Feng shui (fung-SHWAY) is a Chinese system of geomancy believed to use the laws of both Heaven (Chinese astronomy) and Earth to help one improve life by receiving positive Qi (life energy, (pronounced “chee” in English). The original designation for the discipline is Kan Yu (literally: Tao of heaven and earth).
The term feng shui literally translates as “wind-water” in English. This is a cultural shorthand taken from the following passage of the Zangshu (Book of Burial) by Guo Pu of the Jin Dynasty:
Qi rides the wind and scatters, but is retained when encountering water. [Wikipedia]
Feng Shui is the art of managing the Five Elements. When harmonizing our environment we should consider the effects of water, wood, fire, earth and metal. Each one of these elements react in a different way and create energy within our environment.
By organizing our environment randomly, we cannot take control and therefore allow discord to become an obstacle without ever realizing. Feng Shui can give focus and direction to the space where we live or work. The idea and implementation of order allows us to then take advantage of these elements and use them to help rather than become an obstacle.
Qi (Chi), the term for universal energy that permeates everything around us including our body, the environment and buildings is always changing and moving and depends on these elements. Feng Shui is used to guide this energy into it’s best possible use which in turn may improve our life style and our energy by maximizing the environment in which we are.
