In the last article, I presented a real Feng Shui case about how a client of mine used color to enhance her house’s Wood energy. According to Feng Shui, all matter has its unique energy in terms of the Five Energies. It is very common to use color to adjust the balance of the Five Energies in Feng Shui practices.
Everyone’s life is influenced by three factors, namely, cosmic Qi field, earth’s Qi field and our bodies’ Qi field. The cosmic Qi field represents energy that changes in time, for example, 2012 is the year of Water. The earth’s Qi field refers to the Five Energies in our living environment, that is, Environment Feng Shui. Our bodies’ Qi field refers to the Five Energies in our bodies, it controls our destiny.
We all know that the living environment affects our health, for example, water pollution and noise have negative influences. However, there are a lot of negative factors that affect us that we don’t know about. By using Feng Shui analysis, we can find out these negative factors.
A couple of years ago, aclient called me for Feng Shui consultation. I asked him to e-mail me his birthday and year of birth and the same about his wife along with the information about their house. The birthdays were used to analyze their personal Feng Shui ( their bodies’ Qi fields ). After analyzing their birthdays, I found out that his wife’s personal Feng Shui is associated with very strong Wood energy.
When I came to their house, I measured their house by using a Feng Shui compass that divided the measured area into 24 directions (note 1). Reading from the compass, I collected some Feng Shui information about this house. In their living room, I noticed that almost 2/5 area was occupied by a lot of large potted plants, some of them were withered.
I called the client next day, and asked him if his wife had insomnia. His answer was yes. I suggested him to remove those large plants in their living room because they created excess Wood energy that had a negative impact on his wife’s health. This is a classic example of how the environment affects Feng Shui. From the point of view of traditional Chinese medicine, too much Wood energy in this case effect his wife’ sleeping.
From this case, we learnt that by applying Feng Shui analysis, we may find out some things that have negative impact on us but we can not see them in daily life. Also we learnt that if one energy overcomes others, it may have negative impact on us. Good Feng Shui is always the balance of the Five Energies in our lives.
Note (1) In Feng Shui terms, we call 24 directions as 24 mountains. Each mountain (direction) associated with a particular energy.
