Feng Shui Your Home Office

A good night’s sleep is essential to your wellbeing and sets you up for a brighter day. It gives you the energy to take on the world and be the very best version of yourself. 

In Feng Shui, the two most important areas we assess are the entry to the home and the bedrooms. 

A well arranged bedroom should create the optimal environment and energy flow for your body to relax and restore itself. Some of our most important internal organs restore their energy and essence throughout the night.

For example, the liver regenerates between 11pm-3am while your lungs restore themselves from 3am-7am. During sleep, your body will come back to its natural rhythm as it completely sinks into a deep resting state.

To promote these restorative processes, the energy within the bedroom should be kept mostly a restful and inactive yin. It will provide the foundation for good health and develop a positive mindset. Meanwhile, good energy flow in the bedroom will have positive impacts on the other areas of your life, including romantic matters, career opportunities and wealth as well as help foster harmonious relationships. 

If you are renovating or designing your kitchen, take below factors into consideration in terms of the placement of the kitchen:

  • Kitchen should not be placed in the centre of the house. This location is likely to affect the occupants’ health, especially the possibility around heart or eye illnesses. 
  • The worst location of the kitchen is the Northwest of the house. This location severely affects the ‘bread-earner’ of the house, creating obstacles or difficulties in generating wealth, the worst, loss of income or bankruptcy. 
  • The placement of a kitchen should be placed towards the back of the house.
  • Kitchen should NOT be the first thing you see when enter the house, specially the stove.
  • Kitchen should NOT be seen from the toilet. 
  • Avoid paint the kitchen or the splashback red. Given kitchen also contains ‘fire’ energy, red can make this fire energy too strong for the occupant. 
  • Stove should NOT be sharing a same wall with the toilet.

Feng Shui Your Kitchen

In Feng Shui, the kitchen holds a special place within a home as it represents the wealth, health and the well-being of a family. The way you treat your kitchen is a symbol of how you respect your resources, such as food supplies & money.

Follow below tips to maintain a healthy flow within your kitchen:

1. Respect your food.  Only buy what you need without being wasteful or skimpy. Respect food means respect your valuable resources, in return, it will bring your health and more prosperity. 

2. Stock up your pantry and fridge. A well-stocked pantry represents abundance, but also remember to clean out anything that has passed expiry dates on a regularly basis. This keeps energy renewed and wealth flowing.

3. Make sure all burners of your stove are working effectively. The stove, in particular, is the source of the fire, the ability to transform our food to nourishment and delicious meals. Also try to utilize all your stove's burners. This symbolises that your income can be generated from various sources rather than relying on just one. 

4. Keep your stove clean. This is vital. If your stove and oven are dirty and grimy, they impart negative chi to your food and that brings down your personal energy, prosperity and the chi of your food.
