Plants used as Feng Shui enhancers
Plants are a remarkable feng shui remedy. They bring natural living chi into your home, which improves the vitality of your space. They are very effective in fighting against rising levels of air, noise and electromagnetic pollution.
Plants generally represent the element wood. However, depending on the shape of the plant they sub-divide into the other elements, for example, if a plant is very pointed it will relate more to the element ‘fire’ etc.
When placed in the correct position plants activate luck, good health, career and wealth energy. They can also be placed as a remedy in front of sharp angles and corners to help protect you from harmful chi.
Round leaved healthy green plants are auspicious for any location in the home. However, below are listed the ideal plants I use as feng shui enhancers for each room in your home.
- Entrance – Place two bay trees plants on either side of your front door to attract opportunities to enter your home.
- Hall – Place an amaryllis or any other flowering plant in the hall ideally in the southeast, east or south corner to activate your wealth and power energy.
- Living Room – Place a money plant in the corner diagonally opposite your living room door to activate wealth & career.
- Dining Room – Place some live bamboo in a vase in the corner diagonally opposite the dining room door to activate good health.
- Kitchen – Place some green herbs in the kitchen e.g. coriander, basil, mint, oregano, thyme etc, ideally in the east or southeast position of your kitchen to activate good health.
- Home Office – Place a peace lily plant beside your computer to remove toxins and soak in electrical pollution.
- Bedroom – Place an orchid plant in the corner diagonally opposite your bedroom door, this is the health position. Orchids are perfect for the bedroom since they produce even more oxygen at night.
- Bathroom – Place a fern or palm plant in the bathroom to absorb excessive water chi to encourage money not to drain away too fast
