Feng shui is the Chinese art or practice of creating harmonious surroundings that enhance the balance of yin and yang, as in arranging furniture or determining the siting of a house. Many real estate agents will tell you that prospective buyers ensure the home has good feng shui prior to purchasing. These feng shui tips are designed to revitalise your bathroom and help keep the positive energy flowing.
Keep your bathroom clean and organised to eliminate the negative quality of energy in the bathroom.
Greens and blues are beneficial feng shui bathroom colours. Blue represents water, which cleanses and purifies, while green represents life, new growth and beginnings. White is also a wonderful symbol of purity and cleanliness.
Keep the bathroom light and airy. Natural light is best. Fluorescent light is considered bad for the nervous system.
BEAUTY AND NOURISHMENT
This can be anything from a soothing image, to natural wax candles or an aromatherapy diffuser.
Live plants purify the air and bring vitality and freshness whilst images of nature suggest rejuvenation. Do not place plants in the south, southeast or east of your bathroom. Having plants in the north of your bathroom also suppresses the bad water energy.
Mirrors are highly recommended for the bathroom as they speed up and circulate energy.
Energise the bathroom by letting sunlight and fresh air in with windows and skylights.
FRESHEN IT UP
Freshen up your bathroom with new towels. By giving attention to your daily comfort it creates an environmental affirmation that says you are worthy of enjoying comfort and beauty in your physical surroundings and you will start to draw that same energy to you.
