The ancient practise of Feng Shui, which focuses on maximising the flow of qi energy, has seen a meteoric rise in popularity recently all around the world. Even the traditionally suspicious people of the West are falling for it, hook, line, and sinker. Masters that are known all over the world serve as consultants and travel the world in order to share their expertise with aspiring artists. The marketplaces are flooded with dragons, Buddhas, pagodas, wind chimes, and other such items; most residences and even workplaces seem like smaller versions of China towns! You have entered the fascinating realm of Feng Shui.
In Feng Shui, almost anything may be utilised as a decorative element, including plants, water, brass plates, bells, and even dirt. These decorations may be positioned in a certain sector, facing the individual’s best direction, according to the individual’s kua or their birth date. This guarantees that he will get what is readily accessible in the natural world!
Feng shui places a strong emphasis on maintaining a clean and uncluttered environment. Whether you’re in the workplace or at home, you need to ensure that energy can go freely both ways. A statue of a giggling Buddha that beams a welcome to visitors as they enter the house is an appropriate greeting. Wind chimes that make a tinkling sound when moved by the wind provide music that is calming to the ears and helps to create an atmosphere of tranquilly in the house. Your house may be cleansed of negative energy with the aid of a little bamboo flute, which will also encourage the flow of good energy into your space. A water fountain at your fame or fortune corner may make a significant contribution to the quality of your existence.
Even indoor plants have an important part to play in Feng Shui. Bamboo, also known as dracaena, is a plant that can be maintained alive and well by placing it in a bowl of water and placing it in any room of the home or workplace. If it is a place of business, the best location for it is near the register where customers make their purchases. This points to further expansion and economic success. The same principle applies to money plant as well. If you have a lawn or a kitchen garden, you should attempt to ensure that there are lots of blooming plants. For those of you who live in high-rise buildings, placing a box on the kitchen counter, at the window sill, or among your houseplants may work miracles. Contrasting the feel of rock and water in your landscape will help you achieve the yin and yang balance that is so important in feng shui. The life force will be drawn into your home by the presence of vegetation on the patio or in the entryway.
The décor is a key component in the overall design of your home, and its importance should not be underestimated. Our thoughts experience a sense of calm when exposed to certain colours. The space will look more open and airy if it is painted in a light or pastel tint, which is also easier on the eyes. Red and other dark hues should be avoided since they are harsh and cause irritation to people’s eyes. A pastel tone has the potential to improve your disposition and put you in a better frame of mind.
If you are going to be hosting guests in your living room, you should choose a bright hue to paint the walls with when you are picking colours for your home’s decor. Choose colours that are soft and muted for your bedroom if you want to relax while you’re in there. On the wall that is across from the bed, hang some paintings or wall hangings that have a romantic theme.
It is not necessary to keep things in the home that serve no use. Get rid of them immediately. There is an accumulation of chi that is not needed, which prevents it from escaping. If you want to lead a healthy life, Feng shui recommends that you follow these easy measures.
