The energy balance pursued by Feng-Shui serves to harmonize the entire home. Children play a fundamental role in it and are represented by Wood, one of the five Chinese elements. With their own children's decoration for their rooms, places of play, study and rest, children will feel happier and safer in our home.
The ideas of Feng-Shui provide well-being, balance and harmony to children, but they do not intervene in the development of his personality. If you want to harmonize the energy of your home, here are some simple ideas, which are mainly designed for the children's room. The key is to keep in mind that your children need to move in a space that encourages them and makes them feel safe.
The decorative elements of furniture located on the bed slow down the energy of the person and are not recommended from the point of view of Feng-Shui. In addition, all parents know that children love to jump on the bed and especially to fall on it. When choosing a bed or designing a room for your children, it is necessary to take into account its acrobatics: robust beds, with rounded edges and neutral colors will make children feel more secure, calm and happy.
According to Feng-Shui, the heart of a house is located where the family meets daily to share their time. It can be located in the kitchen, in the dining room or in a living room. All members of the family must be represented in this space and children generally do it through drawings or things they make themselves. Therefore, you must reserve a place for them where they can express themselves without disturbance. A cork or a sector of the refrigerator (if the chosen place is the kitchen) perfectly fulfill this purpose. The presence of these elements contributes to an identification of children with space and to a strengthening of family ties.
The inhabitant of a modern city spends, on average, less than an hour a day outdoors. Our urban environment gradually separates us from contact with nature, which we need to maintain our balance. Children all the more need this contact, which they also love. No matter how little space is available in the house, the presence of plants, small animals or a fish tank are generators of invaluable experiences for children. Make them participate in the care of pets or plants because it contributes to the development of a healthy ecological conscience.
Use healthy and natural materials in the children's room. Avoid agglomerates, paints and synthetic varnishes. Solid woods, with natural finishes (waxes or linseed oil), natural fibers and water-based paints are recommended. Ventilate children's rooms daily to avoid the accumulation of harmful gases.
An ancient rule of Feng-Shui says that large windows in the house make unruly children. Children are very easily distracted. Watch the position of the place where they study: they should not remain seated in front of a very large window or with their backs to a door. Curtains and mirrors help correct these negative conditions.
Ideally, the study place should be separate from the place of play and rest. If this is not possible, a virtual separation must be provided that can be achieved, for example, by using a different color for the work corner: a very light sky blue can be perfect to give calm and concentration, but excessively reduces energy and can withholding the child's initiative to exert himself. Neutral colors such as off-white, linen, ivory, soft stone colors, and light browns are best suited to decorating children's rooms because they don't interfere with their energy. Chests or trunks to store and organize books and toys are essential for cleaning and organization, which the children's room needs, according to Feng-Shui.
Ideally, the nursery faces East, which is the direction of the Wood element and growth, and receives plenty of natural light. If not, we can use a bright yellow object (like a cute sun) to compensate for this. It is convenient that the children's room has at least two sources of artificial light: a more or less intense general light (avoid dichroic and fluorescent tubes) and a soft lighting for the evening hours. Nightstands or wall sconces with soft lamps are great for creating a calming environment that prepares children for sleep.
In ancient China there were, of course, no televisions, no computers, and therefore there are no Feng-Shui rules for locating these gadgets: we must create them. Television, because it generates light and movement, is a very Yang element and inevitably generates a Yin environment around it. This means that electrical and electronic devices keep children still (at least for a little while) and provide a few moments of calm, but they tend to dominate the space where they are. It is difficult to resist the temptation to turn a television off when it is in view: therefore, it is important to find a way to hide the television screen while it is not in use because we tend to forget about what is out of our sight.
