Balance Yin And Yang Energies in Your Home

The ancient Chinese system of Feng Shui recognizes two distinct types of energy: yang, which is masculine and assertive, and yin, which is feminine and receptive. Because of television, computers, and other electronic equipment, as well as straight lines and reflective surfaces, most of us live in homes that are dominated by yang energies. Too much yang energy can make us feel stressed. In order for us to feel truly relaxed and for things to run smoothly in our homes, we need to have a balance.

Find out how to bring yin energies into your home to balance all that yang, here:

Yin energies are created by wooden furniture, fabrics, textures, art, creativity, conceptual thinking, and a quiet atmosphere. You can soften and balance the yang energies in your home by bringing in more of these.

Connie, nice advice, Sage is a wonderful purifier..:-)Also, the great calming color of sage green, and essential oils are a wonder...You can buy a book that gives you the properties of the oils to diffuse for different energies..such as lavender is well known for its calming effect..and lemon is great for freshening energies, uplifting and also a purifier used sometimes in hospital rooms...

My bathroom has a "negative" or "oppressive" energy in it, so much so that my 14 year old granddaughter has asked me if the room is haunted by someone! I have only lived here for 2 years and the feeling wasn't there until about a year after I moved in. The only change I made in the room as to paint it a different colour (i.e. blue to match blue hydrangeas in the drapery fabric) There is also an old, yellow nursing rocker in one corner that I have considered removing. Any suggestions on how to bring a balance to the room? It does have on nice bright window in the centre of the back wall, that faces the back yard.

You can definitely feel the energy in someone's home. Everything has a ying and a yang.
