What is Feng Shui?

Feng Shui literally means "wind-water" and reflects the course of "chi" or energy taken in from your surroundings. This energy can affect your wealth, relationships and health.

Q. Is Feng Shui associated with any religion ?

A. No. It is important to understand that Feng Shui is the understanding of the law of nature. Living in accordance to the law of nature and nourishing ourselves with healthy surroundings strengthens our minds and bodies.

When you have decided that you can create what you want and need, here are some self help items that you can begin with:

1) Clutter and Debris: Get rid of the old and make room for the new. Less is more!

2) Fix and Repair: Windows are the eyes of the Chi (life force energy) and affect ones clarity so replace broken glass panes and clean the windows; plumbing represents our digestive system so repair those leaky faucets and clogged drains; the electrical is our neurological system so tend to your electrical needs; HVAC heating ventilation and air-conditioning represents the lungs and breathing so make sure that the ducts are clean and free of bacteria, and replace the standard air filter with a HEPA filter which is much more effective; a sticking door can contribute to tension between partners in the home so ease a tight fit.

3) Stove: If your back is to the door or entrance into the kitchen while you are cooking then install a mirror behind the stove. This helps to create a more balanced environment for the chef. The energy of the chef is imparted into the food so for this reason we pay special attention to the stove. Also be sure and rotate your use of each burner as this is important for prosperity.

4) Master Bed: Place the master bed in the position with the most commanding view of the bedroom door. We spend about 1/3 of our lives in bed in an open vulnerable state and so it is important that this area be supportive to our being. Our relationship to the doorway into the bedroom is important because the door is the mouth of the Chi (life-force energy).

5) Front entrance: The main entrance to the house or building is the main mouth of the Chi. This is where symbolically all the Chi enters the building. It is important that the main entrance be clear, open and well defined. Make sure that there is a clear even path to the front door and that the hedges are trimmed back. The main entrance is also used for the positioning of the Ba Gua, an octagon, which is superimposed on the foot print of the house.(See diagram) From the BaGua we are able to discern much useful information about the environment and lives of the occupants. It is a powerful tool used to correct imbalances.

6) Lighting: Make sure that there is adequate natural lighting as well as artificial lighting throughout the building. Use full spectrum lighting (found at health food stores, they are light blue/purple on the outside) in key areas where you spend time and then you can mix in super energy efficient low wattage fluorescents for energy conservation. These use only 15 watts of electricity for 60-70 watts of output and they last a long time. Many local power companies offer these at subsidized rates.

7) Embrace your environment: Embrace your environment as if it were a part of you which it is! For those who are more sensitive to energies there is more that can be done. Begin by clearing any old denser energies from the environment by using sage, incense, candles, chimes, or just by singing and dancing throughout the environment with clear intention. Fill your environment with love and light. This can be done as often as you feel is useful but in particular should be done when first occupying space or after some trauma has occurred. Environments sometimes do hold onto old energies from previous occupants so it is helpful to clear them.

Feng Shui also has a way of using colors to create balance. There are several philosophies about color but they are all based on the principle that every color has a unique vibrational frequency. Feng Shui seeks to have all colors in harmonic balance with a representation of each of the primary colors in your space. This might be thought of in a similar way to the 7 colors of the chakras, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, purple. It is fine to have white walls and then balance out the colors with the rugs, pictures, chairs, etc. Avoid too much of any one color such as brown floor, brown walls, brown ceiling.

Feng Shui stresses the importance of integrating the practical/tangible issues with the transcendental/intangible aspects. The practical/tangible aspects include such issues as color, placement of furniture, lighting, doorways, floor plans, electrical pollution, air quality, etc. The transcendental/intangible aspects are beyond intellectual understanding and involve mantras, mudras, and visualizations to affect change in our environment. It is important to combine practical aspects with transcendental aspects for maximum results. Considering only the practical aspects of Feng Shui might be 40% effective in creating harmonious space, however when the practical is combined with the transcendental then it may have a 140% effectiveness. Knowledge of these transcendental aspects allows a Feng Shui Practitioner to see through our environment what we are unable to see in our selves.

Everyone can learn to connect with their environment in more whole ways and it is time for us to do so. We can no longer continue to abuse the environments. Feng Shui is becoming popular not as a fad but rather as a universal truth. Many are finding ways of explaining what was done intuitively in the past or why other things have not worked so well. The time is now! This is our wake up call.

Love and Embrace your environments as part of you and it will joyously give back to you Love and Universal Peace. This is Feng Shui in its purity.
