Love & Relationships
Aaaahh, the love corner, everybody’s favorite. Having your Relationships & Love corner enhanced creates harmony in all your relationships. This area is comfortable but grounded. It’s compassionate, balanced and accepting, like your mama’s arms giving you a gentle and knowing hug. This area should be a soft place to land.
The Relationships & Love corner is about romance, attracting the right partner and spicing up your love life—but it’s also about relating.
Take a look at your Relationships & Love corner; you may be surprised by what you see.
What signals are you sending yourself and others about your love life? Or about how you relate to other people? Does the space feel soft and inviting, or cold and abrasive? What’s decorating the table—lovely pink roses or a prickly cactus? How about the artwork—is it sending off love vibes, or something more troubling? Use your intuition to really see this space and how it is playing out in the current state of your love life.
This area is also directly related to the mother of the house. I can’t tell you how many consultations I’ve done with moms of young kids where the Relationships & Love area of the house is a total wreck or the most neglected. As moms, we generally put everyone else first and ourselves last. It’s just what happens. But, it doesn’t have to be that way, and it shouldn’t be that way. At least not ALL the time! When we neglect to take care of ourselves, everyone around us suffers too. It’s this simple: if Mama’s happy, EVERYBODY’S HAPPY. So, clean up your Relationships & Love area. Soften it, nurture it, take care of it, and those very things will be showered on you in return.
Any time you have an area missing from your home, there can be very serious implications that need to be addressed. (TIP: If any area of your home is missing, look in the enhancement and cures section to find solutions.) Having a void in your Relationships & Love area can be very painful. It can mean you haven’t been able to find the right partner and that loneliness is a big theme in your world. Or, if you are in a relationship, it might mean things are difficult and strained. There can be separation or divorce on the horizon, if it’s not already occurring. So make sure your Relationships & Love area is working for you!
No photos of lonely icebergs, or deserted islands, or prickly cacti, or harsh artwork, or solo photos of you or anyone. Just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
With your Love & Relationships area enhanced, you might notice that it’s easier for you to:
Balance giving and receiving
Deepen your existing relationships

Attract the best partner for you—someone who is your equal, your balance, the person who brings out the best in you

Discovering your space…
What is your subconscious trying to communicate through your living space?
While comfortably sitting in the Love & Relationships area of your home, take a long look around. Make the following observations:
What do you see? What room are you in?
How does the space FEEL? How do YOU feel in the space?
Is the space clean, kept and open? Or is it cluttered, dirty and closed?
What do you like about the space? What do you dislike about the space?
Does the space reflect a strong connection to the LOVE relationships in your life?
Does the space reflect the kind of love you allow yourself to receive?
Take a minute to just to sit and be quiet, look and listen, what is the space trying to tell you? What have you been afraid to notice? Write about your observations.

Enhancements for the Love & Relationships area
Power Words: LOVE, RECEPTIVITY, COMFORT, SOFTNESS, INTIMACY, EQUALITY & PARTNER
Colors: Pink is the color of love. Red is the color of passion. Be careful with the red though—just a splash goes along way.
Fire: Pink or red candles (choose a color and use 2 candles). Scented candles are nice, too. It’s great to light the fire of romance, but be careful not to introduce too much fire, or you may burn out your relationship too quickly. Too much fire can also stir up too much passion and cause arguments. Use your intuition to find the balance.
Light: Lamps are a great way to illuminate your love life and energize the space.
Fabric: Think soft, silky and welcoming. This is a great place for throw pillows that create a soft place to land.
Symbols that mean love to you: Hearts, poems, objects of love
Pairs: Duality and pairs is the name of the love game. So, think: 2 candles, 2 picture frames, 2 plants. Photos of you with loved ones. Artwork featuring pairs: 2 flowers, 2 trees, 2 birds.
Plants: Healthy plants, especially flowering pink plants, are perfect for this area.
Artwork: Paintings or photos with 2 people, not 1 or 3. Only artwork that is giving off a loving, healthy vibe—nothing dark, stormy or lonely. Statues of people in love are great.
Keepsakes: Love notes or gifts from your current relationship. Nothing from past relationships is allowed!
Earth Element: Having Earth elements in this area helps keep everyone grounded in their relationships.
Altar Space: Create an altar area on a table, dresser or windowsill that symbolizes anything to do with the love you hope to gain.
