Feng Shui has become quite popular with the western world in the last decade or two. It is based on thousands of years of ancient Chinese wisdom, and is still practiced by many of our Asian counterparts. It is a way of blending your life into seasonal changes and take advantage of the most optimal way to live our lives. Feng Shui can be used through all parts of our life, from enhancing our house or unit to enhancing our relationships. Strongly believed by practitioners to help us in all areas of our life, it is believed the more you practice this art, the better your luck, wisdom and prosperity. The basis of Feng Shui is to alter or use your environment to feel at peace with the universe. By using these principles your luck, life and health your life should be much better. Many buildings being built today incorporate aspects or some principles of Feng Shui.
Principles of Feng Shui. In Chinese ‘Feng’ means wind and ‘Shui’ means water, and the ancients saw these two elements as the link between heaven and earth. Also to the believers, these elements also carry the invisible life force called Ch’i. Ch’i literally means ‘the breath of life’ and to ensure abundance and good fortune it was important to link both flow of the wind and water with the interaction of land and buildings. Ch’i works on all levels within us and with Mother Nature. It is believed if ch’i is stagnant in us, we will be but a poor and sick relation to those that can use their ch’i well. By using our life force in the proper way, it enables us to live a full life with prosperity, but if your ch’i get stuck or has limited movement, our life will reflect this. The Chinese believe that there were three kinds of luck in life, the luck you make yourself (Ren Choy) and the luck that was given by heaven at birth (T’ien Choy) and lastly the earth luck (Ti Choy). We cannot change the Heaven luck but we can certainly change the Ti Choy and the Ren Choy. The ancient Chinese positioned houses and palaces in the most optimum places so both the luck and life energy would flow the best. When that was restricted or blocked so was their luck in life. Many things such as which direction your door faces and if your front door and back door allowed for the energy or ch’i to flow straight through and away from you become very important. These are only the basis of a few of their principles. There are many good books of Feng Shui for those that would like more information, remember keep your Ch’i sharp and your life will move, but have it blocked and so will your life.
