Feng Shui Do’s and Don’ts for Every Home

Sharing is caring!

When you first start learning feng shui, it might seem like there are a bunch of feng shui rules to follow.

After all, you have to consider energy flow, color, the five elements, balance, lighting, the command position, and a whole lot more!

But instead of making feng shui complicated, let’s break it down to the basic feng shui do’s and don’ts for your home.

It’s really not that difficult to get started when you view it this way.

Plus, it’s a lot more fun!

Feng Shui Basics: What to Do

DO: Declutter/Make Space for Your Dreams

If it feels like your feng shui improvements aren’t working, consider making a symbolic gesture to the universe: making space for your dreams.

The Universe can’t bring you what you want if you’re holding on too tightly to the things you already have.

After all, as Rockefeller said: Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great!

Consider cleaning out one area of your home and doing an intense decluttering session as a way to get the energy moving and show the Universe you mean business.

Give the Universe space to bring you what you want!

DO: Consider all of the Senses

Because every area of your home affects every other area, some things to consider are: colors, light, sound, smell, and touch.

How does each room feel when you enter it?

Does it feel fresh and light and airy?

Do you have areas that feel dark and dreary and that you rarely use?

When you need a change in energy, some easy ways to do that are to open up the curtains (and windows, even for just a few minutes,) turn on the lights, fluff up the textiles or curtains/bedding/throw blankets/pillows.

Add a candle or air freshener or smudge the room.

Play some music to break up the stagnant energy.

You can even vacuum or sweep the corners of the room to get rid of stale vibrations.

Maybe your rooms are full of neutral colors or old colors you no longer love — consider moving them around to different rooms or adding colorful pillows, curtains, or blankets to add a pop of color.

The point is to make your home feel fresh and exciting and full of new energy.

Feng shui principles are all about alignment – making your home a vision board for the rest of your life!

DO: One Thing at a Time

When it comes to feng shui, less is more.

Choose one thing to focus on and work on it a little at a time.

Or if you have the time and energy, you can always go all out and tackle a whole-home cleaning, decluttering, or smudging, but the point is to pick ONE thing and stick to it!

Don’t bounce around applying all sorts of feng shui cures all over your home.

Do one or two things and see how the Universe responds!

DO: Clean/Repair/Fix Before Anything Else

If you just apply one feng shui cure, or buy a crystal and put it in your space, it can actually amplify problems you’re already having.

It’s better to start with the energetic cleansing and intention (even though it doesn’t feel as exciting) and THEN apply a feng shui cure (like a wealth bowl or lucky item) or a crystal.

The good news is that means you can apply feng shui principles to your home immediately, without even buying anything or creating anything new.

DO: Consider Everything Has a Voice

Everything around you is energy. This means everything in your home affects your vibration.

Everything is speaking to you on a subconscious level, whether you notice it or not.

That is why so much of feng shui is about cleaning, decluttering, repairing, and moving the energy in your home.

Those may seem like small things, or you might really want an easy fix feng shui cure, but it’s not going to help much if you don’t cover the basics.

Other things to look for that can greatly affect your energy:

  • Clothes you don’t wear (they can hold you in the past)
  • Old pictures reflecting past versions of you or past relationships (especially if you’re having trouble moving on in life)
  • Books that reflect issues you’ve overcome or things you’re no longer interested in
  • Home furnishings that you hate but feel like you can’t get rid of
  • Old vision boards or planners that no longer fit where you’re going
  • Dead or dying plants (no plant hospitals – especially in areas you’re trying to improve!)
  • Anything else in your home that you feel negative feelings about every time you look at it – those feelings spill over into the energy in your home and can affect everything!
  • Negative tv shows, movies, news – the things you watch in your space can also affect your energy and your home’s energy!

DO: Set an Intention

Any time you work with a feng shui principle, it’s best to set an intention.

This way every thing you do helps you accomplish something you want.

Intentions can be anything from: I would like more money, to I would like a new job, to I just want to feel better in my home….
