In winter, we spend more time indoors than outdoors. And since Corona and home office, many of us leave the house or flat even less. This makes it all the more important to have a beautiful home in which you feel safe and comfortable. With Feng Shui, a millennia-old harmony theory from China, you can change your well-being in your own four walls or individual rooms.
Feng Shui is pronounced Fong Schweyi and literally means wind (Feng) and water (Shui). Chi, the force or energy that flows through the entire cosmos, plays a central role in the theory of harmony. The aim of Feng Shui is to allow the Chi to flow uninhibited through the living space. When the energy flows neither too fast nor too slow, we feel safe and secure. There are various teachings such as the teachings of the five elements earth, fire, wood, metal and water, which describe the states of Chi. All elements need to be in harmony to improve the flow of energy. If a room lacks wood, a parquet floor could strengthen the Chi.
Feng Shui consultants work with a Feng Shui compass (Bagua), analyse the light spectrum and arrange gardens, houses, rooms or flats with the right shapes, colours and materials. To do this, they divide the floor plan into so-called houses, which are grouped around the Tai Chi. Tai Chi is the centre, symbolises health and balance and should be left free. The eight other houses represent eight important areas of life: Family, helpful friends, career, children, partnership, wealth, fame and knowledge. This plan is called a bagua and is laid over the floor plan and assigns corners, areas or rooms to the individual houses so that the chi flows freely. However, you can already change and positively influence a lot with simpler measures.
There is no patent remedy and no one-size-fits-all solution. But with these ten simple tips you can improve the energy flow in your home - without a Feng Shui consultant...
Feng Shui also works without symbols. The life energy chi flows even without Buddha statues, chimes or crystals if you furnish your house or flat according to the harmony theory.
It is important for the energy flow that all elements are in balance. Then they strengthen the Chi. A brief overview of the five elements, their colours and what you can influence with them:
Feng Shui is independent of your living style. The theory of harmony works just as well in an old house as in a new flat - regardless of whether you have furnished your home in a modern or country style.
