Enhancing the Wood element in your home

Balancing the Wood element in your home

To honour the start of Spring, I thought it would be timely this week to talk about the element of Wood in your home, because in terms of Feng Shui, Spring is governed by the Wood element. The Wood element rules two sectors of your home – the East and Southeast sectors. The East relates to your health and family relationships, and the Southeast relates to abundance* – not just financial abundance, but your perception of the abundance and blessings in your life. If either or both of these areas of out of balance, you will notice imbalance in these areas of your life.  So how do you enhance the East and Southeast areas of your home?

Right? We all have fat days or frumpy days, bad hair days or days when we just feel like we’re the wrong shape altogether and everything looks hideous on us. (if you don’t, you’re in the tiny minority and we envy you) So what does this have to do with Feng Shui? Just like every object in your home and every colour around you,  every piece of clothing is energy that is vibrating at a certain frequency, and what you wear on your person also co-creates the energy that you are radiating out to the world, and what you are attracting back to yourself.  There are days when I leap out of bed and just know exactly what I’m wearing that day. It’s just a green day (or blue, yellow, purple etc…) and no other colour will do. Or an entire outfit will be chosen based on which crystals need to be with me that day.  These are the days when I know who I …
