Ways to Introduce the Positive Aspects of Feng Shui to Your Yard

Add feng shui design to the layout of your yard so it can bring energy into your home.

Do not worry if your garden is considered too little for feng shui design, as size is is not especially relevant. It is terrific to have a huge space to work with, but do not worry if the area is small since you can still introduce feng shui design.

The principal feng shui tools can be utilized for your interior decor as well as your garden design. Your yard's bagua, or energy map, is an off-shoot of your home’s bagua, so it is essential to figure out your home’s first. 6051_3603__72104.jpg

Before getting underway, make sure you understand the five elements of feng shui so that you can make the most of their energy.

The northeast corner of your garden, for instance, connects to personal growth and self-cultivation energy, and Earth is the feng shui element that is important to use it. A perfect addition to the northeast corner of your yard might be a peaceful Zen garden decorated with natural stone, as they represent the Earth element in feng shui.

Consider incorporating a water feature into these feng shui areas: East (health & family), North (career & path in life), or Southeast (money and abundance).

The Wondrous Santa Maria in Cosmedin Water Fountain in Rome

Both Christian and pagan artifacts have been found in large quantities by archaeologists and restorers scouring the area of the Santa Maria in Cosmedin in Rome. The Bocca della Verità (Mouth of Truth} is a famed marble sculpture situated at the entrance of the nearby basilica. The location of the Santa Maria in Cosmedin fountain (1719) was not in a well-known area and was, therefore, not frequently visited. For the most part, people stayed away from the area because it was a sad and desolate part of the city. As part of a project to modernize the piazza outside the church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin, the Italian architect Carlo Bizzaccheri was instructed by Pope Clement XI to design a fountain. August 11, 1717 marked the date when construction on the church’s infrastructure started. The first stone to be placed in the foundation was blessed and medals bearing the illustrations of the Blessed Virgin, for whom the church is named, and St. John the Baptist, the patron saint of water, were also tossed in.
