Feng Shui Your Home

The new year always represents a new beginning and a fresh start full of opportunities for growth, change, and happiness. One way to bring this energy into your home is by aligning your feng shui, starting with your home exterior.

What is feng shui?

Feng shui is an art and science that dates back more than 3,000 years ago to ancient China. The literal translation of “Feng” is wind, and “Shui” is water; both wind and water are associated with good health in Chinese culture, so feng shui has come to mean good fortune.

Simply put, feng shui is essentially the interaction between humans and their environments, and we are able to influence this good fortune by designing our environments in harmony with the natural flow of energy, or chi.

How to Feng Shui Your Home

In order to achieve good feng shui inside of your home, you have to begin by examining and making changes to the exterior first.

To begin, take a look at the paint color of your home. The main way to achieve balance with your exterior paint is by selecting a color that is complementary to your home’s natural surroundings; this will help your home to blend with its natural surroundings harmoniously.

Next up is the front door. In order to invite good energy to flow throughout your home, you need to have a strong front door, which is considered the portal of energy. When chi, or energy, can easily flow through your front door, you’ll find an abundance of good fortune.
