The intention you put behind your actions is very important, so use a very positive and hopeful energy as you apply Feng Shui cures. Start simple. Tackle the area which represents what is most urgent in your life right now, taking it a step at a time, and as you see results, your energy is elevated. You are inspired to tackle more areas of your home or work space.
Originating in China, Feng Shui is an ancient art and science going back as far as 3,000 years. It was widely believed in ancient China that the energy of a land had the power to make or break a kingdom. The ancient Chinese used Feng Shui to identify safe dwelling places for families to flourish and to determine the best burial sites for relatives. In addition, the core concepts of Feng Shui were consulted to determine where to site palaces, government buildings and other public monuments. Whole cities in Chinese have been designed and built around the core teachings of Feng Shui. So this is an art and a science taken a little more seriously than just how to decorate your home.
This energy she speaks of, also known as chi, is the foundation of feng shui. Good quality chi in your home is believed to promote strong relationships, support health and wealth and contribute to a better sense of well-being. If your bedroom is cluttered, has too many bright colors and is positioned poorly, your feng shui (and sleep) will suffer. Here are some of Cho’s feng shui tips for building a peaceful bedroom for better sleep.

Hi, I will rather new to fengshui but I recently moved into a new place. But i felt that Wealth and career has not been improving and Romance is not smooth sailing also. I wonder if I can increase the fengshui so that things can improve positively. I am not certain of the direction. How should I direction my compass from? Should I navigate from the front of the door or from the centre of the house? Hope someone can provide me with better insights to location.
The ancient Chinese method of Feng Shui helps us to balance our homes and create happier, more successful lives, room by room. We often turn our attention to the bedroom, the sanctuary where we can rest and recharge. Having the proper Feng Shui in the bedroom can help your romantic life as well as your ability to rest and to feel in control. You have to know how to keep the chi flowing, and how to deflect any negative energy that may enter your room -- and your life.
The feng shui Money Corner should be clutter-free and tidy, with clean windows. This is the wrong place for an open trash can—if the can must be there, it should have a lid. Avoid bare glass edges in your Wealth Corner, and don’t keep broken or malfunctioning objects in this area. If the Money Corner of the home is a child’s bedroom, it’s important to have a picture of the parents or head(s) of the household on the wall in that room. Otherwise, the child can become too powerful in the home.
Feng shui. It’s one of these things most people have heard of, but fewer people understand. At LOVESPACE, we are all for anything that could help us to live a bigger life so we wanted to learn what Feng Shui is all about. We found that it literally means “wind-water”. But that isn’t very helpful, so we did some more research. We focussed on bedroom Feng Shui, because this is believed to be the most important room in the house to get the energy right in. LOVESPACE have teamed up with the guys over at Simba Sleep to find out how they approach Feng Shui in the bedroom and how you can create the ultimate sleep space at home.
Stand inside your home with your back to the front door.* Look forward. The part of your home in the far left corner is the money sector. The far right corner is the relationship zone. Got it? You work the magic by placing certain items in certain zones; some have symbolic power, others a literal connection to the area. The eight-point system is intricate and layered; feng shui expert Catherine Brophy shares her best feng shui tips for making every room in your house feel calm and happy.
Mirrors are equally beneficial as they relate to careers and feng shui. However, they should not directly face the bed since they can drain your energy. Mirrors are also associated with the water element, which shouldn't be placed in a bedroom. According feng shui guru Lillian Too, the purpose of mirrors is to reflect negative chi energy away from you.
Many of us have those "I’ll fit into them someday" jeans from high school, but letting go of the clothing that we don’t need will give our brains a cue to also let go of other unnecessary things (like weight or harmful people or anxiety). When we have a full closet, we give the universe the message that our lives are complete and we don’t need anything else. It’s astounding what a little space in your closet can do to invite magic into your life.
In feng shui, a mirror can symbolize several different things, depending on its use and what you say when you install it. It is most commonly used to reflect harsh energy away, in which case the shiny, reflective side faces the area where the problem originates. Another use of mirrors is to expand a space, which they do by visually erasing a section of wall. We mostly use small mirrors in feng shui, but when thinking of erasing a wall, imagine the wall covered in one large sheet of custom-cut mirror glass. The wall would visually vanish—replaced with a view of the room. That’s what symbolically happens when you use a very tiny mirror.
Followers of Feng Shui would say that light is our number one nutrient and is one of the most powerful tools for encouraging the right energies. Warm lighting is best for bedroom Feng Shui, as it creates a healing and homely atmosphere to put our minds at ease and help us to relax. Candles are the prettiest way to create warm light in the bedroom, but make sure you buy toxin-free candles.
In order to create and keep good feng shui energy in your home, it is important to have natural rhythms expressed visually in your decor. It is the energy of inhaling and exhaling, the energy of night and day, summer and winter, yin and yang. What that means on a practical level is that your house has areas that are busy and bursting with bright colors, images and textures, and then it also has areas of visual rest, stillness or repose. A house that is all stillness or all activity (as expressed in its decorating choice) is not a good feng shui house.

