Our home is a very important place. It’s where we feel comfortable and safe, sharing the best times with our family. But it’s important that our home be clean and have good harmony. To achieve this, we’ll offer several ideas that might be helpful. Up next, we’ll tell you how to create and maintain harmony in your home.
What we’re talking about in this article is feng shui. It’s a system of aesthetics that originated in China, and is based on the Taoist doctrine to improve people’s everyday lives. Its origins are quite ancient, but today it’s still considered to be one of the best ways to decorate and organize the home in a way that makes us feel good.
Have good protection
One recommendation of feng shui is that the home should have a protector behind it. That could mean anything from a hill or mountain, another house, or just a small building behind your house to make you feel protected and safe.
Create a space out front
It’s also important to have open space in front of the home. The best options are a yard or a garden opposite the main entrance, but a playground or a patio could also work. In any case, you need to create a space to have a feeling of openness.
And pay attention to the sides
In addition to having protection in back of your home, and a space out front, you also need to care for the sides of your home. To do this, you should have something like a building or a neighboring house to create a stable balance and harmony. Just like an armchair, your home also needs support on the sides.
Always seek protection
Because of the above reasons, it’s not a good idea to build your home on top of a mountain or rent the top floor of an apartment building. That’s because these places have no protection, on any side. Your home should always be bounded and secure.
Look around outside
Always be aware of your surroundings, beyond the immediate bounding spaces, because there are other things that can have a negative effect on the harmony of your house. Pay close attention to things like utility poles, antennas, cables, etc. that could produce negative energy. And take care of the trees in front of your house. Don’t let them block your footpaths or entryways. Make sure that their branches don’t threaten your home.
Your front door
Take good care of your front door, as it is one of the most important aspects of the home. Try to keep it in good condition, always painted and varnished, visible from the road, with a few plants on either side for appearance. Remember that your front door is the “face” of the home, so it should always look welcoming and well kept.
The interior is also important
According to feng shui, the inner path through our home should be curved or winding, rather than straight. It should be free from any obstacles like trees or plants, otherwise they can create negative energy.
Beware of mirrors
Although you can have mirrors inside the house, it’s best if you keep them covered. For example, if you have a mirror in a room we recommend placing it inside a closet or armoire so that it’s only visible when you need it. Avoid seeing the mirror when it’s no longer in use.
Don’t forget to keep things clean and orderly
Our final and most important tip is to keep your home clean and tidy at all times. Don’t let dirt or odors contaminate the house, and avoid clutter or things scattered throughout the house. Every item should have its place, and should be cleaned often. Of course, you don’t need to go overboard with cleaning – but be sure to keep the interior of your home in good condition. All these tips will make you feel more comfortable, happy, and secure.
