The Wood Element And Feng Shui

The Power Of The Wood Element

The wood element is one of the five elements in feng shui that can easily be found all over the house. It is said to have the energy of a live and healthy tree. It is more of a yang which means it is masculine and active and has less yin or the receptive and feminine.

 

 

The wood element is associated with the spring season and new life or beginnings. This element has the combined qualities of flexibility and strength.

The colours that best represent the wood element are green and brown. These strengthen the qualities of the wood element.

The energy of this element are the energies of unlimited growth, vision, abundance, survival and steadiness.

The shape of the wood element is the rectangle or tall and vertical. Strong Vertical things represent the element.

The bagua areas for the wood element are the east, southeast and south. The north, centre, northwest and southwest areas of your home should be well taken care of as these areas do not like this element.

To bring in the wood element in your home, you can use healthy plants, images of forests, and wooden furniture.

In the productive cycle, the water strengthens the wood element and the wood element strengthens the fire element. Adding the water element allows you to have more wood energy while adding wood strengthens the fire element.

In the destructive side, the wood element weakens the earth and the metal element weakens the wood. Adding the metal can weaken the wood in your space and adding wood lessens the earth element.

Creating balance in your home means using the 5 elements evenly. Too much wood hampers your ability to make decisions or develop ideas while too little wood element can give you a feeling of being stuck in a rut.

The earth element is one of the five elements in feng shui. It brings protection, stability, and security to your home. Among the five elements in feng shui, the earth element is the most grounding. It increases comfort and supports peace, calm and stillness.

 

The shape that represents this element is square which happens to be the most stable and grounded of all shapes. The rectangular shape, horizontal lines, and flat surfaces also evoke this element too.

The colour that best represents the earth element is yellow along with the other earth tones like the light brown.

The earth element is associated with your physical health and the state of your home.  It helps you address the clutter and the weight-gain in your life.

In the creative cycle, it is nourished by fire and in turn, nourished the metal element. It solidifies the precious metals. While in the controlling cycle, it is being controlled by the wood element.

The element of the earth is represented in the three areas of the bagua map. The three areas are the relationship which can be found on the upper right,  the health area which is at the center and the knowledge which is located in the lower left of the bagua.

There are many ways to bring the earth element into your home. You can use natural crystals, stones, and even potted plants. Ceramics, bricks, and pottery are good earth element materials for your home.

Remember that a balanced home requires not just the proper placement of things but also the presence of all the five elements.

Your Environment And The Road To Success

POSTED BY Cathi Hargaden July 18, 2018 IN abundance, clutter, educational, energy, environments, feng shui, health, home, wealth | No Comments
The One Thing Only 1% Of People Do

In this video, we hear some of the most successful people say one thing! #ENVIRONMENT!

That is one of the most controlling influences in people’s lives. It is not just about the buildings, the nature around you but the people around you. They can shrink or expand your vision with their attitudes, aspirations and expectations.

Now we are hearing some of their biggest speakers in the #personal #development world reiterate the #Power of the #Environment. What is saying to you and how can you ensure it is influencing you in the best way possible.

Most people have no idea of the concept of #discipline in the environment. They continue sluggishly get by in the disarray that is always around them and then wonder why they have made no progress. How many times have I reminded people year after year what they need to do to get clarity and each year I return they live in the same environment confusion despite having someone there to support them. Often people do not move until trauma or pain shifts them to do so.

Go to my website www.wealthyspaces.com or #instagram account on fengshui4you where there are lots of ideas whether business, at home or work where you can make the changes to your environment so they are inspiring you to be the best you can BE.

Recently, I saw an interview talking about vision boards but the reality is that your whole home or business is one big vision board. You have to create around you the very essence of what it is you want to feel, see in your life. This is what success is all about.

One of the first things you can start to do get some clarity in your life is to get rid of your clutter.

Then Cleanse your space like the ancient peoples did centuries ago because they understood the power of the invisibility of energetic patterns in our dwellings.

Start creating a space that carries the very idea and essence of what you would like for yourself in your life. Improved health, travel to foreign places, kids all around you and ensure your environment holds these images for you in a positive way.

If you don’t #Discipline your space, it will #control you.

I do consultations, talks, lectures all over the world and you can contact me on www.wealthyspaces.com

 

 

The Metal Element In Feng Shui

The Power Of The Metal Element

The metal element is one of the five elements in feng shui. The right placement of metal in the room can improve the flow of good energy.

