Feng shui is an ancient Chinese practice where arranging your living space can create a balance in your life and bring positive energy to you and the ones around you. If you are looking for a fresh start this new year, a little feng shui in your home would be a great place to start. Here are a few ways you can establish harmony in your home.

Let Your Entry Way Shine

Your entryway represents how energy can enter your home and life. Bringing feng shui into your home starts by decluttering any mess you have near your front door. So many items can accumulate near your doorway through the years, so instead of moving all your things, try to unclutter the area. Making the space more inviting and open creates a place for energy to enter. Having a well-lit entryway can also bring great vibes as well.

Keep Your Windows Clean

Having clean windows will not only let more sunlight in, it will also create a more vibrant and positive feel to your home. According to feng shui, windows symbolize the voice of children and the eyes of adults.

Show Your Doors Some Love

Feng shui says that doors represent your voice and communication. Doors are also a symbol of opportunities that can be present in your life. Making sure your doors can open to 90 degrees means you will receive a portion of opportunities that life has to offer. Also, make sure your doors can open and close with no issues. This will affect how energy finds you.

Stay In Command

The commanding position is the most important principle in feng shui. This position represents your life. Your bed represents you, your desk represents your career, and your stove represents your wealth. When you are in either of these spaces, make sure you can see the door without being directly in line with it.  This is so you can see the door, making it a commanding position. The feng shui believes this will help you be in command of your life.
