Bring The Fire Elements To Your Home

Looking at a plan of your home the fire area is the area of your home that faces south. Fire is represented by very warm rich colours such as dark oranges and reds. Think of looking in to the centre of a roaring fire to visualize the colours that are good in this area. Purple is also an excellent colour for the fire area as purple is often thought of as the deepest shade of red. The shapes that are symbolic of fire are triangular, pyramid shapes.

If you have ornaments or sculpures that are triangular in shape then it is good to place these in this area, if you haven’t you can easily make the shape of a pyramind by arranging a grouping of two smaller ornaments and one taller one together. In Le Plantis, in the summer, we group three plants together in this area, a tall plant with spiky leaves in the centre and two slightly shorter plants on either side. Looking at the plants they look like the shape of a roaring fire. Candles also make excellent decorations in this area of the home, if you are using candles try and ensure you use tall pointed ones, or ones that are pyramid shaped and buy candles in deep shades of red and purple.

Fire is supported in the creative cycle by wood so if you are wanting to enhance your self esteem or self confidence bring elements of wood in to the room. We are very fortunate that our wood store is right outside this area of the house and so I always ensure that we have a pile of logs in the corner of the room. In the same way that wood supports fire, fire is destroyed by water so try and minimise anything that represents water in this area of the home, this can include physical water like fountains, pictures of water, mirrors and curved, free flowing sculpures especially if these are made out of glass.

Decorate this area of your home in deep reds, oranges and purple. When decorating this area of your home try and use the best quality material you can afford, if you cannot afford expensive fabric then go for fabric that looks expensive.

Candles should be in abundance in this area, use tall pointed candles where possible and ensure they are deep red and purple in colour.

Pictures should be representative of fire and should ideally be hung in wooden frames as wood supports fire. Good pictures are those that represent a hot summers day. Use colours that are oranges, reds, yellows and browns, or those that show sand or desert scenes. Where possible pictures should be hung portrait as opposed to landscape style.

Minimise water in this area of your home. This includes physical water, pictures showing water, mirrors, and objects made out of glass. Crystals should also be used sparingly in this area unless one is used for a specific cure.
