What is Feng Shui?
What is Feng Shui after all? Where did it come from? Many such questions arise in the mind.
Feng Shui is a science of China and Pyramid is a gift from Egypt. Both of these are for human welfare. Feng Shui is made up of two words – Feng and Shui. This is the classical method of architecture of China. In Chinese, Feng means water and Shui means air. From this it is known that Feng Shui is a science based on the balance of two major elements of nature. The right balance of these two elements is capable of giving health, fame, respect and good fortune to a person. This science tells us in which direction we can place the objects around us according to size, color, element, planets and numbers. Keep the objects around us in such a way that neither the flow of energy stops anywhere nor the speed of energy is so fast that it leaves the building without giving us anything.
Modification based on Feng Shui is one of the simplest remedies to fix the fate of any common man. There is a great reason behind this. It is called the Trinity of Fate, there are three types of luck – 1. Fate obtained from earth, 2. Fate obtained by man by himself and 3. Fate obtained by heaven. Which you get due to the actions of your past births like planets, constellations, stars have a great influence on your destiny or as a reward or reward for the actions of your past births. Thus, luck is that which a man achieves on the strength of his hard work and dedication. This is called karma. It is generally believed that each person works with full force according to his/her potential. The fortune you get from Earth is the fortune you earn from the places where you live or work. This type of fortune-telling is the easiest to modify and can be completely sent in your favor. Feng Shui has proved beneficial in this stage. The most commonly used method in feng shui is the compass method based primarily on the lo-shu miracle square) pa-kua frame.
By using Feng Shui, we can give a homey feel to our flat and by making it harmonious we can make ourselves happier, healthier and more successful in every aspect of life.
Most of the important buildings in China are built according to the principles of Feng Shui.
Importance of ‘Chi’ life energy
The name of a person’s spiritual power is ‘Chi’. ‘Chi’ is also called Shegang Chi. Chi has a prominent place in Feng Shui. Chi is an invisible force found in all living and non-living things. In non-living things, it makes special formation of that substance, whereas in living things this life energy is invisible.
Feng Shui believes that the fate of a person is determined by birth. But it can be changed with the influence of ‘Chi’. There are two types of ‘chi’ – the vital chi hspam beep) and the lifeless ‘chi’ hmk beep). The life qi is positive and beneficial while the lifeless qi is negative and harmful.
Qi refers to the bonded energy that resides in all living beings and can be generated in many ways. Slow-flowing water provides abundant qi and that is why we feel energized when we spend some time near a lake, river, pond or fountain. Similarly, a slow-moving wind brings qi to us, while conversely, strong winds and thunderstorms carry qi with them, just as torrential rains carry it away. With the loss of qi, so does our good fortune.
Any action done correctly produces Chi. Thus a skilled musician composes the ‘chi’ while composing music and an athlete performs at his best. Nature is producing qi almost all the time. Aesthetic environments such as magnificent mountain peaks and lush green fields create or enhance the ‘qi’. An unknown enthusiast of the 17th century described qi as, ‘Good hills, clear waters, beautiful sunshine, dim breezes and new light in the sky, all of them have qi. In its company, the eyes are opened and one gets pleasure when sitting or lying down. Here the qi collects and accumulates in the fragrance. Light shimmers in the middle and miracles spread in every direction.
This qi becomes lethargic and gets rotten. A polluted pond creates negative qi which destroys good fortune. Therefore, in order to increase our vitality, we should encourage more and more positive qi in our apartments. Chi is the life force of living things, of the quality of the environment, of the movement of the sun, moon and weather, and of human activities. In China, the chi ‘energy’ is absorbed into the body by the rhythm of the hands and feet. When it is excessive, its flow is stopped with acupuncture needles. In China, special energetic herbs are used to correct imbalanced ‘chi’, yoga creates a healthy mind. Every marking on a Chinese artist’s brush or the wavy handwriting of a calligrapher’s pen is the result of trained mindfulness and correct breathing techniques, and the artist is confident that the ‘chi’ has been properly incorporated into painting and writing.
The purpose of Feng Shui is to create an environment in which ‘chi’ flows smoothly so as to maintain physical and mental health. The occupants of a house where the flow of ‘chi’ is balanced and uninterrupted will be in a favorable position and their life will be lived very easily. When the movement of ‘chi’ becomes sluggish and slow, it is more likely to face new problems everyday. In an office where the flow of ‘chi’ is free and free, the employees are happy and helpful, plans are completed on time and there is no trace of stress. Where the flow of qi is blocked, there will be a lack of harmony and business will never progress. In China it is called ‘Chi’, in Japan it is called ‘Ki’ and in India it is called energy power.
Where there is no presence of either qi, there is a presence of sha. It is the power that symbolizes the negative and harmful evil, Satan. Feng Shui is possible at the place where ‘chi’ flows.
