Every day we must have the habit of opening the windows, pulling the curtains, and opening the blinds. It is important to renew the air. Both sunlight and ventilation are your allies against the bad energies, let the wind flow so that the bad energies can be taken out of your house.

Even if it's cold, you should open the windows at least for ten minutes.

3. Do not accumulate too many objects

A lot of time we buy clothes, shoes, furniture, etc. without any real need but just to feel satisfied. We advise you to not do that, at the end they are just objects and too many of them will block the positive emotions and spirituality in your house. 

Once you discard the unnecessary objects and be surrounded only by the one's which you really need, you will experience a calmer and more positive ambiance.

4. Lighten up

It is important to light up your home and try not to have dark areas. A floor lamp or table lamp can be a simple beginners solution for the problem.

5. Decorate the space with peace lilies

The art of Feng Shui recommends that we put plants and flowers inside our house since they are energy regenerators. 

If you have problems with humidity or infiltration at home, buy a peace lily, this plant will attract positive energy and does not require too much sunlight or maintenance.

6. Keep things clean and tidy

Cleaning is not the most enjoyable of tasks, but it is critical to ward off negative energies. A clean home creates a sense of well-being. Nothing like maintaining a weekly cleaning routine and small habits in your daily life such as arranging shoes, coats, mail, etc.

7. Discarding broken objects

This one is a no-brainer. Broken objects create a sense of negativity around them as well as carry the risk of hurting someone in case they are made of glass or metal.

8. Decorate with mirrors

Mirrors are great allies in interior designing, but above all they attract positive energies and help clear the mind. If you do not have mirrors at home, you should defnitely bet on them!

9. Take care of the entrance hall

It is at the entrance of the house that we must begin to attract good energies. Put flowers, mirrors, or other beautiful objects, as these will transmit positive feelings when you enter the house.

10. Salt!

If you might not have heard of this one before, it might surprise you. But many experts believe that salt does have the ability to absorb negative energies, especially in the case when you move into a new house or office that you do not feel the most comfortable in.
