  Relationship of 5 Elements and Colors, Shapes & Materials



5-Element is the basic principle of feng shui.  Using the theory of 5 Elements can let feng shui balance. 5 Elements are metal, water, wood, fire and earth.  For example, we can use water or wood element to increase wood element since water generates wood.  On the other hand, we can use metal and fire to decrease wood element since metal destroys wood and wood produces fire. 


Colors, shapes and materials represent 5 elements. 


Colors represent 5 elements:  Gold, white and silver represent metal; Black, grey and blue represent water; Green represent wood; Red and pink represent fire; Yellow and brown represent earth. 


For instance, we can choose blue or green color to increase wood element and choose gold or red color to decrease wood element. 


Shapes are also representing 5 Elements: Round, oval and arch-shaped objects represent metal element; wave-shaped and free-flowing objects represent water element; retangle-shaped objects represent wood element; sharp-pointed objects and triangle objects represent fire element; square-shaped objects represent Earth.  


For example, we can use wave-shaped and free-flowing objects to increase wood element and choose sharp- pointed objects  to decrease wood element. 


In addition, materials are also representing 5 elements: Metals represent metal element; ponds and water fountains represent water element; wood, plants and flowers represent wood element; lighting objects represent fire element; ceramic and porcelain objects represent Earth. 


For instance, we can use water fountain to increase wood element and use lighting objects to decrease wood element.
