What Is Feng Shui?

How good Feng Shui is a valuable asset for your home – Your home has a psychological function as well as physical function. A building with good Feng Shui provides a place for the mind and body to function optimally in the world. A positive flow of Qi ensures that you are in a place where you can function well to reach your full potential. A sense of physical well-being and emotional balance can be felt when there is balance of Qi in the environment.

Feng Shui starts with the individual. When I am called in do a Feng Shui consultation it is because my client is ready to shift….to make positive changes in their lives. This may not be evident to them at first, but once we sit down and have a conversation about what they are looking for and what’s going on in their lives, we often come up with a plan to shift their personal Qi. So, in addition to working on the environment, I often work with the client to help them make these changes. This may be through one of the five element adjustments, personal coaching or clearing. It all depends on the client’s willingness and desire to truely change.

Feng Shui – is an ancient science developed in China to help human beings live in harmony with their environment. It has been used for centuries in China and other Asian nations and is now becoming mainstream in the United States and around the world. It is the art of placement and location of manmade structures to harmonize and benefit from the surrounding physical environment – tapping the goodness of nature to benefit mankind. Feng Shui is concerned with the shape, form and planning of a building and how it relates to the site and to the surrounding buildings. It is good Feng Shui practice to design buildings with unifying architectural or construction features.

In ancient China, almost all cities, towns and homes were developed and planned in accordance with Feng Shui theories and rules. The Feng Shui Master was involved in the whole process of choosing the land, designing the exterior and interior of the structures, choosing an auspicious date for ground breaking and performing blessing ceremonies at the beginning of a project and at various phases as needed.

It is the responsibility of the Feng Shui Master to determine and direct the flow of qi, or energy, into a residence or business to magnify the potential of the environment and its occupants. She also determines the best orientation of the building, and assesses the qi of the site.

In BTB Feng Shui™ we follow the “Mouth of Qi” and “Commanding Position” theories introduced by H.H. Professor Thomas Yun Lin. His theories observe how the qi or energy enters (the Mouth of Qi) the site, buildings as well as each room. The proper location of doors and the position of furnishings (whether or not they are in a commanding position) also have an effect on the flow of qi. Our task is to locate the “Commanding Position” and identify the “Mouth of Qi” and produce an arrangement that is beneficial to the health, prosperity and well being of the residents.

Feng Shui can improve all aspects of your life. Living in a pleasing environment will enhance your relationships and of well being. Making personal Qi adjustments can open up a whole new world for you!
