Feng Shui professional series
Use of element shapes.
This section is for the professional Practitioner and gives advice each month on how you can use traditional cures and enhancers for your clients.
One point that is frequently overlooked by many Practitioners is with using the five elements as a cure or enhancer you should also combine shapes as a cure. An example: If you want to activate a #8 mountain star, as you know this is an auspicious earth star that would need fire to activate it and more importantly a mountain outside, it would be nice to have a real mountain but as you know this is not always possible, so you need to create a mountain. When you recommend a mountain to your client ask them to make a pointed shape (triangular) mountain as the point is fire element, do you see what I mean? Use the shape of the element you need that way you are reinforcing the activation of the star.
Another example: If you had a #6 (metal) mountain star that you want to activate for your client use an earth shape mountain (oblong) as earth creates metal.
How do you use shapes inside the home or office? Simply apply the same technique, if you need to activate #1 water star obviously you would recommend metal but you can also combine this with some metal shapes (round) on the wall or a picture of water in the shape of a round pond. If you need a fire element recommend a painting or picture of a nice triangular shape volcano.
Let your imagination run wild, think about your cures and your enhancers from every angle, if you need to activate a #4 wood mountain star and you are using a line of trees outside to support it ask your client to have them shaped at the top so they are wavy (water) and uneven heights. If you want to activate a front door area that has a #8 mountain star erect a side gate in this area to create more mountain and have the top of the gate with a point on it as this is a fire element and obviously paint the gate red (fire colour).
Do you know of a cure Michael recently used with a client who develops luxury homes in London, they were obtaining planning permission on a superb property in a sought after area and getting much opposition from residents, the # 3 wood star was activated by surrounding environment so believe it or not he recommended placing two traffic cones in the areas outside that had the #3 wood in, why a traffic cone? Their shape is very fire (pointed) and also coloured bright fire red.
