Feng Shui – Conscious Decoration
Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese method of balancing the energies within the home or living space. It gets its name from the elements of Wind and Water. There are two main schools of Feng Shui. One school using a compass to orient the space and decide how to align and work with it. The other school figures out the main entrance or the main mouth of chi and then aligns the space accordingly. Each school tends to use the floorplan of the home, office, or space while diagnosing the space. There is something called a bagua map that has the 5 chinese elements of wood, water, earth, metal, and fire as well as a lot of other information and correspondences.
The Black Hat Feng Shui method is often considered the Western version and it subscribes to the aligning of the space to the main entrance. Feng Shui has many intricacies so if the idea of aligning and harmonizing your living or working space interests you I would suggest a book such as The Modern Book of Feng Shui.
Feng Shui is a valuable practice even if you don’t believe in the metaphysical aspects of it’s ideology. Feng Shui causes the practitioner to begin to organize their space and to make room for archetypal aspects of living such as Family, Relationships, Career, Wealth, ect. Because of how Feng Shui’s division of the space is consciously worked with and improved upon it brings the practitioner’s intention into the equation as well. This means that when the practitioner cleans out the clutter from the part of their home that corresponds to relationships for example, they are on another level also making more space in their lives for someone special.
