You probably have a basic concept of feng shui, which is the Chinese concept of orienting your home (or another building, monument, etc.) and the contents of your home in an auspicious way. In theory I know what the practice is, but having now met an actual specialist, it is much more complicated and involved than I actually knew.
After my showing, I Googled “feng shui” to write this blog and . . . wow! There is so much to know! I started reading a Wikipedia article on the matter and it was very detailed and included the various schools of feng shui and I could not even begin to narrow it down to a bite-sized blog. Then I found a much easier to understand article on thespruce.com, “Some Basic Principles of Feng Shui,” that boils it down quite succinctly. Read the article by clicking here.
The article gives you some good insight on the ancient practice, and I think that author Rodika Tchi summed it up nicely with this paragraph: “Feng shui is sometimes thought to be the art of placement—understanding how the placement of yourself and objects within a space affects your life in various areas of experience. It is a complex body of knowledge that teaches you how to balance and harmonize with the energies in any given space—be it a home, office, or garden. Its aim is to assure good fortune for the people inhabiting a space. Although regarded by some in the scientific community as a pseudo-science, feng shui has had an impact on the aesthetics of interior design and the architectural layout of living and working spaces both in its native eastern and, more recently, western cultures.”
