9 More Feng Shui Tips
If you checked out our previous article on Feng Shui, you know that it’s the Chinese laws for the arrangement and orientation of things and how they affect the flow of energy. That was back in March, at the very start of spring, but now where headed into the last month of the summer heat. In Feng Shui, summer is associated with the ‘reputation and fame’ aspects of our lives, essentially receiving recognition and admiration from family, friends, and associates. Here’s 9 more Feng Shui tips to help you end the summer right and transition into an epic Fall (not epic fail). [separator size=”30″]
- The ‘reputation and fame’ sector of your home is located in the back middle section of your home and is (appropriately) represented by the fire element. Decorate this space with red/orange candles and objects.
- Accent your home with wood elements, as wood fuels fire. Plants, decor, or even art and photography that portrays the woods work well.
- Incorporate “pointy” objects like bamboo, cactus, or things with sharper edges, which adds even more yang, or masculinity, to the fire.
- Since it is the reputation and fame time of year in feng shui, this is pretty self explanatory: place the awards, trophies, or certificate you’re most proud of in this area.
- This is just a general Feng Shui rule, and should be followed every time of the year. Make sure you declutter all areas (especially the ‘summer’ area) to completely allow the chi to flow smoothly.
- Bust out the pumpkins during the first week of Fall, in Feng Shui they’re regarded as good luck and protect against negative energy.
- Speaking of fruits apples are a sign of peace. Fill a bowl with them on the kitchen table. Also incorporate the traditional fall dec0rations of gourds, pine cones, and acorns, which all represents good health and long life.
- In Feng Shui, fall is the season of the metal element, which represents binding, intelligence and mental strength. This can be in the home by adding oval decorations, the shape that represents and emulates metal.
- Naturally the colors that best represent metal are silver, gray, and black. Adding such components to your home will attract positive energy that reflects the autumn season.
