1. The direction of the Living Room

The location of your living room is vital, check out the following points to know why:

Two outer Walls

The direction of the living room in the house plays an important role. The location is the main driving force of energy in the place. The living room must have a minimum of two outer walls. It means that there should be such a Feng Shui living room layout that it is closer to the outer part of the house, and the energy directly enters the living area first.

Should Not Be the Center

You have to keep in mind that the energy should not travel via other rooms because it gets slow and stale.

Also, this design of a living room makes it perfect for different Feng Shui energies around to activate faster as soon as they come in contact with some good energy.

The living room should not be located right at the center of your house. You have to ensure that the location is not so deep that you have to walk through more than one room to reach the living space. 

Because the living room is located so deep, the energy or ‘qi’ which travels into it will not be able to reach quickly and have obstacles. Also, till the time it comes the living room, the flow of energy may become slow or could stop.

The Ventilation Matters

As per Feng Shui living room décor ideas, the living room should have more than one exterior wall so that it receives an ample amount of sunlight. Apart from this natural light coming due to the walls, the windows will also fetch in the fresh air and more sunlight.

Your living room must be well-lit and well-ventilated so that good energy, along with the fresh air, keeps flowing correctly. It is an optimal part of Feng Shui – health and vitality.

No facing doors

As per a Feng Shui living room, two doors should not be facing each other. The tunnel effect is created, and fresh energy goes away as soon as it enters the other door. It means that the other rooms are deprived of positive vibes that could enter the house.

Correct Number of Doors and Windows

As per the Feng Shui living room rules, there should be proper ventilation facilities in the living room. Simultaneously, make sure that there are not even three doors and four windows in the room. The presence of several doors and windows in a living room creates chaos in the qi current. It can have a damaging effect on people present in the living room.

2. The layout of a Feng Shui Living Room

After deciding the location of your living room, it is now essential to optimize the layout. Keep these tips in your mind while doing this:

Spacious

Make sure that the living room in your house is spacious enough for the family members and also for guests.

An ideal Feng Shui living room should be spacious enough to accommodate anybody who comes to visit you and perfect for the whole family to gather together. A spacious living room encourages fresh qi energy to house freely. Come inside the house.

Comfortable

It is not always necessary to have a large living space to make it comfortable enough for everyone. An ideal living room should be spacious and comfortable, no matter how big/small it is. The main trick to make a room more comfortable is how you lay the furniture and how perfectly you arrange it.

Another factor that affects the comfort level is the choice of furniture. Make sure whatever you invest in is spacious as well as comfortable.

Walking space

An ideal Feng Shui living room should have furniture placed so that there is enough space for anyone to walk around. It means that there is enough natural space within the placement of all the furniture.

In case there is a chair placed in an awkward position, there are high chances that you might get hurt while trying to walk past. Apart from being a health hazard, such an improper setting of furniture prevents the free flow of qi energy.

The fireplace

Did you know that the fireplace in your living space is of high importance? A fireplace in the north-east direction encourages calm and peaceful vibes. It also helps in good education.

On the other hand, a fireplace in the south and south-west brings in more love and romance. You can use colors such as orange, red, pink, and shades of green on the whole southern side of the living room for more benefits as per Feng Shui  Bagua.

The natural view

Like you already know, windows enhance the flow of good qi energy into the living room. The furniture should also be arranged, keeping in mind the position of the windows.

A good Feng Shui living room furniture placement means you can admire the outside view from anywhere in the living room. It would be best if you also hung mirrors in proper places to help get some more view of nature outside, from areas that are not directly across the windows.

Placing the television

The Feng Shui living room TV placement can benefit you in several ways. As per the Feng Shui, Bagua map of a living room, placing the television in the north side of the living room is the best. This positioning is known to bring you better luck in your career.

On the other hand, placing your television in the south can fetch you fame and good luck as well. Televisions are said to have a lot of action or yang energy, which activates the other powers in the place it is fixed in.

3. The layout of Feng Shui Living Room Furniture

Our living rooms are mainly made up of our furniture and decorations. It is time now to take a look at what furniture can benefit us as per Feng Shui.

Rounded Furniture

As per Feng Shui rules, corners are known as poison arrows. These point towards negative energy in a particular place.

Hard angles of any furniture signify the restlessness of a living room. It is, therefore, better if you try and avoid edges and corners wherever possible.

You can invest in furniture with rounded edges to avoid any negative energy flowing inside your living room. Such furniture also makes the room look stylish and pretty.

