Communication and Transformation
The holidays are a time when we reach out, send greetings and get in touch with old friends. Its’ also a time when Nostalgia can lead to feeling blue. Whether its thoughts of the past or opening lines of communication, navigating emotions can hone our skills in letting go and cultivating compassion.
In Feng Shui the Metal element represents communications and control. Primarily found in a solid state, it can also soften to be reshaped and moulded. Essentially it has to ‘let go’ to transform.
Metal is synonymous with social media, high speed internet and electronics. Its colours are white the metallic colours; gold, silver and bronze. In the home it appears in appliances, computers, fixtures, tools and various furnishings such as lamps. It is symbolized by archways and spiral shapes.
Metal can shift from liquid state to a solid, and has an alchemical and mysterious nature. As such it speaks to the psyche and as the element of communication, it can be moderator of thoughts and energy.

- Create archways with Christmas lights: A reminder that we don’t have to be in control of everything and that flow is essential.
- Wrapping gifts in metallic colours creates the alchemy of metal with a sense of surprise and surprise.
- Reconnecting to old friends and especially forgiving transgressions of the past is a gift for everyone. The word ‘for give’ is to allow ourselves time, leading to compassion for self and then others.
- Gift spiral shapes or decorate baking with them. A spiral reminds us that we can navigate going in and out of all situations with ease.
