Creating a Home Environment that Welcomes and Supports Love
Along with Money and Career, Love is right at the top of the list for most of my clients when they mention the area of their life that they’d most like to improve. Feng shui can’t solve all our problems, but it can help with the energy needed to bring more joy and happiness into our lives. Whether you are already in love, need to perk up your current relationship, or are still looking for that special someone, feng shui can help you create an environment that will support the energy of love and romance. Below I’ve given you ten tips on how to get your home “in the mood” for love!

This doesn’t mean your home has to look like it came right out of a magazine. It just means adding a few key things like throw rugs, plush bath towels, a comfortable piece of furniture, a piece of attractive artwork and adding a healthy plant or two. These simple things go a long way to not only make your home or apartment feel more nurturing to you, but to your potential sweetheart too.
3. Evaluate your Artwork
I worked with a single woman who had a huge, old-fashioned comic book style photo in her living room with a woman sitting by the phone that said, “He never calls, he never writes”. When I asked her about it she told me that Continue reading
