5 Insider Garden Feng Shui Tips To Attract Positive Energy
Implementing the house Feng Shui rules for the internal and external is essential. However, we should pay attention to the garden because this space also plays a significant role in the overall Feng Shui energy.
Regardless if you have a small or big garden or even an indoor one, the presence of healthy and growing plants helps to attract good energy vibes.
A Garden implemented with the correct Feng Shui principles will bring favourable energy/Chi into your house. Therefore, it can help members of the household to feel refreshed and rejuvenated. So, let’s explore the tips now.
1. Keep The Main Entrance Unobstructed
It is essential to have an open area in front of the main entrance door to encourage and allow the energy to flow freely.
Do not plant large trees, lampposts or have any large obstructions close to or at the front door that block your view/pathway.
2. Maintain Your Garden Regularly
Always keep your garden in good condition by trimming the plants, and removing dried leaves or flowers, because dead objects usually create negative Feng Shui energy.
No clutter, please!
3. Utilize The Power of 5 Elements
You can apply the principle of the five elements to create a balanced and harmonious Feng Shui garden. Each object in this area represents a specific element.
Earth – Plant/flowers pots, soil, rocks, stone, pebbles, etc
Wood – The plant, tree, planting box, etc
Water – Water fountain or features.
Fire – Lighting, Red flowers, lanterns, fire BBQ pit
Metal – Metal windchime, arbour, etc.
4. Ensure Flow of Energy
Don’t forget to add a pathway or passageway for easy manoeuvre from areas to areas and back to the main entrance.
Avoid using a straight path because it resembles a “poison arrow” pointing to your front or back door, symbolising lousy luck for the family. A curved pathway is an ideal option in most situations.
5. Apply the Ba Gua Map in your Garden
The Bagua is the Feng Shui energy map so that we can use it to align your intentions to the specific sector of the garden. For example, place a water fountain in the southeast if you want to enhance the money energy. You can refer to the below Bagua Map.
WEALTH & PROSPERITY
