    Feng Shui in the Garden

    Feng shui should not be relegated to indoor living spaces but can extend outside into your garden as well. Good feng shui in your garden will help attract nourishing, high-quality feng shui energy to your home, as well as delight all your senses. 

    When it comes to a good feng shui garden, the size of your garden is not the main criteria. What does matter are the feng shui elements you place in your garden. For instance, placing a feng shui tortoise in a good location can protect, promote, and stabilize the energy of your home. 

    Likewise, you might place a Buddha figurewater feature, or plant a vertical wall in the garden and reap their benefits as well.

    Use Renovations to Your Advantage

    Just as moving to a new home gives you opportunities to capitalize on good energy, the same can be done during renovations of your current home. 

    Whether the remodeling project is big or small, you can use it as an opportunity to remedy some of the Bagua. For example, a kitchen remodel may allow you to correct a bad oven mouth direction or lead to ideas that maximize storage and reduce clutter.

    If you're switching around kids' bedrooms, consider making them all equal in size. This will help balance the energy among the children. Another common example is moving an exterior door or windows to a better feng shui location.

    During your renovations, consider feng shui in your decisions and boost the home's energy.

    Clear Cluttered Spaces

    The feng shui effect of clutter on your health, your energy levels, and the overall quality of your life is obvious. Clutter drains your energy and dampens your very best intentions.

    Feng shui is here to guide you through all the steps of clearing clutter to create better energy in your home.

    There is also another matter that goes beyond physical clutter. The practice of 'space clearing' should also be done regularly. Smudge your home or use essential oils to clear away the negative energies at least once a year or after an intense event. By doing so, your home will feel better and have a better flow of Chi.

    Can Feng Shui Help You Financially?

    Good feng shui will not necessarily bring you wealth, but it will give you the support you need to seek fame and fortune. It helps you create an environment, both at home and in the business, that will strengthen you and attract the energies to manifest your wealth.

    While mapping your home, you should identify the money area of your home. You can then use curves and symbols like fountains and mystic knots to strengthen the abundance and power.

    Feng Shui for Every Season

    Seasons come and go in cycles and with each turning of the calendar, you are afforded the opportunity to use feng shui to your advantage.  It includes your home as well as yourself.

    For instance, in spring you might do your annual spring cleaning and work on clutter. You should also get outside and enjoy nature to bring you out of the winter doldrums. This allows you to bring that good energy back into your nice, clean home.​

    Each holiday of the year also creates opportunities for feng shui. Christmas, for example, is a fantastic excuse to revive spirits with warming feng shui elements. New Year's is as much about renewal as spring, and Valentine's Day is all about improving the love elements.
