Feng Shui Your Home With Lighting

(ARA) - Traditional Feng Shui utilizes the five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water as remedies to energetic issues in a house or building. The basic concepts are simple: use common sense in furniture placement, keep it free of clutter and make sure the room's flow or arrangement allows for conversation.

Feng Shui works in every facility: residential, commercial, healthcare, or restaurant.

Lights are powerful feng shui cures. Light itself is considered an important feng shui asset in any environment.

The experts at YLighting share a few easy-to-grasp fundamentals on feng shui and lighting design:

* Soften sharp corners of a room using accent lighting. This increases the energy flow and creates a relaxed atmosphere.

* Chandeliers should not hang above a chair. In fact, a person should never be expected to sit directly below a hanging object.

* Floor lamps can be used in any number of ways. They are practical for illuminating a dark section of the room and can be feng shui "fixes," shining upward to lift a sunken room or stimulating chi flow in a wealth corner.

* The living room is a yang room. The yang quality is embodied by the activity and brightness, which are ideal for a family or entertaining.

* Mirrors should be used behind the stove when our back is to the kitchen entrance while cooking, on the wall in front of you upon entering the main doorway, or at the bottom of a steep stairs to slow down the Chi going downstairs. (Chi is the nonbiological self -- our spirit or essence).
