After my post on using feng shui to attract wealth, a reader asked me if we can use feng shui for improving relationships. The answer is yes. Feng shui and love are very compatible!
Practical feng shui for love
If someone walked into your home and bedroom, would it be obvious that the place was set up for a couple? Or does your home scream “bachelor pad” at every turn? If you already have a partner, check that your home is conducive for both of you.
- Replace your single bed with a double bed
- Both sides of the bed should be as equal as possible, eg pillows and reading lamps on both sides
- The bed should be accessible from both sides
- Ditch fluorescent lights for soft yellow bulbs
- Use candles or essential oils, even when you’re sleeping alone, to create an atmosphere of romance
- Make space for a second car in the garage or outside the house
- Have a spare set of house keys readily available
- Arrange chairs in pairs at right angles so you can see the person’s profile, but not head-on in a confrontational position
- Furnishings should be soft and inviting, eg love seats or sofas for two to make another person want to be around.
Symbolic feng shui for love
Our thoughts create our reality. If you want a loving relationship with a partner, set up your home to remind you of this, so that your subconscious can get to work creating the actual relationship you are seeking.
- Display items in pairs eg candles and cushions. A pair of mandarin ducks in wood or metal is a good feng shui decoration
- Tables and mirrors should be oval or round as far as possible, avoiding the sharp ‘cutting’ corners or squares or rectangles.
- Avoid images of single figures, sad faces and broken hearts. Choose images of couples and love
Your relationship areas
These practical and symbolic tips should be especially applied to these areas of your bedroom and home. These are the special places when you are alone with your partner, or that you’d like to share with someone special.
