Auspicious flowers in feng shui

July 03, 2019

 

 

In an earlier article, we shared how having especially suggested plants that are well-cared for can enhance good fortune. Another very powerful way to improve the feng shui of your home and office is through the use of flowers. Their vibrant colors and sweet smell help improve one’s mood. Flowers aren’t just lovely to look at, they are also regarded as symbols of good fortune as they bring auspicious energy into the surroundings.

Among the many types of flowers available, the following seem to be popular choices because of their positive luck indications in feng shui. 

Peonies have long been used in feng shui to attract love and romance. These elegant pink blooms symbolize feminine beauty. A large vase filled with peonies when placed on an entryway is believed to draw loving energies into your home. Singles who wish to marry should display a vase of peonies or a painting of the blossoms in the living room. Some feng shui masters, however, warn against using them inside older couple’s bedroom as the amorous energy could attract unwanted affairs with younger women.

 

Lotus flowers represent grace and stability. In Buddhism, the lotus is regarded as the flower of enlightenment because it rises and blooms despite the murky water. Every part of the lotus is believed to have medical benefits; thus, in feng shui, it is considered as the ideal symbol of health and physical strength, as well as unending success and abundance. Display them in a vase or as a painting or to inspire your life and home.

 

The Orchid is long considered a popular feng shui symbol for many positive things. When placed in the living room, orchids, especially the purple ones, are believed to enhance wealth, family luck and harmony, opportunity and success. White orchids are believed to attract helpful people into your life. Place pink orchids in the love area of the bedroom if you are looking for a love partner. Use them in your quest for perfection in many areas of your life.

 

Cherry blossoms are used to bring the energy of new beginnings, a sense of freshness and renewal. They are often used as a love and marriage cure, but can also be used as a feng shui cure for health. Having them at the start of the Chinese New Year simulates Spring, and therefore indicates fulfillment of wishes for prosperity and success throughout the year.

 

Chrysanthemums represent autumn and are a symbol of longevity. They are considered to be sources of balance and provide physical and mental strength along with vibrant energy to human beings. When placed inside the home, they contribute largely to the beauty of the interiors while bringing good luck and domestic happiness to families. Use them to attract yang energy and abundance as well as a life of ease and balance.

 

Narcissus flowers are used in Chinese culture to bring about career growth and rewards. The white-colored narcissus is considered to be more effective than the yellow-colored ones for this purpose. The flower can bring a lot of prosperity and rewards in people’s lives with proper and regular placement in the homes as well as offices. It has a structured form that is believed to mirror the blossoming of one’s skills and talents that could help him reap due rewards for his hard work.

Whatever flowers you choose, imagine them smiling at you and smile back. Keep that happy feeling and radiate the positivity to those around you. Just remember though, that when they dry out or wilt, they represent dead or stagnant energy. Dispose of them properly after they have served their mood-uplifting purpose.
