Good Feng Shui: Advice for a Happy Life

One of the central tenants of feng shui is that everything in the world has energy. Human beings, for example, have energy. What type of energy is within you? When I look at an environment to determine if it has good feng shui, I want to see balance and harmony, little negative energy and an abundance of positive energy. This is also true for human beings as well.

There is something to be said for first impressions. We have all met someone that we just did not like, whether it was because of their appearance or the way they acted. Similarly, we have all met someone that we have immediately felt close to. When I encounter a person that I cannot relate to and just want to walk away from, I feel no pull. Nothing is encouraging me to interact with them. However, with others, I want to get to know them better. I feel drawn to them.

We can manipulate our own energy. We have control over our actions and thoughts. In order to make sure you have good feng shui, use the following twelve tips.

Find the Positive

It is important to go through life as a positive individual. When you meet someone or have an interaction, look for the good in it. If you try hard enough, you can find good in anything. We all have hard times. However, even among the anxiety, sadness or stress, there is something to be learned or taken from the experience. Do not dwell on the negative. Focus on the positive.

Do Not Criticize

Constructive feedback is good. Criticism is not. Do not criticize your friends, family members or acquaintances. You cannot take back the harsh words that you say. Criticism cuts deeply.

Do Not Blame

It is easy to blame someone else for your problems. After all, when you place the blame on them, you are inferring that they were in the wrong. As a result, you do not have to accept responsibility for what happened. Rather than blaming, be a problem solver.

Practice Kindness

You will run into people that are not very nice. Turn the other cheek. Practice kindness with everyone you come across. If you are not nice to someone, chances are, they are going to treat you the same way. If someone is not nice, be as polite as you can back to them. You have not allowed that person to change your behavior and you have done everything you can to create good energy.

Manage Anger

Anger management skills are important. When you are angry, you are much more likely to feel out of control. You may say things you do not mean. Instead of speaking, just breathe. Leave the situation and come back when you feel calmer. You may not even realize what you are angry about. Once you return, talk calmly and try to come to a successful resolution.

Take Responsibility for Mistakes

If you make a mistake, own up to it. Do your best to make amends. If you try and conceal what happened, you are being dishonest. That is negative energy. If you speak up and say that you were wrong, you get rid of that negative energy and can start fresh again.


Learn for your entire life. As you learn, you develop into a richer person. You have more to talk about with other people. They want to be around you more.

Pay Attention

When others talk, make sure you listen. Show them that you care through your actions. If you show this kindness to others, they are likely to return the favor. Beyond that, you will draw more people toward you, the kind of people you want to be around.

Treat Others How You Want To Be Treated

Do not ignore someone that is trying to get your attention. Show them that they matter to you. Obviously, this is how you would want someone else to treat you. Show people that you give more than you take.

Help Others

Serving others does a great deal of good, not only for them but for you as well. It is just good karma. You are on the Earth only a short period of time. You need to make it matter. Ignore the things that are not important and try and create a better world for everyone.


Try not to be so serious all the time. If you cannot see the fun in life, you will not enjoy it very much. Of course, you have responsibilities that need to be met. But, have fun while you are doing it! Be a hard worker but take some time for yourself, too. Life is good. Pause every once in a while, smile and go on about your business.


A sense of humor is a really wonderful thing. It draws people to you like bees are drawn to honey. Everyone needs a break from the stress in the world. It is easy to get caught up in what is not right rather than what is right. If you can see the humor, even in bad situations, you will be a much better person for it.

Is good feng shui a part of your life? Are you exuding positive energy? If not, you can change for the better. Good feng shui is something that is attainable for everyone. Just think of how amazing the world would be if everyone strives for good feng shui.
