This post was too much fun to miss and JUST IN TIME for Valentines Day!
Hot Question of the week: How can I make our bedroom more romantic for Valentine’s Day?
Alison: Oh honey, the best way I know to add some sizzle to your bedroom (besides tying up your hubby and having your way with him) is to utilize Feng Shui. Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art of placement that creates harmony and prosperity in our lives. It is believed that adjustments to our outer physical world change and improve our inner selves – by allowing good Qi (energy) to flow through our lives.
Some people poo-poo this aside as some BS, but I know it works as I use it all over my home. The romance and love sector of your home is the far right corner of the overall house – by way of the door you use the most often. So if that’s the front door – stand in your door and find out where the far right corner is of your home. If your house is L shape, draw an imaginary line to make it an even square. You’ll also want to Feng Shui the far right corner of your bedroom.
Pink: Sweet and tender love
Red: Fiery passion
White: Purity and fidelity
- Grow Plants
- Place Stones
To bring new love: Moonstone, Garnet, Rhodochrsosite
To reflect unconditional love: Rose quartz
To enhance and maintain a good love relationship: Ruby
- Include Birds: Birds symbolize the union of man and woman to the Chinese. Look for birds on paintings, fans, and carved boxes.
Make sure that any imagery of birds has more than one bird. Two birds together is ideal, like an image of love birds. If the relationship section falls outside of the house (as in an “L” situation), establish working bird feeders.
Except for self-propagating plants, make sure you include two of everything, such as two chimes, two flower pots, two red candles, two hearts, a man and a woman (or two men or two women).
Images of the sun and moon together are very good, as is the symbol of yin/yang.
Remove images of angels, Buddhas, cactus, anything that could be cooling such as a shower. (A hot tub is enhancing.)
Feng Shui your entire home (in the far right corner) and your bedroom for a romantic interlude neither of you will soon forget!
