Classic Feng Shui 2019

Feng shui is an ancient Chinese practice that seeks to bring balance, harmony, and energy into homes and workplaces. Feng shui is widely used for decorating and arranging any space in order to maximize its potential and bring good luck, health, and prosperity. The classic Feng Shui practice has two main components: the understanding of energy flow and the placement of items to attract and maximize it.

What is Classic Feng Shui?

Classic Feng Shui is based on the principles of the Five Elements (Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, and Metal) and the Yin-Yang duality. It takes into account the geography, the environment and the individual preferences of the people living in the space. The goal is to use these elements to bring positive energy or qi (pronounced “chee”) into the home or office, while avoiding any negative energy.[1]

Understanding the Five Elements

The Five Elements in Classic Feng Shui are based on the natural balance of the universe and each element has a specific purpose. Working with these elements involves understanding how they interact and how they can be used to create an energy balance in a home or office space. This includes:

  • Water: Prevention of stagnant energy
  • Wood: Growth and expansion
  • Fire: Intuition and strength
  • Earth: Grounding and stability
  • Metal: Purification and transformation

Placement of Items

Once the Five Elements and the principles of Yin-Yang duality have been understood, they can be used to bring balance and harmony into the home or office. To do this, it is important to take into account the individual preferences and needs of the people using the space, as well as the flow of energy around it.

For example, placement of items can be adjusted according to the colors associated with the Five Elements. Reds and yellows represent fire, blues and whites represent water, browns and greens represent earth, and greys and whites represent metal.
