Have you ever needed to organize your La Verkin rental home to welcome more positive energy, but you’re doubtful where to start? Why not begin to use feng shui to beautify your home? Learning the basics of feng shui can be easy while helping you achieve the vibe you want in your home.
What is Feng Shui?
Feng shui is an approach to arranging your living space that comes from Taoist philosophy. The idea is to use colors, shapes, and design to achieve a balance of five natural elements: earth, metal, water, wood, and fire. Each of these elements is associated with different qualities. For example, earth tones are connected to qualities such as self-care and nourishment, while metal is thought to invite feelings of joy. Water typically represents wisdom and connectedness, while wood relates to growth and healing. At last, fire (and light) are thought to invite inspiration and passion into an area. By using particular materials and putting them in certain areas of your home, the concept is to develop the items in your home to work together to be in balance.
The Basics: Commanding Position
Other than the elements, the commanding position is another of the basic components of feng shui. Essential items in your home need to be “in command” or located somewhere that you feel at ease when you use them. The reasoning goes that these key items represent you (your bed), your resources (your stove), and your path in life (desk). By placing them in command, you may more effectively perceive potential opportunities heading your direction.
To put your bed, stove, or desk in the commanding position, locate the spot in each room where you can use the item conveniently at the same time, being able to see the door. This should be someplace that is not directly in line with the door but at a comfortable angle. By positioning important items along these lines, the idea is to help your subconscious mind relax, consequently permitting you to be more aware of what might be coming up next in your life.
Feng Shui Room by Room
Using the principles of feng shui looks somewhat changed depending on which room you are considering closely. Some of the most common areas that feng shui can make a huge difference are the entryway, living room, bedroom, and kitchen.
- Entryway: When it comes to feng shui, entrances are most important on the grounds that this is where energy enters the space inside your home. Commonly referred to as the “mouth of qi,” keeping the threshold of your house clear and clean can help good energy flow more freely. To maximize the effect, sweep the entrance consistently, and be sure to give your door a decent clean regularly.
- Living Room: To invite pleasant gatherings, include comfortable seating in your living room that faces inward. Avoid placing the back of any chair or sofa directly in front of a door. Add healthy green plants to liven up the space and appeal to the wood element.
- Bedroom: The primary objective in the bedroom is to put your bed in the commanding position. After that, put an effort to keep the space under your bed clear of clutter or other storage items. Add earth elements for nourishment and support, such as earth-tone rugs or blankets.
- Kitchen: To use feng shui in the kitchen, keep your kitchen clean to invite more positive energy in your home. This includes inside your fridge and cupboards. If you can place your stove in the command position, do so. Then, fill your kitchen space with healthy foods and the five elements to give the space purpose and healing vibes.
By implementing the principles of feng shui, you can more effectively lift the energy in your home to support the healthy, happy lifestyle you need.
