Colours in my Feng-Shui Garden

Colours in my Feng-Shui Garden With each season it is the entrance of the colors to the garden, a real fanfare of nuances. Colour is one of the main remedies in Feng-Shui, then comes the shape and then the material. This means that when one finds that an area lacks peps one uses colors to increase the vital energy of this area. So you are like a painter in front of his composition, the brush pointed towards your garden. You will work with a palette of shades from the most vivid to the most tenuous, but you will also combine the materials combining the shapes of the flowers and those of different foliages. And you will add materials in line with these choices.   My advice “Feng-Shui Colors » : The Feng-Shui chromatic circle is a valuable tool. It reveals and stages harmonies, contrasts, shades to paint… Some colours absorb light, others return it. It depends on what we want to create and where we want to colour it and where it’s going. You will not choose the same camels for your home entrance, for your roof terrace, your pool, your secret garden, or your balcony…   Create a color shade and a rainbow of feng-shui hues: The base of your garden : the green, health color with various shades depending on the area. Green leaves evoke freshness and return to nature. It is a luxurious setting for all other colors.   South, to increase your vital energy and reputation : Colors FIRE : Red, of course, exciting, warm, lively and tonic color. Scarlet red or deep red, reinforced by medium green or much darker. The roses: from the tender pink to the tyrian pink, from the candy pink to the fuschia pink, you will reach the purple pink and finish with purple. The shades are rich in themselves to bring you the happiness of color and its surprise in the garden. Like an old rose coming out of the undergrowth! Leafy side: add grey, bronzes,...

Your Own Garden full of Creativity

Why don’t you create your own garden full of creativity ?   Find your balance and be aligned with your path. You have to get back to work or studies soon, this is how to promote the development for a positive return to work or school year. Yesterday, when I was talking to a friend of mine, she told me that her son lives currently in Scotland and that he practice 3 lines of work : he’s a climbing instructor, a photograph and a musician. Then I asked her if he was happy and if he succeeded to thrive with these 3 different jobs. The answer was positive and my face lighten up when in the conservation I told her « you see some people have one line of work and are annoyed while doing it and your son has multiples, still he managed to find happiness ». This is exactly what the West sector of a garden is about, development of wellbeing on a daily basis and putting our wildest dreams while working on the garden. This West part of the garden is really active, it resonates with family spirit and East roots.   It is a creative garden, where the inner child can play. The vegetable garden is well placed there and you can create one to share, harvest, and give to those who need it the most like this new Belgian charity called FruitCollect or other movements like Colibri that we have in France but the idea is originally from England. It’s a garden open to the world’s consciousness. And we have a saying in France : he’s completely at West, which means he’s Crazy, open to everything. You can create it alone, with friends, family or people you just met, their opinions or thoughts are highly advised, they have to appreciate it, they are your guides. Each your idea according to your style : A garden with flower pots in all sorts, another of my friend in...

Feng-Shui Plants at my Home

 Why to install plants at the house, in its apartment and to the office ? What could be more natural than a plant?

(See 4)   2. Unlimited quantity or almost, we shall put so many plants as we want it by respecting a balance, to you to feel what goes to you; then we shall think of spraying, of feeding bio and of aerating 15 minutes minimum its inside every morning rather.

A Love Garden

May & love in the garden or a love garden   This is the month of flowers when the garden explodes from happiness of finding again the heat of the earth which goes in increasing. When visiting gardens to realize, there’s often the sad observation that the area reserved to the couple is disregarded or non-existent. So let’s get to work to create you a happy home for 2 and only 2 ! This is the area of the couple or the relationship to the other if you are single with the choice to welcome your opposite or not. There’s no need to mistreat this area if you want to stay alone and meditate on your future relationships but you have to coddle it anyway. A place for 2 : this is primarily a place to sit together even if the fashion is to install a bed in some gardens in the South which are more hot. I am more romantic and I would install a comfortable bench for 2 preferably in stone and with soft cushions. Warm colours combinations : cream, yellow, orange (not too much because it would cause too many changes) and red (all ranges from pink to fuschia passing by red garnet). A little square or octogonal table and some delights to eat and drink. A lot of candles. Some outer drapes, canopies or a little cottage. Some decoration items we like by 2, a couple symbolism or man-woman equilibrated. Favor terracotta materials, the fire element and the coulours set out above. Be creative, enjoy yourself. Avoid the mess, the number 3 and the presence of water unless it is sparkling water to drink together. But where is this idyllic place ? Follow the guide, when I fit out this area I do a cleaning or I add the opposite sector « knowledge ». If we know well ourselves, we know where we are going and with who ; it’s up to you to take...
