What Feng Shui is really about
There are three aspects to this:
- Bring positive Qi into the building,
- Harmoniously distribute this Qi to each of the rooms and areas,
- Create supportive spaces to retain positive Qi and make it available to you.
Let’s have a look at each of these points:
1. Bring positive Qi into the building
i) Beautiful physical features:
We remedy any negative features, or Sha Qi, and endeavour to catch positive Qi through strategic design and furniture placement.
ii) Positive intangible Qi to make a building radiant:
Intangible Qi is determined by the individual energy chart of a building. This tells us the quality of Qi that comes to the building from the different compass directions.
2. Harmoniously distribute Qi to each of the rooms and areas
Straight lines are cutting and Qi moves too fast. It is detrimental to spend time in the trajectory of a straight road or hallway. These tend to create lost space by making the area at the end of them unusable.
3. Supportive spaces to retain positive Qi and make it available to you
These are the three points that go into good Feng Shui! We then use a whole tool kit of Feng Shui principles and remedies to achieve it. The overall aim is to achieve harmony and a dynamic Yin Yang balance.
Dynamic Yin Yang Balance
- a living area is filled with radiant life energy AND there is opportunity for you to relax – versus one that is too busy or too dull.
- a work space that enables you to focus, be clear-headed and productive – versus one where you feel distracted and drained.
- a bedroom where you feel comfortable, protected and can sleep well – versus one where you can’t sleep, get sick often or wake up drained.
