Invite love into your home the Feng Shiu way this Valentine’s Day
It’s another year in the lunar calendar. And with it being Valentine’s Day, it's an ideal time to attract positive energy into your love life. Experience the love as you Feng Shui your way to Valentine's Day
The Chinese believe that your environment can influence different aspects of your life, such as career, family, and love.
In Singapore, the art of Feng Shui is widely practiced. In fact, even those with no Chinese blood find themselves dabbling in this ancient art. Here are Feng Shui ways to attract positive energies to your love life this Valentine’s Day:
According Huffington Post, hanging mirrors diagonally and opposite each other in the hallway just outside the bedroom door will lessen negative energies that may affect your love life.
A crystal orb hung inside the door of your bedroom will help enhance all relationships, including relationships with your kids, but most especially between you and your spouse.
According to Inhabitat, an online publication, "Colours play an important role in feng shui and in how we perceive the world around us."
Inhabitat explains that colours that pertain to romance are bright, such as pink, red, and peach. Pink symbolises relationships and love, red is for passion and sensuality, and peach is for making you more attractive to others.
The soft light from candles always seem to make one feel more romantic. Candles evoke a feeling of relaxation and coziness, closeness, and intimacy. We often create the mood with candlelit dinners, and candle-lit bedrooms.
In Feng Shui, a pair of pink candles in the back, right-hand corner of the room can reignite your marriage or relationship. Lighting the candles, Huffington Post added, ensures a lasting marriage.
Bedroom furniture is another critical aspect in "Feng Shui-ing" your way to Valentine's Day and to a lasting marriage.
According to Inhabitat, your bed's headboard should be securely attached to the bed and backed against a wall to ensure unity and strength in the relationship.
Create a place for two people in your bedroom, making sure that your spouse has his or her space in your love nest. Things, when possible, should come in pairs--two bedside tables, two bedside lamps, or two sets of bedroom slippers.
Ylang-ylang essential oil, which is luckily readily available in the Singapore, releases one’s animal instincts. Scenting your room with ylang-ylang is great in awakening passion. As an added bonus, your room will also smell lovely!
Pictures and other visual images that denote love, such as tabletop sculptures of a woman and man in a passionate embrace, should be strategically placed at the foot of the bed and across the bedroom door.
Because of the long history of feng shui in Singapore, a host of feng shui masters can be found with just a quick Google search.
