Getting started with feng shui for your house & home can be easy when you start with the house basics and gradually move on to the more complex feng shui levels. To help you get started with good feng shui in your home, here are some helpful feng shui house steps for beginners.
Use Feng Shui in Your Home Decorating
Feng shui can be used in decorating your house with the goal of creating a loving, supportive, fun and happy home. Decorating tips used in feng shui are slightly different than the traditional decorating, but once you start using feng shui, a harmoniously decorated home is yours to enjoy!
Feng shui decorating is basically a way to decorate your home so as to create a vibrant feeling of joy and harmony. Feng shui decorating does not necessarily mean creating a Zen-type home; what feng shui decorating means is that you create an environment that has the best energy to support the specific activity, or activities, intended for that space.
A home office needs an active, vibrant energy of success, while a bedroom will need a soft, sensual energy. You can achieve the desired energies by following basic feng shui principles in your decorating efforts.
Your first step in decorating your home with feng shui starts before the actual decorating process. The absolutely necessary feng shui requirement is to clear the old energy residues and create a strong and clear energy foundation. What does that mean on a practical level?
It means you have to clear your clutter. Decorating a cluttered home makes no sense, from the feng shui point of view. Kind of like applying expensive make-up to an unwashed face. Why would you do that? Only after you have cleared the old energy can you move on to a successful feng shui decorating process. But wait, there’s one more step before you immerse yourself in playing with colors, textures and an endless variety of feng shui cures!
