Feng Shui was developed over 4,000 years ago with a great respect for all of nature including the movement of wind (Feng) and water (Shui). It is the Chinese art of creating positive and harmonious surroundings by working with the natural energy within the home. Feng Shui works with the circulation and flow of chi (the basic life force energy of the universe), the elements (water, metal, earth, wood and fire) and the complementary and opposing forces of yin and yang (the two balanced aspects of the greater whole). Honouring the balance of chi supports our connectedness to the Earth.
This circle is divided into yin and yang - two opposing forces that are absolutely essential to each other. Yin and yang are two different but balanced aspects of one whole and neither is better or worse than the other. The Yin Yang symbol represents ever constant, ever changing activity and that each half contains an element of its opposite to show that they are in a state of balance and harmony.
Think of yang as active energy - masculine, hard, fast, bright and light colours, warm, loud and dry. While yin energy is passive - feminine, soft, dark and muted colours, curved lines, quiet, dim lighting, moist, cool and still. Both are equally important in our lives. Keep in mind the use of a room or area when making adjustments. An office should be more yang whereas a bedroom should be more yin. Balancing the chi in our environment assists us in finding the balance and harmony we seek in our lives.
As you start the process of creating more positive energy in your life you need to be aware of the flow of chi (energy) around you. By looking at your life you can review the amount of balance in your life. The forces of yin and yang must be balanced to achieve harmony.
Print the Life Satisfaction Tool
Use the Life Satisfaction Tool to assess which areas of your life are flowing smoothly and which you would like to change. Consider each section of the pie as one of 9 areas of your life and within each life area, rate your current level of satisfaction on a scale of 1-10. With 1 being the centre of the pie and 10 being the outside circle, shade in the rating in each of the 9 areas.
When you have completed the shading for each area you will have a picture of your life. If your life is in balance, all areas will be equal and the wheel will turn smoothly. If there are areas of imbalance, the wheel will be irregular causing a bumpy ride. This can help you to prioritize which areas of your life you want to improve.
Feng Shui is based on the principle that your space reflects your life. The Bagua is a mental tool or map that is used to determine the placement of nine life areas as they are represented in your space. The nine sections of the Bagua correspond to the 9 life areas in the Life Satisfaction Tool as follows:
Print The Bagua
This map can be placed over a building or home, a garden, an individual room or even a desktop. The front door, entrance, or door to the room or the location of your chair determines the orientation.
You can then use the principles of Feng Shui in the area of the Bagua that you want to make positive changes. Remember that your intuition is always your best guide. If you feel that a placement or change needs to be in a certain area trust that feeling - even if it does not correspond to the Bagua.
Bagua Specific Energy Cures
Soul*ar Energy has created 9 Bagua-specific light catchers , each comprised of the resonant colour, element, shape and gemstones designed to balance and energize your selected Bagua area.
Faceted Feng Shui Balls
All Feng Shui Bagua Light Catchers have a Swarovski faceted prism to disperse and deflect negative chi. The main purpose of faceted crystal balls in Feng Shui is to transmute energy. When hard (negative) energy enters the ball, the facets deflect the energy, breaking it up and turning it into gentle (positive) energy. Faceted crystals can be hung in windows to shift any hard chi entering your home into positive energy. They can also be used in hallways or corridors to slow down fast-moving chi, or to reduce the bad energy transmitted by "poison arrows" such as those from sharp corners.
