With so many of February's energies devoted to flowers and hearts, what better time to share a Feng Shui secret demonstrating how the former could quite possibly lead to the latter?
This tradition says that red or pink flowers -- preferably placed in a pink, white, crystal, or clear glass vase and placed on both bedside tables (because you do have two bedside tables, yes?) -- will heal relationships on subtle, yet sublime levels. Following this Feng Shui idea may even bring a new mate your way!
Of course, if you use roses for this (or any other) Feng Shui cure, be sure to remove the thorns before you place the roses on display.
Flowers are said to open the heart to affection and love -- and these particular flowers promise to do exactly that!
Whether it's a night out on Valentine's Day or any other time, Feng Shui suggests that wearing red instills a sense of confidence and optimism -- while also helping you make a potent connection with a special person. Indeed, wearing red makes for a dramatic and sexy impression as it draws others to this hue of attraction and luck!
Peach is also capable of sending out passionate vibrations ... albeit much more subtle ones. At the same time, pink is believed to bless you with innumerable opportunities for finding a mate.
Wearing any of these colors in combination with others (or even on their own) will boost your courage and send vibrational signals, all while helping make the connections that light your inner fire!
February, not April, can sometimes be the cruelest month -- especially if everyone else appears to be happily paired up while you've just suffered a bad breakup.
One way to ease your way back into a healthy and happy state of mind is to wear (or simply handle) an amethyst crystal. Known as the "sobriety stone," amethyst is believed to be capable of taking your mind off your previous partner so you can move on and find someone more suitable for you.
So, the next time you set out to stalk your former lover on social media, grab an amethyst crystal instead and break that bad habit!
If you're hoping to attract a new partner or add passion to an existing relationship, this month's unconventional "recipe" is designed for you!
Blend a bit of honey into a glass of cool water, then drink the full glass slowly. Next, fill your bath with warm water. As you stand naked, cover yourself with warmed honey before entering the bath to soak for at least 20 minutes. While bathing, visualize what your love life looks like with your ideal partner.
Once you emerge from the bath, dust yourself with a blend of cinnamon powder and corn starch. Your romantic prospects should be looking really delicious now!
Did you know that Feng Shui honors what are known as "The Eight Auspicious Objects" of Buddhism? Each of these storied objects is indeed believed to bring good fortune.
One of these items, the conch shell, is considered a traditional symbol having to do with networking success; it's also associated with romance. Feng Shui suggests that if you are separated from your significant other and concerned about interference from a third party, you should position a conch shell under your partner's side of the bed you share.
And if you're looking for love and you travel often, always carry a conch shell with you to ensure your journeys yield potentially interesting introductions!
If you're feeling drained this month, then consider making a few powerful -- and positive -- changes to your bedroom to make it a more peaceful, sacred, and supportive space.
Naturally, the first thing you should do is clear any lingering clutter, since messy areas symbolize unfinished business and can cause unnecessary anxiety. Feng Shui also dictates that adding a healthy green plant to your formerly cluttered space will not only lower your blood pressure, but represent new and wonderful growth in your own life!
Furthermore, aromatherapy elements such as diffused essential oils -- calming chamomile, lovely lavender, and the like -- will pamper your senses and put you in an improved state of mind. Lastly, moving your bed a mere quarter of an inch to the right or left is believed to attract new opportunities, allies, and perhaps even love interests into your life!
