Wearing feng shui jewelry can create energetic balance and healing in your aura by using the five elements of fire, earth, metal, water and wood gemstones.
The five elements of feng shui are a reflection of the actions of nature. You can discover which of the five elements you are by the year you were born. Each one of these elements have traits that are part of the characteristics of your personality.
In feng shui there is a depiction of an element wheel with the five elements moving in a particular order. In addition to wearing gemstones that replicate your personal five element essence, there is also an element that comes before your element on the wheel which has the capability to strengthen and nourish you. There is also an element that comes after your element which has the ability to tone down attributes that have become too strong and are creating an imbalance within your personality.
Many people use crystal gemstones to bring about energetic and positive changes, but knowing and using your personal elemental feng shui gemstone brings a deeper level to it.

In nature plants and trees absorb water. If your water element is too strong, and you are spending more time being reflective and not enough time being active and engaged, then also wear wood element gemstones since wood will absorb the excess water of your personality and help to balance you.
Wood Element Jewelry

Like the roots of a tree, they are strong people with the ability to be upward thinking, earnest, resourceful and determined. They have a champions mindset and are natural leaders with a sense of chivalry. Just as a tree can be majestic, they believe in dreaming large.

If your wood personality has developed into any negative qualities such as bossiness, overly competitive, hyper-sensitive or a disapproving nature, then be sure to also wear feng shui jewelry made of fire element gemstones to help burn off the negativity and balance your personality.
