The element wood represents the birth of new life and renewal in general. Wood also represents spring and fresh air, and is not only one of the main feng shui elements but also a very easy to use as a remedy. Wood offers many different options and ways to be used at the same time than it looks warm and beautiful wherever it is added.

According to the bagua map, wood represents the east and southeast areas of a house or work space. These areas symbolize creativity, children, travel and helpful people. Therefore, if you are having problems concerning any of these life areas, you should check if there is a lack of wood within the house area that represents it.

Wood is represented by all shades of green as well as by plants and flowers. Therefore, whenever you need to add wood to a space or area, you can do so, for example, by adding any green object to it or painting the walls in light green. You can also place plants in strategic spots which could not only add wood but also attract chi.

In feng shui, wood is not only used as a cure and in order to achieve harmony, but also to purify the chi energy. Wood renews and brings agility to the flow of Chi within any space, bringing new life and movement to everything which surrounds it. Whenever there is a dark corner or unused area within an environment where chi doesn’t flow, placing a plant at it would fix the problem.

Wood can be very helpful whenever a renewal is needed. If your life or house needs a change and you need new things into your life, wood would be the right solution. But, although wood is a very positive element, you should always remember that it should never be used in an excessive amount or the balance of the elements would be lost. Every element should be used in the needed amount according to the area where it is and the amount of other elements present in it, you should never place too much of any of them or it would cause problems rather than bringing harmony.
