Feng Shui for Beginners
Feng Shui (pronounced 'foung shway') is an ancient Chinese art of understanding the relationship between one's surroundings and how it affects personal health, wealth, and harmony. The physical placement and location of your dwellings, interior layout and landscape combined with the flow of chi can be harnessed to one's personal gain. Many might mistakenly categorize Feng Shui as geomancy, but upon closer inspection: one would realize they are two separate entities and are very loosely related. There are many different schools of Feng Shui whose respective focus and need for it will differ depending on the situation and one's aims. Grasping the basics of Feng Shui is very easy, but to fully master it would take a lifetime.
Feng Shui Item Basic Essentials
Though different solutions and remedies are needed depending on the situation, there are some Feng Shui items that you would need for each year. Most of these are remedies for afflictions that occur for each and every single home/office/location.
Simply put, the Chi Lins are necessary for the annual affliction of the Three Killing Thieves from the North this year. A pair of Pi Yaos are needed to appease the Grand Duke Jupiter which resides in the Northwest this year of the Fire Dog 2006. The Five Element Pagoda is to absorb negative chi, work as a metal cure for negative stars, and maintain the harmony of the five elements.
Feng Shui Enhancements
Part of the beauty of Feng Shui is its allowance of you to freely pursue your objectives through various means, and creativity is usually rewarded. For those who wish to attain more wealth, the Emperor Arowana is the perfect solution of achieving a freeflow of wealth. The All Protectors is meant for protection against various forms of harm, loss, and tragedy against you. The Battle Ready Kuan Kung is primarily used for protection, but is also an extremely potent wealth enhancer.
