Feng shui remedies are available to help counter any problems that may be caused by the structure of a home or the placement of furniture within it. Good feng shui can be achieved when the structure and furniture placement are conducive to free up the flow of 'qi' or energy within the home. Without built from scratch with the art of placement in mind, most homes are not optimized to be beneficial for you. That is why it is necessary for you to learn about how and where to use cures through your home.
Colors can be very effective remedies and they can easily be used to treat problem areas. The balance of a room or a home may be off due to missing elements. Since colors are used to represent elements, the application of the color associated with the missing element may be used as a cure. This can be done in the form of simply adding decorative objects in the specified color or you can even paint entire walls depending on how important the element is to that part of the room.
Furniture placement is also a major cause of problems in the home. There are several guidelines on how furniture should be placed in each room of the house. If your furniture is not placed in a way that is beneficial towards you, you can easily change things around by rearranging the furniture. The most important piece of furniture in each room should be in a command position and all the other pieces can be placed around it. Sometimes however, the structure of the room or the entire home makes it impossible to make changes by simply rearranging furniture. If this is the case, special tools can be used as a cure.
Tools that are specifically used to cure bad feng shui include wind chimes, crystal balls and water fountains. Mirrors are also very effective, so are candles and live plants. Each of these tools represent one of the five elements and can be used through the home in areas that are meant for that element. Some are used for protection, others to shift the flow of 'qi', no matter what the purpose is, these tools can be quite powerful if used correctly.
