Feng Shui House Guide: How To Harmonize Your Home

Feng Shui is the art and science of how a space will affect you, and your home is the space that affects your health, wealth & happiness.

If you’ve ever felt that something was off or lacking in your home, it might very well be a matter of the energy flow within your space.

Feng Shui, which translates to “wind and water,” is the belief that the arrangement and design of our surroundings can greatly impact our well-being.

As your Feng Shui expert, I utilize specific techniques and principles to help you achieve balance and harmony in your home, leading to a more positive and fulfilling life.

Interior design plays a significant role in Feng Shui and it’s not just about having aesthetically pleasing furniture and decor, but also about creating a space that supports and enhances the harmony of your home.

This is done by following the basic principles of Feng Shui, such as balancing the five elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water) and ensuring that each room has a good combination of yin and yang energy.

Command positions are a well-known principle in Feng Shui, and there are several of them.

  • The office command position for productivity aligns to the most beneficial and purest energy, called Sheng Qi.
  • The bedroom command position for sleeping aligns to the Fu Wei direction that promotes longevity and peacefulness.

Did you know there is a type of command position for your front door?

As the ‘mouth of qi / chi’ your front door must align to the best energy approaching the home.

When you enter your home, you bring this Qi / chi in with you, and the quality of this Qi / chi will greatly affect what occurs in the home.

By implementing simple Feng Shui principles, you can transform your home into a tranquil and welcoming sanctuary with limitless potentials.

Why Feng Shui Your Home

Because you want your home to be the ultimate foundation for your family, to cultivate meaningful & loving relationships, enhance career potentials and provide financial stability.

6 of the top reasons to Feng Shui your home are:

1. Feng Shui Improves Energy & Flow

When you follow the principles of Feng Shui, you improve the circulation and balance of energy circulating throughout your home.

When positive chi / Qi is free-flowing and uninhibited by dark rooms, narrow hallways, clutter and stale air / energy, your life potentials increase dramatically.

Qi is the life force energy of all things and promotes health, wellness and a life of prosperity and abundance.

When Qi / chi is blocked or affected negatively, illness, financial loss and problematic relationships are more likely to occur.

2. Feng Shui Increases Productivity & Creativity

Feng Shui promotes a clutter-free and organized environment, which helps to clear your mind and increase focus.

With better concentration and a clear mind, you will feel more creative and productive, with the ability to complete tasks ahead of schedule!

Utilizing the office command position for your desk and chair in your home office is crucial.

The perfect home office set-up is:

  • High backed office chair, on wheels, with side arms
  • Solid wall behind the chair
  • Desk positioned so you can see who enters the office
  • Desk facing your Sheng Qi direction

Aligning your desk and chair so that when you are sitting at your desk you can see who enters, with a solid wall behind you and facing your purest energy direction puts you in the ultimate Feng Shui command position.

3. Feng Shui Improves Health and Well-being

Feng Shui also focuses on creating a healthy and nurturing space.

By incorporating natural elements, such as plants and natural light, and keeping the space clean and free of toxins, you can create a space that promotes physical and mental well-being.

However, real Feng Shui goes deeper, and each family member’s birth information (Ming Gua) is aligned with the Feng shui energy map (BaGua) to ensure they are strengthened while they sleep and energized while they are awake.

4. Feng Shui Enhances Sleep

Our homes are meant to be a sanctuary where we can unwind and recharge.

Feng Shui encourages creating a peaceful and calming bedroom by understanding how to align the space with the person sleeping there.

Using the Feng Shui Bagua map, the bed is placed in the Fu We position for the most restful and rejuvenating sleep. This also promotes healing and is a vital component when someone is sick or recovering from illness.

The Feng Shui bedroom command position also includes ensuring the bed is not under a window, inline with the entry door, or on the same wall as the door.

The best Feng Shui command bed position is:

  • On a solid external wall
  • High solid headboard
  • Balanced night tables one each side of the bed

Placing the bed in a way that aligns with Feng Shui, allows for a clear view of the door, incorporates relaxing colours and elements, and improves the quality of your sleep, leaving you feeling more rested and rejuvenated.

With your harmonious and balanced environment, you can foster better communication and strengthen bonds with your loved ones.

Feng Shui has numerous benefits for your physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Feng Shui House Layout

Incorporate Feng Shui into the design of your home to build it from the ground up will provide you with incredible potentials for optimal happiness and success.

If you already have your home, follow these simple steps to promote positive Feng Shui and support your family.

1. Clear the Clutter

The first step in creating optimal Feng Shui in your home is to declutter and get rid of any unnecessary items.

A cluttered space can block the flow of energy, or Qi / chi, and create a stagnant and unbalanced environment.

2. Allow for Natural Light

Natural light is an essential element of Feng Shui.

Make sure to open up your windows and allow natural light to flow in. If you have areas that do not receive much natural light, consider adding mirrors to reflect and amplify the light.

3. Use a Balance of Elements

The five elements of Feng Shui (wood, fire, earth, metal, and water) should be balanced and represented in your home.

