When people talk about Feng Shui, the subject of yin and yang also comes into play—it’s all about trying to achieve balance in order to have good fortune. It is said that the human world attracts yang but ghosts and spirits prefer yin which is prevalent during the Ghost Month.
How do you know if your house has too much yin energy? A yin-dominant household is usually dark, messy and there is a lack of free-flowing air, making it more likely to attract ghosts and spirits. To avoid yin spirit formation in your home all year round, here are some things you can do:
Keep your house clean and free from clutter.
Have you ever checked your closet and notice that some pieces don't fit anymore? How about your files? When was the last time you sorted them? Finding time to organize your personal items can be tough but it is important that you accomplish these tasks before the start of the Ghost Month.
Open the windows to let fresh air and sunlight in.
It's safe to say that every homeowner, regardless of style preference, aspires to have a sunny and well-ventilated home—after all, a space bathed in natural light has this indescribable appeal. Opening windows and opting for sheer white curtains can help keep the energy flowing all throught the space, too.
Install more lights to brighten up dark corners.
If your home has a few nooks and crannies that sunshine can’t reach, it’s important to open up these spaces with light to ward off negative energies. Consider lamps or even mood lighting to give your home a design boost in the process.
