The five-element theory is super important in feng shui and you must commit all three cycles - the productive, exhaustive and destructive cycles to memory in order to maximize the use of this formula to your feng shui advantage.
Today I want to only focus on the productive cycle, the colours that represent each of the five elements and how you can use this knowledge to enhance your good luck. So just to review - there are five elements – water, wood, fire, earth and metal. The colours of each are: blue/black for water, green or brown for wood, red for fire, yellow for earth and white or gold for metal.
We know that earth produces metal, metal produces water, water produces wood, wood produces fire, and fire produces earth.
The productive cycle of the five elements is the key that unlocks the enhancing technique of feng shui. So if you wish to activate a specific corner of your house:
Sound confusing? It’s really not difficult. Just think it through. Say you want to activate the NORTH for career luck. We know that north represents water and that metal produces water. Therefore we would place something gold or white in the north to activate the water.
Here’s another example: Say you want to activate the SOUTHEAST for wealth. Note that the element of this direction is WOOD. To produce wood you will need water. So anything blue or black or having a water feature will activate this corner. You can use these colours in your fabrics, decorative cushions paint and furniture.
This is an easy way to activate any corner of your home or office and increase your good luck by using colour!
