Fengshui is an ancient art and science developed over 3,000 years ago in China. It is a complex body of knowledge that teaches how to balance the energies in any given space – be it a home, office or garden – in order to assure good fortune for people inhabiting it.
So regardless of any religion, anyone can benefit on the right Feng Shui.
Fengshui can be a very effective tool for helping people to create harmonious working and living environments, which can also bring about other changes for the better as a consequence.
As good fortune comes in many ways – better health, successful career, fulfilling love life, etc – feng shui has detailed tips for almost any area of one’s life.
Understanding the basic of fengshui
Yin and yang
The concept of yin and yang is that interconnection and continuous change is the dynamic process of nature, which is the significance expressed by the familiar yin-yang symbol. It is fundamental to Chinese cultural philosophy, as reflected in Daoist perceptions and in the Yijing. Examples are light and shade, inner and outer, movement and stillness. A balance between yin and yang creates harmony and stability in a place, as the natural equilibrium becomes disrupted whenever there is too much of one or other.
The five elements, also known as the five phases or transformations, are water, wood, fire, earth and metal. They are correlated to the eight feng shui trigrams. Each trigram relates to a specific compass direction, colour, shape, season, family member and body part. The five elements can be either physical objects or metaphoric representations, used in various ways to strengthen, support, enhance, weaken, manage or control one another, depending upon their relationship and placement. They are introduced to beneficially influence a living space and to support its occupants.
Understanding the rules and laws of the Yin- Yang and Five Elements theory enables us to improve our life.
