Everyone appreciates the benefits of beautiful and comfortable living environments. Feng Shui not only affects your level of comfort, it also affects your physical and mental health, your relationships, and your worldly success. Score!
So what is Feng Shui?
Feng Shui is a Chinese system for positioning a building and the objects within a building in a way that is thought to agree with spiritual forces and to bring health and happiness. It is often known as the Art of Placement.
It is composed of two Chinese words: feng(wind) and shui(water). Both are basic elements that humans need to survive. Wind-or air-to breathe and water to hydrate. Without these we would not live. With them we are said to thrive.
So. Let’s dive into some tips for making every room in your house feel calm and happy! Below is a little road map.
You will start by standing inside of your home at your entry with your back to the door and look straight forward. The part of your home in the front right corner is Friends & Travel sector. The far left corner is the Money sector. Following?
WEALTH & ABUNDANCE: This is a great spot to put fresh flowers, keep cash, or a valuable treasure. (Just make sure it’s high enough that your kids aren’t spending that money on the ice cream truck)
FAME: This is where you want to put your diploma, your top producer awards, sports awards, and any good luck symbols that you may have collected along the way.
RELATIONSHIPS & MARRIAGE: You know what they say about doves?! This is the spot that you want to bring in a pair of something. Whether it be a pair of matching pillows or chairs, some super sweet bookends, or a pair of paintings to hang on the wall.
CHILDREN & CREATIVITY: This is the perfect location for all craft projects, bulletin boards, and kids toys. If you don’t have children, a fun wallpaper or painting will do the trick. Let your inner child OUT!
HELPFUL PEOPLE (AKA FRIENDS) & TRAVEL: This is the perfect place to display your photos with your friends, of your travels, and any cool suveniors that you brought home to remind you of where life has taken you.
CAREER: You want to this area to be BRIGHT. Just like your future. (See what we did there). You also want to put something in this space that relates to your passion. Frames quotes that speak to you are also never a bad idea.
KNOWLEDGE & SPIRITUALITY: This is an intimate spot. Perfect for conversation, reading, or meditating. Put some large, comfy poufs on the floor and an ‘oh-so-soft’ rug and you are in business!
FAMILY & PAST: If there is one spot in your home that you need to keep clean, they say that this is the one. It’s also the perfect place to hang all of your family photos!
Once you have done the whole house, then you get to do each room! (You can do it!) If there is more than one door in any particular room, use its main entrance as your directional.
Your life will be overflowing with with health, happiness, and wealth before you know it. Now. Go get your Feng Shui on!
