what's feng shui
Feng shui??? What's that? Many people are stumped as to what that is. Oh, they know that if you take the advice of feng shui experts and all, it'll be good for you in many aspects such as your lifestyle and business. But what is it actually?
Well, in simple terms, it means wind-water. Huh??? You are definitely confused now. Basically, it's an ancient Chinese practice of placement and arrangement of space to achieve harmony with the environment. Qi or air is the life force energy. Feng shui determines the energy quality and flow within space and its positive and negative impact with the people.
HOW DOES FENG SHUI WORK?
Even if you do not know anything about feng shui or do not practice it, it's possible to read the patterns around you. Improving your environment should naturally improve your well being. If you are making a feng shui adjustment while harboring a strong objection to making a change, it does undermine the positive intent. Thus, it's actually a consultative process to identify your needs and meeting them takes into account your budgetary, cultural and stylish preferences.
You do not have to place items that you feel you do not have resonance with. For example, it does not mean that you have to place Asian artifacts in your home to attract good feng shui. While it's not necessary to understand the workings of remedy for feng shui to be effective, it's definitely helpful to apply a recommendation with positivism and as beautifully as possible. For example, for me, I like the statue of Buddha so I put it in the middle of the shelf in the living room as it gives me the feeling that god is smiling down on me and it will get better in my life.
Each feng shui solution is unique as it results from unique individuals and properties. But they can be broadly categorized.
Position - it depends on the arrangement of site, on site, within site. How does energy arrive and flow to and within the structure. How does energy leave?
Yin and yang - this is the opposite. Too much too little, too warm too cool, positive negative
Quality - type of qi may be distilled to five basic elements - wood, fire, earth, metal and water. The confrontational interactions between them recommend an object element to balance them. A fire object may have qualities of light, heat, radiance, bitterness, spirit, passion and so on.
Conceptual - messages in the types of forms around you. For example, pictures of single unhappy people can be replaced with happy couples for someone who's seeking a relationship. It could be talismans that promote positive aims.
Repair and clean, organize or dispatch - broken or dirty belongs give you a negative expression, draining you. Excessive hoarding could be due to the fear that the universe will not provide. Make room for the new to invite opportunity. Of course, surround yourself with whole, beautiful and healthy items to improve your environment.
FENG SHUI IN YOUR LIFE
Feng shui can improve your particular journey but it may not make you a millionaire if fate and your actions don't provide an opportunity. Remember, the best feng shui can't overcome the consequences of criminal, unethical or unhealthy actions.
Feng shui principles warn that the kitchen door should not face the stove. Why??? While working at the stove, we may instinctively want to glance back to see if anyone is there. This might create a feeling of unease and makes us prone to accidents.
Thus, if we pay attention to our environment, we are able to create different realities. Everything is related. We just have to consider things carefully and not hastily.
