Plants and Feng Shui

alternative-healing Feng Shui

The role of plants flowers and fruits in Feng Shui is very strong. A well-placed plant can change your family fortunes and harmonise your life. Read on.

The power of plants and flowers in your home 

  1. Plants are auspicious from the point of feng shui. It is always good to grow plants in the house, especially wooded plants. 
  2. Plants in the office also bring about increased luck in your career. Place plants in the east, south or south-east corners of your office for maximum luck. 
  3. If you are a married couple and want children, avoid putting flowers in the bedroom. Instead, place a basket of fruits in your bedroom. Fruits, especially pomegranates, are a symbol of fertility. 
  4. Don't place thorny plants inside your home. Thorny plants do form a protective shield, and could be placed outside the home. Don't place them too near the front door. They could be placed a little further away from the door, or in the balcony. 
  5. Don't place bonsai plants inside or outside the home. They represent stunted growth. 
  6. Trim your plants regularly. Overgrown plants promote bad energy. Similarly, trim trees in your garden regularly. Don't let them overwhelm your house. 
  7. Fresh flowers bring luck and fortune in your home. Place fresh flowers in your living room on a regular basis. However, once they die, throw them out. Don't leave dying flowers in your home. 
  8. Avoid placing dried flowers in your house. They are believed to bring misfortune. Artificial flowers are a far preferable option and are believed to bring luck. 
  9. Do not place any flowers, plants or any other auspicious feng shui symbol in the bathroom. The good luck will backfire and turn into bad luck. 
  10. Ever noticed lemons (nimbus) hanging on the entrances of shops? They are believed to ward off the evil eye, according to Hindu superstitious beliefs. Similarly, oranges and lemons are believed to be powerful symbols of fortune, and bring prosperity to the home. They should be placed at the entrance. 


General tips for enhancing prosperity

Before we continue, it is essential to get one thing clear. There is no substitute for hard work. "Genius is 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration." Few people have come across wealth and prosperity without putting in hard work. However, often even the most hardworking people may feel that no matter how much they struggle, they seem to be going nowhere, because of sheer bad luck. These are just a few tips to encourage lady luck to smile in your direction. 

  • The three-legged frog is considered to be a strong symbol of prosperity. Keep it anywhere in your living room. 
  • In your office, sit with your back to the wall or a closed cabinet Avoid sitting with your back to the window or an open bookshelf or you may become the victim of malice and betrayal. 
  • Place a painting or image of a mountain range on the wall behind you. 
  • Never sit with your back to the door.
  • Flowing water is always considered auspicious. If you have a fountain in your reception area, ensure that the water is flowing inwards, and not in the outward direction - or money will flow out instead of flowing in. 
  • If you live close to a swift river, prosperity just gets swept along with the current. It is best to live close to a meandering stream.

I hope it's okay to ask question here?

I just read the following advice on plants in the bedroom:

"You should also have some plants in order to achieve feng shui bedroom harmony, but they should always be live plants and not dried ones. The best area to place them is on the health area of your bedroom which is near the middle; this would help you with your health energy."

Source: http://www.fengshuicrazy.com/interior-design-tips/feng-shui-bedroom.php

The problem is that my bedroom is quite small so placing plants in the middle would mean placing them on top of my bed. That wouldn't do any good. Does anyone know if it would be all right to hang the plants from the ceiling?

Thanks

please clarify if you would for me, i am very confused about plants in a bathroom because no one seems to agree. some say it is the wood element and feeds fire - which balances out the water in the bathroom. others say as you do to keep plants out of the bathroom completely and some others say put bamboo because it grows straight up and so the wealth will not flow down the drain but be lifted up. so confused!!! what is the best advice?
