Feng Shui (pronounced Fung Shway) literally means ‘wind water’.
It is an ancient Chinese practice that encourages living in balance with our natural surroundings in order to bring happiness and success in all areas of one’s life. The practice was previously confined to the affluent upper classes so that its secret formulas were always carefully guarded. This secret had been released by Master practitioners and therefore put Feng Shui within reach of anyone and everyone.
Feng Shui is not a religion nor is it superstition. However, it relates to the harmonious flow of energies within and surrounding a building so that positive energies can be enhanced and negative ones depleted. Feng Shui addresses all the ways people can employ these energies so that they are beneficial rather than harmful for the living. The aim of Feng Shui is to use these beneficial energies in a way that allows them to linger and meander through the building bringing prosperity and conversely reducing the negative destructive effects.
The Chinese have a saying “First, luck; second, destiny; third, Feng Shui; fourth, virtues (karma); fifth, education” (Hale, 1999). Luck, personality and karma plays a major role. What we do with our lives and the actions we partake towards others is also important. The education we attain gives us the tools to make sense of the world and Feng Shui can be a powerful force in shaping our lives and thus become part of the complete package. The three lucks, Heaven (Luck and Destiny), Earth (Feng Shui) and Mankind (Karma and Study) determines why our lives are the way they are.
We can't alter our Heaven Luck, but we can work on our Man Luck and Earth Luck.
Early Feng Shui masters discovered that various patterns of energy influenced the human mind and body. When people were positioned with auspicious energies, they experienced good fortune, whereas when aligned with inauspicious energies, they would experience adversity and obstacles.
From these understandings, the basis of advanced Feng Shui philosophy emerged. Traditional Feng Shui uses technical concept and methods of study which combine different schools of Feng Shui. Whilst there are many different schools of Feng Shui, the concurrence of these different schools provides the comprehensive application of Feng Shui analysis.
Form School focuses on the land, its contours, mountain ranges and the position of water. It plays particular attention to the influence of landforms around a building and the impact furniture placement has internally.
Compass School principle incorporates the different compass facing direction of a building. It ascertains the availability of the types of influential energies from that direction and takes advantage of its auspicious benefits for its occupants.
Flying Star is considered as the most complex, accurate and powerful form of Feng Shui, Flying Star School is the traditional Chinese Feng Shui which takes into account the influence of time on a building. It is based on numbers which is the language of the universe. Its specific energetic quality may influence such things as wisdom and intelligence, conflict and arguments, steady increase in wealth and fame, increased risk of accidents in children, romance and academic success, or sickness, problems with the authorities.
