5 tips to bring Feng Shui to your outdoor space edition 2021

So you’ve mastered the art of peace and harmony inside of your home, but what happens when you need a little Feng Shui for your outdoor?
The patio, pergola, or backyard is where most of your time will be spent during the summer, so might as well make it a place of calm.

In Feng Shui, the high temperatures and bright sunshine of summer are associated with yang energy.
To balance this strong, yang energy, focus Feng Shui for your outdoor in rearrangements like cooling down, or adding the counterbalancing yin, or quieter, energy.

Discover ewasy tips for bringing Feng Shui to your own personal great outdoors.

1. Clear the Area

That means doing both a wash-down of the surface and clearing out old furniture and decor broken or not needed.
A component of achieving harmony through Feng Shui is surrounding yourself with the things you really love, as this can greatly increase your own energy and happiness.

Don't let the clutter take place, in Feng Shui space and volume are capital to feel the sense of lightness.

2. Consult Your Bagua

The bagua is the main chart of feng shui. It relates to all aspects of your life and helps you to understand where certain pieces of furniture and decor should be placed. Once you have it handy, you can arrange your outdoor seating area into the family area of the bagua so that space feels as comfortable and welcoming as possible. And your grill can be placed in the health or wealth corner, as a reminder of an abundance of food.

3. Be Mindful of Your Senses

According to the principles of feng shui, you should be sure to decorate your outdoor space with aromatic herbs or fragrant flowers, as well as wind chimes or a small fountain.
These smells and sounds will help keep you serene and grounded while you’re entertaining or lounging alone during the summertime.

4. The Color Schemes

Color is incredibly important in achieving feng shui. When you’re planting your flowers, be sure to include purple or blue varieties in the wealth corner. White, pink, and red flowers in the romance and marriage corner. If you have a fence, paint it in red or green, they are lucky colors!

5. Make the five elements present

Feng Shui divides the world into five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. If you have an space that doesn't feel quite right, try balancing the elements to make it more comfortable. Each element invokes a different mood, creating a customized space that's beneficial for your personality and goals.
