Wood-related jobs

The general of Wood is growth is the nature of plants to grow, upwards, towards the light. Since the principles of growth and progress figure prominently in the education field, if you are a teacher, trainer, tutor, coach and the like, involved in helping others grows, upwards, you’re part of the Wood business. Of course, if you’re a SCUBA diving instructor, your job would be a mix of Wood and Water.
Yang Wood (trees) and Yin Wood (grass)
If you are a doctor, by healing the sick and setting the unhealthy onto the road to health, thus paving the way for the patients’ proper growth, medical and healthcare practitioners are in Wood-related careers.

There are the obvious Wood-related industries – those that deal with felling trees and processing them into planks, furniture, paper, publishing industry that runs on paper and so on.

Writing itself create imaginary worlds, also write them down on paper, heck back in the day you might have also used a pencil as your writing tool!.

Please remember many jobs this day and age are no longer simple single-element vocations. For example, a hairdresser would be a Wood-related industry as hair is associated with Wood. however it also “create beauty and make people beautiful” and therefore involves Fire. At the same time, scissors is Metal. So when looking for a suitable career for yourself, it would benefit you to identify the elements involved in a particular position, then determine which element(s) is/are dominant/important, and understand how they correlate to your favourable and unfavourable elements.

Fire-related jobs

Fire represent heat; warmth; illumination; exuberance; beauty.

If you run a restaurant, wait tables in a diner, or are a cafeteria cook, you’re in a Fire industry. In fact, the entire service industry generally falls under the Fire category.

So if you’re manning the make-up counter at a popular outlet, helping people to become a beauty, you’re in a Fire career.

If you deal with computers and electronics — which use electricity, considered to be a form of Fire — then you’re in the Fire business.

If you deal with petrol and other fuels which need to be burned to release and harness their useful energy, sure you’re in a fire-related field.

Among all the five elements, Fire is the “lightest” and go the highest. Therefore by the service element of airplane attendants’ duties, and the amount of fuel needed to fly a plane. As such, if you’re a pilot or airplane attendant, you’re in a Fire-relate career.

Earth-related jobs

Earth can represent: steadfastness, solid dependability, nurturing, trustworthiness.

Pretty much anything that involves physically working with the earth counts:

• Farming
• Pottery makers
• Gardening
• Stone masonry
• Ceramics
• Pottery
• Sculpture
• Marblework

Yang Earth

If you’re in the real estate business, involved in the purchase and sale of land or houses, you’re in the Earth business.

Feng Shui, astrology and Geomancy are also Earth-related fields.

If your business is one that “sells” the feeling of trust or security, as in insurance, this too is Earth-related.

If you deal in antiques, objects that withstand and last through time just as mountains and boulders do, this is also considered an Earth industry.
Yin Earth

Metal-related jobs

The characteristics of Metal: sharp; cutting; sparkling; beautiful; orderly

The actual mining operations are technically Earth-related, the next step of extracting metals from their ores is definitely Metal-related. Therefore, if you’re an industry that produces aluminum, steel, copper, etc, no surprise that you’re in Metal country.
Yang Metal

If you are a goldsmith, a jeweler, or deal in gemstones and diamonds, these are more examples of Metal jobs.

Metal is commonly used to make weapons – swords, daggers, knives, guns; if you produce them, you’re in a Metal-related career. As the users of such weapons, warriors were the enforcers of rule of law back in the day; as such Metal has also come to represent law and order. So if you’re in the legal profession, law enforcement or the military, you’re in a Metal field.

If you collect coins, you’re in a Metal world. And the same field if you’re in finance, stock trading or banking.

Another example of a Metal profession is surgery: after all, surgeons cut into us using sharp Metal scalpels, do they not? However, the medical profession in general, however, is a Wood-related field – can you figure out why?

