Feng Shui for Love and Romance
Background of Feng Shui. Did you know that Feng Shui was classified information in ancient China? The Imperial Court rulers in Ancient China wanted Feng Shui information about how the seasons, floods and drought, affected people and crops. They also wanted to know about feast or famine and quality of life issues. This information was key to understanding how our environment affects neighbors, relationships, and a city.
Feng Shui is 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 databank on how people responded to the ever-changing environment. This also included furniture. Have you noticed that Asian furniture has rounded corners? A balanced environment was and is important.
Simple Feng Shui principles change your environment and affect relationships.
Balance with Feng Shui and its principals of art and science are 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.
Love is like growing a garden. By clearing the rocks and putting in good topsoil, 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 this information to help you. Put your best symbols forward.
Questions to ask yourself:
A step you can take is to drive up to your home, stop in the driveway a moment, and take a good look. Ask yourself these questions 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 about love and relationships:
- 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 and out.
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 nightlight 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 a 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.
A 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 B.
