Easy Feng Shui: Create Balance in your Home and Life

Using the principles of Feng Shui, you can edit your living and work spaces for optimal well-being

Feng Shui is more than just moving around furniture

By creating balance in your physical environment, you create emotional equilibrium.

Done properly, Feng Shui reduces stress, which is a major contributor to illness and disease, and promotes a sense of fulfillment and joy. Feng Shui can quickly and dramatically support your intentions for harmonious living and working, activating more positive feelings.

Feng Shui (“fung schway”) in Chinese means “wind and water” and represents the two most basic elements of life. Together, “Wind Water” represents “Flow Balance.” This is what we call life force, or chi, energy.

Feng Shui has been practiced for thousands of years

It’s not only practical, but it’s also a valuable path to wellness in a cluttered world. In our modern age, we’re bombarded with information, overloaded with “stuff” and busier than ever.

Just as blockages and poor circulation in your body affect health, the energy resulting from over-accumulating and bad “flow” in your home can adversely affect your emotional and physical wellbeing. If you live with others, multiply that. These blocks affect everyone and can fuel friction, conflict and mood swings.

Five “elements” comprise Feng Shui: Wood, Water, Fire, Earth, and Metal

The right proportions of these energies, placed in specific regions of a space, contribute to the sense of flow and harmony. These regions are divided into nine key areas on a rectangular or octagonal grid called the Bagua map.

Feng Shui visualisations to make a powerful impact on your life

1. Visualise a favourite place

This basic exercise helps you get in touch with your own inner sense of ease and balance

Close your eyes and visualize a place you'd love to visit or have visited

Try to see or imagine what you’re thinking about with all your senses - the sights or environment? Any sounds? Smells? Tastes? Anything tactile - e.g. sand under your feel, paddling in water? 

Write down or create a Vision Board of what you imagined and the senses you experienced that felt good

You now have the clues to the feelings and elements you want to bring into your living or work space!

2. Set an intention for a specific area of your life

Next, think about what you would like in your life and visualize that as well

Nine areas of life are examined in Feng Shui 

  1. Relationships

  2. Wealth and Prosperity

  3. Health

  4. Family

  5. Children

  6. Career

  7. Fame and Recognition

  8. Spiritual Cultivation

  9. Travel and Helpful People

Write an intention for each of the nine items listed above

Or write an intention just for the area you wish to enhance, expand or harmonise

Intentions are written in the present tense as if you already have it in your life

e.g. I am living with the love of my life and together we are creating a home and family that provides love, laughter and joy.

3. Use it or lose it — get rid of that clutter

Clutter is stuck energy. Your clutter can be a source of stress and overwhelm. It keeps you from having or sustaining peace

If you declutter your space, you declutter your mind

It’s so easy for things to add up. Whether it’s paper stacks, overflowing storage, or hanging onto gifts you don’t want but feel guilty about getting rid of, clutter can creep up and up.

Putting things out of sight, thinking they’ll be out of mind, doesn’t quite work

All these things hold hidden energy

Or maybe your space is tidy but doesn’t feel quite right and you can’t put your finger on why. In either case, you may not know where to begin

Keep reading!

4. Look at everything with a new eye

Feng Shui daily practice is about putting things “in their homes” and if they don’t have a home, create one or get rid of those things

This includes surfaces, cupboards, drawers, closets, and your desk. You probably have a lot of things in those places that you don’t use.

Get rid of them!

Clear your desk of papers. Toss empty containers.

Do you really need five sets of wooden chopsticks from the take-out place? What about those random screws from an IKEA bookshelf you put together five years ago?

5. Keep out only things you’re working on

Put away everything else. Even random paper clips can be clutter—find them a home or get rid of them.

6. Make your bedroom where you sleep, not conduct business

Your bed is where you sleep and sleep is essential to your well-being

Do you stuff things under your bed? Old tax papers, shoes, or even dust bunnies all interfere with your sleep

Clear out and Feng Shui your bedroom!

Your environment is living and breathing energy and clutter chokes it!

7. Connect with your emotions

Decluttering isn’t about just tossing everything

You can have a meaningful dialogue with yourself about your stuff. In doing so, you will get closer to feeling the benefits of clearing your space

As you’re evaluating each item, ask yourself 

  • Do I still use this?

  • Am I hanging onto this for sentimental reasons?

  • Why am I afraid to let it go?

  • Am I afraid that one day maybe I’ll need this again?

8. Get support

If you have trouble letting go - it’s a BIG step! Please invite someone to help you or to keep you company while you sort

9. Take it slow

Decluttering is a process that can be emotionally intense. Do one area at a time! Start with a single cupboard or drawer or under your bed.

Completing one project will make a huge impact.

You will feel your spirit lift, motivating you to do more and making the space for expansion, creativity and more auspicious energy to flow into your home and life!

Woohoo!
