As the languid days of summer wind down, how can Feng Shui help you ease back into the hustle and bustle of fall?
Harness the power of the Five Elements to bring new balance into your life as summer’s incandescent Fire fades. The Earth element brings stability back to your world, followed closely by the organizing Metal element of fall.
Earth & Metal for Fall – The Season Of Joy
In Feng Shui, fall is the season of Joyful emotions, when we reconnect with friends, co-workers and clients. Earth provides energy and stability for re-establishing these important relationships, while Metal provides the focus you need to make the most of them.
To help you prepare for the season of activity ahead, here are Feng Shui tips that show you how to use the energies of the Elements to your best advantage.
Fall Feng Shui
1. As the Fire-y brilliance of summer fades, keep the light alive and nourish your Earth element by bringing warm earth tones into your environment.
2. Re-connect with Earth by attending to indoor plants: fertilize them after the draining energy of summer, trim off dead material, and repot them or loosen up the dirt to give them some breathing room.
3. Support the Earth element by clearing clutter from horizontal surfaces like dining tables, guest beds and kitchen counters. Earth nourishes Metal, the element of maturity that helps you focus and bring closure to important projects.
4. Metal represents Children in Feng Shui’s Bagua. If you have kids, this is the moment to help them fine-tune their bedrooms and study spaces as they return to school.
Feng Shui has ways to help you stay balanced whenever the seasons change. Don’t hesitate to call if you need a hand bringing your space — and your life — back into balance, at any time of year.
