HARNESSING MANDALA YIN ENERGY

Spokes of a mandala roof.

Circular shapes are yin based energy (feminine) and are reminiscent of the mandala wheel of life. Good feng shui? You bet! I discovered Mandala Custom Homes on facebook and borrowed these pictures to show you the amazing architectural energy created by this design.

You don’t have to throw away your box or rectangle shaped home to capture the yin energy of curves. Introduce curves through your furniture. Choose a round dining table instead of a square.

The circle window to the sky recalls the oculus in some ancient temples.

Lamps, windows, and mirrors are also convenient ways to bring in round shapes. The idea is to achieve a balance between yin and yang (square masculine shapes) so that both energies are represented.

You can also harness mandala energy by hanging an actual mandala as art in your home.
