The Summer Season And Feng Shui

Adding cooler colours can make your home calm and cooler this summer.
Feng Shui Tips For Summer

Summer is already here. The temperature is getting hotter which makes our home an uncomfortable place.

In the old days, humans spend time ensuring that they live in harmony with nature. However, these days, most people seem disconnected from nature which in turn causes us to feel stuck.

Feng shui means wind and water. It’s an ancient philosophy that teaches us about being in harmony within and around us.

In feng shui, the summer season belongs to the fire element. It is associated with the hot and yang energy. It brings creativity, drive, warmth, and self-confidence which means there’s more energy. However, too much fire energy in us makes us feel irritable, restless or drained.

Summer is connected to the reputation and fame. In the Bagua map, the fame and reputation sector can be found at the back middle section of your office or home.

To bring balance to your place, rearranging your space will do. Adding yin in your space, which is the lighter and calmer energy will do.

Below are the summer tips that you can do if there’s too much yang in your place:

1. Add cooler colours in your home like blue or purple.

2. Live plants are a must in every home. Live indoor plants keep the air temperature down, helps reduce stress and increases your focus. Definitely, a vital thing that you need to make you feel relax.

3. Add water element in your home by putting a water fountain in front of your home and make sure that it is flowing towards your house. This represents the energy of abundance moving in your direction.

4. The amethyst is great in cooling your home. It gets rid of the negative and stuck energy in your house.

These little changes can help you create a  cooler and more balanced home this summer season.

The Fire Element In Feng Shui

The Power Of The Fire Element

The fire element is one of the five elements in feng shui. This element is known to be the most masculine among the five elements. It’s more of a yang than a yin.

The fire element is known to be the energy of happiness and joyful celebrations. It is known as the energy of love and romance. It represents passion and sexual desire. It is a joy giving element. It brightens the space and brings out a creative presence in the area.

The colour of the fire element is red or shades of red. However, when the element is more on the feminine side, it belongs to the purple colour.

Just like the other elements, this element should be used to create balance. Using too much of this can be overwhelming. The fire element should be used in areas where it needs to be strengthened.

This energy is associated with traits such as action, anger, leadership, dynamism, aggression, grief, spirituality, joy, frustration, and vanity.

The shape that represents the fire energy is the triangle. Pointed shapes like the star bring in this energy in your home.

The wood element nourishes the fire element while the water element weakens the fire energy in a place.

The bagua areas for the fire element are the southwest, south, center and the northeast. The east, west, southeast and the northwest side of your home should be well taken care of as these areas do not like this element.

Use red accessories to bring in this energy into your place. Good lighting is vital in bringing in this energy. Decorations like artworks that feature animals or people, animal prints and even raising a pet cat or dog represent the warm nature of fire.

Remember that this element is related to your emotional health. Having a good laugh to start every day brings out this energy in you.
