11 Home Energy Enhancers


Pictures of nature are powerful chi generators. Oil on canvas by Pacifica Artist Candade Troy. Candace Troy Studios

Your artwork takes up very important real estate on your walls. Make sure it is current and does not anchor in unwanted emotions. Your own art or that of your child or children holds powerful chi as long as everyone feels positive about it. Do not keep art up that you may love but your children are embarrassed about. Art can be used to bring into your life your hearts desire, so make sure everything on your walls is positive and reflects who you are now and what you want to either keep or bring into your life.(see my article Your Home is Attracting Your Future) Relationship pictures should be realistic i.e. no angelic men with mortal women (see my article on Feng Shui for Romance).


Feng Shui faceted 30 mm crystals

Crystals are regulators of chi or energy and used for multiple purposes in Feng Shui. They speed things up when they are sluggish and slow things down when moving too fast. The crystals we use for Feng Shui ‘cures’ are the 30mm faceted man-made crystals. Place one of these crystals on a stand on top of an affirmation or wish box, or hang one in the areas of the Bagua that you want to enhance. Natural quartz crystals are also amazing chi generators and can be used to enhance the chi in any area of the home that needs some pepping up. Arrange them on an attractive scarf  on a table or shelf in a place that needs extra special energy.

Sound Makers

Solar Chimes are used within the home and give a "fairy bell" tinkling sound when the home heats up

Anything that makes noise will pep up the chi. We use wind chimes both inside and outside the home in Feng Shui. Use them on the outside at the front door to greet and welcome in the chi or to enhance an area of the Bagua within the house that you want to enhance, such as the wealth area.  Solar chimes with a fairy-like sound ring on their own when the house heats up and are a wonderful way to keep the energy moving . (see my article on the Bagua)

Living Things

Our pets bring wonderful chi into the home!

Plants, flowers and animals must all be maintained and cared for in order to have a positive effect, but when they are, they bring happy loving chi into the home. Living plants are amazing chi generators. Silk flowers have much less chi but are fine if dusted frequently, rearranged periodically and thrown out as soon as they lose their luster.  Dry flowers and potpourri are not considered negative in Western Feng Shui, they just  fade quickly  are dust collectors and need to be thrown out within a month or two.

Objects from Nature

Artfully arrange shells

Anything from the natural world will generate chi and enhance a home. Rocks,  crystals and shells you have collected, as well as art objects you created from nature will bring the wonderful outside into the home. Just make sure they are attractively arranged and kept dusted and fresh looking and that you don’t have so many that they look like clutter. I love arranging my shell collection on crisp white sand in an attractive bowl for my bathroom. Things that attract nature to the garden, such as humming bird feeders and bird baths bring a happy chi to your yard.

Humming Bird Feeders are wonderful chi attractors

Hang them so that you can enjoy them from a window of your home. Make sure to clean bird baths often so that they do not become green with stagnant water or it will have the reverse effect. We do not want pools of stagnant water anywhere!

Bring in live flowers and abundant floral arrangements

Water Features

Water features are powerful chi enhancers and are recommended almost everywhere except in the Fame and Reputation area of the Bagua and in bedrooms. Aquariums incorporate all of the five elements and are wonderful in the appropriate places, provided they are maintained.

A dirty fish tank will have the opposite effect, just as any small animal or reptile cage that is not well cared for. A water feature near the front door will enhance the chi coming to the door.

Indoor water fountains are wonderful in the wealth and career areas of the home to get the money flowing

Use birdbaths and outdoor water fountains to attract birds and wildlife to your garden.

Solar Garden fountains don't require electricity

Fire Features

Chimineas, fire pits and tiki torches are powerful chi generators in the garden, as are fireplaces in the home.

Chimineas are wonderful for encouraging us to spend time outside under the stars

The more we are encouraged to spend time outside enjoying nature, the happier and more balanced we will feel in our lives.

Wind Dancers and Mobiles

Can be used like wind chimes to enhance the chi outside the home wherever you need it. Hang them in the garden or at the entryway to invite the chi into the home. Use wind socks and flags to attract the chi to the front door, which is the important ‘mouth of chi’ for your home, where all opportunities enter. (See my article How to Welcome Opportunities)

Wind Spinners hung at the entry way invite the chi into the home

Enjoy, and may you attract an abundance of wonderful chi into your lives!
