Discover Your Feng Shui Birth Element And Learn 14 Tips You Can Apply Today

The best way to improve your brain state and achieve peak performance is to create the right flow of energy in your environment.  That is – in your home or your office where you spend most your time.

How Does It Work?

Feng ShuiOrganizing your home and office changes the frequency of the energy flowing there.

If the environment isn’t arranged the right way, it causes your brain to produce beta energy waves, leaving you overwhelmed, sad, depressed, or unsupported.

On the other hand, if the space is organised well, you generate more alpha waves, which make you feel happier.

Using an EEG machine, we’ve seen how a person’s brain waves immediately shift from beta frequency to the desired alpha state when in a room where Diamond Feng Shui is applied.

10 Feng Shui Tips For Your Home:

  1. Declutter your house. Burn off the old energy to welcome the new one.
  2. Get rid of (or fix) any broken objects.
  3. Create an abundance of light. Open the curtains to get as much natural light as possible and consider using full-spectrum lights.
  4. Let in more fresh air.  Open the windows, use an air-purifier or grow air-purifying plants. Some of the most popular and easy to grow and care for plants include: Areca Palm, Lady Palm. Bamboo Palm, Rubber Plant and Dracaena Janet Craig.
  5. Keep the dirty laundry out of sight.
  6. To improve your health place plants or wood furniture in the East area of the house.
  7. To attract prosperity place elements of Wood and Water in the Southeast area of your house.
  8. Remove everything work related from the bedroom and clear under your bed – so good energy can flow all around you and encourage a peaceful sleep.
  9. Clear out anything that is blocking your front door, both inside and outside of the house. Like old newspapers,  bikes, plants, shoes etc. This will let the energy flow freely into your home and life.
  10. Grow more flowers and trees in your garden (if you have one).

4 Feng Shui Tips For Your Office:

  1. Rearrange your study space so that your desk is positioned so that you can see the door. Having your back against a solid wall is also empowering for the mind.
  2. Add more leafy green plants to your study.  They renew the energy in the room by producing oxygen and removing chemicals from indoor air.
  3. Remove all the unnecessary paperwork from your desk. Keep all the things you don’t need right now in your drawers.
  4. Keep your pictures and artwork inspirational.
