Feng Shui


http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/05/feng-shui/

Feng Shui is a traditional Chinese practice prevalent in Asian countries then and now. This Chinese custom is well respected and has followers especially around Chinese communities worldwide. In a person’s point of view, this is creating an arrangement, in and out of the home to make way for good luck and prevent bad luck from coming in. Good qi or good energy flow is encouraged believing that in doing so, it will improve the lives of the dwellers.

Feng Shui is heavily dependent on the Chinese compass for proper placement of your furniture, objects and rooms in the house. The Chinese compass is more or less, similar to a regular compass which directs the person using it to locate North, East, South and West respectively except that, a traditional Chinese compass or a luopan is embedded with formulas needed to conduct Feng Shui. That, aside from other functionalities a loupan has. Feng Shui’s number one goal is to invite good vibes and drive away the bad ones.

There are five main elements in a Feng Shui practice. These are metal, water, wood, earth and fire. According to yin-yang belief, everything should be in perfect balance thus your home will be thoroughly assessed according to the materials used in making your house as well. Feng Shui is a very vast concept that needs to be studied properly. Due to many posers and claimers existing everyday, the art of Feng Shui is now lost in translation and sadly, it is frowned upon by many.

One Response to “Feng Shui”

I strongly agree that Feng Shui is a vast subject and when Feng Shui is properly applied, it can support us to improve all areas of our life in outstanding ways.

However, there are many different styles of Feng Shui and it can be rather confusing as to what’s real. Consequently, I wrote a book titled The Feng Shui Way. I draw this to your attention because it is unique in that it explains the basic premise (without the nonsense) behind each method and demystifies Feng Shui. More information is available at http://www.strategicbookpublishing.com/TheFengShuiWay.html

If you have any questions I am most willing to offer my views on this topic.
