10 Tips For Feng Shui Decorating

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

Feng shui refers to the ancient Chinese belief that focuses on arrangement and placement of things on certain places.

Though there are very few written documentation about the first existence of feng shui, it has survived time and tradition by oral communication and actual practice by the Chinese people.

One might notice that several regulations are derived from common sense and intuition. For example, a cluttered room or office is believed to imbibe bad feng shui, which, in actuality would really hinder productive work due to stress that might be a result of inability to find needed documents from a cluttered table.

Literally meaning “wind and water” feng shui is not simply a style of decorating. Most feng shui practices coincide with various decorating or arrangement styles. In fact, a certain room that accommodates feng shui regulations is more visually attractive and well-coordinated than those that had not been subjected to its practices.

Arrangement of furniture or other materials are considered so as to allow the entrance and passage of “good energy” or chi.

Good feng shui means that the arrangement coincides with nature. For example, the sink should not be placed beside the stove since the water (sink) puts out fire (stove), meaning one element overpowers the other.

Below are 10 tips taking into consideration Feng Shui decorating principles:

1. If possible, before a purchase of any house or a property, the surrounding area must have the following “support”.

The first on the list is to look for a “Tortoise” behind the house. This pertains to any man made or natural formation that generally gives a look of protection or support to the over-all structure of the area. A mountain, low trees and a simple fence may do.

Still, all of these must not be higher than the house so as to obstruct sunlight.

A “dragon” must be found on the left side. It would be better if it is higher that the front of the house. A simple fence or a tree might do for its place

A “white tiger” should be on the right side of the house. If it is higher than the “dragon”, it would be good for the women of the house. If the “tiger” is lower than the “dragon”, is good for the men.

A “phoenix” should be in front, the best of which is a river or a circular flower bed. This may also be a tree or another house.

Simply put, the stated four sides can be attributed to the four sides of a car, it should have 2 side doors, a rear and a low bumper to have a good view of the front lane. All of which are designed to protect the person inside the car.

2. The garden at the back of the house should always be larger than the one at the front

3. Spiral staircases should be avoided. If it is already installed, the bad energy emanating from this can be toned down by placing a faceted crystal sphere.

4. Overhead beams. In general, beams have the notion of carrying the weight of what it supports. Having a lot of beams inside the house (especially if it is exposed) may be the cause of many problems, according to feng shui.

Focal points such as beds, working table, children’s study desk should not be directly under beams since this carry around a heaviness sort of feeling to the individual who works or rests under the area.

5. The general outlook of the whole area (land, plants and house structure) must be in good condition and is easy on the eyes.

Good indications are healthy-looking plants and trees around the area and that the house is not so irregularly shaped (with lots of extension protruding from various sides).

The usual square or rectangular shaped houuses are still always the best kinds.

6. “Poison arrows” that is directly in front or pointing to the house should be avoided. A good example is having a lamppost or telephone poles that are directly at the front of a house or is directly across the street of one’s home.

To tone down the bad energy that comes from it, a Bagua mirror should be placed in the area where a poison arrow is directed.

7. Long narrow paths that lead to the front door must be avoided.

8. The front and back door should not be facing one another, that is, it should not be in a straight line.

This allows the good energy to only pass through the house.

9. Additional structures that overpower the look of the house should be avoided. This includes swimming pool, gazebos and ponds.

10. Trees at the front of the house must not be higher than the highest point of the house. The ideal length of trees is 6 feet.

Creating the Perfect Garden Using Feng Shui

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

When you think of Feng Shui, you mainly associate it with the home or the office, rearranging the furniture and surrounding yourself with objects that attract good luck. However it is not only indoors that can be designed using Feng Shui. You can also use it to create the perfect garden environment.

If a garden is part of your property, Feng Shui should be incorporated into it. That will really help to bring you the best results. We all like our gardens to look impressive and beautiful. It allows us to appreciate our environment a lot more and it helps to release positive energy that helps us flourish. Feng Shui gives us the tools needed to create the most positive outside environment and the best part is that you don’t need a huge garden to use Feng Shui arrangements.

Incorporating Feng Shui into the Garden

One of the main factors that you have to take into account when it comes to Feng Shui is that clutter is always a bad thing. This also applies to the garden. If you have a lot of clutter outside of your doorway you won’t attract good energy. Make sure that the entrance to your home looks welcoming and tidy. Also make sure you clean up once Winter is gone. The cold weather and the snow will cause leaves to stick to your lawn and in your flower beds. Once you have tidied everything away, you can truly start to incorporate Feng Shui into the garden.

If you want to plant trees in your garden, aim to plant them at the sides and around the back of your garden. Don’t plant them too close to your home as, although they are fantastic producers of positive energy, they can overshadow the home and look a little too imposing if placed too close. There should always be plenty of natural light shining into your home, so don’t place anything in the garden that will block out the light.

To draw positive energy into your garden, it’s a good idea to attract birds and butterflies. You can do this by providing a birdbath and plants that attract butterflies. These animals tend to bring positive energy with them, which will help you in your Feng Shui garden goal.
Also apply the Ba Gua to your garden. A lemon or orange tree in the Wealth Area is fabulous to attract prosperity to your life. A fountain or pond is also an amazing thing to have in your garden or front lawn to the left of your front door. Also make sure that you don’t have a tree directly in front of your front door or this will block the entrance of energy to your house.

If you like cacti, never have them inside your home. Instead, try to put them outside the windows, where they will act as protectors of the home.

