You must have seen people adopting Feng Shui for happiness. But did you know that Feng Shui can also help you improve your relationships with others? According to the science, the secret of great relationships lies in the far right or the southwest corner of your room. Incorporating a few simple principles by placing some objects in your room while banning others can immensely improve your relationships. Here’s how to work on your relationships the Feng Shui way:
What must find a place in your bedroom:
Pictures of loved ones: Hang them at a spot that catches your attention as soon as you enter the room. Family portraits strengthen bonds in the family.
A pair of candlesticks or matching crystal balls: This works well for newly-married couples, as pairs symbolise togetherness.
Wind chimes or bells: Pick ones that have a soft and soothing sound. They help in redirecting harmful energies. Hang them at a place where there are no physical partitions between two rooms.
Strong lights: They help in circulating positive chi. In modern houses, people prefer dim lights for aesthetic reasons, but Feng Shui recommends the use of bright lights at home since it enables energy to freely flow throughout. This ups the energy levels of the people staying in it.
Oval or round-shaped mirror: Don’t hang it anywhere around your bed, so as to avoid its reflection in the mirror.
What to keep out:
Television or any other distracting electronic item. They are believed to exude negative energies and hence should be avoided in a place meant for relaxation. If it can’t be avoided, the best way is to cover them while not in use.
Anything that makes a loud, ticking sound. Many people have big clocks like cuckoo clocks or the ones which give hourly updates. They can create anxiety.
Furniture near the doorway. It obstructs the free flow of chi.
Unhealthy relationships. Keep sadistic, negative feelings at bay.
Clutter. A happy home is a clutter-free home.
