Feng shui along with Qi Gong is another pillar of Traditional Chinese Medicine – TCM, and is based on the same principles of the five-element cycle, where the elements of Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water all work harmoniously together to create an environment that is supportive, nourishing and allows you to thrive in all areas of your life. Feng Shui has intrigued me since I first picked up a book about it when I was a teenager. It made so much sense to me that our surroundings affect how we feel and together with my interest in natural remedies and Chinese medicine, so began my health journey, not only in my body but in all the homes I have lived in. Feng shui (meaning "wind" and "water"), is an ancient Chinese art and science that is based on harmonising the flow of energy, or Qi, in your home and environment so that it supports your ability to prosper and thrive. Many people believe that it is all furniture arrangement and Chinese trinkets but there really is so much more to Feng Shui than they realise. There are different layers of feng shui, the most advanced dealing with mathematical formulas to calculate the positions of unseen energies that can affect your wellbeing. Feng Shui, just like Qi Gong is based on the theory that everything is energy - this theory is supported by quantum physics of today. Regardless, any adjustment to the energy in your body and surroundings, will have an effect on you, put this together with applying manifestation techniques of intention, positive thinking, and belief, this will help to speed up the process with more astounding results. Some people ask if Feng Shui “really works”? – Well, if you don’t believe it will work for you, then why would you invest your time, money, and energy into it? I practice a classical school of Feng Shui, with methods in Form, Compass, Flying Star and Westernised Black hat, bringing together my knowledge of Qi Gong and TCM, I also offer a unique approach to incorporate not only your home and surroundings but your physical and mental health too, with the Five Element Health Check. Form School was traditionally used in Ancient China to select auspicious sites for building cities and burying the dead based on the surrounding land formations and waterways. Today it is used to determine whether the location of a house is auspicious by its surroundings such as the road, neighbouring buildings, and features in the garden. It also applies to how the placement of furniture inside the house encourages the most beneficial flow of energy. Compass School Using the Bagua, a pattern comprised of eight trigrams, and the influence of the type of energy that is associated with the relative compass directions of the home. It also takes into account a person’s auspicious directions which are calculated based on their date of birth and gender. Flying Star School is considered the most advanced form of feng shui as it is based on mathematics and looks at the effect of the different energies at play during different periods of time on a building. This practise uses a Lo Shu grid containing an arrangement of numbers and analyses the interaction of those numbers and their meanings as they systematically move positions according to the different compass directions and time periods. Black Hat – Westernised feng shui, is an extremely simplified version of Feng Shui and can be used as a quick remedy if you cannot access compass directions and a great tool to have on hand if you are just beginning to learn about energies and in particular, Feng Shui. It takes it’s readings from the Front Door of the home/building and does not use mathematical calculations or compass directions. Black Hat honours the energy of the space (house, office, building etc.) and Compass honours the energy of the Earth (upon which the space is built).
