Feng Shui Relationships / Love / Marriage
By Jessie Kim
Based upon the principles of Feng Shui, when improvements are made to the Relationships & Love corner of your surroundings in combination with improvements made to the complementing areas, you can find love that you may have never previously known or can rekindle the love that you once had.
Heck, if all you’re looking for is some (ahem) fun, this is the area for you to pay some attention.
Best Colors: Pink, Red, and White
According to Feng Shui, in addition to the far-right corner of your overall floor plan or a room, your bedroom is always considered to be a Relationship area for those in that bedroom.
Moreover, your bedroom should be a place for relaxation and romance – a place for calm energy.
While much of what I talk about here will be specific to your bedroom, you should also put a similar amount of care into the far-right corner of your Bagua.
I will get to the things that you should have in your bedroom and relationship corner, but first we need to make some space.
These are few of the things that you need to avoid in your bedroom and relationship corner:
Remove or cover all mirrors in your bedroom, as mirrors reflect all the negative energy back to you while you sleep.
A mirror is always reflecting things, so in Feng Shui it’s considered to be an active item, which is not recommended for a bedroom.
If you do have mirrors in your room, it is likely that your mind is always active, preventing you from getting a good night of rest.
No Plants or Fountains
For similar reasons, water fountains, fresh flowers, or plants are not recommended for the bedroom, either.
Plants emit yang (active) energy that can disturb sleep while yin (calm) energy is what is needed.
No Family Pictures
Avoid family pictures in your bedroom, as your bedroom should be a very private place.
It is the place for you and your partner, so try to minimize the pictures of your children, friends and in-laws.
Looking at those pictures while in bed does not let your mind wander away, relax, and fully enjoy your partner.
If you have religious pictures and items in your bedroom, they should be placed so that they are not directed at your bed.
No Work or Fitness
Work and love just don’t mix. You should never keep your work desk or computer in your bedroom, even if you feel like you don’t have room elsewhere.
Once again, the bedroom is for rest and relaxation – yin energy. Your office should have the yang energy.
Home offices in the bedroom bring too much active energy into what should be a very passive room.
If there is no other place to have a home office but in your bedroom, then make sure that you can put the computer and all the work stuff away before going to bed so you don’t see it from your bed.
The same goes for any exercise equipment as well.
And don’t just tuck it under your bed… that active energy will just provide you with an active mind at night.
No Sad, Lonely, or Cold Imagery
Avoid images, artwork, or other items that evoke a sadness or loneliness.
For example, don’t have pictures of an ex, storms, pictures of dead flowers, a desolate winter landscape, a lonely person, etc.
Moreover, don’t have anything cold in your bedroom or relationship corner, either figuratively or literally. For example, avoid freezers, air conditioning units, ice coolers, refrigerators, etc.
If there is no avoiding having a refrigerator or other cold unit in these spots, warm it up with red rugs, pictures of fire burning, or pictures of romantic couples plastered all over them.
No Single Items or Games
In Relationship Feng Shui, it is absolutely critical not to have single items.
Examples of things to avoid would be a single lamp or candle on your bedside tables or in relationship corner.
Even if you are single, don’t just have one towel hanging in the bathroom.
Have everything in pairs.
Furthermore, if you want to avoid games and drama in your love life, avoid any kind of games, such as video games or board games, in this area.
If you want to find true love, start with a good cleaning of your Relationship area.
Yes, a good old fashioned cleaning is great for finding love in Feng Shui.
Don’t forget to remove all the clutter.
To better focus on finding true love, get rid of everything from prior relationships, especially unhappy ones.
You don’t want to start a new relationship with old, emotional baggage.
Even if you are over that past relationship, don’t hold on to the objects that represent that relationship. Just keep the good memories and let everything else go.
Now that we’ve cleared some space, let’s talk about good things for your bedroom or relationship corner.
Colors of Love
Pink is the color of romance in life, art, and Feng Shui.
You can use light pink, hot pink, or any kind of pink.
You can have pink heart shapes, wall paint, carpet, accent pieces, etc.
I am not saying you have to make your room look like a giant bottle of Pepto Bismol exploded (which I did and it worked, but you don’t have to if pink isn’t your color).
White and red are also excellent relationship colors.
You can also have love symbols such as cupids, hearts, lovebirds, pictures of loving couples and especially things in pairs.
Two pink candles, two wine glasses, two pillows, two sitting chairs, two tickets to Hawaii, etc.
Think of all the romantic things and places you want to do and go with your true love.
Positive Environment / No Symbols of Loneliness
In closing, and as with any area of your home that you want to improve, create an energy in your surroundings that will be a positive influence on you to achieve what you are looking for.
The pairs concept is really important to every area in your home if you want to spend your life with someone special.
Lastly, on my consultations, I have noticed that the sad and lonely hearts are those who have pictures of a single and lonely woman on their wall or some other symbol of loneliness.
The environment you create for yourself will be the environment in which you live, both in the home and out.
May you find or reignite the most special kind of love that you can imagine.
Unique Situations or Dangerous Items
Do you have a unique situation at your home or office? Perhaps you are missing this entire section from your floor plan or it inherently has some sort of dangerous item, such as a bathroom, fireplace, or garage?
