What is Feng Shui and What is its purpose?


The word Feng Shui translates into “wind” and “ water”. Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art that has been studied and practiced for over 6000 years.


It uses colors, charms, and furniture placement to shift the energy and life force or “Chi”, in your home to create more balance and harmony, and welcome in an abundance of all the good things life has to offer.



Simple Feng Shui tips you can start today



Clear out the clutter


It doesn’t take a Feng Shui expert to realize that the clutter in your home affects your mood and energy.


Simply walk through your front door. What are you greeted by? 20 pairs of shoes scattered about? Coats? Bills and junk mail?


How does that make you feel?


I know how I feel when I let my house go for a few days. The site of clutter causes me to feel instant anxiety! A heaviness. Like I can’t relax or enjoy my space until I fix it.


Here’s a quick rundown of areas that could use some attention:



Declutter to invite in abundance

Bills, junk mail, magazines (these are not the first things you should be seeing)

50 jackets when you only wear 1


Bathroom:


Old makeup/cosmetics

Shampoo bottles

Old torn towels

Clothes on the floor


Kitchen:


Junk drawer( you never use 90% of it)

Utensil drawer ( 20 soup ladles! Why?)

Chipped/broken glassware

Old food/can goods

Organize Refrigerator(keep new fresh food stocked and accessible

Clear junk off top of refrigerator

Keep kitchen/dining room table free of clutter


Bedroom:


Get rid of any clothes you haven’t worn in over 3 months(No, you won’t wear it someday)

Clean off the bedside table ( water bottles, books, hair clips…)

Laundry baskets, lotion bottles, jewelry…all need to have a place


Living room:


Throw away old magazines

Movies/dvd’s

Toys

Clean under the sofa/sofa cushions

Clear off tables/flat surfaces


Porches and yard:


Out of season decor

Brooms, rakes, garden tools

Bikes, balls, toys

Trash, bottles, boxes, paper



Give your space a good cleaning


Now that you’ve spent time decluttering and creating space, it's time to give

everything a good cleaning.


Start at the top, and work your way down. In other words, ceiling to floor.



Areas to focus on:


Wipe down walls

Ceiling fans

Over the doorways and windows

Top of the refrigerator

Wash windows ( considered the eyes

of the home in Feng Shui) inside and out

to let sunlight in.

Clean stove and oven inside and out. Be sure to wipe off the burners

Vacuum rugs and sweep and mop floors

Under beds and couch cushions

All flat surfaces ( tables, countertops, tv stands, book shelves)

Clean sinks and toilets ( always pay special attention to bathrooms and the kitchen)

Sweep porches

Wipe down doors and door handles



Repair or throw away anything broken:


Everything is energy. Just like you have energy and a life force flowing through you, so does everything that occupies your home.


You want fresh, light, high vibe energy flowing through in order to invite more of that high vibe energy in.

Pictures/frames

Chipped dishes, vases

Light fixtures

Dead plants

Doorbell

Burned out lightbulbs




Scan your space

Look around and take note of what’s left, and how those things make you feel.

If there's anything left that you don't ABSOLUTELY LOVE, get rid of it.


Your space should be filled with ONLY items that bring you happiness, joy,

and gratitude.


Everything else is just weighing you down.



Infuse your space with Love and gratitude


Light some candles

Sage your space to remove any negative energy

Open windows and let in fresh air

Bring in fresh plants and flowers

Make your bed

Incorporate feng shui elements


Good Feng Shui is all about creating balance and harmony in your home and your life.


Yin-yang is the balance of dark and light. The balance of feminine and masculine.


The elements that we are about to discuss are, fire, earth, metal, water, and wood.

Each of these elements bring a different energy into your home.



Fire - A power element that represents passion, action, and fame


Incorporate: candles, fire, the color red, and electronics to attract success


Make sure you don’t bring in too much of the fire element without maintaining

balance.

Too much of this element can have the occupants of the home feeling anxious,

irritated, and on edge.



Earth - Earth elements are associated with grounding, stability, and security.


Incorporate: Brown and cream colors. Neutrals. Crystals. Pottery and ceramics.



Metal - Element that brings focus and clarity. It can help you in wealth, love,

luck, and health


Incorporate: gold and silver tones. Artwork, throws, couch pillows. Metal elements and shiny surfaces.



Water - Associated with movement, prosperity, abundance, and the flow of

emotions.


Incorporate: Soothing water images, the color blue, mirrors, curved objects, crystal,

and glass objects.


Choose a calming lake over a tidal wave.



Wood - Symbolizes growth, expansion, new life, health.


Incorporate: Plants, flowers, nature scenes and the color green.


Avoid artificial plants as they represent stagnation.


This is just a brief rundown of how to incorporate the 5 elements to bring in

balance and harmony.

A few other Feng Shui basics…


Front door/ entryway


Make sure you have a clean, clear entryway


Paint your front door a vibrant color


Add plants outside the door and in the entryway


No mirror directly in line with the front door ( abundance will shoot right back out

the way it came in.)



If it’s broken, fix it


Leaky faucets, doors that squeak, holes in clothing, socks without matches, drawers that stick or won’t close.

These are all examples of things that are broken , therefore, you carry brokenness within you.


You are not broken. There is nothing wrong with you.


You are worthy of things that help your life flow smoothly and effortlessly in an ever

expanding direction. Like matching socks for God’s sake!


If it’s open, close it. If it’s out, put it away.


Cupboard doors. The toilet seat( Feng Shui experts like Marie Diamond,

liken it to flushing the prosperity right down the drain, when you flush the

toilet with the lid up.)

Put the cap back on the toothpaste…and put it away.


Make your bed. Put your pajamas away rather than leave them thrown on your bed.


I think you get the picture.


Watch how your life starts flowing in a new positive direction!

Momentum is building…



Keep a clear pathway


All obstacles should be removed to keep a clear path to allow energy to flow.

Keep stairways clear of all items.

Think about it like clearing the energetic blocks in your life. Let things be easy.




Put your bed/desk in the command position


In other words, make sure that your bed and desk are facing the entryway to the

room.

Not in direct alignment with it though.




Bring in plants


Plants bring life to your home.


Place around your home, paying special attention to dark corners and areas where

The energy feels stagnant.

Add a little color


Repaint dingy, dirty walls to freshen up and add new life to the space.

Remember your foundation


The basement is the foundation of your home. Don’t let it be a dumping ground

Keep it as clean and dry as possible.


Flowing Water


Use fountains and water elements near the entrance of your home to welcome in

more abundance.

Never use fountains in the bedroom.



Keep electronics out of the bedroom


They are not good for promoting a restful sleep.



Solo images


If you are looking to attract-love/partnership into your life, steer

clear of solo images and objects.


Think doubles of everything.


2 chairs in your seating area,

2 nightstands beside your bed,

artwork with couples instead of just 1 of something.
