My post Do You Rent? 9 Feng Shui Tips That Make You Feel Like An Owner continues to be one of the most popular on my blog.
Rather than giving up all control to your landlord and thereby giving up some control over your life, acting like an owner of your rental space by creating good Feng Shui helps you achieve your dreams more quickly and decisively.
Here are five more ways to make your rental Feng-Shui-friendly so you can attract all the positive Chi you deserve.
- Take charge of your lighting. Replace dim (and usually ugly) fixtures with ones you love and that add a warm glow to your space. While you’re at it put ceiling lights on dimmers to take the edge off their harsh glare.
- Create ease in your kitchen. Your kitchen is key to your health and wealth, so make the most of yours. Easy to install, under-cabinet drawers and a pull-out wastebasket make the most of every inch of space as well as making it supremely easy to get at everything you use.
- Take command at the stove. Many apartment stoves face directly into a back wall, putting you well out of command whenever you cook. Hanging a mirror over the stove is yet another way to put yourself in charge of your space, and your life.
- Clarify your windows. Rental apartments windows may be left broken, painted shut or worse. Your windows are your eyes on the world so make an essential investment in getting them fixed. And don’t wait for your landlord to clean them! If you feel nervous about doing it yourself there are plenty of window-cleaning companies just waiting to do it for you 🙂
- Create welcoming Feng Shui, inside and out. Your entryway and the area just outside your door make a powerful first impression. Act as if the outer hallway belongs to you to the extent your building’s rules allow: a welcome mat, working lighting fixtures and clean floors and walls attract good Chi energy and life opportunities to your door.
In big cities it’s easy to live a whole lifetime in rental apartments so it’s imperative to take charge to the greatest extent you can.
