Simple Feng Shui Tips to Improve Your Life
Many people these days are becoming more and more interested in the fascinating world of Feng Shui.
One of the really great things about the ancient art and science is that you can improve your life very easily by implementing a few things here and there.
Just a little bit of the right Feng Shui and you should notice the benefits quite quickly.
Here are a few simple Feng Shui tips you can use to improve your life:
• Front Door – Your front door sets the tone for the entire rest of the house. Even of your house is gorgeous and clean, if your front door is not properly taken care of, you can have problems. This is where the chi, or good energy, enters your home.
Freshen up your front door by giving it a good, new coat of paint. Keep plants and shrubs trimmed back so they don’t hinder the entryway, and keep clutter and shoe piles away from the entryway.
• Living Room – Arrange your furniture so that it is conducive to people being able to sit and enjoy each other’s’ company, without having to crane their necks or be blocked by visual impediments. When your furniture is harmonious – so too will your relationships be.
Keep sharp edges blocked or remove them, as this is not conducive to good Feng Shui practices and the sharp lines transmit negative energy.
• Dried Flowers – Many people have dried flower arrangements in their homes. They are attractive, but they are a big no-no in Feng Shui. It is very important not to have the energy of anything dead in the home. Dead flowers do not conduct the right kind of energy.
If you want flowers in your home (and they are excellent for Feng Shui), then get live flowers or potted flowers, preferably with round leaves. Make sure to get rid of them the moment they die, or you will be bringing harmful chi into your home.
• Mops and Brooms – Keep mops and brooms out of sight, so that they can’t be seen. It is also recommended that they be stored upside down. This may seem strange, but brooms and the like are a very powerful element in Feng Shui for both good and bad. You run the risk of sweeping out your good energy if you leave your brooms and mops out and cluttered.
• Mailbox – Paint your mailbox in a fun, lively color. This is an important Feng Shui element that will encourage increased money and business via the mail, as well as good news.
If you follow these steps, along with one of the basic tenets of Feng Shui which is clearing out clutter so the positive energy (chi) can flow properly, you may notice an amazing difference in your life and home.
