“A lot of people only consider how big the inside of their houses are and miss- what-is-outside in the surrounding environment..”
The entrance of the house is very important and in fact the quality of the entrance is equal to how good the house is. When looking for a house, we usually would like to have enough space at the front.
Sometimes you can see big houses that have a fountain in front and have enough space for cars to come in and drive round in a circular way. Sometimes these houses have a mountain behind.
These houses are usually good as they have enough space to let the energy come in. Things do not feel tight.
Unfortunately, many houses have that problems. These problems arise because no one has considered the entrance, only the inside.
You find many houses that open directly onto the street. When you step out the door you step straight onto the street, this is more like a shop. In this kind of house, the people will feel very tight, and in terms of finances, they will have no money left, no matter how hard they work. (more…)
Feng Shui, simply means Wind and Water. Together these two elements affect the life of every living thing in our world. If you are my friends in Karate Martial Arts class at MC, you probably should have a chance to gain some knowledge about Qi from Sensei Hardman (whom I’m greatly thankful for first introducing to me about Qi), and its practice called Qigong – the Internal Training.
If you are not, to define the the Qi (Vital Energy – chee) term may become a little difficult. It’s almost the same as the story of a blind man who surely said he knew about the elephant. He could touch the trunk, the legs, the tail, the ear of the elephant and believed that how the elephant looked like, but it is not the elephant. The same thing applies to Qi, it’s much bigger than the word itself. Every occasion one tries to understand Qi, it maybe different from time to time. Qi in our body is the energy that keeps us alive, to keep our heart beating, our brain functions, our mind conscious and our body moving. (more…)
Feng Shui covers many different things.
It does not just apply to the overall location of a building and its surroundings, it also applies to each and every room within that building.
One of the most important rooms in your home is your bedroom. It is very important to have good Feng Shui here as you spend so much time asleep in it.
It is during this time bad energy will effect you most.
As a renown Feng Shui disciple, Master Tse has to travel to many different places in the world to teach and demonstrate the arts. As a result he is used to sleeping in different hotels, different beds and various types of accommodation. Whenever he stays somewhere new, the first thing he does is check the Feng Shui of the room.
The following article describes some of his point of view to the Feng Shui of bedroom and how it affects the body.
The first thing I check is the air in the room, is it clean and fresh and can I open the window?
Is the air outside fresh? I check the air because air is Qi, so if the air is no good, then the room cannot be good for my health.
The next thing I check is the bed. A soft bed is usually not good for your posture, and the next day, when you wake up you might feel stiff or still feel tired.
When the bed is too soft, it will make your posture curved and then the Qi and the blood will not flow so the next day you still feel sleepy.
To be able to predict the future using the Yijing takes a great deal of skill and a lot of experience. If you can do it, you could become very powerful! However, nature tends to balance everything, don’t think all your dreams will come true.
When we study the Yijing, our knowledge of the Five Flements must be very clear. First of all we must understand which element creates which element and which element controls which element, since these are the basics. If not we cannot understand the whole philosophy of the Yijing.
For example, if you see a lump of stone, you should know it belongs to the element Earth, if you see a wooden table you should know it belongs to the element Wood and there should be no confusion. So the chart of the Five Elements is very important: you should know it off by heart.
As another example, suppose you see a car; this is not on the chart and so it does not seem to belong to any element. However, since it was made by a machine means it belongs to the Metal element – this is correct. Many of the things we see at first do not appear to belong to any element, or might belong to more than one element. If you see a car parked in a garage you can say it belongs to Metal, but if you are walking along and a car drives by you, it might belong to Fire or Wind, you have to understand the situation. The car shoots past you like fire, creating a rush of wind.
