Creating a Home Sanctuary Using Feng Shui

We all want to feel renewed and energized after a stressful day at work. Some people make an effort to go to a spa or a church or simply a peaceful place to sit down and have some peace and quiet. However, going somewhere to relax may not always be an option, especially for people who have busy schedules.

Ideally, everyone should be able to find refuge within the comforts of their own home. Many people have a special place in their homes that they call their own sanctuary, and it is important to create something similar for yourself.  A home sanctuary is ideal for those who want to have a moment of peace without having to go anywhere. You can simply sit down and relax anytime you want. It provides a place where you can rejuvenate yourself and even reconnect with your spirituality.

To make your home sanctuary a success, here are some helpful Feng Shui tips you can incorporate into your room:

  • Size is not an issue, location is. Whether you have a huge home sanctuary or a small nook, the important thing is its location inside the house. Find a place where it is away from potential chaos. Make sure that it also has a window and can let the sun in. Ideally, a good location is the lower left hand corner, or Harmony Area, of the house.
  • Add relaxing visuals and sounds. Make it a place where you easily rest when you sit down. Add beautiful paintings or natural decor that can make you feel calm. Add a water features as well and top it off with soothing music.
  • Avoid clutter in your home sanctuary. If there is one thing that hampers harmony in the house, it is clutter. If there is clutter in your home sanctuary, it is very difficult to find peace. Make sure that you have only a few things, necessary things inside your sanctuary to avoid clutter.
  • Let the fresh air and sunshine in. Open the windows or add a light window treatment. Create an ambiance where you feel closer to nature.
  • Create comfort in your sanctuary. Add a sofa or cushions on the floor. Make it a place that feels cozy, yet clean.
