Feng Shui and Sea Shells 
The beautiful seashell has it¢s place in Feng Shui. Feng Shui is the Chinese art of creating a harmonious environment. It is the idea that the space we live in has an effect on us; emotionally, physically, even spiritually. In Feng Shui we use symbols of what we desire (happy relationships, prosperity, good health, happiness, etc.) to attract that energy into our lives. Basically if we live in a place that makes us feel good then life will be better. And this is where seashells come in.

In Feng Shui seashells represent a comfortable home and a feeling of contentment. They often invoke memories of childhood days at the beach. But more than that they represent the beautiful tropical paradise of our dreams where there is no stress, no worries, and lots of sunshine. Shells also represent protection, like a shield. They are a barrier between the home and the outside world.

There are so many types of shells. In Feng Shui the most important shells would be the ones that cause happy memories, but store bought shells are great too. In Feng Shui we consider smooth shells versus spiny shells, as each has it¢s own meaning. Smooth shells are more the energy of comfort, home and family. While spiny shells project more protection energy. All shells in Feng Shui, represent the water element. So like water, shells are a symbol of good communication, positive relationships and even prosperity.

Feng Shui is very much about the placement of objects. Even something beautiful in the wrong place will not bring harmony or good feelings. A basket of shells placed where the dog can get into them (and start chewing on them) would be an example of bad placement. But there are many great places for shells. Here are a few ideas.

Spiny Shells on a window sill would call the energy of protection. It would be a safeguard symbol for the house.

Smooth Shells in the kitchen would promote the energy of harmony, family and fun.

A basket of shells on a table by the front door represents a stable and prosperous career.

A picture frame decorated with shells symbolizes good communication with that person.

A water fountain represents money flowing into the house, add some shells so the money is protected and retained.

Seashells in the guest bathroom brings harmonious energy to visitors.

And finally, my favorite thing to do is to leave a few shells in my front garden for the neighborhood kids to find. We all have fun talking about the shells they discover.
