Implement these tips in your home so that good energy can flow freely and you can feel its benefits. And don’t worry, these ideas can be implemented in minutes, what are you waiting for?
-Get rid of the mess
One of the changes you can easily implement is to keep your home clean and tidy. Get rid of all the unnecessary and organize everything you have in your home. The disorder not only makes you feel more stress, it also makes you waste time when you need to look for something. Make sure your room, bathroom and closet are clean to start the day better.
-Listen to Sounds of nature (This is the main step I used every single day)
The sounds of nature, like a waterfall, the singing of the birds or sounds of the night will help you relax. It is proven that these sounds can help you rest and soothe your heartbeat. Use a CD recorded with natural tones or open the windows if you have a patio or live near the sea.
-Choose relaxing Colors
Pastel colors and other light shades, such as the blue, green and beige, help your home to feel calm, and chi energy can flow more freely. Use this palette on the walls, furniture and decorations. If you want to add more flashy colors, red can bring you good luck and success while purple, creativity, and yellow, energy.
-Add Mirrors (Especially by the front entrance)
Mirrors can help to flow the energy. Use mirrors where you feel that the chi may become stagnant, such as small spaces, corners or walls. Octagonal shaped mirrors can be especially beneficial.
-Decorate with plants
The plants help to purify the environment and bring nature to the interior of the house. Plants also represent life, so they can attract good health. Bamboo is good luck in Chinese culture, but you can use the kind you like best. Be sure to throw dead or dry plants as they can make the energy not flow.
-Use decorations with soft and round shapes
Round and circular shaped decorations can help flow the energy in your home. Use a dining table or round side tables and choose furniture that has soft lines. Also use soft lines in the patterns that are part of your decoration.
-Light your Home (Open every window and let natural light go in)
Darkness can bring bad energies, so make sure your whole home has good lighting. Natural lighting is the best choice, so keep the windows and curtains open during the day. During the night, make sure that there are no dark spaces, use soft light to help the energy flow. You can also put plants in dark place to disperse the energy.
