The Feng Shui philosophy believes that we should throw away all objects that have been broken as they contribute negative energy or block the positive ones. Although you can try to replace and repair them, according to this philosophy the best we can do is throw them out and start over. Sometimes it can be complicated, but if you have some decorative object that has split into two then throw it away immediatly. 

2. Prevent collecting many objects

Many of us have the hobby of accumulating or collecting everything. It is because we are sorry or guilty to get rid of those items. These same objects that we store or collect can block the emotional and spiritual energy of our home. This is why when we see a well-organized house, with everything in its place, we feel calm and confident. It inevitably happens to you as well so get to work and clean out the clutter.

If you move to a new apartment which was inhabited earlier than the philosophy of Feng Shui recommends that you put a pinch of salt in each corner of every room. This culinary ingredient will help absorb the bad energy of the previous residents. After 48 hours of putting the salt, you just have to remove it from the corners and throw it away.

5. Decorate with mirrors

If you do not have mirrors in your house, then do not hesitate to bet on then even for a moment. The reason for this is that they attract positive vibes and will help to clear your mind. They are also excellent allies in your decoration as they reflect light and make the space look larger.
