New year, new you! As we start off 2023, you may be looking for some new ways that you can make improvements in your life, whether you are focused on a specific area of your life or you are looking to make improvements in various ways. Improving your life starts with yourself – with your energy, your mindset, and your motivation. Generally speaking, when people think of improving themselves, they look for ways to improve physically and mentally. What many people do not realize is that feng shui can have many benefits for you throughout your life and can positively impact you physically and mentally.

What is feng shui?

Feng shui is translated to “wind and water” and works to help improve energy in our lives throughout our spaces. Feng shui has been around for over 6,000 years and is tried and true for many. When you look at your home, do you find that it reflects you and your current energy? If not, feng shui can be a great way to align you with goals you have in your life.

Here are some of the many benefits of feng shui. 

Feng Shui

1 – Can help you make the space to find love. 

Energetically speaking, you must clear out space in order to make space for new things to come. This directly translates into your relationships, especially when it comes to love.

Feng shui can include ensuring that your personal space in your home is presentable to others and will make another person feel comfortable – such as having space in your closet or having things in twos.

Another powerful way that you can attract love through feng shui is by adding peach blossoms to your space! 


2 – Can enhance your wealth. 

Did you know that there are ways that you can attract wealth and financial stability through feng shui? Some of the most popular ways that you can attract enhancing your wealth include using décor that features water, such as a fish tank, or add in anything that represents growth, such as plants or flowers or gardens. You want to focus on items in your home that are vibrant and will help to stimulate prosperity. 


3 – Can provide stability to your career. 

If you are looking to become more stable in your career this year, tap into feng shui to help welcome some good luck. Whether you are looking to solve a problem that you have at work, get a promotion, land a big deal, or find a new passion, feng shui can help.

One way that you can attract career stability is by buying some goldfish, which are a symbol of overcoming any obstacles that come your way.

Making use of light is also a great way to get the boost that you need in your career – try working by natural sunlight or placing a lamp in the Southern part of your house. Red lights are also known for giving good luck in stepping up if you are expecting a promotion. 


4 – Can increase energy and make your feel more motivated. 

Having trouble staying motivated or having the energy to get all your tasks done? Nothing a little feng shui can’t fix! First, add some motion throughout your rooms, whether that be a small fountain, or even a fan that will add some circulation around you – especially if you are someone who works from home.

Next, keep the colors in your home in mind – if you are not feeling comfortable in your space, you are bound to be less productive.

Green and white are great colors to incorporate into your space, as green represents balance and white gives you more creative energy.
