The traditional knowledge and art of practicing Feng Shui evolved approximately 6000 years ago in Neolithic China. In our modern day and age the philosophy of Feng Shui aims to guide people to create and optimise personal spaces in a way that maintain and enhance personal wellbeing, prosperity and fortune.
Feng Shui applies the art of balancing energy and requires a consideration of Yin and Yang along with the Five Elements (Fire, Earth, Wind, Water and Wood). In order to create “Good” Feng Shui, it is important that all elements become aligned with our unique innate personality so that a sustainable harmonious flow of Chi (Life-Force Energy) is created.
Once this Chi has been established within your home, and/or your office, you will likely experience an amplified harmonic and uplifting presence. This shift in positive energy will enhance your overall health and productivity, as well as create balance among your family and/or your workplace.
Some people may well believe that creating Good Feng Shui is not that hard after all, which is true when you are genuinely aligned with your “innate SELF”, and are sensitive to the subtleness of Chi (Life-Force Energy).
However, most people are concerned with their ever evolving and accelerating business of life itself, with little room to immerse and feel the present moment. It is often the case that the subtle cues of emerging or ongoing dis-harmony and friction are overlooked, as miscommunication, misinterpretation and adverse life events take hold. We mostly find it easy to provide instant justification and reasoning rather than slowing down and giving extra attention to any underpinning causes of why such unpleasant situations and events are happening.
The Form School is often referred to as being one of the oldest and most traditional art forms of Feng Shui. It is predominantly concerned with the topographical appearances within an environment, such as mountains, valleys and any bodies of water, and how they interrelate and influence the flow of Qi. In ancient times this approach was used by emperors to find the most ideal locations to build major cities.
The Compass School is also considered a traditional form of Feng Shui. However, a significant difference is that this school additionally implies using the Lo Pan compass. This approach is more complex as it further requires including birth information, and determining a person’s most positive desirable directions with regard to how a dwelling should be designed. Of concern would be the direction from where you enter your house, where you sleep and work within your home, and also where and how to receive guests and visitors.
The origins of the Compass School are set to have developed from the I Ching (The Book of Changes). For centuries the I Ching system has profoundly influenced Chinese philosophy, Taoism, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Astrology and Numerology. It is believed that the ancient I Ching system holds the secret and keys to the Universe, as well as the law and influences that govern nature, and which for centuries now continues to influence Asian cultures until this present day. In recent years the effects and principles outlining the I Ching system have been increasingly studied, and many aspects and relationships have now been confirmed by quantum mechanics.
The Flying Star School is considered to be the most advanced form of Feng Shui as it is based on the Luo Shu grid and mathematical principles. This approach investigates the effects and interactions of different energies at play during different periods of time within a building. Its name is derived from the fact that within this grid nine numbers or “stars” move or ”fly” around at any given time.
Using the Lo Shu grid allows for an in-depth analysis of your home and/or office environment, as relevant numbers or “stars” systematically move positions according to the different compass directions and time periods. At its most simple level, Flying Stars Feng Shui is the way to harmonize the Feng Shui within your defined space. It can locate personal prosperity energies, strengthen human luck, boost health, wealth and relationships, counter-act negative energies within a specific environment, and neutralize or mitigate conceptualizations of misfortune.
Sometimes getting yourself some professional support can work magic. Booking a personal and professional Feng Shui analysis will support you in creating a more harmonious and healthy home. Together we will explore and identify any areas that cause disharmony, or provide obstacles and challenge, as well as determine and outline all already existing positive areas.
One of the primary principle to living a healthier, wealthier and harmonic lifestyle is however to Simplify, De-Clutter and letting go of what has no purpose and does not spark joy. Another principle focuses on attracting prosperity and good fortune right from the start; by designing your main entrance in a way that is inviting, vibrant and reflective of who you as a person, family and/or business would like to be recognised.
