The ancient art and science of Feng Shui is centuries old born in China, for the emperors to bury their ancestors in beautiful, protected place. For centuries Feng Shui has created and continues to create healthy, vibrant lives.
Feng Shui means Wind and Water in Chinese. Wind travels throughout our Universe, freely and uninhibited, and is essential to our survival. It is our breath and the earth’s breath, it is the Qi of life. Water takes the shape of any form, snow, ice, rivers etc. and seeing that we are made up of 70+% water, we all know how critical water is to our survival.
When our Feng Shui is balanced we are swimming with the current. The water is clean, clear and abundant and we are flowing easily, in contrast to stagnant water with no circulation, an eddy where we simply go in circles- getting no where, or a polluted pond. These are metaphors for good and bad Feng Shui. When our Feng Shui is balanced life flows easily and effortlessly, the Qi, Energy lingers and meanders and all is well.
The Ba-Gua, or Lifestyle Grid as Mary Dennis calls it, is divided into 8 Lifestyle areas called Guas and the Tai Ji, Health center, is located in the middle of the Ba-Gua. Each of the Guas has a predominant element associated with it: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal or Water. In order to have balanced Feng Shui it is imperative that the proper elements are located and supported in their correct Guas.
Feng Shui is based on the alignment of the five elements, Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. The elements are of paramount importance to Feng Shui. Use them properly, and watch your life blossom into a world of beauty.
