In Part 1 of this article I wrote about ways to bring the passion of Fire into your bedroom.
Did you know that Feng Shui’s Water element also creates a loving bedroom atmosphere?
Water is the element of communication and connection, insight and reflection. It keeps your life on an even keel and provides refreshment for your body and spirit, which in turn helps you attract or maintain a healthy relationship.
Here’s how to bring Water into your bedroom without extinguishing the ardor of Fire.
A simple Feng Shui bedroom tip: evoke the flowing nature of Water with a beautiful throw blanket.
This simple idea adds dimension to any bedroom, transforming it from sterile and cool to inviting and intimate.
- It brings the two sides of your bed together to evoke a place where intimacy can happen.
- It creates a “path” that symbolically leads from one side to the bed to the other, making it clear that two people belong in this bed.
- And it adds vitality to your bed, improving Chi balance with color and texture.
This orange throw combines the color of Fire with the flowing nature of Water, and has the additional benefit of making a huge king-sized bed feel a bit more intimate.
This example shows a monochromatic bedroom that’s sensual nonetheless, partly because of a throw blanket that you just want to reach out and touch!
A simple Feng Shui change like this can make a big difference in a bedroom.
However, watch out for this Feng Shui Bedroom No-No:
The water element can bring much needed harmony and flow into a bedroom, but aquariums have exactly the opposite effect.
Aquariums have a life of their own, totally distracting from any possibility of romance. In my client experience, once these noisy, brightly-lit objects are removed to another room, a new sense of serenity comes into the bedroom, making it possible for them to attract the love they’ve been looking for.
