See below for a link to a fun compilation of famous streets around the world that have a wide variety of energies. I’ve been to some of them and others are new to me. As you watch this slide show, notice what draws you in and how you feel. Most likely, you’ll love some areas and feel like you need to retreat from others. In my opinion, it’s all about the energy. Beauty and magic are in the eye (and experience) of the beholder.
I find that I’m drawn to places of solace and beauty. These include places that feel spacious, have many trees and flowers and offer colors and tones that are pleasing to the eye. I retreat from the places that portray hustle and bustle, have lots of electronic lights and billboards and large crowds.
The Five Element System provide a good way to evaluate your likes and dislikes.
Water energy flows and can be tranquil or quite active and disruptive.
Wood energy of plants and trees is lively and uplifting.
Fire energy of people and lights is very active and can feel stressful.
Earth energy of clay, mud and adobe buildings can be comforting and soothing.
Metal energy of bright, white space and lots of stone can bring focus and provide clarity.

As you travel to different places, you might use the Five Element system to help you determine what you like and why. You can also use it to help bring balance to your own space. Balance is different for each person. It depends on where you are in your life and what you want to experience and create for yourself. As a result, each of our spaces should be different and really reflect who you are.
