One of the best and most effective methods of creating a sense of family togetherness is to hang a large family portrait in a place of honor in the living room or family room.
Every member of the family should be included in the portrait, and to symbolize happiness, every member should be smiling. Arrange the members of the family in a way that creates a shape most suitable to the element of the family patriarch.
If you choose this arrangement, make sure the bread winner OR family patriarch is placed at the apex of the triangle. This particular arrangement creates the element of fire, and it also signifies the precious yang energy. This arrangement is particularly excellent when the patriarch is born in a fire or earth year. I used this arrangement for our family portrait.
A Wavy Arrangement:
This arrangement creates the water element. It is a yin shape and would be great if there is excessive yang energy in the home. The patriarch or bread winner should be in the center, and the heads of the people in the picture are not level thereby creating a wavy shape. This is excellent when the patriarch was born in a water or wood year.
A Rectangular Arrangement:
This arrangement suggests the wood element, and is probably the most common. Here, all members pose in a way that has everyone's head level. The arrangement also suggests a regular and balanced shape. This arrangement is suitable where the Patriarch is born in a wood or fire year.
This is similar to the rectangle and is especially suited for small families. For instance, four in a picture makes a perfect square, a shape that suggests the earth element.
This arrangement is suitable for everyone since the earth element also signifies the family. It is especially excellent if the Patriarch was born in a metal year since earth produces metal in the cycle of the elements.
