The study of Feng Shui can be tricky as there are many different schools of thought taught by various Masters. This could confuse an inexperienced user.
Using Feng Shui is not as difficult as it seems. In this article, we cover some simple Feng Shui application techniques you can use to bring good vibes into your home.
1. The Bright Hall
The space located in front of a home is known as the Bright Hall. This open space is essential to help collect Qi from the home’s surroundings. Qi, or energy, must have an area to settle and collect before it can enter the property. This area should be clear from any clutter, clean and spacious to encourage the movement and collection of positive Qi.
Natural lighting also promotes positive energy within a home. Ensure that the interior walls or nearby structures do not cast shadows and prevent sunlight from entering the home.
Having a well-lit home attracts and activates positive energy. This encourages improved productivity, alertness and high spirits for the occupants of the home.
2. The Main Door Location
The location of the Main Door is crucial to a house’s Feng Shui as this is the primary entrance of Qi from the environment. It is best to ensure that this feature is not adversely affected by the surrounding Landforms so that the Qi is unhindered from entering the home.
Some negative Forms that could affect Qi flow include sharp corners and lampposts that directly face the home’s entrance. If these features are located far away, then there is no need to be concerned.
3. The Bed Position
A bedroom that is Feng Shui-compliant can lay the foundation a person needs to improve their career prospects. Although this might not seem directly related, this is actually the most important room in the house.
Occupants spend a third of their lives resting and sleeping here. If their fitness levels are low due to disrupted sleep, this could affect their work performance and hinder the occupant’s long-term career goals.
Position the bed against something solid like a wall. As sleep is a Yin (passive) activity, the bed should be positioned against a Yin feature to encourage restful sleep. Avoid positioning the bed’s headboard against a Yang (active) feature like a window, as this could result in health challenges, decrease in work performance and inconsistent sleep patterns.
A pillar located right in the middle of the bedroom will hinder a person from getting good quality sleep. This unfavourable Formation is known as a “Pole in the Heart Formation”. This negatively affects the Qi circulating in the room, which might prevent the occupant from getting a good night’s sleep.
4. The Study Room / Home Office
Other than the bedroom, the study room or home office should be a priority. This is where important work is done. This can also double up as a study area for the occupant’s children outside of school.
Ensure that natural sunlight is able to enter this room to maintain a positive and alert mental state. Any trees or shrubbery blocking sunlight from entering could result in decreased levels of motivation, focus and productivity in that space.
The homeowner can remove the greenery that is hindering the sunlight from coming in or open the windows and door to let natural light enter the room.
To boost your focus levels while you’re in the room, ensure that the door to the home office opens up to a spacious area. This allows positive Qi to collect and circulate before entering the Study Room.
