next level.
Sensual energy in the bedroom
The bedroom is the place where your rest and rejuvenation best occurs. To ensure your bedroom is Feng Shui ready it must be treated wisely. Keep harmful energies away from this room and only allow smart decision making in it. Calming music, sensual candles, and stress-relieving scents can help promote the best energy in your bedroom.
Unlike the other rooms in the house, you’ll want to keep your bedroom simple and organized. TVs are nice, but not necessary for Feng Shui. The bedroom is where you sleep, and it’s the room that will keep happy relationships intact and prosperous.
Promote health in the kitchen
Feng Shui in the kitchen is vital. Many people gather in the kitchen because that’s where food is prepared and food always brings people together. For the most part, there are energies in the kitchen that can’t be altered or control, and that’s just fine.
However, in the kitchen there are energies connected to wealth and abundance, and because of that people must be tuned in to catch them. If you have small kitchens beware of the clutter, because clutter can pose problems in your life, and harm the wealth and abundance energy that you deserve.
Productivity in the office
In many instances, people are privileged enough to work from home, and not have to deal with bad commutes to and from the office. Working from home in a Feng Shui style can really help you enjoy work and feel more productive.
Every home office is different and unique, depending on your profession the Feng Shui varies from space and energy. Nonetheless, every office can benefit from having plants that provide air purifying balance. With the proper placement of work essentials and wall art, you’ll be destined to feel the positive energy.
Although this may seem a little bizarre for those that don’t believe in Feng Shui, for many it’s a way of life. Each room can serve its purpose and bring positivity to the space it’s in. Even if you don’t believe, what’s the harm in doing things that can send positive energy your way?!
