Day #76 (General)
Today is the start of two weeks of Plants in Places for Feng Shui.
Plants play a huge role in Feng Shui and are one of our essential elements for our own survival as well as connecting you to our natural environment.
Over the next 2 weeks I will be chatting about the different types of plants used in Feng Shui, their characteristics and qualities they bring to your space, how they can represent your energy and reflect your environment and why certain plants are commonly represented in Feng Shui.
We also celebrate Earth Day within the 1st week, hence my plan to focus on one significant way we can connect and use our natural environment for not only yourself and enhancing your space, but to also to start or enhance your own relationship with Mother Nature and how we can positively impact our environment. Connection is the key.
Within the Chinese 5 Element theory plants represent the Wood element and can be used as a remedy for sectors of your home or business which require an injection of the Wood element.
But most importantly they enhance your space by creating Yang energy and Sheng Qi – positive energy.
Plants are great to use within a room that need more yang.
What does this mean?
Your living spaces e.g. Living rooms, dining rooms, office and study love to be active and a great way of creating more active energy is to place plants in that space.
They can also be used to dampen or cover poison arrows. The term ‘poison arrows’ is common within Feng Shui and represents sharp or pointing energy that can actually create Sha Qi or challenging energy e.g. Corners of furniture or of a room.
Though they only impact on you if you sit for long periods of time in close proximity of a poison arrow. Placing a plant between you and the poison arrow is an easy cure for dampening this energy.
So it’s time to get that green thumb of yours into action and join in on Plants in Places.
There’s a lot more uses for plants for your space though more of that info in the days to come.
