Is Feng Shui foreign to you?
Does Feng Shui sound foreign to you? Why wouldn’t it, it’s not an every day word that is used in the Western world. What is Feng Shui?
“This is a simple question that can be difficult to answer. Feng shui is an ancient art and science developed over 3,000 years ago in China. It is a complex body of knowledge that reveals how to balance the energies of any given space to assure health and good fortune for people inhabiting it.
Feng means wind and shui means water. In Chinese culture wind and water are associated with good health, thus good feng shui came to mean good fortune, while bad feng shui means bad luck, or misfortune.”
The art and science of Feng shui is, however being used more in the Western world. Stores that you frequent such as Whole Foods and banks such as Chase and many large corporations that you are familiar with use Feng shui in there designing and placement of offices and buildings. Feng shui is not an unknown or mystified technique. Feng shui has been around for over 3000 years and is well known and revered in the eastern world. There is much power in the universal or elemental forces of nature. These elements, which are used in Feng shui are water, fire, metal, wood, and earth. The universal power I am referring to is our inner power, our thoughts and our intentions or energy which is referred to as Chi. When we bring these elements and energies into our living and work space they have the ability to promote health, harmony and prosperity. Have you ever been out in nature and felt a sense of release, a sense of ease, peace and/or comfort? Have you ever sat and looked into a fire and felt those similar feelings? What about when you get into a body of water perhaps a bathtub, a swimming pool, lake or the ocean? It is believed that everything is energy and if natural elements of the universe such as metal and wood or water are brought into our homes, is it possible that they support our energy?
When I conduct a Feng shui consult, I walk around the property of the home or office and look at not only the placement of the front door and surrounding streets, mountains etc., also the placement of furniture, the stove, the bathroom and more are taken into consideration. Perhaps the bed is not in a good position which might be affecting your health or relationships or your stove is not positioned to promote health and prosperity or your bathroom is designed to have your money go down the drain. What are you to do? You do not have to move or remodel your home. By bringing in the supportive elements, colors and cures, Feng shui can balance these areas and provide support. This is a very precise science along with the art of bringing in the elements to support the areas out of alignment.
You can spice up your love life with plants and particular colors in the correct areas of your home, you can boost your career with the proper desk positioning, block your drains from draining dollars from your pockets. Having your entryway and home free of clutter allows the Chi (life force energy) to flow easily and effortlessly through out your home. It will support your health as well, because there is a direct correlation with the nine Feng shui areas in the home and your body.
