Symmetry plays a very interesting role in Feng Shui. There is no such thing as perfect symmetry. Even the wings of a butterfly will show variation from one wing to another, despite the fact that they are considered symmetrical. In Feng Shui, symmetry provides order for an environment, which allows the life force energy to flow evenly. Within this flowing of energy, there is a feeling of balance, safety and therefore, harmony, which is created as a result of symmetry. To live in “Perfect Symmetry” would be near to impossible but an environment that creates a sense of balance and order is a good one to aim for, and it will ultimately create good Feng Shui.
When things are not in order and out of synchronicity between the building and the energy of the occupants they create disturbances, misunderstandings and arguments. The feel of the space and the unhindered flow of energy smoothens ruffled feathers and ensures a smooth flowing life for the occupants. In order for energy to flow powerfully and for your space to support your mental and emotional well-being the clutter must be cleared. The key is not just eliminating clutter from your environment, but from your mind and heart too. Success depends on concentrated effort. ‘A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.’ So if you’ve been plagued by inconsistency lately concentration is probably what you’ve been lacking, then Feng Shui for your mind is very essential.
Homes have subtle intangible energy caused by influences such as the inner spirit of the home. When this energy becomes negative, sick, and stagnant or stale, it brings in misfortunes, obstacles and problems. The negative chi creates obstacles that impede harmonious flow of energy.
Most often such situations create bad vibes which make relationships go bad. It could be simple interaction at work and you are mistaken for no fault of yours and culminate into unpleasantness both at home and at work. This is indicative of existence of bad energy which has affected the relationship luck.
The bad energy from Feng Shui point of view could be due to many reasons but it is observed that most often it is due to the bad earth energy in the home which in turn could be due to simple passage of time or even positioning plants at the wrong sector of the home. Plants represent wood energy and when these are inadvertently placed in earth sectors like Southwest or Northeast, they deplete the earth energy.
If quarrels are a common thing and husband and wives have arguments and quarrel over trivial things and no logical reasons, then we could narrow down on the bedroom area and a simple remedy is to place a décor in red and gold in the bedroom. You could also replicate this remedy in the family dining area. The remedy could be a simple wall painting in red and gold, picture of lotuses or a combination of goldfish and lotus.
Lastly observe the furniture and décor in the bedroom. The furniture in the bedroom plays a crucial role in establishing the quality of energy in the room which translates to overall harmony, good health and improved relationship. Sharp corners and edges pointing towards the bed, placing very tall cupboards and shelves in close proximity to the sleeping area are all bad Feng Shui as they over power the rooms and generate negative chi.
