5 Elements ~ Human, a story full of success


The basic idea of the 5 element is about 3,000 years old. The Chinese found out after partially lifelong research in the Auiftrag of the respective emperor that everything, which exists on this planet earth, is assigned to one of the 5 elements. In other cultures, such as the Greeks, Egyptians and Indians, 4 elementary energies are distinguished: fire, earth, air and water. The principle is the same.

In Feng Shui we investigate how the elements interact with each other, how they affect humans and how they can be used as a remedy.

  • Water
  • Wood
  • Fire
  • Earth
  • Metal

have as elements all their special energies, characteristics and behaviors. So we found out in an experiment that a person who belongs to the fire element after his birth year reacts weakly in the muscle test if he is only 1 meter away from a fountain in a room. Some people even react at a distance of 3 meters.

Each person can be assigned several elements, according to his character, body constitution, year of birth or personal trigram. In Feng Shui 2 elements are particularly considered: the year of birth element, which is important especially for Feng Shui measures in interiors as well as the personal life trigram element, which is considered with the evaluation of the individual living areas and with the organization of a firm Logo. Both elements are in direct interaction with the immediate surroundings. The trigram is comparable to the elements of western astrology. It appears slower than the birth year element and is subordinated to it. For example, if you want to define colors in rooms, you first have to test the birth year element kineosologically and then the trigram. Ideally, both are in harmony with the colour.

At this point I will name some keywords to the 5 elements in view of Feng Shui. In order to analyze a person exactly this information is by far not sufficient. Symptoms of illness are not discussed here. It should give a small insight, in order to get to know the element itself a little closer.
