The energy of abundance and blessings associated with feeling we have sufficient to our needs and more to share with others. Feeling we are held, supported and blessed in every area of our lives. This is the energy of good fortune we focus on in this area of feng shui for our living and working spaces.
This energy has a strong polarity with the energy of “helpful friends” and reciprocation, sharing and philanthropy. What we give out comes back to us.
The element associated with this area of the bagua for our homes is WOOD or more accurately, TREE energy.
This is the energy of upward and outward growth and vitality. Offering the fuel to our inner and outer fire which we covered in last months Free Webinar and blog posts.
COLOUR FOR ABUNDANCE
The colour associated with this element is GREEN which symbolises lush growth and vitality.
Design elements and decor with a strong vertical emphasis (think of the growth pattern of tall trees) bring in the vital essence of this element.
Interestingly in studies on our human response to colour, it has been found that those of us who favour the colour green tend to be more community oriented, reaching out and connecting with others in clubs and associations, preferring to live in “the great forest of humanity”, whereas those of us who show a dislike for green tend to resist connection and lead a more isolated or sometimes anxious existence.
Green imbues a space with a gentle and harmonious, peaceful energy; what can be more peaceful than a walk through a lush, green forest?
ARTWORK FOR ABUNDANCE
Artwork in this area of our homes will ideally feel abundant and represent blessings to us. Artwork is subjective, therefore take some time to really analyse your gut-reaction to the artwork you have in this area of your home or workplace. How does it make you feel? Does it feel lush, abundant, vital and fresh? If not, maybe its time to rearrange or replace some of your decorative elements.
ESSENTIAL OILS FOR ABUNDANCE
Simply gently diffuse in a cold air diffuser. Scent is deeply personal so it is important to find essential oils that resonate with positive memories for you. In general the citrus oils are wonderful to provide uplift.
Essential oil recommendation to uplift the energy of abundance:-
- Orange (citrus sinesis) essential oil has a warm sunny sweet aroma which infuses joy into a space, unblocks and circulates stagnant energy and calms tension when we feel overwhelmed.
