Feng Shui is all about creating a space and environment that exudes harmony. Recreating the feel of nature within a space is one of the key dynamics behind this practice. It’s not surprising that we often face bad energy due to our immediate surrounding and environment around our building. These may give rise to ill-fortune in relationships, wealth, legal and health matters.
We may not be able to correct our neighborhood and surroundings but we can surely adapt Feng Shui to counter ill effects and restore the harmony within our space. These corrective measures will go a long way in abating energy that is disturbing and enhance energy that feels good.
From subatomic particles to skyscrapers, from good vibes to auras, everything in the universe is said to be vibrating. Every bit of us is a vibrating energy and we live in an environment that is vibrating energy. Our personal vibrations interact with the vibrations of our environment including people, places and things. Art of Feng Shui helps in actively choosing or intending to engage with the favourable energy available to us at all times.
Feng Shui categorises life and events in a person’s life as Heaven Luck, Human Luck and Earth Luck.
Heaven Luck is the congregation of planetary and solar energies at the time of birth that aid or hinder your earthly path. It could also be construed as the place and family into which we are born which cannot be decided by us or controlled. Human Luck is the accumulation of personal efforts in all respects. Our past, education, upbringing, life experiences and thoughts and choices together give us Human Luck.
Earth Luck is the luck available from our immediate personal environment. It can support individual vibration frequency or offer challenges. It can appear in the form of struggles at work or the good fortune you encounter in finding your soul mate or anything in between.
In other words, even if a person is in possession of excellent Heaven Luck and Human luck, bad Earth Luck could be detrimental and cause misery.
When Feng Shui principles based on accurate compass readings and a variety of specific calculations are applied, they can indeed activate Human and Earth Luck and help achieve personal and professional goals with less resistance and obstacles.
To counter bad energies in a space one could try adapting crystals although classical Feng Shui employs many methods ranging from colour, light, sound, objects and placement of rooms and décor. Placing crystals in the four major corners of the home helps to conquer bad energy or bad luck, and bring plenty of wealth luck to the family
Feng Shui is the practice of placement and arrangement, and needs to be very accurate and detailed. For example, when one builds a new house, one should consider the orientation or facing direction of the house, the shape of the rooms and the arrangement of furniture. Therefore, it is no surprise that Feng Shui does show some positive traits and brings about a change in our lives when adapted and implemented accurately.
