Candles are among the most powerful Feng Shui cures. Lighting a candle will uplift and expand the energy in any given space. If life seems dull and routine, light a candle. Warmth, passion and excitement will ensue -- it's just a matter of knowing where and when to implement a candle cure! Here are some tips on what kinds of candles to use and where to place them. When it comes to Feng Shui, strategy is everything!
Rekindle the passion
If the passion has gone out of a relationship, employ a candle cure. Place two red candles in the far right corner of your home, as well as your bedroom. Light these candles twice every day. Make sure to place the candles side by side, to ensure intimacy. If you like scented candles, choose a stimulating aroma like rose, ylang-ylang or jasmine.
Command the spotlight
Candles are also good for drawing favorable attention. If you've been overlooked or neglected, place nine red candles in the center portion of the far side of your home. Light the candles once daily, preferably during daylight hours.
Find your purpose
If you have a nonfunctional fireplace, it may be difficult for you to summon enthusiasm for life. By placing candles in the mouth of the fireplace, you could discover a sense of purpose. Light the candles at least once a week. Choose a color that's appropriate for the fireplace's location. For instance, if the fireplace is located on the entrance wall, choose blue candles. A fireplace that's on the left of the room will benefit from green candles. If your heart is on the far side of the room, choose red candles. And if your fireplace is on the right side of the room, choose white candles.
A room that is cold and depressing suffers from too much yin energy. Introduce some much-needed yang by grouping three green candles near the entrance. If you like scented candles, choose a fresh aroma like lavender, peppermint or bergamot.
Curb your enthusiasm
If you have a tendency to bite off more than you can chew, you have an excess of Wood Energy in your home. A good way to scale back your schedule is to implement a candle cure in the Family Gua of your home. Place nine red candles in the center portion of the left side of your home. Light the candles once each morning.
When life becomes dull and routine, you need inspiration. A candle cure can provide just that. Put eight blue candles in the near left corner of your home. Light the candles once a day, preferably during the evening hours. If you like scented candles, choose a comforting aroma, like frankincense, lemon or rosemary.
Improve your health
If you suffer from poor circulation, arthritis, bad eyes or dry skin, a candle cure can help. Place five yellow candles on the kitchen table and light them once a day. Chunky, square candles work best for this purpose.
Become more independent
Lit candles emit Fire Energy, which promotes self-sufficiency. If you rely too heavily on a parent, child, friend or lover, implement a candle cure. Place a single round candle near the entrance of your bathroom and light it once a day. If you like scented candles, choose a soothing aroma like geranium.
In the event a rigid authority figure is making your life miserable, try a candle cure. Place six tall white tapers in the near right corner. Light the candles once a day, preferably in the evening. As the candles burn down, you'll be given a greater measure of freedom.
Find your bliss
When life feels like all work and no play, you need to implement a candle cure. Place seven white circular candles in the center portion of the right side of your home. Light the candles once each day, preferably in the early evening. If you like scented candles, choose a clarifying scent like orange or lemon.
