How to Feng Shui your Home for the Holiday Season

The holiday season is all about good tidings, merriment, peace towards all, which is why it's a perfect time to be adding Feng Shui to your home. Feng Shui to create a welcoming, harmonious atmosphere for your festivities and invites more of this positive energy into your home and into your life for the holiday season. By embracing Feng Shui principles, you can enhance the holiday spirit and ensure your home is filled with this good energy.

Here are my top tips on easy and practical ways to Feng Shui your home for the holiday season.


Do an Autumn Decluttering

Before diving into Feng Shui adjustments, begin by decluttering your home. In Feng Shui, decluttering is often the first step to take, and there are many important reasons why decluttering is necessary to improve the energy of a home. Clutter not only blocks the flow of energy but can also make your home feel cramped, which is far from the warm and inviting ambiance you want during the holidays. Try an autumn decluttering to tidy up your home for the holiday season.

Add a Wreath to your Front Door

Your front door is an important feature of your home according to Feng Shui. This is the area that invites prosperity and good energy into the home. To help energy finds its way into your home, make sure that this spot stands out. Make sure it is tidy and add some elements like a wreath on your front door. In various cultures, wreaths have a long tradition of inviting good energy into the home, and in Feng Shui, this living energy also attracts more positive vibes into your space.

Place your Christmas Tree in your Corner

If you decorate your home for the holidays with a Christmas tree, there is one spot in your home that is better than the rest. And that is your corners! Room corners collect stagnant and dead energy in Feng Shui. This is why a common cure is to place objects like furniture pieces and house plants in corners to prevent dead energy (or clutter) from collecting. Plus, a Christmas tree also contains living qi and can help restore this spot with fresh energy.

Deck your Halls with Garland + Mistletoe

Not everyone still decks the halls like they did in the classic Christmas song, but you really should! That is because these fresh pieces of garland, mistletoe and other botanicals help bring that fresh and living qi into the home, helping to circulate the energy throughout your spaces so you can feel good in every room!

Enhance the Heart of your Home

The kitchen is the heart of your home, especially during the holidays. It also happens that this is true in Feng Shui as well, as the kitchen is where we fill our home with good qi. Ensure your stove and oven are clean and in working order, as they represent your family's prosperity. Fill your kitchen with the comforting aromas of holiday cooking. Adding red and green accents, like dish towels and tablecloths, can bring the vibrancy of the holiday season into your kitchen.

Add Accent Lighting

Feng Shui emphasizes the importance of lighting. Lights connect to the fire element and during the colder months, this element is beneficial to add more o. That's because winter connects to the water element and Feng Shui strives for balance and harmony. During the holiday season, consider using soft, warm lighting to create a relaxed and cozy atmosphere and a nice fiery glow. Opt for candlelight or warm LED string lights to promote relaxation and harmony.

Adding Feng Shui to your home, any time of year, can bring more positivity, joy, harmony, and balance into your home and into your life. For the holidays, why not use Feng Shui to bring even more of this good energy into your home.
