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 Metal, spring focuses on creativity, prosperity, and status.
To promote this energy, declutter the north of your home and workspace and adorn the area with your creative work. Allocate quality time to bond with those that inspire and motivate you, such as children, if you have them, or staff if you manage a company.
Perfect Pairings: Invite inspiration with the scent of Sacred Water and Guiding Water fragrances.
To welcome prosperity, pay attention to your front door and ensure it is in perfect condition. Declutter the south and southeast of your home, and place a table-top water feature in the southeast of your living room or workspace. Keep your hallway clear so that wealth energy can enter freely.
Challenge your mind with books and activities that inspire you, and increase your personal power by attending workshops either online or in-person. A wardrobe of red will help you express your assertiveness this season.< Back
