In the book Feng Shui 2021, Dr. Yang says that the best time to plant is in spring. He further states that if you have the correct place for planting, then by the end of summer you will have a flourishing garden. He goes as far as to say that it is extremely important not to plant any vegetables in the summer. In this article, we will discuss why it is important to plant in the winter and what vegetables to plant during the cold months of the year.
It is important to understand that the primary purpose for which you are gardening is to enhance your health. However, there are certain Chinese beliefs that govern how you should place things in your garden. In the west, people do not put as much importance on location. After all, who wants to put a garden in front of the window looking out on some drab gray sky? In China, the location has always been important. In fact, it is one of the primary elements of Feng Shui.
According to Chinese culture, water is the most important element and you should place the largest amount of water where water will flow into. In your garden, water should be flowing constantly and will prevent the presence of stagnant water. Stagnant water will become a breeding ground for all kinds of insects and mold. You want to avoid this at all costs.
In addition to water, the location of a structure, whether it is a home or office, is also an important Feng Shui element. The direction that the structure is facing should be the south. The south contains the water element, which makes the place inhospitable to mosquitoes. If the sun is shining on the building, then the south is the ideal location. If it is raining, then the direction of the building’s location will change, and it would be better to prevent direct exposure to the sun so as to keep away from the rainy season.
You need to determine what the water element represents in your garden. The water symbolizes wealth, health and power. You should make sure that there are lots of trees in your garden so that they can create shade over the area and prevent direct exposure to the sun. Along with this, you should be aware that lots of water and plants will help attract birds. Therefore, if you want to attract birds into your Feng Shui location, you should place bird baths in appropriate locations.
The other five elements of the Feng Shui 2100 site are wood, fire, metal, water and rock. All these elements have their own significance and effects when placed in the correct location. The location of each element can change depending on which part of the mind the place is linked to. The five Feng Shui principles can be used to practice self-improvement. To enhance self-improvement, you need to practice these principles in every day life by keeping in mind the correct locations for each of the five Feng Shui elements.
