    Tips To Bring Positive Feng Shui To Your Home

    Most people consider home to be a place of safety, peace, and relaxation.  The feeling in your home is vital to your family’s overall sense of happiness.  You can take steps to work on your inner selves, and work to align your chakras, but your home will still have a major effect on the feng shui of your life as a whole.  

    The good news is that there are some ways you can take action to control the flow of energy in your home in hopes of creating the perfectly pleasing environment for the whole family to enjoy.  Take a moment to consider an ancient tradition of happiness, and learn a little about “Chi.” Here are some design tips for boosting your home’s Feng Shui.

    Understanding Chi

    The word Chi is used to describe the universal energy that surrounds us all.  Good Chi is represented by a loved one’s smile or the pleasant aromatic scents of your home.  The best way to understand the flow of Chi is to liken it to the flow of water.  

    Good Chi equals good feng shui, and good feng shui equals a happy home.  The free flow of energy in your home is directly related to the positive “vibes” your family and friends feel (or don’t feel) while residing in your home.

    Feng Shui for the outside

    If the outside of your home isn’t fully adjusted for a positive flow of Chi, then there’s no use in trying to manipulate the inside of your home for peace.  The bad vibes outside will strongly influence what occurs inside.

    The first thing you should do is to thoroughly assess the Chi around the outside of your home.  Invest in some landscaping to “spruce” up the place, and make sure there is a clean and clear path leading up to the front of your home.  

    Pay close attention to the entrance

    The front entrance of your home is where it all begins.  You don’t want to start off on a bad foot, so pay close attention to the feng shui of your entranceway.  

    Your home will absorb the energy let in through your front door.  The front door is referred to as the “Mouth of Chi.” Consider giving your door a fresh coat of paint, and add warm lighting to either side of the entry.  Balance is a crucial element for good feng shui.

    Enrich the flow inside your home

    Manipulating the flow of energy inside of your home to nurture positivity is a thorough job.  You must not leave out any part of your home.

    Closets, the garage, and even the laundry room must be considered when working to produce good Chi in your home.  Keep a tidy and free-flowing design to the inside of your house to encourage a centered feeling for the household.
