Feng Shui in Interior Design
Feng Shui is literally defined as wind and water, as “Feng” means wind and “Shui” means water. These elements are associated with good health and fortune, and using Feng Shui techniques in your home will improve the flow of this energy. Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese practice, and there are basic specific rules to be followed to make it work. Chinese people defined “chi” as an invisible that binds life together. Also, it is impossible for strong chi to exist in the home if there is clutter and dirt.
When you use Feng Shui techniques, the first order should be to clear away all dust, dirt and clutter in the home that will get in the way of positive and healthy energy; on a furniture placement these orders are extremely important. Perhaps the most important area of the house to consider is the bedroom for it is here where you rest and recharge. The energy that flows in this space need to be tranquil and harmonious.
If you plan to use the techniques of Feng Shui in your home familiarized yourself with the Bagua map. It is a eight sided energy map tool used to place the floor plan of your home starting from the front door, as this point of entrance is consider to be the “mouth of Chi” where all energy enters into the home. Fen Shui dictates that the Bagua map should be used with a birds-eye view and drawn over the floor plan of the home. Once it is in place, you can see which areas of your life need to be improved, and focus on those areas specifically.
The techniques of Feng Shui can be a great tool to bring prosperity, happiness, love and harmony into your life.
