Feng Shui is the study of energy flow and guiding “chi” or positive energy into your home or work space. Feng Shui comes from Chinese geomancy that is the study of Feng (wind or the Dragon’s Breath) and Shui (water, or the water Dragon). The birth of Feng Shui was in 840AD with Hsien-Sheng, the imperial Feng Shui master.

Feng Shui incorporates a range of different elements and belief systems that take years to perfect. The main elements in basic Feng Shui incorporate the 5 elements of Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood. There is also the balance of the 4 directions divided into the heraldic animals: black tortoise, red bird, green dragon and white tiger. There is also the balancing of the yin and yang energies and the eight mansions.

Your Feng Shui practitioner will request a copy of your house plan if you have one. Often they will want this before the consultation so they can make notes. They will also require the dates of birth of those occupying the home and when the house was built.

Your Feng Shui consultant will need to have access to your property and will expect you present so they can ask you questions along the way. They will walk through your home and ask you to make changes as you do the walk through. They may ask you to remove mirrors, put items away, or fix things that are broken.

You will meet again with your Feng Shui consultant after about 1-2 weeks as they put their findings into a report for you. In the report will be a basic layout of your home and things you need to add, remove or change to encourage the right type of energy in your home.

Every year as the Chinese New Year comes around your personal energy and those occupying the house will shift. It is good to have your consultant come back every 12 months to do the subtle changes to continue the right energy to flow.

Feng Shui encourages the Chi in your home and those who occupy it:

  • Expect better health
  • Positive opportunities
  • Better sleep
  • Improved relationships
  • Better flow of income or sustaining wealth
  • Have a home that feels good and right
