A big part of creating harmony in the home following a Feng Shui consultation is by balancing the five elements - Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal. Adding specific elemental cures using colour, materials, shapes, textures and symbolism are subtle ways to enhance positive energy and drain stars that are not supporting you. Below are some recent photographs I have taken - depicting the different elements. The images on this page are not particularly suitable for adding to your home, they just capture the essence of the elements and show my style of work. If you require an image to balance your home, please contact me and I will find the perfect image for you.
Water surrounds the beautiful Shotley Peninsula, and driving past the Suffolk Food Hall the ever changing river scene is stunningly beautiful ever day. Water energy is found in the North of a property, and is associated with the flow of life and career. Active water is used via fountains to stimulate the auspicious 8 and 9 water stars for wealth, but water symbolism is often used as a cure (via a picture, blue glass, or wavy lines) to calm difficult star combinations, With the Journey ? North sector you have to be very careful about what the symbolism the water pictures you add represent. Still boats, as shown above will halt progress, and on the opposite scale a picture of a great waterfall will cause life to move too fast. The above images are best used where you need a virtual water cure. More imagery to follow!
Wood is my favourite element - as for me it represents both calmness and creativity. It's fascinating seeing the daily changes in the trees as the seasons change. If I could capture the detail of the beauty I see every day, I would have achieved my mission. Wood in Feng Shui is related to the East and South East, It can also be used the South (wood feeds fire) and in more complex Feng Shui analysis is used to balance either excess water or strengthen the fire element in flying star charts. In a more simpler way, tree energy is good for helping water people relax and come up with new ideas.
Fire is located in the South of your home or office and represent fame, recognition, and the future. Fire is hot, bright and vibrant. The peak of the year is the Summer Solstice, but every ten days we have two days of fiery energy. Depending on your DayMaster sign using Four Pillars Astrology, fire will represent different things for different people. For water types it represents wealth.
The Key message I take from fire is sometimes you have to burn things to the ground to rebirth. I have done this twice in my life, it wasn't that pleasant, but I came out for the better. Hence the Phoenix Rising imagery. Also fire in nature is minimal. You see much less red tones naturally than other colours. It is special and comes with a warning tag. Use sparingly!
Earth is all around us and represents grounding, nurturing, stabilising energy in Feng Shui and is located in the South West (relationships) and North East (inner Knowledge and learning). It is a hard topic to photograph, in some ways, but exploring the Bader sett near my home now that the summer foliage has died back has been fascinating. I love walking with no shoes and laying on bare earth very soothing.
I just wanted to tell you that the friend Kathy H whom I was uncertain about actually sent me a text 5 minutes after we had finished talking!!!! So we must have energised the link!!! And your wisdom to help me learn more also is good. I'm meeting her on Saturday, and we'll have a coffee etc.
A beautiful and moving image now graces my wall: layers of vibrant colour alternatively reveal and conceal forms of significance, depicted with emotion and artistry. The abstract quality is such that it is a timeless piece I will always value and enjoy.

Growing up in China, I have always interested in Fengshui. As we were moving to Ipswich, I googled Fengshui consultant locally and that is how I found Rachel. I am so glad that we connected through the email initially. The house move took 9 months, Rachel was so patient, and she offered me advice through the process. I was so excited to meet her the day after we moved in. It provided us with a lot of comfort and guidiance at the new home. With her consultation, we had a much better understanding of the new space. Rachel is very intuitive, she did the dowsing, cleared the geopathic stress by using 'acupuncture'. The ritual she carried out involved all family member, so it was rather special. By using Fengshui principle and combined with our personal astrology, Rachel pointed out where the 'special corners' in our house, for example the wealth, relationship, friends and helpful people etc; She also helped us choose the interior colour, elemental accessories, positive symbolism in art works etc. I am so glad that I have found Rachel. It made us settle in and connect with our new home much quicker. The declutter has given us a much healthier space to live in. Whenever I feel disconnected with our home, I try to use some of the Fengshui she taught us to refresh and cleanse. I am so grateful that I contacted Rachel at the first place.
I asked for Rachels help with a young family member. They were having mental health issues which involved refusing to attend school, withdrawing from friendship groups and showing signs of psychosis. Rachel discussed with me her findings regarding her birth date and time in relation to her specialised work. Together we put a plan in place as I was to help. I carried out her recommendations. She stated that this time would come to an end this Spring and they would be through the part of the chart that was causing the chaos. I am so excited to report that they were again attending school until the lockdown. She is fully interacting with her family and is again part of her friendship group. Due to the lockdown and her now being well she is catching up with the school work she missed and will be ready to start again when the time comes. She is now off all medication which included ADHD and antidepressant prescription drugs. I cannot thank Rachel enough. If you are on the fence regarding her work, don’t be, it will be the best thing you could do for yourself and those you care for.
"Before I got in touch with Rachel, I was at a loss to know what to do. I had bought a flat to rent out in Ipswich, but it attracted the wrong types of tenants. The previous three tenants had either not paid their rent or had left the flat in a very bad state of repair, or both. In effect, I was just chucking money into a big black hole. I wanted to keep the flat, which I would eventually pass on to my son, but I still had the mortgage to pay. After reading about feng shui and the effect it can have, I was keen to find out more. I contacted Rachel and she explained what she intended to do and why. Admittedly, I was a bit sceptical at first, but I was keen to give it a go. Much to my amazement, after a six month rent void, that same week, a potential tenant turned up at the flat. The couple liked what they saw and moved in within two weeks. Much to my relief, they also paid the rent on time. I highly recommend Rachel to anyone in a similar situation."
