The five-element pagoda is a beautiful item made of heavy brass. It is finished with a gold polish and empowered by the lovely tree of life. For serious feng shui practitioners, this is the first item to be placed in the home or office.
Most people who have heard even a little about feng shui tend to concentrate on the wealth aspect. They tend to purchase a money toad and then wonder why it doesn’t work. Feng shui is the study of energy (chi) movement through our dwellings and grounds.
The energies can be either auspicious or inauspicious. An analogy would be blood flow in the body.
Blood circulating from the heart carries oxygen and nutrients to the cells and the blood returning to the heart is deoxygenated and has waste products that have to be carried out of the body.
Good chi carries positive energies, good luck and health. Waste chi is stagnant, toxic and dangerous.
Both occur as a normal course of living in the third dimension. It all circulates around the earth and sometimes the bad, or inauspicious, chi comes in and wreaks havoc in our lives.
The five-element pagoda helps in invoking the blessings of heaven and the earth. It is made in such a way that its shape represents the five elements, which form the basis of feng shui.
The bottom of the item is the earth element, which strengthens the metal on top of it. The next shape is water that strengthens wood and fire on the top and gives it a conical shape that symbolises the flame. The interior is hollow, with a slot-base cover. The idea is to place soil from around your house along with mantras and crystals to effectively lock the energy and transform all the harmful energies before they reach you.
If you know how to use the five-element pagoda effectively, it could prove to be a great tool for protecting your home.
While some items placed inside the pagoda could be personal, there is one thing that must always be included and that is dirt.
Some dirt from your house effectively locks up and brings the negative energy of the house.
You can add a crystal to the five-element pagoda and charge up the crystal by holding it in your hands and concentrating to repel all the negative energy. Just add a red ribbon to it and it is set to guard your house efficiently.
The five-element pagoda is also a perfect cure for the yellow star that can result in accidents or loss of money in your life. Black star, also known as the sickness star, is also suppressed through this.
The five-element pagoda can be placed in the afflicted sectors as it activates the lucky stars and also the flying stars.
Along with the five-element pagoda, the tree of life is used in many spiritual traditions around the globe. This tree symbolises life and the branches of the tree make you reach for heaven while the roots make a good link with the earth. The tree is also known as a symbol of strength, friendship and encouragement.
The six-inch five-element pagoda, along with the tree of life, is the best combination to be used by an individual.
