Tidy your entry. Your porch, front door, and interior entry is your home’s first impression. To create Feng Shui, it’s important to keep your exterior and interior entry clean and fresh. Sweep your porch and walkway and maintain a clean welcome mat at your front door. Keep your interior entry clear of shoes. Don’t allow mail to pile-up. Be mindful to keep it orderly and clean every day.
Where intention goes, energy flows.
Use all 5 elements within each room. Your home will feel much more balanced if you include all five elements: earth, wood, water, fire, and metal. A bowl of fruit could represent the earth element. A plant might tie-in the wood element. Blue decor could represent the water element. Candles make great fire elements. And a candle holder could portray the metal element. Incorporating all five elements will help balance the energy.
Include live greenery. Plants have the ability to make or break a room. If you aren’t quite sure why a room doesn’t feel right, add a plant to bring your stagnant space to life. Using air-purifying plants like aloe or a snake plant is an added healthful bonus.
Add a bowl of fruit. In Feng Shui, nine pieces of fruit equals luck and wealth. Displaying a bowl of fresh fruit in your kitchen or on your dining table helps to create a balanced vibe.
Deep clean. Most of us have a visceral reaction to cluttered and dirty spaces. Deep cleaning our homes is a form of well-being that deserves more attention. Create a habit of deep cleaning your home. I promise more than your home will be refreshed.
