How to Incorporate Feng Shui at Christmas

I love the holiday season for many reasons: family and friends getting together, children’s faces lighting up at the sight of decorations and presents, and of course, incorporating Classical Feng Shui in and around the home. In the spirit of giving, I wanted to pass along a few ways you can decorate your home this holiday season while using Feng Shui to boost the energy in your home. After all, Feng Shui is all about moving and celebrating energies, and to awaken the energies of your home, one needs to activate them!

Feng Shui Tips for Christmas Decorations at Your Front Door

Your front entrance is the main point where energy flows into your home. The front doorway is where this vital energy, “Chi” or “Qi” flows into your home and life. To heighten the flow of energy into your home for Feng Shui at Christmas time, we recommend:

  • Decorating your front pathway and your doorway with Christmas lights to keep it bright and to increase the energy flow into your home. Not to mention, it’s festive and fun!
  • Wipe down or wash your front door with salt water.
  • Hang a wreath or bells on the doorknob. We recommend a wreath of pine branches and pine cones with gold and red details.
  • Tidy up your porch or walkway to remove clutter, snow, or ice. Pay special attention to old and dead plants in planters which should be removed as well.
  • Add a festive greeter such as a pot of greens, a waving Santa, or a wagon filled with faux presents to catch the eye, set the tone for your home, and uplift your visitors’ energy.
  • Lay a festive doormat.

When decorating the front entrance, we recommend these festive colours:

  • Red lights which symbolize prosperity and luck.
  • Green lights to symbolize stability, serenity, and healing.
  • Gold and silver tones to represent financial richness and good fortune.
  • Brown colours to represent grounding, self-care, and stability.
  • Blue colours to symbolize prosperity and abundance such as increased income and money flowing into the home.

These colours and Feng Shui tips can also work for other Christmas decorations in your home, including your Christmas tree.

Feng Shui Advice for Your Christmas Tree

Christmas decorating wouldn’t be complete without adorning your Christmas tree with festive decorations. The tree is a significant part of Christmas decor in most households.

Christmas tree

Before setting up your tree, think about different locations in your home that would allow your tree to accept Chi energy. At the same time, the Christmas tree should be placed in an area that doesn’t obstruct energy flow into the home. Ideally, you’ll want to place it in a room where it can be admired from the outside.  For example, beside a window, or where it can be seen the moment you walk into your home. If you’re single or live in a smaller apartment, you can still put up a small tree!  Remember it’s the intention that you place with it that counts.

When decorating your tree, I recommend the Classical Feng Shui practice of intention setting. Your Christmas tree can represent a powerful force in your home – you may set an intention for prosperity, happiness, peace, and so much more.  Think of what you’d like the tree to represent and what intention you’d like to set. Do you want to boost your overall quality of life, your financial status, or your family’s happiness? Once you’ve decided, think of your Christmas tree as your Tree of Life, your Tree of Prosperity, or your Tree of Happiness, and decorate it accordingly to boost that area of your family’s life. 

After you’ve set your intentions, it’s time to think about the Christmas ornaments we place on or around the tree:

  • To boost your quality of life, choose ornaments and figurines in calming colors such as green and brown.
  • To improve your financial status, place beautifully wrapped presents under the tree to represent abundance. Wrap them in red and gold wrapping paper since these colors symbolize financial richness, good fortune, and prosperity.
  • To increase your family’s happiness, you can include handmade ornaments by your children, souvenirs from your travels, etc. Anything that makes you happy!

With your decorations, you’ll also want to:

  • Make sure your tree lights are bright! Change the bulbs that are burnt out, or dim and dull.
  • Find lights that glow and sparkle so your tree comes alive with new energies. Fairy lights are perfect for this as they come with different settings that let you change the “look” of the tree depending on the energy of the day.
  • Discard faded and old decorations.
  • Decorate the tree with natural material as much as possible (i.e. cones, crystals) to bring in the nurturing earth and wood elements. This is a great option if you have an artificial tree.

