During our house audits, we may often detect certain sectors that has some imbalance of energy. These can be caused by within the house or due to the external part of house which is common.
What can we do? The solution varies from isolating the sector with issues to more commonly known to place certain element cures to harmonize the energy.
As such, part of the principles in classical Fengshui encompasses introducing cures to balance the imbalance of energy in the house. I would not be sharing much on the interaction of the five elements though in this post.
Instead, I would share an introduction on each of the five elements and objects that can be used to represent.
The below list would give you some informational insights:
Objects - Coins, wind chimes, shiny metal objects or other metallic items
Colours – Silver, grey and white
Numbers – 6, 7
Shape – Oval, round
Objects – Aquarium or water feature e.g. fountains
Colours – Blue, black
Numbers – 1
Shape – curvy, waves
Objects – Plants (e.g. bamboo), flowers or wood objects
Colours – Green
Numbers – 3, 4
Shape – Rectangle
Objects – Lamp, candle lights
Colors – Red, pink, orange
Numbers – 9
Shape – Triangle
Objects – Ceramic items, gem stone, crystals, landscape or mountainous images
Colours – Brown, beige
Numbers – 2, 5, 8
Shape – Square
With the above, would we be able to start using the above to commence placing cures in our house?
Much as it is, I would like to suggest all to exercise some caution. Some cures especially elements such as water or flowers for example are to be used with caution as they may activate certain stars (e.g. imagine activating the peach blossom stars for someone married!). It may also not be suitable to be used in certain area of the property.
Lastly, practicality and flexibility is key to the application of Feng Shui. There are options to the objects you can place. Nothing mystical.
Hopefully the above offers a useful insight and better understanding on the representative objects used for each element too.
