Neutralizing Element

The key to Feng Shui revolves around the understanding of the 5 Elements. A Feng Shui practitioner must be conversant in understanding, analysing and interpreting the productive and destructive sequences of the 5elements. In this site, many topics at one time or another make use of the 5elements.

It is not uncommon for a Feng Shui practioner to ask you to place potted plants in the North (Water element) of the house or to have `warm' coloured curtains in the South (Fire element) to `enhance' that particular location. 

Productive Sequence

If an element comes under the threat of another element e.g. water puts out fire; fire melts metal; metal breaks wood; wood (roots of plants) penetrates the earth; and earth is absorbed water. In this situation, Feng Shui experts will advice you to place a neutralising element to avoid such harmful effects.
