An ancient Chinese tradition known as feng shui, sometimes known as Chinese geomancy, asserts the utilization of energy forces to balance people with their surroundings.Feng shui was historically used to orient buildings and spiritually significant structures like graves, as well as residences and other structures. When establishing proper feng shui in your home, it can be challenging to know where to begin. Which rooms do you start with? What should you do if a room is already decorated or how do you start over?  What should you not do in feng shui?

Luckily, it doesn't have to be difficult. Here are some suggestions for getting started on the path to a happier and more energized house, including some fundamental feng shui principles.


1.Brighten Your Entrance: Your entry symbolizes the way energy enters your house and your life according to feng shui. The "mouth of qi" is the front door. When you want to build proper feng shui in your home, you should start at the entryway.Start with decluttering and removing any debris. A lot of objects tend to accumulate at the front door. It doesn't need to be empty but relatively uncluttered. Make it work for you.After that, tidy up the space by sweeping. It's common to overlook the front entrance. Shake the door mat and clean the door. Blocking energy is one of the essential things you should not do in feng shui. Finally, make sure this space is well-lit and bright. Add lighting or change the bulbs.


2.Your Doors Deserve Your Attention:In feng shui, Doors are a symbol for your voice and communication. Doors are also portals through which opportunities can come into your life. First, be sure that all your doors can open to at least 90 degrees. When there is a bunch of clutter behind a door, it can't open all the way. This blockage means you can only receive a portion of life's opportunities. There are parts that you're closing yourself off to. Next, make sure that all of your doors are operating properly. Make that the hinges are quiet and the hardware operates without a hitch. Verify that the door closes easily and smoothly. All of these specifics have an impact on how the energy reaches you. You want the flow to be as smooth as possible.


3.Clean the windows: For youngsters, windows represent their voice, while for the adults in the house, it represents the eyes. Clean your windows frequently to promote healthy feng shui in your home. Clear, clean windows let in more sunlight. You are awakened and naturally energized by sunlight. When you allow in more light, the house feels bigger, more colorful, and more alive. In a metaphorical sense, having clean windows allows you to view everything around you in its fullest color, clarity, and detail. As a bonus, use all-natural or homemade cleaners, like a simple solution of white vinegar, water, and a few drops of essential oil.


4.Commanding Position: How you set yourself up in life depends on your position of authority. Use this position to choose where to put your stove, desk, and bed.The bed stands in for you. Your career is represented by the desk. The stove also stands for your prosperity. Make sure you can see the door from where you are in these areas without being immediately in front of it. You might wish to view the door, for instance, when you are resting in bed, sitting at your desk, or preparing food on the stove. You can find yourself "kitty-corner" or diagonal from the door. You are in command of your life when you are in a commanding position. You are in a place to receive positive energy and best opportunities



5.Remove Obstacles: in Your Path: Your home's feng shui area arrangement can be seen by paying close attention to the route you take every day.Look at the physical path you walk as you move through your home, from when you wake up and arise from bed, then to the bathroom, and so on as you head out the door. Do the same when you get home, make dinner, and end up in bed. You get used to all the barriers and physical impediments you encounter on a regular basis. Perhaps it's that flickering light fixture or the door that always needs to be slammed shut.  It’s an obstacle when you have to squeeze through a cluttered hallway. Over time these obstacles can accumulate and create problems for you; this can be considered bad feng shui for a house.


6.Space Clearing: Clutter is often in the same sentence as feng shui, but feng shui is less about decluttering and more about creating space.You can use a few techniques: smudging with palo santo wood or diffusing sweet orange essential oil. In need of a simple space clearing technique that requires no materials? Visualize bright white sunlight filling and cleansing your entire home.

When you space-clear your home, try associating it with positive thoughts. Develop an intention of what you want to cultivate and create in your life.

7.Plants bring Life energy: Plants represent life energy in feng shui. What does that mean? Living greenhouse plants connect to nature, bringing vibrancy into your home. Green plants are like a fresh-pressed organic green juice for your home—they introduce freshness and vitality. Green, vibrant plants are one of the key feng shui items for the home. The most important thing to remember is to find plants that you can care for and that are appropriate for the space. 


8.Offer gratitude : Say "thank you" to your house. The shamanic practices of feng shui is based on the idea that your space is living, along with everything else. Your home is infused with the same life force that keeps you alive. Your home is your shelter. Your home gives you a place to rest, nourish, celebrate, and so much more. It's easy to express thanks to your house. Say "thank you" to your house in a humble manner.
