There is no doubt that without love and happiness in our lives, there is no wealth. Only when we have good relationships and harmonious feelings with our friends, family, spouses and partners, do we feel our happiest. It’s this happiness in our relationships with others that creates contentedness with life, ability to move smoothly up the ladder of success — and often means that we are rewarded financially and emotionally for that harmony.
Feng shui is more popular than ever, and more and more people understand that when their homes and businesses aren’t comfortable, attractive, or harmonious, it can create discomfort, disease, and bad luck that hurts their finances, relationships and career.
When it comes to key influences in our lives, few are important as the bedroom in feng shui, and in particular, sleep. The time we spend sleeping is so central and important to our lives that the colors we surround ourselves with have a profound influence over us. By selecting a comforter color based on its specific inspiration, we’ll have more impact on this particular area of our lives.
Your surroundings can have a huge impact on your life – to the point of affecting your personal happiness, your prosperity, even the opportunities that come to you in your life — thus making your choice of home a very important one.
Everyone’s heard there’s strength in numbers and that certainly extends to feng shui, where pairs constitute the concept of double goodness. Think about anything good and you want seconds – like you do with chocolate cake, a second date with a special someone, or another prosperous opportunity. In feng shui, though, whenever there is something auspicious, such as a symbol, it’s even more powerful and potent when it’s used as a pair.
In feng shui, all homes are not created equal. This is especially true in apartments. It also means applying feng shui is also a bit trickier. But, with a few basic steps, you can apply feng shui to your apartment quickly and easily.
Ever wonder why you’re working so hard at feng shui and it’s not working for you? Maybe it’s because feng shui often works like a radio. When you’re trying to listen to 105.2 tuning the dial to 105.3 or 105 might pick up the station, but it won’t come in clearly, if at all, or it will have a lot of static.
All energy in the universe exists as a duality; it’s either positive or negative, yin or yang. Yang energy is the bright energy of laughing children, blooming flowers, energy moving, and outward movement. Yin energy is the energy of darkness, stillness, and going inwards. Both are important, but when one is out of balance, the house can become overloaded with that energy.
Much has been written about whether clocks represent good feng shui or not. Like most things in life the definitive answer isn’t a yes or a no. Instead, the answer is: it depends. It’s the exception to the rule to find an instance where a feng shui answer is black and white.
No other room in the house offers the feng shui potential that the living room does. This room is central to family life and to feng shui. When it comes to feng shui, no other room can compare to the living room. That’s because the living room is the ONE room in the house that can be activated according to all nine sectors of the bagua or lo shu square — making this a very important room, indeed.
Feng shui in the Year of the Snake poses some severe challenges. In my 2013 Feng Shui Forecast, I wrote that children are under an influence that can cause them harm – particularly from metal – like guns, cars or knives. But that’s not the only concern we have in 2013, but it is among the most sensitive.
One of the most fascinating ways to use feng shui is to use it personally based on your Chinese zodiac sign. Each person in a household has their own individual zodiac sign and based on this sign, you can see important distinctions about that person.
