Reading: Feng shui love
love is a necessary fuel that keeps our hearts alive. When we are open to giving and receiving love, we are doing a lot for our emotional and mental well-being. love nurtures us on many levels, and the more we invite it into our lives, the more it reflects back to us.
According to a psychology study published today, we can increase our ability to love and attract love by practicing mindfulness.
Did you know that you can use the wisdom and principles of feng shui to attract love into your life?
here are the tips and tricks you need to know…
before we start… know your bagua map
knowing your bagua map will allow you to maximize the potential of every corner of your home.
on the feng shui bagua map, the southwest area is usually associated with love and romance, and it is this area of the house that you should pay more attention to if you want to increase love in your life.
your bedroom also has its own bagua map. so since this is the most intimate place in the house, make sure to place the bed in the southwest corner.
If your room does not allow it, enrich the space with the appropriate feng shui colors and feng shui decoration that will serve to maximize the love capacity of your space.
the southwest is connected to the earth element, so avoid putting metal, fire, water and wood colors and objects here. Learn more about feng shui elements here.
feng shui love cures & tips
here are the top feng shui cures, tips and tricks to bring more romance and love into your home and life…
This cannot be stressed enough. While feng shui has its rules, it is never immune to the homeowner’s vibration. That said, how you feel about love will be directly reflected in the energy of your home.
Your definition of love and soulmate is likely to be different than everyone else’s, so think about what love means to you, let that feeling guide you to decorate your space accordingly.
Remember, when you’re trying to attract love, the first step in doing so is to open your heart to love by visualizing, daydreaming, and setting the intention.
use red, pink or white
You guessed it right: to attract love, you can use romantic colors like pink, red and also soft white. These colors symbolize passion, love, romance, and closeness.
remember one thing: these are fiery colors, especially bright shades of them, so use them carefully to decorate the space in combination with white.
Too much red in a bedroom can arouse passion, but it can also put us in warlike energy. white will allow pure and unconditional love to flourish. avoid overdoing black and blue, as these colors will extinguish the passion.
It takes two to tango, and feng shui for love also follows this rule. To bring more love into your space and enrich your life with romance, match your furniture.
Not only will this create balance in your space and support the flow of energy, but it will also create space for a partner you dream of sharing your life with.
You can bring this energy of two into a space using visual symbols and decoration, such as the yin yang symbol. this is one of the most powerful feng shui love symbols as it will create a balance of male and female energy in your space.
Combining bedside tables, sheets and lampshades can help create a balance between the two people and create an energetic space where both can love and express themselves freely.
On the other hand, having a nightstand or accent chair creates more energy for a single person, making one person (if we’re paired) feel suffocated as if they don’t belong in the space.
made the bed and added clean sheets
fresh sheets help keep love fresh and exciting, but also create space for an authentic expression of love.
To invite love even more, use fabric softener and essential oils that remind you of romance and the couple. How would your sheets smell if you woke up next to your soulmate?
Also, no matter if you’re single or in a relationship, make your bed in the morning and put on clean sheets as often as possible to invite freshness and purity into your love life.
To get the best feng shui for love, avoid having a messy bed, as this clutter will reflect on your intimate life.
To bring more stability to your love life and attract a lasting relationship, rely on the power of symmetry.
the southwestern area of the bagua map resonates with a square shape, which is an incredibly stable shape and will help you ground a relationship that is up in the air. square-shaped objects help balance our love lives and create a safe place to build a meaningful connection.
Avoid objects with undefined, wavy shapes in this area, as this can cause illusions and dilute the loving energy you are trying to invite into your space.
the excess of things causes the energy to stagnate. when the southwest area is full of unnecessary or old things, it leaves very little room for fresh energy to enter.
Love is supposed to be light and feel like home, but when things block the flow of energy in this area, it can reflect on the quality of our intimate relationships. so instead of nurturing them, romantic relationships can become strained and exhausting.
This is especially true for the bedroom. Just as we don’t want an old, unhappy romance to influence our new love opportunities, we also don’t want new things to interfere with our ability to attract love.
When practicing feng shui for love, it’s important to declutter your bedroom closet and give the space a break. when you do, you’ll slowly begin to notice your relationships become lighter and more flourishing simply because you’ve shed excess baggage.
remove extra pillows
more pillows or bed decorations means less room for intimacy and closeness. Plus, decorative pillows can confuse our partners, make them uncomfortable, or relax us a bit in the love department.
