If you are lucky, you will have guests coming and going over the next six weeks blessing your home with love and laughter, great conversation, fabulous food and gifts. Feng Shui principles can help you prepare for them and keep your home running smoothly. With Feng Shui, we’re always looking to make our spaces safe, comfortable and harmonious.

Recently, when speaking about Feng Shui at one of our local library branches, an audience member asked a question that struck a chord: “We’ve had a string of bad luck lately. What can we do, right now, to change our luck?” It’s a great question because most of us have experienced what feels like a string of bad luck at some point in our lives. In fact, many heads were bobbing in agreement. Like many good questions (and I count this as a good one for just this reason) it was asked in a way that held the answer.
I’m often struck by the practical nature of the principles of Feng Shui. The Feng Shui tenets of safety, comfort and beauty as a way to maintain balance and harmony in our homes make sense in the abstract, but more importantly they make sense in the concrete and tangible world of our spaces. One of the best ways to make your space safe, comfortable and beautiful is to put everything back in its place after you’ve used it, restoring the balance of the room. This is an easy way to increase the gentle flow of chi, the vital energy that flows through our spaces. This principle applies – daily -- to your bed!
