In Feng Shui, Wood is one of the five elements of all energy. The others include Fire, Water, Earth, and Metal. As explained in the Feng Shui part of the Crystal Vaults, each of these elements are critical to keep in balance in our lives and in our homes.
Wood energy is the energy of growth, expansion, new beginnings, nourishment, and health. It enhances vitality, brings abundance, and keeps us growing physically.
Wood energy is symbolized by green and brown. Use these colors of crystals to enhance any space that you use for eating, in the room of a small child, or in a place of your home where you are beginning a new project.
Wood energy is traditionally associated with the East and Southeast areas of a home or room. It is associated with the Family and Health area and the Prosperity and Abundance area. Wood energy is vital to your well being.
You can support the wood energy in a location by not only adding some green or brown crystals to bring the energy into the space, but also by adding some water energy to that space to support the wood. Black or blue crystals near the green ones are perfect.
If there is is too much metal energy in a space that needs wood energy, for example a computer, then that energy should be reduced to keep it from harming the wood energy. Traditionally red crystals representing the fire element are used. A small garnet cluster near a computer will mitigate its strong metal energy.
Wood energy diminishes Earth energy, and enhances Fire energy. Green and Brown crystals can be used in areas where there is too much of the Earth element or in an area with too little of the Fire element. The wood element is life giving and nourishing. Use it in your home or office for your health and well being.
