Feng Shui for Better Emotional Stability
Many people today are looking for ways to help themselves achieve peace, serenity, and no stress. So many people have tried acupuncture, meditation, sleep, and alcohol to find that feeling. Feng Shui is a method of thinking that uses your house (Bagua) as the basis for better emotional stability and physical well-being.
It has four sections as signified by the earth’s directions, North, South, East, and West. Within each of those directions also lies a connection to the elements in nature such as water, wood, earth, fire, wind, and metal. Feng Shui is also a method of living that you use in your house.
It deals with its placement (where things go, you fit in), your birthday, and your element to decide how to be. Using this as a backdrop, you can make your house a very peaceful and restful place.
Furniture, Colors, and More
Here are some ways to achieve that using Feng Shui. You want to choose colors that help you feel safe and comfortable in your environment. But also keep in mind design and color rules. Some of what Feng Shui says will work may disagree with what you want. They say your bathroom should be a comfortable place for you.
The colors in it should be blues and browns with earth and metal tones for your furniture. The window dressings should not be fussy and versatile. A lot of people like to use vinyl blinds or blackout blinds.
Your house rooms, such as your other bedrooms and living rooms, should complement each other. But they do follow certain concepts. Using your birth sign, you can design each room to emulate the safe place for you within the confines of Feng Shui’s religion. You say what?!! The colors you choose, and the furniture you choose all help you create a feeling of emotional stability in your house.

The basic rule of decorating and placing furniture in your house is virtually the same for each room. Fresh air, no clutter, and no electrical equipment. This is specific for the bedroom. Put your bed in a place that commands your attention, and then decorate around the bed. Fire and earth are good colors for the bedroom. Also, only bring art that makes you happy.
For your bathroom, Feng Shui says to keep it clean and orderly – sparkly is the word they use. Again keep it uncluttered. Keep it light and white. Avoid watercolors.
#6. Home Office
Many people have home offices in their homes, so how do you decorate your home office? Feng Shui says to use water and metal colors in your office. Create an appearance of light and airy with calm. Remember to use your sense of well-being in your house.
