Attract or harmonize a romantic relationship with these nine simple feng shui cures.
These easy-to-implement feng shui practices are surefire ways to create an environment that supports and enhances your love life.
Feng Shui Romance Tip #1: Reduce Clutter in the Bedroom
Clearing clutter is always a good idea, but feng shui teaches that if you want to create a romantic atmosphere, it’s especially important to clear clutter from the bedroom. If you can, choose another room for your books, knickknacks, vitamins, appliances, workout equipment, and any other items that contribute to a chaotic and non-romantic vibe. (Otherwise, store them so they’re out of sight.) Additionally, storage under the bed is not ideal if you can avoid it, as it does not contribute to an ideal energy flow.
Feng Shui Romance Tip #2: Create the Space for Two
Feng shui teaches us to create the space for what we desire.
So whether or not you currently live with a partner, incorporate as many romantic and partner-friendly design choices as possible. If you’re in a relationship, this creates the space for, and thus promotes, harmony. If you’re not in a relationship, this will help magnetize one.
For example, it’s ideal for your bed to comfortably accommodate two: this means a large enough bed, two nightstands, and space on both sides of the bed so no one has to climb over the other. If you have a patio, two comfy deck chairs or a cozy loveseat porch swing would be fantastic. Other ideas: a breakfast nook for two, a dining table for two, a loveseat.
Feng Shui Romance Tip #3: Get Family Photos OUT of the Bedroom
You know what doesn’t create the space for romance? A photo of your mom. Or your brother. Or your kids. Don’t worry: you can go ahead and have these photos any old place you like…except the bedroom. If you have empty spaces on your nightstands where your photos used to be, consider candles, floral decor, or Himalayan salt lamps.
Feng Shui Romance Tip #4: Go for Ambient Lighting
Obviously, you would be more likely to plan a romantic date in a subtly-lit restaurant than a fluorescent-bright one. So to attract and promote harmonious romance, light your home in an ambient way as well.
If you don’t want to invest in recessed and dimmer-switch lighting, consider twinkle lights, also known as white Christmas lights. You can run them under cupboards and along shelves, place them in vases, and otherwise arrange them artfully throughout your home for an instant, economical, and feng shui friendly glow.
Feng Shui Romance Tip #5: Choose Warm or Neutral Colored Sheets
Pink sheets aren’t for everyone, but feng shui wisdom tells us they promote romance and relaxation. If pink isn’t your thing, warm white, beige, peach, or chocolate brown will also support passion, intimacy, and romance. Cooler sheet colors like greens and blues, while wonderful for many other purposes, can be cooling to the passions.
Feng Shui Romance Tip #6: Clear the Space After a Break-up
If you still live in the same house you formerly shared with someone else – or even if you didn’t share it, but you did live there when you were in a former relationship – according to feng shui, it’s important to clear the space. Otherwise, some of the old relationship patterns and energy will still be in place. This can cause problems with attracting and maintaining a new relationship.
Be sure to get rid of items that were gifts from, or previously belonged to, the old partner. And if you shared a bed with this person, it’s ideal to replace it.
Feng Shui Romance Tip #7: Bring in Fresh Flowers
Flowers are powerful heart openers, romance magnetizers, and emotion healers. And they instantly uplift the vibe in your home, which of course means good feng shui. Roses are the standby for drawing and maintaining romantic love, but you can get more specific with this complete list of the metaphysical properties of flowers.
Feng Shui Romance Tip #8: Mist with Rose Water
Speaking of roses, fill your home with sweet-smelling feng shui vibes by misting your space with rose water. This will help cleanse away challenging vibrations while aligning your space with the energy of pure romance and harmonious love.
Feng Shui Romance Tip #9: Decorate with Happy Couple Imagery
Imagery is powerful. So be sure your imagery supports your goal of harmonious romance. If you choose artwork that depicts happy and passionate human couples, sweet and whimsical animal couples, or even two trees that you might say are in harmonious relationship, you’re surrounding yourself with visual affirmations of that which you desire. And that’s a powerful thing to do.
