10 feng shui quick fixes

Published: 03/06/2020

Here are 10 suggestions for creating an inspiring, safe and inviting home that will bring positive opportunities, wealth, health and abundance.

Make your entry entrancing

The entrance is the all important area of your house and is considered the mouth of Chi where all your opportunities enter. It must inspire so invest in a new doormat, paint the front door, dust the cobwebs and place plants or flowers in attractive planters on both sides of the front door as a welcoming threshold.

Clear away clutter

We need to be energetically connected to our possessions. Having lots of belongings in our lives sucks our energy and pulls us down. We need to exercise restraint and downsize, buy less and become more conscious of the footprint we are leaving on the earth. Less is best so start getting rid of anything you don’t use and pay special attention to the kitchen and closets. Remove superfluous decorations and put away kitchen appliances such as toasters as it is important that all surfaces feel spacious.

Bring in nature

As nature realigns our energy field and makes us feel whole, we need to bring it into our homes to make us feel at home.  Open windows, introduce plants and fresh flowers, invest in an air purifier and let the natural light stream in.

Replace or fix

Look after the home the way you look after yourself as it is a metaphor for your life and reflects your balance. Replace or fix things that are broken, cracked, moulding, rotting and give your home a thorough clean inside and out - steam clean carpets, wipe out the cupboards and wash the windows.

Move furniture blocking Chi

Rearrange the furniture to help Chi move freely around your home. Visualise the energy as water entering your home and flowing from room to room. Move the furniture out of any natural pathways and don’t overcrowd rooms. Make sure enough space is left between pieces of furniture so that the energy can move around easily.

Move desks to an empowering position

To improve your work and wealth, move your desk to the command position of the room as you’ll never feel truly comfortable if you can’t see what is going on.  The command position is facing the door that opens into the room. Make sure that there is a wall behind the desk as opposed to a window.

Use mirrors wisely

Placing mirrors correctly can bring positive Chi into areas of your home. It is believed that it will increase your wealth, health and happiness. If incorrect, it can do harm. Don’t hang mirrors opposite doors or other mirrors and in bedrooms, ensure that there are none facing your bed or placed above it. Stick to the living and dining areas. The dining table is a symbol of a family’s abundance as meals are served there to nourish and support the family. A mirror that reflects the table will double the abundance.

Just add water

Fountains and water bring the energy of the water element and are an ancient Feng Shui symbol of wealth and prosperity.  They can be inside or outside and they don't have to be oriental, they can be tabletop, free-standing or wall-mounted.

Keep the bathroom door closed

Bathrooms carry waste water from the home so keep it contained within this room by keeping the bathroom door closed. Also, keep the toilet lid closed when not in use and especially when flushing to stop the family wealth from being flushed away.

Create a relaxing bedroom

A good bedroom promotes a harmonious flow of nourishing energy and should feel inviting, exciting and calm at the same time. Remove the TV, laptop and exercise equipment as they bring in work, stress and distraction. The room should be decorated to balance and promote restorative sleep. Have a solid headboard and two bedside tables, and avoid the bed being directly in line with the door. The colour scheme should be reflective of skin tones, ranging from pale whites to rich browns.
