What The Heck Is Feng Shui?

Water-Ocean-Chi

The term “Feng Shui” literally means Wind Water; Wind is direction, Water is energy.

There are two main types of Feng Shui  

Authentic, classical, traditional Feng Shui and Western Feng Shui also known as Black Hat Tibetan Feng Shui.

Western Feng Shui has been around since the mid 60’s  

Western Feng Shui uses lots of symbolic objects such as purple pillows, bamboo flutes, Mandarin ducks, turtles, and numerous pretty gimmicks. It emphasizes the use of colors and provides the same simplistic diluted cookie-cutter version of Feng Shui for everybody.

Western Feng Shui does not require the use of a Luo Pan, or Chinese compass, and pretends all homes are oriented the same way regardless of their actual orientation.

If your Feng Shui practitioner doesn’t show up  at your front door with a Chinese compass, you are not going to experience genuine, classical, scientific Feng Shui. The Luo Pan is a complex and beautiful instrument; it is used to measure directional energy. It is the quintessential tool of a classical Feng Shui practitioner.

Classical Feng Shui is a 4,000 year old art and living science

… that follows well-defined principles and very sophisticated and complex methods to harmonize people with their environment and enhance their life through energy. Classical Feng Shui utilizes one’s natural environment based on the site’s landforms, the Five Elements, architectural design, the building’s inhabitants, directions, temporal placement and the cycles of time. Mountains and water forms are examined in one’s local setting to identify the flow of energy. No guessing with classical Feng Shui.

So What Does Classical Feng Shui Do? 

Classical Feng Shui is very complex. It improves health, wealth, relationships and every aspect of your life in order to thrive. It offers a large spectrum of formulas and tools to build wealth in all its aspects and helps attract the best in your life.

Classical Feng Shui:

  • brings success,
  • protects you against misfortune,
  • generates opportunities,
  • enhances the quality of your life,
  • creates the best flow of benevolent Qi/chi, the best balance of yin and yang, the most auspicious use of space in accordance with energies present, by mitigating negative energies and enhancing positive energies.

Feng Shui is not a miracle cure but when used properly with the One World Feng Shui highly personalized approach, it can bring amazing results to your life by clearing away blockages and carve channels of benevolent energy in your wealth, health and relationships.

That’s a lot!
