Feng shui is a traditional Chinese art that aims to harmonize people with their surroundings. Feng means wind, and Shui means water – two of the five elements thought to make up the universe.
Through Feng shui, a person aims to balance these two elements to promote good health, wealth, and happiness. Feng shui practitioners believe small changes in how a space is arranged can encourage positive energy to flow and bring about lasting change.
While Feng shui is often associated with interior design, it can also be applied to architecture, urban planning, and landscape design. In recent years, Feng shui has gained popularity outside of China, with people worldwide incorporating its principles into their homes and workplaces.
The History of Feng Shui
Feng Shui dates back to 6,000 years ago and is based on the philosophy of Yin and Yang. Yin is the feminine energy, while Yang is the masculine energy. Feng Shui aims to achieve a harmonious balance between these two energies as well.
The basic principles of Feng shui were first set out in the I Ching, an ancient Chinese philosophy book.
Feng shui was traditionally used to help people choose the best location for their homes and graves. It was also used to design cities and palaces. Feng shui, in recent times, is increasingly applied in designing office buildings, factories, and other commercial structures.
How Feng Shui Works
When it comes to Feng Shui, there are numerous schools of thought. However, the main principle is that your surroundings directly impact your mood and well-being.
For instance, if your home is disorganized and cluttered, this will harm your energy levels. On the other hand, if your home is peaceful and serene, this will promote positive energy flow.
Pay attention to the placement of objects in your space if you want to achieve good Feng Shui. For instance, mirrors should be positioned in key areas to reflect good energy.
In addition, plants are believed to promote good energy flow and should be placed throughout the home or office.
Interpretation of Dreams Using Feng Shui
Our subconscious mind can be seen through our dreams. They can be interpreted in many ways, but did you know that you can also analyze your dreams using the principles of Feng shui?
With the help of energy (chi), the ancient Chinese art of Feng shui helps people find harmony and balance.
Here’s how to interpret your dreams using Feng shui:
1. Pay Attention to the Colors in Your Dream
Colors are essential in Feng shui because each has a distinct energy. Red, for instance, is a fiery color that denotes passion, strength, and bravery. On the other hand, blue is related to water energy and stands for wisdom, truth, and tranquility.
By paying attention to the colors in your Dream, you can gain insights into the type of energy in your subconscious mind.
2. Notice The Direction in Which Things are Moving
Each direction has a different element according to Feng shui. As an illustration, the North is linked to Water, while the South is linked to Fire. East is associated with Wood, while West is associated with Metal.
By noticing the direction in which things are moving in your Dream, you can gain insights into the type of energy that is at work in your life.
3. Focus On The Shapes That Are Present
Shapes also have their unique energies in Feng shui. For example, circles represent unity and harmony, while squares represent stability and foundations. Triangles represent change and growth, while rectangles represent balance and order.
By paying attention to the shapes present in your Dream, you can gain insights into what area of your life may need more attention or focus.
Dreams and Mythologies have always enticed mankind; even though some people think of dreams as a way for our subconscious to process information and sort through emotions, Feng shui experts believe that dreams can be interpreted to improve our lives.
You can start to discern which aspects of your life require attention by examining the details of your Dream, including where it took place in your house. With a bit of practice, you’ll be on your way to creating the best possible life for yourself by understanding the messages in your dreams.
