The Art of Feng Shui

In ancient days, nearly all people were open to the laws of harmony and nature’s powers and were able to intuitively perceive and use landscape formations, cardinal directions, and symbols. The effects of the natural elements and energies as well as the interaction of all matter surrounding us, were taken for granted and fully accepted. This sensitive perception was lost during industrialization. In addition, strong influences of different eras which were punishing the use of ancient knowledge, energies, and symbols, made a great percentage of precious ancient knowledge disappear.
Luckily this did not happen on the entire globe, so that we are now able to benefit from the precious detailed Chinese and Asian empirical sciences that are thousands of years old and firstly were used by the imperial court. In the same old way Feng Shui is traditionally used in Asia when searching for a piece of land or when designing a new building. As we traditionally buy chairs with four legs because we know they are secure and stable; now we have designers who have the idea to invent glas chairs with three legs…

Feng Shui has a long history

Auspicious energies

Using only a few symbols or amulets, a Feng Shui master can detect, move, or support certain disturbing or auspicious energies. In every main Asian metropolis, Feng Shui is practiced in the biggest companies which helped to develop a complex system for success and wealth. Many Feng Shui principles and practices follow the laws of nature and harmony. The ancient Celts, Romans, and Greeks were already practising Feng Shui, even though they called it differently in those days. It is for them that most of our old buildings have a balanced, harmonic, and symmetrical design and are built according to the energetic conditions of the land.

Classic Feng Shui

In China, houses were traditionally angled towards the South, ideally having a waterbody in that direction. Accordingly, classic Feng Shui was applied with fine measurements and adjustments, placing certain symbols and objects in certain places. A form of popular belief developed that was not adapted to modern or energetic conditions, but was simply passed on. This form of cosmetic Feng Shui that is rather built on belief than on profound understanding of actual energetics is only as effective as the faith of each individual can move mountains. The classical teachings of Feng Shui from the ancient taoistic wise men are not a popular belief but are flexible like a bamboo and can be translated discreetly and straightforward into the modern western world, without the need of fans and flutes or the instruction of not using certain spaces.

Practical Feng Shui

It seems that knowledge of the advantages of practical Feng Shui is experiencing a renaissance. Not only private households have experienced the possibility and support that can be gained from an energetic consultation. More and more house builders and managers wish to obtain security and success for their construction project, considering the energetic conditions to their best abilities. Many examples show that it has great advantages to apply the knowledge of Feng Shui already when planning and positioning houses and buildings. The additional construction effort and extra expenses are in this stage usually minor, whereas the resulting flow of energy is noticably better. It therefore is generally advisable for every builder or architect to introduce a consultant in the very beginning who offers a profound and qualified knowledge of the art of Feng Shui.

How does Feng Shui work?

According to Dr. Jes T.Y. Lim, Feng Shui predominantly is dealing with the accumulation of Qi, meaning the oxygen level and vitality. However, Feng Shui also represents the art of perceiving the energies of objects and environments and of transforming them into positive vibration in order to allow the residents of a home to live and develop healthily. Qi-Mag Feng Shui does not distinguish between positive and negative forms of energy, but between left-turning and right-turning energies.
Left- and right-turning energies
Left-turning energies are not good for us, since they are moving upwards and can therefore disturb our balance. Right-turning energies go downwards and so can ground and balance us. In a place of right-turning energies, everything sooner or later transforms into this affirmative form of energy. If a place, on the other hand, is heavily loaded with left-turning energies, even the healthiest body will sooner or later suffer a loss of energy, because the body is wrapped up in the left-turning surrounding and has to fight for survival. Qi-Mag consultants are specialized in strengthening the places of right-turning energy and transforming the left-turning places and objects into affirmative vibration (right-turning energies).

Law of resonance

In the belief of Taoism, everything is vibration, nothing is permanent or firm, but everything is in constant change and in resonance with its own consciousness. Destructive energies can therefore become manifest in the outside, as well as affectionate and beneficial energies do. Consequently, we always attract in the outside what we are in resonance with inside. To actively take the lead in your life, there are two ways: One way is to work on oneself. This way, one’s environment will accordingly improve over time. The other way is to consciously analyze one’s environment and change it in a way that the inner ambition is able to bloom in it. So Feng Shui is all about detecting a destructive and straining outside matrix, harmonizing it and positively transforming it. The goal is to bring human beeings back into resonance with life, with vitality, harmony, joy, and the desired flow of life.

Cosmic Qi & oxygen

Cosmic Qi is the energy that flows through all creatures and brings them to life. You can imagine it as tiny particles which originate in cosmos and eventually arrive on earth, where they merge with oxygen. Qi is not only in the bodies of all creatures, it is also found in the earth atmosphere or deep down in the ground. Electronic smog, radio pollution, geopathic stress zones and unfavourable symbols and shapes often result in a poor Qi and oxygen level, therefore in a great loss of vitality and joy, and consequently in disease and misfortune. Feng Shui is about taking particular measures and using positive symbols, for instance fountains, to negatively ionize the air and increase the Qi and oxygen level, in order to enable human beeings to optimize their quality of life.

Alignment – focus

Qi energy is believed to follow one’s consciousness. When we consiously use a symbol, then it acts like a message to the universe and automatically attracts the symbolized subject. Naturally, the personal clarity and decision-making is therefore very important. Quantum physics are meanwhile acknowledging this principle. Feng Shui is taking advantage of this exact energy.
Feng Shui offers the outstanding opportunity to consciously create new space for the personal and professional life. Space for personal development, joy, and success! It is a path that can lead you into unexpected abysmal depths, in order then to make you soar into the sky like a phoenix.
