How do you define what makes a good home environment? Do you find peace and comfort every time you walk through the front door? Do you feel inspired by each of the items in your home? Would you say that everything in your house in peaceful, calm and organized? If so, then you are already a master of Feng Shui. If not, this article will help you ensure that you can describe your home in this way.
Feng Shui, meaning "Wind and Water" in Chinese, is the ancient art of creating balance and harmony in our lives through the effective management of our environment. Because we are connected to our environment, our environment is a reflection of our lives. For example, if you change or move something in your home you will experience a corresponding change in your life. Using this principle, you can apply Feng Shui to get more of what you want and less of what you don't want. So if you want to feel less stressed or have more balance in your life, then you first need to set up a conducive environment for that to take place.
A major reason why you may not have a peaceful and organized home environment yet is clutter. It is important to free your home of anything that does not reflect the environment you want. A few good questions to ask yourself to help decide what is clutter and what is not are:
• Do I really love this item?
• Does it enhance my life in any significant way?
• How often do I use it?
The answers to these questions will tell you whether or not it is truly time to let something go. So clear the clutter, and pursue a life of harmony between yourself and your environment so that the energy surrounding you work with you rather than against you.
