According to famous Feng Shui master and author Lada Ray, “In its highest form, good Feng Shui signifies perfect alignment between inner and outer worlds.”
Here are 7 ways to get this balance in your home.
Fix your squeaking door
We all have that one squeaking door at home that needs fixing, but somehow, it keeps getting ignored. Eventually, we get so used to it that its noise stops bothering us anymore. The squeaking sound that goes unheard is a scream of bad energy and disturbs the balance of your home. Consequently, it affects you with a dose of negativity that you are unaware of. All you need to do is to oil the door simply to get the job done.
Always go for the front door
It is definitely tempting to use the backdoor, especially if you park in the garage; it certainly takes less time and consumes less energy. However, Feng Shui experts claim that using the backdoor promotes the flow of negative energy. Not only that, but it also blocks good fortune and opportunities from entering into your life. You don’t have to take those extra steps every day, but at least do it a couple of times every week to welcome positive energy into your house.
Water fountains are beneficial
Water is a significant Feng Shui element that symbolizes money and career. Feng Shui experts recommend placing a small fountain in the house to achieve prosperity. The most favorable place for the fountain is right inside the front door, or just outside the front door. Be sure to pay attention to the direction of the water flow, as it should be towards the center of the house. This essentially gives wealth a chance to start flowing into your life and invites success abundantly.
Fill up spaces in the kitchen
Take a look around your kitchen; see whether the spaces above the kitchen cabinets are empty or not. If vacant, these areas are prone to accumulating dust and old energy over time. This encourages the surge of negative energy into your lives and might hold you back in many aspects. This problem can be easily fixed by filling up those unoccupied spots. You can either place your beloved objects, or a small lamp for extra lighting, or even some green plants for a pleasant look; whether real or artificial.
Solve the bathroom dilemma
Many people concerned with Feng Shui are hesitant when it comes to the bathroom. As previously mentioned, water according to Feng Shui is a symbol of wealth and it is commonly believed that you can flush away your wealth through your toilets. Obviously, no one wants that. However, lots of experts say that as water drains; it returns to the house. Still to be on the safe side, we advise you to keep the toilet seat down and to keep the bathroom door closed, to ward off its harmful effects.
No TV in the bedroom, at least not an obvious one
It is much healthier to avoid having a TV placed inside your bedroom as it is a place to relax and connect with your partner; however, many people still have TVs in their bedrooms. A TV has a lot of active energy which hugely interrupts your inner peace making it a hindrance for good Feng Shui. If you still want to keep the TV, the least you can do is to cover it up with a nice piece of fabric when you’re not using it.
Create the right ambience
The home should be well-lit and airy to create a good Feng Shui atmosphere. Use neutral earthy tones in your home with some accents and pops of color, where needed. The easiest way to give your home a colorful vibe is by using Casart vibrant wallpapers, as they are less messy and easy to install and reposition than traditional wallpaper. You can use them to decorate your walls with striking patterns and reuse them as design desire changes. We have found Casart Coverings to be one of the best producers of high-quality wallcoverings.
