Ancient eastern science that helps one understand and change
the nature of their environment in order to help improve
the balance of Chi energy and enhance their lives. Feng
Shui is a Chinese term meaning "Wind and Water" and is pronounced
"Fung Schway" and has been practiced for over
three thousand years. The goal of Feng Shui practitioners
was to locate "auspicious sites" for people to build homes.
Auspicious Site meaning a location where the vital Chi energy
flowed in a manner that was harmonious and supportive of
human life. Ancient practitioners were brought to assess
the land and interpret the language of the mountains, valleys,
rivers, fields. This language is the nature of the Chi energy
emitted and flowing through these environments. Every feature
and condition of an area effects the flow of energy or mood
of that environment. The Principles of Feng Shui are used
to not damage this flow or attempt to improve it.
The Western World presents us with existing scenarios, buildings
and structures already built. The role of Feng Shui here
is to help improve our working and living spaces and maximize
health prosperity and happiness. It is very much like the
idea of interior design and reasons to apply Feng Shui are
usually very similar to the reasons why we wish to renovate.
The idea of Feng Shui is that in changing our environment,
we are trying to creates balance and harmony in your home/workplace
and in turn, your relationships, health and finances. People
experience happier, healthier, more prosperous lives when
their home and work environments are harmonious.
Feng Shui describes this through the concept of Chi energy.
Where all the objects around us effect the level and flow
of Chi in a room. However from a more physical point of
view the balancing of a room simply involves a degree of
common sense. For example keeping a room neat and tidy is
the first step in creating a comfortable living environment.
From an Eastern point of view this allows the Chi energy
to easily flow through the room rather than creating blockages
and stifling areas of unease. It is similar to the idea
that spending your time outside on a beautiful sunny day
is so much more relaxing and energizing than spending it
cooped up in a windowless room. The energy you feel from
the sun is directly related to Chi energy. By balancing
the Chi energy in our homes through the principles of Feng
Shui you are able to create Chi enriched environments to
improve the way you feel which in turn improves your health,
prosperity and happiness.
Feng Shui principles (from a Western perspective) can often
simply be seen as a set of guidelines to help you re-design
or decorate your living space so that it is pleasing to
the eye and emits a feeling of comfort and vitality
