An ancient practice developed over 3,000 years ago in China, Feng Shui is a system of laws that governs spatial arrangement and orientation, balancing energies in any given space in order to assure health and good fortune to all those who inhabit it.
The art of Feng Shui can be used in all areas, whether it’s an office, a store or a home.
When you’re moving into a new house, you might want to put some Feng Shui practices in place, letting the ancient science of harmony and balance envelop your new journey.
DEAL WITH CLUTTER
According to Rodika Tchi, a notable Feng Shui expert, “an orderly space with no clutter is the best foundation for your new home.” What this means is that you should deal with any clutter from your old home before moving into your new one. Get rid of the junk that you don’t need rather than dragging it with you to your new space. Freeing yourself from clutter will open you up to new experiences.
USE SPACE CLEARING
A concept used in contemporary Feng Shui, space clearing allows the release of the old energies that have lingered in your new house from past events.
KEEP ENERGY LEVELS CLEAR
According to Feng Shui tradition, when you have a better connection with your things, you’ll have clearer energy levels. “Decor items that might not seem like clutter can easily become clutter if you do not need them, do not like them or rarely, if ever, use them,” advises Tchi. “Let go of all the items you do not like or need.”
START WITH YOUR KITCHEN
The first place you should energize is your kitchen because of its crucial importance in your health and well-being. You can begin your process here by bringing in fresh herbs, making an aromatic cup of tea and filling a bowl with colorful fruits. By doing this you will bring the energies of positivity, happiness and nourishment to your home, allowing you to take immediate ownership over your new space.
DON’T FORGET YOUR BEDROOM