Classical Feng Shui is easy to incorporate into your Christmas decorations with all the bright lights and decorations. Don’t forget that when you take down the tree at the end of December, it’s important to cleanse your space to renew the energy. This sacred space cleanse will help you start fresh in preparation for the Feng Shui New Year in February. Read next month’s blog to find out more about how to clear the energy from your space!.

What is a Feng Shui Wealth Vase and How to Make One?

image of a blue Feng Shui wealth vase

Feng Shui is commonly used to create Wealth, Prosperity, and attract Abundance by placing particular objects in a specific area within a Home or Business. For example, the Feng Shui Bagua or energy map has an area dedicated to Wealth and Prosperity in the Southeast section. Purple or Red elements in a home can also attract Wealth, as can certain plants (the Feng Shui Money Plant is a popular choice). Depending on the location of your front door, even its colour can help attract Wealth.

In this blog, we’ll look in particular at the Feng Shui Wealth Vase and its role in manifesting wealth and prosperity, as well as how you can make one for your home or business. If you need guidance and more information on creating and placing your vase for your Home, Business, and Real Estate based on your Personalized Direction, we invite you to book your 20-minute Discovery Call with Meena HERE.

What is a Feng Shui Wealth Vase?

An ancient Feng Shui secret used by Chinese royals and the wealthy, a Feng Shui Wealth Vase attracts Wealth, energy, Prosperity, and Abundance to one’s life, Business, and family. The vase contains tremendous Chi energy infused through various added ingredients and symbols. These symbols may include traditional representations of Wealth (money), stamps of Wealth and ease (clear round crystal balls), and items that represent Wealth (seeds that symbolize the prosperity of having plenty to eat). The “ping” sound that the vase makes means “Peace,” reflecting the Feng Shui belief that vases capture and store Auspicious and Beneficial energy.

Wealth vases are often given as gifts to temples and handed down from generation to generation. The vase can be found in the footprints of Buddha, making them a highly revered Feng Shui object.

Wealth Vase Rules

There are specific rules regarding the use of Wealth Vases:

  • Rule #1: Vases should be stored with respect in the Southeast section of the Home, Office, or Living room.
  • Rule #2: Choose wide vases at the bottom and narrow at the top. A classic ginger jar is often the preferred choice.
  • Rule #3: Select a vase that looks beautiful to you.
  • Rule #4: Vases should be porcelain, crystal, or earthenware.
  • Rule #5: Vases should only be filled 3/4 full (keeping room for Abundance to grow) and sealed with a fitted top.

Preparing Your Feng Shui Wealth Vase

Before placing anything in your vase, you want to clean it. Here’s how to do this:

  1. Set the incense holder on a table.
  2. Light a sandalwood incense cone or stick and place it in the holder.
  3. Turn the vase upside down and hold the opening over the incense.
  4. Fill the vase with smoke from the incense to clear out any stagnant chi energy.
  5. Once you feel the energy has been cleared, turn the vase upright and set it on the table. You can either let the incense continue to burn or snuff it out.

Ingredients to Place In Your Vase

When filling your vase, the following ingredients are suggested:

  • Semi-precious or precious stones
  • Three Chinese coins tied with a red ribbon signifying Wealth magnified ten times
  • A small laughing Buddha or Tibetan God of Wealth
  • Small round crystal balls signify a smooth life and lack of obstacles
  • Five kinds of seeds or grains in plastic bags
  • Pictures of wealthy people whom you admire (magazine photos are OK)
  • Gold ingots or bars. Faux gold objects are fine, but real gold is incredibly beneficial.
  • A tiny globe representing money coming from all over the world is placed in the envelope with the money from different countries.
  • Your wish. What is your desire? A yacht? A lucrative career? Include a picture of your heart’s dearest wish.

