Feng shui is an ancient Chinese art that balances energies to ensure good fortune and success. By balancing energies, you will be able to control and get rid of the negative energy in your life. According to feng shui, three areas of the home will need the most attention. These areas include the entryway, kitchen, and bedroom. Here are a few ways to feng shui these areas.

Perfect Your Entryway

Your home’s front door is especially important because it is the focal point where all energy enters. Chi, or universal energy, enters your home through the front door. It is important that only good energy enters your home. Negative energy, however, will affect your life as it implies and can possibly hinder your success. To create feng shui in this area, start by making sure the area is clear. Make sure nothing blocks the entryway because this will block energy from entering. Be sure the area has ample lighting, soothing colors and decorations, such as artwork. These items will create a positive and uplifting space, perfect for letting in positive energy.

Create a Peaceful Kitchen Environment

The kitchen is another area of importance because it is where a family receives nourishment. It is where members of a family prepare for the day ahead by eating breakfast and where they come back together to reunite after a long day at dinnertime. The nourishment received at the beginning of the day provides family members with energy, which will allow them to go out into the world and do their day’s work. The food that comes out of the kitchen provides an entire family with health and energy, both necessary for success. Stock the fridge with healthy foods that will provide your family with the best health and create a positive space where your family can meet at the beginning, and end of the day to spend time together.

Rearrange Furniture in the Bedroom

The third area of importance in feng shui is the master bedroom. The bedroom is the area where one rests and refreshes for the next day. It is important that your bedroom is somewhere you can completely relax and unwind at the end of a long day. According to feng shui, it is best if you position your furniture in the “Command Position,” which means placing your bed and other important furniture in an area where you can easily see the doorway. This allows you to see anything that enters. Symbolically, it allows you to see anything that enters your life.

Get Organized

One of the most important aspects of feng shui is to free your space from clutter in order to create a harmonious living environment. Being physically surrounded by clutter can cause your mind to feel cluttered as well, which can be stressful. A messy area will disrupt the harmony of your room, preventing positive energy from flowing through your home. Cleaning can be a therapeutic healing process and employing the practice of feng shui in your apartment can be a tremendous help. Clearing the clutter in your home can help you clear the clutter in your mind. A clear and positive mind will allow for more success in your life, which is what feng shui is all about.

Create Divisions

If you desire extra space in your apartment, create the space yourself! You can do this by purchasing room dividers and creating mini-rooms that will serve whatever purpose you need. If you do not wish to use room dividers, you can do the same with curtains and other pieces of furniture, such as bookshelves. Need a home office? Need a space to unwind and relax? Create a space for you to do just that.
