Element or Elemental Energy is fundamental at home to feel balanced and stable. Feng shui uses Elemental Energy all of the time. In this article we will give you tips about the 4 primary Elements.


Earth provides the stable environment from which all life springs, lives and thrives. Is the foundation of  all things and the receiver of the seed. I believe its the most important element to have present in your home, since the whole aspect of home is a place where you can ground and thrive.

Invoke for: wisdom, connection, abundance, grounding, support, growth, rebirth, money, security, feminine energy, strength

If you are moving or remodeling, this is the best element to start with. When this element is balances you will feel :

  • Stable, consistent, Hard-working, Loyal, Nurturing, Logical, Empathetic

When Earth is out of Balance you will notice:

  • Lazy, Scornful, Overly cautious, Stubborn to the point of impractical, Rigid

To Balance Earth in your home, incorporate plants with soil, wood in your furniture, utensils in the kitchen, wooden Art and all types of fabrics. Rugs are ideal for spaces to come together and ground, giving you a cozy warm feeling. Once you have selected the items that speak to you with an earthy voice, follow your intuition to find the perfect spot for each one of them.

Taurus, Virgo & Capricorn are Earth signs and its crucial to have this element balanced at home.

Air being ever present, and constantly entering our body through breath, has no need to be physically present, since its already here. With Air we work on being able to observe it or to remind us that its always here.

You can incorporate any kind of moving Mobiles and use them as a reminder to connect with this element. Air plants work perfect too and they combine the Elemental Energy of Earth & Air.
