Yang Metal

Context

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. Summer is the season of abundance—the trees and plants are in full bloom, and everything brims with Yang energy, which reaches its peak on the June 21st summer solstice.

Make use of the longer days to cultivate and store Yang energy for the cooler autumn and winter months. Rise early, meditate, then focus your working energy into the hours before the midday heat. Importantly, take time for a leisurely lunch before continuing at a lighter pace for the rest of the working day. Once finished, be sure to enjoy the balmy evenings. Follow a summer diet of salads and cooling dishes, with herbal teas and fresh juices. Avoid spicy foods and caffeine—diet is our energy, so consuming in balance with the season will promote harmony.

The element of summer is Fire, which focuses on the heart and mind. Achieving balance this season will mean an active body and calm thoughts. Fire energy can also evoke agitation, restlessness, sadness and anger, so keep tempers at bay with regular meditations. The hottest season is notoriously the one of impulse and passion; by paying attention to the south, and keeping your home and workspace tidy, you can channel the most positive expression of these energies: joy.
