Top 6 Feng Shui tips to create great energy at home

Home is where the heart is. It’s vital that good energy or Qi constantly surrounds our being. Good Qi in the home helps improve our health and wealth, significantly empowering us to achieve our life goals.

There are 2 types of Qi:
1) Sheng Qi (Life Energy): Positive and harmonious
2) Sha Qi (Killing or Attacking Energy): Clogged, stagnant, killing

Understanding this concept and applying Feng Shui knowledge to your home can be a wise investment for your overall well-being. To help you get started, here are some Feng Shui tips for beginners to create good Feng Shui energy at home.


Before Buying a House: Do Judge A Book By Its Cover

1. Find the bad
A good Feng Shui house does not have harmful Sha Qi (killing or attacking Qi) around the house. Inspect your surroundings. Are there any sharp structures “aiming” at your home? Is the sharp angle from a nearby building angled in such a way that it “slices” towards the house? These are examples of bad Sha Qi directing attacking energy towards your house. Sha Qi must be dealt with, if not no matter how good the Feng Shui is within your house, it wouldn’t work.

2. Find the good
Think of the home as a container for Qi (energy flow). For the home to collect beneficial Qi, you must first have a source of good Qi. Remember: Good Qi comes from nature, not man-made structures. For example, mountains and hills are carriers of Qi. If you have none in the area, then the Qi is probably weak or stagnant. If possible, invest in places that are exposed to more nature for better Qi.

After you have finished checking the exterior, go ahead and take a look at the house, the interior itself. This is to help you check whether or not the property gives rise to any obvious problems.


Taking care of the entrance

3. Ensure the Bright Hall is spacious
Bright Hall: A Feng Shui term that refers to the space directly in front of the property.

‘Bright’ in this case refers to the lack of clutter, so porch lights or any form of lighting have nothing to do with it! Good Qi must first settle and collect before you can receive it. Do you block your entrance with shoe racks, flower pots, cleaning tools and other clutter? Clear them! In order for good Qi to flow to your house, the area in front of your Main Door must be spacious and unobstructed.

4. Pay attention to the Main Door
Once the good Qi has settled in the Bright Hall, it enters the home through the Main Door. The Qi should have a smooth, unobstructed flow to the rest of the house. Have you placed any obstructions in the way of the Qi entering the house? Are there any mirrors directly facing the door that can ‘repel’ the Qi? Or any sharp objects ‘attacking’ the flow of the Qi? Remove these objects. This way, your Main Door can best receive good Qi into the home.


Key Rooms

5. The Kitchen
The kitchen is where we prepare our meals, so if the Qi here is bad, we are directly consuming the bad Qi which will adversely affect our health. A wrongly placed kitchen usually denotes chronic poor health and could even mean shortened lifespan for the residents!

• Placement of the kitchen:
A kitchen should not be located in the central palace or the Heavenly Heart of the property. The central palace is a passive sector of the home where Qi flow should be subtle and peaceful. Placing a kitchen here would be akin to burning the heart of the house, creating instability, long-term health issues or problems. Hence the kitchen should always be located at the side sectors of a house, not the centre.

• Placement of the stove:
It should be located next to a wall for stability, and not too close or opposite the sink, to ensure there is no clashing Water and Fire elements.

6. The Bedroom
We spend 1/3 of our lives in the bedroom, we rest and recharge here. The bedroom is a sacred place that directly affects our health and vitality.

• Location:
It should be located in suitable sectors based on the formulas in Eight Mansions, Xuan Kong Da Gua or Flying Stars, and according to what is suitable to the house, as dictated by the environment conditions.

• Shape of the bedroom:
Should be square or rectangular. Odd-shaped rooms will affect the balance of Qi.

• Headboard:
Should not be free-standing or against a feature such as a window. Best placed against a wall, for stability.

• Position of bed:
Avoid placing the bed in a position where you will sleep with your feet pointed towards the door, as this leads to your energy escaping through the door at night.

With these tips, we hope you’ve learnt a thing or two about the basics to creating good energy in the home. In our next article, we’ll share more on applying feng shui to decorating!

Take care, and may you have good Qi in your home.
