How to use Feng Shui to attract love is perhaps one of the most popular questions people ask about the ancient practice. Many people, whether looking to attract love into their lives, or spice up existing relationships, utilise the concepts of Feng Shui.
But how can you use this practice in order to attract energy that’s specific to love? Your bedroom is going to be the room that has the most impact in determining this. It is the most intimate room in the house. A room that is more personally you, than any other in the house. It is here we will look to implement positive and loving energy.
First, it is essential to remember that the most important aspect attracting love, in Feng Shui and any other area, is that you need to love yourself. Make sure you do hold this love for yourself, and if you need any help, here’s a guide on learning to love yourself unconditionally.
The most important aspect of attracting love into the bedroom is to have your bed in the ‘command position’. A command position essentially means that you will face the door from the opposite side of the room, but you won’t be situated directly in front of it. Usually, the point diagonally furthest from the door will offer the greatest common position for your bed.
Also ensure that your bed is supported by a solid wall behind it. This position allows you to be in visual command of the space. It allows you to face life and energy directly, both literally and symbolically.
If for some reason you can’t put your bed in the command position, get as close to it as possible and hang mirrors diagonally opposite each other in the hallway, just outside the bedroom door, in order to slow the energies down that are entering.
Change Linen Often
Not only is this hygienic, it also encourages a loving atmosphere. You can contrast lighter colored rooms with brighter colored lined. You don’t want to use over powering colors in the bedroom however. Instead opt for natural colours such as creams and pastels.
Avoid white as it can be highly reflective and cause the lighting to be overly hard and the room to feel cold. Use colors from a cream right thought to a light chocolate to keep the warmth in the room and promote warm energy.
Use red bed linen to heighten passion, however don’t use it too often as it can cause the passion to burn out.
Creating Space For Another
If you’re in a relationship then you should make sure that each person has their own designated wardrobe space, drawers etc. Keep the space you have even to promote balance.
If you are single, keep some of these spaces empty as if you were saving them for someone. This energy encourages new relationships and romantic interests.
Accessories & Furnishing
You can also suspend a small crystal sphere from a silver thread directly inside the door to improve and strengthen all of your relationships – most especially your romantic ones.
The back-right corner of your bedroom is the area that is most aligned with romantic relationships. This is a great area to place pink candles to light every once in a while. (Don’t leave unattended!)
Essential oils to use include Ylang Ylang, which is a natural aphrodisiac. Remember, as with the sheets, use sparingly to make sure the effect stays as potent.
When it comes to furnishings in the bedroom, almost everything should be done in two’s. Two bedside tables, two lamps, two lockers, two wardrobes etc. Of course, this depends on space and if you can only fit one of something in, make sure it is clearly separated in the middle and each person allocated their own space.
The only piece of furniture that should remain as 1 is the bed. This symbolises the place where you and your love come together in the midst of positive and loving energy.
