Feng Shui pronounced [fə́ŋ.ʂwèi] is a belief in the presence of energy in every animate or inanimate object.
It is highly subjective but some have experienced a great deal of prosperity in various aspects of their lives.
And the best part is, you don’t have to go out of your way to try it. You can simply re-arrange furniture, get rid of clutter and other basic procedures to let the energy flow freely.
Here are some useful tips for letting the good vibes in:
- Keep your space clean and organized
Aside from its practicality, a well-kept space elicits peace of mind.
Have you noticed how you feel stressed or overwhelmed when you see clutter or how you feel at ease when a place is spotless and orderly? Your environment impacts your mental disposition so always keep it tidy.
Make sure to store your stuff properly. Ideally, items that are used daily should be in shelves that are within eye level. On the other hand, items that are rarely used should be stored in the topmost or bottom shelves.
In your bedroom, go for white sheets or neutral colors to give off a calming vibe. Try our bestseller, the Premium Bamboo Luxury Set for ultimate relaxation.
- Go for natural lighting
Not only will this help you save on electricity charges but it can also allow chi or energy to enter your home. Open your windows or give your curtains a rest during daytime.
- Know your home energy map
Yes, there is such a thing. It’s not a literal map per se, but more of general guidelines on which places can be optimized for better energy flow.
A feng shui expert puts it as “Bagua (also sometimes spelled as pakua) which translates from Chinese language as 8 areas.
Basically, the ancient feng shui masters not only defined the 8 major life areas that are important for your happiness and well being; they also mapped the connection between these life areas and the energy of your home or office.”
- Use plants inside and outside your home
Plants are great air purifiers for your home.
According to LiveScience, “An indoor plant's ability to remove harmful compounds from the air is an example of phytoremediation, which is the use of any plant — indoors or out — to mitigate pollution in air, soil or water.”
So, go ahead and place plants in your room, kitchen and living area. Not only do they bring in chi, they also act as great home decors.

- Control your mood
Sometimes it can’t be helped. Especially if you’d just had a long day at work, an exhausting commute, or whatever unfortunate event it may be.
The last thing you want to do is bring your tension in your home. Your home should be a place of solitude. It should be your space for comfort and rest.
Not to say that you should disregard your feelings and always be optimistic. Always remember that your emotions are reactions that you can change at any moment of time.
By choosing positive vibes, you radiate peace which is brought into your home. Like attracts like so, a happy disposition inevitably brings more prosperity in all aspects of your life.
Try out these practical tips and see how your life changes. Of course, belief has to come into play so, keep an open mind and allow good energy to flow into your life.
