The ancient Chinese spatial laws of Feng Shui might seem a little obscure or confusing, but if you take the time to delve into the philosophy behind it, you’ll find that it’s not only based on simple common-sense practices. The focus is to make the home or a space healthier and more organised. It also reveals how connected we are to our home and in turn, how our home can affect our mood and well-being.

Commanding Position

The most common feng shui principle is having a commanding position. This governs how you can position yourself in life. Be sure to apply this principle to the location of your bed, desk, and stove. When you are lying in bed, sitting at your desk, or cooking at the stove, you want to be able to see the door. When you are in a commanding position, you are in command of your life. You are in a position to receive positive energy and the best opportunities.

Brighten Up Your Entry

Naturally, the entry is first place to start when you want to create good feng shui in your home. Your entry represents how energy enters your home and your life. Start by making sure the space is clean and decluttered. Then you can focus on adding or removing items that make the entry more inviting or spacious. It is important that the space is bright and well lit, this might mean adding more light or simply just changing the existing bulbs.

Remove Obstacles In Your Path

Take a good look at how you move around your home daily. From when you wake up and go into the kitchen or bathroom to when you return home from work. It is easy to become desensitised to the obstacles that might be in our way. Anything from a door that doesn’t open or close smoothly, physical clutter in your way, or a full and unorganised wardrobe. All these small things can accumulate and create problems. After noticing the obstacles, it is important to make small adjustments gently and with kindness to ensure you have a fresh space.

Space Clearing

As well as decluttering and taking time to arrange your physical space, clearing the energetic space is just as important. The most simple way to do this is by diffusing an essential oil.

Adairs has a great range of diffusers, burners and essential oils for you to choose from. When you clear your home, try to associate it with a positive intention. Hold the intention of what you want to cultivate and create in your life.
