Feng Shui Bedroom Decor for Love
Adapted from The Sexual Herbal, Prescriptions for Enhancing Love and Passion, by Brigitte Mars, A.H.G.
For adults, decor in the bedroom should focus on pairs; solitary items and images promote independence, rather than harmonious relationships. If you keep one teddy bear on the bed, keep two instead. If you have artwork that depicts living beings on the bedroom walls, the beings should be in pairs, including pairs of people.
Pairs of birds–especially ducks, geese, peacocks, phoenixes, and swans–carved from precious stones, such as adventurine, jasper, rose quartz, and tourmaline, are especially beneficial feng shui.
Two geese flying high is a symbol of togetherness for those already in a relationship; a pair of mandarin ducks attracts new love for those desiring a relationship; a pair of mandarin ducks attracts new love for those desiring a relationship. If you are looking for a heterosexual relationship, make sure your figurines are of the opposite sex–don’t use two male peacocks, for example, unless that’s what you’re looking for.
For good fortune in marriage, keep an image representing the Moon in your bedroom.
If you decorate your home solely as if it were a goddess sanctuary, you shouldnt’ wonder why it only appeals to women. To attract a relationship with a man, at least one-third of the imagery in your bedroom should represent the masculine. Strong masculine images that I keep in my home include Jesus, Pan, Buddha, Shiva, Merlin, and the Beatles.
Likewise, to attract a woman, a small amount of feminine imagery should be featured rather than a plethora of sports posters. For relationship harmony, honor the divine feminine and masculine. Angels work in pairs.
If the bedroom is small, hang wind chimes or a multifaceted or heart-shaped crystal in its center to increase the flow of chi. The symbol of water promotes the healthy flow of chi in many areas of the home, but it is not recommended in the bedroom where it might encourage infidelity. Remove fountains, photographs or paintings of water, and all other water symbols, including sheets with water motifs, from the bedroom.
When you open your eyes in the morning, your first sight should be of beauty. Place a beautiful object in the room in the line of vision that you most often wake up to, so that your days begin with truth, beauty, and goodness.
Do not keep photos of relatives overlooking the bed. Also, remove mementos of previous relationships, which can crate negative energy in a new relationship.
Weather permitting, open windows during the day to allow the angels of light and air to dance inside and bring fresh chi into the bedroom. Hang crystals in the windows to bring rainbows of delight into the boudoir.
Color in the bedroom can have a powerful effect on the psyche and the flow of chi. The most arousing colors are reds, ambers, oranges, and purples. Generally, men find red to be more erotic; women seem to prefer violet. Red, pink, and peach are the best colors for the early years of a relationship. Red symbolizes passion. Pink is the combination of the passion of red muted with the purity of white. Peach blends the passion of red with the wisdom of yellow. However, excess red (such as a room painted red) may be overstimulating and could cause arguments. Blue, yellow, and white are more friendly than sexual.
Soft lighting is necessary for romantic occasions. Natural candles work well. Another option is soft pink lightbulbs, which flatter the body and are easy on the eyes. Keep one of these bulbs available for a bedside light. Also consider stringing holiday lights in your bedroom for a joyous illuminating effect.
Different colors can be added to the bedroom in moderation in the form of candles, fresh flowers, pillows, luxurious fabrics, and wall or ceiling hangings.
