What is Feng Shui?
As of Wikipedia
Feng shui or fengshui (pinyin: fēngshuǐ, pronounced [fə́ŋ.ʂwèi]) is a Chinese philosophical system of harmonizing everyone with the surrounding environment.
Feng shui is an ancient art and science developed over 3,000 years ago in China. It is the art of knowing how to create balance. The balance is found by giving energy its proper space in your life.
Energy needs a certain flow – and there is a definite art to Feng Shui for developing the flow of energy. In your home this art is done by moving ordinary items and aligning them so that your surroundings reflect harmony to you and allowing energy to flow.
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. Feng Shui is based on the Taoist vision and understanding of nature, particularly on the idea that the land is alive and filled with Chi, or energy.
Using the concept of heaven and earth, Feng Shui takes what’s known as wind water and by using the life force (qi or chi), creates positive environments for homes or offices. The Chi actually has six parts to it, all based on weather terminology – light versus darkness, warm versus cold and rain versus wind.
Using this popular belief, that Chi creates positive environments, many buildings and homes in China are built with Feng Shui as a focus and are happy, successful places to live in and work at. It has also gained popularity outside of China with many western homes now applying this simple philosophy.
The reason Feng Shui works is based on the principle that we should be aware of how structures impact nature and we should work to keep a harmonious relationship with nature.
