Familiarize yourself with common feng shui "cures." Once you begin looking at your home from a feng shui point of view, you come to see that the principles have a lot to do with symbolism: Sharp corners suggest danger, dying plants are a sign of bad health and so on. What is your home telling you? Once you get the feeling for this, you can play around with applying your own feng shui cures. Common cures that can be helpful in many situations include mirrors, octagonal shapes, crystals (especially hung from the ceiling), fresh green plants and water (running water for energy, deep, still water for contemplation).
