The art of living in harmony with the environment
Harmonizing the home to promote the flow of positive energy
Feng Shui is the art of living in harmony and balance with the environment that surrounds us and with the energy flows that traverse it in order to enjoy good fortune. It is a technique for organizing the space in which we live, a method of intervening in the landscape, of arranging rooms and furniture.
Feng Shui is based on the belief that vital energy, or chi, flows in our environment and can have a significant impact on our lives. To maintain a balanced and harmonious energy in your home, it is important to apply the rules of Feng Shui, but first of all to identify and eliminate objects that can obstruct or "steal" this vital energy. These are objects that, according to Feng Shui, can take all the energy from your home.
By following the advice below, you can make simple changes to protect the vibrations of your home and eliminate what is contaminating its harmony.
Feng Shui at Home
In general, a lucky home is designed in such a way as to allow the chi to move harmoniously and slowly from one room to another without stagnating. In such a home, we will not find sharp corners or long corridors.
All pillars and load-bearing beams of the house should be incorporated into the walls. This is because load-bearing beams and corners produce massive amounts of negative energy. This also applies to the load-bearing beams of the ceiling, which it is advisable to cover with a false ceiling. In the bedroom, to avoid sleeping under ceiling beams, you can solve this by using a four-poster bed.
Mirrors are decorative elements present in many homes, but their placement and size can significantly influence the flow of energy in a space. Mirrors facing the front door or reflecting the bed in the bedroom should be avoided altogether because they reflect and disperse the positive energy that enters the home or circulates in the room.
Consider moving mirrors so that they do not directly reflect doors or the bed. If it is not possible to move them, you can cover the mirrors at night or use curtains or screens to block the reflection of the bed. Another tip is to choose quality mirrors, avoiding those that are broken or damaged.
- Paintings and Artwork
The general rule is to avoid anything that looks threatening. In addition to fierce animals, violent or disturbing images, we also avoid certain abstract art that presents sharp points or sad paintings.
Choose artwork and photographs that inspire and make you feel positive. Evocative images of nature, or related to emotions such as happiness and beauty, are the ideal choices. For artwork that disturbs you, but you do not want to get rid of, consider placing it in a less prominent position or in a room where you do not spend much time, such as the bathroom.
The same care must be taken in choosing the patterns of textiles that decorate your spaces. It is advisable to avoid sharp, angular, and threatening patterns. Particularly dangerous are motifs that resemble arrows, spikes, triangles, and anything else that looks hostile, threatening, and fierce.
Prefer designs with soft, rounded, and flowing lines.
- Furniture and Feng Shui
Large, heavy furniture can obstruct the flow of energy in a room. If furniture is poorly placed or blocks the paths of chicirculation, they can create a sense of stagnation and oppression at home.
It is advisable to maintain a balance in the arrangement of furniture allowing energy to flow freely. Avoid placing large furniture directly in front of doors or in the center of a corridor. Ensure that there is enough space in all rooms to move around comfortably.
Fundamental rule: tidy up the house
According to Feng Shui, clutter is one of the biggest "thieves" of energy in a home. Clutter can block the flow of energy and create a sense of chaos and stress.
The golden rules: organization and cleanliness. Take time regularly to get rid of what you no longer need and organize your space efficiently. A clean and tidy environment allows energy to flow without obstacles and promotes a sense of calm and mental clarity.
In short: according to Feng Shui, the energy of the house can be negatively influenced by specific objects that can obstruct the flow of chi. By identifying and eliminating these objects, it is possible to improve the harmony and positive energy of the house.
