A student recently sent me a copy of an article from AFP's Internet that explains how people in the United States turn to Feng Shui to improve their love life and ability to meet someone, although that is the era of the internet is dating and online romance. In the article, romance with this simple method appears to be yours: "The formula for stirring up romantic energy is simple enough. Fresh flowers are placed in water in a wide neck vase. The color of the flower and the vase must be the same and can be checked date of birth of a person can be determined on a Feng Shui card or by reading it. "
I wasn't sure if I should treat this as a joke or throw this article in the trash can. So I thought let's be positive about it and write about love and feng shui. I think it's time to make a few things clear when it comes to Cupid and your Favorable Direction.
Can Feng Shui Relationships Help?
The short answer to this question is yes. But of course there is also a long answer. First, people need to understand what relationship Feng Shui can help with. There are many Feng Shui classics, but I have not yet found one that asks the Feng Shui master to play Cupid or St Valentine, or asks us to exchange our Luo Pan for a Cupid bow.
And when I say improvement, I don't mean that you can use Feng Shui to make someone like you. Feng Shui is not black magic or love voodoo. I mean, let's face it, if it really only needed a vase and flowers of the same color, why not put the picture of Angeline Jolie or Brad Pitt in the vase? If you have false hope, you might as well go all the way.
Let us make it clear here: it is not about the vase, it is not about the flowers and it is not about paired mandarin ducks. I hate breaking people's duck over it (forgive the pun), but that's the truth. And even in classic Feng Shui there are no "Love Corners". There is no direction or universal part of a person's home that can help you improve your relationship happiness. And it doesn't matter how many peony flower pictures you place there or how many water vases you place there.
This does not mean that there are no directions or sectors in Feng Shui that can help you with relationships. In Eight Mansions Feng Shui, the energies of the Yan Nian star are usually used to improve relationship problems, while Flying Star practitioners usually try to use the 4-1 or 1-4 star combinations. But these are in no way combinations of love, nor is the Yan Nian star a hippie love corner. If you've read in a book that Yan Nian is the love corner or South is the love corner, it is simply because it is more marketable to call something “love corner” than to tell people that it is about their people improve people's interaction skills!
Use the right energies
So let's get to what Feng Shui can do for you when it comes to relationships.
First, let's understand what relationship means in classic Feng Shui. Relationships do not necessarily refer to relationships in love or romantic. When we talk about improving and supporting relationships in Feng Shui, we are talking about general relationships between people. What are these relationships between people? This includes, for example, family relationships, personal relationships with friends, superiors, colleagues, business partners, business partners or suppliers. Now it does not exclude romantic relationships, but it also does not refer exclusively to romantic relationships.
How does Feng Shui help with romantic and non-romantic relationships? And what kind of help are we talking about?
Improving relationships through classic feng shui is about using energies (qi) in certain places at home or in the office to support relationships by smoothing the way to meet or interact with people. It creates opportunities for interaction, networking and good relationships with your fellow human beings. For example, if you find that you are repeatedly stabbed in the back at work, or you lack support from your supervisor or colleague at work, or you are constantly selected by a supervisor at work, you have a relationship problem.
However, many people often do not know that feng shui can also be used to maintain relationships that have become sour after separation. For example, using the Yan Nian sectors can make breaking up a partnership or joint venture or even breaking up a relationship easier, smoother and less controversial. After all, they say in the business world (and even in your private life) that it is worth not burning your bridges! Properly and appropriately using the Yan Nian sector, ending the relationship or divorcing businesses can be an amicable, gracious, and enjoyable affair, rather than a controversial name. Yan Nian is not a love corner, but maybe something like a corner that I don't hate.
Now you may be thinking: what is special about Yan Nian and how does Yan Nian work to support relationships? To understand this, we need to understand how the Yan Nian sector is derived. Yan Nian is not a universal direction. It varies and is derived either from the person's personal gua (if used for personal instructions) or the house gua (if used to identify the relevant sector in the house).
The Yan Nian sector is the sector in which all energies are fully balanced - both Yin and Yang Qi are in harmony there. Therefore, the Qi is sentimental and calming, balances the emotions and enables the development of positive and healthy relationships.
