Feng Shui Dining Tables

Feng Shui is the art of balancing and harmonizing your home in order to help you obtain what you want and deserve in your life. In this article we look at some of the common problems people experience with dining tables and how these problems can be overcome.

The optimum shapes for a dining table are octagonal, circular or oval as this means that everyone at the table can both see and talk to each other. However not all tables are this shape, and to be honest this is often not the most practical shape for your dining area. Does this mean then that if you have a dining table that is not this shape you have to go right out and buy a brand new one?

The good news is that no you don't, although I know of several people who have used this as a handy excuse to treat themselves to a brand new dining room set. There are several ways in which you can enhance or cure a dining table to ensure it promotes positive energy, and as with all cures or enhancements the one you choose will be the one that most appeals to you. The most common problems with tables and the ways in which they can be overcome are highlighted below.

A square or rectangular table

If you have a square or rectangular table, to ensure everyone at the table can see each other clearly make sure the room is well lit and place mirrors on the walls. One of the unfortunate side effects of having a square or rectangular table is that the sharp corners create poison arrows which create negative energy. To minimize the disruptive effects of these, disguise them by placing a long, thick, highly patterned and decorative cloth over the table so that it touches the floor. Ensure that the areas of the room that the corners are pointing at are well lit with lamps. Enhance the room with natural plants and flowers as these will also help to counteract any negative energy.

A dining table that is too small

If your dining table is too small for you and your friends and family to sit comfortably at, this can make people feel cramped and cause conflict. In some cases it can also cause digestive problems as people rush to finish their meals so that they can leave the table. To cure this problem you will need to increase the surface area of the table by placing a large circular piece of wood, chipboard or plastic on the top of the table when it is in use. This can be covered with a cloth to make a decorative, comfortable eating area and can be easily stored away when not in use.

A dining table that is too large

If there are only a few of you eating it can be quite daunting and relatively uncomfortable if you are seated at a large table. A simple cure for this is to set just one area of the table and create a decorative display at the other side. When creating a decorative display it is always best to represent the bagua area that the dining room or dining area is situated in. If for example the dining room is in the relationship area of the house, then an attractive display of pink and cream roses in a crystal vase, pretty pink stones and crystals scattered across the table and candles in pairs at either side of the flowers can make a stunning visual display.

A glass table

A glass table causes energy to move very fast over the surface. To slow the energy down consider covering the table with a cloth. If you have bought a glass table because you like the design and do not want to hide it, place a large table decoration in the middle of the table top. The best decoration is one that utilizes wood or water or both, as this will help to bring about a calming effect.
