4 Feng Shui Things to Do When Moving Home
Feng Shui is a popular Chinese geomancy not only in its country of origin but all over the world. If you search the web, you will see that there are Feng Shui tips for all things imaginable, including for when you are moving home. The problem is that many of them are not particularly practical. While the abundance of Feng Shui pieces of advice related to relocations may have the power to invite good energy into your home they, will probably overcomplicate your already complicated move. To give you an idea of what we are talking about we will list just a few of these unpractical tips:
- Boil water on your moving day
- Set up a bunch of shrines around your new home
- Bring plenty of rice with you
- Cook a dessert in your oven
Even if you use a reliable van hire service in London and manage to transport all of your items in one trip, you will still need to unload the moving vehicle, carry all moving boxes into the house and unpack. That is why we have decided to present you only with practical Feng Shui tips which will help you enjoy a more stress-free relocation without having to perform any strange rituals.
Things to buy for your new home
When was the last time you replaced your broom and mop with new ones? If it’s been a while, do that now! According to Feng Shui, if you bring your old mop and broom, you will bring your old problems with you to your new home. We would like to add that you will also bring along a lot of dirt and bacteria. So, wouldn’t it be better if you just invest in new cleaning supplies? They are not expensive and by doing so you will have more room in the transit van.
Keep things positive and friendly
A house move has the power to make people moody. Therefore, don’t be surprised if your entire family is wearing their smiles upside-down on the day of your relocation. The problem is that negative emotions and stress can result in a conflict. A nice Feng Shui tip is to keep things positive, light and friendly. Even if someone makes you angry on this day, do not lose your temper. That will not only invite conflict into your new home but it will also make your move more difficult that is has to be.
Establish a nice atmosphere in your new home
Feng Shui gurus advise people who are about to move to place a few small decorations and some flowers around the house prior to their moving day to set a relaxing and positive tone in their new home. We find this idea very practical because it will make your new house feel like a home and it will help you to quickly settle in it.
Not a good time to rest
If your moving day has kicked off early in the morning, you will probably feel like taking a nap in the afternoon. Try to fight this urge. From a Feng Shui point of view, this will invite illness and laziness into your new house. The way we see things, you can’t waste your time because you need to start unpacking.
