REALLY, WHAT IS FENG SHUI?

Feng Shui can be traced back to the ancient civilizations of India, Egypt, and China. Feng Shui is a mix of philosophy, science, and art. It connects us with heaven and earth and creates a balance in our lives. Feng Shui is pronounced “fung schway” and translates as ‘wind and water’. The flow of these two life-creating elements creates the essential energy (known as ‘Chi’ 氣), which forms the basis of Feng Shui.

Feng Shui is all about understanding the way you interact with your environment. This ancient art and science can be applied to your home, work environment, garden, business and where you like to spend most of your time. Having an understanding and appreciation of your environment is essential in Feng Shui, in order to change things that influence you most, and therefore change the way you feel. Good wealth, health, and happiness are the main tenants in Feng Shui. Whatever the challenges are in your life, it can manifest into the environment surrounding you. As a result, positive flowing chi and positive symbolism are used to change, remove or enhance the desired energy you are looking for.

What is Chi?

Chi is the vital energy, which forms the essence of all materials. Chi is the air we breathe; the earth’s magnetic field, cosmic radiation, and the sun’s light. Chi is our spirit. Chi is luck; it underlines all these things and more. Both physical and metaphysical, Chi is the nourishing force of the heart, growth, and development of the heavens, earth, and humanity; it is also called life breath. Most importantly, Chi moves. It is the perpetual process of change. Chi accumulates, dispenses, expands, and condenses. It moves fast, slow, in and out, up and down. Chi meanders and spirals. It flows along straight, angular, and curved pathways. It rides the wind, and it is retained in water. We are all products of and subject to Chi’s enormous power.
