Negative Outside Feng Shui: Before you even enter your home, the Feng Shui energy outside your home is important for many reasons. Think of this as the area where the energy which flows into your home comes from. You want it to be vibrant, healthy energy coming in, so it’s important to keep it clutter-free and looking nice. Keep the plants, trees, and grass trimmed and neat. If you’d like to learn more about outside Feng Shui check out our blog titled, The Importance of Home Maintenance in Feng Shui.
Clearing the Negative Energy from Your Space: Avoid keeping the negative energy brought on by negative experiences, or a bad history in a home, by clearing the energy. This is a Feng Shui must, whether you do it before moving in, once a week, or once a month. The good news is there are so many ways to make this happen from clearing the clutter, to burning incense, to opening the windows. Every blog I write has something to teach about keeping the positive energy, but here are a couple to start: Five Tips to Invigorate Your Space Today and Fragrant Feng Shui.
