Imagine yourself as a tall and strong bamboo with many shoots and healthy leaves - standing straight, yet allowing the gentle breeze to move you. Breath in the healing colors of green. Eat fresh leafy vegetables, and envision All people being fed and sustained by vibrant healthy green, enlivening organic food.
Hold the vision of the image, "Cultivating New Roots", from your Wood Element Feng Shui Altar Card.
Where, in your home, do the East and Southeast directions reside? This is the place of Wood, cultivating new growth and setting deep roots from the spirit and gifts of past and future generations. Be great-full today for tomorrow’s gardens. Draw inspiration in the upward movement and blessings of healthy growth and our earthly fulfillment of life’s sustaining sources.
Place a black or blue bowl, filled with water (Water produces Wood) in the East and/or Southeast of your creative, living space. Float fresh flowers, lucky bamboo sprouts, leaves or grasses in the bowl. This symbolizes, activates and amplifies new growth and creative opportunities ... the sprouting of new, fertile ventures.
Engender the feeling that “looking upward” brings to mind, body and spirit. Dance, practice yoga, stretch ... become supple and bend like the willow branch. Have patience. Reach your arms out, confident in your strong presence, like the a great oak tree. Each of our potentials is unearthed in the perfection of its own timing in order to receive and appreciate most fully, the delicate nectar and fragrant gifting that we are uniquely capable to birth.
