So without further ado, here are some tips provided by Lubna on why you may consider applying Feng Shui to your home!
Sometimes you will be just sitting somewhere in your house, feeling stressed or not at ease for no obvious reason. Feng Shui has a reason why; it is probably because your eyes are suffering from an unbalanced sight in your surroundings. feng shui suggests that you present some sort of balance into your life in order to be in control with the outer balance of things. Putting your furniture in the right order and correct balance is bound to reflect on your psyche and life in general.
Developing Hawk Eyes
Well, not literally but you develop an eye for all the details and small things. Most people are so stressed about the big things going on in their lives that they start neglecting all the little things that actually matter. If you start to notice and actually spend time taking care of placing things where they should be; it will help you to pay attention to everything else that you thought was not a big deal. Big changes stem from small acts.
A Fresh Perspective on Life
Feng Shui is a fresh perspective that allows you to look deeper into things. This sort of positive energy that is brought by the freshness of the perspective allows you to become ready to welcome new perspectives into your life. It is always healthy and exciting to try new things in life.
If you are already into feng shui and have already taken steps into following its methodology, then you must have read all about it. Reading can always help you to find out more about it, it will give you more knowledge and enrich your mind with fresh information, not only that, but feng shui might offer you the chance to get to know more about the Chinese culture; which is a very dense and rich culture that you will definitely enjoy. Knowledge is not limited to written words, but it also means getting to know people. You will most certainly find a feng shui enthusiast living next door, or maybe a close friend, and if not, then this is your chance to introduce them to this beneficial perspective.
There are two types of energy, on is the positive energy, which is referred to as the “Qi” and the other one is the negative energy, which is called the “Sha Qi” feng shui is carefully designed to attract all the Qi and keep the Sha Qi at bay. If you develop this concept and live by it, then this method of interior decoration is bound to bring you happiness and offer you beautiful decoration that is easy on the eyes. Following all the rules of feng shui will bring you peace of mind and enable you to experience all the good things life has to offer, and if you cannot follow all the rules; then don’t sweat it, just do whatever makes you comfortable, and always remember that feng shui is a style of life, not just a way to decorate.
Historically, feng shui was widely used to orient buildings in an auspicious manner. When feng shui is correctly applied, it creates a certain appeal to the place. There is nothing more comforting than a well decorated house that is not too bright, not too dull and is easy on the eyes. However, be careful that when feng shui is not applied properly, or rather, without common sense, it can even harm the environment, such as was the case of people planting “lucky bamboo” in ecosystems that could not handle them.
