Tips to Feng Shui Your Home

1 . Fix your squeaks

Does your entry door squeak or whine when you open or close it? The entry door is the first and last thing you encounter when coming or going from your home The sound is as if the door is crying and this can affect your mood and wellbeing Many people have become so accustomed to the sound that they dont even notice it Oil that door hinge and create more positive energy when you enter and leave your house Its also helpful to oil any other door hinges throughout the home but the entry door is the most important

2 . Use your front door

Many people live in homes where they drive up into the garage and use the back door to get in While this is very convenient from a Feng Shui perspective this may limit good energy and opportunities in your life because again the entry door represents how chi enters your home and life The easy Feng Shui fix? Start using the front door at least once week The more often the better! Just open and close it when you go get the mail or maybe to take walk Write it into your regular routine

3 . Where to place that Feng Shui fountain

Water represents wealth in Feng Shui A lot of people ask me where the best place to locate a fountain for Feng Shui is According to Feng Shui principles its advantageous to place a water element such as a fountain near the entry of your home It can be just inside or just outside but the most important part is that the water should be flowing towards the center of your home That means that the wealth has the opportunity to pour into your life!

4 . Plants above the kitchen cabinets

Take a look at your kitchen cabinets and check to see if they are built up the ceiling or a soffit It is good Feng Shui if there is no space above the kitchen upper cabinets This space above the kitchen cabinets attracts dust and stagnant energy The chi gets stuck there and encourages dead energy which may hold you back in your life If there is a space theres a Feng Shui adjustment for you! Place some lighting green plants (live or very realistic looking) or beautiful and loved objects in this location These objects bring life to this area and transforms the energy

5 . Keep that bathroom door closed

Many people get concerned about the bathroom when it comes to Feng Shui The idea is that the water goes out of the home here Since water is related to wealth we dont want our money being flushed away I have also been taught that water comes back in as its being drained but to be safe I recommend that you keep the toilet seat cover down and the bathroom door closed to reduce this effect

6 . Where is your bed located

In Feng Shui we use the commanding position to locate important furniture such as your bed The bed is arguably the most important piece of furniture to put in the commanding position because you spend many passive hours sleeping! To place your bed in the commanding position you want to be facing the door while not in line with the door while lying in bed Ideally you can be diagonally across the room from your bedroom door However I understand this is not always possible In that case find a mirror and place it so that you can see the door while lying in bed I suggest freestanding mirrors theyre easier to move around and get just right

7 . Cover up the TV in your bedroom

Most of us have televisions in our bedroom It happens If you have trouble sleeping it or even if you dont it is a good idea to cover the television when not in use The active energy of the television as well as the electronic aspect of it may be disruptive to the type of calming quiet energy more conducive to sleep and bedrooms My suggestion find a beautiful scarf or fabric and just toss it over the television

8 . Clean all windows

Its not quite time for spring cleaning but that does not mean you should have dirty windows for the next few months The windows symbolize your eyes to the world We want to be able to see and experience everything that the universe has to offer us Find some old newspaper grab a bottle of vinegar and water? and clean away the grime Open your eyes and brighten your space

9 . Do a space clearing

Last but not least do a space clearing Our homes and environments retain the energetic imprint of those that inhabit the spaces It is always good to just take a little time and burn off the old energy to welcome fresh and new chi My favorite methods of space clearing are the following: burn palo santo smudge with white sage or spraying natural orange essential oil with water Palo santo is light and great for everyday use White sage is heavier ? for the heavy duty space clearing And the orange oil is great if you also need something to uplift your mood Whatever you use make sure to imagine the space being filled with positive energy and your dreams for the future

10 . Make your entrywayentrancing

The entrywayis considered the mouth of chi where all of your opportunities come in It is also the placeyouenter Make it inspiring and it will make your heart sing every time you come home Add a fresh door matgreeters? such as colorful pots of flowers on the sides of the door paint the door the color you love clean the cob webs replace broken bulbs and make it look like you are proud to live there This is the first impression others get of who you are and what you have to offer make sure you are sending the message you want!I loved this top photo of an apartment I walked by yesterday what a happy time you would have walking up to your front door!SeeHow to Welcome Opportunities