Assembling Your Feng Shui Wealth Vase

When adding the ingredients to your vase, you should do so with deliberate intent and respect for each item.

  1. Start by holding the vase’s neck between your hands, focusing your energy on the inside of the vase.
  2. Next, meditate on your intentions for creating your vase and imagine filling the vase with your desires, hopes, wishes, plans, and goals.
  3. You can begin filling it once you feel you’ve added your energy to the vase.

Sealing Your Feng Shui Wealth Vase

Once you have filled your vase, cover it with colourful cloth representing the five elements in colour. Finally, tie the fabric around the top of your vase to seal it shut.

Each year, on the anniversary of creating your vase, you can add one or two pieces of gold, coins, and paper money to symbolize adding to your Wealth. Be sure to replace the cloth, retie the ribbon, and set the vase back in its place of storage or display.

How to Invite Good Energy into your Home with Front Door Feng Shui

How to Invite Good Energy into your Home with Front Door Feng Shui

When it comes to attracting good Chi into your home, the front door is where it all starts. In Feng Shui, the front door is where positive energy enters and flows. So, if you’re coming home and not feeling a sense of calm or peace, then it may well be due to your entryway. This post talks about front door Feng Shui decoration, front door Feng Shui lighting and much more. Here are my top tips on Feng Shui rules for front doors.

Front Door Tips – Remove Clutter & Clean

As with other areas of your home, you should first start by decluttering and clearing the space leading up to your front door. According to Feng Shui principles, the front door of your house represents the mouth of the home. So, make sure it’s easy to access by keeping it clear of clutter, allowing for clear and smooth communication.

You want positive energy to enter and move throughout your house easily but if things are cluttering the path or front entrance, Chi won’t flow freely. Regularly clear the area, clean up the dead leaves, cobwebs and so on, especially in the winter when the focus isn’t so much on the home’s exterior. To achieve successful Feng Shui decor, make sure the trees or hanging decorations are not causing an obstruction. Also, ensure the house number is visible from the street. Think about it from the perspective of inviting a guest to your home. If they can’t easily find your home because the number isn’t visible, then how can you expect Chi to do the same?

Simple maintenance on the front door is important. First, give it a good clean. Make sure the windows and surfaces are clean. Check that the door handle isn’t loose. Next, sweep the porch and tuck away any unused items.

Unused Front Doors, Side Door and Garage access

People often use a side door or enter their home through the garage these days. If that’s the case within your home, exit your front door at least once a day, inviting positive energy in as you walk back inside. To invite Feng Shui to your front door, here are the steps to follow: step out of your front door, ground yourself for a few seconds, then come back inside. By doing this, you encourage good energy to come back with you.

Also, welcome your guests through the front door, which allows you to receive the positive Chi and any opportunities that it brings.

Curb Appeal

An attractive entrance will always be more inviting than one that’s been left unattended. I’m sure you’d feel the same way if you were to compare two doors and were choosing which one to walk up to! Place some front door plants (a pair is best for balance) to set the tone and create curb appeal.

While you want good energy to flow into your home, you don’t want it crashing in at light speed. Avoid using a straight walkway to the door to prevent this. Create the illusion of a meandering walkway by placing small shrubs or year-round green plants on the path. Adding fragrant flowers and plants also helps to welcome the positive Chi to your house.

Do you live on a T-junction, crossroads, or opposite a busy public space like a hospital, school or place of business? These areas can create forceful, harsh energy known as Sha Chi, also known as a ‘poison arrow’. This type of force tends to weaken your energy, leaving people feeling restless and unstable. Slow this energy down before entering your home by creating energetic barriers using plants, small shrubs or a fence. These create a cushion-like effect of the Sha Chi. These barriers have the bonus of reducing the harsh glare from car headlights and reduce the loud noise of traffic moving through the area. I can also suggest other remedies, such as to Feng Shui with crystals, to correct the energetic balance after reviewing your front door during a consultation. Different entrances and directions require specific remedies, so do speak to me if you’re unsure!

