Here are things to avoid if you want to have good luck.
Don’t leave dead or withering plants in your home
Houseplants bring a sense of vibrancy and freshness into our homes. They clean the air and create an aesthetic value. But it is a responsibility to keep a plant in a house.
You need to take care of it and ensure it thrives. But is you ignore them to the point that they wither or die, you will face the implications. Dead or withering plants represent death in feng shui and will attract negative energy into your house.
Don’t keep a plain, dull entrance
Your main entrance is the mouth of the feng shui energy and represents an entrance in which all sorts of opportunities come to our lives. Make your main door inviting and luck will start pouring in.
Don’t have clutter
Our homes have precise energy centers according to feng shui. These energy centers are connected to our lives. A lot of clutter and objects in the house will interfere with these energies and prevent them from reaching us.
Removing clutter from your house will free up important corresponding chi centers including the ones connected to our health, career, wealth, family, and love relationship.
Anything that is not useful should be removed from the house to allow the flow of positive feng shui energy.
Don’t keep disempowering artwork in your home
Instead, replace it with art or paintings that uplift and empower you to greatness.
Don’t ignore nature in your home
Plants, water, and even animals all contain vibrant positive energy that can enliven your home. Add items from nature to your home including plants, fabrics, textures, objects, and colors or paintings that represent it.
Don’t sleep, work, or sit in a disempowered position
Map out the commanding position in your office and home and arrange your furniture and bed according to the position. You need to seat or sleep in a manner that you can see the path or the door, but not directly aligned with it.
Don’t have unfriendly objects in your home
This includes furniture, and weapons, and should be removed or kept far from the vicinity. For example, kitchen knives should be out of sight, while sharp-edged furniture should be swapped with round-edged ones.
