Feng Shui for Homes and Businesses

Feng Shui is available to all types of properties: Primary or Secondary Home, Single-Family, Condominium, Rental Apartments, Investments, and Business Offices.

mtnIn Classical Feng Shui, structures are often viewed as “containers of Qi.” The energy outside (external environment) as well as inside (internal forms) of a building can greatly influence the wellbeing of the residents. That’s why the authentic application of Feng Shui has nothing to do with odd décor or “new age” gimmicks. On the contrary, the power of Feng Shui lies in the subtlety of the abstract forces of the internal and external environment.

When properly performed, Feng Shui can bring you balance, harmony, and prosperity. It eliminates all the guesswork of building and arranging your living space.

Figure 01_Chinese Characters for Feng ShuiWhat is Feng Shui?

Feng Shui (pronounced “fung-shway”) is a 6000-year-old wisdom from ancient China. The name literally translates to mean wind-water, and it is the study of Qi (energy) flow in the living environment and harnessing positive and benevolent energies to support and influence life. Although popularly misunderstood, traditional Feng Shui is anything but mythical or esoteric; rather, it is a discipline similar to Traditional Chinese Medicine that is derived from a set of knowledge including the theory of Yin and Yang, the principles of the Chinese Five Elements, and the concept of Qi (energy) — these are the very foundation of the science of Chinese Metaphysics.

What is the difference between Classical and Western Feng Shui?

Classical Feng Shui should not be confused with Western Feng Shui. Western Feng Shui is associated primarily with the application using the “Bagua Map” method for locating the “love corner” or the “wealth corner” of a home. The traditional approach does not use this simplified methodology; instead, it relies on the use of a Luo Pan (Feng Shui Compass) to understand the natal chart and directional energies of the home, systematically working from the outside-in. Classical Feng Shui essentially boils down to the study of four important factors: (i) the external environment, (ii) the internal property, (iii) the influence of time, and (iv) the people living inside the home. These factors provide for a more comprehensive, extensive, and accurate Feng Shui evaluation.

Also, unlike its western counterpart, Classical Feng Shui does not place an emphasis on obvious interior designs (i.e., painting your door red) or object placement (i.e., hanging crystals). This sophisticated system relies on the power of subtlety. Furthermore, Classical Feng Shui is a “macro” practice that first focuses on the external environment such as the natural landforms surrounding the property. Only then does the analysis move “inward” to focus on the internal floor plan using formulas and other models of calculations. Classical Feng Shui leaves no guesswork and can often provide very precise and in depth assessment that is tailored specifically to the individuals occupying the home.
