Today I’m having my first guest post visitor. I chose to have this post here since Feng Shui is something I’m interested in, and have read a few books on. I have spent numerous hours with a Feng Shui Bagua map to make my home more flowing with Feng Shui. Sometimes it can get confusing. So,when this post was suggested as a guest post, I liked it! Small things we can do bring Feng Shui into our homes, sounded great, so I chose to share this with you today. Hope you find it helpful!
This is a guest post from Michael Schnippering, founder of Feng Shui at Work. He is committed to the true art and science of Feng Shui. Over the years his Feng Shui practice has taken him to various parts of the United States, Germany, France, Spain, Colombia and Argentina. On Twitter: @fengshuiatwork
4 Easy Ways To Bring Feng Shui Into Your Home
One of the really great things about the art of Feng Shui is that a little goes a long way. The art and science of Feng Shui is all about improving good energy and countering bad energies. You can be a complete Feng Shui novice, and just by making a few simple changes, you can turn the energy in your home around so that positive things start happening and negative problems start being minimized or going away altogether.
All it takes is a good sense of intuition, and a little bit of knowledge. As you learn and grow, you can begin to incorporate more complex aspects of Feng Shui, but for starters, here are four easy ways you can bring Feng Shui into your home:
1. Clear Out Clutter – This is one of the most basic elements of Feng Shui, and everyone usually has some clutter in their homes. Cleaning out old junk and things that take up space free up space for the positive energies to circulate. This includes removing dead plants. You never want anything dead in your home, because that promotes bad energy.
2. Use Natural Light Where Possible – Natural light is good, healthy, and comes from the sun. It is far better than artificial light. Try to use natural light wherever possible in your home. Open blinds and drapes and let the light in. You can also install a skylight or two which can have a huge impact.
3. Bring in Life – This one is really easy, cost-effective, and will make a huge difference. You have plenty of options for how you want to do this, as well. Bring in potted plants, or fresh-cut flowers to your rooms. You can put these in the living room, dining, room, family room, or kitchen. In the kitchen, you can also display bowls of fruit or vegetables. This is an easy way to bring in good chi. You can even get really low maintenance plats like bamboo, which is also very lucky.
4. Avoid Sharp Angles – These are referred to as “poison arrows” in Feng Shui, and for good reason. The sharp angles, when pointed at you, can send deadly negative energy right to you in a concentrated line. Look around your home, and move, cover, or get rid of any sharp angles that are pointed at where you sit or sleep. You can easily move a plant or something soft and rounded in front of sharp lines.
These are just a few things that you can implement to bring Feng Shui into your home. They are very simple, and don’t cost a lot of money, but their benefits are tremendous. Try it in your home today and see how it works.
