Feng shui is a Chinese system of creating harmonious surroundings similar to Vaastu. The principle of Feng shui is that everything and everyone has a certain energy known as ‘chi’. The arrangement of the objects around us can affect the flow of energy in our living environment and in turn affect all aspects of our lives. So how do we use Feng shui to bring more positivity into our lives? Start small with these simple and easy ways:

CLEAR OUT THE CLUTTER

1
Take some time out to remove all the unnecessary things from your home so that energy can circulate. Anything that you do not like, do not use or makes you relive negative memories has to go. Do remember to clear out all the clutter from underneath your bed. Not only will it make your home more roomy, airy and positive but the process of throwing away the unnecessary can act as a cathartic experience.

REMOVE ELECTRONICS FROM YOUR BEDROOM

2
Bedroom is the place for intimacy, rest and rejuvenation. Keep it clear of electronic items like computers, TV sets and exercise equipment. Not only are these bad for your health due to high EMF’s, but they also disrupt your sleep and your love life. Use soothing colours in skin tones to promote best flow of energy in your bedroom.

GET INDOOR PLANTS

3
Growing indoor plants can bring a lot of positivity into your life while also purifying the air inside your home. A lucky bamboo plant is a popular choice and is said to combine all five Feng shui elements. The number of stalks also have their own significance like two is for love and marriage while five is good for your health. You can also go for plants like Areca palm, fern, money plant, etc. Feng shui advises you to choose plants with rounded leaves and avoid spiky ones.

KEEP YOUR KITCHEN CLEAN AND ORGANIZED

In Feng shui, kitchen represents wealth and career. Try and keep your stove clean at all times. Mixing up burners on the stoves is something that is suggested to open up new opportunities and avoid doing the same things over and over again. Remove all the appliances that you don’t use very often from your counters and use drawers and baskets to keep your stuff organized. Decorate it with bright and happy colours.

And finally, Fix Broken Things. Your home is a reflection of you and therefore should be clear of any broken things. So get to all the fixing that you had kept for later. Whether you believe in the Chinese art of Feng Shui or are sceptical about the science behind it, these practical tips will definitely bring in more positivity into your life and home. Why not give them a try?
