Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese practice that claims to gather energy forces and form harmony between an individual and their surroundings.
It is a belief widely used when moving into a new space or when improving the energy, also known as ‘chi’ of one’s current space.
As most people live hectic lifestyles, those who seek mindfulness would resort to Feng Shui to improve their mind, soul, body and the space in which they live.
Looking to boost the general ambience of your home? Here are three simple ways through which you can create good Feng Shui.
1. Keep the entrance bright and clear
In Feng Shui, the entrance of your home is where energy enters the space. It symbolises how energy enters your life too.
Hence, the entry of your home should be the first place to create good Feng Shui.
Remove any physical clutter such as shoes, socks, parcels or dirt that would make the entrance less inviting.
Instead of scattering them at the entrance, organise them neatly with shoe racks, key hooks, or storage bins.
Additionally, ensure the entrance is well-lit by having sufficient natural light or lighting.
This way, the entrance will look clearer and spacious, which will help to establish a space for energy to flow into the home smoothly.
2. Remove surrounding obstacles
Rethink the path you take within your home from the moment you wake up until bedtime.
Is there something that you consciously avoid bumping into after that one tripping accident, or even small issues like a cluttered closet that overwhelms you when choosing an outfit? These are obstacles that reduce efficiency in our daily lives.
Similarly, in Feng Shui, it is all about letting energy flow smoothly around the house to create perfect harmony.
Therefore, it is crucial to clear up any obstacles that may affect your life. Just like health symptoms from your body, if ignored, it may become a problem in the future.
3. Incorporate more greens in the house
In Feng Shui, plants symbolise life energy. Having plants in the house connects humans with nature, and brings vitality and freshness to the home.
For instance, in Chinese culture, just like the name, the money plant is believed to bring prosperity and wealth, so it is best to keep one at the entrance of the house.
Furthermore, having indoor plants can make the indoor air clean and fresh too. However, it is important to ensure that the plants are appropriate for your home and can thrive in the space given.
Chinese New Year is approaching and it’s the best timing to press reset for our homes! Though this year’s celebration will be a little different than the past, it should not stop us from making changes in the house to signal a fresh new start.
