Bring simple feng shui into your life
Feng shui is an ancient Chinese science aimed at encouraging energy flow and balance within a given space.
Having lived in Hong Kong for two years, my lovely wife, Helen, tells me that it is pronounced fung shoi, so let’s go with that.
There are all sorts of rules about how your house, for instance, should be placed in relation to its surroundings (particularly roads), which rooms should be used for what purpose (e.g. central, NE, SE, NE and SW), the layout of your furnishings and the materials that they are made of. Sure, you can engage a specialist practitioner to guide you along the right path, but my own approach to these things is to understand the principles and then just bear them in mind when I am planning a related something.
Those of you who have met with me at our offices in Midrand, will recall that the room in which we held our discussions had a relaxed, balanced and pleasing feel. One client, who knew of feng shui, insisted on taking a photograph. And yet it is a simple room. Nothing pretentious, Noting contrived, just good feng shui.
Read about it, learn from it, and enjoy that aaah feeling when you move about your home.