Front Door Lighting

Feng Shui front door lighting can be added to ensure a continual attraction of positive energy towards your home; and to make sure the area is well lit. Keep your lighting clean and change any burnt-out bulbs. Also, keep any glass in or around your front door spotless so that the area stays bright and fresh. If your entrance is at the side, add lighting and entry door plants to guide the Chi to the area. And you can encourage it further by choosing a wooden door, as this represents prosperity, growth and good health.

Feng Shui rules for the front door

Colour and decor are great ways to invite Chi into your home. Choose a colourful outdoor area rug or mat, but avoid anything with distinct religious writing or affirmations, as it’s disrespectful to step on those words.

You can also add a wreath to the front door, but avoid dried flowers and opt for silk ones instead. If there’s space, add a piece of vibrant artwork to your porch area.

Live in an apartment, town-home, or your office door is in a corridor where they all look the same? You can get creative with some pretty door decor to make your entrance look more inviting. I had one client recently who loves bling, so she added a little glitter to her peephole! Likewise, you could add bells to the handle so that every time the door opens and closes, the bells “excite” the Chi in the area and invites it in. Of course, these are just a few ideas, so feel free to come up with your own!

If you’d like me to view your entrance or answer your questions like what is the best Feng Shui front door colour or in Feng Shui, what direction should the front door face, do get in touch with me!

The Power of the New Moon

The New Moon in Feng Shui is compelling. It represents new beginnings. So, it’s the perfect time to start the process of manifesting your goals and desires on your vision board or complete it on the day of the new moon, ready to begin manifesting. There is no better time to start setting intentions.

Creating your Vision Board

Creating your vision board is a creative process, so it can take whatever form feels right to you. You can cut out pictures from magazines, print them off from the internet or even create a digital Feng Shui vision board if you prefer!

How you put it together is not as important as what the goals and intentions are that you set. With that in mind, try to be specific about what you want to achieve. You can focus on just a few areas of your life or have something for each area if you choose. But letting the Universe know what you are wanting and hoping to achieve and obtain should be clear.

Whatever you want to achieve, no desire is too great for the Feng Shui vision board.

Put yourself at the centre

Once each area of your Feng Shui vision board is complete, use the central space to put a picture of yourself or something of significance to you. This helps to ground your goals and intentions and allows you to focus on achieving them.

How to make a Vision Board

If you’ve never created a Feng Shui vision board before, taking part in my program may be the best start to help you through the process. The program is in development right now. It will guide you through the key steps to develop your vision board and set your intentions in the right way. It’ll also help you focus on what to attract in your life, decide which changes you need to make and define how your next year will look. Covering everything from the Bagua to placement, the program will help take your vision board to the next level of fruition.

How Realtors can Benefit from Working with a Feng Shui Consultant

As a Realtor, you have many responsibilities when it comes to helping your clients sell their homes or work through the process of buying a new one. You’re researching the market, looking for the perfect homes to show them, and planning open houses. That’s all before you even get started with closing a sale. So, it’s not surprising that the idea of Feng Shui is the farthest thing from your mind. But Feng Shui can be the difference between your clients’ home selling quickly or sitting on the market for weeks or even months. If you’ve found the perfect home for your clients and they’re not sure, having a Feng Shui Consultant assess it for them could help them make the right decision. Here’s how Realtors can benefit from working with a Feng Shui Consultant.

Why Work With A Feng Shui Consultant?

Yes, it’s true that you can research some of the facts about Feng Shui by doing a little search online. As no two homes are alike, each home should be assessed on a case by case basis. It’s not only about the physical features, like room locations and the front door position, but also because of the people living there. A Feng Shui Consultant will take a complete and detailed assessment of every aspect of the home to give a fair and honest Feng Shui appraisal.

As you know, the purchase of a home is a significant investment for most people. Your clients would appreciate a considered buy that will bring them prosperity and positive energy over an impulse one resulting in negative energy.

