Attracting Love and Partnership with Feng Shui

Love and Partnership Tips from Carole HyderThe partnership gua is the upper right corner of the bagua and it is used to call forth love, a romantic partner, enhance a current relationship or bolster self confidence. IFSG member Carole Hyder tells us about a time when she activated this gua to benefit herself.

Recommendation/cure/advice:
Place an indoor-appropriate wind chime in the Partnership area of the bedroom to “call in” a partner.

Back in 1992 when I was first studying Feng Shui with Professor Thomas Lin Yun, I hung a wind chime in the Partnership area of my condo. I wasn’t calling in a partner as much as counteracting a bathroom and laundry room that was located in that area. I rang it occasionally as it was a sweet, small bell that had a beautiful sound to it. In the meantime, I offered this suggestion to several of my clients as well and, as attended 3 weddings as a result.

It wasn’t until I was moving out of my condo a couple years later, with the man who was to be my husband, that I realized he and I had met 90 days after I had hung my own wind chime. Even though it wasn’t my main focus, it worked anyway. I still have the bell and the man is still the love of my life. Now when I ring it, I ring it with gratitude.

Feng Shui for the Way You Love

Feng shui design serves the mind, body and soul by increasing energy in appropriate spaces – like offices, fitness areas, and social areas of the home. Bedroom feng shui, by contrast, incorporates energy in the space differently. Read more from Feng Shui Professional, Samantha Shields.

Unfortunately, since this area is often kept behind closed doors unseen by visitors, it tends to be the most forgotten and neglected room of the home.

Setting the Scene

Bedroom feng shui creates an enticing ambience that offers benefits such as:

  • Promoting restful sleep
  • Increasing feelings of security
  • Improving focus and concentration
  • Supporting recovery from heartbreak or sorrow
  • Encouraging the development of a new relationship
  • Stimulating intimacy and romantic connection
  • Providing a personal sanctuary
  • Revitalizing your energy daily
  • Eliciting positive emotions
  • Inspiring your creativity
  • Rest and Rejuvenation

Samantha Shields, Feng Shui Love, Bedroom Feng ShuiBedroom Feng Shui design pays special attention to our natural need for rest, rejuvenation and deep sleep.

Sleep is a basic physical requirement necessary for self-preservation, giving us the strength and clarity we need to survive, thrive and flourish each day.

Feng shui takes into account the complex nature of our human needs – fulfilling our most basic requirements and supporting our aspirations for future achievements. In the bedroom, feng shui design helps us gently disengage from our daily activities and stresses. It allows you to peacefully slip into the sanctuary of your bedroom to bring back balance to your body and mind. Bedroom Feng Shui also encourages you to create habits of self-care to nourish your body and soul.When you feel well rested and refreshed, you are more able to share yourself enthusiastically with your partner and the world.

Rekindle Your Relationship

If you feel your current relationship has lost its “spark,” bedroom feng shui design can help you create an intimate space where you can rekindle your romantic connection. The loving relationship that is supported in the bedroom is positively affected by furniture arrangement, color, romantic enhancements, sensual comforts and personal mementos.

Treat your bedroom as a sanctuary where positive communication is encouraged and yourSamantha Shields, Feng Shui Love, Bedroom Feng Shui physical and emotional health are nourished each day.

Design for New Love

Feng shui wisdom teaches us to open our hearts and clear our minds to make room for new opportunities. If you are single and looking for a partner, allow your bedroom design to reflect an openness and readiness for a thriving relationship. Prepare for love by creating a space designed for two instead of one.

Healing a Broken Heart

If you have experienced a breakup or other personal loss, bedroom feng shui adjustments provide supportive healing energy as well as inspiration to move forward and invite happiness.

Feng Shui for Love

Whether you are in a committed relationship or still searching for The One,” Feng Shui paves the way for more harmonious relationships. Feng Shui helps you recognize how your space reflects your life and encourages you to create a new relationship with your space. Find out more details and ideas from Kim Julen, Finding Your Fiji.

