what is Feng Shui?
Feng Shui in Chinese means Water and Wind.
A Chinese tradition dating back more than 3000 years, once at the service of emperors and powerful …
The evolution of Feng Shui is constant until our days and the first writings date back 400 years. This know-how is put at the service of successive Emperors who question it to establish a city or build a palace. The first remarkable elements were based on the principles of the four “Celestial Animals” and the cardinal orientations
Between 960 and 1277, we witness the unification of geomantic texts. Feng Shui is becoming a recognized discipline and popular legitimacy takes precedence over political legitimacy.
In 1929, Feng Shui was banned in China under Mao Tse Tong.
Feng Shui masters go to practice and transmit to Singapore, Malaysia or Hong Kong… It is funny to note that at the same time, Mao Tse Tong uses Feng Shui for his personal and political use.
In the 90s, the Anglo-Saxons discovered this art and many Western adaptations were born and developed in the United States, Canada and Great Britain. The rest of Europe became interested in Feng Shui in the 2000s.
In its traditional version, Feng Shui is not a decorative method to promote well-being. It is a real complex and subtle know-how, based on the fundamentals of Chinese cosmology: Balance between Yin and Yang, harmony between the 5 elements, wood, fire, earth, metal and water.
Feng Shui is the art of placing the house in its landscape, the man in his house and his house in time.
It is about identifying the bad Qi, the one that hurts and protecting oneself from it. Identifying and channeling the right Qi, the one that preserves health, gives strength, facilitates clear thinking and effective action. Capturing this good Qi opens the way for professional and financial, emotional and relational success.
A fine observation of landscapes, dwellings, and their link with their inhabitants and the passage of time… An extraordinary toolbox and formulas with magical names… “What works is true” say the Chinese. Everything is linked, everything must be granted.
So these are the objectives of Feng Shui unchanged.
Feng Shui teaches an ancestral technique for achieving physical, moral and intellectual fullness by acting on the judicious development of our living environment.

The 3 Feng Shui principles
Its practice dates back more than 3 millennia in China. Feng Shui has been practiced in China since the TANG dynasty. They used it to find the best places to build villages and houses. They had noticed how much people’s lives were enriched when they lived in a place where life energy, in other words Qi, flowed harmoniously. Thus, the place in which we live is characterized by a particular circulation of energy and when we are in harmony with it, we enjoy its benefits.
This discipline is closely linked to the forces of nature. It is based on the existence of a harmonious energy flow (Qi) as well as on the notions of Yin and Yang, the 5 elements and the distribution of energy according to the theory of Pa Kua.
The 3 Feng Shui principles:
• Everything is alive, everything around us (objects, plants, buildings, furniture) is endowed with Qi, in other words energy.
• Everything is connected to everything, Qi connects us to everything around us, and therefore everything is of importance in the practice of Feng Shui.
• Everything is changing, everything is in constant motion, the changes that occur in our environment, reflect the changes that occur in our lives.
Feng Shui conceives of our places of life as being very living entities, with which we are linked.
As a way of life, Feng Shui can be considered as the science that allows to select and organize a living environment in which the 5 elements and the energies of Yin and Yang are in fully harmonious balance and, by way of consequently, provide a pleasant existence to all who reside in this environment.
This technique corrects disharmony in the environment and gives everyone the opportunity to improve their own living and working space, so as to strengthen this vital harmony and balance.
Feng Shui has become an essential part of everyday life in China and Japan. It is currently more and more accepted and recognized in many Western countries.
The Feng Shui calendar
The Feng Shui calendar is fixed, as is the Georgian (or solar) calendar that we use in our daily life. However, unlike the Georgian calendar whose New Year is January 1, Feng Shui New Year always begins on February 4 of each year. Likewise, each Feng Shui month has predefined dates that never change.
For its part, the Feng Shui calendar is a lunisolar calendar, based on lunar cycles converted into Gregorian dates. This is why the date of the Chinese New Year is never the same and changes every year, following the monthly cycles of the moon.
Time is perceived by the Chinese to be cyclical. The round of days and seasons, the day that always comes after night: Chinese time is made up of cycles that are repeated over the years. Throughout this eternal renewal, Chinese sages have noted cycles of growth, stagnation and decline which correspond to the alternations of Yin and Yang. Nothing is permanent, everything is immanence. The study of these cycles made it possible to determine a calendar of days with the activities recommended or prohibited.
This calendar of good dates indicates the days when it is beneficial to start renovations in the house, to build, to plant trees in your garden, and / or to make the changes of Classic Feng Shui that were recommended during a Consultation.
You might as well choose a good day all the time to start the work. We can even choose these days for important things, because if the day is good for renovating and stirring up energies in the house, it also indicates that it is an excellent day on which to rely on to carry out our projects.
Since the dawn of time, people of all civilizations have sought to understand the cycles of time in order to be able to predict and control their destiny.
These special agendas dealing with favorable and unfavorable dates in the current year calendar, traditionally used in China for war tactics, are now more accessible, but still unrecognized in our Western societies.
The essential principle of Chinese metaphysics consists of knowing how to act in the right way, in the right place and above all at the right time to harmoniously reconcile the three chances to promote prosperity and success:
• Chance du Ciel (Tien Chai)
• Luck of the Earth (Ti Chai)
• Man’s Luck (Ren Chai)
This Chinese calendar or Feng Shui calendar provides information on the potentialities of the moment. Each day is specified if the energies are of a harmonious, neutral or destructive nature. This is how it is noted whether the day is auspicious or not.