Selling A Home

Involving a Feng Shui Consultant in the sale of your clients’ property can result in a quick sale for a good price. Isn’t that what all homeowners want to achieve?

I start by doing a walkthrough of your client’s home, immediately removing any items that are cutting into the positive energy of the space. Even after this quick remedy, people often walk back into their homes and feel a sense of calm for reasons they can’t quite put their finger on. And it won’t just be the owners who will notice it. Potential buyers will pick up on it, too, and that’s a guaranteed way to get a sale in record time.

I use Classical Feng Shui rituals and remedies in the assessment and treatment of your clients’ homes. I assess and obtain the compass reading in the house’s facing direction, making recommendations about where to place things inside based on my findings. I then use a space clearing ritual to detach the current owner’s energy, allowing potential buyers to visualise themselves within the space. Once a person starts to do that, the promise of a sale is usually imminent!

I also provide affirmations and small rituals for the entire family currently living in the home to help release it, which encourages a quick sale. These rituals and remedies work. I’ve seen many homeowners, stuck with a home that wasn’t selling, go on to sell their property quickly and for an excellent price after working through this process with me.

That’s why many Interior Designers and Home Stagers will also choose to work with a Feng Shui Consultant. They know it will bring about speedy results for their clients selling their homes.

Buying A Home

I often assist in assessing homes on a client’s shortlist. I can help give them the energetic platform on which to base this most crucial decision.

As a Feng Shui Consultant, there are many things I’m looking at when I advise clients about some of the homes they have shortlisted. First of all, I base my search on the primary breadwinner’s personal trigram to find the best-suited home for them.

This includes home numbers and the bedroom location unique to them, and the main area where the family will spend most of their time. I spend time checking that the good numbers in the home fall in the key areas, such as the living room, the kitchen, bedroom, and home office. I also check that the less favorable numbers are in areas that are not used often, such as in the garage, laundry rooms, and bathrooms.

I spend time looking for any negative aspects that might affect Classical Feng Shui, such as the location of the kitchen, bathrooms, stairs or front door. It’s also important to consider the type of ceilings in the property and any shapes or colours that appear in the home.

Outside of the home itself, external factors can have a bearing on the home’s energy. I assess this by looking at where the home is located on the street and the front door’s placement, which is where positive Chi will enter the property.

Finally, I’ll even check the home’s history by looking at its previous owners to determine if there is stagnant energy that needs to be released there.

As you can see, there’s a lot more a Feng Shui Consultant can do to assist with the sale or purchase of a home for your clients. So if you’d like to find out more about working with me, do get in touch!

Feng Shui for Beginners: A Brief Guide to get you started

Feng Shui for Beginners: A Brief Guide to get you started

I often am asked to explain what Feng Shui is and how it is beneficial to my clients and their families. To help better understand the benefits of Feng Shui, I’ve put together this overview of Feng Shui for beginners. I’ve also included a few ways to apply Feng Shui principles and practices in your life easily.

What Does Feng Shui mean?

The ancient art of Feng Shui is a practice that has been around for more than 5000 years and one that is still incredibly relevant today. It can be applied at Home, in Business, and even in Real Estate.

Feng Shui for Beginners – Let’s start at the beginning. Feng Shui translates to “wind and water.” Pronounced fung shway, it’s the ancient Chinese art form of placement. Ultimately, what Feng Shui does is promote the flow and movement of good energy, or Chi (sometimes written as Qi), in the space that you occupy. It does this in several different ways (see below). But Feng Shui is not just about where you place your sofa or bed. Feng Shui works to create balance in all areas of your life, including Health, Wealth, Career and Relationships.

It might seem magical and mystical, but the effects of Feng Shui are proven to work. Studies show that using Feng Shui’s principles to rearrange your office or bedroom has resulted in greater productivity and better sleep patterns.

