Day #116 (May’s Feng Shui Myth Bust)
MYTH – ‘All furniture must have round edges to be Feng Shui’
All furniture must have round edges?
Do you know how hard that would be?
The most ideally of ideal Feng Shui probably would recommend it, ideally… but NO this is not practical or necessary!
I’m putting my foot down on this.
Sharp corners in Feng Shui are called poison arrows because the energy that is ‘given off’ by the corners are sharp and can be harmful.
BUT…. a big BUT….
This type of energy only becomes harmful if you are spending long periods of time in very close proximity.
For e.g. You sit for long periods at your desk and have a corner of a shelf near your back or head – this may cause aching or headaches. Or sit into a corner for long periods of time.
But really just move the shelf of get out of that corner.
It is nice to have some furniture rounded or round, like your dining table or coffee table but finding a chest of drawers that is curved is a bit of a hard task AND those pesky little corners only really cause an issue if you are too close to them or in your way.
Placing plants in front of some of your corners is a nice way to soften the corners, but there is no need to go overboard!
I heard of one very famous Feng Shui Master placing plants on every corner in her house. Now I don’t know about you but if I did that you wouldn’t be able to move due to too many plants!
So everything in moderation and no, not every piece of furniture needs to be round or rounded.
Soften the ones that really protrude or cause an issue, with a plant, especially when you bump your knee on them and live happily side by side with your corners.
