Feng Shui and Art As I have written earlier, in feng shui we believe that the way in which we arrange our home environment has a powerful impact on our lives. The way we arrange our home in terms of color, furnishings, position of rooms, as well as how energy flows through the building can influence us in either negative or positive manner.
According to feng shui principles, one aspect of our home environment that has a powerful but often subtle and perhaps unnoticed impact is in the area of art.
We bring art into our home that attracts us and tells us something about, as well as reveals to others, who we are as well as reveals to others who we are. Every time we look at a particular piece of art, be it a painting, a sculpture, or even a film, we make a subconscious assessment as to whether or not it reflects who we are. What we select and are drawn in terms of art reveals invaluable information about ourselves.
The same is also true in terms of the art that we have in our home. According to feng shui, each time we gaze directly or indirectly at an artistic possession in our home, it anchors and triggers a specific thought connected either to the theme, content, or origin of the artwork.
For example, a homeowner had a beautiful bronze sculpture depicting the mythical character Atlas bent over and carrying the world on his shoulders. He proudly displayed the sculpture on a pedestal in his foyer to greet him as he returned every day from the office. Each afternoon when the man comes home from work, he gazes at his favorite piece of art. At the same time, he is feeling more and more drained and unhappy about his life. He is starting to feel overwhelmed with his responsibilities and obligations and is afraid he cannot hold up all that he needs to accomplish. In his feng shui consultation, one of the recommendations was to remove the sculpture and replace it with a piece of art that he found to be invigorating and inspiring. He soon reported to us that his entire attitude about himself and his career completely shifted for the better. Within a few months, his new improved attitude was noticed by his supervisor and he was promoted to a position that both gave him substantially more income and actually reduced his actual work load.
Take a look around your home. Look closely at the artwork that you have brought into your home. From a feng shui perspective, does your art reflect who you are today in a way that is nurturing and supportive, or does it take you back to a negative time on your life or does it send you a negative message about yourself that is holding you back? No matter how beautiful or expensive a piece of art is, if it holds you back and keeps you from reaching your fullest potential, how valuable is it to you?