I’m hoping you can help me with wealth and health areas of my home. Recently, all of us (kids and parents) have gotten injured and/or sick. Also, our finances are not moving forward. We are trying to buy a house, but face one obstacle after another. I’ve drawn a rough layout of our two story home. We are currently renting. Our landlords had a mirror above the stairs, but removed it when they did some repairs. I’m wondering if that is when the troubles started.

There is a specific money area in feng shui that needs to be treated right, and for this, you have to know the Bagua, or the feng shui energy of your space. Here we are referring to the creation of a small altar/shrine/sacred space that you devote to the energy of wealth. It can be anywhere (except your bathroom, laundry or garage), and as big or as small as you like. Basically, you want to create an area that has the task of collecting wealth energy. Decorate it with meaningful to you items of wealth (jewelry, specific photos, objects of value, etc), as well as good feng shui energy activators such as crystals and plants.


“Feng Shui, that’s just how you decorate your room and the layout right?”. Wrong. There is a lot more to it than that. Feng Shui is a way to encourage positive energy, bring you better fortune and help you live a bigger life. There are many schools of Feng Shui, but the general principe is the same. Feng Shui is a way to balance the energies in a given space, for example a bedroom, linking the destiny of a man to his environment. Powerful stuff.

Things that look like money, but that you can’t really spend, are not recommended in the feng shui Money Corner. This includes objects with dollar signs as their design, as well as fake money, such as from board games or enlarged reproductions of paper money. Don’t store bills that you owe or have paid in the Wealth Corner. They represent money leaving you.


Like many other tips listed here, this tip is more of a modern feng shui approach. Furniture on both sides of the bed should be the same because it promotes feelings of equality and the notion of partnership. No one is having extra space on the nightstand, and there really is no better side of the bed. This seems to me that it’s really one less thing for a couple to fight about.
Speaking of beds, they should always have a headboard. In feng shui, headboards provide a feeling of support in life. If you have a box spring only, you can get a headboard separately, but make sure to attach it very well to the bed. You don’t want it to wobble! When choosing a headboard, go for one that has soft edges whenever possible. Heavy cast-iron headboards or ones that have bars have that same "cutting" energy you're trying to avoid in such a relaxing space. Instead, I recommend ones that are made of fabric, as they provide a soft, inviting feel. Platform beds are great too, but make sure that the platform has no sharp angles where you could hurt your shins.
Learning what not to do in your bedroom is as important as learning what to do! Sometimes, this can even be a powerful shortcut into really feeling good versus bad feng shui energy in the bedroom, and knowing, on a deeper level, what makes a good feng shui bedroom. Below are many feng shui "what not to do" tips that will help you, in an easy and entertaining way, to create good feng shui!
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.
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.

