What is Feng Shui?

Feng Shui is ancient art and science  of arranging elements in your internal and external environments with the objective of enhancing health, wealth, and happiness for you, your family and business.

What are the Basic Principles of Feng Shui?

Classical Feng Shui rests on insight into, the principles of Yin Yang, the Five Elements, the Eight Trigrams, the East/West compass theory, and your own immediate environment.

How are the Basic Principles Applied?

The basic principles includes an in-depth understanding and application of the theories of Yin Yang, along with the balancing of the Five Elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water) and taking into account the magnetic fields that permeate the natural environment and impact the latter in diverse ways.

Mirrors are commonly used for personal grooming or admiring oneself, decoration, and architecture.Not Feng Shui.

Are Wind Chimes used in FengShui?

Yes but only if they are made of metal and used with care.  Perversely enough, improper placement of wind chimes can cause problems.

 

What Does Feng Shui Have to Do With Religious Beliefs, Buddhism or Taoism?

In a word, nothing.  Some people think that Feng Shui is a body of religious beliefs and should supplant your Catholic faith or other religion.  Or that belief in Feng Shui remedies takes precedence over religious doctrine and medical science.  Others seek to ape religious devotees by chanting their intentions when installing Feng Shui remedies. There’s no doubt that your beliefs and intentions are powerful influences in your life. However, they have nothing to do with managing the existing Feng Shui influences in daily life.

How Do I Know When My Feng Shui is Good?

Despite popular opinion, Feng Shui is less about how a place feels and more about your personal experience while living or working in any given place.  If your life is for the most part wholesome, if you enjoy a harmonious family life, and your business relationships are not only productive but profitable, you no doubt have good Feng Shui.  If you frequently suffer difficulty or poor results, you likely have poor Feng Shui.