Statues are also a wonderful addition to your garden, but if you are single, try not to use a statue depicting a single person, try to use pairs of things. Such a statue would do wonders in your Love and Relationships Area. A statue of children playing in your Children and Creativity Area is another option.

Finally, remember that water is the “blood” of your home. Make sure there are no leaks in your sprinklers
or anywhere else, since this will be draining your wealth.
If you live in an apartment and you don’t have a garden, but you have a balcony, make sure you don’t use it as a storage area. Apply all the same principles only at a smaller scale.

The idea is to make your garden, or balcony, as peaceful and relaxing as possible. You can spend months creating the perfect home using Feng Shui techniques. However, if that area isn’t arranged properly, you might be wasting all the efforts that you made inside the home.

Once you have created a nice peaceful garden setting, you will find that it really helps to rejuvenate the mind as well as the body and nothing but good energy will come into your home.

Enhance your Personal Relationships With Feng Shui Love Tips

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

Life is not a bed of roses and the same can be said about relationships. It would be unwise to expect the emotions between various individuals to remain at the same, steady level at all points of time and disagreements are bound to arise. In addition, when anger or jealousy raises its ugly head, then all love seems to fly out of the window. At times like this, we need a balancing effect to smooth out the ruffled feathers of the quarrelling couple. The ancient Chinese practice of Feng Shui can help in creating perfect harmony in every personal relationship, besides other aspects of life like health, wealth and career. Feng Shui love tips if properly implemented can help to balance the yang (male) and yin (female) energies and bring the elements in perfect harmony with each other.

Feng shui love principles can be applied for any situation, whether you are a single person waiting for love to enter your life, or even if you are already in a relationship with a partner and are looking for ways and means to enhance the bond. The south west area of our living space defines the personal relationship area and Feng shui love tips work towards enhancing that aspect of our lives. Colors like passionate red and pink in our bedroom or the southern area of the house help to bring the loved ones closer to each other. It is also advisable to keep a pair of mandarin ducks in the bedroom where the couple sleeps. It helps to bring about greater love and understanding among the partners.

If you want to attract love into your life you could try having peonies in your house. If the real flowers are not available, a photograph of the same will do equally well. However, peonies can cause infidelity in the case of married couple, so it is best avoided in that case. Hanging clear crystals in the south corner of the living room can also bring about harmony among the various members of the family. Certain precious and semi precious stones like pink quartz also have relationship enhancing qualities and they also look appealing when worn on the wrist as a charm. It can also be the ideal gift for your girlfriend when you want her to be in your life forever.

Simple things like the d├ęcor and furnishings of the house can also make a deep impression on your mindset and the related behaviour. In order to promote harmony among family members, it is important that the furnishings in the living room and bedroom have round and soft edges rather than hard and pointed ones. Choose soft colors like soothing pink for your bedroom and light scented candles and incense sticks in the house to ensure the flow of chi (energy) smoothly among the many rooms. An important point to be considered while implementing any Feng Shui tip is that it should be done only under the guidance of an experienced professional. Keeping this in mind you can safely implement Feng Shui love tips to build harmonious and loving relationships in your life.

what simple things can i implement to feng shui my house?

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

i understand my stairs face my front door and according to feng shui principles, this represents my money going straight out the door (which i can vouch for!). Is there something i can do to counteract this and are there any other simple things i can do/implement to ensure my house is feng shui-ed?

Yes, this isn’t the best arrangement – but it can be fixed! A couple of solutions are: hang a crystal above the door frame inside, also put a solid heavy object at the bottom of the stairs such as a small piece of furniture, planter or small statue. All this will slow down the energy going out the door. There’s more easy to use tips and Feng Shui advice on this webpage:

What are the correct materials to use in an outdoor Feng Shui garden?

Sunday, October 30th, 2011


there is really no correct materials in fengshui… the secret in using fengshui in a garden is having a good formation like where to put the rock/ mountain or use still and flowing water to activate a certain energy. i am not talking about if you put a rock here and a water there, energies are activated. things are more complicated. in fengshui, you need to calculate where is the good energy combinations using flying star technique. to do this each area/ your whole house is divided into 3 rows and 3 columns like a tictactoe grid, then in each box, there are 3 numbers corresponding to time/base, water and mountain; all 3, each flies fom 1 to 9, having each box with 3 number combinations. each number represents an element and an energy. so if you have 8-1-8, it means that the area is best for money, not for raising a child. so you might want to make it into an office. and put a rock and a flowing water feature to activate it. then a 7-2-9 has a lot of fire in it, you might want to keep it quiet from movements and put a still water feature to lessen the fire. another thing, regarding water, it is also important at what direction the water is coming from esp in the form of a creek, the direction at which it flows and where it is going. i also like to emphasize that fengshui is all about directions, degrees (360 of them) and precision, that is why it is expensive to hire a fenghui auditor, not about materials and where you put them.

most books published in fengshui are fakes, most don’t even touch 10% of the whole thing. if you’re really serious about it. find a good master who offer lessons. my master (peter leung) offers classes in singapore, you may want to visit his website www.fenghsuisos.com. or if you just want a book regarding flying star, get a book by eva wong. her book is one of the best.

What’s a good gift for someone into feng shui?

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

That isn’t a feng shui book?

Crystals are a great gift for anyone into feng shui.
These can be used to bring energy to any area of their home because they wish to activate.
Besides, they look so pretty when you hang them in a window. The light that is reflected into the room bringing rainbows and interesting light patterns.
