This science is not about transforming the structure of a house but essentially about making our homes evolve with us. Though nearly imperceptible, these small tweaks can apparently have a profound effect on our daily lives.

The south-west corner of your home is the best place to place this multi-gem tree.

c) Coins for Wealth

Keeping this at your home is supposed to bring you overall luck and fortune. Place him in the south-east direction and discover great health and fortune knocking on your doors.
e) Flowing Water for Health
One should install a painting that depicts flowing water. This would mean incoming good health, wealth and prosperity.
f) Dragon Turtle for Long Life
In Chinese mythology, dragons are considered to be the sign of courage and good luck, while the turtle is symbolic of longevity. Dragons and turtles both being celestial animals, the combined forces of these two creatures blesses the home with all things good. It is recommended to install this mural to the main front door to protect the members of the family.
g) Wind Chimes for Good Vibes
These chimes deliver good vibes to the home in general – hang them near your window or gate to reap the benefits. Most pertinent areas include the eastern, south-eastern or southern corner of your living abode.
In addition to the above, Feng Shui principles also advocate that one should keep their home decluttered to improve clarity of thoughts. The main door at the entrance of the house should be strong and not creak – it is after all, the main portal through which energy enters the home. One can also have fish as pets in aquariums to attract positive energy.
So let’s invite the good vibes home!
