feng shui

We are definitely not Chinese, but we believe in feng shui.. Feng Shui however is not only for Chinese. It transcends cultural, economic, political as well as racial barriers. According to E. Moran, the term “feng shui” denotes the art and science of living in harmony with nature’s forces. As long as a person believe in God and supreme forces; has an open mind; believe that the world and its people are interconnected; believe that harmony and balance are essential to our well-being; and anyone who believe in a sense of fate and destiny; can be a practitioner or a believer of feng shui like us..

Actually, we’re kind of late to understand its advantages. I just started to read about it when our home was already built. According to some who has an extensive knowledge on feng shui, there are some areas in our home that needs to be modified. But there’s no way we would allow anyone destroy any part of our home.. That’s definitely a “NO!” Our home is a home that hard work built.. It is not leased nor mortgaged; we actually work so hard and save to build that. Thanks, solution is possible without turning our home up-side-down..

When I said our home, I am referring to our home in Baras. We are glad because it sits in the middle of a square lot which denotes stability and balance. Even the shape of our home is square which said to make qi able to flow freely and nourishes its occupants.. The problem lies in the position of doors in some of the rooms and pathways. But I was assured by other experts that it can be remedied if I put some of the following lucky charms in some locations in our home..

The word crystal comes from the Greek word krystallos, meaning "frozen light". Crystals have been used over the centuries for a myriad of purposes - from healing to protection to decoration.

Walking tall with trunk upraised in a traditional Feng Shui good fortune gesture, this decorative elephant statue makes a dramatic decor statement indoors or a fine addition to your Zen garden outdoors!

The symbol of power, good fortune, and wisdom. Other decors such as Chinese Lantern which signifies Peace, Love, Harmony, Joy Characters and Chimes..

Hong Tze Chinese Style Galloping Horses Sculpture made of resin and many more..

Never place a mirror where it directly reflects the front door, it serves as an gesture for the non-welcome to the house or the room.
