Feng Shui

Feng Shui is the practice of uniting the five elements of earth, water, wood, metal and fire to bring harmony to your home. When they are united in one landscape they bring about the balance of positive energy into your career, homelife and environment.

I have attempted to bring these together in my garden with the latest acquisition my fire pit. I have purchased a metal fire pit which alone incorporates three of the elements in one place. Wood that is burned metal of the fire pit and Fire from the burning of the wood.

If you are not able to have a fire pit then you have several options to bring in the three elements that will bring the balance to your life.

For the Wood element you can use green or brown color in a painting or green or brown crystals.

To represent the Metal element you may use gray or white color crystals or paint on some of the surfaces that are in the patio area. Providing crystals are one of the most beautiful ways to bring in the element on a small patio or balcony.

For the Fire Element you are able to use crystal or paint in the colors Pink, Red, strong Yellow, orange or purple.Again the crystals can be used when space is a commodity that you do not have. Having crystals of the correct color will improve the feng shui of the entire area.

Feng Shui will help you make life more simple and more balanced so incorporate these 5 elements and watch what happens in your life and then come back and comment. I would love to hear how bringing elements into your outdoor living space made your life better.

Water Element

Bringing in water to your garden brings the final step of having all five elements in your outdoor living area.

Earth and Water Elements

In my garden both vegetable and flower already bring in the earth element.

If you are wanting a feng shui outdoor living area and you have only a cement or concrete patio and you have no lawn or your thumb isn't green then you can use crystals or artwork to bring in the same element to your outdoor living area. Simply use the colors light brown, light yellow or sand colors.These can be used in conjunction with the other crystals or they can be used in the cushion colors or the flower pots used in your outdoor space.

I will be adding in my pond to bring in the water element. Until I have the pond built I will be bringing in the water element through a small fountain that I will have on my table which will bring in the water.

Now you can also bring in the elements through color and crystals. So I can bring in Blue or black colors or crystals and have the same effect as having a pond. I have one more option I can always have a picture of water to bring in that elemental as well.

Feng shui is here to make life better and more balanced . There are always options that you can use to bring the balance to life without breaking the bank or remodeling your home. These are just a few of those options.

      Vicki, Especially helpful are your color and crystal suggestions for those who, for whatever reasons, are not able to install the actual elements in their inside and outside living spaces. Well presented.

      Appreciatively, Stessily
