FENG SHUI is part of Chinese medicine whereby health can be restored  and maintained in a balanced, peaceful environment. Learn more about Feng Shui and the basics of classical Chinese Five Elements medical theory in my book Taoist Feng Shui.

2024 is the year of the strong and powerful Dragon. Dragon is impressive, so create luck in your environment by making your home as beautiful and impressive as you can. And dress to impress.

Appearances matter to Dragon, so first impressions are important. Books will be judged by their covers. By completion of Dragon year, it will be clear what was reality or what was illusion. Either way, the illusion of looking the part is an aspect of Dragon’s power.

Boost energy and start a new cycle by painting one room in your home during spring of this Dragon year. Paint the room that is most in need of new energy and that needs to look cleaner.

2024 is a Wood year. Time for growth and to take action, like a plant thriving in springtime. If you did not beautify your home last year in cozy Water Rabbit year 2023, do it now in Dragon year.

My interview about Feng Shui in Dragon year on NBC California Live:


My interview about the Five Elements in Reader’s Digest:



To start Feng Shui where you live, first clear clutter in all rooms, especially closets and the garage. Then clear clutter and maintain the landscape or property outdoors. This alone will clear out old energy and give you room to breathe.

If you start outside your home or work place, determine the color that’s best for exterior paint. Walk around the block and look at the colors of the neighboring buildings. Then paint your place the color that looks the best with the others. Matching or blending colors will creates harmony among neighbors and improves everyone’s property.

Indoors, the energy of any room can be transformed by adding a coat of fresh paint. If all rooms of your home have white or ivory walls, all white is too much of the element Metal that can lead to arguing. So paint one room with color, or add a color backsplash, or trim a room with color. Don’t know which room to paint first? Paint the room most in need of being refreshed. The main focus is on the kitchen in this Wood Dragon year so you can start in the kitchen if you don’t know where to begin.

Each room of your home correlates to the five Taoist elements of Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood:

FIRE/HEART/LIVING ROOM – In Chinese medicine, the element Fire is represented by the heart. The living room is the heart of the home. Your living room is best with accents of the bright and lively Fire colors red, purple, orange, and all shades of red. Bright accents stimulate conversation and activity. Strong Fire brings passion, energy, and creativity. Fire is hot and expanding energy.

EARTH/STOMACH/DINING ROOM – In Chinese medicine, the element Earth is the stomach. The dining room is where we eat and digest food. The dining room is best in earthen tones of gold, terra cotta, or other soft yin colors. Red walls (Fire) in a dining area are too stimulating and people eat too fast. Strong Earth brings stability, balance, and patience. Earth energy is grounding.

METAL/LUNGS/BEDROOM – In Chinese medicine, the element Metal is the lungs. The bedroom is where we sleep and breathe deeply while resting. Best bedroom colors are white, cream, and soft pastels. Avoid bright big prints on bedding and drapery, especially in children’s bedrooms. Colorful prints are too yang and not restful. Strong Metal brings logic, clarity, and intelligence. Note that Metal energy can be unyielding.

WATER/KIDNEYS/BATHROOM – In Chinese medicine, the element Water is the kidneys. In the bathroom, paint this room in a soft, quiet, and calm color for peaceful elimination of waste and for soothing bathing or showering. Light blue is fine, or a soft pastel color that you enjoy and find relaxing. Strong Water brings wisdom, peace, and serenity. Water is cold and free flowing energy.

WOOD/LIVER/KITCHEN – In Chinese medicine, the element Wood is the liver. Wood is used in a kitchen to feed the cooking fire. The kitchen must be kept very clean because this is where food is prepared, so white walls are good. But green accents or a plant are recommended to introduce the Wood element into this Wood room. Strong Wood brings enthusiasm and spirituality. Wood energy brings growth, especially in 2024 WOOD Dragon year.
