The principles of Feng Shui explain the interaction of people with their environment. Like the laws of Physics, they govern every aspect of human life from the surfaces and seemingly trivial features of our living space to our inner most aims and motivations and, ultimately, our physical and mental well being. Feng Shui, founded on the same lines as oriental medicine, propagates the basic idea that currents of energy travelling through the universe and linked to both space and time help to determine the context in which we live our lives maximising the potential for success at work and home.
When aligned and tuned properly the energy of a building can aid the progress or act as an obstacle. This can be corrected only by analysing the space and harmonising it in accordance with the principles of Feng Shui.
Adapting Feng Shui design while planning a new home, renovating or fine-tuning your existing premises does help to a great extent in overcoming obstacles, ensuring smooth flow of energy and creating abundance and harmony. Availing of proper advice and guidance in implementing such changes ensures that the positive benefits are experienced and the building exudes positive vibes both at home and in the office, that will strengthen you and attract the Feng Shui energies of wealth.
Identifying the good sectors based on the orientations of the building, compass directions and neighbourhood afflictions and countering the ill-effects of the bad sectors within the building is the basis of Authentic Feng Shui analysis. Directions are extremely important when it comes to Feng Shui design and layout. Feng Shui has eight basic directions — four that are considered primary and four that are secondary, further sub-divided into three parts which actually gives 24 directions as per the special Feng Shui compass that facilitates a perfect alignment, positioning and analysis of the property. This in turn helps in deciding the layout, room positioning and décor including placement of fixtures, furnishings, furniture and adapting the right colours pertaining to the specific sectors.
One of the primary concepts of Feng Shui interior design is energy, often referred to as Chi. Feng Shui interior design attempts to direct, retain and channel this energy in a way that is most beneficial to those using the room. This can be done by the placement of objects at different compass locations or by using furniture made of specific type of material.
- Make the building generally symmetrical in shape, and avoid angular protrusions.
- Choose smooth surfaces for interior walls as curved walls and surfaces also encourage positive flow of Chi.
- Keep a bamboo plant near your front door, it will attract goodness within, part of that goodness being financial security.
- Placing Gem trees, made of citrines, amethyst and quartz or jade, in the home and office is a good enhancer. The Prosperity Gem Tree signifies continual growth; Hence, it assists business people to acquire more wealth and helps to maintain the state of finances as well.
