7 Feng Shui Tips for Mobile Homes
Feng Shui is a method of arranging and decorating your home to harmonize with your surroundings. The practice originated in China and had several different sects that developed based on the practice. The version most commonly used in the West is known as Black Sect Tantric Buddhism Feng Shui, also known as Black Hat Feng Shui. While classical and traditional Feng Shui requires a good bit of studying and calculations, black hat Feng Shui is easier to use for the average person.
Another difference is that black hat Feng Shui concentrates on the inside of a person’s home, rather than the outside, which makes it an excellent choice for those that live in mobile homes and still want to harmonize with their environment. In this post, I will be sharing with you the basics that you would need to know to get started, as well as seven tips for enhancing the Feng Shui in your home.
In Feng Shui, the eight cardinal directions are each associated with a life station. In black hat Feng Shui, the cardinal directions have been altered in such a way that they are centered around the entryway to the house, and further the entryway to each room. Through this alteration, the entryway is always associated with the north point of the bagua or energy map.
The cardinal directions are each associated with a life station, one or two elements, and one or more colors. North stands for the career station, water, and the color black. Northeast represents knowledge; water and wood; and blue, green, and black. East is aligned with family and health, wood, and green and blue.
Southeast is representative of wealth; wood and fire; and the colors red, blue, green, and purple. South corresponds with fame, fire, and red. Southwest stands for marriage; fire and metal; and pink, white, and red. West embodies children, metal, and white. Northwest represents helpful people; metal and water; and gray, white, and black. Finally, the center is aligned with balanced yin, earth, and yellow.
After understanding the basics, you can begin to arrange your home using Feng Shui. Here are several tips to help you get started with having a mobile home with good Feng Shui:
Tip 1: Choosing Where to Place the Bagua
There is no limit to how big or small of an area you can use for the bagua. It is recommended to place it over your whole home, but can also be confined to a room, or an even smaller area, like a desk, window garden, or any personal space. Another thing you can do is have it over your whole home, but also have it placed over each room as well. As long as you have it mapped out and organized, there are plenty of options for how to arrange the bagua in your home.
Tip 2: Be Purposeful with Every Change You Make
It is essential to make sure that every change you make in the space is purposeful and has meaning behind it. This will help you build up positive energies and align yourself with the goals you want to achieve in life. It also has the benefit of keeping you from accidentally releasing negative energy into the space. This will help you maintain a healthy balance in your life as well as in the space itself.
Tip 3: Mapping Out the Area
When you are preparing to start the process of using Feng Shui in your home, the first step is to map out the bagua. To do this effectively, it is good to start by dividing the area into nine equal sectors. Each of these sectors will represent an area of the bagua and thus one of the life sectors. The entryway will be the area that represents north. The other areas should be arranged accordingly.
If you are doing Feng Shui for a specific room, the entryway to that room will always be considered north. A good way to do this when including the entire home is to use the floorplan or blueprint of the mobile home and then place the bagua over it. You can then do the same for each room that you wish to have a separate bagua in. This will help you get started in organizing your home.
Tip 4: Take Note of What was Already There
Before you begin to arrange your home using Feng Shui, it is a good idea to look and see what was in each section before you began. This can help you identify how your intuition designed the space you are in. Did you have extra clutter in a space that was designated to an area of your life that has not been very fulfilling? Is there a block in an area of your life that has not been moving forward? Did you already have one of the life stations designed in a way that promotes an area of your life that has been advancing rapidly?
Another part of this process would be to look at each item you have in your home and ask yourself if it is something that has meaning for you. It is a good idea to get rid of any items that you don’t particularly like or that have little meaning to you. This will help you declutter, and make more room for the things that inspire you and give you enjoyment. By making a more fulfilling environment, you will feel freer to pursue an accomplished life.
Tip 5: Be Aware of How Energy Flows Through Space
When using Feng Shui, it is important to make sure that the space you are using has a positive energy flow and promotes harmony between the space and yourself. If a space is too cluttered, it can lead block the energy flow. A space negative energy flow which can feel suffocating and sap energy from you or cause you to have disorganized thoughts. It is important to have some open space to allow energy to come into the area, thus giving you room to breathe and energy to put towards your life’s endeavors.
Tip 6: Represent Each Life Station
Another Feng Shui tip for mobile homes for enhancing what you can get out of each life station or any specific life station that you wish to move forward with in life is to represent the life station somehow. For example, if you are want to concentrate on increasing your knowledge, a good option for you would be to use wood or water in some way in the northeast section of the bagua. This can be done with a piece of wooden furniture, a fish bowl, a water fountain, or a small, wooden carving. The representation can be as subtle or as extravagant as you want.
Tip 7: Feng Shui Cures
If you find that one of your life stations seems to be lacking, there are also a few items that you can add to the representative section that will help enhance energy flow. Getting a pet or procuring a living plant, mainly bamboo, is one of the many options that you have for this. If you don’t have the time or ability to take on a pet or plant, another option would be replicas of animals, such as statues or pictures, or bamboo flutes.
Lighting or objects that refract light are another set of good options, as well as electronics. Objects made of earth materials, such as clay or stone, are also useful in this manner. Things that create sounds, such as wind chimes, or movements, like water fountains or an executive ball clicker, can also be used as cures. Color is an option as well, though that is exclusive to black hat Feng Shui. These cures are sure to enhance whichever life station you choose.
As gone over in this article, you can see that Feng Shui can be as simple or in-depth as you have time for. It is easy to get started and is a great way to help you decorate or organize your life as well as your living space. I hope that these tips were helpful to you. May all of your Feng Shui related endeavors be fruitful, and your living space be full of positive energy.
