How To Not Energetically Cock Block Yourself.
Mmmmm, Love Corner… sounds so cozy.  Ummmm, but what is a Love Corner? My girlfriend thought it was a euphemism for vagina.  Nope, but damn, it should be.

When we left off, in Feng Shui & Dating, Part One, we found your bedroom’s Love Corner, in the back right corner of your bedroom (using the main entry door as the point of orientation).  Feng shui is an ancient art form dedicated to living in harmony with Mother Earth, her material elements and the polarity of yin (feminine energy) and yang (masculine energy).  Feng shui is based upon a map called the Bagua, which is divided into nine equal-sized zones, or ‘guas’. You overlay the Bagua on your floor plan and then use a combination of aesthetics and energetics to align your space.

The Love & Relationship gua occupies the back right corner of the map, thus the back right corner of your home — and hence my name for it — Love Corner.  Furthermore, as we found in your bedroom, each room has a Love Corner. Even your desktop has a Love Corner; my writer clients keep fresh red flowers on the back right corner of their desks to court their creative muse.

When the Love & Relationship area of your home is designed and infused with intention, it boosts the romantic energy emanating from your space and from your aura.  Feng shui is activated with our intention: energy flows where attention goes.  With that in mind, let’s focus our attention on allowing more love into our homes / lives / hearts / beds.

First Things First

Your Love Corner should be clean, clear and positive — no clutter, no dust bunnies, and nothing dramatically anti-love in nature.  If your trash cans are living here, move them.

Personal Growth

Each gua has a corresponding material element and the element of Earth rules the Love Corner.  I am forever talking about placing plants here, as plants are alive and continually growing, as is any epic love story.  And to state the obvious, plants live in the dirt — in actual earth. Place a plant into a glazed terra cotta pot for even more earth. Pairs connote partnership, so get two plants to double the earth. The best bets are healthy round leaf plants; I like to pick one that feels more yang and one that feels more yin for a representation of the delicious polarity of strong sexual attraction.
  Other earth element suggestions: pottery, clay sculpture, marble art objects, crystals

Think Pink

Colors reminiscent of Saint Valentine enliven your Love Corner… reds, pinks, whites.  Consider soft rosy hues, or any gentle shade that evokes sensuality in your world.

Love Sick

The Love Corner of the home is associated with the matriarch of the house.  It is also associated with our digestive and reproductive systems. Never use feng shui as a replacement for a medical diagnosis, yet if you struggle with your menstrual cycle, for example, make sure the energy is clearly flowing in this area.  Look for insightful visual metaphors and remedy.

The Missing Piece

Few homes are perfectly symmetrical.  Most have irregular shapes, particularly in the back of the property.  My last house was ‘missing’ a large segment in the back right of the home, so I employed various feng shui ‘cures’ to remedy my Love Corner.  No reason to stress over an awkward floor plan, or any of the above aspects… I would be happy to help you: I ofter in-person & virtual feng shui consultations through my new consultancy, SUNDAY.

In Closing

Spending the time to align your Love Corner is a beautiful act of commitment, to both self-love and to your current or future romantic relationship.  Consider creating a ritual to keep the energy vibrant: Perhaps you sage once a week or take a seat for your morning meditation.
