Feng Shui Tips For The Kitchen

The Kitchen is the most important part of your house. The food you eat gives you energy and this food is prepared in kitchen, so it is important that proper attention is paid here. Here are some tips for your kitchen.

1 Be ruthless. Throw out items , which haven't been used in a year and a half. Unused presents and wrong purchases attract stagnant chi apart from taking up unnecessary space. Just throw throw out or give away items not used in the last year and a half. Get rid of all unnecessary: Clutter attracts stagnant chi resulting in harmful influences in your food. Only have items in the view that are used regularly and do not get in the way.

2 Keep waste baskets clean and out of sight . Stagnant chi can also take the form of smell. Bad stale smells are depleting your kitchen of vibrant healthy sheng chi.

3 Spring clean the cupboards regularly (every 6 or so months); they should be well organised, uncluttered and easily accessible Also, fit cupboards and shelves etc with rounded corners to avoid cutting chi into your body while preparing and cooking your food. Check out your kitchen for any corners pointing at your while preparing your meal.

4 Bowls of fresh fruit and flowers are great ways of attracting quality sheng chi into your kitchen and food. Make sure old fruit and dying flowers are thrown out immediately.

5 Throw out chipped plates. Chipped crockery attracts stagnant chi.

6 Cork flooring is more Yin in energy enabling you to spend more time comfortably in the kitchen. Stainless steel and ceramic tiles are more Yang in nature and can create fast moving chi. This may not be ideal if you want to spend a lot of time in your kitchen. It may leave you feeling drained or tired. Wood surfaces are also ideal for the kitchen.

7 Never keep your stove and sink next to each other; water and fire never go together . But if it can�t be helped then put a small plant or pot of herbs, in between, this will weaken the influence.

8 Empty refrigerator regularly. You'd be surprised what hidden ancient items you will find. The same applies to the stove, clean thoroughly every three months. Burn a candle and empty your fridge. Clean with vanilla essence.

9 Smile at your kitchen!"

As always, ensure anything decaying or broken is kept out of your kitchen and you can be sure of greatly improved feng shui. Great tips!

Easy Feng Shui Tips For Your Home

The art of Feng Shui, or the arranging and positioning of different objects to let the energy flow better in your house and work space, is said to promote health and energy.

Feng shui, which means 'wind and water,' is an ancient Chinese study based on the belief that energy flows in the environment of a home, office or any other place. According to this belief, every building has unique energy characteristics that need to be individually addressed.

A feng shui analysis examines the surrounding environment, the building, how the people interact with the building, and also considers time-related factors. Based upon these considerations, believers say that recommendations can be made on how to improve your relationship with the environment around you. Alleged results include prosperity, health benefits, improved relationships, and all-around well-being.

A feng shui consultant can show you the connection between the interior and exterior of a home or office, and how it relates to the occupant's outlook on life. It can include rearranging furniture to create better 'energy patterns' and eliminating clutter, which blocks creativity and growth. It is also common to use color associations to promote good health and well-being, and quell uncomfortable feelings.

While a professional feng shui consultation can provide you with the strongest results, there are some things you can do yourself. Here are a few small things you can do in your home to make it as harmonious as possible:

# Arrange furniture so you can face the doors while sitting.

# Make the environment much more comfortable by arranging seating areas away from drafts and adjusting lighting.

# Clean up clutter to encourage relaxation and help you to find things easier.

# Widen the front walkway to your home to make it more inviting.

# Place a large mirror behind the stove so that you won't be surprised when someone comes up behind you.

# Hang a mirror up at the end of a hallway so that it does not seem like a dead end.

# Be sure paths between rooms and through rooms are wide and easy to use. This allows you to walk around easily, as well as promotes chi.

# Oil your doors so they don't squeak, reducing mental irritation.

# Add color or art to bring in desired energy.

# Add trees, plants or upward lighting to raise energy."

Enjoy these simple Feng Shui Tips! May your home be blessed.
