Now that winter is here, does your home feel warm? If not, it’s time for a couple changes. After all, we are spending more time indoors and we need warmth in our bodies, as well as the warm feelings that coziness and comfort bring.
When speaking in the terms of feng shui, it’s time to balance your environment by bringing in the fire element points.
Let’s talk decorating and re-decorating with the elements to increase the warmth and energy flow. This vital energy can be brought into your home environment with objects, throws, wall colors, pillows and plants… The point is to have fun with it and feel what works for you.
The foundation of feng shui is based on the five elements – wood, fire, earth, water and metal. Bring these elements into the décor of your home and you’ll increase the warming flow instantly!
Here are my top two pointers:
· Clutter – Get rid of it! The transition from winter to spring aims to launch people into new ideas. However, the mind associates clutter with stagnation and causes people to feel ‘stuck’ and unmotivated. Let inspiration flow by getting rid of your clutter! Get into your closets and corners, old boxes and basements to see where your unnecessary items are collected and lurking.
· Colors – Go for the gold! Rich golden hues with accents of yellow, orange, burgundy, deep green and brown will bring rich warmth to a chilled season! You can add these colors to your home with pillows, blankets, plants, rugs and art. An additional perk is the underlying nurturing comfort these colors bring to the subconscious.
There are many other ways to bring the right energetic flow into your home and I encourage you to read more about the subject. Find little ways to incorporate the elements into your home and see how it uplifts you! You never know – you just may get hooked!