A Sofa in the Living Room

You will be amazed to learn that out of all the furniture in your living room; the sofa is of utmost importance. There are many Feng Shui rules related to choosing the correct sofa for your living space. The couch must sit against a broad wall. It gives it stability and also makes it safer to sit on. Other than that, the sofa should be soft and comfortable with making it pleasant for whoever sits on it.

Chairs on The Side

A living room should be such that it can accommodate every one of the family and guests together. It is, therefore, essential to place one love seat and one or two single chairs to complete a whole sofa setting. This arrangement also makes space for a lovely coffee table and hence the perfect location for a tea-time show together.

Your coffee table

As you know, furniture or chairs with curved edges are always better in a Feng Shui living room; one exception is your coffee table. A coffee table is first essential to complete the perfect living room scene, and second, placing a square one is considered more auspicious.

Your coffee table is mainly used by people sitting around to place different things and thus to provide more comfort

Lighting

Proper lights in the living room activate qi energy as per Feng Shui rules. Natural light is the most crucial form of lighting for a living room. Along with that, artificial lighting arrangements also help in modifying the ambiance and for other purposes. You can fix scones and table lamps as they provide light flowing upward. Overhead lights help in other functional tasks.

4. The Ultimate Vibe of the Living Room

More than following a few rules, Feng Shui is about the proper arrangement of everything to make a particular space look spacious, bright, and also attractive to all the positive energy. It is the ultimate vibe of a living room that makes it a good Feng Shui living room.

You can use spacious, multi-purpose furniture to store in shambles and clean up the rest of the room. It saves time, energy, and space.

It would help if you also chose complementary art overworks that depict sad stories, wars, struggle, or crime. For example, you can fill your walls with pleasant images of people smiling, flowers, beautiful scenes of nature, or other such optimistic pieces.

You can place an aquarium in the north or south-east side of the living room as it is said to bring in wealth and opportunities. The preferable shapes are square and rectangular, followed by round ones.

What is Bagua

There are two vastly different schools of Bagua, and you need to choose one to avoid any confusion or obstacles. You can also read about both and decide what’s more appealing to you. It is, however, crucial that you choose only one style of Bagua and stick to it.

Here are the two schools of Bagua:

  1. Classical Feng Shui school of Bagua
  2. Traditional Feng Shui school of Bagua

In this style, you have to divide the home floor plan into nine boxes, and each of the squares will refer to one out of the eight most important Bagua spaces. The 9th will be the Yin Yang position and also the Center of the House and will connect all the other eight boxes.

You can put screens or shelves to make a different space in the same room. You can put a line pf plants or maybe a bookshelf in between the living and the dining area to make some extra space which looks like a separate room.

Make sure you are not using large furniture and instead go for space-saving, multi-purpose furniture. Along with that, hang floor to ceiling curtains and do not depend on one overhead light. Invest in a few lamps which can spread the light evenly throughout the room.

Which color is best for living room as per Vaastu?

There are a few colors that help to bring in positive energy inside the house. As per Vaastu rules, colors, including white, light yellow, green, and blue, are the best choices for a living room. These help in bringing in happiness and tranquility in the house.

You can use these colors to create a monotone or use a combination of these colors according to your choice. Try to avoid black, red, and other fiery colors for your living room walls as per Vaastu.

Where do Feng Shui plants go in the house?

As per rules, Feng Shui plants in the living room should be best placed in the office area, the windows, or in the other Bagua areas. Putting a plant means nourishing that particular zone with the wood element of Feng Shui. The east, south-east, and south Bagua areas are the best to decorate with Feng Shui plants.

These are the basic rules and guidelines of everything you need to know about living room Feng Shui.

Quick Guide For Cosmic Energy

The word “Cosmic” is generally used about the universe. Cosmic energy is the highest form of life force that is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient- it exists in the cosmos, between the galaxies, and in space.

It is this energy that animates life and maintains balance in the entire universe. Other names used in Cosmic Energy are super-consciousness, higher consciousness, supreme consciousness, chi, and life force energy.

In Hinduism, cosmic energy is often known as Shakti, the “Divine Mother” and responsible for all creation. Shakti represents power, might, superior strength, and capability.

Shakti is worshipped as one of the Hindu gods. Hindus also associate the energy with the almighty God and the “Brahmand” in the Upanishads.

The Hindus also refer to this external spiritual energy as prana (a Sanskrit word), which can further be described as kundalini’s life energy source.

Kundalini is a psycho-spiritual force that is considered quite mysterious in East Asian Cultures.

How Does Cosmic Energy Work?

