When half of all marriages break up in some countries, it’s obvious that many couples are in trouble. Sadly, the stress seems to be only increasing from many directions. Marital or romantic happiness is a critical component of a happy, well-lived life. Of course, one of the keys to an effective partnership is having the relationship on solid romantic footing. Whether you want to bless a new relationship or polish up one that has lost its lustre, feng shui can help. If your career is taking too much of your time and energy away from your marriage, or money worries are interfering with marriage happiness, you need to take feng shui as a tool to deal with these situations and need not allow your marriage to go through rough weather.
If the feng shui of the house is unsuitable, even the best marriages can undergo stress, even though both partners are astrologically compatible. In feng shui, the NW is the sector of the man and SW is the sector of the woman. If either of the sectors is missing, it is possible that either the man or the woman is also missing, such as being away all the time at work. A missing NW or SW corner is therefore considered a serious feng shui affliction. Indeed, when the SW corner has good feng shui, the couple will enjoy harmony and happiness.To strengthen SW, you can use combination of pink and clear crystals in this corner. . For missing or afflicted SW (love, romance, marriage, woman) and NW (breadwinner, man, friends) crystals and globes are great “anchors”. NW can also be enhanced by placing golden metal turtle or bowl full of metal coins. NW is also responsible for enhancing your Heavenly luck. Thus, never have NW missing in any house.
To ensure mutual respect, understanding, pride and harmony one can always focus on Northeast sector. Many marriages suffer from ego, misunderstanding, doubts and infidelity, where NE is culprit. My personal recommendation – never have any plant or water feature in this sector / make this sector stronger by placing earthen vases or ceramic plates or crystals / aroma candles will instantly energize your NE.
Never have large mirrors in the bedroom that either face you each time you lie on the bed or situated above you, reflecting you when you sleep. Mirrors in the bedroom just opposite the bed are very inauspicious feng shui for relationship and suggest the intrusion of a third party coming between them or encouraging them to be unfaithful towards each other.
Simultaneously, never have, any fishpond or water body located in the bedroom or on the right hand side of your main door. Having, a water body on right hand side of the main door, in some circumstances can bring great wealth to the household, but the husband will have a tendency to stray.
Be sure that there is no clutter, in, around and under your bed. Remove work projects, accounting papers and bills. If you are one of those people who store work papers, bills or files in bedroom, stop doing that.
Create powerful feng shui in bedroom with accent pillows, dimming lights, area rugs, soft and satin bed linen to promote intimacy, passion and pleasure. Warm, inviting and graceful bedroom is like heaven where auspicious feng shui can help couples to resolve differences and misunderstanding by promoting emotional compatibility. Furniture made from natural materials works well in the bedroom. Wood such as pine, oak, teak delivers earth’s energy. However, avoid plants in the bedroom. Likewise, I recommend not to have a fireplace in the bedroom. Fire is too hot and too chaotic for the bedroom, making the relationship unstable.
The most popular relationship enhancer in feng shui is the pair of Mandarin Ducks. They are recognized as symbol of strong and long-lasting relationships. You can place this figurine in the personal relationship corner of your bedroom, house or even your office in order to improve your relationship luck. Displaying picture of peonies on outside of your bedroom door will encourage love and romance. If you are single, it will bring opportunities to meet with your Mr. Right. During current year of Snake placing a faceted pink quartz crystal in SW corner is considered to be a powerful romance enhancer. I would recommend women to wear pink quartz crystal bracelet or pendant for improved romantic relationship with their partner. This would also help those who are seeking romantic relationship with someone who they like or love. Also displaying a sign of ‘Double Happiness’ or ‘Mystic Knot’ in SW is a very powerful enhancer of your love, romance, marriage and relationship luck.
