Flowers are one way to bring more chi into a relationship.india Updated: Aug 06, 2011 02:34 IST
Flowers are one way to bring more chi into a relationship. They radiate both the colour and the living chi into a room. In addition, the shape of the flower defines its distinctive chi. Flowers give out romantic chi because they are the means by which a plant reproduces. You can vary the mood of a room simply by changing the flower arrangement. Brighter colours create a more lively, yang atmosphere, and pale shades of the chi are associated with their colour and direction. Since flowers radiate living chi, change the water daily. What rules to follow?
*Place a crystal bowl with petals of different flowers floating in water, in the east of your living room. This will improve relationships amongst family members.
*Use strong, sunny colours like yellow or purple when you want to create greater attraction and passion.
*A pair of red roses, or a bunch of nine, is well suited for the southwest corner. It brings romance and love.
*The cactus plant should never be kept indoors as its pointed leaves will act as poison arrows eliminating the opportunities that come your way.
*For wealth and prosperity, grow an orange plant in the southeast sector. Peach plants placed in the east sector, enhances health.
*Put pink or red flowers in the bedroom when you want to feel more romantic.
*In feng shui, sunflowers livens up the west sector which is associated with children and creativity. For your kids’ bright future, keep sun-flowers.
*The bonsai plant has stunted growth, so it is not considered friendly.
*Live plants or flowers are absolutely taboo in the bedroom. If you must keep plants or flowers here, there should be plastic or cloth. *Never place dry ones, as these are dead, and we want life and energy in our homes and environment.
Plants and artificial flowers
*Flowering plants can have a similar yin as cut flowers. Any kind of artificial flowers will not carry living chi energy and therefore does not make a good substitute.
