What is Feng Shui really all about?
Feng Shui (which is pronounced ‘Fung Shway’) is an ancient Chinese practice that has been around for thousands of years and involves art and science. The practice relies on the laws of heaven and earth to help people balance their energies or ‘Chi’ within a space, help them become and/or stay healthy and to receive good fortune. The word ‘Feng’ means wind and ‘Shui’ means water. So many local Chinese people place wind that is gentle and water that is clear in one setting to represent good health and harvest.
All areas of your life that you can incorporate with Feng Shui contain energy which in turn can help you to have a healthy and happy home. The atmosphere in your home will change for the better and visitors to your home will also sense the change.
Getting Started With Feng Shui
You need to get familiar with certain areas of your home. The more you are aware about what the areas are comprised of, the more success you will have in incorporating those areas with the principles of Feng Shui. You will then be able to transfer this to other areas of your life, including your relationships with family members and friends. You can enhance this by having a connection to your home.
Examine different areas and determine which parts do not line up with the Feng Shui principles. These areas are devoid of energy and will eventually have a detrimental effect on your life.
Removing clutter from your home should be the first thing you do as this will provide positive and fresh energy and your home will also be healthier as a result. Clutter represents confusion and indecisiveness which can prove to be a negative thing. Once the clutter is gone, you will have a sense of relief and peace of mind. Don’t get despondent if the work takes a long time to get done – just concentrate on one room at a time. Create a list of things to do and cross them off as you complete each task or assignment. The job will get done eventually!
Having positive relationships can also provide you with more energy and there are ways you can incorporate Feng Shui into your home that can help you keep your relationships fresh and positive.
If you have enough room, move your furniture around to another angle or another wall. Don’t keep any furniture such as a couch, bed, table or chairs in the same format every year as it starts to become monotonous. Moving your furniture around can help provide more energy in that area.
Whatever area of your house it is, focus on providing additional energy that is positive. You can do that by having fresh fruits, fresh flowers, or anything that is fresh and stands out. Your bedrooms, bathrooms, and closets should be clutter-free. They should be areas that people wouldn’t mind looking at if you were showing your house to someone.
Having a television in your bedroom is not necessarily a good idea. It can be a distraction from your actual purpose. Have pictures of you and your loved ones in a positive format and listen to music that is relaxing and soothes the soul. Certain types of music can provide great energy in the right environment.
As you can see all the steps above are simple and easy steps to take, but with maximum results. Living and creating a life of peace doesn’t have to be in the far distant future. Just by adding the practice of Feng Shui into your life and home can give you a whole new lease of life.
