Unlike many traditional ancient Feng Shui practices, Western Feng Shui doesn’t dictate the kinds of decorating styles that you should use, but rather it outlines how to blend elements together to make the impression of your space as natural and comfortable. It encourages you to express how you feel about your space physically and emotionally, noting what you like about it and where you think it lacks. You are also encouraged to identify what you love and feel is important to have around you.
This really works…………..Try thinking about these things as they relate to your space. Make a list of your results, and then go ahead and start to make small changes reflecting your results, one area at a time. Make initial changes that you are comfortable doing on your own. For example if you feel you need more light, try changing window treatments, opening shades and blinds, or adjust the lighting. If you feel you don’t have room for storage, start cleaning out and either throw away or donate what you don’t need. Change or remove wall art that you don’t like. Once each task is completed, note to yourself how you feel and if you are noticing changes in your life. By doing this you have started the practice of Feng Shui on your own with great results, and you should feel empowered that you have started to take control of your own environment.
Keep your list and add to it as you learn more about yourself. You can then start to feel confident about your choices and identify styles that work for you.
