is Feng Shui?
What if you could bring into
your home or business a power that would enhance your health,
happiness, love relationships, career and money flow, along
with other areas of your life? Now, what if I told you that
this unlimited power is everywhere, and all you have to do
is "invite" it in? You would probably expect the
next line to be, "for more information on this 'new discovery',
just call 1-800-GOTCHA, where our helpful operators are standing
by!" (Have you ever wondered if these operators are allowed
this is not a 'new discovery'. The Chinese have been practicing
it for thousands of years. It is called Feng Shui (pronounced
Fung Shway), which translated means "wind and water."

the Chinese call Ch'i (pronounced Chee) into your home or
business, and cause it to circulate in every room, enhancing
all of the "life areas" of your environment, thus
improving your life, health and destiny.
explanation of Ch'i, is that it is believed to be the underlying
life force of everything in the universe. This life force,
when it merges into our physical world, becomes the vital,
bio-electric, life-giving force of the body. The closest translation
of Ch'i is "vital breath".
are many ways to circulate Ch'i throughout your environment,
depending on the layout and/or decor of your home or business.
on the front cover of my book is the eight sided Ba-Gua, a
"map" to help determine where the "life areas"
are in any room and/or in any structure. You can also see these "life areas" by going to the Interactive Ba-Gua section of my website. "Life areas"
are the physical locations of sections of a room or structure
which affect different areas of your life. The nine "life

are three major schools of Feng Shui: Form School, Compass
School, and Tibetan Buddhist Black Hat or Black Sect School.
Some of the schools have a slightly different Ba-Gua that
is used to determine where the different "life areas"
are. I mention this because I have met many people who have
bought a book based on Compass School concepts and
then bought a book based on Tibetan Black Hat concepts which totally confused them as to just where the "life
areas" are located. The best thing to do until you have
made a thorough study of Feng Shui is to find which school
feels best to you and stay with that school.
and science of Feng Shui can be compared with the healing
science of acupuncture, and the martial art system of T'ai
Chi, as all three have Taoism (pronounced dow-ism) as their
philosophical basis. An acupuncturist heals you by utilizing
methods to cause the Ch'i flow (vital life force) in your
body to go back into balance. T'ai Chi, which translated means
"supreme ultimate", utilizes movement and breathing
to balance and expand Ch'i flow in your body. A Feng Shui
consultant heals your environment by utilizing methods to
cause the Ch'i to flow in, then balance, channel and expand
it to all of the "life areas", especially any "life
area" where you feel lack or limitation in your life.
