Top 10 Feng Shui master tips to re-organise your home

The ancient wisdom of Feng Shui looks at how the life energy or “qi” in the environment, like our homes, affect our life, health, relationships, and prosperity. In this article, we want to share tips that some famous Feng Shui masters, who are sought after by celebrities, tycoons, politicians, and big brands, recommend to help you re-organise your house.

Even if you consider Feng Shui to be a bit ‘wishy washy’ and pseudoscience, adapting some of the ideas will certainly make your house a nicer place to live anyway.

Keep the entrance well-lit

According to Lillian Too, a Malaysian best-selling author and Feng Shui practitioner who advised millionaires in China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan, the main entrance is a focal point that helps good energy flow into the house. Homeowners should keep the entrance well-lit during the day and at night to attract good energy, she advised.

Open both doors

For those with double doors, it is good news because you have a higher chance to draw good luck into your house. Keep the door clean and shiny and open both sides when entering the house; otherwise, your assignments and projects may remain “half” finished according to traditional thought.

Declutter and hide the cleaning tools

Tidy homes also contribute to tidy minds, by helping good energy flow. Piles of dirty clothes, old magazines, messy desks, and unorganized drawers make the energy stagnate and block the flow of luck. Lillian Too also recommends homeowners to keep all the cleaning equipment like brooms and mops out of sight. “Don’t let them sweep your good fortune away,” she wrote on her Facebook page.

Close bathroom doors

Bathrooms always create bad energy wherever they are located in the house. Too said it is best to keep them small and hidden away, as well as keep the doors shut all the time. She also advised against hanging pictures or bringing flowers to the bathroom.

Create balance in your garden

Feng Shui is the art of balancing Yin (light) and Yang (dark) energy. If your garden has flowers, trees and shrubs, which exudes Yin energy, it’s good to add shady corners to attract Yang and create harmony. Too also recommends several auspicious plants such as peonies, the symbol of love, bright yellow Chrysanthemums, the symbol of joy, and narcissi for extra luck.

Bring in some plants

Nature means life, Pun-Yin, a New York City-based Feng Shui master, said in an interview. A live plant can radiate life energy. The Feng Shui master, who has some high-profile clients like Calvin Klein and Donald Trump, recommends incorporating some plants with round leaves such as a Jade plant, a symbol of prosperity, and to stay away from plants with sharp leaves like cacti and palms.

Add matching furniture to rekindle love

Bedrooms allow you to rest, recharge, and spend special time with your loved ones. Pun-Yin recommends adding some pink and purple colors to your bedroom to improve your relationship. Adding some pieces of furniture that have identical designs also brings harmony to the space.

Change the bed position

We spend a third of our life in bed. Place the bed in the “commanding position,” where you see the door, but you shouldn’t place it directly in line with the door. It isn’t considered a good sight to see someone’s feet first when entering the room. And the “chi” energy, as well as sudden temperature change, coming through the door to your body may affect your health, said Grienggrai Boontaganon, one of the top Feng Shui practitioners in Thailand. If you can’t move your bed, place furniture like a small chair, dresser, or sofa that are taller than your feet to block the energy from the door, he said.

Add objects that remind you of romantic times

For those with a healthy relationship, a Feng Shui celebrity advised you to dust the old honeymoon souvenirs and place them in the house. These objects store good memories and will be the medium of love, said Wisit Techakasem, one of Thailand’s most famed Feng Shui masters. Additionally, he recommends hanging bells and wind chimes, which is believed to enhance relationships, outside the house for peace and good fortune.

Create balance and enjoy expressing yourself

Lucky charms may help some people, but that isn’t the priority. Wisit recommends homeowners to prioritise the following elements, above all others, to create balanced energy: furniture that works properly, tidy and organised rooms, adequate air ventilation, houses that store memories, and freedom to express your artistic styles.

These are 10 easy tips to upgrade your house according to the old wisdom. But if you’re looking to relocate to a new city, you may want to add an auspicious location to the checklist. Properties that faces the sea and have large hills behind, such as most for sale in Pattaya, Hua Hin, Samui, and Phuket, are believed to help owners accumulate wealth, not to mention the joy of living a relaxing beach lifestyle.
