Present in everything we do, the elements are regarded as the building blocks of all natural phenomena. They are also integral to how we experience daily life.
The practice of Feng Shui seeks to bring balance by understanding how our element influences our energies within - wisdom, socializing, creativity, prosperity and status.
As the seasons change so does our focus. Spring is the season of growth - Yin gives way to Yang, and the leader of the elements, wood, takes charge. Like the branches of a tree, this energy moves upwards and outwards and so begins a period of fresh ideas and endeavors.
To ready our minds for this challenge we must pay attention to our space - physical clutter is mental clutter - so a simple spring clean will help you prepare for the adventures ahead. Take daily walks in nature to help your body attract the incoming Yang energy, and rest your eyes often as they are closely linked to the liver, an organ of special attention this season.
Be aware, however, that seasonal change can also elicit anger, so periods of calm and relaxation are vital to maintaining balance. Therefore, with your attention facing east, take regular breaks from your devices, exercise and spend time in nature to absorb the vitality that is beginning to emerge.
For Yang Water, spring focuses on prosperity, socializing and creativity.
To welcome prosperity, declutter the south and southeast of your home and place a table-top water feature in the southeast of your living room or workspace.
This season’s energy promotes beneficial connections. Dedicate time to meeting up with siblings, friends, colleagues and business associates during the evening. A wardrobe of dark blue or black will help express your sociable energy.
Perfect Pairings: Reinforce your personal element with Sacred Water and Guiding Water fragrances.
To promote this energy, pay attention to the east of your home and workspace, adorning both with your creative work.
Perfect Pairings: Invite inspiration with the scent of Golden Wood and Magnetic Wood.< Back
