Feng Shui Tips for Beginners
How to apply the principles of Feng Shui in your home
Welcome to our feng shui tips for beginners! If you are new to feng shui, here is the guide! In this post, we'll cover the basics of feng shui, as well as simple tips that you can immediately implement in your home.
In feng shui, we use the five-element system, which comes from the Taoist philosophy. This system looks at the cycles of nature and how they work together to be in balance.
The five elements are earth, metal, water, wood, and fire. Each element is associated with certain qualities, as well as colors and shapes that can be used as design elements if you want to enhance those qualities in your home and life.
Earth is related to self-care, limits, and nutrition. It is connected with earth colors such as yellow, orange, and brown, as well as with square shapes and heavy objects.
You can add the earth element to your home with a yellow square rug or a solid rectangular table.
Metal has the qualities of playfulness, beauty, and precision. The white, gray, and metallic colors, as well as the circular shapes, represent metal.
To add metal to your space, try adding a round metal planter or lamp.
Water represents deep wisdom, as well as our connection to others and the world around us. It is connected with very dark and wavy black, blue shapes.
You can add water to your home with a fountain or an aquatic masterpiece.
Wood is related to growth, healing, and vitality. It is represented by green, blue, and teal, as well as tall columnar shapes.
Green houseplants are a great way to introduce the wood element into your home.
Fire represents passion, inspiration, and visibility. It is related to fiery colors like bright red and orange and triangle shapes.
Light is also related to the fire element. Lamps are a great way to add the fire element to your home.
The position of command is one of the fundamental bases of feng shui. It is important that your bed, table, and stove are in charge, as each of these elements represents a significant aspect of your life.
Your bed represents you, your stove represents your wealth and resources, and your table represents your career and life path.
To put your bed, desk, or stove in charge, find a place in the room where the following are true: When you're sitting at your desk, in bed, or cooking, you can see the door without being aligned with it.
The idea behind this position is that you have a good view of anyone or anything that may come through the door, which helps you feel more comfortable on a subconscious level. It also means that you are more aware of the potential opportunities that may come your way.
Room by Room Tips
The entry, called the mouth qi, is where energy enters your space. It is also what people see outside your home, so it represents your face to the world. Make sure to keep this area neat and clean so that the qi can flow easily.
It is also important that the front door is easy to find. Is it clearly labeled and is it clear? Your friends, as well as messengers, should be able to find and access you easily.
It is also a good idea to keep this area clean. Clean your entrance regularly and remember to wash your door as well. You can also add a lamp to keep this area bright and present the fire element.
Living rooms are places to socialize with family and friends, so they should be warm and inviting. Make sure you have comfortable seating, enough for everyone in the house, plus some extra seating for guests.
To encourage connection and conversation, turn to chairs and sofas. Try to keep the backs of the chairs facing the door as much as possible.
Healthy green plants can also be a great addition to the living room as they add vital energy and also the element of wood, which represents kindness and compassion.
The kitchen is an important space in the home because it represents the way we eat. One way to improve feng shui in the kitchen is to make sure the refrigerator is clean and tidy.
Are there expired items in the back of the refrigerator? Clean up everything that is no longer useful to you and make compost. Then clean the interior with the intention of creating a space where you can eat healthy food.
Because bathrooms have many drains, they can be a downward and exhausting source of energy. To minimize this, it is a good idea to keep the bathroom door and toilet seat closed as much as possible.
Since water represents the flow of wealth and money in feng shui, this can help prevent money from flowing out.
Your bed and bedroom represent you, so this is a very important area to observe feng shui and a great place to start. First, make sure your bed is in the command position.
Then look under the bed. It is not ideal to use this area as a storage area, as you spend a lot of passive time resting and sleeping here, so anything below you affects you energetically. If you need to store things under the bed for space reasons, be sure to only have soft items tied to the bed, such as sheets and blankets.
You can also add the earth element for support and nutrition; a great way to do this is with an earth-colored square rug under the bed.
