Feng Shui for Your Minneapolis – St Paul Condo or Home

Zen For Your Home

Classic Feng Shui can help turn your life around by creating an atmosphere of positive energy in condo or home. The main principle behind Feng Shui is to redecorate your home and/or clear the clutter in order to allow universal energy (chi) to come into your life in a positive manner. Failure to do this, practitioners warn, could potentially invite negative energy into your house and hamper your life and health. Consulting with a Feng Shui expert could help you understand the specific elements associated with the rooms in your home. Depending on cardinal directions, the colors you use to decorate your spaces could either be a blessing or prove disastrous. For those who are simply interested in Feng Shui, or looking to start using it, here are a few simple tips to invite positive energy into your home:

  • The Front Door: The entrance to your home, and the primary place through which the chi would be entering, this is where Feng Shui begins. The important thing to keep in mind is that nothing should be obstructing the chi from flowing into your home. When you stand at your door and look outside, there should be nothing to block the energy. No lampposts, no decorations, no mailbox. If you live in a condo, this applies only to the entrance of your flat. The front door is the primary entrance into a home, and the gateway for opportunities.
  • The Kitchen: A place where you cook food and obtain nourishment to maintain vitality, the kitchen is held of great importance in Feng Shui. The stove is the main epicenter of focus to use Feng Shui in your kitchen. It must always be kept cleaned, even the edges. All the burners of the stove should be used regularly, not preferring one over the other. And even if you do not cook regularly, always be sure to use the stove even if it is just to boil water. By doing this, you can invite positive chi into your life that could improve your career and health.
  • The Living Room: Bright, open spaces that receive a lot of natural light invite good energies. The ideal living room is one that comforts and supports you. Decorating it to create cozy, warm clusters of energy is better than a living room with too much furniture, or no fixed plan of decoration. Avoiding angles in your sitting room, especially in places where people gather is important. Angles include any surfaces like the corners of walls. Placing photographs, items of value or anything that comforts you is a good way to bolster positive chi.
  • The Bathroom:  A place where you cleanse your body and soul, the bathroom embodies the element of water. Soothing, relaxing and purifying, the right combination of elements in your bathroom can create the perfect place to rest and relax. Using mirrors that let you see yourself, candles and bright lights that give the room a warm appeal and aromatherapy and scented oils all help create further relaxation. Turn on your music, close your eyes and surround yourself with visually pleasing things that make your daily baths a spa-like experience.

Feng Shui for Minneapolis-St. Paul Homes/Condos: How Harmonizing Your Surrounding Environment Can Help in Peaceful Living

Feng Shui is the art of harmonizing yourself with the surrounding environment. Energy is all around us. The basic principle of Feng Shui is managing and balancing that energy in the right way. Positive energy can make our lives better. Home is where we spend most of our time. If we can bring positive energy into our home with the help of Feng Shui, it will help us, and our family members to lead a happy, and peaceful life. Life can be stressful in today’s world. By the end of the day, we will be full of negative energy. Feng Shui can help us to get rid of that negative energy. Imagine walking into you home, and feeling peaceful. Following are some points to utilize Feng Shui in your home / Condo.

1. Feng Shui fountain

Place that Feng Shui fountain at the entrance of your home / condo, just outside or inside. Make sure the water is flowing towards the center of your house. In Feng Shui, wealth is represented by water. Appropriate placing of the Feng Shui fountain ensures wealth to flow into your home.

2. Fill the empty space above the kitchen cabinets

If there is empty space above your kitchen cabinets, place some live, or realistic looking green plants to fill the gap, and light it up. According to Feng Shui principle, the empty space above the kitchen cabinets attract dust, and accumulates stagnant energy. The good energy will get stuck there, so the rest of the house will be filled with dead energy, which is bad for you. So, by filling up the gap above the kitchen cabinets, you bring life to this area, and ensures free flowing of good energy.

3. Bed Location

Place the bed in a commanding position, means you will be facing the door while lying in the bed, and not in line with the door. We spend many hours sleeping in our bed. Placing the bed like this is good Feng Shui.

A few other tips for good Feng Shui are as follows.

  • Fix the squeak on your front door (entry door). The sound of the door crying when you go out, and come in can affect your well being.
  • The front door (entry door) represents how good energy enters your home, and your life. So use the front door whenever you can, instead of the garage door.
  • Keep the bathroom door closed, since water goes out from the house, which means wealth going out of the house.
  • Clean all windows, do not let dust settle in. As per Feng Shui, windows represent your eyes to the outside world. Brighten your world with clean eyes.
  • Cover up the TV in your bedroom, as the TV’s active energy disrupts calm energy.

There are many homes/condos in St. Paul and Minneapolis that has already installed Feng Shui techniques for good life.