  

Feng Shui for Love by Kim Julen

In the relationship arena, Feng Shui can help:

  • Bring balance, equality and harmony
  • Get the sparks flying again
  • Attract your soul mate
  • Reduce/eliminate arguments
  • Improve relationships with family, friends and coworkers
  • Deepen your relationship with yourself or creator

There are two main areas in your home we look at to improve relationships. One area is the partnership corner. (If you’re new to Feng Shui, click here to read my blog on Feng Shui’s mental map, the Bagua, to learn how your space reflects your life.) The other area is your bedroom, no matter where it’s located in your home. In this article, I’m focusing primarily on your bedroom. Ideally, this should be your favorite room in the house, an oasis that is both romantic and peaceful.

Let’s first talk about the things to AVOID in your bedroom:

  1. Clutter: As in every area of your home or office, clutter represents stuck energy. It’s also distracting. So, if you’re trying to get your partner in the right mood, removing clutter from the bedroom will help them feel less overwhelmed and more relaxed.
  2. Dirt: This can represent staleness in your relationship. To keep your Partnership fresh and new feeling, keep your bedroom dusted and clean. You will sleep better too!
  3. Dead Things: One client I worked with had pictures of dead relatives decorating a corner of her bedroom! Sometimes we place things in spaces without really think about the metaphorical message we are sending. You want things that are alive and thriving in your bedroom and Partnership area of your home. Remove any dried flowers from your bedroom (and home) as well.
  4. Pictures of your kids and other people: Even if the relatives are living, we do not want them invading our bedroom, right? And kids certainly are important in our life, but again, we do not need them coming between us and our partner. The bedroom is your personal partnership space.
  5. Toys and stuffed animals: We want to be an adult in our relationships so childish things do not belong in the bedroom. If they are keepsakes or mementos that you love, they can be placed in another area of the home – perhaps in the Creativity and Children area.

Next, let’s talk about the things you DO WANT in your bedroom. What can you do to get the love lava flowing again or to attract your soul mate?

  1. Two equal size/weight night stands: This symbolizes equality in the relationship and is particularly important if you currently do not have a partner. What does it say if one partner has a large dresser on their side and the other a small nightstand? Or if one partner has no nightstand at all? Will they have much say in the relationship? Matching lamps will bring additional balance and harmony to your love connection.
  2. Art symbolizing what you want in your relationship: Look at the art on your bedroom walls. Is it romantic? Or do you have pictures of a frozen lake? Is it peaceful and copacetic or showing conflict? Are there single people or animals depicted in the paintings? That single cowboy picture not only shows a desert, but the guy is alone, right? That leads me to the next tip…
  3. Pairs of things: Pairs represent partnership and intentionally placing pairs of things in your bedroom will help balance your relationship.
  4. A current picture of the two of you, if you’re in a partnership, should be placed in your bedroom and will help solidify your bond. Sometimes I recommend a wedding picture be placed here too, to help you remember how you felt when you fell in love.
  5. Vibrant, living things: To really promote a healthy sex life, place 9 lush plants in the bedroom. Then, make sure you keep them alive!
  6. Add Pink and Fire: The partnership color is pink and adding a dash of it here or there intentionally will boost your budding or rekindling relationship. Adding the element of fire, which is all about passion, will further heat things up. You can use the color red to represent fire or physical fire (like candles) or triangle shapes. We don’t like fireplaces in bedrooms, because it’s too much energy to allow you to sleep well. However, the Partnership area of your main level is a perfect place for a fireplace.

Making changes in your Partnership area and bedroom with intention means taking time to really think about what you want to cultivate in your relationships.

Your bedroom is a key Feng Shui area. It can affect not only your relationships, but also your sleep, your health, and your mind.

Feng Shui Tips for the Bedroom for Health and Relationship Improvements

Learn how to take your bedroom for the ho-hum to the “Feng Shui wow” with simple tips by Karen Rauch Carter.  So much time is spent in this important room for rest and rejuvenation as well as reconnecting with your partner.  Take the time to incorporate at least one of her suggestions and feel better and sleep better – for your overall health!

