Feng Shui:  Fire Elements

A couple of months ago, we briefly delved into the Water Element/Energy of Feng Shui (read more here).  If you’re a believer in Feng Shui energies,  balancing the five elements of Feng Shui can bring peace and harmony to your space and life.

Including elements of fire in your home can Increase enthusiasm and leadership skills.  One can use this element in design to encourage expressiveness, inspiration and boldness.

When there’s an overabundance of fire, it can show itself as anger, aggression, irritability and impulsive behavior, whereas too little can show up as emotional coldness, lack of vision and a lack of self-esteem.

Remember:  it’s all about balance!  It’s also important to note that including the fire element, doesn’t necessarily mean you must have actual fire burning in the home.  Use of the color red in decor and various sources of light also count.
