In Feng Shui, each area of the home (and also the office and garden) are divided into sections which are roughly wedge shaped, like sections of an orange with a circular centre, the central number is 5 - the primary door is located at No 1; Each section is known as a ‘house’ which governs the energy of that area
1 Water (The Journey). On one level this relates to career; on a deeper level this area symbolizes the ability to flow through your life enjoying the journey and being clear on where you' going. All images relating to water are appropriate here; fountains, lakes, waterfalls and the ocean; water-colored crystals such as aquamarine, turquoise, and chrysocolla, images of aquatic creates such as frogs, fish, dolphins, whales, and fountains.
2 Earth (Relationships). This area symbolizes all relationships: business, romantic, teacher/student, etc. In its deepest sense it signifies receptivity, which leads to appreciation of others. Paired objects are appropriate here: two candles, gemini crystals, a pair of pillows (which also stand for receptivity). If working on attracting, deepening, or healing a love relationship, place rose quartz here. Images of turtles (which represent the earth and grounding) or animals which mate for life are helpful.
3 Thunder (Ancestors). Governs all authority figures including parents, teachers, bosses who deserve our respect. Often forgiveness must precede respect. This area relates to issues with the past and with authority. Appropriate stones include smoky quartz (to release negativity associated with the past), azurite (for understanding the past), and rose quartz (forgiveness). Since Thunder is sound - drums and table chimes are good here, as is a power animal or any image which for you symbolizes your spiritual lineage.
4 Wind (Fortunate Blessings). Wind blows new energies into our lives, which can be those of material blessings. Focus on prosperity in this area, but can also stand for professional acknowledgment, health, and other blessings. Citrine and emerald assist prosperity. Aventurine for health issues. Wind chimes to draw energy here. A buffalo, bear or frog for healing. Aroma-lamps are appropriate here.
5 Tai Chi. This area symbolizes the center and the reconciliation of all disharmony. This is an excellent location for clear quartz or an aromalamp
6 Heaven (Helpful Friends). Heaven represents the spiritual energy which creates matter. This energy is a gift, and this area relates to the gifts of kindness and assistance we both receive and give. Crystals, as images of spirit (or light) in matter, are especially related to this area, so all crystals are appropriate here. A particularly nice one for this spot is aqua aura (for self-expression through service to others). Images of angels and eagles, for Spirit. A good location for your favorite power animal.
7 Lake (Creativity) True creativity comes from the depths of our being, a source as invisible as the bottom of a lake. This area also relates to children, both in the sense of their being our creations, and to the playful creative spirit of a child. Malachite and carnelian enhance creativity, and this is another good location for a fountain. Dolphins are often considered symbols of creativity
8 Mountain (Contemplation) This area represents relationships with spirituality, the ability to withdraw from the world and gain strength from the inner spirit. This is a good place for stones which promote peacefulness and tranquility, such as amethyst and chrysocolla. An image of a sleeping cat may also be appropriate. Decorative boxes and vases are also suitable (to symbolize the empty, receptive nature of meditation).
9 Fire (Illumination) This area symbolizes inner fulfillment as an alternative from trying to create self-esteem from the opinions of others and the ability to share one' sense of enlightenment. All stones with fiery, pulsating energy, such as carnelian, ruby, garnet, belong here, as well as smoky quartz (for self-esteem). This is a good location for candles.
