The good old Feng Shui is all about the right (read beneficial) placement of objects in your surroundings, be they material things or living ones.
Yet, some elements are more powerful than others of the same kind as they will improve the energy, no matter how you use them. Notably, plants are vital elements in your immediate space that represent pure life essence and renewability, let alone that they purify the air you breathe daily.
Just like there is a myriad of colorful and dappled plants everywhere around us, there is also a myriad of people who are confidently apt at interpreting their meaning in a human life.
All the way from China, we get these 9 very special plants that can help enrich your lives in more than one way:
The pine tree is another ubiquitous symbol of the Feng Shui gardens. It represents longevity, resilience, integrity, and dignity. It can be placed wherever you need to remember “the great picture.” So, it is always appreciated near the front door where it will remind you of the stellar attributes you can acquire daily.
This is one of the first plants that most people think of when setting up a Feng Shui garden. Why is it so? Well, the popularity of this tree is due to its symbolism of wisdom, fidelity, flexibility, and cooperation. It can be used anywhere since these qualities are highly desired, or anywhere where there is a special need of lifting the chi. So, the way the bamboo grows is particularly matching this purpose!
Only a few flowers are more cherished than the lotus one. Actually, the lotus tree is a mythological plant! Beside its delightful shape and fragrance, it has a spiritual significance as the Buddha followers see it as a symbol of enlightenment, which we all can achieve in our lives through our arduous work and good hearts. It also symbolizes perfection, purity and integrity.
These are the national flowers of China. They represent kismet, aristocracy, decency, and wealth, so they are particularly favored for wealthy social standing and career pursuits.
These represent brotherhood, charm, friendship, and particularly the return of spring season. These trees signal the end of darkness, and are heralds of brand new beginnings.
6. Pomegranate Trees
Because of their many pinkish seeds, they are representatives of fertility and wellness. One woman who was considered childless attributes her 2 children to the garden layout that included these trees as well!
7. Orange Trees
Indeed, most citrus, have a deep connection with wealth, abundance, and most of all, an excellent health. So apart from completing your Feng Shui garden puzzle, you will also have a basket of very healthy fruits with freshness that simply opiates the senses.
These colorful flowers represent culture, nobility, and graciousness, which are the qualities of a gentleman and a lady. They support all these rare and longed-for qualities in a companionship.
The daylily is a figure of maternal love and fertility. In China, it is a symbol of filial devotion, so it can be used anywhere the mother love [or that type of support] is desired that is not-felt.
To sum up, all the Feng Shui plants have so much to teach us and using ones that have special significance and place reminds us every day of the particular human potential to expanding love, joy, health, and richness.
