The ancient Feng Shui masters insisted that all life on Earth can harmoniously exist only through the presence of Qi energy. In their view, Qi is a living spirit that fills the world with positive energy.
According to this theory, Qi enters the human body through the chakras. Then, the energy spreads evenly throughout the body along the energy channels the active points are located. By acting on these points with acupuncture or acupressure, it is possible to influence the passage rate of energy, restore health, and adjust an individual’s energy field.
The distribution of Chi energy over the Earth occurs along the energy meridians. Nature has its own “chakras.” Therefore, you need to choose a place for building a house after a careful analysis of the quality and directions of the energy flow. There are no straight lines in nature; therefore, the energy flow of Qi moves along a winding line, smoothly bending around all landscape obstacles (hills, mountains). If, in the process of human life, the landscape changes, then the energy map of the area also changes.
In those places where Qi flows freely and without hindrance, the land there is fertile, and people are prosperous. But if there are obstacles on the path of the energy flow, Qi flows unevenly; then the earth is dry and lifeless.
In places of its unobstructed and smooth flow, Qi has a beneficial effect on the surrounding space. But where the energy stagnates, Qi turns into stagnant Sha – energy with Yin properties. When Qi flows with acceleration, the energy flow is too active in a straight line and turns into Sha energy with Yang properties. Therefore, Sha is the same Chi energy, but negative characteristics (either too active or passive). The unfavorable Sha energy has a detrimental effect on the space, which affects the quality of life and the well-being of the people living there.
In ancient times, any element of the landscape was personified with one of the Heavenly mythical animals. The black turtle, for example, represents stability and balance. With the help of a strong shell, the turtle covers the central area of the landscape design from interference from the rear. The dragon can climb high into the clouds, collecting information about the world. Phoenix represents inspiration and risk. The energy of the Tiger is uncontrollable and aggressive. The snake is careful and wise and occupies a central position (it is covered from all four sides by the Turtle, Dragon, Tiger, and Phoenix).
Favorable places to live include:
- the southern slope of the hill and the hollow between 2 mountains, i.e. the meeting place of the Dragon and the Tiger.
- a place in the center of low hills, where a horseshoe is formed – the rear is covered by the Turtle, the Tiger and Dragon are on guard on the sides, and the Phoenix Bird directs energy to the center. It is important that Mount Dragon (in the east) is higher than Mount Tigris (in the west). In such a place, Qi accumulates and does not stagnate, there is always an influx of fresh energy.
Qi is a source of abundance and prosperity. If Qi is scattered, then abundance and prosperity are scattered. Therefore, places blown by winds from all four cardinal directions are considered unfavorable for life.
Good Feng Shui is possessed by the places where the water flows. However, mountain rivers, waterfalls, and manufactured canals accelerate Qi. Polluted and duckweed lakes, creeks, and ponds negatively affect the quality of energy flows.
If the surrounding landscape does not match good Feng Shui, there is no need to despair. Any errors in the landscape can be corrected, and the movement of energy flows redirected using such Feng Shui tools as street lamps, artificial hills, and reservoirs. By improving the Feng Shui of the surrounding space, you will thus bring harmony and prosperity into your life.
