You may have heard of Feng Shui before or have at least been familiarized with the concept of a home’s energy (also known as chi) while binge-watching Marie Kondo’s “Tidying Up” on Netflix. Feng shui is Chinese literally translated to “wind” and “water” respectively. In very basic terms, it is the idea that the inside of our home should match the energies and patterns of nature. Feng Shui holds the belief that the state of our home is a reflection of what is going on around us. When our home correctly reflects the energy found in nature, represented in what’s called a Bagua map, we bring in more abundance and prosperity! Who doesn’t want that? The opposite is also true. When our home does not reflect the rhythms and energies in nature, it is said that we bring in negative energy and bad luck into our home and lives. Many people hire feng shui specialists to come into their home and completely redecorate (or sometimes even remodel!), paying attention to colors, location of furniture (having your desk chair face the door is a must) the representations of each element in the Bagua map and a myriad of other things. But to get you started, here are five Feng Shui tips you can start in your home right now, no specialist nor remodeling required!