It’s important to note that there are different schools of Feng Shui. As a Classical Feng Shui Consultant, I focus on the more traditional principles of this art form.

Feng Shui for beginners

Feng Shui for Beginners

How Feng Shui works

The main aim of Feng Shui is to balance Chi using the five elements – Fire, Wood, Water, Metal and Earth – and colour schemes.

As a Feng Shui Consultant, I provide my clients with advice and guidance about arranging their space, placing these elements, and incorporating colour to promote energy flow.

You may be wondering why we often feel a direct connection to our Homes and possessions and why you can sense when changes have been made.

It’s because the same energy we have in our Homes is also inside of us.

In short, how we decorate and layout our Home can have an immediate and distinct effect on every aspect of our lives.

The Five Elements of Feng Shui

Where and how the five elements interact in your home will affect the flow of Chi and influence your wellbeing. Here is a quick overview of the characteristics and associations of each element:

Element #1: Fire

  • The element of heat, summer, and enthusiasm; nature at its peak of growth, and warmth in human relationships
  • Represented by the colour red and a pointed, triangled shape
  • Associated with dynamic, energetic, passionate, enterprising energies due to its upward motion

Element #2: Wood

  • The element of spring; the creative urge to achieve
  • Represented by the colour green and a rectangle shape
  • Associated with the capacity to look forward, plan and make decisions, hence growth and expansion

Element #3: Water

  • The ultimate yin; quiet, cold; representing the resting time of winter
  • Governs the balance between fear of being exploited and the desire to dominate
  • Represented by the colour black/ blue and a wave-like shape

Element #4: Metal

  • The force of gravity, the minerals within the earth, the patterns of the heavenly bodies and the powers of electrical conductivity and magnetism
  • Energy is consolidating and with inward movements, like a flower closing its petals
  • Represented by the colour white, gray and metallic shades and round shapes

Element #5: Earth

  • The element of harvest time, abundance, nourishment, fertility
  • Regarded as central to balance and the place where energy becomes downward in movement, a change of seasons
  • Represented by the colour yellow and a square shape, Earth’s motion is patient, reliable, logical, governed by service and duty to others.

To work out the best places for these elements in your home in Classical Feng Shui, creating an energy map of the space is essential. This map, called a Bagua, defines the eight areas of your home, with each area being responsible for influencing a particular area of your life.

The Bagua Areas of Feng Shui

The eight Bagua areas each relate to an area of your life and wellbeing. They also link to one of the five elements.

  • South – Fame and Reputation
  • Southwest – Love and Marriage
  • West – Children, Creativity and New Beginnings
  • Northwest – Helpful people and Travel
  • North – Career and Life’s Journey
  • Northeast – Knowledge, Wisdom and Meditation
  • East – Family and Community
  • Southeast – Wealth and Prosperity

The compass direction of your front door defines where each of these areas fall in your home (for example, if your door is facing west, your energy will focus on Children, Creativity, and New Beginnings). By discovering where each room of your home falls on the Bagua, you can place the elements accordingly and add supporting colour schemes to enhance the flow of Chi.

How Colour Schemes Affects Feng Shui

The use of colour in Feng Shui is significant, particularly when you realize that colour itself is how we perceive different light waves. Light is also energy, as with everything else. This means colour is also energy and has a significant effect on our wellbeing, just as the elements do. In Feng Shui, different colours carry different types of energy and interact with the five elements. Specific colours work best with each of the elements (for example, white with Metal and black for Water) and, in turn, the different Bagua areas based on the Compass calculation (the actual, magnetic and compass direction (course, bearing) by a given direction, magnetic declination and deviation).

Decluttering and Feng Shui

One of the critical aspects of Feng Shui is the placement and position of items around your Home. This is something that has been well popularised over the years. It’ll also be the first thing that most people will think of when learning about Feng Shui. Yes, it’s worth knowing certain things, but the quickest and most straightforward advice I could offer to a beginner is this – declutter your space. It’s the first, most crucial step you can take towards introducing good energy flow through your living space. When you’re ready to place the elements and colour schemes according to your Feng Shui study, the area will be prepared to receive the positive energy.