Water-related jobs

Here you must understand the characteristics of Water which represents intelligence with creativity; always moving; deep and powerful; cleansing.

obvious water-related jobs would be:
• fisherman
• fish rearing
• mineral water bottling
• soft drink industry
• marine biology
• scuba divers
Yang Wood (water fall) and Yin Wood (mist)

water is moving constantly and mobile, Water career:
• trishaw driver
• taxis driver
• tourism
• transportation
• courier services
• haulage

Leveraging the cleansing aspect :
• laundry
• dry cleaning
• maid and cleaning services
• cars cleaners • home maids

Jobs that involve strategic planning, analysis, creativity, innovation and brain power are also Water-based. As usual, it is important to note that in this day and age, most jobs are no longer limited to just one element or another, and instead comprise a mixture of two or more elements

What is the Salt Water Feng Shui Cure?

https://www.knowfengshui.com/the-feng-shui-salt-water-cure/

The role of the salt water cure is to neutralize a specific quality of energy brought by specific negative stars, or feng shui energies. To achieve this effect, the salt water cure is usually applied in combination with several Metal element feng shui cures because the energies of these challenging stars are considerably weakened or even destroyed by the power of the Metal element. This happens because these negative feng shui stars — star 2, star 3, and star 5 — belong to a feng shui element that is weaker than the Metal element (star 2 and star 5 are of the Earth element, while star 3 is of the Wood element)

Most popular feng shui Metal element cures used in addition to the salt water cure are the 6 hollow metal rod wind chime, a metal Wu Lou (Chinese gourd), as well as bells and bowls made of metal. The salt water cure itself has a strong Metal element in it as represented by the six Chinese coins. The use of number six in the six hollow rods wind chime, as well as the six Chinese coins in the salt water cure, strengthens the power of the Metal element because in feng shui, six is considered to be a number with a strong Metal element essence.

What is Alchemy? A Spiritualized Chemistry For Transformation |

https://www.gaia.com/article/what-is-alchemy-a-spiritualized-chemistry-for-transformation

All of life is interconnected. Our minds are the galaxies, our fingers and toes are the planets, and our organs are the stars that bring us light and life. We are each an embodiment of the universe, and therefore have the power to improve our lives, conditions, and environments at every turn.

We achieve these things through prayer and meditation, healing and nutritional remedies, and clear and intentional activities. These are the premises behind esoteric or spiritual alchemy, as distinct from those seeking to make gold, known as exoteric, the obsolete branch of alchemy.

Before Chemistry, Islam, and Christianity, there was Alchemy, a system of pre-science assumptions, beliefs, elixirs, processes, and traditions that purported to heal the sick, transform personal relationships, remove mental afflictions, turn metals into gold, change the dynamics of political power, grow allegiances, open hearts, co-create miracles, and even kill. Alchemy was a catch-all for how to gain control of life and its many foes and challenges.

Originally based on what are now widely considered to be disproven scientific principles, the whole of alchemy remains a beautifully woven fabric of fascinating, illuminating, and transformative ideas derived from magic, physics, mythology, art, astrology, and a variety of religions.

How to Find Your Home’s Feng Shui Facing Direction

fengshuinexus.com/feng-shui-home/how-to-find-home-feng-shui-facing-direction/

Here are several ways to find out the facing direction of a house.

Find out where the most Yang side of the house is (based on the Yin Yang Theory). The Yang side is usually the side that’s most “active”. Meaning, it’s the side where the road is and where most movement occurs. It’s also the side that can gather the most sunlight and Qi energy.

Using the above method should suffice. If not, you can use these other methods as cross reference.

Find out where the backyard is. As the name implies, the backyard should be situated at the back, or the “sitting” direction. The same concept applies for the front yard.

Check the house’s design and orientation. Which side is made to greet guests?

Imagine the house as a person. Which side would be the “face” of the house? Which side would be it’s back?

If your house is the standard conventional type, the above four steps should all produce the same result. If your house has a modern artistic design, then the facing direction can be tricky to find.

One method is to use the apartment door as the facing direction. After all, the front door is the mouth of the house that gathers Qi, isn’t it?

Another method is to use the facing of the entire building as the facing direction. The reasoning for this is that all units are under one roof, and they should all share a single facing direction based on the building.
