Looking for love? Have you found that all your pilates classes, teeth whitening, and win a free Porsche personal ad have done nothing to attract a mate? The problem may be in the bedroom -- but it`s not your ignorance of the butterfly flick.
The ancient Chinese practice of Feng Shui analyzes living spaces to see where energy or "chi" is either stagnated or absent. How you design not only your bedroom but other key areas of your home may be affecting your hello handsome come hither more than you think.
Practitioners like Georgia and Daisy Fotopoulos use a BaGua which is an octagonal energy blueprint which divides your house or apartment into eight sections using the main front entrance as the starting point. Facing in the front door the back right corner is your marriage sector. If this happens to be your personal bedroom - great. If it`s not, try to add something in that room that is symbolic of a romantic union like a heart shaped box or rose quartz crystal to attract the right partner. Even just adding light to that area can attract chi. If it happens to be your bathroom, keep the door closed, you might just be flushing love down the toilet.
Since your bedroom is your romantic epi-center you can focus your Feng Shui efforts there to attract love and romance:
Create room for love in your life
The chi or positive energy should be able to flow smoothly without encountering numerous obstacles from the front door. Once in the bedroom, will it move around smoothly like a warm breeze or will it be smothered by a wet towel, buried under the thirteen outfits you tried on last night and discarded, or stick to the goo left by the exploding lip gloss? Clutter and messiness is a total energy love buzz kill.
But try not to be too neurotic. If it takes you a half hour to get all the pillows and shams in just the right place and your medication alphabetized, that could scare away new love too. Clean up the place and unless you`re going to be flashing the guy in the apartment across the street, open the curtains and blinds, and let the sun shine in and give the place a glow.
Get the clutter out of your closets and drawers as well, donating unwanted items to charity or having a tag sale You never know, you might just meet the man of your dreams when he`s in the front yard trying on your . . . well never mind. One Feng Shui specialist advises leaving 25% of your closets and drawers empty, symbolizing your readiness to have someone other than Jimmy Choo move into your life.
Analyze your imagery
Creative visualization is important to think of how you want your life to look. The images with which you surround yourself will subconsciously affect that energy. A favorite photograph of a headless doll will clearly have to go. Experts note people having trouble finding a mate have numerous images of single figures in their homes. Even if it is a romantic image like a woman in a garden, she is still alone. Include art and photographs which show two people (one of whom is not your ex) and unless you have your heart set on meeting a vet, house the feline family photo in the living room. One woman would actually keep three of her four cats locked in the spare bedroom on dates so guys wouldn`t thing she was one those "crazy cat single women."
Keep in mind to decorate in pairs - like prince and princess lamps or two candles like Tocca`s Tara which is the white ginger lily scent, yummm, or the Chinese symbol of happiness. The most potent Feng Shui love attractors are pairs of mallard ducks which come in rosewood or rose quartz. Put them in the far right corner of the bedroom from where you enter (the room`s marriage energy center). Pink and red are great to stimulate love chi but beware because large doses of red can bring in too much passion and make it hard to sleep.
As well as the far right corner, put romantic imagery on whatever area you first see when you enter the room and the wall opposite the foot of the bed. And Poconos aficionados, be careful of mirrors. A round mirror is a symbol of unity but should not be placed on the ceiling or at the foot of the bed.
