Top Feng Shui Methods For Attracting Love & Improving Relationships
Other than food and water, love is definitely one of the most important things humans need. Of course, it's no surprise that improving our love life is one of the most popular applications of Feng Shui, which makes use of energy to help us improve our lives.
The easiest way to improve relationships is to use know the directions of your Yan Nian or Longevity sectors. Yan Nian is the direction where Yin and Yang Qi are in perfect balance, making it ideal for developing healthy social relationships. This sector helps bring positive energy into personal relationships, romantic endeavours, longevity, familial harmony and social connections. There are two ways to derive this sector/direction — Personal Gua, and House Gua Number.
Personal Gua Method
Here's how to get your Personal Gua number:
- Take the last two digits of your birth year and combine them, e.g 1994 – add 9 and 4. You’ll get 13.
- Since 13 is a double-digit number, add 3 and 1 to get a single-digit number, 4.
- If you’re male then subtract the single digit number (4) from 10; you’ll get 6.
- If you’re female then add 5 to the single digit number (4); you’ll get 9. If it so happens that after adding 5, you get a double-digit number, do what you did in step 2 to get a single-digit number.
Now you’ve got your personal single-digit Gua number.
How to apply
Match your Personal Gua number with Yan Nian direction according to Personal Gua table in the gallery above, and tap into the Qi in this direction. For instance, if you are facing relationship problems at work with colleagues or superiors, point your work desk to face this direction. If it is more family or personal relationships that you are having trouble with, align the direction of your bed so that your head is in the direction of Yan Nian.
House Gua Number Method
How to get your House Gua number
To use this method, you must first ascertain the facing direction of your house. This is easily done by using a regular compass and note the position of the house based on where your front door faces. Once you have obtained this direction, check against the House Gua Number tables in the gallery above to see which one of the eight types of houses in Eight Mansions feng shui corresponds with yours. If your house faces South, you have a Kan house. If it faces West, you have a Zhen house.
How to apply
To improve relationships, spend more time in the room or area where the Longevity sector lies in (you can read, work or just relax in it). It's best to clear the clutter and make sure this space is well-ventilated. Don't worry about ‘activating’ the Qi or placing special objects in this area as sometimes in Feng Shui, simply spending more time in a direction that's good for you can improve your energy (Qi) by leaps and bounds.
