This enchanting 5 Element Feng Shui Hulu Tassel comprises a string of 5 Hulu carved from 5 types of crystal to represent the 5 elements: Obsidian (Water), Aventurine (Wood), Rose Quartz (Fire), Gold Sand (Earth), Clear Quartz (Metal). This is a powerful cure to absorb and contain all the negative energies, especially sickness chi, in its surroundings.
The 5 elements are the basis of Feng Shui principles. The order of mutual generation among the five elements is that water generates wood, wood generates fire, fire generates earth, earth generates metal and metal generates water. In this way, the generation is circular and endless and is the fundamental of Feng Shui that powers up good luck.
The Hulu (or Wu Lou), often associated with Sau, the longevity God, is a well-known symbol of good health and longevity. It is said to contain the nectar of immortality and has the power to absorb the sickness energy, storing it in its endless bottom in order not to let the sickness chi hurt you. Many generations of Chinese invite this special gourd into their homes not only for longevity and good health but also to ward off bad chi and promote good fortune. Obsidian is a perfect crystal for you if your personal self-esteem and confidence need a boost.
Obsidians are also known as the Mirror Stone that expands one’s consciousness. Obsidian is a very protective stone and is excellent for blocking out and dissolving negative energies, thus protecting you against evil intentions. Obsidians are also effective at fighting stress and depression; promoting the release of grievances and acceptance of the past.
Aventurine is referred to by many as the all-purpose healing stone and some have called it the “Healer of the Heart and the Soul”. It is used for enhancing recovery of physical disorders, soothing the hearts, balancing emotions, calming the mind, and easing anxiety. Green in color, Aventurine promotes clarity of mind, helps you to focus and find creative solutions when you’re feeling overwhelmed by problems.
Rose Quartz is the most desirable of all quartz and is associated with love, romance, and relationships. Widely known as the “Love Stone”, Rose Quartz is most favored for its ability in speeding up the process for those seeking true love, mending broken relationships, and jazzing up your existing romance life. Rose quartz is also reputed to help with the comprehension of love, restores the love of self as well as love for others, and heals old emotional wounds while developing self-appreciation and love.
Gold Sand Stone, also known as Venus Stone, is considered the “wish-fulfilling stone” in Indian culture and helps ward off evil spirits and negative energies. It brings opportunities, wisdom, good luck, and wealth to anyone who wears it.
Clear Quartz has very strong powers of protection against anyone who doesn’t mean you well. It is a pure and powerful energy source that has the ability to transmit and receive energy. In transmission, it can amplify and focus the positive energy. In receiving, it can store energy, dispel any negativity, and can be charged or “programmed” into specific healing energy for later use. Clear Quartz is therefore used as an excellent aid in healing meditation therapy to purify the mind, body, and spirit for balanced emotions and clarity of thoughts. Because of this special attribute, Clear quartz has the ability to enhance the energies of other gemstones and natural crystals when placed near them.
Besides being a fabulous accessory, having the 5 Element Feng Shui Hulu Tassel near you is a simple and effective way to experience the powerful protective and healing vibrations of the Hulu symbol as well as each and every crystal. Hang it in your car, home, or workplace, or pop it in your bag to enjoy greater happiness, improved health, increased wealth, more success, and infinite fulfillment into your life.

What the Wu Lou symbolizes and its Application in Symbolism Feng Shui:
Another symbol of longevity that also brings an abundance of divine blessings that can be found in many Chinese homes today is the Wu Lou. The Wu Lou or the bottle gourd or the “calabash” is a powerful traditional symbol of longevity, good health, prosperity, and an abundance of blessings.
The shape of a Wu Lou is believed to be a representation of Heaven and Earth united in miniature. Displaying a Wu Lou in and around the home is a good thing to have to enhance one’s Feng Shui. Many deities like Sau Sing Kung from the Fuk Luk Sau and Li T’ieh Kuai from the 8 Immortals, and sometimes the Laughing Buddha carry this wonderful item with them.
The authentic Wu Lou is made of the gourd fruit plucked from trees, the flesh inside carefully removed and then dried. In ancient times, the Wu Lou is used to store water or potions used during traveling and expeditions. Because of Wu Lou’s role in keeping the travelers alive, it was given the name the “giver of life” and hence became a symbol of good health. The Wu Lou is also believed to contain the elixir of health, vitality, and immortality. In Chinese mythology, the Wu Lou is often used by Taoist monks and deities to suck and bottle up evil spirits into it, preventing them from doing harm. Hence the Wu Lou is a powerful Feng Shui cure to absorb negative chi of its surroundings. You can use as many Wu Lous as you like in your home to ward off bad chi and promote good fortune.
