Good feng shui has a number of definitions. It includes everything from good landscape layout, auspicious topography that includes mountains, lakes, or oceans, and good design, including auspicious or inauspicious shapes, harmonious arrangement of elements, and a host of other factors.
Here are a few simple suggestions to get the good vibes flowing your way:
Good Outside Feng Shui
A good feng shui house has no Sha Chi (attacking) or Si Chi (low) energy around it. Carefully study the outside of your house, look at your surroundings with fresh eyes. Do you live in a cul-de-sac house or a T-junction house? Do you live close to the railroad? Is your backyard sloped? Usually, these houses will have challenging feng shui that needs to be taken care of. Creating a beautiful garden, no matter how small, will help attract beneficial feng shui energy to your house.
Energy Flow to the Front Door
A good feng shui house has a smooth, strong and clear energy flow to its front door. Is the Chi, or feng shui energy, flow blocked on its way to your front door? Is there a big tree, or any other feature blocking the flow to your front door?
Or, maybe your door needs some loving care, such as a better feng shui color, new hardware, etc. Do you block the pathway yourself with recycling bins, old pots, shoes outside the front door? You need to take care of that.
Quality of Energy in the Main Entry
A good feng shui house has a main entry designed to welcome, strengthen and channel the incoming feng shui energy throughout the whole house. This will nourish your house and create good energy. What is the first thing you see as your enter your house? Where do you feel the energy (your attention) goes right away? Does it go straight to a bathroom that is close to the front door, or is it pushed right back by a mirror facing the front door?
Strong Feng Shui Trinity
A good feng shui house has good feng shui anchored in its main energy centers – the bedroom, the kitchen and the bathroom. The quality of feng shui energy in your house mainly depends on the strength of feng shui energy in your bedroom, your kitchen and your bathroom.
Be sure all three areas have a strong feng shui foundation and always be aware of the quality of energy in these three energy points of your home. There can be no good feng shui house without a good feng shui bedroom, a good feng shui kitchen and a good feng shui bathroom.
Fresh Feng Shui Energy
A good feng shui house is nourished by fresh, clear and freely flowing energy. There is no stagnant, old or blocked energy anywhere in the house. Everything around us is in constant flow, in constant change. So, even after you’ve created a strong feng shui foundation in your house, the work continues. You have to get into the habit of keeping the energy fresh and flowing and be very mindful about not creating stuck areas in your house.
Stuck, stagnant energy in a specific area of your house will sooner or later express itself in stuck, or completely blocked energy in a specific area of your life (see the feng shui bagua or energy map). Get rid of your clutter, clear out your closets, your basement, your garage, and once these areas are clean, do not let them accumulate more clutter.
Use basic space clearing tips at least once a week. Good, fresh feng shui energy expresses itself in a clean space, fresh air, plenty of good light, and happy, meaningful energy as expressed in any decor items in your house.
In order to create good feng shui in a house, start small and do not get overwhelmed with all the amount of feng shui info out there. First and foremost, you have to trust your senses and go at your own pace. After all, it is your house, and it is best to feel empowered and strong when you do any changes in your house. This is good feng shui!
