What is Feng Shui?

 

Ask 100 different practitioners, and you may receive 100 different answers as to how Feng Shui works, or what it is. Whether one chooses to look at it scientifically or ethereally, there is no doubt that there is an energetic force both inside and around objects (including people). Science is finally beginning to confirm what shamans, energy workers, and Feng Shui practitioners have known all along there is a force beyond the electrons, underlying the molecules, in the space between the spaces, which our bodies intuitively respond to.

 

To me, Feng Shui is a language hidden deep inside ourselves and in everything around us. In my practice of Feng Shui and to paraphrase John Muir, I adopt the idea that we are all, at our barest beginnings, connected to everything else in the universe. Consider that the same energy that moves the atoms in our bodies moves the atoms in our armchair, and in that tree outside.

 

If we accept this, then we realize that adjusting to be more in harmony with our surroundings can enhance our physical, emotional, and mental health and also support the physical manifestations of our desires.

 

Literally translated, Feng Shui means Wind and Water. It is the name given thousands of years ago to the practice of aligning with our surroundings in order to create more harmony for ourselves and in our lives. In ancient China, it was more a science than a belief. It was a necessity of successful living, although it all began with the placement of graves. As it was practiced more and more through the centuries, it was adopted for living spaces. When someone was ill or injured and visited a doctor, they often also had a Feng Shui practitioner visit their homes, the thought being: why get something fixed if it is only going to happen again as the home exerts its influence?
