Feng Shui

Many people have adopted the Chinese art or practice of Feng Shui (“Fung Shway”) to create harmony in their home. The aspect of Feng Shui that relates to creating positive effects in your home relies on the orientation of objects. For example, the way you arrange furniture in a room.

When you decorate your home by allowing “chi” (energy) to flow through your home freely, your home becomes a more open, peaceful and relaxing place to be. The easiest way to put Feng Shui to use in your home is to remove clutter.

Unnecessary junk hinders the flow of good energy through your living space. Color selection and décor are also factors. Here are some easy and inexpensive ways to put Feng Shui into practice in your own home:

1. Make sure nothing is blocking the energy flow through your hallways and doors. De-clutter these areas and place plants in hallways to help the energy along its way.

2. Don’t place any chairs where a person’s back would face a doorway, window or sofa.

3. Don’t let your “chi” get trapped in a corner! Lighten these areas up with lights, mirrors and plants.