The universe is made up of energy that was in existence long before the universe came to being, and this is this energy the created the universe. It can be found in all living and non-living things.

It moves at such a fast speed, faster than we can even think. This same energy moves everything on earth, making everything to be interconnected. 

Cosmic energy is a life force that flows through our bodies following predefined pathways referred to as chakras and through a field referred to as the aura. It’s this energy that nourishes the body’s cells, which in turn supports the organs in their functions.

An interruption to the flow of cosmic energy results in diminished function, leading to negative thoughts and feelings.

This negativity causes diminished functionality of the cells and organs and, therefore, leads to reduced productivity. This is explained by the disruption in the flow of life force that happens when the negativity attaches itself to the energy field.

Again, this is what is believed to cause illnesses. To reverse the negative energy, cosmic energy must flow through the affected parts and charge them positively. This causes the body to strengthen as the energy flows more healthily and naturally.

How Do I Get More Cosmic Energy?

Cosmic energy never stops flowing no matter what. It also never gets depleted. Cosmic energy is vital for a person’s spiritual and physical well-being. It is also considered to be the fuel for life.

As we mentioned earlier, cosmic energy is available to us in abundant supply. It is up to us to tap into it if we’re on a path of healing or spiritual development. There are different ways in which a person can get his cosmic energy activation. 

The easiest way to build a relationship with the cosmos is by limiting the negativity level in one’s life. You can do this by harmonizing your breathing through techniques such as meditation and yoga. Let us have a deeper look at the two main ways of receiving cosmic energy:

1. Meditation

As you meditate, your consciousness transcends your body and mind and lets cosmic energy flow into your being. Meditating ensures that the cosmic energy in our body is in harmony with universal cosmic energy.

Meditation is not just about sitting still, remaining quiet, and relaxing the mind. There more to it than that- as we meditate, cosmic energy flows through our entire body, mind, spirit, and soul. It helps us be open to the cosmos’ insights and gain the clarity that enriches our lives.

Honestly, there is no set way to go about it. All you need to do is make sure that you at least meditate daily. There’s no significant difference between cosmic energy meditation and other types of meditation. If you’re unsure of how you are supposed to go about it, here are some tips that will help you to meditate:

  • Find a quiet spot where there’s no disturbance.
  • Sit in an upright position and relax.
  • Place your hands on your laps.
  • Close your eyes so that you can focus better
  • Take a deep, slow breath.
  • Release all thoughts that come to you
  • Focus on your breath, and continue breathing until your breaths are slower and shallower. It should be as natural as possible.
  • As you become more aware of your breath, allow your third eye to open, and the energies of cosmic consciousness will be available to you.
  • Continue for about 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Once you begin taping into the spiritual energy around you, you will feel like all the cells in your body are vibrating.

If your mind wanders, don’t worry. Just try to return to focusing on your breathing slowly. Your body will go back into its previous meditative state.

2. Deep sleep

A person may also receive cosmic energy through sleep. However, in today’s world, the average rest we get is not enough to give us the power that effectively replaces what we lose.

Natural deep sleep recharges our cosmic energy today. It happens when, as we are deeply asleep, the mind wanders, and the soul gets opened up to the surrounding energy.

The easiest way to attain deep sleep is through hypnosis. Another way is through deep sleep guided meditation which enables your body to get to an intense resting phase.

Activating the 7 Chakras

Hindus believe that within each individual, you will find cosmic energy in their perineum. This energy is usually in a dormant form and needs to be awakened to make us feel alive.

There are specific points within our bodies from which energy circulates. These points are called chakras and spin in different directions. The human body has seven chakras aligned centrally in a vertical line, close to the spine. If these points are not balanced or blocked, a person’s spiritual development and mental health are affected.

Keeping our chakras clean allows for a quick and free flow of cosmic energy. The chakra energies are connected to earth grid chakras, the spiritual ascending and descending points of the charge/recharge, and the cosmos’ on/off perpetual motions.

Chakras are activated by the elements of the energies of magnetic principles in particular chakra areas. 

To find the frequency that activates the chakras, you need to chant in different tonalities. The lower vowel sounds work best for the lower chakras- increase the tonality until the higher frequencies are achieved.

The seven centers of energy in our bodies are:

1. The root Chakra

Different Ways to Rekindle Your Relationship With The Cosmos

We are all connected to the “way” of the cosmos. It means that we can easily connect to the flow of the cosmic energy that surrounds us. We can invite this energy into our lives and bathe in its abundance through practices such as yoga, meditation, acupuncture, and so forth. Here’s a list of some of how you can open up your life to cosmic energy:

1. Assess the level of negativity around and within you

Sometimes we might have so much negativity around us and not even notice it. Negativity will always attract the wrong situations and the wrong people in our lives. To find out if there’s too much negativity around you, you need to have a look around you. How do you do this?

