Placing candles of red and yellow at Southwest or Northeast could enhance prosperity, health and happiness.
Feng Shui is not a religious practice or a belief but in its simplest form is the art of placing or arranging objects within a space based on certain calculations and logical analysis. It could also be referred as an environmental science and its origins are simple and it is the interpretation of the natural world. From nutrition to medicine, exercise (Taichi), martial arts, fine arts to calligraphy, Feng Shui underlies all aspects of life.
Everything in the Universe is energy. All life forms, including humans, are comprised of subtle electrical fields that affect vital functions such as growth, metabolism, health, thought, emotions and movement. At the quantum level, the human body composed of ions, minerals and water is a conductor of electrical energy. Billions of electrical impulses regulate the activity of every living cell affecting our human body’s well-being and its ability to heal itself.
A dark, untidy bedroom, for example, contributes to an atmosphere of fatigue and depression, which in turn makes it harder for you to find the energy to clean the place up and air it out. In Feng Shui terms, it is also undermining your ability to attract and maintain a joyful and supportive romantic attachment. On the other hand, a clean, fresh and organised bedroom ensures good sleep and health which in turn contributes towards your overall prosperity. Simple Feng Shui tips are potent enough to bring out subtle changes in your life.
A slow and meandering energy flow is considered very auspicious and this can be achieved using plants, low furniture and room dividers such as counters and side boards that slow down the ‘Chi.’
One can say that Feng Shui has been adjusting the environment for thousands of years by adding or subtracting items from the environment to create smoother and harmonious energy. The Chinese believe that the life force operates through the interplay of the five elements — fire, earth, metal, water and wood. Each of these elements represents a vital human organ and any interference of the elements causes an imbalance in one of these five elements.
- Placing candles of red and yellow at Southwest or Northeast could enhance prosperity, health and happiness.
- If you feel excessively stressed out, look around for excess dark red colours and after identifying the spots, change the colours.
- Occasionally change the furniture or create a new arrangement but ensure it does not obstruct the flow of ‘Chi.’
- Maintain the home periodically through re-painting and ensure that the areas like the terrace, balcony and the canopies are cleaned.
