Looking for an easy way to incorportate feng shui principles into your bedroom décor? Home accessories offer a low-cost, low-commitment way to test them out in your space. "If you are a feng shui minimalist in how you approach enhancing your bedroom's energy, one area that could be utilized as a soft focal point is with the bed accessories themselves," says Cerrano.
An excellent way to stimulate chi energy for your finances or career is to add a water fountain in your home office or inside the entrance of your home. Make sure the fountain flows into your home or office and never towards the door. You can opt for an aquarium if you prefer. Place it in the North sector of your home or office to stimulate the career sector or in the Southeast to activate the wealth sector. Have at least 8 red fish and 1 black fish, the lucky number of fish, for attracting auspicious chi energy.
If you happen to have an uncovered drain in your shower, bathtub, or any of your sinks – especially one that resembles a black hole – you unfortunately have a powerful visual affirmation of wealth and resources draining too quickly out of your bank account and life. Luckily, the solution is simple: take a trip to the hardware store and get yourself a drain cover.

Love, relationships, and marriage is the life area connected to the southwest bagua area of your home. It is recommended to always express, at least in some of your southwest feng shui cures, the energy desired in your ideal love relationship. If you are looking for love or you want to replenish the energy that nourishes your present love relationship or marriage, the feng shui in this area should reflect this. The feng shui element of the southwest bagua area is earth, so the cures you will bring into this area should be either of the earth element or of fire, the element that nourishes the earth.
Hello Sandi! That is a quite a tough Feng shui situation. We would recommend just doing your best. You cannot fix the things that are out of control, but it will affect the energy of your living environment. If there are certain things you can fix with your landlord’s permission, we would recommend trying to do so. However, there is not really a work around for this Feng shui tip, as broken things in the home do create both an energy and financial blog many times. For the citrine, if you were going to choose one window to place the citrine, you should choose the one which gets the most sunlight. That way the Citrine will be constantly recharged by the light.
The valuable object does not have to be visible. One client hid a ruby under the carpet of the house he had for sale. The house was empty and just sitting on the market. I went to the Money Corner of the home, which was in the master bedroom. I yanked up a very small area of carpet in the corner, and said, “Do you have anything valuable you can put here?” He said he had a ruby, and I replied, “Sir, if you’re willing to put a ruby in this corner, I predict very good things.” The place sold lickety-split, and the seller retrieved his ruby before escrow closed. Many people put expensive jewelry in their Wealth Corner, and that’s perfect. Because costume jewelry is artificial, it would not be good in the feng shui Money Corner unless the jewelry is collectable and valuable in its own right.
In the science of feng shui, the Money Corner is in the far left corner as you enter the home or into any room where you spend a lot of time, such as your bedroom. A studio apartment has only one Wealth Corner, and it’s very powerful since all the living is done in that room. Do the right feng shui in a small place like that, and you’ll probably find yourself in a larger home before too long.
Moving objects are considered powerful cures in feng shui. If you want to bring strong activation to this area, you can find an appropriate decor item that creates a sense of movement here. This can be an item that moves by itself from time to time (such as a wind chime placed outside and moved by gentle wind) or a wind chime that is activated by your touch. In 2019, you can have a small metal bell or a small singing bowl here that you use from time to time to create sound movement. If you are lucky to have a crystal bowl, this is an excellent cure for the East area in 2019!
Similar to meditation, the practice of feng shui is deeply steeped in mindfulness, in slowing down and noticing the details in your life so that you can truly experience the present moment. The words "feng shui" are Chinese and translate to "wind" and "water." Wind is our breath, and humans are almost 60 percent water. Wind and water are vital elements for life, as is feng shui! Historically, feng shui has roots in Taoism and Buddhism. However, elements of feng shui are palpable in every culture across time. For instance, these days we can all feel the difference between a New York City apartment and a quiet hidden cabin in the forest, and we understand that our surroundings greatly affect our energy.
No matter which feng shui bagua school you want to work with (this short video tells you about the two feng shui bagua styles); focus your efforts on your money area and take good care of its energy. This means the overall decor in your money area has the appropriate feng shui colors, items, shapes and images, all expressing the Wood and the Water feng shui elements. A bit of Fire feng shui element decor is always good and serves as an energizing factor.
Limit the presence of crystals in the Southeast area in 2019. Even though crystals are an excellent feng shui cure for the Southeast area, in 2019 they are not ideal here because their element — the Earth feng shui element — is strengthening the Metal element of the visiting negative star. This means in order to limit the negative energy here, it is important to limit the elements that strengthen the negative star.
So, the point I am emphasizing here is that for anything you bring into your home to work as a feng shui wealth cure (or any other cure, for that matter), the item has to have a strong energy connection to you, and not to what other people say. If you do not like something, guess what – it does not like you back! Hardly a good feng shui energy dynamic. Next feng shui wealth color is purple and, just like with gold color, you can bring it with a variety of decor items. From painting to pillows, rugs or big book covers – see if this wealth feng shui color can be genuinely welcomed into your home. Use both colors tastefully and wisely, meaning create simple beauty and decorate with objects that you really like – this is how they will start working for you as intended.
The general rule of thumb for televisions, computers and stereos is that they should not be in the bedroom. However, sometimes the situation does not allow for this. During times of rest, it is best to cover these up with a bed sheet. Electronics emit electromagnetic fields or EMF for short. These emissions can over time affect our central nervous system as well as our health adversely.
I have been following your blog and I would like to seek your help with the problems we are facing. We are not having any peace of mind, unwanted expenses, kids falling sick, not moving ahead in our careers. I apply to jobs and interview well but dont get any offer back. I have attached the house plan which is two level house and covered garage. Thank You for your help.
Closing the window also cancels out the noise from the outside, which is especially important if you live in the cities where you can hear the rumbles of automobile or noise from human chatter. As previously mentioned, the slightest noise can disrupt the quality of your sleep. If you happen to live in a noisy neighborhood or close to main streets, you might want to invest in double-paned windows.

