How to Use the Ancient Art of Chinese Feng Shui

Jun 11, 2008
We are hearing more about alternative practices these days than ever before and people are becoming increasingly open minded. Many people are interested in the ancient science and art that is feng shui. They want to know whether it can really bring vitality and positive energy into their lives and help with such things as health, wealth and overall happiness.

Chinese feng shui is not a magic bullet to bring bags of money to your doorstep or miraculously cure your ailments. There are however many positive benefits that you can receive when applying Chinese feng shui principles to your life. Let's have a closer look at some of these.

Chinese feng shui encourages harmony and peace within the home. It encourages people to de-clutter both their lives and their homes. It is impossible to tell other people what can and cannot be considered clutter in their homes because, as the saying goes, "one man's trash is another man's treasure". Chinese feng shui is used to encourage positive energy so anything that induces negative feelings or drains energy can be considered clutter.

You can apply this thought to your life as well as your material possessions. If you have a so-called friend, for example, who only calls you when she needs something and is usually over-emotional, do you really need this friend? If you feel exhausted and drained when she has finished speaking to you, is this person someone you need or can she be considered clutter? A so-called friend like this is just using you, taking everything and giving nothing in return. You should not feel bad about ending this particular friendship.

Since feng shui is based on traditional Chinese values, it tends to focus on ideals of working hard and applying yourself to career and family. These are positive ways to use your energy, and will help encourage positive energy to expand in your life. However, the way to apply these principles to your own life will be different for you than for other people. Think about the way to apply these values to your family and career.

Do you use your energy, resources and time to encourage strong family bonds? Do you see your family as deserving of your time and energy? Do you feel rewarded and happy when your family are in harmony and happy with one another? If you can understand and apply this Chinese feng shui principle that positive energy attracts more positive energy, you should work hard at strengthening your family bonds as much as you can.

Chinese feng shui places a lot of emphasis on color use, both in homes and other environments. You should be careful not to fall for myth and folklore when dealing with this aspect. There is no basis for a front red door being lucky or that certain colors bring wealth when liberally used in a certain room.

Colors in rooms and home areas are just used to create moods. Dark colors will calm and soothe and bright colors will create a feeling of energy.

In these few ways, you can see how Chinese feng shui can add positive energy and vitality in your own life.
