One of the ‘Secrets’ of Feng Shui is the use of the Five Elements Theory. We are currently nearing the end of the Wood Cycle, the amazing element for growth and new beginnings. If you are feeling stuck in your life, Wood can help you move through and past that experience. One of the simplest ways to connect with the Wood element is to nurture a plant, a tree, or a garden. Plants are visible evidence of how caring and giving return many benefits. If you care for a plant, you literally receive benefits of a return of positive energy!
Another way to bring the Wood element into your life is to bring that element into your surroundings. Here are some ideas for ways to do that:
- Tall, columnar, rectangular shapes
- Colors: green, blues
- Wood objects, plants, flowers, bamboo (considered sacred), trees, art containing plant life
Finally, if you are seeking positive, growth oriented employees, search for a Wood person. They are leaders in their fields, and great at motivating others. One clue to finding them: they might be tall and slender, just like a tree!
Try incorporating wood into your life. You just might find yourself soaring forward, beyond your current obstacles!
