Where to Begin on your Feng Shui Journey:

Start with Quick and Simple Feng Shui Gems - to get a broad overview of western Feng Shui then go on to:

1. The Anatomy of Clutter: De cluttering is huge in Feng Shui and the first thing you will want to tackle to get the energy moving in your life. You will be astounded at the opportunities that start to unfold when you do!

2.Your Home is Attracting Your Future This talks more about the subject that everything is energy and everything in your space is affecting you in a powerful way.

3. Entryway Feng Shui The Entryway is considered the mouth of chi where all of our opportunities come to us. This will show you the importance of having a ˜greeting‘ area that is lovely and inviting at your front door and how important this is in attracting them to you.

4. Feng Shui for Adult Bedrooms The bedrooms are the most crucial part of the home because it is where we spend ¾ of our time.  This is the first room you should fix up for everyone in the home. See Feng Shui for Children’s Rooms and Feng Shui for Teen’s Rooms.

5. Feng Shui for the Office If you work out of your home this will be the second most important room to get working for you, after you do the bedroom.

6. Feng Shui for Kitchens Kitchens are key rooms and affect our health and wealth in important ways. Make sure you have a kitchen that is organized, happy and works for you so that you love being there!

7. Feng Shui for Bathrooms, Dining Rooms, Family Rooms, Living Rooms, Attics, Basements and Garages, – Once you get the key rooms working for you tackle these rooms one by one in the order of the rooms that you spend the most time in.

More Advanced, for Those Who Want to go Deeper – This adds deeper  layers of enrichment to your home and your life and takes you into the more esoteric parts of Feng Shui

8. Charting the Energy Centers of Your Home- The Bagua.

My husband is a pack rat, how do I get him to change... It makes it difficult to keep all areas clutter free. I need a week off work to tackle just the garage and even then he'd put half if not more of it back :(

I am not sure if my home is a feng or a shui... but I know when it feels right. When you walk in and feel the warmth and love , I know for me it is great and I feel gratitude for the walls I have the rooms I enjoy and the garden that is abundant in color...
Is this Feng shui? I think it is bliss....

"According to the Law of Attraction, Like Attracts Like" ... this is all about Universal Gravitation, as postulated by Newton, Einstein, Joie, and others.

The home as a living organism certainly gravitates too!

Obviously, if people have problems, there are issues where the person is stuck in indecision or ambivalence or not seeing.