Feng Shui Bedroom tips, Karen Rauch CarterOn average, one third of your life is spent in your bedroom. I think it is practically impossible to “waste money” on creating the perfect bedroom as it is your most impacting room of your house! Here are my tips for bedrooms if your love life seems stale or is non-existent, or your health could use some improvement, or you are looking for a new or different outlook on life:

  1. Remove anything that does not support love/passion and health/rest. If your bedroom looks more like an office or multi-purpose room, your environment is working against you. If you want to go the extra mile with feng shui, try to get a good balance of the five elements in there as well.
  2. If you are looking for a major change, then stretch yourself and make major decor changes within the bedroom. In other words, “Don’t buy the same old comfort zone stuff that will get you the same old love and health-life situations!”
  3. Buy a wooden bed if you have the choice. Metal beds can conduct electrical fields which can be a health concern. Avoid having anything plugged-in near your bed, and especially no electrical blankets (even if they are plugged in but not turned on they can be harmful!), heating pads, or massage pads.
  4. Check the lighting level to see if it is not too harsh (yang) or too dim (yin). Listen for distracting sounds and try to alleviate or remove.
  5. Avoid large living plants or water fountains in the bedroom.
  6. Avoid large mirrors in the room. You should not be able to see yourself reflected in any mirror when in your bed.
  7. Avoid sharp metal within the bedroom (knives, axes, swords, guns, scissors, etc.) Sharp metal near you in bed usually results in “being cut” in life – as in surgeries.
  8. Create a headboard for the bed and place it against the most solid wall in the room – cure poison arrows or “bed in line with doorway” lines by hanging a crystal between the bed and the negative item.

Don’t settle for a “6″ Bedroom when you can have a 10!!!!!

Romantic Feng Shui Dining Ideas

Romantic Dining Ideas by Carol Olmstead – planning a romantic dinner for two?  Incorporate Feng Shui into that plan to set the mood and create a wonderful setting

Romantic DiningIf you’re planning romantic dining for two, plan to include some Feng Shui because a few changes can help set the mood and create the perfect romantic setting. Feng Shui principles teach that by making a person feel good about his or her surroundings, we also make that person feel good about being with us.

The ideal table for two is square or round, with no more than two extra chairs. Too many chairs can make you feel like you’re having a party and the guests didn’t show, instead of making you feel romantic. If your table is a long rectangle, remove some of the chairs and set two places at one end of the table. Place a flower arrangement or other decorative object at the other end of the table to fill up the space. A long table feels empty and can put a strain on intimacy and conversation.

Arrange seating in a cozy arrangement to boost love and romance. Place chairs at right angles, and avoid sitting across from your dining partner because this is considered a “confrontational” position. And be sure to seat your guest facing away from the kitchen rather than into it, so any clutter and dirty dishes won’t break the romantic mood. If you have a dimmer switch, lower the lighting to soften the mood.

Decorate your table with the color red, the traditional color of love and romance. Red also represents the Fire Element in Feng Shui, and using it to decorate your table brings passion to the occasion. Choose pairs of red objects rather than single items to symbolize a coupled relationship, such as a pair of red placements, two red crystal hearts, or a red ceramic vase with two flowers. Place all of your pairs side-by-side rather then spacing them far apart on the dining table or anywhere else in the room. Don’t forget to light a pair of candles, since we all look and feel better in candle light.

And make sure you wear something red to activate your own personal Fire Element energy.

Romantic Dining

Feng Shui philosophy believes that “you are what you see.” That means you can make your dinner companion feel welcome by removing any artwork that shows only a single person or images reflecting loneliness. Instead, display art that shows happy, loving couples. And of course remove any objects you received from a past love.

Don’t forget to “ignite” the Love Area of the room where you are dining. This is the upper right hand corner as you are looking into the room from its main entrance. Make this area as romantic as possible by adding things like artwork showing a couple kissing, a bouquet of fragrant flowers, or a beautiful lamp to represent a glowing relationship. Move unromantic objects out of this area, especially the trashcan, desk, children’s schoolwork, or the cat’s litter box. Be sure to remove all clutter from the room. Clutter symbolizes “postponed decisions” and “the inability to move forward,” which is something you certainly don’t want to encourage.

Open your windows before your dinner to let out the old, stale air and bring in the new fresh chi. Even if it’s too cold and you can only keep them open for a few minutes, you will symbolically make room for a fresh romance to enter your life.
