Have you ever planned to remodel your Alamo Ranch rental home to generate more positive energy but aren’t sure where to begin? Why not start to utilize feng shui principles to decorate your home? Learning the basics of feng shui can be easy while assisting you with accomplishing the vibe you need in your home.
What is Feng Shui?
Feng shui is an approach to arranging your living space that comes from Taoist philosophy. The thought 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 illustration, earth tones are connected to qualities such as self-care and nourishment, while metal is thought to invite feelings of joy. Water normally embodies wisdom and connectedness, while wood signifies growth and healing. At last, fire (and light) are thought to invite inspiration and passion into an area. The concept is to encourage the items in your home to work together to be in balance by using different materials and putting them in certain areas of your home.
The Basics: Commanding Position
Along with the elements, the commanding position is another of the basic components of feng shui. Fundamental items in your home need to be “in command” or positioned in a way that you feel at ease when you use them. The thinking 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 easily anticipate potential opportunities heading your direction.
To set your bed, stove, or desk in the commanding position, locate the spot in each room where you can use the item suitably 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 like this, the approach is to help your subconscious mind relax, thereby allowing 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 may vary depending on which room you are working on. Some of the most common areas that feng shui can make a huge difference are the entryway, living room, bedroom, and kitchen.
- Entryway: As per feng shui, entrances are most important because this is where energy enters the space inside your home. Frequently referred to as the “mouth of qi,” keeping the threshold of your house clear and neat can help good energy flow more easily. To maximize the effect, sweep the entrance always, and don’t forget to give your door a thorough scrub often.
- Living Room: To attract pleasant gatherings, place comfortable seating in your living room that faces inward. Avoid placing the back of any chair or sofa directly in front of a door. Put in lively green plants to liven up space and appeal to the wood element.
- Bedroom: The main objective in the bedroom is to put your bed in the commanding position. Then, try your best to keep the space under your bed clear of clutter or other storage items. Add earth elements for nourishment and support, including earth-tone rugs or blankets.
- Kitchen: To apply feng shui in the kitchen, hold your kitchen clean to summons more positive energy in your home. This includes inside your fridge and cupboards. It would be great if you can place your stove in the command position. Afterward, pack your kitchen space with healthy foods and the five elements to give the space purpose and healing vibes.
By adopting the principles of feng shui, you can more effectively lift the energy in your home to support the healthy, happy lifestyle you expect.
