Feng Shui is a system for arranging your surroundings in harmony and balance with the natural world around you. Feng Shui helps make our homes healthier and more organized, which helps us improve our mood and well-being. These Feng Shui tips can potentially increase your home’s selling price.
- Slow Down the Energy Flow. Avoid a direct line-of-sight between the front door and the back door. Slow the chi down with a patterned rug on the floor, artwork on the walls, or even a round entry table.
- Keep Your House Clear of Clutter. An excessive amount of clutter stops us from having clarity of thought, and can weigh us down emotionally. Make sure that you have the correct organizational systems in place for everything in your life: from paying bills, to recycling, to having a designated spot for your keys. You’ll feel lighter, less frazzled, and more efficient.
- Keep the Path to the Front Door Clear. The front door is very important in feng shui, as its the main portal through which energy enters your home. Make sure the front door is clearly lit, well-marked, and the address visible. On the inside, you want to make sure you’re not walking directly into a wall – install a mirror if needed.
- Give Guests a Reason to Pause. You want to give you guests a reason to linger in the common area once they enter your front door. Slow down energy flowing into your home by adding a stair runner, or artwork that causes you to pause and reflect.
- Balance the Five Elements. The five elements—earth, wood, fire, water, and metal—can be present in your home either physically or symbolically. Look closely at the literal and symbolic elements that are showing up in your home, as they can be a cause of imbalance in your emotional life. The idea is to strike a nice balance between all five.
- Remove Negative Symbolism. Evaluate what challenges you are facing in life, and try to identify whether they’re symbolically showing up in your space. Remove the symbols, and replace them with items you want to attract.
- Maximize Natural Light. It should come as no surprise that natural light can make us feel happier and more positive. Be very mindful what the mirrors reflect – make sure they reflect more light, a serene view, or an expansive part of the room.
