Do you think arranging your rooms concurring with an age-old Chinese system are too out-there for you? Think again. There are plenty of elements in this practice that are completely down-to-earth. Feng Shui interiors have ensured that each and every room in your house feels calm and happy.
So what is Feng Shui?
It’s a practice based on the idea that our homes are a reflection of what’s happening inside us. The major aim of feng shui is to get your environment in alliance with what or who you are and where you want to head in your life—to harmonize your energy with your home’s energy.
How can you achieve it?
You could begin with careful consideration of what you bring in, how you decorate your rooms, and how you uphold the place. Everything has energy, even inorganic and non-living objects. Feng Shui helps guide that energy and let it flow freely through your home.
You could bring balance and beauty into your home with basic Feng Shui tips. Good Feng Shui in your home using plants will help attract nourishing, as well as delight all your senses.
With plants you can cultivate and encourage your intuition and flexibility. Plants will also enable you to open up and expand. Feng Shui encourages the use of soft plants with less or no protruding edges. If your seating areas are not supported from behind with a solid wall, you can use a plant to protect your back.
It is fundamental that your plants are well cared for, dirt free, and healthy. Also, generally choose plants with soft round leaves like jades, they don’t feel as antagonistic or produce as many poison arrows as plants with spiky leaves. And to gently remind you, don’t put live plants or flowers in your bedroom; the energy is too active.
With plants around us, the Chinese practice helps us create an environment that will strengthen us and attract the energies to manifest our well-being.
