By Nerissa Baylon
Are you thinking of how you can invite positive energy into your home this 2017? Luck is on your side! Below, we’ve listed some of feng shui expert Rodika Tchi’s most useful tips on how to transform your home into a bright, harmonious space.
Clear Your Clutter
When a new year is about to come, you should always find time to get rid of things you hardly need. Why not redecorate your home and throw away the unnecessary things? Clearing your space is usually the time where the energy consuming process feels like “healing,” which helps “relieve the burden.”
Get Good Quality Air and Light
Having good quality air and light in your home is essential for positive feng shui energy, called Chi. Open the windows often and put air-purifying plants. Allow as much natural light as possible to enter your home; this helps you brighten up your surroundings and invite positive energy.
Define Your Energy Map
To create good energy in your home, you should define the feng shui bagua of your space and balance its feng shui energies accordingly. By using the bagua or BTB grid, a feng shui tool used to analyze the energy of any given space, you could define the energy map of your house.
Once you have defined the energy map of your house, you will know which areas of your home are connected to specific aspects of your personal life. For instance, the Southeast feng shui area of your home is usually connected to the flow of money energy in your personal financial life.
Know the Basics of the Five Feng Shui Elements
In order to create a balance and induce vibrant energy in all areas of your home, you should know the basics of the five feng shui elements namely wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. If you would like to attract more prosperity into your home, for instance, you should combine the elements of wood and water in the Southeast area of your place. If you need to improve your overall health, you will need to place lush wood items such as pieces of wooden furniture in the East area.
Find Out Your Birth Element
Figure out your feng shui birth element to make your home nourish and support your personal energy. If your birth element is fire, you will need to welcome colors and shapes associated with fire such as red, orange, purple, magenta, pink, and yellow, and triangular shapes. By the way, wood feeds the fire element; ergo, place strong wood items in your home.
Find Out Your Lucky Directions
Adjust the position of your bed, desk, and chairs in the dining table; you should feel the positive energy of your surroundings.
Always be Mindful of the Quality of Energy in Your Home
Lastly, always be mindful of the energy in your home and how it can influence your well-being. Nothing is permanent in the world of energy; always be wise and keep your home healthy and happy.
