If your New Year’s resolution is to find someone special or if you are looking to improve your existing relationship, Feng Shui can help you in some ways. How, you ask? Let’s have a look.
Our environment influences our emotions and performance. A crowded space can add to your daily stress, which may be impacting your love life or family members. The same logic is echoed by the ancient Chinese traditional practice of Feng Shui.
Feng Shui helps you to align yourself with your surroundings so that you can experience peace, joy, sensual energy and romance. And since, according to Chinese astrology, 2022 is the Year of the Tiger — a creature that signifies power, daring, competitive spirit, impulsiveness and communication — its energy has some pros and cons when it comes to relationships too.
Therefore, you need to balance the energies of the apex predator with the elements and fortifying colours of Feng Shui and work on promoting positive energy that may result in improved romance.
Here are some feng shui love tips to invite love in the Year of the Tiger
Declutter your home
It is imperative to declutter your house, as doing so will allow the flow of good energy in your bedroom and living room. When you keep your environment neat and tidy, you will automatically start feeling balanced, peaceful and positive.
Feng Shui experts also recommend clapping hands or ringing a bell to further eliminate any stale or unwanted energy, especially in your bedroom.
Furthermore, making space in your drawers, for your soulmate, can also help in inviting love into your life. To do this, go through your closet and drawers in your bedroom and remove anything that you do not need.
Other than this, negative energies can impact your love life adversely. Look around in your house and discard any photos or sculptures that denote loneliness, wars or sadness.
While cleaning your room, get rid of any belongings that remind you of a previous relationship or something unpleasant in your past. Things, such as letters, gifts or anything that reminds you of your former relationship, should be thrown away. It may be tough to let go, but this might hinder the positive vibes of your present relationship.
Additionally, remember to get rid of too many stuffed toys. According to Feng Shui, they clutter a space.
Recreate your bedroom
It is also advised to keep the bedroom farthest from the front door. This will make you feel more secure, stable and protected. Keep the bed at an equal distance from the walls in your bedroom. Ensure that it does not touch any wall, which symbolises that no one is feeling stuck or deprived in the relationship.
When it comes to the ideal placement of your bed, it should be kept on the opposite side of the entrance door of your bedroom. Avoid placing the bed in line with the door.
Make sure to remove extra pillows. Too many pillows create bad energy in your bedroom. Your bed should not be facing a mirror either.
A double bed with one mattress and a blanket will create more room on the bed and will be comfortable, as opposed to two single mattresses or blankets. While you’re at it, make sure you have fresh and clean bedsheets too.
Twin beds repel love energy, according to Feng Shui.
