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 more 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 meridian point in your home.
Find the location inside your house where the Southwest meridian point intersects the
outer 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 that stimulates the energy of the Southwest is earth (rock, stone, tile, etc.).You can use regular stones and minerals, items made from earth like ceramic, pottery, cement, quartz, granite, etc., or statuary and figurines made of earth. Remember that in feng shui, and especially on the partnership meridian, 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 feels romantic. Ideally have pieces that display images of pairs of things (two people, two cats, two birds, etc.). It’s a good idea to maintain objects and artwork in pairs rather than single items or images of single things. Items should be arranged in pairs throughout the house and not just in the southwest. Avoid putting items in threes as the subliminal message is that there should be three people in the relationship instead of two; something most people definitely don’t want in a relationship! When things are grouped in pairs it reminds the subconscious that “two’ is a number that we’d like to manifest in our romantic life instead of the lonely number one.
3. Use romantic fabrics. For more romance, add romantic fabrics to your space. Silk, velvet, satin, and other luxurious textiles evoke sensuality. Make sure bedding is soft and cozy. Beautiful drapes that touch the floor are a great way to add the feeling of romance to any room.
4. Dim the lights. Candles and low lighting sets the stage for a romantic mood. In fact candlelight is the most flattering light to be seen in. Put lights on dimmers to be able to control the amount of lighting in a space when love is in the air! Battery-operated candles are a safe alternative to traditional ones.
