Take this with as much fun or seriousness as needed :)
We know that Feng Shui is an ancient system that strives to achieve harmony between people and their surroundings/environment. Ok, well it is all about the cause and effect: why things happen to us when they do and what can we do to steer ourselves onto a different path.
Re-ordering Chi in your space can affect every aspect of your life – even your chances of a happy marriage! So, here are some tips from my Little Big Book for Brides to encourage good Chi on your day and in the lovely marital home.
* A bride should go to her wedding in a red car, but if that isn’t going to happen then maroon, yellow or white will do and enhance yang energy! An endless knot should be tied to the front of the car, which signifies undying love between the couple. Oooh & Ahhh!
* When the couple arrive at the reception venue, they should be greeted by a loud sound like the band or DJ playing loudly. This has the double effect of representing yang energies. So rock on!
* When decorating the reception venue, don’t have any dried flowers. It’s also good to have all the colors of the nine lives represented somewhere – dark blue/black, red, yellow, pink, gold or purple, gray or silver, and white. This helps keep all the energies balanced, giving the couple an auspicious start to their marriage.
* Wedding vows should be exchanged within red envelope. Red signifies strong yang energy, which will imbue your words with power and luck, while the rectangular shape of the envelope heralds back to the protection provided by ancient Chinese shields.
* It is bad feng shui to have the marital bed reflected in a mirror (gasp!). Why? Mirrors leave couples wanting to look elsewhere for more satisfaction. These are the books words, not mine!
* Light earth tones are perfect for the bedroom because earth energies nurture your body. Fiery colors like red and hot orange (which are lovely to me), should be avoided. While they do incite passions, they keep you from restful sleep. Colors like blue and purple – avoid at all costs.
* Remove anything with pointy corners. No explanation needed besides round and curved gives off better chi by mimicking the form of the body.
That’s a lot to do isn’t it? Does anyone have other suggestions or have you implemented any of these particular options??
