One day someone walked into your bedroom and told you to rearrange your bedroom if you want to find long-lasting love.
He also advised you to place some decorative ornaments in pairs in your room and not to sleep under an overhead beam.
If you have never heard of feng shui, you would have thought he might be from some mental asylum.
But this is what a feng shui practitioner would have advised you.
It feels crazy if you don’t understand the philosophy behind it.
Feng shui is an ancient art that teaches us the arrangement of one’s home and possessions to affect a universal force called qì that attracts good luck and prosperity.

I once lived in a New York City apartment for two years and I do not even know the names of the people living next door.
According to a 75-year Harvard study, having a relationship is one secret to happiness.
If you look at statistics, most states in America have about a third of the household consisting of a single person.
In the District of Columbia alone, more than a third of the households are single-person households.
Many of these people may have been married but are now single because of divorce or the death of a partner.
Feng Shui Tips that Matter

But feng shui at its core premise is about harnessing positive energy from our environment.
A positive environment in turn improves your emotions and overall well-being.
A positive emotion leads to a great human-to-human relationship, which then leads to great love life.
Use Your Daily Items in Pink Color
Pink as the color of love is not just a feng shui thing.
There is this thing called color psychology.
Pink is universally associated with love and femininity.
Wearing pink help create that love vibe.

Use Round, Circled Objects
The circle shape stands for perfection. Avoid angular ones.
For example, wear a round-shaped watch instead of a rectangular one.
Attend More Special Events
If you are invited, please attend special events such as birthday parties or your best friends’ weddings! Please do not reject them.
You get to know more people and make friends.
Always make an effort to attend special events like a wedding party if possible.

Place Lush Plants and Flowers in the House
Place lush plants and flowers in your house.
A pot of lush plants symbolizes growth in feng shui.
Lush plants not only help dissolve shā qì but also symbolize growth and help your love emotion.
Let Warm and Natural Light into Your Bedroom
Light represents qì energy and is one of the strongest energy sources.
It’s a basic element of a good feng shui.
You need to encourage as much qì as possible into the bedroom during the day.
By opening the blinds or curtains during the daytime, you help replace the stale energy accumulated in the room with fresh energy.
Let more natural light into your bedroom as it helps energize your bedroom.
If possible, open the windows as well.
While sunlight is a good source of qì, you do not want direct sunlight into the bed as you will overactivated the energy in the bed.
Consequently, you will have difficulty sleeping on such a bed.
Declutter Your Bedroom
From a relationship point of view, your bedroom is the most important room in the house.
A cluttered bedroom embodies stale energy and will make you emotionally drained.
Always ensure your bedroom is clutter-free as much as possible.
Cluttering of the bedroom leads to the cluttering of your mind and makes you unhappy.
Make Sure Your Bed Not in a Coffin Position
People are buried according to their horoscope in ancient China.
This means it could be months before they could be buried. The coffins would be lined up in the courtyards of a temple.
When the Chinese see the foot of the bed pointing directly towards the door, it reminds them of this coffin position.
The foot of your bed must not point directly toward the main entrance to the room.
This is not just a bad feng shui but a bad omen as well.
Place pink crystal or rose quartz
Pink crystal or rose quartz has a miraculous effect on love.
You can place them on the head of your bed.
Avoid Black and White
Black and white symbolize death in most cultures.
A couple wearing black and white.
People attend funerals in black and white attire.
So, avoid such colors from permeating your surroundings.
Decorate and renovate your home with pastel tones such as light blue, pink, beige, opal, or yellow. That will improve your love emotion.
Avoid Objects that Imply Singlehood
Change all solitary items in your home into pairs.
When placing plush toys in your home, always have them in pairs as a single soft toy implies singlehood.
If you have plush toys, try to place them in a pair.
You can also hang some paintings or artworks that depict a loving couple like mandarin ducks as it is considered auspicious.
