The change of season brings about a shift in energy. Applying the tools and wisdom of Feng Shui, the Chinese art of placement, can help bring your home environment into balance and harmony with the natural world around you.
These simple fall-inspired Feng Shui tips will promote good energy in your home and clear out any negative energy:
- Autumn is the season of metal, the binding element that represents our natural tendency to pull things together and draw inward as the weather gets colder. Adding elements that symbolize metal like round shapes, gray colors and metal objects will help attract positive energy to your home. The round shape of pumpkins make them a perfect addition to your fall decor and will protect your home from negative energy.
- Declutter. Stagnant energy lives in clutter. Create a seamless flow of energy in your home by getting rid of objects that no longer serve you.
- As the daylight becomes shorter, bring in more light and brighten up your home by washing the windows. In Feng Shui windows represent the “eyes” of the home. Washing them clears our vision and opens our eyes to the possibilities of season ahead.
- Tend to your indoor plants. House plants purify and circulate clean air and bring vitality into the home.
- Apples are symbols of abundance. Displaying a bowl of red apples means you will have enough food to feed your family this season.
