- Earth = 4 = 36.36%
- Water = 0 = 0%
- Wood = 3 = 27.27%
- Metal = 3 = 27.27%
- Fire = 1 = 9.9% (percentages courtesy of my math whiz friend Judy H.)
The first thing I need to do is balance the predominance of Earth/Wood/Metal with more Fire and a Lot more Water. According to the book this is important to know and do, the results being beneficial changes in work, home, and personal feng shui.
- To bring the water up I need to introduce Metal and Water. Metal in the form of gold/silver/metallic; wind chimes/coins/striking clocks/metal objects/sculpture; spherical/domed shapes. Water in the form of black or dark blue/indoor fountains/fish tank/humidifiers; wavy/sinuous shapes.
I love wind chimes, have four sets of them outside, and one right here to the left of my office desk. I have two striking clocks, one working one not...I'll get the second one working. I can lay my hands on a small humidifier and I see those shaped little bamboo trees that sit in water all the time, I'll pick on one of those. Might even be a plant that will live in this house!
- To bring Fire up I need to introduce Wood and Fire. Wood is green/indoor plants/bamboo, tall/rectangular shapes. Fire is Red/candles/lamps/fire, triangular/pointed shapes.
I'm actually pretty balanced in these things, I'm going to get the bamboo, and I will do better at remembering to actually light the candles I have around the house.
Much to think on today, and I also should apply it to my 5th Wheel at our farm. In looking over the changes needed I find I have most of that in place there with the exception of plants. Could that be why things go better up there than here at home? And what more will I discover tomorrow? I'm all agog...I also need to search my blog and see what the Feng Shui deck had to tell me the week I used it, see if there are any echos of my Pillars of Destiny.
