In feng shui, metal is the element you don’t often hear much discussion about. Most often metal is regarded as a cure for negative energies, especially earth afflictions such as the 5 Yellow and Black 2 that cause both illness and financial difficulties.
When times are difficult, it’s easy to withdraw and slow down. Over time, the lack of vitality in our own personal energy can often be seen reflected in our homes. The lights are off more often, and the house is more still and quiet. Once stagnation sets in around your home, you may also experience a rise in aches and pains and you may feel less energetic, and maybe even depressed.
