WHY USE FENG SHUI ?
Feng Shui is based on a Taoist vision and understanding of nature, particularly on the idea that the land is alive and filled with chi energy. Feng Shui and the cultivation of physical health and mental clarity are all integral to the practice of Taoism. The Taoist art, is a method of helping ourselves and others to live according to the Way of Heaven, so that universal harmony will be preserved.
Most people start the day with a positive attitude of anticipation and focus. However, for some people, whether they be a house wife/husband, unemployed, mother, business person, self-employed or employee, there are unforeseen or unplanned events or transactions which means they expend energy. More than they’d planned. If not by the end of the morning, day, month, quarter it is easy to become behind or diverted from where we wanted to be.
This can result in stress, not harmful in small doses but detrimental if long term and may include other factors for example combating peer pressure. These effects are not age dependent either and can affect adults or children. If this happens, physical health and mental clarity are all no longer integral. We can feel out of balance or in the worst cases overwhelmed. This in turn may lead to irritability, manifest in reduced patience and tolerance and an altogether less nurturing environment, which in turn impacts on those around us. Peace, tranquility, serenity is what some look for. We may attempt to retreat to a place where each person can rebalance their yin and yang, rejuvenate and harmonise with their environment.
A critical place to achieve this is the home. A house is just a physical structure a home is a space that has been created where you feel safe, secure and at peace, you can let go of the day’s challenges and hopefully come back to your strengths. Thus, achieve a nurturing and balanced role once more. The theories of yin and yang, as well as the five-feng shui elements, are some of the basic aspects of a feng shui analysis.
