Having a vibrant and fresh quality of energy flowing in your body is a must for good health. A lot of factors go into maintaining a good flow of energy in the human body - from the air you breathe, the food you eat to the overall quality of your thoughts.
While these factors are quite well-known and hopefully often applied, the importance of good feng shui in one's home is often overlooked.
As we all go through periods of stress in many areas of our life, focusing on your home feng shui to help boost your energy levels is always a good idea. Actually, it is more than just a good idea, it is a necessity once you understand the role your immediate environment plays in your health.
In ancient times in China the doctor will ask the patients about their living and especially sleeping arrangements. If you spend more than 8 hours a day in a space that is not healthy, doesn't it make sense that this negativity will influence your well-being? Of course, it does.
There are many ways you can use feng shui to create a healthy space, and you can explore some of the articles below for more info.
Here, I want to give you 5 very simple tips to help boost your energy levels with feng shui.
I know you might not have the energy right now to start clearing your clutter or to do major rearrangement of furniture, but you can definitely use these easy feng shui tips.
Here are 5 quick feng shui tips to help the energy in your body get fresh and vibrant again by using the five elements theory along with any detox/cleansing program of your choice.
1. Thoroughly cleanse your kitchen and let go of any unhealthy foods. Having fresh energy in your kitchen is like creating a fresh new start for the energy in your body; do not overlook the power of this powerful space!
2. Bring fresh herbs like basil, rosemary or mint (representing the Wood feng shui element), ideally in clay pots (representing the Earth feng shui element) and find a beautiful place for them in your kitchen.
3. Always have fresh water in your kitchen. A good idea is to place a row of spring water bottles (representing the Water feng shui element) that you use and replenish as necessary. Our bodies are over 80% water and on a deep, unconscious level the sight of clean fresh water always rejuvenates our personal energy. Of course, it goes without saying that you should also drink a lot of water!
4. One of the popular classical feng shui cures for good luck and vibrant, fresh energy is to display 9 oranges (representing the Fire feng shui element) in a round metal bowl (representing the Metal feng shui element.) You can also go for other representations of these two feng shui elements, choose what speaks to you the most.
5. Be sure to have fresh air in your kitchen (aerate it often), as well as let a lot of natural light in. This sounds simple, but I have been in way too many kitchens with stuffed air and terrible quality of light. If you cannot have natural light in your kitchen, work with several layers of lighting to create a body-friendly light energy.
These simple tips will help create a better quality of energy in your kitchen; this is similar to having a strong support system for all your health-related goals. Once you have more time - and more energy - you can go deeper with feng shui and create a good energy flow in your whole house.
What would be the next step after you have created good feng shui in your kitchen? Making sure you have good feng shui in your bedroom, or course!
