Feng Shui and Romance - Using the Ancient Art to Enhance Your Romantic SpaceWritten by Heidi Richards, Chief Goddess
“If your love life needs a quick boost, you can use art of placement to produce romantic results you desire.” Heidi Richards
Feng Shui (pronounced fung shway) is ancient Asian practice of object arrangement and space planning designed to bring balance, harmony and well-being to your environment. Its purpose is to enhance prosperity, creative, health and romance. Feng Shui fortifies a home with positive energy known as chi. The attainment of positive chi is both an art and a blessing to those who manifest that chi. The word “feng” means wind and “shui” means water, each one associated with a good harvest and ultimate good health or good fortune.
If your love life needs a quick boost, you can use art of placement to produce romantic results you desire. Relationships need proper environment to grow. They need balance of five elements, too much or too little will find romance wither. Here are some Feng Shui tips to enhance your romantic space:
The first thing you must do is remove clutter out of your romance area (generally this is bedroom). That means you must remove trash, dirty ashtrays, dead plants and nothing should be stored under bed. Dust and cobwebs on fans, walls, light fixtures and ceilings should be cleaned away. Enhance your space with romance colors, such as shades of pinks, reds and whites. Guys, this does not mean it has to be feminine. You can use maroon, grayish tones of pinks and whites to achieve same results. The key is to not use any one color so much that it overpowers others. Other good colors include browns, beiges, lavenders, yellows and deeper shades of those are appropriate. If you keep flowers in room (an excellent way to attract romance into your life), make sure they are always fresh. At first sign of wilting, toss them out. Silk flowers are an okay alternative, provided they are free of dust. Absolutely no dried flowers as they signify death. Also, make sure roses are de-thorned. Nothing prickly such as cactus, unless your goal is to break-up. In Feng Shui a Relationship Alter positively stimulates a relationship. Designate a special place in your romance area in which to put items that will encourage a healthy, loving relationship. Things to include in your relationship altar can include a heart shaped pink crystal quartz, a pair of candles, mandarin ducks.
