FENG SHUI

Some frequently asked questions about Feng Shui>>

1.       Introduction

    What is Feng Shui?

            Feng Shui means “wind & water” and is the art of living in harmony with the earth.  When we live in harmony with all things, our lives progress more smoothly and we find easier to achieve our goals. 

            There are three types of lucks, called ”Trinity of Luck”

i.        Heaven Luck     – One is born with this luck.  The influence of starts & planets on our destiny or the retribution or reward one receives for the deeds of past life.  This type of luck is difficult to change.

 

ii.      Mankind Luck   – This is the luck we draw, by really working hard with devotion and dedication i.e. 'Karma’.

 

iii.    Earth luck           – This is the luck that we draw from the places we live and work in.  This part of the luck may be changed with the use of ‘Feng Shui’.

4.       The Elements.

 

            All energy of the universe remains in balance.  There are fine basic elements, water, wood, fire, earth and metal.  They form Continuous Cycle. Understanding these will enhance the potency of Feng-Shui.

 

(I)                          The cycle of Generation:

 

 


 

·                    Wood nourishes fire,

·                    Fire burns to ashes, thus transforming to earth,

·                    Earth hardens to form metal

·                    Pure metal become water and

·                    Water nourishes wood.

 

Thus, the creative cycle is completed.

 

   (II)                      The cycle of destruction:

 

 

P             Wood destroys Earth,

P             Earth soaks Water,

P             Water quenches Fire,

P             Fire destroys Metal and

P             Metal cuts the Wood.
