I am very much into how our thoughts and feelings help create our future. However, it needs to be asked what external factors affect those thoughts and feelings in the first place, such as our environment, for example. Therefore, the ‘Queen of Clutter’ (that being myself) would like to discuss how Feng Shui could help you attract better fortune into your life. Feng Shui is an ancient art from China, which involves balancing energies in any particular place. Here is how you can do it.
Begin With The Bagua
A bagua map (also called pakua) consists of nine squares, each one symbolizing an essential part of a balanced life. This map can be used in any room in your house, as a guide to finding the right area for positioning things.

You see, particular spots in any given room and particular objects contain the best energy possible, and a Bagua map will help you pinpoint these spots. All you need do is align the bottom part of your bagua map with the entrance to your room, and arrange things in their proper place thereafter.]
Get To Know Your Map
Should you be serious about using Feng Shui effectively, then understanding the bagua and what each section of it represents, is vital to your future success with this science. Quite simply, there is no other way than by taking your time and applying due consideration to the process of learning. In doing so, you should reap immense rewards, achieving a balanced and happier environment, and therefore a happier more balanced you.
Use The Whole Bagua
The map needs to be seen as a guide as to what needs positioning where in any particular room in your house. However, you would be wise to try your level best to have something for each section. After all, Feng Shui is all about the creation of balance, which could be easily upset if you were to load one particular area of your room, while neglecting another.
Find Things That Need Fixing
Are you hoarding any broken objects around your home? If so, this can only lead to frustration which produces negative energy. You can easily remedy this, however, by either fixing or disposing of any broken objects and thus restore a sense of positive energy and calm within your house as a result.

Favor The Five Elements
The five elements are earth, fire, water, metal and wood, and a healthy mix of these within your home equals positive Feng Shui. Take a look around each room in your house to see what is needed, and what is not.
Candles are a great way, for example, of bringing in the fire element, whereas plants add earth, and fountains provide water. Should you have any problems, however, with bringing in any particular element, then a photo or painting of it should suffice.
Always Use The Front Door
Energy flows into your home from your front door. Therefore, you need to use this particular door as much as you possibly can, otherwise, maintaining good energy could prove somewhat difficult.
Get Professional Help
Should you find it hard to understand or apply the art of Feng Shui to your home, then you may wish to employ the services of a professional on the subject. By doing so, they will give you the right advice on how you can effectively apply this ancient art to your personal living space

Focus On The Bedroom And Kitchen
While all the rooms of your house should benefit from the application of Feng Shui, the bedroom and kitchen are particular places where the energy can become stuck and not flow correctly. Consider these tips then, if you would, to get that energy flowing properly once more.
Remove The Clutter
To maximize positive energy flow, your bedroom should be as uncluttered as possible. Therefore, you will need to get rid of any piles of old papers, unused exercise equipment, and so forth, to maximize open space and get the energy flowing properly.
Sleep With Feet Towards The Door
Your bed needs to be positioned correctly in order for you to experience restful and peaceful sleep. Positioning your bed, diagonally, across your bedroom with the foot towards the door, is the way to go. In simple terms, your bed should not face the door directly, but more at an angle if possible. This ensures both protection, by seeing who comes through your door, and correct energy flow at the same time.
Bureau Or Chest Opposite Your Bed
Position a bureau or chest of drawers opposite your bed. The correct positioning of furniture again brings about balance in a room, and while the item that you position opposite your bed does not need to be as big as the bed itself, as long as it is comparable in size, then the balance should prevail.
Make Full Use Of Your Windows
Positive energy flows into your home via natural sunlight, which comes in through your windows. This cannot happen effectively, however, if the windows remain covered. Maximum energy flow can be achieved, however, by keeping your curtains and windows open throughout the day for as long as it is feasible to do so.
Space Above Your Cabinets
Is there any space above your kitchen cabinets? If so, energy can get stuck, and stagnate here. You can easily counteract this, however, with the suitable positioning of leafy oxygen producing plants, correct lighting and objects that lift your spirits.
Fix That Faucet
According to Feng Shui, water symbolizes wealth – so don’t let yours steadily drip away due to a leaky faucet! Taking immediate steps to fix any leaks should quickly remedy the problem.
Clean Those Cabinets
As Feng Shui promotes minimalism and open space, it is important to go through your cabinets, on occasion, to make sure there is nothing there that is no longer required, including out of date food, which neither promotes a balanced atmosphere, or good health!
Respect Your Stove
Did you know that your kitchen symbolizes health in the home? True. As your stove prepares your food, it should be seen as the very hub of that health. By maintaining a clean stove, it will maintain the positivity energy of your food and thus, a more positive and energized you.
