Feng Shui Your Rooms With Fresh Flowers
Lift the feng shui of your home’s rooms with fresh and healthy flowers. They recharge the chi and, when kept in a water filled vase, introduce the water element, which boosts the energy of wood areas like the east and southeast. Each flower has its own characteristics chi too, depending on its shape, color, height, season and speed of growth.
Fire energy shines from the tall, narrow vase and the bright red tulips. This arrangement will seem to add warmth to a room, and is ideal in the south to encourage recognition. Fire also represents passion, so it’s perfect for relationships, in the southeast.
Use the sunflowers to bring in the full, expansive nature of fire, as they reach their glory in the height of summer. Short stems and drooping grass leaves have the earth energy. This display is good for the south ‘fire’ area.
White flowers represent metal energy so they are particularly good in the west and northwest areas. They are also said to encourage a sense of stability and strength. The vase is tall and green, so it has a wood energy which enhances metal.
The shape of the vase is a way of influencing feng shui. This vase’s shape is earth like because it is round and full bellied, while the anemones are arranged in a compact and settled style making it ideal for the center, southwest or northeast.
Clear glass has fire chi so go for flowers with a fire chi too. Try red, orange, pink or purple flowers. Then arrange them in a southwest area to help your relationships or in the south to enhance your sense of worth.
Use tall, upward vases and plants to highlight the wood element. The straight and vertical stems bring in the uplifting energy of spring and the dawn, making it an ideal arrangement for the east or southeast.
