Feng shui is a Chinese term that means "wind and water". An ancient art and science that originated over thousands of years ago in China, based on the belief that the energy (chi) of the environment affects the well-being and fortune of the people who live in it.
Feng shui aims to create a harmonious balance between the natural and human-made elements of the environment, such as the landscape, the buildings, the furniture, the colors, the shapes, and the directions. It helps for example finding the most harmonious location for a new house or office. If you already have a house or office, Feng Shui helps you to bring in harmony and vitality as much as possible. Feng Shui has many schools with many rules and guidelines.
For me, the art is about using my feeling and intuition on top of my knowledge of Feng Shui. To advise a client on an individual and tailor made manner with an interpretation and implementation of all the rules and guidelines in the most appropriate way.
Feng shui is amongst others based on the principles like yin and yang, and the five elements.
The yin and yang are the opposite and complementary forces that make up everything in the universe. They represent the balance between the feminine and masculine, the passive and active, the dark and light, the cold and warm, and the negative and positive aspects of life.
The five elements are wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. They represent the different types of energy that interact with each other and affect the environment. Each element has its own characteristics, colors, shapes, and directions.
Feng shui uses these principles to analyze the energy flow of the environment and to suggest ways to enhance or correct it.
Feng shui practitioners use various tools and methods, such as the bagua map, the compass, the feng shui cures, and the personal number, to assess the quality of the energy and to recommend the best placement and arrangement of the objects and spaces.
Feng shui can be applied to any type of environment, such as the home, the office, the garden, the bedroom, the kitchen, the bathroom, and the living room.
Feng shui can help improve the quality of your life by creating a more harmonious, comfortable, and supportive environment. By following feng shui principles, you can enhance the positive energy and reduce the negative energy in an environment, which can affect your health, wealth, happiness, relationships, career, and success.
Feng shui can also help increase your awareness and appreciation of the natural beauty and order of your environment. Fostering a more respectful and mindful attitude towards it.
You can already start practicing Feng Shui yourself: Clear your clutter. Clutter is anything that is unnecessary, unused, broken, or disorganized. Clutter blocks the energy flow and creates stagnation, confusion, and stress. By clearing the clutter, you can create more space, freshness, and clarity in the environment and in the mind.
