Some people have a natural sense of decorating. They seem to instinctively know what to put where, and how to arrange things, “just so” in order to make a room look and feel wonderful. Other people need more help (thank goodness, or I’d be out of a job!) Below you’ll find some basic furnishing tips for three key rooms to help you choose and place furniture for each room to help make the space function, feel, and look its best. Continue reading
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!
1. Out with the Old
I often work with clients who hold on to keepsakes, belongings, and mementos from the past. The problem with keeping items that either belonged to or remind you of a former flame is that physical items hold energy, and the more emotion associated with the item, the more energy that item holds. When you hold onto items from the past, it can keep you stuck in the past and prevent you from embracing the joy of the future. Physically letting go of items that remind you of former loves can be a very empowering first step towards welcoming in a new, happier and healthier relationship.
2. Are you Loving YOU?
Whether you want to admit it or not, your surroundings speak volumes about not only your interests and passions, but also about how you feel about youself. I’ve been inside countless homes, condos, and apartments over the years and I can’t begin to list how many single people I have worked with whose spaces feel cold, unfinished, and uncomfortable. The problem with this is that a home like this creates the impression (rightly or wrongly) of someone who doesn’t nurture or value themselves, and who would in turn, have difficulty nurturing and caring for others. 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
Feng Shui is a wonderful tool for freeing up the energy in your life so things will flow more smoothly. While it (unfortunately) can’t solve all romantic woes, it can help create a most positive environment for love to grow. Whether you are single and looking for a relationship or already involved with someone, Feng Shui can help you increase the positive flow of energy for love and romance. Below are ten tips to get you started.
1. Locate the Southwest portion of your home. Find the location where the Southwest meridian point intersects the wall of your home. If you don’t know how to do this, you’ll find easy-to-follow directions in my book, Feng Shui that Makes Sense. This is your “Love and Romance” location. The element for the Southwest is earth (rock, stone, tile, etc.). One of the easiest ways to bring stone into this area is by adding a pair of Rose Quartz hearts in the Southwest area. The rose quartz hearts are available for sale HERE. You can also use regular stones, items made from earth like ceramic, pottery, cement, quartz, granite, etc. Statuary and figurines made of earth are nice too. Remember that in feng shui, and especially in the romance section, we like to have things grouped in “pairs” so be sure to have two items made of earth in this area instead of one.
2. Choose artwork carefully. In order to enhance romance, choose artwork that Continue reading
