FengShui is the ancient Chinese art
of balancing wind and water. ?Feng? stands for ?Wind element? and ?Shui?
stands for the ?Water element?. So Feng Shui means a conglomeration of
wind and water elements Actually Feng Shui was taken from India by the
Chinese several centuries ago. They put some of their local ideas to suit
their own culture and environment into it. FengShui has several forms
and an expert can determine which form suits whom,when and where. According
to Feng Shui, a house should have the following five elements for FengShui
to be effective. They are a laughing Buddha, an oil lamp or diya,a bowl
of water with flowers in it, a three-legged frog (not real!) and a pair
of mandarin ducks (unreal).
To remove the negativity from the
house, the above items should be washed with salt water daily. The oil
lamps should be lit up daily in the evening.Wind chimes and bells should
be used extensively to ward off any negative energy prevailing in the
house. Also the Feng Shui in a house should be changed form time to time
as the seasons change. The changes should be made every three months.
Infact, Feng Shui is a philosophy-
a contemplation of the ancient Chinese scholars who have explained how
natural forces impact personal life and fortune of an individual. Chinese
Lunar Dates, Zodiac signs, Annual zodiac signs, hexagram and I -Ching
are the leading attributes of Feng Shui. Origin of Feng Shui dates back
to 5000 years. A teacher adept in Feng Shui principles is called ?Hsien
Sheng?. The Feng Shui expert guides not only about the exterior and the
interior of the house but also takes into account the atmosphere and the
environs prevailing around the house.
