The Qi of Feng Shui
Qi Is The Energy Of Life
Qi (pronounced "chi" in English) is the subtle energy that surrounds, supports, and influences everything around you. You probably thought you took care of that when you took your shower this morning. Well, Qi is something else altogether. What we're referring to here is an energy that is subtle, all pervasive and truly, the stuff of life.
Feng Shui is the art and practice of directing this subtle energy to inspire and create positive changes in your life. This ancient practice offers techniques that are an active approach to dealing directly with Qi. There are various Schools or Hats of Feng Shui and they can be confusing. Even consultants and practitioners have a difficult time agreeing on the systems to use and when to use them.
However, you can get positive results whenever you want simply through activating the favorable energies that are always available to you. Find your personal favorable energy directions and put this potent energy to work for you everywhere in and around your home, business or office. Find and engage the full potency of your Heavenly Luck, Human Luck and Earthly Luck.
Feng Shui describes Heavenly Luck as the luck you are born with. The placement of the stars and planets at the time of your birth influences this kind of luck. Heavenly Luck is the congregation of planetary and solar energies at the time of your birth that aid or hinder your earthly path. Heavenly Luck also influenced the circumstances of your parents and the cultural and economic conditions surrounding your birth.
Imagine the Earth is an energy grid that changes subtly, day to day, hour to hour, moment to moment. This grid changes as the Earth's proximity to the sun and the other planets in our solar system changes. The rotation of our solar system through the galaxy and all of the magnetic energy fields of all of these systems we move through, combine to affect the Earth's magnetic field. A snapshot of all of these energies, at the moment of your birth, presents you with a magnetic blue print as unique as your own fingerprints.
You are an energy field and you have an impact on other energy fields. Other energy fields affect you such as other people, places and things. Moreover, all of this works in much the same way that musical notes, colors and aromas are either pleasant or unpleasant depending upon the person experiencing them. Lawrence Welk, MTV and the Comedy Channel have entirely different audiences. "Duh!" you say, well now that that's clear, we can move on.
Our Human Luck is the luck we make ourselves by the application of effort to study, learn and achieve a goal. My husband couldn't dance if his life depended on it so maybe there is an exception. However, aside from this, Human Luck consists of your personal motivation and capacity to persevere, endure and focus your concentration on a subject or task until you have done what you set out to do.
Your Human Luck is the accumulation of your personal efforts in all respects. Your past, your education, upbringing, life experiences and all your thoughts have combined to give you the Human Luck you are currently experiencing.
The thoughts you think now and the actions you take now create your future luck. You can change your future and your fortune! Every effort you make now to enhance your Human Luck also paints the canvas of your future. Using Feng Shui techniques, you can raise your Human Luck to new heights.
Earthly Luck is the luck available from your environment. It can support you 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. Understanding and using Feng Shui, you can engage and activate the support of your Earthly Luck.
Your Gua Number
Based on your birth date, you have four favorable and four unfavorable directions. And I'm not talking about the direction you have to take everyday on the freeway. No, these directions are favorable or unfavorable for the placement of things in your home or office, like your bed or desk.
If you have a child who is performing poorly at school, check out the placement of their bed. Perhaps they're sleeping in their Total Loss direction. If so, they might not be able to get a good night's sleep. Without good sleep they can't perform well during the day. Favorable and unfavorable directions have an influence and importance for you according to the amount of time you spend in a space. Like Human Luck, you can change your Earthly Luck through your actions and intentions.
The Fortune Compass
When you apply Feng Shui principles based on accurate compass readings and a variety of specific calculations, they can indeed activate your Human and Earthly Luck and help you achieve your personal and professional goals. The Fortune Compass gives you immediate access to your fortunate and favorable energies. It is a modern tool that utilizes a traditional approach to Feng Shui that has been practiced for over 4000 years in China. This technology is now part the 21st Century.
Among all the schools and methods that use Feng Shui, the one constant is an awareness of and appreciation for the impact that Qi has on your very precious human life. Learning to activate and enhance this energy in your life and the lives of your loved ones is what the Fortune Compass will help you accomplish.