  • Are you always complaining about what is not right in the world? It includes things that you cannot change, such as the weather or traffic.
  • Do you believe that you have no control over most of the things around you?
  • Do you always find fault in everything and find someone/ something to blame for it?
  • Do you always see yourself as the victim?
  • Are you always criticizing?
  • If a positive thing happens in your life, are you grateful for it?
  • Do you always feel as though things are just happening to you?
  • Do you always find yourself attracted to drama and disaster?

If you’re overly negative, you will most likely not see it. It will take a lot of courage to be honest with yourself. Try to give thanks for all that is happening around you, both the good and the bad. This tends to invite more positive energy into your life.

2. Limit negative self-talk that criticizes and doubts

Sometimes we are too hard on ourselves and tend to struggle with negative thoughts, which can be quite harmful. When we are judgmental of the self, it fills our wind with misguidance and doubt.

Always control your thinking, calm, and rebalance your thoughts to reaffirm your bond with the cosmos. Tell yourself good things like “I deserve happiness” and “I am a nice person.” Unless you limit the negative self-talk, you will always be disengaged from the flow of cosmic energy.

3. Use an affirmation to free yourself from negativity

Motivate yourself whenever you feel that you need it. Do this daily to keep the negative energy at bay. You can say the motivational words out loud or write them down.

Always remind yourself that you are free to be you and what other people think about you is their problem, not yours.

Remember that life won’t always be smooth, so you should expect to have some down days; you will still have many reasons to be grateful for during these times.

Try to look at every situation in a positive way. When you change the way you look at things differently, even the things you look at will change.

4. Release all restrictions of the body, mind, spirit, and soul

It is effortless for us to feel stuck when things around us are not going to expect them. Energies influence some of the things that happen around us from a higher dimension. 

It means that we have no control over them. However, when we connect to the greater cosmos, we will experience a transformation that will release any restriction in the body, mind, spirit, and soul.

Exercise can also help lower stress, which allows us to realize the true consciousness beyond what happens in the physical world.

When our bodies increase their ability to assimilate cosmic energy, we experience moments of utter fulfillment, which cannot be explained.

5. Cleanse your external space

For you to create a connection with the cosmic energy, you need to focus. It is almost impossible to concentrate in a loud and dirty environment—disorganized external space leaks of negative energy.

Find time to de-clutter your space and get rid of anything that you don’t need to create more space for a more balanced and save you.

If you are in no position to rearrange your home, feel free to venture outside and reconnect with nature. Getting out allows you to become one with nature, in a place of stillness. It makes it so easy for you to open up to the natural flow of the universe.

What Are The Benefits of Cosmic Energy?

There are numerous benefits associated with cosmic energy. The benefits are both physical and spiritual. Here are some of them:

  • People tend to feel less stressed and relief from anxiety
  • Generally, you feel much more focused
  • More energy and increased vitality
  • Relaxation
  • Life seems more evident, and the purpose is more apparent
  • Better concentration and performance
  • Alleviation of pain and physical ailments

What Are Cosmic Forces?

The cosmic force is the energy that binds everything. It comes from all things that have ever lived- the living power. This aspect of cosmic force comprises potent magic and mighty beings.

The most fundamental cosmic forces in existence come in twos, and sometimes one cannot exist without the other. Some examples are light and shadow, life and death, order and disorder, and the elements (fire, air, earth, water).

What is The Meaning of Cosmic Power?

The term cosmic power is generally used to denote a higher level of spiritual awareness and consciousness. The understanding that goes beyond the perceivable world is commonly associated with an experience of “knowing God.” When the human mind is elevated to a cosmic power level, it enters a place of oneness with the universe.

If you want to attain cosmic power, it is required to let go of the superficial ego. Cosmic power is extreme. It plays a massive role in synchronizing cosmic energy with all living things in the universe. Without this incredible energy that helps us connect to the universe, we would not exist.

Short explanation about Feng Shui 

Scientifically, energy and mass are one and the same. They are two different instances of each other. Humans know how to transform mass into energy and still do not know how to turn energy into mass. But mathematically, the ability exists. From a physical aspect, it will probably happen one day when adequate technology becomes available. But why energy is important in order to know what is Feng Shui?
