How to Feng Shui Your Home

Is your house a "Home SWEET Home?" If it's not, you can use the principles of feng shui to create a strong center in your home. Start with one room and work your way around the entire house.

Clutter is the number one problem to remove when planning a redo of your home. Dust, tidy up and removing junk will go miles towards getting the positive energy flowing in your home.

Give it to charitable causes, sell it at a yard sale or just plain take it to the landfill. It doesn't matter how you get rid of it - like Nike says, just do it. It's the place to start.

Now you need to create the bagua which is a map of your home that determines the energy points. The geographic points are of course north, east, south and west and those are further broken down into north east, north west, south east and south west. Every one of these areas has a corresponding element and color to be used.

Did you ever walk into a home and instantly get a feeling of minor depression or unease? Every once in a while, if something is wrong in the home it needs an energy cure. Feng shui philosophy maintains that a combination of essential oils, representations of the elements and a selection of crystals can be used to return your home to a positive and stable energy flow.

Using the Chinese New Year as a guide, determine the element that works best for all the members of your family. Use this element predominantly in the bedroom of that person to bring a sense of harmony and peace.

Each feng shui color has an element associated with it. In the common areas, bring all of the elements together in balance through furniture, artwork, flowers and other features. Using miniature fountains is a great way to bring water into the picture.

Where you place things in the various rooms also makes a big difference. Energy must be allowed to flow without exception for your home to have positive energy. After you've spent hours getting rid of clutter, the last thing you want to do is re-clutter your home by over filling it with furniture. Remember, in a feng shui home "less is more" is the way to go.

You can consult an expert in feng shui for guidance on the amount of a single color to use in a particular room. Be open to what they suggest and you'll be successful in creating positive energy throughout your home.