When decorating the room it might be nice to incorporate a classical Feng Shui charm into the room. Think about adding something from the following list to add to the room’s energy. You could create a Feng Shui aquarium, add Chinese coins to the room. A wealth vase will also help your money area. The laughing Buddha is also another piece you could add to the room, besides also adding citrine or pyrite crystals to help reflect the energy around the room.


Followers of Feng Shui would say that light is our number one nutrient and is one of the most powerful tools for encouraging the right energies. Warm lighting is best for bedroom Feng Shui, as it creates a healing and homely atmosphere to put our minds at ease and help us to relax. Candles are the prettiest way to create warm light in the bedroom, but make sure you buy toxin-free candles.
Hanging on to dear Aunt Millie’s china because she left it to you when she died? Kept all the hideous throw cushions your in-laws gave you because you want to show them respect when they come over? Unless you love such objects, they could be dragging you down. Your home should reflect the person you are, and should hold objects you consider to be an extension of yourself–not other people. And certainly, anything that you dislike but hang on to will unconsciously pester you like a sore tooth. Get rid of it.

Things that look like money, but that you can’t really spend, are not recommended in the feng shui Money Corner. This includes objects with dollar signs as their design, as well as fake money, such as from board games or enlarged reproductions of paper money. Don’t store bills that you owe or have paid in the Wealth Corner. They represent money leaving you.
Wood is the element for the Wealth Corner, and the best way to represent wood is with growing plants. Plants with stiff, pokey leaves are to be avoided. This also applies in the far left corner of your backyard. Dried plants are very bad in any part of the home because they say dead. They once had life energy coursing through them, but that life is gone, and they’re now dead. Artificial plants don’t have that problem because they were never alive. Just keep them clean and very realistically arranged. I mentioned a little earlier that an image of water and plants growing is ideal for feng shui Money Corners. For many people that is the most feasible thing to do. It’s quite easy to find plant pictures, so keep looking until you find one that you like that also shows water.
Using plants with red or purple flowers will add to the effect. Thorny plants or plants with stiff, pokey leaves should be avoided. Bamboo is considered very lucky in feng shui because of its strong growth. Bamboo is usually placed in a glass pot, but if your plant is placed in a ceramic pot, tie a metal coin to it. Your bamboo plant should have eight stalks, as eight is the most powerful number for wealth and abundance. A money plant also represents money and prosperity.

Can you clearly visualize your life with the man or the woman of your dreams? How would that look, feel, taste, smell? Bring that sense into your home with specific images, feng shui colors, use scents (preferably pure essential oils) that reflect the energy you want. Feng shui love tip: Avoid sad, broken heart images if you want to attract a happy love relationship. After the feng shui basics above, you can try more advanced feng shui tips, such as:
Less is more. It is very hard to feel relaxed and get positive energy from a room that is full of clutter. Our LOVESPACE Clutter and Hoarding Survey 2017 found that a whopping 80% of people say their mood is affected by clutter. Make sure you only have things in your bedroom that you need and that bring you joy. Old books that you know you aren’t planning on reading again any time soon, big suitcases, fancy dress… do you really need these things taking up valuable space in your bedroom? Cut the clutter. Store, donate, recycle or bin any items that you don’t need on a regular basis.

One of the most spiritually damaging things is clutter, whether you see it or not. Chaos is the enemy of Feng Shui and even the mess under your bed can affect the energy flow in your bedroom. Take some time to clean the area under of your bed and you may feel a positive change the next time you go to sleep. Besides, clutter creates stress and we should keep it to a minimum as much as possible.

