What is Feng Shui?
Feng shui is a Chinese system of harmonizing the human existence with the surrounding environment. Feng means wind and shui means water. Together, it means how the wind and water flows the energy within the area and its effect on those in that area. Good feng shui can bring good fortune and good health. Whereas, bad feng shui brings bad luck and negativity in the area. You can apply the elements of feng shui to your home or office to help attract what you want the most.
Always remember though, whatever element you choose to work with, you have to like it as well. For instance, if you are trying to attract love and decorate your bedroom in pink; however, if you genuinely dislike the color pink, then it won’t have any effect in bringing and attracting love in your life. You have to like what you choose to work with. Being in harmony with your surroundings while incorporating the elements of feng shui is the only way to get desired results. Otherwise, it won’t work.
How to Apply Feng Shui to an Area?
To apply feng shui to an area, you will first need to know the orientation of the area you are working with. To find the orientation, you can use a regular compass to get the readings or you can use a feng shui compass to get the readings. The feng shui compass is called Lo-Pan, and it is used to define the Bagua of the home. Lo means everything and Pan means a bowl. Lo-Pan can be interpreted as a tool to access the mysteries of the universe. A professional feng shui compass can have up to 40 rings of information. However; you do not need a feng shui compass to define the orientation. You do need to know the accurate orientation of your area (North, South, East and West).
Use the North to align with the feng shui chart as you decorate your home or office.
