Feng Shui is the Chinese philosophical system of harmonizing humananity with its environment. The Feng Shui looks at architecture in metaphoric terms of "invisible forces" that bind the universe, earth, and man together, known as chi or energy. Feng Shui was widely used to design buildings—especially spiritual structures like tombs, but also dwellings and other structures. Depending on the particular style of Feng Shui being used, an auspicious site could be determined by reference to local features such as bodies of water, stars, or a compass.
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. They believed that specific land's energy could either make or break the kingdom, so to speak. The theories of yin and yang, as well as the five Feng Shui elements, are some of the basic aspects of a Feng Shui analysis that come from Taoism.
The main tools used in a Feng Shui analysis are the Compass and the Bagua. The Feng Shui energy map, or Bagua, is an octagonal grid containing the symbols of the I Ching, the ancient oracle on which Feng Shui is based. Knowing the Bagua of your home will help you understand the connection of specific Feng Shui areas of your home to specific areas of your life.
So there are many courses on Feng Shui but here are a few simple steps to start balance the chi in your home -
Clear out your clutter; get rid of everything you do not love in your house. Remember clearing physical clutter helps to remove mental clutter.
Open the window and let in the light, essential for allowing chi to flow through your home, purify your air with plants and crystals
Be aware of the feel of your home and how its energy influences your well-being. Make a habit of paying close attention to the so-called Feng Shui "trinity" your bedroom, your bathroom and your kitchen which strongly influence your health.
For even more in depth Feng Shui in your home find out which of the five elements you need in your home, - Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. Find Out Your Feng Shui Birth Element and create a home to nourish and support that energy.
Remember this is the year of the wooden horse so your bedroom should be clean and soft with off-white and soft pastels, or white with accents of brown, beige, gold or silver to introduce the metal element. The bathroom should be a cheerful and comfortable space with blues and white, and accents of black, wood, natural fibres and stone. If walls are white, consider painting this room, because this is a water element room and too much white is too much metal, creating conflict.
Blessings to your and your home
