Holistic Living With Feng Shui

7 Sep

Feng Shui which literally translates as wind and water in English, is an ancient Chinese art to balance the environment of a working space or a dwelling to repel and remove the negative energy and to channelize the positive vibrations into the living or working space.

Feng Shui is a holistic art and science to strike a balance between the inner domain of thoughts and feelings with the outer environment. The balance can be created by placing Feng Shui objects at various strategic places in the room or decorating it with suitable colors that will lead to better productivity with vibes of positive energy around it.

Principles of Feng Shui

The principle of Feng Shui is based on three major elements- Tao, Chi and Yin/Yang. Tao is the way we all are connected with the life forces around us. When we are disconnected with Tao, our life system gets affected and gets impaired. Chi is the movement of life energy and vibrating vitality around us that must move around freely. When Chi gets trapped it causes problems and when there is too much of the Chi, it creates the chaos. Therefore, balancing the life energy is of utmost importance for a comforting, peaceful and good life. In another principle of Feng Shui, Yin/Yang are the complimentary opposites that need to be balanced for goodness. Yin/Yang are opposite yet complimentary to each other such as; male/female, high/low or curved/straight. Excess of yin or yang can create chaos to your life.

Effects of Feng Shui on our minds

There are various ways to incorporate Feng Shui into our lives. It can be through colors and blocks of movement such as; music, small fountain or art pieces. Feng Shui can also be incorporated and utilised to activate art space into your house or office by adding the elements the nature such as plants, source of natural light of rock pieces from beach etc. Evoking right energy balance in a creative space will help you translate your thoughts to convert into full bloom of creation and active manifestation.
