Whether you are selling your home or improving it for your own enjoyment, the principles of Feng Shui can be very useful. In Part 1 of our Feng Shui It! series [How To Improve The Career Area of Your Life], we discussed how to divide your floor plan into the 8 life areas as represented by the Bagua Map. If you haven't read it yet or want a refresher, you should probably read it now before continuing with Part 2, so that you'll have a better understanding of how this translates to your particular floor plan. I'll wait here while you do that.
Welcome back! I hope that you found Part 1 to be informative - now to carry on.
In Part 2 of our series, we will be looking at the Love & Marriage area of your home. You will see from the Bagua Map that this area is located in the top right hand corner of your home. So, how does your Love & Marriage area stack up? If you think it could use some improvement or you want to add even more spark, here are some things you can try:
- Add the colour pink to this area of your home. Pink is believed to enhance the Love & Marriage area of your home. Unless you and your partner both really love the colour, I probably wouldn't go so far as to paint all the walls pink. If your partner is not fond of pink, this might be counterproductive to improving the love area of your life (if you know what I mean). Try adding a few pink accessories instead.
- Speaking of accessories, the Feng Shui element of Earth is very complimentary to the Love & Marriage area. Try adding accessories that represent the Earth element such as items made of clay pottery, tile or stone.
- Hang a picture of you and your loved one in the Love & Marriage area.
- If your relationship is going stagnant, try adding a mirror to the Love & Marriage area of your home. Mirrors help to move good energy (Ch'i) through your home. Don't put mirrors in your bedroom though, if that happens to be part of the Love & Marriage area on your Bagua Map. Their energy can cause sleep problems.
These are just a few tips to get you started. There is much more to know about Feng Shui and how it can help improve certain areas of your life.
P.S. For any gentlemen reading this, jewellery also works wonders to enhance this area of your life - not a Feng Shui principle, just an observation ;-).
