Bamboo has always been included in traditional Chinese Gardens. It has been long considered in Asia as a plant of Good Fortune.
Chinese Gardens provided a setting for man to communicate with nature and honor his spiritual essence.
The Chinese used plants as spiritual symbols, and the Bamboo Plant represents strength and flexibility. The bamboo plant can grow in poor conditions and limited light.
Lucky Bamboo is used in indoor settings, where it is able to
thrive on an office desk, living areas, covered porches, and especially bathrooms. Because The Lucky Bamboo plant is hearty and versatile, it is considered to be the perfect symbol of The Wood Element.
A Lucky Bamboo arrangement can represent a powerful balance of The Five Elements, representing:
The Wood Element: Green, tall, vertical stalks
The Water Element: Blue or black container
The Earth Element: Soil or stones
The Metal Element: Metal coins symbolize money
The Fire Element: Red ribbon "ignites" positivity
A gift of a Feng Shui Bamboo in a beautiful Lucky Bamboo arrangement is the gesture of bringing Good Fortune to the recipient.
Chinese Bamboo Flutes
Chinese Bamboo Flutes are classic Feng Shui Cures for
heavy overhead beams. Hang 2 Bamboo Flutes over a beam to uplift
the energy of oppressive, confining beams, particulary if the beam is dark.
We had a large dark wood beam that divided our dining room from our living room. We painted the heavy beam white, and completely changed the energy in our living area to lighter and brighter!
