Dear friends, 😀
Further to my post on what is feng shui, I would like to show an aspect where fengshui and chi can be applied in our homes to improve various aspects of our life. This was excerpted from a posting by the Master at this feng shui forum –
Place the colors green, black, and red in the east part of your home. That is where the sun rises at your house. Put images of the following in this area also: streams, trees and fish ponds. Adding a plant or organic accessories, with bright lights will be good to add to this area.
Children and the Family:
This is the area that the sun sets in your house. This is the west. The best colors to use for this area is white, dark blue and yellow. Family photos, toys, awards, crystals, stones and round shapes go great in this area.
This is the south part of the home. This could also represent the area of the home that gets the most natural sunlight all day. Colors are red and yellow. This is a place to put objects that represent you. Photos of yourself, your awards and trophies. Wood objects, and electrical appliances are good for this area. If you do not have a place in your home that gives out natural sunlight then you can create your own with lights and heat.
Business or Career:
This is in the north end of your home or near the main entry. Use dark blue, white, black or gray colors here. Place irregular shapes and metals like gold, copper and bronze. This is the area that putting your phone, desk and computer is good.
The farthest right-hand corner from the entry of any room or the southwest of the house. Use earthy colors like brown and yellow, or the Fire colors such as pink and red. Metals and stones are great. You can also put crystals, romantic objects and photos and still water in this area.
The southeast or the far left of the entry of any room. Use the colors green, red or black. Accessories to use are round-leaf plants. To add to the plant or pot tie a red ribbon around it. Place three coins under your plant. Items to keep out of this area are coffee pots, storage items, electrical appliances and pointy plants.
Travel and friends (networking):
This is in the northwest. This is where you can place your luggage, travel posters and brochures. Other accessories can include angel items, rocks, or crystals. The best colors to use are silvery white, light blue and turquoise.
This is in the northeast. The best colors are white, gray, red, yellow and brown. Use earthy materials and metals. This is a good place for books, notebooks, computers and an office with all the equipment.
Just keep in mind to arrange furniture for coziness, comfort and good conversation. Achieve this by making sure there is empty space for Chi to flow.
