Window treatments like curtains and blinds are essential Feng Shui remedies for improving Chi energy flow in your home or office, day or night.
Healthy Chi nourishes you best when you contain it gently. It does not like to feel trapped, neither can it provide you with all its life-giving benefits if it flows through your environment too quickly.
So during the daytime, for the best Feng Shui use sheer, light window treatments that allow Chi to flow easily in and out of your space.
Adjustable shades like these are ideal, allowing light in while containing Chi to any degree you like.
When the sun goes down at night, views disappear and bare windows become huge black rectangles, adding an overdose of Yin energy to your space.
Safety (one of Feng Shui’s key concerns) also becomes an issue, since folks outside can see into your space more easily than you can see them.
For the best nighttime Feng Shui, hang solid curtains or shades you can close completely.
The window treatments you choose contain your healthy Chi energy through the night, to be released when you throw open your windows in the light of day.
