WHAT IS FENG SHUI?

Feng Shui, an ancient Chinese discipline, studies and explores the relationship between space and man, in a way that it perceives the space in which we live and work as a material body that unites both our desires and aspirations, as well as blockages and limitations.

The goal of Feng Shui is not only to establish a balance of this relationship on the outside, but also on the inside, in terms of achieving balance within man himself.

Feng Shui (pronounced as ˌfʌŋˈʃweɪ) literally translates into wind (Feng) and water (Shui). The translation of this unusual name is associated with the fact that the two most active, predominantly yang, elements in nature are the water and the wind which, with their slow, but inexorable action change and shape the natural environment.

Or as the Chinese would put it: “The wind blows up Qi (vital energy), and the water attracts and retains it.”

Nowadays, Feng Shui can greatly help us recognize, become aware of and reach out to our inner instincts which we have partially or completely neglected due to various factors.

The reason for this can be sought in our upbringing, life in civilization, the stress of the modern age and the focus on things outside of ourselves. This has brought us to the point where we no longer recognise the “messages” that come to us “from within.” In this sense, Feng Shui means knowing and being able to recognise the rhythms of nature, to understand what it “tells“ us through the environment and, in accordance with the knowledge of the energy type, to create and build conformations that will support us in the best possible way.

We clearly understand that we receive the information from the environment on an unconscious level, the information that can produce the feeling of comfort or discomfort in us, and accordingly we recognise Feng Shui as a discipline that explores the effects that the environment has on the human body and psyche.

By the term „environment“ we mean the climate of a certain area, the presence of water masses such as oceans, seas and rivers, mountains and hills, and the elements brought into it by man, such as buildings, roads, highways, railways, etc.

At the same time, Feng Shui studies the influence of man on nature. It is a process that goes both ways.

Why Feng Shui?

Feng Shui, among other things, is applied to determine the best position for the construction of houses, buildings, apartments, as well as their exterior and interior design.

When choosing the premises (residential/commercial), we often turn a deaf ear to an inner voice/intuition that warns us that a particular place is not very suitable for us. This often comes as a result of the compromises that we have to resort to, due to the lack of financial resources in the vast majority of cases.

How many times have we felt squeezed in our own space and how often have we had to put up with some situations or even with the layout of rooms and furniture that was not to our liking, everything in order to reach a compromise that should have brought us some benefit?

However, there is always a “but.”

If living in the space that deeply disturbs us and in which we do not feel satisfied drags on, it leads to a constant tension that can manifest itself with problems – first hormonal, caused by stress compensation through the endocrine system, the pains of different kinds, the feelings of weakness, fatigue, depression, tension, anger, the feeling that something is constantly wrong, all the way to the lack of creativity, the lack of persistence and the lack of self-esteem.

However, if the position and the layout inside and outside of the space corresponds to our internal requirements and the fulfillment of our internal norms, we will feel satisfied and we will be more willing to lead an active and successful life in all of its segments – from emotional to financial and social.

Home = Body

The house/the home represents the mirror of our life and our existence, the reflection of ourselves, and in material terms it represents what is happening to us.

Our home should be the place that will provide us and our family with rest, that will support us energetically and thus allow us to feel physically and mentally well. Similarly, the place where we work should support and encourage us to achieve our business goals.

The environment in which we live and work is the information field from which, by applying Feng Shui, we can read the state of our health, in what ways our past blocks us, how our family affects us, whether we have more or less choices and thus a greater or a smaller possibility to act upon our future, what our partnerships and other relationships are like. It points us to blockages and the ways how to remove them or to prevent the impact that they have had on us so far.

Comparison of the house and the body

Feng Shui cultivates a holistic approach. The house is an energy being that is treated in a comprehensive way.

As in acupuncture, by which the acupuncturist ensures that the energy in the meridians of the body flows, that it freely runs and feeds all the parts of the body in the best way, the Feng Shui consultant checks the flow and the retention of high-quality energy in the examined space, the layout of rooms, the external and internal conformations, and so on.

Based on that, he or she gives suggestions and solutions for how to create more harmonious living and working conditions.

Our physical body is structured in such a way that almost all of its activity is associated with the front part of the body in the sense that we walk (almost always) forward, use our hands forward, eat, watch, talk forward, while the back of the body is ``firmer`` (back spine), less active, yet stronger compared to the front part of the body, so that we could almost say that it has the role of the protector of the body.

Residential/working space is perceived in the same way.

The front of the house is related to the future that we are heading towards, and the back of the house is connected with our past, with the roots from which we descend. Therefore, the back of the house should be calmer, it should give the sense of protection, stability and security and, generally speaking, it should be a little bit more closed, while the front part, which represents the future, possibilities, realization and so on, should generally be more open.

In short, when the relationship between the body and the space is in harmony, i.e. in a harmonious relationship with what surrounds it (other buildings in the area, roads, external forms) in such a way that it is ``fed`` by the environment with good, high-quality and vital energy (for example, when the space “breaths”, when it has the natural light and when it is surrounded by harmonious forms), then such space provides support to the people who live or work in it. If something prevents, partially or completely, the body-space relationship from receiving the amount of energy that it needs to function well, or if the energy that comes in is of poor quality, then blockages and problems manifest themselves.
