Harmonizing Your Home: A Modern Approach to Feng Shui

Posted on July 16, 2023 by Derelle Ball

Feng Shui, translating to 'wind/water', refers to the idea that qi (unseen transformative energy that travels along magnetic pathways in and around the earth) is dispersed by wind and retained by water.   The Feng Shui ideal is to attract positive (sheng) qi via thoughtful design, magnetic orientation, supportive landform and careful placement of water and active elements (such as external doors).

For the contemporary homeowner seeking to benefit from the ancient wisdom of Feng Shui, it would be wise to integrate the study of Xuan Kong Fei Xing Pai (Time-Space Flying Stars School) Feng Shui and San He Landform & Water Methods analysis. Pairing this with an understanding and respect for sustainable development will allow us to live in harmony with our surroundings.

Placing your main entry and regularly used external doorways within a favourable water star location (according to the Xuan Kong Fei Xing Feng Shui natal chart of your home) will ensure productive energy is able to freely enter and circulate within your home.  If there is an active water feature strategically positioned in view of the door, qi connected with abundance opportunity has the potential to accumulate over the long term.

Your home should be designed for the climate and terrain it's built on. When planning your home, consider the land's natural contours, the elliptical path of the sun and surrounding natural resources. Ensure your home allows ample natural light, has good insulation and ventilation, is energy-efficient and supportive of its occupants. Your home, after all, should feel like a sanctuary, a place to rest and recharge.

Remember, we humans thrive in the presence of nature—it restores us and stimulates our creative functions. With Xuan Kong Feng Shui, we can address the unseen energy flow around us and help orient the occupants within a dwelling to benefit from positive, health-boosting qi. 

Mountain star energy is supported by raised landform in the external environment and tends to reside within solid walls and heavy solid furniture.  If you sleep with your bedhead resting against a beneficial mountain star qi that communicates favourably with your personal Ming Gua, then you will be plugging in your internal batteries each night while absorbing beneficial health and relationship energy.

In this tech-driven era, it's also crucial to address electromagnetic radiation (EMR) in our homes. EMR can travel through walls unless there's magnetic shielding in place. Awareness of such potential health hazards is an important step to ensuring the health and well-being of the household.

You should check what is located on the other side of the wall where your bedhead is positioned and avoid situations where you may be affected by an electrical meter box or transformer attached to a large electrical object on the other side of the wall and in line with your bedhead.

Also avoid having your bedhead placed against a wall adjoining a wet area where water pipes reside within the wall cavity. 

Did you know certain indoor plants can help purify the air of toxins found in common household cleaning agents? It's a small addition that can make a world of difference. Don't forget to also allow fresh air to circulate throughout your home regularly by opening windows and doors.

And finally, don't sweat about constant tidiness. Instead, focus on creating a welcoming, warm, and comfortable home.
