Yesterday, my Feng Shui master and I were discussing Ch’i-what it is and what it is not. People call it energy, but I think that is too broad and doesn’t really explain it. Some call it dust, and maybe that’s helpful for people to see why it’s so elusive and uncooperative.
I think we settled on life’s breath, for lack of a better description.
He says he can feel it-I said I know when it’s not there. Feng Shui is based on position or place, and the idea is to attract Ch’i, making sure it travels throughout your space, not too quickly, and not stopping.
If it’s lacking, or doesn’t reach your whole space, that’s a problem. If it gets stagnant, that’s also a problem.
Almost every space I’ve ever visited has areas where I do not feel the Ch’i, including Floyd, our current house.
There are, however, some absolutes when choosing a home or apartment.
• Do not choose a home where it is always windy-the Ch’i can never settle-it just blows away (like dust in the wind)
• Do not select a place at the end of a T juncture. Cars and headlights coming right at you(they call these tiger’s eyes, which is very unsettling to find coming toward you.
• Do not select a place where you look out on a cemetery. This seems obvious but cemeteries attract Ch’i too, so you may be in competition for it with your neighbors.
Bottom line; If you do not feel comfortable in a home, there’s probably an issue with the Ch’i.
