Balance the Elements. When you walk into a room, check for a balance of colors, shapes, elements, and sizes. You will feel balanced and supported in a room that has all five elements placed in their corresponding corner of the room.
The five elements include Metal, Earth, Fire, Wood and Water and each one is represented by colors and shapes that can either strengthen or weaken an area. Feng Shui aims for balance, and can be used to support the person who lives their, and attract their goals in powerful ways.

So if your element is Metal, your best colors are Metal colors like white, gold, silver, copper and bronze. The enhancing or strengthening element is Earth, so to impress an important client, an employer or a hot date, you would wear one of the metal colors along with an Earth color like orange, brown, rose, beige or yellow. You could wear a Metal color and complement with an accessory or jewelry in an Earth color. This will make you particularly attractive, for an important situation where you want to be at your energetic best.
In a home, you want to balance each element with something that feeds or strengthens. Here’s how it works:
Metal comes from the Earth, so Earth feeds Metal. Fire burns Wood, so Wood feeds Fire. Water feeds Wood, so Water strengthens Wood. Plants are considered wood, and plants need water to grow.
Fire colors include red, orange, yellow, purple, rose, ruby, fuscia, cherry red and magenta. These colors should be placed together with Wood colors such as green and black. These elements balance each other when placed together.
The Water colors of blue and black, can be placed together with the Wood colors of green and brown for best energy flow in your living room, office or bedroom.
So there you have it in a nutshell. We will cover where to place these colors in your living room, office or bedroom, in a future blog. I hope you will find these tips on the five elements helpful.
