Lux Home Sweet Home: Feng Shui Your Home

We all want to free ourselves of clutter when it comes to our living space. To feel organized and centered in your humble habitat can translate positive vibes into many other areas of your life. Spring cleaning may a popular ritual, but why not keep that consistent effort up to maintain the sense of peace as you enter your front door after a long day.

An ancient Chinese art, Feng Shui empowers you to improve every aspect of your life, from your health and wealth to your relationships and career. It enhances your environment according to principles of harmony and energy flow. Whether you’re aware of it or not, your environment — and your relationship with it — are constantly affecting you. Let's simplify and focus on the basics so that you may achieve a healthy, happy and successful life through the influence of your daily environment and surroundings. Here are some quick Feng Shui tips to stay on top of your game:

  • Place an energetic fountain near your front door. The flowing energy of the water symbolizes cash, which helps more of the green stuff come your way. Plus the other benefits of listening to water flow is both relaxing and peaceful!

  • Clear Out The Clutter. Let the chi (energy) flow right into your home at your entryway by ridding your home’s front entry of obstacles. Such things as looming plants or vines, old newspapers, bikes, and toys in your front path may limit the amount of energy entering your home. Get rid of everything you do not love in your house. It's an act of therapy that will light you up and re-inspire you! Make room for those enlightening waves. Now, sighhhh.

  • Spice up your life with indoor plant life. Place indoor plants in your home to enliven the energy of the room, adding hope and cheer. We especially love succulents and snake plant. 

  • Get rid of unwanted frustrations by fixing broken objects and completing unfinished projects. Make sure your front door is in good working order. It shouldn’t scrape the floor or squeak, and the doorknob, hinges, and locks should all be secure. This cure allows you to release your frustrations and anxieties and smooths your life path. Also, tighten your honey-do list and wrap up those unfinished house projects for mind clarity and accomplishment!

  • Encourage helpful people in your life by hanging a pleasant-sounding wind chime. The sound of a metal wind chime hung in the right-front area of your home, office, or bedroom activates more people to help you and gets you more help from the people who are already at your side.

  • Have Good Quality Air + Good Quality Light in your house. These two elements are essential for good feng shui energy in your home. Open the windows often and allow as much natural light as possible into your home, and consider using full-spectrum lights. Now this is good feng shui!
