Learn how to effectively use feng shui elements

The fire element is the most volatile of all the five feng shui elements—it has the power to both destroy and renew. However, fire’s power to destroy is often seen as a means to rebirth at a higher level. It is a symbol of purification and regeneration. Of the five elements of feng shui, fire is best used if you seek transformation and change.

Fire represents purification, renewal, transformation and expansion.

The element of fire is often represented by the sun. Fire, like the sun, provides light and warmth. Therefore, all types of lighting, candles, and fireplaces make terrific feng shui cures. “Fiery” feng shui colors like red and orange will help activate the elements of fire as well. Less commonly known is that according to the properties of the five Chinese elements, animals and things made from animals activate fire.