Incorporate different colours, textures, and materials to create a cozy, harmonious and well-balanced space.

4. Understand the Bagua Map

The BaGua map is an important tool in Feng Shui that divides a space into nine areas, each representing a different aspect of life.

Understanding this map can help you identify areas in your home that may need attention and how to enhance them with appropriate elements.

5. Embrace Symmetry

Feng Shui places a strong emphasis on symmetry and balance.

Keep furniture and decor arrangements balanced and avoid having one side of a room overloaded with items while the other side is empty.

6. Create a Welcoming Entryway

The entryway is the first thing you and your guests see when entering your home.

Make it inviting and clutter-free to allow for positive energy to enter. Use vibrant plants, a welcome mat, or a piece of art to attract good Qi / chi.

7. Pay Attention to Your Bedroom

The bedroom is a place of rest and relaxation, which is why it is important to create a peaceful and calming space.

Avoid having electronics, mirrors, or clutter in the bedroom, and opt for soothing colours and soft lighting.

8. Incorporate Plants and Natural Elements

Plants and natural elements are excellent for boosting the flow of positive energy in your home.

Indoor plants not only add a touch of nature, but they also purify the air and can improve your overall well-being.

Other natural elements, such as natural fibres, crystals, or wooden decor, can also bring a sense of balance and grounding to your home.

Feng Shui House Direction

According to Feng Shui principles, the direction your home faces has a significant impact on the energy flow and overall harmony of your space.

Each home direction is associated with a specific element and has its own unique qualities and characteristics.

There are two major schools of Feng Shui:

Xuan Kong Fei Xing: Flying Star Feng Shui

Flying Star Feng Shui uses the specific magnetic degree (out of 360º on the compass) and age of the home.

This is the classic and trusted method of any Feng Shui expert, and my specialty for clients as it has proven to be the most efficient and applicable method.

Flying Star Feng Shui is Eastern, and not to be confused with the Western Feng Shui method which falls short of real Feng Shui.

Eight House: 8 Mansion Feng Shui

Eight House School Feng Shui (8 Mansion) is a simpler version of Feng Shui that uses the BaGua map in a basic format aligned to compass directions.

It is proven to be a viable technique when applied with Flying Star Feng Shui to provide optimal results.

Western Feng Shui has exploded into North America, and is a ‘quick fix’ approach to fast track results.

Can you ‘trick’ Feng Shui…?


Implementing Flying Star Feng Shui is your best option, however, let’s explore the different Feng Shui home directions and their significance in Feng Shui:

1. Home Facing North

The North direction is associated with the #1 Water element of Kan, and is considered to be a powerful and dynamic direction.

It is believed that homes facing North attract career opportunities, wealth, and success.

However, this direction can also bring challenges and obstacles, so it is essential to balance the energy in this area by incorporating elements of wood and metal.

2. Home Facing South

The South direction is associated with the #9 Fire element of Li, and is considered to be an active and energizing direction.

Homes facing South are believed to have a strong and vibrant energy that promotes passion, creativity, and recognition.

However, too much fire energy in this direction can lead to arguments and conflicts, so it is essential to introduce elements of water and metal to balance the energy.

3. Home Facing East

The East direction is associated with the #3 Wood element of Zhen, and is considered to be a peaceful and nurturing direction.

Homes facing East are believed to attract growth, new opportunities, and good health.

This direction can be ideal for study areas, as it promotes a sense of calmness and creativity. It is recommended to incorporate elements of earth and fire in this direction for a balanced energy flow.

4. Home Facing West

The West direction is associated with the metal element #7 of Dui, and is considered to be a direction of power and decisiveness.

Homes facing West attract opportunities and precision, making it an excellent direction for home offices and active areas.

However, too much metal energy can cause rigidity and inflexibility, so it is essential to balance it with elements of wood and water.

In addition to these four main directions, there are also four sub-directions – Northeast, Southeast, Northwest, and Southwest – each with its own unique energy and characteristics.

It is essential to understand how these directions impact your home and to use specific Feng Shui cures and remedies to enhance the energy flow in each area.

The direction your home faces is a crucial aspect of Feng Shui, and understanding its significance can help you create a more harmonious living space.

When your home faces its optimal Feng Shui direction, you promote positive energy flow and attract balance, abundance, and harmony into your home.

How To Align With Your Home

Aligning with your home is a vital aspect of achieving family wellbeing, health, and happiness.

The traditional Chinese practice of Feng Shui focuses on creating harmony and balance within the living environment, which can greatly benefit your household.

By using Feng Shui principles in the design, layout, and arrangement of your home, you can create a space that nurtures and supports the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of your family.

When your home is aligned with Feng Shui, it can help to improve the flow of energy and promote a sense of tranquility, which can positively impact the overall mood and well-being of your family.

So, it is crucial to consider the principles of Feng Shui when setting up your home to create a harmonious and healthy environment for your loved ones to thrive in.
