Enhance Your Chi in Your Home with Good Feng Shui

Have you ever stepped into a home that seems to just radiate positivity?


How often do you feel like your life is off-balance?


With anxiety and burnout, we're all looking to restore a bit of equilibrium.

Well, this could be achieved through feng shui techniques. Feng shui is an ancient Chinese philosophy rooted in Taoism, designed to harmonize us with the natural elements of fire, water, earth, metal, and wood!


The words 'feng' and 'shui' mean 'wind' and 'water', and together they emphasize the harmony of energy and calmness. It's about connecting ourselves to the environment around us and reaping the benefits of good energy from mindful living spaces.


By applying the principles of Feng Shui simply, you can enhance your chi and bring harmony into your home - so why not give it a go?




Position major furniture pieces in a commanding position.

A top principle of feng shui is the placement of large pieces of furniture in a room’s ‘commanding position.’ For example, center a bed in a room for a commanding position – just not on the same wall at the door. Then, angle the piece of furniture so that it can see the entrance (mouth of chi).


Balance your bedroom.

After selecting a commanding position for your bed, ensure it is balanced. If possible, have at least two feet on either side of the bed with a headboard directly between. This position represents the space you have made for your partner. Finish by painting it a relaxing color.


Brighten your entryway.

The entryway of your home is the first impression you and your guests have when entering your space. Keep it free of clutter, swept, and add some extra lighting.


Clean your windows.

Your windows effectively bring the outdoors inside. They awaken a room by providing provide both light and fresh air.



Incorporate live plants.

Greenery and live plants embody life’s energy. Their presence improves the balance between nature and our homes, however, they are to be left out of the bedroom, as that room is a place of quiet and privacy.


Clear your path

If there are any obstacles that interrupt the pathway you regularly walk through your home, find a new place for them. You should be able to walk through your home without interruption.



De-clutter surfaces.

A major component of feng shui is the removal of distractions. Create space by putting away excess belongings.



Sent-sational.

Keeping your house smelling fresh is just as important as tidying it up.
