Love, Romance & Relationships
Background about Feng Shui:
The Imperial Court rulers in Ancient China wanted Feng Shui information about how the seasons, floods and drought, affected people and crops. They also want to know about feast or famine and quality of life issues.This information was key in understanding how our environment affects not only you, but neighbors and our city.
Feng Shui – a cross between an art and a science.
The Ancient Chinese also used Feng Shui as a philosophy dating back more than 5000 years ago. It started as a way to view how the Universe works. They observed how nature moved and directed the elements, cycles, rhythms of rivers, clouds, and how this energy created chaos or flowed in harmony.
The five elements of Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal make up the guidelines of Feng Shui.
In observing these changes in nature they gathered a great data bank on how people responded to the every changing environment. This also included furniture. Have you noticed that Asia furniture has rounded corners? A balanced environment was and is important.
Balance is the one of the most import aspects of love and relationships.
The concepts of Feng Shui are still valid today as they were in ancient times perhaps more so with our fast-paced lifestyle and how it affects our relationships.
Feng Shui is a system of understanding the conscious and unconscious symbols surrounding you and your identifications with them.
Simple Feng Shui principles change your environment and affects relationships.
Love is like growing a garden. By clearing the rocks and putting in a good top soil, you give the plant better conditions in which to thrive. The same goes for relationships. Balance is vital for oneself, career, health, friends, love and relationships.
Remember you are good and wonderful just as you are and we want others to know this as well. The most important relationship is with yourself. Invest a little time to discover what you are showing to the world in your home. Is this view of your home an accurate reflection of you? If not, use the information to help you. Put your best symbols forward.
Another step you can take is to drive up to your home, stop in the driveway a moment, and take a good look. Questions to ask yourself from the first look at your home:
- What is the first thing you see?
- Do you like what you see?
- If so, what is it? The color, the plants, style of the grass?
- Take a mental note of what you see, then go inside and get a pen and paper to write down what you see.
Next walk to the front entrance of your home or condo, even if you are only renting a room. Stand back at the front entrance and really look.
- What do you see? Does it feel balanced?
- What do you hear? Are these pleasant sounds or not?
Now look at the interior of your home. Is it cluttered or not? Clutter often is a sign of hanging on to the past. The past was known and comfortable. It may not have been healthy, but known and you were conditioned to it.
Other questions to consider:
- Do you think you need a relationship because people say you need one or do you really want one?
- Do you have time and space to share with another person?
Maybe you are happy being alone. (If not call me.) No seriously, clean the clutter from the front of the house and put some living plants there.
If you are happy being single, your home will reflect this. You can put one beautiful chair in the living room, and push the bed against the wall so it is easy for one to get in an out of.
If the house is dark, add some lighting. As you enter the front door it should be appealing, or is it too dark or with many shadows? Leave a small night light on or timed lights while you are away.
Should you enter from the garage the same guidelines apply. What room do you enter from the garage? As you look around, is there one candle, three or five statues? Relationships are about two, three is a crowd in a relationship and it causes problems.
The Relationship area is the far right corner of your living space. The element to look at in this area is the earth, have a crystal or some natural element here. The colors to put here are pink, white, and red. A Feng Shui adjustment does not need to be seen to be effective.
Examine this relationship space carefully. Have at least two of something: two plants, two candle holders, and lamps should be the same. If possible, put pictures of happy couple, even it if is in a drawer.
Take time to use the principles of balance and Feng Shui and see how it influences your Love, Romance, and Relationships.

Testimonial: I was living in the desert where the Winters are wonderful, but the heat sometimes sucked the energy out of me. Darielle came in and did a Feng Shui adjustment with the furniture and accessories we already had. It was amazing how I could feel the energy flow around the room after she moved things around. It even felt cooler and at the same time a relaxing atmosphere. Feng Shui works and Darielle has a way of creating a new home environment quickly and energetically. Kathy
