Apply These Feng Shui Tips Today

Aug 26, 2008
If you are interested in the ancient science and art of feng shui, you might be feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the conflicting advice to be found on the topic. A lot of people think you have to hire a feng shui professional to visit your home and give you a reading about where the positive energy is and what you should do with every room but this is in fact unnecessary in almost every case and there is a lot you can do yourself to improve the positive energy flow.

Anybody can encourage the positive energy to flow and discourage negative energy with a few easy feng shui tips that you can use today.

Feng Shui Tip #1

Probably the most basic and most important feng shui tip is to start de-cluttering. There is no more potent energy drainer in your home than excessive clutter. Old clothes that you know youll never wear again, broken appliances that you know youll never fix, all of these things are just reminders of unfinished projects and unmet goals, and are a drain on you mentally and emotionally.

You can also apply this feng shui tip on decluttering to larger items like car parts, furniture, and so on. For example, if you have more than two major pieces of furniture to sit on in your living room, ask yourself why. Or, if you have a garage full of odd car parts that you're not going to use, ask yourself why and they get rid of them.

If the answer to any of those questions is, Just in case, then you know that these things are clutter. Get rid of them.

Feng Shui Tip 2

Be aware of the color around you, in your home and your place of employment, and understand how color affects your mood and your emotional state. For example, a good feng shui tip when you want to increase your energy is to use bright, bold colors in rooms you use before you head out for your day, such as the kitchen or breakfast nook. Darker and warmer colors are good for when you want your mood to settle down, such as the living room or bedroom. Using warm colors of brown or green is good for these areas.

You need to be a bit careful when using the above feng shui tip. Some people think the entire room and everything in it needs to be this chosen color. Too much of one bright color can make you feel anxious and tense. Too much of a dark color can depress you and make you feel down.

It is often a good idea to stand in the entrance to the room and observe it. Be honest about the colors you can see in the room. Is it too much? You might want to think about using a neutral color with other colors as accents or toning down the overall shade.

The above are two very quick, simple feng shui tips to use in your own home, so that you can begin to feel the positive and powerful effect of positive energy, once you welcome it into your surroundings.
