1. The entrance
The front door of your house must be free of obstacles. Do not leave shoes, wardrobes or other items in front of or near her. An unobstructed entrance allows positive energy to flow into your home. Also, if possible, arrange your living room so that you always have a view of your entrance.
2. Let the light flow
Light is an important source of energy. Make sure every area of your house is well lit. If you can’t get natural light in some areas, you can use light colors (like yellow) on the walls to create the illusion of clarity.
3. Use mirrors
The use of mirrors inside your home provides a feeling of spaciousness and they reflect light creating more clarity. But be careful not to place them in your bedroom, where you can reflect yourself while you sleep.

4. Use nature
Keep live plants in your home, as they attract the positive vibes of nature into your home and purify your air. But take care of them and don’t let them wilt, as a dead plant can attract negative energy.
5. Don’t hoard things
The flow of positive energy is obstructed by clutter and the accumulation of unnecessary things. Try to have only what you need. Keep your countertops clutter-free, especially in the center of your home as this is considered the heart of your home.
6. Take care of your bathroom
The bathroom is the place where you purify your body and eliminate impurities. Always keep it in order, clean and with the doors closed to prevent negative energy from flowing into the rest of your house.
7. Close your doors
Do not leave doors open at bedtime. Closing the doors of your house while you sleep promotes healthy domestic relationships and good health.
8. Incorporate the 5 elements
One purpose of Feng Shui is to create balance between the elements that make up our nature. Use elements in your home that represent the earth with stones or ceramics, metal with electronics or decorations, water with fountains or aquariums, fire with candles or fireplaces and wood with furniture or a garden.
