The number 6 is about Love. Not the emotional, syrupy kind of love, but the love that has created all that we see around us. Can you imagine what kind of force there had to be to think up this world? Whatever you believe that to be, it’s an amazing thing. That kind of love is truly beyond our understanding.
In feng shui, love is the energy that can shift just about anything…that and gratitude, which is based on a feeling of love (appreciation) for having something. Love is the energy that is the basis for balance, for uplifting your spirit, for your ability to breathe. We take on relationships and “fall in love” with someone, and this feeling is a small aspect of the type of love that made it all possible in the first place. We long for loving relationships because it puts us in touch with that higher love.
The “love” area in your home/space is located in the back right, as seen from your front door. This is called the Relationship gua on the Bagua. Kitchens are located in many of the homes I’ve been in, or a family room. If your bedroom happens to be in this corner, great, but it rarely happens. The idea here is to have things that are in relationship to each other, as in two of something, or a matched pair. Putting these things in this area (in general) honors your intention to have love in your life.
The opposite of love is not hate, as so many people think. Hate is the absence or shadow of love. There is only love, and anything else is not love, simple as that. Every emotion we feel is based on either love or the absence of it, even though there really is never the absence of it, just as the sun always shines, even though we can’t always see it.
Love does make the world go ‘round – and it’s “good feng shui!”
