Feng Shui For Family To Improve Your Home And Your Energy

Image title

As a mom, you have no shortage of responsibilities, and the energy of your home can be easily overlooked. The ancient art of feng shui can help you transform your home from busy and buzzing to calm and serene with some simple decluttering and furniture rearrangement.

Rearrange Your Living Room

As the heart of your home, the flow of energy in your living room is essential to your family's overall energy. To create a cozy, nurturing space, start with a seating area where you can connect and relax together. The couch and chairs should be arranged close together for easy conversation, without having to talk loudly to be heard.

Place your couch against a wall if possible. Feng shui tradition says this anchors the piece, providing a feel of security and safety. If floating in the center of the room is your only option, mimic the anchoring effect by arranging a console and a pair of robust floor lamps behind your couch.

Keep the Romance Alive

The master bedroom should be a safe haven — a place for intimacy, relaxation and sleep. Maximize the romantic energy by decluttering the space. Leave devices in the living room or kitchen to avoid late-night screen time and the danger of bringing work to bed with you.

Aim for a minimalist look in your apartment and eliminate any unnecessary furniture in your bedroom. Place the bed as far from the door as possible. This offers a commanding position with a clear view of the entrance, which helps you feel safe and secure. Not having a lot of clutter and items in the room also helps you keep the space clean and tidy, which prevents pests. If you find signs of pests when you're rearranging your room, be sure to call an exterminator immediately.

Baby on the Way

Pregnancy and nesting go hand in hand. Which room will be the nursery? What's your color scheme? Do you want a theme? The questions are endless. If you're overwhelmed, feng shui can help you narrow down the options.

When choosing a room for your child, feng shui tradition favors the baby's room at the heart of the house, so choose a bedroom toward the center. Make sure it's not over a noisy area of the house, like the garage, or facing a noisy street. When choosing where to place the crib, it's more favorable to place the headboard of the crib against a wall than the side of the crib; this allows for better flow and balance of energy. It should be at the farthest point from the door, though not under a window or floating in the middle of the room.

As far as colors go, avoid using bright, energetic colors like red or yellow. Gray and black are also no-nos. Instead opt for soft, soothing shades of blue, green, plum, pink or beige. Avoid excessive use of patterns and garish cartoon characters, as these can hinder the calming energy in your baby's sleeping sanctuary.
