When you are in such a natural place as this, it is easy to feel the relating, still, strong, and majestic energies of mountains. It is also easy to see the feng shui “form, shape, and flow” that we’re always trying to assign to our man-made environments. There’s nothing at a right angle or synthetic here, and it somehow magically feels so good to us. It’s definitely something to think about when you are bringing some new-fangled material or object into your home. Perhaps for every man-made item we add to our environments we lose a bit of that “aaahh,” relaxing mood, and inner stillness that the still, clean, mountain energy brings.
The mountain is the symbol (one of the 9 traditional cures) for the Skills and Knowledge Gua in feng shui. Its energy about being still, being calm, seeking inner guidance, and overall stability. The opposite of the traditional cure of a “moving object” if that helps you. It also is all about the energy of the earth element.
Are there any other places to have a mountain symbol besides the skills and knowledge gua? The relationship gua (farthest back on the right from when you come through the door) might need one, as it is also governed by earth element. You might also use its energies for creativity and children (half way back on the right) and helpful people (the far front right area upone entering through the door) as earth “gives life to” the metal which governs them. You might also simply add a picture of a mountain behind you at your desk for strength (and stability,) or near your bed – especially if you find yourself not able to sleep well.
Take a look around and see if earth element and mountain symbol is something that you could use a little bit more of. You can use a calendar picture or something printed off the internet if you’ve got nothing else. Then let me know what stables out in your life.
