Feng Shui Books
In the Yang Zhai Zhi Nan written by Jiang Da Hong during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911 AD) he stated “People today do not understand the importance of the Feng Shui of a house. Actually the effect of Feng Shui for houses is most fascinating. It can bring you prosperity and wealth; it can also help you promote to a higher position and give birth to great children. If you have not been compassionate and charitable, Heaven will not send the good master to tell you what to do.”
Xuan Kong Pai (Time-Space Feng Shui) was distinguished and being taught as far back as Guo Pu (276-324) during the Jin Dynasty. Far from being a ‘new age’ kind of thing, Time-Space Feng Shui has been around for a while and is based in thousands of years’ observation and experience of the impact of Qi on the lives of humans and other sentient beings. Although we can ‘prove’ these concepts in Quantum Physics the best proof is in the quality of our lives.
Most of the books on the shelves tell us that we should have the bedrooms in the back of the house away from the street. We should be able to place our bed (with a headboard) on a solid wall that is located so we can see the door without having to turn our head and without having our feet pointed toward the door.
However, that is not good enough.
We also need to know what kinds of Qi are in the areas of the home and in the areas of the bedroom. Then we need to know what kinds of forms are supporting or detracting from the Qi in the home and in the bedroom.
Still, that’s not enough.
We need to know the timeliness of the Qi and how it interacts with the individuals in the home. Then we can make informed decisions about the proper use of the space, the colors, textures, types of furniture, location of furniture, light fixtures, fabrics, and scents.
Just as there are many technical considerations in the architectural design of a home, there are many technical considerations in the Feng Shui design of a home. When you can put the two together you have a much higher quality space.
Feng Shui considers…
- The property
- The prevailing winds
- The climate
- The purpose of the structure
- The timeliness of the types of Qi involved
- As well as the Qi configurations and how they will impact people and their purpose
Feng Shui for Public Spaces
Can you imagine how powerful this is for city planning, community development, business complex development, hospitals, elder housing facilities of all types, and schools (just to name a few)?
What if we planned the school buildings and their relationship to each other in such a way that the teachers could impart their knowledge with ease and comfort and the students could learn more quickly with less stress?
What if there were a reduction in ADD and ADHD as a result of proper Feng Shui in the schools?
What if people could heal more quickly in the Feng Shui designed hospitals?
What if people could have more powerful relationships and enjoy better health longer as a result of properly built homes? Green building, healthy environmental practices, proper streets, highways, and freeway systems are all part of good Feng Shui.
Feng Shui for Today
Yes, even today, people do not understand the importance of Feng Shui. Perhaps it is time we learned the value and implemented Time-Space Feng Shui in our design as well as our existing properties.
