Fung Shui

Fung Shui is an ancient Chinese tradition that practices arranging the environment that harmonizes with you and your energy. It’s a common practice that many think is impossible but really, with a few simple starter steps, you can do to help align your space and possibly bring a little luck into your home. Here are some tips on how to start:

            1. Declutter – Remove any items you find irrelevant or do not love.

2. Get the 5 Fung Shui Elements – Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water are the essential five elements of Fung Shui. Each one brings a certain aspect in your life such as prosperity or health. Incorporate them in designs and objects in your home. You can learn more here.

3. Natural Light and Good Air Quality – The more quality air and natural light in your home the better your Chi (Fung Shui energy) is.

4. Kua Number and Lucky Directions – Kua numbers are very complexed. Think of it as the number the divides people by their energy. It is essential to find your Kua number in order to find your lucky directions, which will help you arrange furniture and objects in your home based on directions. You can find out more about Kua numbers and lucky directions here.

In addition to Fung Shui, you can take more traditional approaches to adding some luck to your home. Symbols like four leaf clovers, ladybugs and horseshoes can be incorporated into your decor to help bring a little good fortune. 

Best of luck to you!
