A feng shui dilemma…

I have a feng shui dilemma…My Master bedroom is not in the actual ‘Master bedroom’ of our home..& it is in the ‘Children, creativity & entertainment’ area of the bagua map. I want our bedroom to be a quiet, relaxing, adult sanctuary, free of kids & pets…

So I need some feng shui cures, but what feng shui cures…

Also marriage, relationships & partnerships is outside, when the bagua map is put over our house, both upstairs & downstairs…

I am looking to do the outside relationship area as a ‘feng shui’ garden. Which I can see from our bedroom window…& through the lounge patio doors…

The element is metal…The colours are white, bright & pastel colours – Check!

Metal beds squeak, so no metal bed frames…

Feng shui is about symbolism, so I need to symbolise ‘Children, creativity, entertainment’ in my bedroom as ‘Not in my calm, relaxing’ bedroom…

  • Art with a strong Metal element energy. This can be art depicting actual metalpjätteryd-picture-paris-1935__0485361_pe621491_s4 features, colours white and grey, or round shapes (the shape of the Metal element)

The Eiffel tower is strong, metal, is in the ‘romantic’ city of Paris…So symbolises ‘Romance!’ in our bedroom…

Also Jade’s dream is to go to Disneyland, so ‘Children’ is in there too. I’m sure my other children would like to go there too, but not as much as Jade, lol…

  • Art expressing the energy of creativity. Focus on finding images that represent (to you) the free flow of creative energy. Be mindful about the colours in your chosen art and avoid strong Fire or Water element colours in the West bagua area of your home.

Art which expresses us…We are into totally different things. Though I like horses too, but

in different ways. I worked with horses, owned my own, rode, broke my own horse in & schooled her…My husband is into horse racing, was once a betting shop manager. He named our youngest after his favourite race horse, well her 3rd name ‘Orchid’…but I love orchids…So we need a picture of desert orchid & orchids…That also symbolises our youngest daughter, Chloe. She also wants to ride & work with horse…sooo! Another good symbol of our creativity energy, our children, but not overpowering our calm, relaxing marital bedroom…

 

  • 3. Photos of your children or their art. Choose photos that evoke happy and joyful moments full of wonder and creative expression.

Except you’re not supposed to put those things in your marital bedroom. So they can go in the lounge down stairs, which is also in the ‘Children, creativity & entertainment’ area of the bagua map…

  • Earth element art. Choose art with a variety of landscapes, mountains, or sandy beaches. Creative images of soil are also a good expression of the Earth feng shui element.

Earth strengthens the metal element?…Which is the element in the ‘Children, creativity, entertainment’ area of the bagua map…

Hmmmm! So earth is productive to metal, but metal exhausts earth. Metal is destructive to wood {My plants?} the bed? if it is a wooden frame? So no fire element? A balance of mental & earth. No water element? Except my plants need water…Like with most things in life ‘balance’ moderation…

 

  • Metal or Earth element items such as tall sculptures, decor items in Metal colours (white, grey) and shapes are excellent here. You can also use the shapes of Metal or Earth feng shui elements in order to further strengthen this bagua area. Avoid Fire and Water shapes in all your West bagua area feng shui cures.

Avoid fire & water…but must water my plants, lol…
