Jill, a city like Hong Kong, is home to many young, single people who seem to work hard and play hard. Leading such hectic lives they often have no time for romance and many profess they are lonely and are looking for ‘the one’. Can Feng Shui help to attract love into your home and life?
[Jill Lander] The Chinese have a beautiful belief about couples being preordained at the time of birth to marry each other. The theory goes on to state that the God of Marriage, or the old man of the moon, matches young girls to boys at birth, by tying invisible red silk threads onto their toes. When these preordained couples grow up and meet, they will be powerfully drawn to each other, and marriage between them is the definite outcome. Coincidentally they will also be in tune astrologically. However, relationships have never been as complicated as they are today, with so much pressure to meet the perfect partner who has it all. Feng Shui can certainly help attract and draw to you someone to enhance your life the first step is to be sure of what you want in a partner and be very specific!
Feng Shui connects our outer environment with our inner environment. So our living spaces have a vital role to play. Jill, we have often heard of the relationship area of a home. How do we determine such a relationship area?
The sector of the house that most affects the quality of a relationships is the southwest as this is has strongest of feminine earth energy, which represents the most nurturing and loving energy. The southwest corner of a home governs marriage and happiness. If you are searching for romance and marriage, then the southwest corner is the first area of the home to ‘activate’ and ensure it is a complete sector of your living space.
What I mean by ‘complete’ is that if your home has an irregular shape. For instance, if a particular area is missing, for example, an L-shaped space will always have a space missing, which indicates that ‘energy’ is missing. When the southwest corner of a home is missing this indicates that relationships may be hard to find and maintain.
In addition to the general southwest energy relating to harmony and love, each person has his or her personal direction. A personal direction, which when made active can increase and boost relationship luck. The gender and year of birth determines an individual's personal direction and is called the Nien Yen direction.
