What is Feng Shui - Feng Shui Theory and Feng Shui Tools, Cures and Tips

So what is Feng Shui? This is a simple question that can be difficult to answer. Feng Shui is an ancient art and science developed over 3,500 years ago in China. It is a complex body of knowledge that focus on how to balance the energies of any given space to assure the health and good fortune for people inhabiting it.

It is literally Wind and Water in Chinese. In Chinese culture wind and water are associated with good health, thus good feng shui came to mean good fortune, while bad feng shui means bad luck, or misfortune.

Feng Shui is based on the ancient Chinese vision and about understanding of the nature, particularly on the idea that the land is mush alive and filled with Qi, or energy. The ancient Chinese believed that these Qi energy could either make or break even a kingdom, so to speak. The theories of yin yang, as well as the five feng shui elements, are some of the basic aspects of a feng shui analysis that come from Taoism. In short, it is a Chinese metaphysical study that looks at the how the surroundings affect mankind - positive or negatively.

While this definition is correct, it is incomplete. This is why.

The definition implies that the surrounding features - especially large ones such as mountains and waterways somehow affect mankind. Plus man made structures such a lamp post, buildings, roads, high tension pylons, electrical substations, cemetery etc. The ancient text says that when there is form, there is ‘qi’. The location, shape, size and distance of these features Qi both good and bad and will affect mankind. This is a well known and is known as ‘Xing Fa’ or Form Feng Shui. It is exemplified by the San He School and is popularly called, Form School.

Unfortunately that there is also ‘qi’ in the absence of form! What did this mean? Mankind is also affected by the cosmic energy (also called qi) that comes from out of space. These are forces created by planetary movements. It is also known as ‘Li Fa’ or ‘Li Qi’ which is a technique or ‘qi’ that is unseen but can be revealed through calculation.

The San Yuan School is based on this belief that the quality of these Qi or energies will change with time and influence the quality of dwelling. This is why some dwellers that have good Feng Shui can turn bad (and good again) with the changing of time.

The Xuan Kong Fei Xing (Flying Star) system is an example of such a ‘Li’ or ‘Calculation’ system.

From all the above can we conclude that Feng Shui is a study of how mankind is affect by the surrounding that are not just limited to nearby surrounding forms but also invisible energies that originate from the cosmos (out of space).

But is this explanation complete. In my opinion, it is not. Let see why.

There is an intrinsic and undeniable relationship between Feng Shui and a person’s natal chart, Bazi or the Four Pillars of Destiny (or astrology). Somehow at birth, we are inbound with these energy that determines how the different directions and sectors will affect us. This is best exemplified by the Eight Mansions Personal Gua system where each of us have 4 good and 4 bad directions and sectors based on our year of birth.

At a more advance level I will use the Four Pillars of Destiny, Ba Zi and Zi Wei which is highly personalized as it takes the year, month, day and hour of birth into consideration. Advanced practitioners know that with Ba Zi or Zi Wei , we can state with decent accuracy how the different directions and sectors - 8 with Ba Zi and 12 with Zi Wei - affect a person’s wealth, career, health, travel and relationships.

And these directions and sectors are different for everyone who is not born on the same day and time. This is best illustrated by the ancient Feng Shui saying, - Three persons living in the same house walk a different path. This is another reason why it is not possible to optimize the Feng Shui of a house for every occupant. In practice we optimize it for the head of the household and do our best for the rest!

As you can see, Feng Shui is not just about how nearby structures that will affect us. A complete practitioner will also consider the unseen cosmic forces as well as take the person’s astrology into consideration.
