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 Yin Earth, spring focuses on wisdom, prosperity, and status.
To promote wisdom, pay attention to the body both inside and out. Exercise regularly and nourish your body with nutritious local food. Use midday to practice meditation and yoga amongst nature, remembering to position yourself in an auspicious southerly direction.
Perfect Pairings: Find clarity of thought with the scents of Hypnotizing Fire and Velvet Fire candles and fragrances.
To attract prosperity, ensure your front door is in perfect condition and place a money plant such as crassula ovata in the north of your office or living room. Declutter so that wealth energy can circulate without obstruction.
This season is a great environment in which to increase your personal power. Focus your thoughts to visualize the life you desire, and channel the reserves you have built during the winter months to propel you on your path.< Back
