Feng Shui - The Art of Positioning
What combines architecture, interior design, landscaping, Chinese wisdom, astrology and common sense? The
answer is -- Feng Shui, which literally means wind and water. It is about movement and circulation of positive forces.
Feng Shui is all about rearranging your environment in an auspicious manner. Auspicious literally means "with the
stars." Indeed Feng Shui and astrology combine in a unified field theory of space time continuum. Put another way,
when you arrange to be in the "right space" at the "right time" and you "do the right thing," your life is good. Following
are some highlights of the Feng Shui approach.
Install a fountain. The gentle sound
of flowing water will relax and soothe
you. Day or night, this fountain will be
the focal point of your favorite room!
Water fountains that are today part of
many homes, thanks to the minute
forms in which they are available in,
are supposed to be very powerful
Feng Shui enhancers because they
bring the energy of moving water into
your home. Moving water is
associated with communication,
social connections, and with an
increased flow of prosperity into your
life. Fountains can be placed by the
front door, or in any area of the house
that needs to be nourished by water
It is good to have a variety of lights
and lighting. For example, there is
great benefit from low lighting such
as some little "Christmas" lights
and other forms of outdoor lighting.
Consider a string of lights or two on
your porch, in a nearby tree, or
inside of your home, perhaps
decorating house plants.

Start at the entrance. Put a light at your
door. For the most part, brighter is better.
Lights are comparable in effect to
miniature suns. Lights are a positive
force. A path light leading to the entrance
or a wall light on the main facade.
IS FENG SHUI ?
Feng Shui, (pronounced “Fung Sh-way”), has been used for over 3000 years in China and the Far
East as a method to determine and create the most appropriate environment for a harmonious life.
Feng means “wind” and Shui means “water”. Wind and water are considered natural forces of the
universe. The ancient Chinese lived their lives by these natural forces. Feng Shui states that all
living things in the universe are subject to the control of the environment. Wind or energy called Chi,
is believed that if directed in a knowledgeable way, can be very beneficial to our lives.
Most of us are unaware that we are being affected every moment by these energies. We can take
control of our lives simply through the principles of Feng Shui and the awareness of our actions.
Emperors and royal families practiced Feng Shui in secret so they could hold the most power over
China. Over the years, the true practice of Feng Shui has become distorted. Books teach only basic
Feng Shui principles, which are combined with folklore and superstition.
Feng Shui is not a religion nor a philosophy, but rather a mathematical formula taking in date, time
and space and curing energy with the 5 natural elements.
