    Chapter One. What is Feng Shui? Feng Shui may seem like a very superstitious science but it is actually based on the very sensible notion that living with rather than against nature benefits both humans and the environment. It is all about how to create good energy (also called Chi) in your life so that you can manifest positive things into your immediate sphere.

    The art and science of Feng Shui also recognizes that our lives are deeply affected by our physical and emotional environments. If we surround ourselves with symbols of negation, contempt and indifference toward life and nature and choose to live in places that are actually repugnant to the human soul then we will attract misfortune.

    Hard edges, uncomfortable furniture and clutter create

    what is called "sha" or "shar" which are the Chinese words for "bad energy." However if we trade in noise, concrete, mess and other agitating elements for organization, cleanliness and objects that are an expression of the sweeter things in life such as art, beauty and order, then we will ennoble our souls as well as our environment.

    The theory is that the kind of energy that we surround

    ourselves with creates more of the same energy. If we court negative qualities our homes can become a fertile breeding ground for such woes as cash flow problems and relationship troubles. The theory behind Feng Shui is that some of these

    2004 Melissa Coleman Page 6

  • Feng Shui Secrets Revealed

    problems can be remedied simply by organizing your space so that Chi (good energy) is allowed to freely flow through your life. The literal translation of the Chinese word Feng Shui (pronounced fung-shway) means wind and water. The combination of these two elements creates good "chi." In Chinese culture, gentle wind and smooth water have always been associated with a good harvest and good health, while harsh winds and stagnant water have been linked to famine and disease. Therefore, "good" feng-shui has come to mean good livelihood and fortune, and "bad" feng-shui has come to mean hardship and bad luck.

    The purpose of Feng Shui is to comprehend and control the natural flow of energy in order to design houses and workplaces that harmonize with the environment instead of clashing with it. A feng shui "cure" (which might involve the placing of a mirror to double the size of a space or the removal of a heavy object from a sector of a room) promotes the flow of positive energy by neutralizing or avoiding negative or destructive energy.

    Like traditional Chinese medicine, feng-shui has a rich and subtle tradition with a standardized body of knowledge that takes years of formal training to master. To be frank, you can't become a feng shui master overnight. However there are some steps you can take to learn how to diagnose if your space as problems and try to improve the overall "vibe" of your environment.

    This principle that you must raise your own vibration is

    part of ancient Taoist and Buddhist teachings. The more you raise your own vibration, above the grossness of such elements as clutter and chaos, the more you personally will be able to

    2004 Melissa Coleman Page 7

    draw things to you that consist of a higher vibration such as career opportunities, a healthy lifestyle, mentors, good friends and soul mates.

    History of Feng Shui

    The roots of Feng Shui can be traced back to several thousand years ago, to the teachings of China's shamans, diviners and great kings who established the three components that make up the entire science of feng shui: The Feng Shui Compass or Bagua which consists of eight

    directions (North, South, East, West, Northeast, Northwest, Southwest and the Southeast).

    The Pa kua, which consists of the eight major trigrams that

    are, found in the ancient divination text the I Ching.

    The Theory of Change. These concepts of transformation that are found in the I Ching that describe which elements destroy or enhance another element. A knowledge of these basic cycles can help you create a destructive or positive cycle of fortune in your life.

    In prehistoric China, the compass was originally used for

    navigation. This navigational compass would be modified later for use in feng shui.

    At the beginning of the Chou dynasty (1122-207 BC), Emperor Wen first used the pa kua as a tool to describe and define patterns of change in the natural world. By the eighth century BC, the Chinese were using the pa kua and the theory of change to design their cities and feudal landscapes to bring wealth and peace to a kingdom.

    The study of kan yu became part of the science of Feng Shui during The Han dynasty (206 BCE-219 CE) Kan means "mountains"and yu means "low places." Kan yu was the study of the energy of landforms and how they affect individuals who live next to these forms. It was durin
