What Exactly Is The Definition of ‘Feng Shui’?
Chances are you may have heard or read something about ‘How to Feng Shui’ or ‘About Feng Shui’ on television, or in a magazine.
But if you thought Feng Shui was a simple matter of ‘rearranging furniture in your sitting room’ or ‘buying more plants and aquariums to dot around your house’, then think again.
There’s a lot more to Feng Shui than meets the eye, and many positive life-enhancing benefits of applying it in every area of your life.
In fact, Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese system of aesthetics (originating in the mountainous south western region of China during the Han Dynasty (200 B.C. – 200 A.D.), which uses the laws of both Heaven (astronomy) and Earth (geography) to help improve life your by receiving positive qi.
In traditional Chinese culture, qi (also chi or ch’i) is an active force which forms part of any living thing, and is often translated as “energy flow”.
It’s a very profound skill (and actually a branch of Chinese medicine) which can make an enormous positive difference to your life – if the chi is circulating healthily within your universe.
How Feng Shui Creates Harmony And Wellbeing
In Your Life And Environment…
- Feng Shui is variously pronounced either ‘fong shoy’ or ‘fung schway’, depending on the Chinese regional dialect. The literal translation for ‘feng’ is ‘wind’ and ‘shui’ is ‘water’.
- The purpose of Feng Shui is to create a sense of harmony in your environment by harnessing the qualities of these two natural elements in a metaphoric sense.
- Feng Shui is very helpful in living a prosperous and healthy life either avoiding or blocking negative energies that might otherwise have bad effects
- One of the purposes of Feng Shui is to assess and survey accurately the strengths and weaknesses of any property and then make practical changes which either strengthen, harmonise or protect it.
- Which is why Feng Shui is also used to orient buildings—often spiritually significant structures such as tombs, but houses and other buildings— in what’s known as an “auspicious manner.“
- Depending on the type of Feng Shui being used, an ‘auspicious site’ could be determined by reference to local features such as bodies of water, stars, or a compass.
- In reality, this means being aware of how Chi energy is flowing, not just within the home but how it also approaches it. Which is why locating your home in a well-protected yet energising location will provide the best benefits for you and your family.
- Just one of the many positives of allowing Feng Shui to become an active part of your day-to-day life…
But There’s ONE Big Problem…
The benefits Feng Shui can provide are clear to see. However, with so many books, magazines and television programmes on the subject, it can seem rather overwhelming, especially if you’re new to it all…
But as I mentioned before, true Feng Shui is not just a case of moving furniture to a certain place, or installing water tanks (water features) or plants and trees in your home or office.
This is the ‘chop suey Feng Shui’ introduced to the West some 30 years ago, and has little to do with the authentic approach which can be traced back to the Imperial Courts of China and beyond.
