The pop quiz for finding your elements within you may help to identify how those elements are within us.
And those elements within may also be represented in what we surround ourselves with in our physical spaces. We surround ourselves with the things that we are most attracted to and our homes, our desk and our closets are a visual representation of who we are and what we like.
Here are some ways in which we can identify those elements.
Wood: Greens, Blues, plants, flowers, actual wood, columnar and pillar shaped items.
Fire: Reds, triangle shapes, cones, pyramids, sunlight, wool, leather, animal products.
Earth: Yellows, earthtones, soil, rectangles, square shapes.
Metal: Whites & pastels, rocks, stones, metals, arches, circles, ovals.
Water: Black, dark colors, glass, crystal, mirrors, assymetrical shapes.
If you want to balance out a room that has a dominant element, the same controlling cycle applies.
If you want bring more of an element into your life you could also choose to wear the associated colors. So take a browse through your closet, which element do you most often wear?
As an example Red may not be a color that for everyone wants to cover themselves in or paint an entire room in. Choosing a red pen or a red journal, or red undergarments can add some spark or fire and melt a bit of metal.
If you find yourself wearing or surrounded by a lot of earthy colors, try adding blue or green throw pillows to the sofa or a blanket to add some pop.
Color and shapes can amuse the eye and add that little something something to your wardrobe and also to your space.
