I know exactly what you are thinking …. Feng Shui is soooo 1980’s … but I LOVE IT!!! Given that everything is energy and it is all letting off a vibrational frequency, we can then start thinking about the placement of objects within our homes and work areas and how they affect us.

We can consider how their vibrations can in fact affect our environments and thus affect the energy-based environments we are existing in and aligning to.

Feng Shui is a Chinese practice which uses energy forces to harmonize individuals through their environment.

It is a wonderful tool to use on a daily basis to get yourself vibrating at a higher frequency with minimal effort.

Directly translated, feng means “wind” and shui means “water.” In Chinese culture, wind and water are associated with good health, thus good feng shui came to mean good fortune.

There are many ways you can improve the energy in your environment with good Feng Shui practices. You can use aquariums to attract prosperity or use crystals, fountains or clocks for other personal goals.

What I like about Feng Shui is that it has a set of guidelines to follow, easy practices that you can put in place that have lasting effects on the energy around you.

A few tips to try in your own home or work space:

  • In Feng Shui the colour red is aligned with wealth, as is the number 108. Keeping a red envelope with $108 in it in your purse or wallet is a good way to encourage more of the same.
  • Keep your front door clean and clear of clutter, able to open widely to allow new energy in.
  • Creating a mountain of wealth at your front door by painting 8 river stones gold and piling them up to the side of the door.
  • Citrine is the crystal used for attracting wealth and for strengthening one’s self-esteem.
  • Placing black tourmaline and clear quartz in the corners of your bed to clear negative energies.
  • Keep your home and office free from clutter. If a space is cluttered it cannot keep the energy of wealth.
  • Create an abundance bowl for your desk – it should contain money, 8 pieces of citrine and 8 small gold-painted river stones.
  • Having plants in your home creates good energy. Place a potted plant in the South East corner of your home, as well as in the kitchen and bathrooms.
  • Introduce water into your home by way of a fountain or aquarium.
  • Having a picture of water and trees in the South East corner of your home is another way to encourage abundance.
  • Keep a bowl of fruit on the dining room table as a symbol of abundance.
  • A ship is a symbol that represents incoming abundance, you can use a picture of a ship or a model of a ship.
