Feng Shui is not just a fun topic to find out more about, but it is a really practical discipline that in some ways can appear to cut corners when it comes to achieving goals and working on your personal development and who doesn’t like an easy life?
If you’d like to learn how to shift the energy around in your environment; work, home, your car or even your garden so that you can have it create an energetic atmosphere that supports and enhances your goals, you’d be interested in that right?
Here’s everything you need to know about Feng Shui including some tips to make some quick adjustments in your home right now!
What is a Feng Shui?
Feng shui is an ancient art that was formalised over 3,000 years ago in China. If you were to translate the meaning of the word ‘Feng Shui’ it means Wind and Water and in Chinese culture wind and water means good luck.
Good Feng Shui means good luck, and bad Feng Shui means ‘bad luck’.
So you can see the underlying principles of Feng Shui right from the offset. If you have good Feng Shui, you have good luck with good Feng Shui and bad luck with bad Feng Shui according to Chinese culture. Essentially Feng Shui is the practice of bringing in good chi, to your life and reducing, or eliminating the bad chi!
Feng Shui is based on Taoism, and the notion the land is alive with ‘chi’ which is what we know as energy, but it also has roots in astrology, astronomy and philosophy and follows principles from the I-Ching.
To practice Feng Shui, you are essentially practising the art of placement. Which is intentionally placing your objects within a space to enjoy the beneficial flow of energy that the arrangement of the objects creates.
While this is a simple explanation of Feng Shui, the art is very complex and can produce profound benefits to your life, which includes health, wealth, the accomplishment of goals, wellbeing and a happy home or work environment.
Feng Shui teaches us how to balance and harmonise with the energies in any given space with the intention to assure good fortune for the people inhabiting an area. Feng shui has also had an impact on interior design and the layout of living and working spaces.
In fact, I can recall a Chinese couple who was buying a house many moons ago, the house was exactly what they wanted, and well within budget but they refused to buy it because the front door was south facing, and that according to their Feng shui principles was not good Feng Shui
Feng Shui includes many different systems as part of the science which includes;
The Principles Of Yin and Yang
Yin and Yang refer to the masculine and feminine energy that flows through all of life and that are opposites which depend on each other. Feng Shui focuses on how to balance that energy which promotes a healthy flow of chi and a happy and healthy life!
Yin and Yang also represent duality, which is the idea that everything in life forms a balanced blend of two opposites. When a balance is achieved so equilibrium reigns, and when a balance is not achieved discord occurs.
- Yin = Masculine
- Yang = Feminine
The Five Elements of Feng Shui
Five elements form part of the principles of Feng Shui, and each element also has a colour associated with it.
- Wood = Green or brown.
- Fire = Red, orange, purple, pink, strong yellow.
- Earth = Light yellow, sandy and earthy tones and light brown.
- Metal = White or grey
- Water = Blue or black
In the feng shui system everything is believed to have variable amounts of all five elements, and again to achieve balance, these five elements should be positioned accordingly. Each of the five elements also have positive and negative properties that correspond to the elements.
For example; Fire provides warmth and comfort, it heats up metal to make it warm to the touch, or burns coal (earth) and wood to keep us warm and comfortable, but it can also scorch the earth, destroy the wood, and bend the metal. The ashes from the fire have now transmuted to earth and will now nourish the earth it has scorched, and so they cycle continues.
The Feng Shui Directions
A special tool is used to find the correct directions to position important feng shui elements in your home called a bagua. A bagua is an octagonal grid that contains the symbols of I-ching, and when you know the bagua (or mapping chart of your home), then you can start to apply appropriate feng shui placements to enhance the natural chi and move the energy to align with your goals.
The bagua map is used by first orienting yourself to the main entrance to the house, or the entry to an individual room, then using the map to identify the different key areas of the space. Then, specific items can be positioned in those key areas to enhance their feng shui.
The placement of items will correspond to the intention for the space, and the appropriate combination of elements which will be represented in objects that you place in the room.
For example, the place defined as the wisdom area is a good place for some books, while the love/relationship space is a good place for a wedding photo or card from your loved one.
The Feng Shui directions are the same as what we already know;

Easy Feng Shui Tips To Enhance Your Life
- Clear Out The Clutter
So you probably knew this one was coming, but there’s a reason why everybody tells you that clutter bad. It’s because it is terrible, for your health, your wellbeing, your psyche and your ability to think clearly and for your ability to be able to breathe clean air and receive clear energy when you are at your home, office, in your car or even loft, garage, shed or workshop.
Clutter is a no-go zone, for many reasons and Feng Shui agrees. It’s one of their most fundamental principles, why not heed the advice and create a clutter-free area at home right now. If there’s too much to sort out start with one drawer only.
- Happy Pictures Only
Keep plenty of happy photos and images all around your home, particularly the kitchen, dining room, living room, hallway and family room.
- Applying Different Picture Rules in The Bedroom
Refrain from keeping pictures of your children, parents, friends and family from your bedroom – it’s a different vibe. Instead keep photos of your partner or images that inspire love, intimacy and romance instead.
- Purify Your Air
Manage the Emf levels in your home (salt lamps and citrine are good ways to do this), use air purifiers such as crystals, candles and essential oils to bring love, peace and harmony into the air.
- Keep The Toilet Lid Down
Now, men, I know this can be hard (meanwhile all the women around are secretly smiling over this wonderful suggestion that is NOT coming from them). According to feng shui, the toilet represents a drain, and a drain represents something that sucks things away (or at least allows things to flow away). This is not good for maintaining energy and good vibes and it’s not good for keeping hold of money either – no, not at all! So it’s time to close that lid and enjoy the peace and money you’ll save. It’s a win-win situation, guys.
- Seek To Attain Balance Especially In The Bedroom
Don’t have your bed all squashed up in a corner if you can help it, and do try to keep two bedside tables balanced out nicely with two lamps.
They don’t need to match, but you do need two, even if you are not looking to attract love, it will bring in a peaceful vibe. But if you do find that you want to attract love well, you’re already prepared.
- Fix Broken Things
Don’t keep broken or damaged things around the home, instead fix or replace and discard them. It’s lousy feng shui and frankly pointless to have them hanging around.
- Don’t Sleep With Loads Of Mirrors In Your Bedroom
If you have lots of reflective surfaces in your bedroom energy is going to be bouncing around like a ping-pong ball, and that’s not conducive to a good nights sleep. If you like mirrors, soften them at night with some sheer fabric draped over them, your psyche will thank you for your efforts!
