You are the Wood Element! The archetype of the Pioneer or Initiator!
More on the Five Elements
in Maureen's book,
Creating Luminous Spaces
- Uprising energy
- Ambition and action
- Season of Spring
An independent, driving force. The love of adventure, courage and competitiveness gives Wood the motivation to spring forward into action. She is boundless and always on the search for new things to try. True entrepreneurial spirit. Possessing the ability to see far into the distance, gives her the depth and inspiration needed for proper Wood balance.
Flexibility, adaptability and resilience when confronted with a challenge. It’s the sprouting seed that encounters a rock – using her inborn cleverness she finds her way around any obstacle. She thrives with the idea of change and sees the adventure of possibilities. Bold and direct, she branches out with confidence and self-sufficiency. She is a natural leader, forging a new path for others to follow.
What to Include in your spaces...
To support and nurture your Wood at home, make sure that you have both the Water and Wood Elements:
- Wood – plants, images of flowers and trees, color green, wood-based fabrics (like cotton and burlap) and wood furnishings. Also, carry or wear these crystals: Green Aventurine or Iolite.
- Water – water fountain, mirrors, glass, blue and black, and images of bodies of water.
What to Avoid in your spaces...
Make sure your home doesn’t have too much Fire and Metal, which can drain you and cause conflict:
- Fire – lots of candles, reds and oranges in your décor, patterns with pointy shapes, such as zig zags
- Metal – metal objects, white and gray in your décor, or fabrics with a silvery sheen to them.
