Indications of energy imbalance
An affirmative response to any of the following questions, could indicate a need for space healing in the area of creativity (The list of questions is representational and not exhaustive):
- Do you often wonder how can you bring some exuberance into your life?
- Does your inner child need to be nurtured and allowed a greater degree of expression?
- Do you yearn to make time in your life to play and have fun?
- Have you felt that your creativity has been stifled lately?
- Does it feel as if there is a blockage in your mind, which is not allowing inspiration?

Impact of the Leo sign on your house
To design a house that inspires your creative side, one needs to find the energy flow that resonates within you and this may vary from person to person. Nonetheless, here are some general suggestions that may help:
- Set up and design your creative zone near a window, as the ‘life force’ moves strongly in this area.
- Include shapes, designs and patterns, in the fabrics for curtains, cushions and beddings, as these exude vibrations and are mentally stimulating and impact your creativity.
- The creative area at home should overlook a broad horizon, as this will help you to think big.
- In Feng Shui, it is believed that the vertical flow of energy sparks creative thoughts. The top of a building exposes one to vertical vibrations of the space. A loft, hence, is a good area for designing a creative corner.
- Mirrors make an area appear larger and increase the flow of energy. Hence, it can be used, to create a lively and stimulating ambience.
- Certain sounds can make one feel more inspired and imaginative. So, it may be a good idea to keep a music system in one’s creative space.
Décor elements for healing vibrations
The imagery you have at home, is one of the most potent and powerful décor tools, to manipulate the energy of a space. If a positive image can heal energy imbalance and invite positive vibrations, then, the opposite is very likely, as well, with negative images. Always opt for imagery, such as pictures, paintings, sculptures or arrangements of objects that evoke positive thoughts and feelings in you. Some suggested images or symbols to invite positive vibrations, vis-à-vis creativity, into your home are:
The sign of Leo and the sun: The warm-hearted and energetic symbol of Leo, in tandem with the sun suggest a life enjoyed to the fullest.
Linked hearts: Traditionally associated with love and unconditional affection for pets and close friends, it represents allowing yourself to unite with another.
Musical notes: This is a reminder of creative pursuits – for example, playing or listening to music/musical instruments, discovering talents through hobbies, singing, dancing, writing, etc.
The cradle: Symbolises your inner child and the children in your life and reconnecting with innocence and being spontaneous.
The maypole: Represents coming together, to celebrate and participate in life.
The spinning top: Reminds you to be carefree and reconnect with your youthful energy.

Believe it or not
Suma Dhilla of Mumbai is an ardent believer in Feng Shui. She narrates: “A friend of mine was in a rush to sell his house, because he was moving abroad. However, he was not getting prospective buyers. I suggested that he put the details pertaining to the sale of his house in an aesthetic décor piece, in the west direction of his room. He said he did not believe in my ‘mumbo jumbo’ but his mother heeded my advice. Shortly thereafter, he was inundated with potential buyers. By choosing appropriate décor elements for the house, one can heal or empower the vibrations in the house, to attract new beginnings and inspire creativity.”
