The entrance of the bagua is typically a door that opens into a home through one of three areas: Wisdom and Knowledge, Career and Lifepath, or Helpful People and Travel.
Each is represented by distinct colors. For example, red represents the fire element, yellow represents earth, white represents metal, black or dark blue represents water, and green represents wood.
When practicing feng shui for love and pleasure, it is important to energize all areas of your environment. The ultimate goal is healing, wholeness, and balance in all areas of life. However, to magnetize a new love, deeper love, self-love, and more pleasure, you will want to focus on the area that represents love and partnership.
Activate Your Love Corner
You will find the “love gua” or “love corner” in the far-right corner of your home. In her form classes, Collins teaches that the north and south poles are reversed, with north at the entrance of a home and south at the back of a home. So the love gua can also be found in the southwest corner of your home (and in the southwest corner of every room in the house).
You can use that area to honor yourself, your current relationship, or the soulmate you wish to invite in. To fully honor your goals for love and pleasure, it is important to remove anything that is not love and pleasure. This includes sensuality blockers like clutter, garbage buckets, or art that does not represent your desired result.
This area is represented by the colors pink, in all hues, and white, but you can also use a splash of red for passion. The elements represented are earth and fire, so sexy ceramic statues or candles can be used to invoke sensual love. A favorite shape here is hearts, but make sure you always include two hearts (and two of everything).
Crystals are used as a feng shui enhancement. In the love corner, you can hang two crystals from the ceiling to stimulate the energy of love and chi for two. Everything in this area should be selected and placed with the sacred intention of magnetizing your desires. It is important to use items you can relate to and that warm your heart and your sensual soul.
Feng Shui Pleasure and Love Enhancers
Here are some ideas to get you thinking about what you want in your love corner. The more you activate all your senses, the better!
- Select artwork that reflects the love you desire. Select sexy, romantic, meaningful images and photos of a few couples you relate to. These should be new, unless you want to add the image of ancestors who had the relationship you truly admire.
- Purchase a brand-new ceramic statue of a romantic couple to stimulate the energy of long-term commitment.
- Nestle a pair of rose quartz hearts into beautiful pink satin or lace on a shelf or hang from the corner ceiling.
- Fill one beautiful vase with two red roses or pink flowers—fresh or silk is fine.
- For an existing relationship, pep things up by adding an altar that celebrates your love with images that remind you of all the pleasure you have shared.
In the end, designing your living space according to feng shui is about self-care, self-love, and knowing you deserve to have beauty and joy in your life.
Terah Kathryn Collins, who has helped thousands of people change their lives through feng shui, calls it an “internal love affair” that can help you also give loving attention to your lifestyle and environment, making your home the vehicle for attracting good things.
