The Seven Rules Of Feng Shui That Will Change Your Home

Listen to this story

“Be aware of the space you live in to feel better. Flow with space to embrace a feeling of harmony that starts from environment and decoration and translates into an internal well-being”.

Feng Shui is a philosophy that originated in China 3,500 years ago. It is based on rules that completely change how you feel at home. Furniture can be aesthetically pleasant, practical, and indispensable (we all know that!). However, it can also provide positive energy, an invisible function at first glance.

Spacial organization, colors, materials representing natural elements... Everything dovetails beautifully if we apply the rules of Feng Shui. So stay tuned and discover the seven rules that will change your home. If you are wondering what Feng Shui is and what it is meant to achieve, we will tell you!

FENG SHUI: THE PHILOSOPHY OF CHI

According to ancient Chinese philosophy, Chi means "life force." The Chi is the energy that makes us be and live. It flows through our bodies and keeps us balanced. We can imagine this vital energy in our home as a stream of air entering through the windows and doors, moving through the corridors, and breathing life in each room.

Feng Shui focuses on providing balance and making the Chi flow in a certain way throughout our home since its direction will depend on the objects in the space. This energy should circulate in a balanced way: neither too fast nor too slow. Softness, in this case, is the key.

A CLEAN AND TIDY SPACE

If you know Marie Kondo's work, you know what we mean. To fill our home with positive energy, we must first empty it. Remove the objects you no longer use while expressing gratitude for their passage in your life (of course), and clean the areas in question (thoroughly!). Through this process, you will set a clean and neat base to create a more Feng Shui version of your home.

The accumulation of objects slows Chi's free movement, thus creating a heavy environment. Balance is always crucial: keep the objects that bring you happiness and good memories without falling into excess. On the other hand, cleaning will make all corners feel lighter. We recommend starting with cabinets or raised surfaces and finishing with the most superficial areas.

MIRRORS: THE PROTAGONISTS

Mirrors are mandatory if you want to create positive environments. You have to place them strategically to multiply the feeling of harmony in any room. According to Feng Shui, mirrors represent the "water" element and are crucial in changing the energy flow and providing clarity.

The rules are clear: avoid placing mirrors in front of the house's doors, so the energy does not "escape." Instead, it would help if you placed them in areas that do not face any door. In addition, it is advisable to place mirrors precisely in inspiring spaces of the house to duplicate this feeling.

THE WOOD ELEMENT

According to Feng Shui, wood is also a central element. It represents growing energy and is directly associated with creativity, movement, and renewal. Therefore, a handcrafted wooden piece of furniture, especially when it is solid wood, becomes an essential element for transmitting beneficial effects.

It is possible to find this warm element in wooden floors, decorative elements, or main pieces, such as shelves, sofas, or tables. Introducing wooden furniture in your home will undoubtedly bring positive energy to your favorite rooms.

BEYOND COLORS

Colors can evidently change the aesthetics of a room, but their transformational power goes far beyond that. They also possess specific meanings and create emotional states with peculiar benefits. We can choose colors to enhance our well-being depending on the space we want to decorate. Feng Shui divides the colors in relation to the five elements: fire, earth, metal, water, and wood.

If you need to transform your life or have more energy, the "fire" colors, like red, orange, yellow, purple, and pink, are perfect. If, by contrast, stability is your current priority, brown and beige tones are the best choice, as they pertain to the "earth" palette. Do you need a reconnection on a personal level? Opt for "metal" colors: white and gray. On the other hand, blue and black, the colors of "water," will be ideal for moving and changing situations. And for vitality and health, opt for green, which is part of the "wood" group.

YES TO CIRCULAR FORMS

Do you want to attract abundance in your life? Feng Shui proposes the following solution for you. According to experts, decorating your home with circular shapes is key since circles contain strong yang and vibrant energy that speeds up movement. Therefore, movement in the same direction is best for attracting abundance.

You can physically introduce this shape in your home with, for example, a maxi pouf that will bring smoothness to your living room. A round carpet in 100% natural fabric is also a great option to complete this circular look. And, by the way, for attracting abundance!

BEDROOM: ALWAYS YIN

Some rules of Feng Shui can help us create a true oasis of tranquility for relaxing and disconnecting from the world. For example, a bedroom in which yin energy predominates will allow us to rest better thanks to its natural calmness. To achieve this, we can introduce elements made with organic materials, such as cotton textiles and wooden structures.

And where shall we put the bed? Preferably against the wall, to increase a positive feeling of safety. The bed should not be placed in any path between the door and the windows so that energy can move freely. Adding a headboard is also a smart option for enhancing a feeling of protection. You will love the result!

WHAT ABOUT THE HOME OFFICE?

Of course, we can apply the rules of Feng Shui to our home office. Since we spend many hours in that part of the house, it is especially beneficial to apply the principles of this philosophy. Again, organization and cleanliness are key here: we need to create a space where energy flows to create and inspire without limit.

Regarding furniture, it is essential to have a desk dedicated exclusively to work since it represents professional stability. In addition, we should place it where we can see the door as it will ensure success. Experts explain: "It's a metaphor: as you see everything that comes into the room, you'll see everything that happens in your business."
