Feng shui is used to invite positive energy into nearly every part of a person’s life. Your home is divided into eight areas that form the Bagua, or feng shui energy map of the space. And each Bagua area is connected with a certain aspect of your life, including your health and relationships. When you strengthen the feng shui energy in specific areas and your home overall, you can bring favorable changes to your life. For instance, if you are trying to conceive, there are some feng shui fertility tips for your space that might help.
Strengthen Your Love and Marriage Bagua Area
One of the first places to look is what’s known as the love and marriage Bagua area. This is the southwest corner of your space, according to classical feng shui. Or for those who practice BTB/Western feng shui, it’s the upper righthand corner if you were to divide your floor plan into a grid of nine squares (or rectangles), with the bottom row being at your front door. Inviting good feng shui energy into this area can bring love and harmony to relationships.
One feng shui remedy to strengthen this area’s energy is to display pairs of items, such as two candlesticks, which are symbolic of your relationship. You can also decorate with items representing the earth element, whose energy associates with this Bagua area. Colors linked to the earth element are light yellows and sandy tones. Choosing those colors for wall paint and decor can strengthen the earth element’s energy, which in turn can bring balanced energy to space.
Strengthen Your Children and Creativity Bagua Area
What’s referred to as your children and Creativity Bagua area is another spot to employ some feng shui remedies. This is the western part of your space, according to classical feng shui. Or it’s the middle-right area if you’re using the BTB Bagua map. Improving the energy of this area can support your creative endeavors and benefit any children (or future children) in your life.
The feng shui element associated with the children and creativity area is metal, and its colors are white and gray. Thus, much of the decor in this area ideally from those colors and have a metal component. Some other tips to bring quality energy to this area include displaying photos of any children in your life in happy moments or hanging artwork you find highly creative.
Create a Good Feng Shui Bedroom
A good feng shui bedroom is another factor that affect fertility. To feng shui, your bed, make sure it is in the command position. The bed needs to face the door but not directly in line with it. Opt for a solid headboard—either wooden or upholstered—instead of a metal headboard or one with lots of spaces. And keep your bed elevated off the ground with nothing (not even drawers built into a bed frame) stored underneath it. This is to allow energy to circulate freely. Moreover, one interesting traditional feng shui remedy for fertility is to allow children to have fun jumping on a couple’s bed. This is to bring good energy to it.
Feng shui principles warn against a bulky light fixture or a ceiling fan over your bed. This can create heavy or sharp energy that can harm personal energy. Also, remove clutter and electronics from the bedroom, which can be a drain on your energy. Ensure there’s space on either side of the bed and set up two nightstands for balance in the relationship.
Display Certain Symbolic Items
To attract the energy of fertility, there are certain symbols you can display. They include:
- Elephants: Statues or images of elephants with their trunks down are a popular fertility remedy. A pair of elephants is said to strengthen a relationship.
- Pomegranates: Pomegranate fruits, with their many seeds, symbolize fertility and good luck.
- Houseplants: A healthy plant can symbolize growth and new life in your home.
- Bamboo: A single piece of hollow bamboo placed in the bedroom is said to increase fertility.
- Dragons and red lanterns: A small dragon statue placed next to the man’s side of the bed or red paper lanterns hung on either side of the bed are both supposed to bring energy to increase fertility.
It’s important to note that unless you find personal meaning in these symbols. It’s not likely they’ll have much effect on your individual energy. The goal with any of these remedies is to create a home to which you connect.
