Let wealth flow into your home
Keeping a small fish tank in your living room will not only add more to beauty of your room but also can usher in prosperity.
De-cluttering the living room of any unwanted items will free up closed energy. It will throw out negative energy and usher in positive one.
Good luck for your home
An important item mentioned in Feng Shui is bamboo. You can place a bamboo plant in your living room for inviting good luck. Also called the Feng Shui plant, it is also a symbol of letting your spirit flow generously and being flexible.
Balance elements to create harmony
The basic principle behind Feng Shui is maintaining equilibrium between the masculine and feminine elements in a room, known as yin and yang. You can achieve this balance by placing fresh flowers in the room. Do not place dry flowers, as they are considered ominous as per Chinese tradition.
Mirror on the walls
A mirror in a room can help in making the room appear bigger. In Feng Shui, the mirror should be placed in such a way that it reflects the view of the beautiful outdoor or any good view. It allows an inflow of positive energy.
Choose the right furniture
Feng Shui also has certain guidelines for furniture in the living room. Opt for round shaped furniture as it lends a welcome feel to the whole atmosphere creating harmony and peace. It is considered that chairs and seating furniture with high back and comfortable arm position lend an easy and protective look. Seats should be arranged around a centre table or they should face the fireplace. Feng Shui discourages having a TV as the focal point as it can bring about disharmony in the house.
By applying Feng Shui elements in your living room, you can ensure prosperity, health, harmony and a flow of positive energy.
