Throughout our lives, we’ve all been asked ‘Are you a positive person?’ and for most of us, the answer is yes. Positivity is defined as having the tendency to be positive or optimistic in attitude, and it’s something we, as humans, believe in. Having positivity is also about maintaining the balance with the counteracting, opposite feeling, negativity.
In times of hardship, negativity is more commonplace and it’s in those moments that it becomes even more important to embrace positivity and a positive outlook. In Eastern culture, positivity is a functional part of their belief system and it’s something to be encouraged and nurtured.
One of these traditional beliefs can be applied to your garden, and it’s known as Feng Shui, which translates to ‘wind and water.’ According to traditional Chinese beliefs, these elements function as the source of all life energy. This energy is known as chi and these beliefs encourage you to embrace this life energy wherever possible; and because of that, it’s an integral part of creating a Feng Shui area.
For an outdoor space to successfully embody and channel Feng Shui, you need to find the balance of the five elements – Earth, Metal, Water, Wood, and Fire. According to the bagua (the Feng Shui energy map) there are different placements and positioning of these elements, depending on what you’re trying to channel (wealth, love, legacy etc.), and it’s your choice on how to invite those energies in.
