Feng Shui shapes are often the easiest Feng Shui enhancement to manipulate when working with an area in the Bagua. Learn more from Kathryn Wilking
The three most common shapes:
SQUARES: If the life area you choose to enhance needs solid grounding, then squares would be the shape. You can choose one item, or you could arrange several items into a square shape. In addition, you can arrange several ’square-type’ pictures into one larger square shape. It is rather easy to find squares and rectangles as they are rather common in a home: cupboards, windows, appliances picture frames, etc.
TRIANGLES: Triangles are trickier; they bring attention and drama into a space. Many people default in this area and just use the colour red. (A fire makes a red flame = triangle.) To attract more intensity in your space, use regular candles, a fireplace, or lights to represent actual fire. Arranging three vases in a triangle shape or planting three plants in a triangle will also form a sharp shape. Many birds have a pointed crest and many trees and bushes have sharp leaves. See what images you can find in your home to make triangles.
CIRCLES: Circles or ovals can open creativity. They can be found in picture frames and mirrors, plant pots, flower petals and glassware. Curves, archways and circles can be found in paintings or images printed on fabrics or upholstery. Soften a sharp stairwell landing with smaller items shaped into a curve. Outside, you can plant bulbs or plants in curved or circular patterns.
If your room feels a bit off-balance, try using a variety of textures and shapes in the same space. The variety of shapes can give you well-rounded energy and support for many areas in your life!
Get creative with what you already own; and get these shapes working for you!
