Feng Shui is based on the thinking that what’s happening inside your home is a reflection of yourself and your life. In relation to your home, it’s about being aware of the items you place in your home, and ensuring there is a good flow of air and energy throughout the house – from decluttering to removing any items that are worn or broken.
This is a topic that we love exploring on many levels and will certainly uncover many of our favourite tips and tricks along the way. For now though, here are just three of the key components that demonstrate how the art of Feng Shui can affect your home:
When it comes to the number one enemy of Feng Shui, mess is it! Piles of chaos and clutter around the home may block positive energy from entering, overall weakening the strength of your home!
Examples – The biggest offender is the entry or hallway. Start there and work your way through the house.
When it comes to Feng Shui, the windows are considered the eyes of a home and the front door is believed to be the mouth. Therefore, it makes sense that in order to generate and encourage clarity, these two components of a home need to be maintained.
Examples – Ensure that all windows and doors are not broken and that they work sufficiently. E.g. they open, close and lock.
When it comes to Feng Shui, broken objects and items within the home are not ideal. According to the experts they are impediments to vitality. The key is to ensure you remove or repair any broken items, such as chipped plates or damaged clothes, etc.
Examples - Chipped plates, burned-out bulbs, broken clocks, clogged drains and wobbly chairs.
