All About Feng Shui

The metaphysical practice of feng shui originated in China thousands of years ago. Like gravity, it affects everyone. Feng Shui is part of nature. It is the understanding that your immediate interior and exterior surroundings can have a predictable influence on you. Feng Shui is a system for determining how both seen and unseen aspects to your environment can influence your health, your mental and emotional states, and your financial potential.

For lack of a more scientific term, we often describe the benefits of Feng Shui as making someone “luckier.” Luck actually means something very different in Chinese metaphysics, but we can say that this natural phenomenon is based on addressing the living environment as a way to help people and communities thrive.

Some aspects of Feng Shui, as it is practiced today, date back thousands of years from China. There are also indications that even older civilizations from India and the Middle-East had the same awareness and shared it with the Chinese. Still, other techniques in practice today may only be hundreds of years old.

Because traditional feng shui is partly based on space-time theory, Kartar coined the phrase “astrology for architecture” to describe the time and space aspect to how feng shui works. An energy field is created in every structure based on when it was built and what direction it faces. Feng Shui has historically been called Chinese Geomancy, but geomancy is a completely separate discipline. Energies from the earth below combine with energies from the Sun and other celestial forces to create a magnetic field inside every house or building. Natural landscapes as well as man-made objects can also influence this energetic blueprint.
