Wow it only seems like yesterday we were celebrating Valentines Day and here we are again.
A Valentines Festival in China is called the Qixi Festival when they celebrate the joining and meeting of the weaver girl and the cowherd boy and is held on the 7th of August 2019.
In Australia here we know it as the day true love shines. When many a young man spends up big to impress his true love in the hope that she will reciprocate back to him. Do you remember your very first Valentines Day.
I have been with my wonderful hubby Rob for over 35 years and let me just say it does not just happen – it takes some work. I can be hardwork some days (As a Dragon in Chinese Zodiac we are good at self punishment) but we have our own little quirky codes and sayings to get us through those days. In the most though we are great, we are both on the same page for work habits (we are each as bad as the other sometimes) family expectations and our loving barometer.
I have been working with a wonderful couple recently and she is running out of her Valentines days so she makes the most of them every year she has left. She decide to start making things from the heart instead of buying them. One year it was flowers from her garden, another it was photos re-living the story of their love and union. This year she has chosen to bake from the heart and is making her wonderful husband cupcakes. 1 cupcake and decorating in a theme of their most memorable Valentines Days.
When working in your home remember that our home has a “Birth” Chart before we place the energy of 2019. If you do not know your chart we can still work out were some of the yearly energy is coming from simply by noting the compass directions in your home.
In your home the 2019 energy of Romance is coming in through the North of your home. I have come to realise over the years working with so many people one of the main areas that they would like support is finding “The One”, or improving their current relationships. The thing is we can work with your environmental energy but you also need to do some work around your mindset energy. Your intentions are creating the lack and unless you change the limiting belief or negative belief you have around relationships then the journey is going to be all the harder. If you are finding that your thoughts are creating intentions that are not in alignment with how your would like your relationships to be then jump onto our website and book a 15min FREE chat with me and we can talk about other tools ways we can work with your intentions.
This is also the energy of your career so be sure to watch out for the opportunities that are coming in.
Mandarin Ducks – over the centuries known in China as the ducks of longevity in relationships as they mate for life. If they lose their mate they remain unattached and can soon die themselves, they are never wavering in their devotion. They also represent marriage, relationships and love. They are said to bring harmony to a relationship. When you place your ducks make sure they are travelling together towards the same direction. This ensures that your relationship is also traveling on the same path. Never have them facing each other head on or one behind the other. You can place your ducks in the North for this year or still in the South West of your home as this is our sector of marriage and relationships. You could also place them in the South West of your bedroom. http://fengshuistoreandmore.com/product/mandarin-ducks-gold-resin-pair/
Rose Quartz – the crystal of love energy and healing the heart and emotions. It is said to be a more femanine energy and of unconditional love. Rose Quartz opens the heart charkra for healing. The wearer of rose quartz is said to attract love. It is also a gentle enough crystal to place in your bedroom and to enhance the bedroom.
Water – be careful with this one if you add too much you may overactivate the Romance energy and end up with someone in the union that you do not want there.
An extra person can arrive and start to sweep you off our feet, or sweep your loved one of their feet.
If you are single then take a look at what you have in the North area of your home and work space. It is always the intention we are setting in our environment that creates our reality so be careful of what you are thinking and creating. Here a few tips and ideas that have become known for bedrooms and relationships.
Is it clutter free and Qi can flow freely.
- Make the bed up with fresh sheets and give your room energy a freshen up and make over.
- Every bed should have a good headboard – solid headboard for support and stability.
- Do you have paintings or prints that only depict 1 person and not a couple. Be careful of paintings that depict an extra person in them.
- You can also add in your little cheeky boy here with his tantric surprise underneath him. http://fengshuistoreandmore.com/product/cheeky-boy/
- Add your Double Happiness hanger on your bedroom door. Every body wants a little happy.
- Make a couple of collections that represent pairs, couples or twos which can be either Vases, Paintings, Statues – these are great if they represent a couple.
- It has also been said to never leave suitcases stored under the bed as this is a sign of one of your packing and moving out, when you sleep on the suitcases. Keep the energy under your bed free and flowing.
- Another questions to ask yourself is – Is there room for another person in my bedroom? Some alternate ideas are:
- Can they fit there clothes in the cupboard – is there room .
- Is there room for their pillow on the bed.
- Where would they put their toothbrush.
How is your bedroom working for you?
Knowing your ming gua can assist you in knowing which is your best relationship direction, this means communication and opportunities within yourself and your home .
Another area of our home that can impact our relationships this year is the South, this is our argumentative, complaints, conflict. Make sure you have red in this area for 2019.
What ever Valentines Day is for you may it be just that day where you take time to give yourself some love as well as to those around us.
