In a nutshell, Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art that uses energy forces to create harmony in the environments we live in. Chi, the vital life force that resides within every entity, is at the heart of Feng Shui. Chi is created by combining two opposing yet complementary forces known as yin and yang, where yin represents feminine energy and yang represents masculine energy. Making simple changes to your surroundings and balancing the five elements of Feng Shui — wood, fire, earth, metal, and water — can help you bring positive chi into your life. Here are some tips on how to bring positive chi to your house this 2022. 

1.  Incorporate bright colors and objects

Reds and oranges are the feng shui colors linked with the fire element, so utilize them when decorating areas that require more dynamic energy. If painting a whole room red seems too bold, try red accent walls, orange throw cushions, and other hot splashes of color.

Another approach to incorporate the fire element into your house is to use warm lighting. Good lighting can make or break a room, whether it's in the form of pendant lights, floor lamps, table lamps, or wall sconces. Just make sure the light is pointing upward, similar to how flames seek towards the sky.

2.  Make your home a sensory haven

Adding wind chimes in your house can be used as a remedy with healing and energizing. It is also believed that the wind chime’s vibrating harmony connects with the Universe. 

The harmony wind chimes produced can also awaken your brain’s creativity and intuition. 

3.  Include  wood elements in your decor

Adding the wood feng shui element to your house will encourage growth, as well as nourish your relationships and prosperity, much as how plants develop and contribute life to the earth. You may incorporate wood into your kitchen, living room, or bedroom in both literal and metaphorical ways.

If you want to literally include the wood aspect into your house, utilize wooden furniture and décor! This might be everything from chairs and tables to ornamental bowls and photo frames. If you want to tackle a larger job, wood paneling along walls is a terrific method to include the aspect.

All pillars and columns are designed to seem like the strong, powerful trunks of trees, making them the ideal addition to your house if you want to harness the energy of the wood element. You may go for a dramatic design by installing actual columns in your house, or you can go for a more subtle look by using floor-to-ceiling drapes or vertically striped linens.

4.  Connect to the Earth from home

Because of the earthy character of the North Node in Taurus, this is an excellent time to begin cultivating food at home. Your garden will help you ground and connect to the outside from the comfort of your own home, in addition to providing you with fresh produce.

Gardening, whether it's an outdoor garden, an indoor setup, or a windowsill herb display, may be extremely beneficial to your mind, body, and soul.

Whether Chinese-related or not, many Filipinos practice Feng Shui to invite luck and prosperity for the rest of the year. With more Filipinos staying at home 24/7, many have become more passionate in redecorating their homes. Ready to own your #Suntrusthome? Check our Laguna projects HERE.