 

The metal element is yin in nature. It signifies the energy moving inward. It represents intelligence, life, and energy. It also represents success and it brings power. The metal element focuses on logic and mental clarity.

The earth element strengthens the metal element and in turn, strengthens the water element. So you can use it to strengthen the water element in your home.

However, one negative aspect of the metal element is that it weakens the wood element. So to create balance, just add a small touch of the fire element to minimize its impact.

The metal colours are white, silver and gold. Its shapes are circle, oval or crescent. It is considered the purest shape since its line never end.

The best things to use to decorate your home with the metal element are coins, bells, metal objects such as iron, aluminium silver, steel, and gold. Pictures of coins can also be used as decorations.

You can also use wind chimes, metallic Buddhas, vases, artwork that depicts the metal element and flatware.

The presence of this element in your space, whether home or office minimizes or helps eliminate the distractions. It creates clarity and the energy of calm.

It also brings the qualities of precision, efficiency, and sharpness.

In the Bagua areas of your home, this element is best in the north, west and northwest areas. This element does not go with the east, southeast, northeast, southwest, centre and the east area in your home.

A balanced space requires proper placement of things. Use this element to optimize the flow of chi in your place.

5 Steps To Good Health With Feng Shui

Healthy food on the plate for good health.
Discover The Path To Good Health

How do you maintain good health?

 

In this busy world that we’re living in, giving priority to our health is the last thing that we do. It is one of the important things that we sacrifice the most.

Most homes these days are not suitable for healthy living. Along with stress, pollution, and unhealthy food, the bad vibrations in our place affects our health.

So, how can we have good health?

Feng Shui teaches us that there must be a balance in everything. We should be in harmony with everything around us – visible and invisible.

5 feng shui tips to consider to maintain good health:

1. Declutter your home. Clutter is the most common thing that we can see in most homes. It is not only an eyesore but it affects our physical, mental and emotional health as well. It causes us stress and makes us unhappy. It keeps us away from making good decisions.

An organized home keeps us calm and relaxes our mind. It makes us more efficient and gives us vibrant energy.

2. Food is medicine. Food plays a vital role when it comes to good health.  The food that you eat should not only heal and energize your body but also your soul.

Make your food as colourful as it can be and serve it at the right temperature. There should also be a balance when it comes to the taste. A good example would be sweet and sour.

3. Space cleanse your home. Our homes may have energies that have been stuck for a long time. Space cleansing will help you clear your house with these energies.

4. Be with nature. Trees and live plants are live energy. Take a walk in the park or go out of town and breathe fresh air.

5. Meditate. Studies have shown that constant meditation prevents anxiety and depression. It also heals the organs inside your body.

Good health is not only about the physical but also how we feel on the inside. It is a complete package

The Water Element In Feng Shui – Feng Shui Mastery Show

The Power Of The Water Element

Water is one of the Feng Shui elements. It belongs to the yin or the feminine side. However, if it flows aggressively, it has more of the masculine.

 

The absence of the water element when decorating a space creates an imbalance in your place. Using the water element correctly in your space will increase the flow of energy of wealth and abundance. It’s the reason why it is called as another word for wealth.

In Chinse, water is called Shui. It symbolizes stability, honesty, and patience. Blue and aqua are the colours of water. Among the four cycles of the season, it represents winter. In the Bagua Map, it represents the Life Journey Sector or the Career which can be found at the bottom-centre of the map.

It represents wealth and luck. In the Feng Shui element, the moon and the mercury are related to water. It is also associated with the black turtle.

The water element nourishes the wood element. In the creative cycle, it is nourished by the metal element. It is controlled by the earth element in the controlling cycle.

Proper placement of the symbols or things related to the water element in your home can create an auspicious energy that can help you in your career. Using the water element in your home can harness the energy of this element and enhance the flow of chi.

Any shape that is wavy in your space brings this element in your place. Crystals, water, and glass bring the water element into your space.

As much as it brings good energy into your space, the wrong placement of this symbols is considered inauspicious. So be very careful.

Do not place water features in your bedroom as it is believed to put out the passion in your relationship.

Make sure the water feature of your home is facing towards your home. The wrong direction of water means wealth running away from you.

Creating balance in your home brings good chi in your place. Along with the other elements in Feng Shui, use the water element to optimize the good energy in your house or office.
