A Feng Shui tip for welcoming spring energy!

Apr 19, 2022 | Blog, Feng Shui, Health Tips, Liver, Spring, Uncategorized, Wood Element | 6 comments

This week in class, I shared a Feng Shui tip to help you welcome in Spring energy as you clear out some stagnant energy of winter. When you welcome new energy into your home it helps your health, energy, mood and liver! As you know, what is happening outside in nature is also happening inside your body. But you may not know about the other influencers such as the energy of your home and your surrounding yard and property. Energy needs to flow smoothly and unimpeded for you to have the best health and life.

I like to share this tip every spring so you can harness and benefit from clearing out stagnant qi (chee) and welcome in the fresh new qi from springtime.

Watch the video to learn more:

Here’s a summary of this week’s tip.

  1. Clean your entryway inside and out. Sweep away any cobwebs or old leaves. Wash the door inside and out, along with the doorknob, floor, curtains, light fixtures, windows and walls.
  2. Do the same to the back door.
  3. Open the front and back doors and welcome spring energy to flow through your home, clearing out the yin/stagnant winter energy.
  4. Clear clutter from your entryway, porch, floor, closet, etc. Put away what you don’t use, file the papers, find a spot or create a system for all the things.
  5. If you have a hallway that is in view of your entrance, clear anything that might be in the hallway.
  6. LOVE YOUR ENTRYWAY! Do what it takes! Hang a nice picture, place a special shell or rock that you love on a table, keep a beautiful scarf hanging on a hook or anything that will make you smile when you enter your home.

This simple exercise will make you feel lighter and bring more spring energy (Wood Element) into your home and your body, supporting your liver in detoxifying and your tendons and ligaments to be more flexible! You may notice increased energy, more feelings of happiness, improved vision, more balanced hormones, fewer allergies, and less anger, anxiety and frustration! Give it a try and let me know in the comments how you feel after!

Thanks for reading and happy spring!

    Hi Sue,
    We moved into a new (to us) house in August and this is the first time we have opened our windows. What a delight. More details to follow but I am feeling the need to get outside to weed and garden on this glorious spring day!

    Thank you Sue for these great ideas I’ve been collecting birchbark when I go hiking so I put some at my front and back doors and it makes me smile 😊 Thanks again🌻

    I might create a tiny little habit around doorways (Tiny Habits by Dr BJ Fogg). “Every-time I walk through this door I celebrate life”. Could be anything. Then high five it or celebrate in some way.

      I love this!
