Decorating Your Blackfoot Rental Property: Feng Shui Basics

Blackfoot Feng Shui Living RoomHave you ever attempted to set up your Blackfoot rental home to attract more positive energy, but you’re unsure where you should begin? Why not try out using feng shui to decorate your home? The basics of feng shui are easy to learn at the same time, achieving the vibe you want in your home.

What is Feng Shui?

Feng shui is an approach to arranging your living space that comes from Taoist philosophy. The thought is to use colors, shapes, and design to achieve a balance of five natural elements: earth, metal, water, wood, and fire. Every single of these elements is associated with different qualities. As an illustration, earth tones are connected to qualities such as self-care and nourishment, while metal is thought to invite feelings of joy. Water normally signifies wisdom and connectedness, whereas wood is associated with growth and healing. At last, fire (and light) are thought to invite inspiration and passion into an area. By employing various materials and putting them in certain areas of your home, the concept is to encourage the items in your home to work together to be in balance.

The Basics: Commanding Position

Besides the elements, the commanding position is one of several basic components of feng shui. Essential items in your home need to be “in command” or located in such a way that you feel at ease when you use them. According to popular belief, these key items represent you (your bed), your resources (your stove), and your path in life (desk). By placing them in command, you’ll be able to spot potential opportunities more easily.

To put your bed, stove, or desk in the commanding position, locate the spot in each room where you can use the item conveniently while still being able to see the door. This must be someplace that is not directly in line with the door but at a comfortable angle. The concept of positioning important items in this manner is to make your subconscious mind relax, helping you to be more aware of what may be coming up next in your life.

Feng Shui Room by Room

Using the principles of feng shui may seem a little different depending on which room you are giving attention to. Some of the most common areas that feng shui can make a big difference are the entryway, living room, bedroom, and kitchen.

  • Entryway: As stated by feng shui, entrances are really important for the reason that this is where energy enters the space inside your home. Typically referred to as the “mouth of qi,” retaining the threshold of your house clear and neat can help good energy flow more quickly. To maximize the effect, sweep the entrance habitually, and make sure that the door is routinely scrubbed.
  • Living Room: To encourage enjoyable gatherings, put in comfortable seating in your living room that faces inward. Avoid placing the back of any chair or sofa directly in front of a door. Fill the room with green plants to become lively and appeal to the wood element.
  • Bedroom: The first thing to do in the bedroom is to put your bed in the commanding position. After that, do everything possible to keep the space under your bed clear of clutter or other storage items. Add earth elements for nourishment and support, such as earth-tone rugs or blankets.
  • Kitchen: To utilize feng shui in the kitchen, maintain your kitchen clean to draw more positive energy in your home. This incorporates inside your fridge and cupboards. If you can place your stove in the command position, do so. At that time, fill your kitchen space with healthy foods and the five elements to give the space purpose and healing vibes.

By using the principles of feng shui, you can more easily lift the energy in your home to support the healthy, happy lifestyle you want.
