Feng shui is a very personal practice, and I’m a big advocate of working with a practitioner who resonates with you, but there are also basic feng shui adjustments each of us can make to bring more positive energy and harmony into our homes. This week, I’m sharing nine of my favorite little tweaks to feng shui your living space.

Try one or two (or all nine!) of these feng shui adjustments if you’re dipping a toe into feng shui, making small tweaks while you look for a consultant or just want to make a few changes to enhance your feng shui. These are simple tasks that can be done any time!

This week's podcast is all about space clearing! If you've read the Holistic Spaces blog, you may know that space clearing is incredibly important in feng shui. There are many ways to clear your space, and each of them works just as well, but what's so important about clearing space before using feng shui adjustments?

Do you have any upcoming events or auspicious dates that may need space clearing? Try one of these methods or enlist the help of a feng shui expert and see if you can feel the difference in your space afterward!

If you have questions about space clearing or other green design or feng shui aspects, please let us know! You could even be featured in our Q&A Sunday series.

If you are interested in more private consultation or have urgent questions, check out our new 15-minute consultation call option.