Nightstands aren't just to create “love” in your life. I don’t care if you want to live alone forever; two nightstands create a more supported and balanced bed for everyone. Look at a bed with one nightstand. It feels off-kilter. If you want to have — or do have — a relationship, two nightstands, if nothing else, signal that you want another person to feel more comfortable in your space as well. These nightstands do not need to match, and they don’t need to be traditional nightstands: chairs, stools, benches and card tables can work in this regard.
Hello – I am seeking your advice regarding remedies for a challenging master bedroom space (unable to determine a suitable command position for bed placement). The master bedroom is accessed through a bedroom door however the master bath is first, on the right after entering the master door. A few more steps then you arrive in the master bedroom space and the depth of the room is to the right…away from door.
7 Powerful Feng Shui Tips to Bring Love to Your Bedroom-turn on bedside lampsHere's one last 'secret' Shui tip that I love. Whether you're looking for love or already in a relationship that can use a little spicing up, turn your bedside lamps on at the same time each night and keep them on for at least three consecutive hours. Then, turn them off at the same time. Do this for twenty-seven consecutive days and Feng Shui says that those lamps won't be the only thing getting turned on!
You must have heard me many times saying that the bedroom is the most important room in the house. That is, in a good feng shui house, of course! Instead of focusing most of our attention on grand living rooms and expensive dining to impress others, it would do the house (and us) so much good to create a good feng shui home by keeping our attention on the bedroom. Understand all the guidelines and basics that make a good feng shui bedroom, and then continue to bring lots of love energy into your bedroom.
First, remove everything from your bedroom that could keep you from focusing on love. That includes clutter, dirty clothes, and the cat’s litter box. Another one of my favorite Feng Shui tips for romance is to place objects in pairs in the bedroom, such as candles, hearts, or a vase with two equal size flowers. Hang artwork in your bedroom that has romantic or paired themes, like two chairs facing the sunset or even a picture of two giraffes with their necks intertwined.
Ready to have more money owing in? Concentrate on the southeast section of your home and add things that make you feel wealthy. “I remember one client whose southeast area was her toilet,” Lohan says with a chuckle. “So I said, ‘Don’t worry. What makes it feel luxurious?’ ” The client went on to add new towels, beautifully scented soaps and fresh owers. “It’s about creating abundance and prosperity in that area,” notes Lohan.
When choosing bedroom furniture, opting for pairs can be especially harmonizing. "Two nightstands (one on each side of the bed) is recommended" for optimal feng shui, explains Cerrano. "They symbolize balance and equality in Western feng shui practices." If the layout of your bedroom doesn't allow equal space for this particular arrangement, one side table will do, reassures Cerrano.

In feng shui, chi is what we call life force energy: known to yogis as prana. And the front door is known in feng shui as the “mouth of chi.” In other words, it’s the place where blessings and abundance of all varieties enter both your home and your life. As such, abundant wealth, as well as the consistency of your financial flow, correspond with the appearance and condition of your front door. That’s why a clean, bright red door is an iconic feng shui image: red relates not only to prosperity, but also to vitality, success, and general positivity. But you need not have a red door (unless you want one). Just make sure you love the way it looks, it’s clean, it’s in good repair, it doesn’t squeak or stick, it has full range of motion (nothing is behind it), and the area around it (the entire entryway) is also beautiful and uplifting.
When considering feng shui for creating money and prosperity, remember that purple is the color of wealth. Green’s good too—think of the greenback dollar. Red and blue are also good colors for the Wealth Corner. You certainly don’t have to use them all; I hope that you don’t—the result could be an eyesore. Pick one or possibly two of the colors that you think would look good together in the far left corner of your space and use rich tones of that color. If you’re planning to paint a wall or two anyway, the glory of paint is that it costs no more to add some pigment. Then you’ve got a nice big dose of the right color in your feng shui Money Corner. Consider giving it a try. Live with the right color in the right area for six months, and you’ll probably love the result so much that you wouldn’t consider painting over it.
Ok, let’s move on to specific feng shui wealth essentials. The main feng shui wealth color is gold, gold, gold (of course!) In any decor items – mirrors, frames, lamp bases, trays, coffee tables, etc – whatever your house decor can feel harmonious and happy with! Just be sure to actually love those golden beauties, do not bring something just for the sake of its look if you are not connected to it emotionally.
