Here’s a brief review of key Feng Shui objects you need to know, which are the best adjustments you can place to anchor your Intention in every situation.
These Nine Essential Adjustments are a key part of your Feng Shui tool kit.
1. Water Features – As one of Feng Shui’s Five Elements, Water is always a welcome way to generate a sense of movement and flow.
To keep your life moving in its desired direction, place a water feature near your front door, inside or out.
To attract the most nourishing Chi, place your fountain (here are a few nice Feng Shui fountains on Amazon) so the water flows in towards your home, rather than away from it.
2. Mirrors – often called the “aspirin of Feng Shui,” mirrors bring light into a space, reflect the beauty around you, and create dimension, especially when a Bagua area is missing from your space. Here’s more about the proper use of mirrors in Feng Shui.
3. Lighting – Lift the Chi of any area with good-quality lighting. From candles to reading lamps, and from chandeliers to torchieres, lights attract attention and life, creating an attractive place for Chi energy to circulate.
4. Crystals – Crystals contain a power within them that cannot be duplicated with any other object. Hang a clear faceted crystal in your window to attract the sparkle of the sun and its full color spectrum into your space.
Crystals from the earth such as quartz or amethyst are an important source of Earth energy that bring a sense of groundedness to your life.
5. Sound Makers – Sound-makers such as wind chimes are a classic Feng Shui adjustment that stir up energy in areas that would otherwise feel lifeless. Hung indoors they lift the Chi of your space, while outdoors they attract Chi to your door. Here’s more on using wind chimes as a Feng Shui adjustment.
6. Objects with Movement – Mobiles, colorful flags and “wind-dancers” activate Chi energy in a beautiful, mesmerizing way. Flags can also be placed strategically to complete the shape of your home’s Bagua map if it is missing a sector. Here’s more on missing Bagua areas.
7. Living Things – There’s a wide range of living things you can bring into your space to activate Chi. From live plants for the Wood element, to well-loved pets for the Fire element, living things require your attention, which is a natural source of positive energy.
If you can’t have living things in your space – lack of light, or perhaps your building doesn’t allow pets – representations of living things will do, such as high-quality artificial plants and pictures of animals. For the best Chi energy results, be sure to keep your these things clean and fresh.
8. Artwork – Art is one of the most important of Feng Shui’s Chi adjustments because it is so universal, yet so personal. Look around your home right now to make sure the art you’re living with makes you feel great every time you see it.
It’s always better to have no art at all than art that depresses your spirits. If something is dragging you down, remove it from your sight and see how much better you feel. For starters, check out my articles about good Feng Shui bedroom art here.
9. Solid and Heavy Objects – Heavy things anchor Chi energy. When you have the sense that your life is directionless, or feel that your intentions need an extra boost, place a weighty object in the Bagua sector you are focusing on. A heavy plant, a beautiful piece of heavy crystal, even an extra-heavy piece of furniture will do.
With every Feng Shui Chi adjustment, your Intention gives them their power.
Place the objects with your intentions firmly in mind to do the best job of anchoring or activating the blessings of Chi energy in your life.
