IT SMELLS GOOD AND FEELS GOOD
For the Feng Shui expert Astrid Izquierdo, from Integral Synchrony, it is highly recommended to put aromatic plants in the kitchen. Basil, mint, parsley, rosemary, chives, oregano, sage, lavender, coriander, thyme … In addition to beautifying and impregnating with rich fragrances, they transmit positive energy and their use will bring an extra dose of nutritional energy to each dish.
WHAT IS OUTSIDE IS INSIDE
Plants help protect against toxic and negative energies, also acting as a protective barrier against noise, heat, excessive light … That is why they are indispensable on balconies and windows: in addition to acting as a filter, they harmonize the external with the internal, María Fariña tells us. , of Energy Design, an expert in feng shui and energy cleanings.
LET THE ENERGY FLOW
Plants with pointed leaves are ideal for corners, dark areas, spaces between columns, or in those corners where there is no natural light. They help us to activate Chi or vital energy in these places where it tends to stagnate.
“Fat plants are highly recommended for their resistance, they need little care and they always look beautiful. Due to their qualities, according to Feng Shui, they activate the energy of abundance. Thorny cacti also belong to this group, but in this case, it is better to place them outdoors terrace, patio, or garden ”, explains Astrid Izquierdo.
Since plants are the great energy boosters, the nicer and leafier you have them, the better. Never keep plants in poor condition or dry since what they will return to you is dead energy.
BAD ENERGIES ARE LEFT OUT
María Fariña tells us that plants purify the air, inject vitality, increase the ability to concentrate and improve mood. A good tip is to put some plants in the hall of your house to act as an energy filter for everything that comes from outside.
THE SHAPE OF THE LEAVES
“Plants connect us directly with nature and with our genuine state of health and balance. Those with round, oval, or heart-shaped leaves are highly recommended for the interior of the house, such as ficus, pothos, lily of the peace (spathiphyllum), white butterfly, etc.
A PLACE TO RECHARGE BATTERIES
Do not place plants in areas that hinder the passage of the house, this would cause the energy to be confused too and not flow properly. Creating a corner like this near a window and taking advantage of the decorative trends that are filled with tropical leaves, is a very last idea.
LOVE IS IN THE AIR
Feng Shui tells us that flowering plants attract love. Whether you are alone or as a couple, you can enhance this feeling reigning in your home through small pots with a flower, such as lavender, which will also give you a good smell and a relaxing environment.
TROUBLE FREE ENVIRONMENTS
For Astrid there is no better way to achieve peace than through nature: “Plants are the great harmonizers, they balance the environment making the rooms more welcoming and relaxing. Being in contact with them helps to decrease the level of stress”.
GREEN IS LIFE
For Feng Shui, living energy is one of its pillars, generating, moving, and enhancing it, and the best way to achieve this is precisely through elements of nature. Say no to artificial plants or dried flowers, they are dead energy and what they promote is stagnation.
BREATHING CLEANER AIR
In our house, there are suspended particles that harm our health, such as radon, nitrogen dioxide, and even dust. Feng Shui advises ventilating our home daily first thing in the morning. There are indoor plants that can purify the environment, helping to keep our home healthier. In this choice, photos, ivy, and ficus are the best. It is the advice from My House Feng.
If it is about seeking harmony through the art of Feng Shui, one of the easiest and fastest ways to energize spaces is through plants. They are living elements, that breathe and fill us with vitality, and knowing where and how to place them, we can obtain many benefits for our physical and emotional health, not to mention how much it contributes aesthetically.
For Astrid, from Integral Synchrony, plants correspond to the Wood element: “The qualities of this element are adaptability, slow but constant growth as in nature and its associated values are health and balance. For this reason, in a house with good Feng Shui, there is never a lack of plants and flowers. In addition to beautifying plants, they purify the space since, thanks to the photosynthesis process, they release oxygen into the environment, providing fresh and vibrant energy. “
As for the cacti, much is said about whether or not they are advisable inside the house and Yasmina Rodríguez, from Mi Casa es Feng, prefers to put them in the windows and to be outside if they have spikes. Even though fatty plants (such as cacti) work in abundance, thorns are designed rather than protect us, and what better way than to place them outside so that our houses are safe from outside aggressions.
BEFORE PUTTING A PLANT
- Avoid dried flowers and artificial plastic plants, as they do not provide full energy and are related to dead energy.
- The bathroom is one of the most ‘conflicting’ areas of the house in terms of energy, so a plant can help you fill it with positive energy, although you may have to change it frequently.
- Do not use your living room as a cemetery of plants since it will lower the Chi of the room and may affect your quality of life.
- For fang SHU, plants with sharp blades are known as knife blades and it is not recommended locating them in areas of family coexistence since they tend to disperse energy, cut it, and encourage discussions.
