One of the first things that you need to do to be able to attract Feng Shui energy is to unclutter your surroundings.

The next thing that you should pay attention to is the main entrance of your home. You need to make sure that there are distractions or obstructions along the way, especially if you close and open the door. There are some homes that have an entrance that is dark.

If it is too impossible, you may even use a wind chime Feng Shui as it will be used to balance the negativity that the dark spot brings.

Another thing that you should avoid in the area of your entrance would be the mirror. Some people place a mirror at the opposite side of the entrance, which is definitely not ideal because it repels both the negativity and positivity that comes in and out of your home. It would be ideal to have a Buddha that is laughing, to make sure that your main door will attract positivity in your life. Lastly if you notice sharp edges in your home, it would be ideal to cover them up as these are arrows that are poisonous, which can become an obstacle along your way.

Typically a fortune plant or a bamboo plant would be ideal, for you to be able to bring luck to your entire home and its occupants.

Sleeping Position for Feng Shui

If you are sleeping or sitting, you need to make sure that there are no things at the area where your head is currently located. There are some that have staircase, loft, beams and shelves on the top area of their head. This can cause problems and burdens that may arise in the future. It would be ideal to change your usual sleeping position, for you to avoid bearing any weight in your head.
