Feng Shui Home TipsHelp you Get Good Vibes
Slow Down the Energy Flow
"When there is a direct line-of-sight between the front door and the back door, it means the chi (or energy) is shooting through the house too fast," says Benko. Instead of having it fly straight out the back door, "you want it to move in a graceful undulating way that goes around your whole home evenly."
The Solution: Slow the chi down with a patterned rug on the floor, artwork on the walls, or even a round entry table
Keep Your House Clear of Clutter
While this may seem like an obvious problem to tackle around the house, we are all too guilty of accumulating things that don't play a specific function in the home. According to Benko, clutter is more than just visually displeasing: "It's an energetic anchor that impedes the best things from unfolding in our lives," she says. An excessive amount of clutter stops us from having clarity of thought and can weigh us down emotionally. Feng shui is less about having a perfectly-styled home, and more about creating a happy and healthy environment.
The Solution: Make sure that you have the correct organizational systems in place for everything in your life, from paying bills, to recycling, to having a designated spot for your keys. You'll feel lighter, less frazzled, and more efficient.
