An introduction to the fascinating world of Feng Shui and how Fanqiang and Science can help you create a balance in your home environment. In the West, we have many different styles of home design. Some are modern, some are Victorian, and some have a mixture of styles. But what is the difference between the style and the Feng Shui styles?
Fanqiang is the Chinese word for sound ‘physical science’ and refers to a set of practices and theories which date back to the third century BC. Through this theory, the balance of a home environment is influenced by the direction of energy flow. This movement of energy is influenced by two things; the position of the zodiac animals and the position of the ‘Chi’ meridian in relation to the Earth’s axis.
The energy that moves through the home or building is termed as ‘chi’ (經), and it is the action of this chi that dictates the direction of the energy flow. The ‘Chi’ meridian acts as the ‘blueprint’ of the home’s or building’s environment.
Science of Feng Shui guides us through these theories to create a healthy and effective home environment and to improve the way we live. It guides us to understand our homes and to enjoy them more.
Today, more than ever, it is important to care for your home and be aware of the dangers our environment brings, and how your own well-being, family’s health and our own as well can be affected by our possessions, our surroundings and of course, our ‘health’. So many issues come into play and it is so important to take care of ourselves.
However, that is not the only thing we have to care for! We also have to take care of our surroundings and ourselves as well. If we fail to do this, we are playing with fire! And if we fail to do this, we are setting ourselves up for more serious health problems. Learn more information about https://medium.com/me/stats/post/7d3e4914e90
With this in mind, we should take great caution in our daily lives and refrain from bad habits or addictions that may affect our physical selves and may cause us to become ill and even take our own lives. If we do this, we will no longer have a home; we will be no longer at home!
Energy and Chi are both very real; the difference is that Chi is produced by our bodies while the energy that moves through the universe is always external. We cannot force Chi to flow through our bodies. But we can force it to flow to our home and into our physical and emotional health.
