Do you believe in the ancient Chinese philosophy of Feng Shui? If you don't know what that is, it is essentially a practice based on the notion that our homes are a mirror of what's happening inside us, and the purpose of it is to get your surroundings in alignment with who you are and where you want to go in life. It is the harmonizing of your energy with your home's energy. Feng Shui principles are used to attract certain qualities and elements into our lives by the careful choice and arrangement of furniture and accessories. With Feng Shui, it is believed that you can attract love, prosperity, and even wealth into your life.
We could all use a little more wealth in our lives–even the most prosperous among us. So that's why we've created this piece, so even you can bring in some more money! By following these seven tricks, you'll be well on your way to bringing in more positive energy into your home!
In order to always keep positive energy flowing in your home, get rid of everything you no longer need or use regularly. These include all things from unused tables and chairs to old cushions and clothes. You can sell them, or better yet donate them. Wealth is believed to be cyclical, so the more you spread your wealth (no matter how grand), the more you will receive.
Use colours such as red, green, and violet to attract prosperity. You can use these colours for anything– the walls, furniture, or accent pieces like cushions. Here we see the implementation of white, which denotes purity, and red, which activates these energies. The two together make for an excellent combination—just ask any interior designer.
You can't very well attract good energy into your home with an uninviting entrance. You should always make sure that access to your home is appealing, harmonious, and clean. Plant life, bright and warm lights, and an unblemished door are important if you want to attract wealth.
Even if you're not trying to follow the ideals of Feng Shui, you should always keep a clean kitchen. The kitchen is where people meet for meals and socializing. Add a nice flower arrangement to the space or set out a bowl of fruit and prosperity will be on its way!
This is another home design element that we stand behind whether or not you're trying to attract more wealth into your life. Clutter is an eye-sore and a stress marker. It traps negative energy in its bundles and brings nothing unfavourable spirits. Once you get rid of these mess piles, your home will be more open to positive energy.
Your bedroom is your sanctuary for rest and relaxation, which is why you want to employ softer tones. Keeping the area bright will also help, and make sure that any mirrors you have here are not facing the bed. In Feng Shui, it is believed that when the mirror faces the bed, it creates insomnia because the mirror doubles and bounces back all sorts of energy, disrupting the serenity needed in a bedroom for better sleep.

Our last trick concerns the bathroom. In Feng Shui, it is believed that bathrooms or toilets flush away good energy, but there are ways to avoid flushing out this positivity. Keeping the bathroom clean and ventilated is step one. Step two, make sure the bathroom door is closed, as well as the lid to the toilet, so no good vibes escape. You can also enhance these good vibrations by adding things like essential oil diffusers.
Sure, to some this may sound silly, but when it comes to ancient rituals of the mind, body, and soul, the Chinese really do outclass the competition, so there has to be something to it, right?
