Feng Shui and Romance
Valentine’s Day draws our attention to gifts, events and simple gestures that say “I love you”. Feng Shui encourages you to build that romance into your home and into your daily life, not save it up for one special day a year.
Set up your bedroom to encourage romance, or add romance throughout your home.
Romantic lighting is not just for the bedroom. Light is a form of energy. When added to a space it adds energy, yang energy. When light is dimmed or turned down that encourages relaxing and romantic yin energy. In your living room, place a lamp or two next to your favorite sofa or love seat. Ideally used lamps with a 3-way switch or dimmer. Set the lights on low. Dim or turn-off the other lights in the room. Add wine or decaf cappuccino. Play some soft music. This is great for after dinner-for-two or after the kids are down for the night.
Create the space and time for you as a couple.
If that special someone is not in your life, do an intention and visualize that special person and what you do together as a couple.
My valentine to you.
This charming video of an Oscar©-nominated [now Oscar©-winning] animation short by Disney is an object lesson in getting the love you want.
- Identifying your goal. (Paperman was a bit slow on the uptake.)
- Persistent effort (He was persistent and used more than one approach.)
- Accepting help that comes your way. (Paperman’s help was magical, but sometimes the most magical things in our lives look very ordinary.)