If you’re single, placing too many pillows on your bed can keep you in your comfort zone energetically, while having just two helps invite a partner into your life.
remove technology & work from the bedroom
In feng shui, technology is considered a distraction, and this is particularly true when it comes to feng shui for love. Televisions and computers not only emit harmful electromagnetic fields, but according to feng shui, they can also distract us from connecting with our partner.
Having these and other devices in our bedroom can mix energies of work and love, causing stress, numbness, and boredom, instead of the intimacy we crave and deserve.
choose your headboard wisely
The headboard is often taken for granted when choosing a bed. however, this apparently aesthetic detail is much more than we think. this element can invite a very stable energy and inspire loyalty in relationships.
This is the part of the bed that we can lean on, and because it offers strong support, it can solidify our love life, energetically speaking. the bigger and more luxurious the headboard, the better.
And because the Southwest area resonates well with the wood element, choosing a bed with a wood or fabric-covered headboard will offer strong support for healthy romance.
choose a bed that is comfortable for both of you
A bed that is too small will restrict the free flow of energy between partners and may even make one partner feel unwelcome.
According to the principles of feng shui for love, you will have more closeness, tenderness and intimacy with a bed that is just the right size for both of you to meet, but still leaves room for comfortable sleeping.
Conversely, if your bed is too big, it can create space between couples and invite emotional distance.
If you’re single, sleeping in a single bed leaves little room for romance, so be sure to replace it with a double or French bed to invite love into your life. make sure both partners can get close to your bed to avoid energy clashes and frustration.
keep crystals for love in the bedroom
crystals like rose quartz, green jade, emerald or rhodonite can work wonders to invite energy loving to your space. you can keep them under the pillow, under the mattress or next to the bed.
love crystals naturally emit high vibrational energy that helps remove limiting beliefs we hold about love and relationships. they can help heal our broken hearts and open the heart chakra, helping us to manifest genuine love where we can connect with another on a soul level.
a bedroom is no place for old memories
Photos of family and friends, no matter how dear they are to you, trigger feelings of nostalgia that can interfere with your desire to attract the love of a new soulmate. the more faces there are in your bedroom, the less privacy you’ll have.
According to the principles of feng shui for love, to invite greater intimacy, we need to create a space for closeness between two people only.
after all, feeling especially romantic isn’t really associated with photos of family members on the nightstand, whether we’re a couple or not.
The same goes for journals that keep secrets about old heartbreaks, as they will take us back to the old energy and prevent new chi from coming in with new love.
give your bed a dominant position
To attract good feng shui and ensure that only loving energy reaches your bed, position it in such a way that you and your partner are in a safe place.
a bed that is placed directly in front of doors will be directly influenced by incoming energy, both good and bad.
Avoid using mirrors in the bedroom, but if you do, make sure they’re not directly facing the bed. this will make the energy heavier and love shouldn’t feel heavy.
make it bright, light & fresh
Speaking of light energy, similar to the feeling of love, the southwestern area of the bagua map should always be bright. It doesn’t matter if it’s natural light or decorative lampshades, the light will banish the secrets and darkness that stir up fears about love and relationships and make us paranoid.
light brings transparency to relationships, helping to promote honesty, joy and warmth in our love lives.
Since windows are energetic entrance doors, to get the best of feng shui for love, open them whenever possible. this will bring in more fresh chi, remove stagnation from your love life, and inspire new beginnings in love.
take care of your decoration
To ignite passion and desire, take the time to choose scented candles for the bedroom. candles represent a fire element, and this will help bring back the spark with your partner if she has been lost.
If you’re single, scented candles and incense can help you attract the kind of partner you want. choose a scent that especially reminds you of love, as it will naturally invite more romance.
Choose artwork that depicts romantic scenes. If you’re a more contemporary or minimalist type of person, opt for paintings and artwork that are symmetrical or matched.
avoid pieces that have blue and too much black, as this can lead to heightened emotions that make it difficult to enjoy the present moment with your partner.
and last but not least, since the southwest area resonates well with the earth element, make the most of it by adding plants to this area. Healthy green and exotic plants, and particularly fresh flowers, can help cement the existing relationship and inspire you to appreciate what you have with your partner. And this also works if you’re single!
If you’re hoping to fall in love, putting fresh red roses or white flowers in the bedroom can set the perfect stage in your home for that to manifest.
Use these feng shui love cures to shift the energy of your home so that it supports your desires for love and romance. you will surely find that when you do, your own energy does the same, allowing you to manifest the love you desire.
