Imagine yourself in a place that makes you feel relaxed, comfortable, and happy. You may be at the beach, in a painting class, or listening to music in your living room. You know what it feels like to be in harmony.

Now imagine yourself in a place that makes you feel overwhelmed, nervous, and frightened. You may find yourself on crowded public transportation at rush hour, waiting for test results at the doctor’s office, or pulled over the side of the road waiting for the police officer to approach your car. You know what it feels like to be stressed and out of balance.

You experience the power of a space.  Your body is a sensitive instrument that continually communicates with everything surrounding you.  That is why you feel the way you do in different spaces.

Albert Einstein said, “Everything is Energy, and that is all there is to it.”

You and your home are connected. Communication is going on between you and your home at every moment.  Your home is like a mirror. What is happening in you is reflected in your home. Your stress, overwhelm, or anxiety is seen in your space as clutter, the arrangement of your furniture, or electrical systems not working correctly. What is happening within your home is also reflected in you.

During a recent Feng Shui consultation, my client asked if he should move. He was feeling restless in his home, especially his master bedroom. After moving his furniture, he told me that he felt comfortable and nourished in his bedroom for the first time in seven years. Now, he does not want to move.

When I notice specific design details, I know people may have difficulty in an area of their life or health. An example is the master bedroom suite, which includes a bathroom. If there is no door between the bedroom and the toilet, the energetics indicate that one of the partners in the relationship may be away due to extensive business traveling, divorce, or even death. I had a client with this situation, and her husband traveled so much that she had anxiety about him coming home.

Your home has a subtle energy flowing through it, which influences your feelings, thoughts, and health. The flow is impacted by the Fabulous Four: Beauty, clutter, broken items, and furniture placement. The Fabulous Four work together with the 9 High-Priority Feng Shui Principles below to enhance your health and vitality:

9 High-Priority Feng Shui Health Principles

  1. Front Door – use your front door. That is how the flow enters your home. Make sure your entrance is inviting. Keep the area clean and clutter-free.
  2. Clutter—too much stuff anywhere in your home drains your vitality. It robs you of your time, money, and health because it restricts “flow” in your body and space. It contributes to a lack of focus and feelings of frustration and overwhelm.
  3. Beauty – incorporate art you love, colors that uplift you, healthy plants, or fresh flowers to brighten up your home.
  4. Doors—fix squeaky, sticking, or broken doors. Doors must be able to open fully; that means nothing can be stored behind them. Doors reflect the voices of adults in the house. Can you speak up for yourself? Can you set boundaries easily? Are you shy? These are all possible challenges when doors are in disrepair.
  5. Electrical System: Replace burned–out lights and/or bulbs, repair broken outlets, eliminate overloaded plugs, and illuminate dark areas in your home. Your electrical system reflects your nervous system. Do you have any issues with focus, calmness, thyroid, or depression? Check out your electrical system and dark areas of your home.
  6. Plumbing System—Fix leaky faucets, poor water pressure, and slow-draining sinks, tubs, or toilets. Your home's plumbing system represents your circulatory system. Are there any health issues with high blood pressure, heart disease, digestive problems, or urinary tract infections? Check out your plumbing system. This also includes sprinkler systems in your yard.
  7. Command Position—Do not sit with your back to the door. Arrange your furniture so you face the entrance to the room without being in direct line with the door. This allows you to see who or what is entering the room, making it easier for you to see opportunities or danger coming to you.
  8.  Your Stove—command position is best because you see who enters the kitchen. If you are startled while cooking, the startled energy goes into your meal. It is always best to have a positive mindset when preparing meals. The stove must be clean (all burners, oven, broiler), and there should be no covers over the burners. Your view while cooking and the condition of the stove reflect your health.
  9. Home Maintenance is Crucial – Your home reflects the state of your health. Change one area, and every area is impacted.

It is time to take inventory of your home. What areas are in excellent condition, which boosts your vitality, and which areas need to be improved, repaired, cleaned, or changed furniture arrangement?
