One of the top reasons for negative energy and feeling a total loss of control of your life is living in a cluttered home. Clutter suffocates positive energy, and therefore, energy can’t flow freely throughout your home. Clear the clutter now to make a happier home, because if your home life is physically cluttered, then your emotional well-being will suffer.
Choose the Right Window Treatments
Feng shui classes will teach you the right way to dress up your home windows. First, having a room with a view is fantastic, but you should be able to block it out when you need total darkness to sleep or to have your privacy. The right type of window curtains and shades will be made of light fabric; it is recommended to stay away from metal, plastic and wood blinds, as they tend to close off the space. Choose non-bulky materials and simple patterns to avoid feeling uneasy in the room.
Reposition Your Bed
You may not be aware of the fact that, to get a good night’s sleep, you must first feel secure. Placing your bed in the proper position is believed to offer security to put your mind at ease while you sleep. In other words, when you are in bed, you should have a clear view of the entire room and the bedroom door, and it’s best that your headboard leans against a wall.
Cover or Move Electronics
Because electronics emit electrical currents, it’s suggested to keep them out of your bedroom and home office. These currents are present whether the device is on or off, which can cause emotional or physical issues, like difficultly concentrating and experiencing ringing of the ear, or even disrupt sleep. If you must have a television set in your bedroom or office, cover it up with a decorative piece of fabric when it’s not in use. Electronics that get hot should be unplugged, not covered, to avoid starting a fire.
