1 Clear the clutter
Hanging onto unused items can trap you in the past and block fresh opportunities – and people! – from entering your life. Spring is the perfect time to turn over a new leaf, so ditch anything that conjures up negative feelings and only keep items that you use, need or love. If you can’t bear to part with old clothes, pack them into boxes then, if unopened after a year, donate them to a charity next spring.
2 Beautify your entrance
Not only will an attractive entrance draw more luck and good fortune into your life, you’ll invite more visitors in too. Weeds, cracks and peeling paint convey poverty in feng shui, while creaky gates and overgrown gardens subconsciously say ‘stay away’. For an instant lift, jazz up your entrance with extra lighting or pop in a load of colourful or fragrant flowers. Bird feeders and bird baths can also lift your home’s beneficial chi.
3 Feng shui your kitchen
To support health and wealth, make your kitchen as airy and inviting as possible. Leaking taps, broken appliances and chipped crockery should be repaired or replaced, and the stove kept sparkling clean. If your back faces the kitchen entrance when cooking, consider adding a reflective splashback (or a shiny pot) to take away the element of surprise and calm your nerves. Tuck knives away to promote harmony and display fruit to invite prosperity – oranges are especially lucky.
4 Liven up your love life
If your bedroom feels more boring than boudoir, add some exotic touches: rich colours, sensual textures and moody lighting can all spice thing up. Arouse your senses with sensual ylang ylang oil, then activate your romance sector, located in the south west, with crystals, candles or flowers. If sleeping under a beam is causing relationship problems, paint it to blend in with the ceiling or invest in a canopied bed. (If things have really deteriorated, you might want to consider an onsite consultation).
5 Reassess your plants
Flowers and plants can really energise your home and garden, but only if they’re healthy. Start by replacing any sickly specimens then dirch any dried flowers (bad feng shui). Plants with oval shaped leaves create a calming vibe, while pointy-leaved varieties can stir up chi and liven up quiet corners, both in and outside. For extra luck, consider jade plants (money trees), peace lilies, bamboo, orange or cumquat trees, magnolia trees or fragrant flowers.