Living Room Feng Shui: Creating The Perfect Relaxation Space In Your Home

Living Room Feng Shui: Creating The Perfect Relaxation Space In Your Home

Your living room is likely one of the most well-used rooms in your home. It’s where you go to relax, to be with family and unwind from the stresses of your day. So, if the Feng Shui isn’t right in this room, you’re going to notice! Using good Feng Shui practices in your living room will elevate it from being just a space to sit together and watch TV into a warm, welcoming one that’ll feel like the heart of your home. Here are my top living room Feng Shui tips for creating the perfect relaxation space in your home.

Clear the clutter

In Feng Shui, clutter is one of the first things you should look at. All those extra items you have crowding your space aren’t letting the good Chi flow around as it should.

How well the good energy flows is important in your living room since it’s one of your home’s more public rooms. The flow of good Chi promotes a welcome space and invites good health to everyone in it.

Think about your furniture

No living room is complete without its furniture. A table or two, seating and storage are all expected to appear here. But your furniture choices can make a significant difference when it comes to Feng Shui.

Try to choose furniture with soft, rounded edges. Furniture with sharp corners can obstruct the flow of Chi, especially when they stick out into walkway areas.

When choosing a coffee table, opt for wood instead of glass. Glass is thought to be inauspicious and can intensify negative Chi energy.

Focus on seating

Above all else, you should ensure there’s enough seating for everyone in the home, with enough space to accommodate guests, too.

Place the back of your sofa against a solid wall, if you’re able, so that you can see the entryway into the room. This helps create a feeling of safety. Don’t place it in front of the window as it obstructs the positive Chi from entering in, as well as stopping you from enjoying your view. And avoid placing your sofa (or “floating” it) in the centre of the room of yin and yang energies.

Think about colours

Colours are used in Feng Shui to enhance or support particular areas in your life. So, it’s worth giving some consideration to the colours you use in your living room.

Keep the furniture in neutral colours as this creates a calming, grounding influence. It also works as a clean slate for decorating. If you want to use specific colours to aid certain parts of your life, incorporate these in a few added elements. Coloured cushions, vases and other decorative items can all add a touch of colour to your room. Keeping things neutral means it won’t interfere with annual Classical Feng Shui remedies, like blue for water, red for fire and so on.

When painting your walls, try to avoid dark colours. In Feng Shui, the sort of colours that invite the flow of good energy and balance are on the lighter end of the spectrum.

Let’s talk about your TV

In this modern world, it’s unusual to see a living room without a TV. But its reflective surface can act like a mirror when not in use, allowing it to reflect clutter, bringing about unwanted negative energy. I’d recommend keeping it enclosed in a cabinet or covered up when not in use if you’re able to.

Let there be light

Light is significant in Feng Shui. So your living room should be bright and open, allowing light to flow and fill the space. Do make sure you open your drapes and blinds in the morning to invite the positive energy in.

Floors and walls

I recommend placing an area rug, especially on a wooden floor, as this adds warmth to the room and helps ground the energy.

And for your walls, look at placing some well-chosen pieces of art. The artwork you choose is important. Try to select images that show happy places or smiling people and aren’t too bold or bright in colour. Your art should be pleasant and positive. I recommend natural scenes such as landscapes and try to steer away from abstract art. Too many abstract pieces can create a sense of confusion due to the chaotic nature of the patterns used.

Bring life to your living room

A living room bustling with life brings excellent positive energy into the space and helps to purify the air. So, consider having some healthy plants in the room. You don’t need to go too crazy here, though! Be selective and choose plants like Peace Lily, Bamboo, Succulents and Snake Plants. They all are thought to bring good energy into your home.