Another way that energy can leak out of a home is through wall sockets. If something is plugged into the socket, there is no leak, but if the holes are visible there is leakage. In some homes when the weather is cold, you can feel cold air seeping in through bare sockets on outside walls. That’s not energy coming in—that’s your money going out via your heating bill. The solution is simple—use opaque socket protectors or covers, the kind that prevent babies from sticking things into the sockets. Often, the socket covers are translucent, and those aren’t best for feng shui purposes. Opaque ones are better, preferably in the same color as the socket plate.
In feng shui, a cluttered house equals a cluttered mind. Even worse, clutter literally sucks up the energy in a space. "You may think you're hiding your clutter, but the closet has as much of an effect on energy flow as anything else," says Whitehurst. If there's clutter somewhere in your home — even tucked away in an attic — then it's also cluttering your head, as well as the rest of your body.
Is your bedroom designed in such a way to energize you every day? Or, is it completely cluttered, creating a place of negative energy? The art of Feng Shui can help you create a more positive and calming environment, in which you can get the rest and relaxation you need to survive the work week and other stressors we face every day. Not sure how to properly Feng Shui your bedroom? We have you covered. Here are some of the tips to help you create a revitalizing environment.

Being thoughtful about how you arrange and use your bedroom is especially important. It's where you sleep, and adequate amounts of quality shut-eye are vital to health and well-being. If you share your home with a spouse or partner, note that a bedroom with good feng shui is thought to strengthen the bond between a couple and attract love. So for the sake of better sleep and a boost to your relationship, consider these tips for improving the feng shui in your bedroom.


What does a good feng shui energy foundation mean? It is basically a set of building blocks on which all other good things can be created. There are several factors that make a good feng shui energy foundation for your bedroom. The first one is the abundance of fresh, clean air, second is the quality of natural light, followed by the “no clutter” rule and the “no electrical equipment” rule.
We need help with abundance cures. We get a little ahead, and then something always happens to put us back behind. This is a rental house that had much negative energy when we moved in. We seem to have taken care of that, but the lack of abundance remains. We spend most of our time on the screened in back porch, some in the fireplace room, and none in the living room. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/dddd967a29fce3473360756ae5ae92f56206d76355694a3b0360746cb922f471.jpg

In a practical world, televisions and laptops are often a necessary evil in your sacred bedroom space. It's impossible to get away from technology, so a compromise solution is to place your TV in an armoire or another cabinet that can be closed when you're finished watching TV for the night. Close your laptop when not being used and store inside a nightstand or drawer. That way, they are at least out of sight and your space while you rest.
Even if you follow all these tips and received help from Feng Shui Masters, YOU still have to work on finding love or to improving your current relationship. Meaning, you still need to be attentive to your partner’s needs while making sure that both of you spend time together. You are the one that can make the difference, despite all the obstacles that come to you.

The south-west corner of your home is your love corner, and if you are truly working on your love feng shui, then you need to work out which corner that is. Declutter this area and make sure that it contains no mirrors, plants or work-related objects, these kinds of things don’t make for good relationship corners. If you want to rev it up a notch, add some pink, red or white to the corner too. These colours are fortuitous in the love stakes according to feng shui.

Yin and yang are not fixed terms. They are relative—one thing is in comparison to another thing. A lake is inherently yin because it is water. Niagara Falls is water, too, but it’s more yang because the water is moving quickly. An iceberg is also water, but it’s more yin than the lake because the water is completely stationary. You are inherently yang because you’re a living being, but you’re more yin when you’re sleeping and more yang when you’re running.

It’s time to start a new Pinterest board. According to feng shui principles, Cho recommends opting for a sturdy headboard, preferably a wooden one, with no bars or holes on it. “The headboard keeps you connected with your partner and stabilizes you in bed. Not having a headboard makes your relationship feel more temporary,” Cho says. And if you’re single, a sturdy headboard can help attract a strong and secure relationship, proponents believe. If buying a new headboard isn’t in your budget right now, some feng shui experts suggest adding two large pillows behind your sleeping pillows. This makes for a comfortable and soft DIY “headboard” in the meantime. But Cho warns, “It’s better to have a headboard if at all possible. If you can’t afford one, then you can try the pillows but it’s not a substitute for a solid headboard.”
Be sure your feng shui home trinity (bedroom, bathroom, kitchen) is treated well. You need good feng shui energy in these three very important areas of your home. If the energy in one of them is low or unbalanced, it will sooner or later reflect in the energy of your love relationship. Use smart feng shui tips to help you improve this feng shui trinity.
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.
