Welcome to My Favorite Things! Each month, we highlight products to help you create a holistic lifestyle that inspires and nurtures you, so that you can be happier and feel supported.
For March, our theme is 5 Ways to Bring the Earth Element into Your Spaces. The Earth element is about self-care, nourishment and stability. Be sure to listen to our most recent podcast, Feng Shui and the Earth Element, for more about the Earth element!
EARTHY YELLOW RUG
I love this Distressed Rococo Wool Rug in Horseradish by West Elm. Although a square shape is slightly more earthy, this rectangular rug has a subtle large square pattern.

Kuan Yin is the bodhisattva of compassion. A bodhisattva devotes her entire being to supporting the enlightenment of others. For me, she exemplifies the Earth element.
I have a Kuan Yin statue in an Earth gua of my desk (in the Relationship area) to remind me to have compassion for myself and for others. This keeps my Earth element in balance!

Satya is truly an amazing woman, and her jewelry is such a beautiful way to bring spirituality, intention and change into your everyday life.
This mala is created with Fancy Jasper. "Tranquility is within your grasp. Fancy jasper encourages gentleness, ease of mind and repairs that which is broken to a state of wholeness. Wear this Mala, a traditional necklace of 108 beads, as a reminder that when you let go, you achieve peace." This is a wonderful way to bring the Earth element into your personal qi space.
In general, Fancy Jasper is a wonderful way to add focus, creativity, and grounding to bring some Earth element into your spaces.

"Jizo is one of the most beloved figures of Buddha, Buddhism and is the protector of children, expectant mothers, travelers, and most significantly, of deceased children. It is told that Jizo hides children beneath his robes to protect them from demons and other such evils."
A spiritual statue, like with Kuan Yin above, can bring Earth element into our spaces. The weight provides stability, and I really love Jizo for family homes.
