About Me

As a firm believer in Feng Shui, I feel that it is imperative for us to integrate it into our homes and workplaces.  Feng Shui is a direct reflection of the environment and personal space we live and work in.


(Get rid of all clutter)

Clearing all clutter is perhaps the first thing you should do when implementing a Feng Shui lifestyle.  Clutter inhibits energy flow; items like bags of old clothes, stacks of files, dirty dishes, ambiguous gadgets and toys and anything that does not serve an effective purpose should be discarded or stored.  Clearing clutter can be incredibly therapeutic, and the benefits of being more organised often leads to increased productivity and a sense of clarity.  Do not be afraid to throw away useless things.  A great way to begin getting rid of clutter is to gather all the clothes you are never going to wear again and bring them to the nearest Salvation Army.


(Close that toilet seat)

Water is a huge part of Feng Shui, and the benefits of having water flow in your life can be very positive.  The toilet is a different story, and is a draining mechanism that takes energy away from the core of the home.  The symbolic flushing of water down a drain can have damaging effects on personal finances, and it is therefore recommended to keep the toilet seat down.  Furthermore, Feng Shui states that it is imperative to symbolically separate bathrooms from the rest of our homes, and keep the doors shut when not in use.  The multiple drains in bathrooms are meant to wash away dirt and other waste material, and we do not want all the good things in our lives going down the tubes as well.


(Buy some plants)

Plants are a wonderful Feng Shui tool symbolising life and our natural environment, but you can not have too many plants in your home.  In Feng Shui, corners of rooms are areas where the flow of energy tends to get trapped and plants can be an effective circulator of energy in these lower energy spots.  Plants are also beneficial near dense electrical equipment like computers and outlets as they reverse the electromagnetic fields that can stop the flow of energy.  As a healthy plant can have great benefits for you, a dying or dead plant can be symbolic of decreasing power, so make sure to keep your plants healthy and hydrated.


(Discard negative imagery)

Feng Shui believes having too many depressing figures in your home can have a negative effect on your outlook.  Look around your house and become aware of your decorations/artwork in this manner.  Honestly judge if the images are positive or negative.  For example, if you have a painting of a very sad and lonely person hanging in your living room, you will start to see some parallels in your life with this piece.  Replace it with a more uplifting portrait of trees, skies and waterfalls etc, something that makes you feel good, and the parallels will begin to shift.  Fill your life with happy, energetic and inspiring pieces and see where that leads you.


(Use running water)

Water is a huge component of Feng Shui.  Outside of the toilet, having some kind of running water in your home can be extremely beneficial to the flow of energy and creativity, especially in the area of finance.  Contemplate buying a small water feature fountain, and put it in an area that you feel has a low energy flow.  Fish tanks are equally wonderful as not only do you get running water, but additional life in your space with fish.  The Feng Shui “bagua” is the principle that each area of your home is symbolic of a certain area of your life.  For example, the far left corner of the home represents the financial/wealth bagua, and implementing a fixture of flow (like a fountain) in this area can be a wonderful symbolic step for your financial well-being.


(Let sunlight in)

Nothing has more positive energy than the sun, which is an integral part of effective Feng Shui lifestyle.  Lighting your home with natural sunlight, as opposed to using electricity, can have a dramatic effect on your mood and disposition.  In Feng Shui, the sun is symbolic of health, productivity, and motivation. If you have any opportunity you have to get this natural resource in your home, just take it! (doesn’t mean west sun is no good).  When you wake up in the morning, open all blinds and shades and keep them open throughout the day.  We have become so reliant on electrical lighting that we often forget the universal source shines on us each and every day.


(Take note of your colours)

The colours in your home elicit a certain feel, or energy, and it is important to put some awareness in your colour choices.  Red symbolizes action, confidence and courage while blue symbolizes spirituality, truth and peace.  Green symbolizes life, nature and well-being while yellow symbolizes wisdom, joy and intellectual energy.  Have you ever stopped to look at the colours in your home, and thought about what they signify?  Using colours to decorate different rooms can really add substance to a house, and it is great Feng Shui practice to use colour schemes that tie-in with your core values.


The principles of Feng Shui teach that subtle alterations in our physical surroundings can have deep and meaningful impact on almost every situation in our lives.  If cultivated the right way, Feng Shui can be a positive force in everything from your finances and career to your health and relationships.
