FENG SHUI, the Chinese art of interior design
AUTHOR: NICOLE JOSS
FENG SHUI, the Chinese art of interior design, brings us success, health, and an “even” better life. Feng-Shui, literally translated as “wind-water,” is the art of living in harmony with the environment. Happiness, prosperity, and health increase. Feng-Shui teaches life in harmony with the five natural elements: earth, metal, water, wood, and fire.
Our world and our people are traversed by innumerable invisible but highly influential energy lines: CHI’s vital energy. Life energy is pure vibration that can be measured using frequencies. If our vibration is in the positive range, things get easier for us, and we feel good overall. Feng Shui tries to put the subtle energies of heaven and earth in the best possible relationship with us humans and our lives, especially at home or work.
Originally from China, Feng-Shui’s application has taken a unique path through Southeast Asia, the United States, and Europe. Large international companies around the world have built and furnished their office complexes following Feng Shui. The environment and the rooms affect us with their energies. Feng Shui shows how places, shapes, and cardinal points generate their specific energetic patterns and how these silently influence us.
The Feng Shui application analyzes and groups the forces of CH’I energy. Places of positive energy support us and collaborate in health, association, success, happiness, and harmony. Places of negative energy, Shar-ch’i, have an unfavorable effect on us. Therefore, Feng Shui consultants strongly recommend not sleeping, eating, working, or sitting any longer in such places.
Feng Shui’s practice can be used in almost all areas of our life and improves or optimizes our daily being. It is ideal when buying land or planning a building. More and more buyers, architects, and planners are working with a Feng Shui consultant.
There are countless possibilities and solutions to redesign or redecorate existing rooms and gardens according to the criteria of Feng Shui. How is Feng Shui determined?
The most important basis of Feng Shui is the Pakua, an octagonal symbol showing trigrams, cardinal points, and the elements of nature. Your Feng Shui will be calculated based on these principles to sift out favorable and unfavorable sectors. Favorable places are activated, the unfavorable ones deactivated. A simple redesign also reflects optically. All rooms, from singles to villas, seem clearer, more open, and harmonious.
With suitable colors, plants, and decorative elements, a large amount of positive CH’I is generated, which has a positive and unconscious effect.
