Feng Shui Your Website

Feng Shui your website: "Feng Shui your website
Posted online: Sunday, July 03, 2005 at 0116 hours IST

Ever since the internet went worldwide in 1993, communication has just progressed by leaps and bounds. Following that, businesses of all sorts have decided to take the path of the information superhighway. After all, going online meant that you could reach people who were living halfway around the world just as easily as if they were next to you. Everything being constantly in flux, even the application of Feng Shui principles has taken on a very contemporary appeal. Here, we offer some tips on website Feng Shui, which you can combine with your own innovative ideas for a modern yet auspicious website design.

Similar to masthead designs in newspapers and magazines, the top of your webpage should have a prominent display of your company name, company logo and nature of business. When designing your company logo please keep in mind that rounded and curved shapes are preferred over sharp and angular ones. Avoid incorporating inauspicious elements in your logo design because these harbor negative energy. In any case, if your company logo happens to be angular and you cannot change it, then make sure that none of the Poison Arrows are directed at your company name or even your product name. For an idea on what auspicious colours or shapes to use, apply the 5 element analysis to the nature of your business. First, check the table below for the dominant elements symbolized by your business. Then, refer to the appropriate colors and shapes for your design.

But there is one very important point I have to stress on. Don’t get so carried away with the idea of applying Feng Shui to your web design that you end up having an entire Pa-Kua on your website. (Caution: Do not put a Pa-Kua on your website. It is a very potent symbol used for protection. Hence, it is normally displayed to deflect Shar Chi. If it is incorrectly used, its power to repel may put off many of your would-be users).

Lastly, try to aim for a well-balanced design for your website. When the yin and yang energies are in harmony, then the inflow of good luck is smooth and unobstructed."

Sleep Better! Feng Shui Your Bedroom

Article Search Engine: GoArticles.com: "Follow these feng shui tips and sleep better by Jakob Jelling

If you are having problems at the time of falling asleep or you simply wish to improve your sleeping, you should follow the feng shui tips we will detail in the next lines and let this ancient Chinese wisdom help you. It is very important that we pay attention to our sleep due to the fact that it affects all the activities we do during the day as well as it has a direct impact on our health.

First of all, it is very important to avoid sleeping with the head towards the door. According to feng shui, the proper position in which to have the bed and to sleep is in such a place that allows us to see the door but without being right across from it. This way, you should always avoid sleeping with your feet right in front of the entrance.

It is also highly recommendable to avoid sleeping under a window. Sleeping right under a window would have a bad impact on your chi as well as it might cause you to loose some of your positive energy by dispersing it. Also, if your bed is right under the window, any bad chi which could enter into the room through it would go directly to you and therefore affect you. If you can't avoid sleeping under a window, then you should hang a curtain which doesn't allow bad chi to enter.

According to feng shui guidelines, it is also recommendable to avoid having pictures of water in the bedroom. Keeping pictures of water in the bedroom can cause insomnia as well as attract bad luck to those who sleep into the room. Therefore, if you do have a picture of water in your bedroom you should remove it or at least make sure it is as far from the bed as possible.

It is very important to make sure that there isn't any poisoning arrow pointing towards the bed. In order to find out if there are poisoning arrows, you should check for any edgy element or corner which might point towards the place where you sleep. If you find any and you can't get rid of it, you can neutralize its bad effect by covering it or by placing a plant in front of it.

Need a little TLC? Find love with Feng Shui

I've been getting a lot of requests over the last day for some attention on fortune, love, and bedroom decorating so I've endevored to find some great articles for you...

Article Search Engine: GoArticles.com: "Feng Shui to Attract Love by Sam Stevens

Not having much luck in love lately? Relationship falling apart? Maybe its those upside down dried flowers in you have hanging in your hallway, (oh so chic in Martha Stewart Land but the kiss of the death in Feng Shui circles.) Or maybe its the antique full length mirror in your bedroom ...

Feng Shui (pronounced Feng Shway) is the ancient Chinese art of rearranging design elements so that they harmonize with your enviroment. Several systems are used to determine what should go where to enhance the love life, but the one that applies to anyone reading this is the Pa Kua system. In Pa Kua, the southwest corner is the love sector of your home.

First of all get a compass, and find out what exactly is in the Southwest corner of your building. Is there a bedroom there? Good. A toilet there? Bad. It means your romantic prospects are getting flushed away. Is your Southwest corner a badly lit storeroom full of clutter? Also bad. It means your love-life will be as messy as well. In fact, no matter what room that corner is located in, it now becomes your job to enhance it as best as you can, by getting rid of clutter and using decor. You are also going to rehaul the southwest corner of your bedroom to double your chances of attracting romance.

What's in southwest corner of your bedroom? A closet? Bad. A vase full of beautiful flowers? Good. That will greatly enhance your chances of attracting a suitable partner.

To attract a partner, Feng Shui experts recommend putting a painting of peonies, or a vase of the flowers there. You could substitute any flower for the peony (as long as its not prickly like a cactus), but whatever you do make sure the flowers are fresh. The Chinese hate dead or dried flowers and would prefer that you have those rather than any kind of decay in a spot
that signifies your love life. Also lucky for romance, is a pair of wooden ducks or a painting of two ducks (as ducks mate for life) If you don't like how formal these ducks look, you can always do what I did and put two rubber ducks in your southwest corner.

Mirrors on the ceiling, especially full-lenght ones, or mirrors on the walls in the bedroom are a big no no, as they symbolize portals through which an interfering third party's energy can enter...Feng Shui masters don't like to invite voyeurism.

If you don't like Chinese decor, you could use my favourite westernized Feng Shui tool -- the Lava Lamp. Pink glowing goo moving up and down in your romance corner is sure to send out a sensuous vibe. Pictures or statues of loving couples or love friendly Goddesses such as Venus and Aphrodite would also help activate the love sector. As the southwest corner is symbolized by the earth element, it is also helpful to place crystals there, with the most suitable choice being rose quartz. If you want to go all out, you might want to also consider painting that corner or adjacent walls a bright red, also to symbolize passion. Whatever you do, don't go overboard...you could end up with a bedroom that looks like a Chinese brothel, or worse yet, invite somebody over who is familiar with Feng Shui who might go ³Hmmmm...I see ducks, flowers, crystals, red walls ...I better get out of here! This person is just a tad too desperate for me!
