What is Feng Shui Anyway?
Feng Shui is using the elements of nature in your environment to create balance and harmony in your life, your home, and your business.
In ancient China, only emperors and nobility were able to practice Feng Shui. It was known only to a handful of scientists commissioned to maintain health, wealth, and the power of the court. All Feng Shui information was forbidden to commoners and if found in their possession, it was confiscated and they were dealt with harshly. Today, Feng Shui is available to everyone.
Feng Shui can help create an environment that will attract prosperity, health and vitality, and fulfilling relationships. Many people do not understand that the influence of their environment is at work 24 hours a day, every week of their lifetime. The flow of energy that surrounds you greatly influences whether you are achieving your goals or blocking your dreams. You are a living, breathing, energy field. Your environment is part of that field. You can change your life and level of happiness by changing the energy around you in your environment.
NOT ALL FENG SHUI IS ALIKE
Feng Shui is not a religion. It is a way of creating balance in your environment, such as your home and office. It is balance created by the five elements of nature: fire, earth, metal, water, and wood. It is about activating a positive flow of energy and neutralizing the negative energy so your home and office feels comfortable and life flows better. It is a way of balancing the environment so that people can enjoy healthier and more prosperous lives.
There are many types of Feng Shui, however many of them being practiced today are based on superstition rather than science. They are based on mysticism and are nothing more than a way to sell trinkets, rather than balance the surroundings that affect your life. New Age Feng Shui, (Black Hat Feng Shui, or Western Feng Shui and BTB) are all ineffective long term. Unfortunately, this is the Feng Shui that is most frequently practiced in the US.
The science of Feng Shui is very exact; Feng Shui is only Feng Shui if a compass is used. If not, it is guess work, mysticism, or decorator fantasy. Today, even home designers are using Feng Shui as a catch phrase to attract customers, however true principles of Feng Shui and home design often do not compliment each other. True Feng Shui requires a compass.
Each month the energy in your home changes in each compass area. It is a simple task to enhance and activate the areas of prosperity, new opportunities, relationships and good health. It is also important to diminish or cure the negative, dense energies of illness, conflict, violence, theft and disaster.
That’s why I have put these all together for you in my monthly Feng Shui Newsletter. Each month I include a detailed description of the changing energies, where they reside in your home for the month, and exactly what you can place in those areas to enhance or diminish the affect of the energy on you and your family.
