Feng shui is a traditional practice originating from China, a philosophy of using energy forces to harmonize individuals with their living spaces and working environment and create a striking balance with the natural world. The Chinese words “feng” and “shui” literally mean “wind” and “water,” respectively. This concept derived from an ancient poem that relates a story about human life being connected and flowing with its surroundings.
In Asian culture, this philosophy is called the Tao, which translates to mean “the way.” Taaoism is the overall reflection of how nature works in every single creation and when all these creations work in harmony it is said that the basic principles of feng shui are working and produce a balance of life. The essential principles of feng shui: the commanding position, the bagua, and the five elements all came from the philosophy of Tao.
The feng shui energy resides in specific earth locations and it must be found to be able to use it for good health, wealth, and well-being. Your exterior must be in harmony with all the forces connected to it and unless it is harmonized there is no way to create a good feng shui inside your home. Some feng shui experts claim that if the surroundings have bad feng shui, improving the indoor feng shui cannot be maximized. The outside energy has to be dealt with first because it has a big influence on the quality of energy your house is absorbing. So how do we apply feng shui in our homes?
