The Chinese metaphysical and quasi-philosophical system, Feng Shui, has become an important aspect of modern real estate. In Bangladesh, however, the concept of Feng Shui is quite new. But the influence of foreign culture is getting more and more Bangladeshis curious about Feng Shui.
The Idea of Feng Shui
The practice of Feng Shui originated from the idea that our homes represent what is happening in our lives. Feng Shui aims to bring our surrounding environment in alignment with who we are and what we want to achieve in life by harmonizing the energy of your home. According to Feng Shui, every object has its own energy, even lifeless objects. Feng shui suggests that arranging rooms, furniture and objects will allow energy to freely flow through your room.
How Does Feng Shui Work?
The age old Chinese belief suggests that following the Feng Shui rules in your home décor will bring about good vibes, increase prosperity and promote good health and even create wealth. Although there are many controversies about the theory, and scientists have found little evidence that suggests the existence of it, Feng Shui has still managed to attract the attention of interior designers, real estate companies and home owners.
How to Feng Shui your Home
Feng Shui is a very extensive process. But there are ways to change little things about your home and still get a positive energy flowing inside your house. Some simple Feng Shui tips are mentioned below:
No More Squeaks
If you have squeaky doors or windows, get them fixed. Especially your entry door should be free from the annoying sound as front doors are the entry way for positive energy in Feng Shui. You can oil the door hinges to fix the sound and create harmony in your space.
Focus on the Front Door
As indicated before, front doors are very important in Feng Shui. If you are someone who ignores the front door frequently and makes an entrance through the back door instead, you need to change your habit. Using the front door more often will allow prosperity to access your home.
Introducing water elements to your space has considerable advantages in Feng Shui. A fountain can be a good addition to elevate the aura of your home. Feng Shui suggests placing a fountain near the front door, so that it feels like it’s just inside or just outside.
Placing indoor plants in specific areas of your home will bring in positive energy. Plants in unconventional areas like the kitchen cabinet, next to the TV or computer will help break down the negative force. Lucky Bamboos, Peace Lilies, and English Ivys are often considered Feng Shui friendly house plants.
