Water Features: Water fountains and fish tanks are quick and easy ways to introduce the Water Element to your home. Flowing water generates a sense of movement and will boost your wealth chi when flowing towards, rather than away from, your home; while the tinkling sound of a fountain is a natural strategy for lowering stress. Check out my previous blog: Make a Splash: How to Decorate with the Water Element.
Living Things: Plants and flowers represent Wood Energy and are living adjustments that bring vibrant chi into a space. Potted plants can be used to remediate even the worst floor plan issues, while flowers bring colorful life to any room (check out my previous blog: Fabulous Flowers). Well-loved pets represent the Fire Element and are a natural source of positive living energy too.
Lighting: Since Feng Shui is all about energy, and light is the strongest manifestation of energy, lighting has a dominant influence in the quality of chi in our home. Balance up-lights (torchieres, sconces), and ambient lighting (table lamps, directional bulbs) to support conversation and relaxation. Group lights in threes, and install dimmer switches wherever possible.
Crystals: The word “crystal” comes from the Greek work “krystallos” meaning “frozen light.” They come in many different forms and serve a variety of different functions. Hang clear faceted crystal in your window to attract the sun. Use amethyst or quartz to stabilize and ground you, or to heal your heart.
1. Art/Color: There’s nothing that transforms a space quite like color. When used correctly, color enhances the potency and quality of energy to remedy regions of the Bagua that might be otherwise lacking. Color can be simply integrated through the use of a feature wall, accent pillows, furnishings, slip covers, and art. The symbolic meaning of the art in your home is also import. Placing a picture of a couple silhouetted on the beach is a powerful message to someone who’s looking for a relationship.
