In the West, feng shui (literally meaning “wind” and “water”) usually means doing things like arranging furniture or hanging mirrors for good fortune. But it is much more than that. A feng shui practitioner actually helps you to shape your fate.
In The Art & Science of Feng Shui, Author Henry B. Lin, a native of China, goes far beyond the usual simplistic interpretations of feng shui to reveal the inner history and secrets of this powerful system of magick-through-design.
You’ll learn the important principles of this science including the effects of Qi energy, wind, water, mountains, and direction may have on a building. You’ll also learn about the consequences of having different land sites for the same building.
Advice is given for businesses as well as homes. There should be no window or door behind the seat of the CEO. There should be a potted plant on his or her desk, too. The financial departments of a company should be located on the right side of the building but the marketing and personnel departments should be located on the left. Also covered is the role that color plays in feng shui. Green and black are good colors for furniture businesses, while red and pink are good for restaurants or bakerys. The reasons for this are explained in the book.
Even the importance of burial places and direction is considered. And while it may not have an effect on the one making use of the burial site, if the person is buried the wrong way it could have terrible consequences for generations to come.
Even astrology has an effect on feng shui. The birthday of an owner may affect the energy flow in a home, thereby requiring a different set-up than a home owned by a person born on a different date.
All of this and more is revealed in this book. To really learn feng shui in depth, this is the book you need.
