ACTIVATE YOUR LOVE

As a feng shui consultant, I appreciate the symbols of love that Valentine’s Day surrounds us with. Hearts, hearts, and more hearts! I’d like to encourage my readers to remember that LOVE is essential to all beings on this planet. Be kind to your neighbors and your neighbors’ pets. Cherish your mom and your sister as much as your spouse. Valentine’s Day does not have to be for couples only. Spread loving kindness wherever you go and it will come back to you multiplied.

Check out this one-of-a-kind art piece necklace I created for one very lucky person. There will never be another one like it. Made from rare Venetian glass beads, Tibetan stone dZi beads, black glass and sandalwood Buddhist mala beads, and one vintage blue resin heart with scorpion embedded within:  Available at ArtBarn on Etsy:

2 HEARTS ON A PENCIL…Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day from Feng Shui By Fishgirl! Hearts are a universal symbol of Love & Relationship (imagine what it would be like if instead of the cute heart shape we associated feelings with our lungs or kidneys?). Notice this picture of a pencil and the twin hearts carved out of the graphite tip in one piece. To me this represents several important ideas to remember about love: its beauty, its fragility, that two hearts are united as one, that we are all connected like links in a chain, that we write on each other’s hearts daily with the words we choose to express ourselves (so be careful what you say to one another so as not to hurt the one you love). Be sure to search through my archives to find several articles related to Love & Relationship and how to improve your feng shui in this regard. Much love xoxo, fishgirl

ALL HEARTS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL

I often advise people to enhance their Love & Relationship areas with symbols of love such as hearts. It’s an easy feng shui solution to rev up the romance. However, not all hearts represent good feng shui. As an artist, I admire the creativity used to design the art shown above. The problem? It looks like a large chunk is missing…the love it represents symbolically either isn’t complete, is falling apart, or is missing something important. It could also symbolize heart health issues. This type of art work does NOT belong in your Love & Relationship area nor the Family & Health area nor any bedroom regardless of bagua sector. It could work in a doctor’s or therapist’s office where it would remind people of hearts on the mend. Remember: keep your feng shui eyes open when looking for art. Check out my Love Power Hearts (I still have a limited number available) that were specifically created to stimulate love, peace, and good health through the use of feng shui color and intention and symbolism. Happy Valentine’s Day!

STUPID CUPID (The Feng Shui of Valentine’s Day)

With appreciation to the unknown artist who painted this Cupid & Psyche...

Uh-oh…Valentine’s Day is here and those cute little cherubs will be wreaking havoc flinging arrows all over the place. Do Cupid’s arrows have any impact on ones feng shui? Being classified as ancient WMD’s, arrows do not have a positive feng shui connotation. Since Cupid’s a mythical figure, his arrows aren’t real, but the pictures of them do symbolically equate love with a painful experience, don’t they? A pierced heart does not exactly give off a warm fuzzy vibe. Stupid Cupid!

Love is a wonderful thing and we all deserve it. Here are some useful feng shui tips to enhance the romance this Valentine’s Day.

1) CELEBRATE YOURSELF Whether or not you have a date on February 14, you should still treat yourself well and have a great time. How about a night out bowling with the guys, or, a spa date with your best girlfriends?

2) HISTORY LESSON If your ex’s name, birthday, or anniversary date is your computer access password or PIN code, change them to something more neutral that doesn’t keep you hooked to your past love chi (energy), clearing the way for new love to blossom.

3) SEEING RED Activate your passion with the color red. Wearing red satin boxers or sexy lingerie under a boring business exterior will give you that secret boost of confidence that helps you in the dating scene as well as the Working World.

4) PAIRED UP The upper right hand corner of any room or space is your feng shui Love Sector. Paired objects are what you want there. A pair of candlesticks side by side is better than separating at opposite sides of the room. Remove solo photos of yourself from this area, replace with pics of happy couples.

5) IN THE MOOD Do use candlelight, music, and beautiful bedding in your love shack. Don’t have clutter, too many electronic gadgets, and mismatched bedside tables.

6) MUM’S THE WORD The Love & Relationship Sector is associated with Mother chi. Send Mom flowers to give you good luck in love.

7) THE LITTLE THINGS COUNT A love note in your partner’s pocket, calling mid-day to tell them you miss them, bringing home your love’s favorite take-out food. . . works better than arrows do.
