In the previous Feng Shui steps we discussed Yin Yang principle that says that everything should be balance. The second Feng Shui step says that there are 5 elements in the natural flow of energies. And finally Feng Shui step 3: how these 5 natural elements interact between each other and how we can use these interactions to positively change our lives.
So, we know already that all elements in the universe interact between each other. Feng Shui is based on understanding flow of Chi (energy). Five elements represent different types of Chi.
There are three Cycles that show how Five Elements interact.
- The productive cycle
- The domination Cycle (or Destructive Cycle)
- The Reductive Cycle
The Productive Cycle
We’ll start from productive cycle. It is the basic chart to see how universe lives.
Burning wood produces fire
Fire leaves behind Earth
Earth is the source of Metal
Metal liquefies into a substance flowing like water
Water helps wood to thrive.
The Domination Cycle
The Domination Cycle causes problems. If our houses have some troubles, it means, that house doesn’t have harmony and Domination Cycle is Active. In this case we need to use one of the rest two Cycles: Productive Cycle or Reductive Cycle. NEVER USE DOMINATION CYCLE!!!
The Reductive Cycle
This cycle is used to increase the power of the weak elements. For example, you have green room, green furniture representing Wood and one small fountain representing Water. If you want to increase the power of Water element, you need to add Metal features: white, silver, grey and gold, round shapes. But don’t forget that a lot of Metal will cause the conflict with wood, so be careful and follow Yin Yang Principle.
With the help of this chart and knowledge of the previous steps about Yin Yang and Five Element, you can change your life by changing you houses and rooms.
