What Is Feng Shui?
According to Feng Shui philosophy, the major influence on the daily life of mankind is Qi.
In Feng Shui, the flow of Qi represents all kinds of energy, being responsible for the retention or dissipation of anything, whether material and immaterial, which affects the health, wealth, fortune and intelligence of human beings.
The aim of Feng Shui is to bring harmony between the built and natural environment so as to manipulate Qi appropriately for the well-being of mankind.
Qi is everywhere, and it is the origin of the whole universe which itself is constituted by vital Qi energy. Qi is also the secret to personal well-being and socio-political order.
It is akin to the “Force” described in the Star Wars movies.
The Force awakens in Rey
While you can’t manipulate Qi like Luke Skywalker or Rey, its effects can be observed in the different disciplines studied by the ancient Chinese.
These health sciences such as acupuncture and medicine, as well as martial arts, meteorological prediction, Feng Shui, and other aspects, are part of traditional Chinese culture.
Feng Shui involves the careful observation and analysis of the built environment so as to achieve equilibrium between nature, buildings and people.
According to Feng Shui, man and landscape are linked together in a system of “immanent order.” Nature consists of balanced forces, reacts to any interference imposed on it, and this reaction immediately resounds in man.
No place on Earth can have a good Feng Shui forever. The universe is dynamic and everything keeps changing. A place with good Feng Shui can only be good for a certain period of time when the Qi flow is favorable.
After that period, when the Qi flow changes, the place will no longer be auspicious.
Therefore, the site of a building must be selected to absorb good Qi in different periods, preferably for at least two sequential periods, that is 40 years in total.
Flying Stars Methodology
According to Feng Shui Masters using the Flying Stars method, the Facing and Sitting direction is the most important to be determined.
The Facing is defined as the point where the Qi enters the house. Essentially this is the starting point when we begin the Feng Shui audit.
The Sitting on the other hand is the direct opposite of the Facing.
From a Feng Shui perspective, the most important locations which have the greatest effect on us are the main door of the house, the bedroom, the study room, the office and rooms where daily activities are conducted.
Determining the Good Qi and Bad Qi
With a Feng Shui audit, we are able to determine the facing direction and plot out your flying star chart.

This then allows us to figure out where the good Qi is being blocked and where the bad Qi is flowing.
By doing certain adjustments, this allows us to help regain equilibrium and harmony of Qi in the house – indirectly helping to improve the lives of occupants in the house.
This is the main goal of Feng Shui – to use this ancient wisdom for the well-being of mankind – so as to live in harmony with his/her environment.
