Feng Shui Basics

Applying feng shui basics in the home need not be that complicated.  There are some ways in which this ancient practice can be used to make the home flow with positive energy or chi.  Here are some of the basic feng shui practices that you need to know and can easily apply to make your home (as well as your life) filled with positive chi.

Light, Air and Feng Shui.

In order to fill your home with good chi, you need to have good quality air and adequate lighting.  In feng shui, it is believed that chi flows through with the help of air as well as natural light.  Because of this, it is essential to make use of these two elements to ensure that your home flows with good chi.  To allow the good energy into your home, open your windows often to let natural air flow through.

You can also use air purifying plants or an air purifier at home to make sure that the air remains clean and pure.  Also try to allow as much natural light into your home to allow good chi to fill your home.

Unclutter Your Home.

Clutter is a known obstacle to the flow of chi.  It can have an effect on health and quality of life, as well as overall energy levels.  Too much clutter can drain your energy and impede good energy from flowing into your home or life.  Getting rid of the clutter can also help get rid of the negative load that affects your life.  By clearing clutter, you are creating a harmonious environment in your home flowing with good energy.

Know Your Feng Shui Birth Element.

In order to better understand how you can use feng shui to achieve a certain balance in your life and home, you should know your own birth element.  There is a certain element that corresponds to your birth year, and knowing what element your are born in can help you decide the best approach to achieve balance with feng shui.  You can use your feng shui birth element to introduce the different expressions of that element into your home through the use of colors and the balance of the other complementary elements in your life and home.

Know Your Kua Number.

According to feng shui, each person has his or her own kua number, which corresponds to one's date of birth and gender.  The kua number is also an indicator for each person's energy needs.  In the school of feng shui, called the Flying Stars, people belong in either one of two energy groups:  the East or the West.  For the East group, their kua numbers may either be 1, 3, 4 or 9.  For those on the West group, their kua numbers can either be 2,6,7 or 8.

You can use your kua number to determine directions and orientation of structures such as your home decor, or where you face when working in order to ensure good positive energy to flow.  These feng shui basics can help you start off in making your life and home flow with good chi.
