Feng shui: the basics

POSTED ON 13 FEBRUARY 2017

Feng shui can be very complex and confusing, but it can also be easily incorporated into any home, creating a better quality of energy. So, just what is feng shui?

Feng shui was developed over 3,000 years ago in China. It teaches people how they can balance the energies in any space with the arrangement of objects. This could be a home, office or garden. In return it has been said that doing this can ensure good fortune and positively affect aspects of your life, including health, career and a heart filling love life.

To apply feng shui into your home you don’t need to be an expert or have a deep understanding of it. Firstly, you should identify which areas need the most help, so look into the rooms that you spend the least time in as those rooms tend to get neglected the most. Spaces such as this include the garage, the laundry room and the closet.

Remember to look at your house as a whole as, if a room has been  neglected, it will soon spread negative energy throughout your property.

As a beginner to incorporating feng shui into your home, you should first focus on improving the energy. Within a house the main entry point is very important. This is due to the fact that it absorbs the feng shui energy. You want this space to be strong and you can do this with a sturdy front door and a welcoming landing space. Simple ideas like a side table and lamp or a round table with a vase of flowers can help create positive energy. And if you have limited space, you can use a rug with vibrant colours and beautiful art. The use of colour is also important as it helps to determine and set a mood. Using the feng shui energy map, which is called the bagua, will help when looking at colours, shapes and materials.
