Feng Shui Guides (Part 1) - Building by Feng Shui Rules
There is a lot of truth in every life wisdom and proverb. The proverb & bdquo; take root & ldquo; or being rooted with a location & ldquo; have a much deeper meaning than you think. Every place one is in has a direct influence on the positive or negative state of being. Not only the location of the property on which a house is to be built, will shape the later condition of the residents. The shape of the building plot also plays an important role. Therefore, it is ideal if a plot is square or rectangular. This will clear all areas of the so-called & quot; Bagua & ldquo;
The Chinese bagua represents the eight cardinal directions and the distribution of energy for human living spaces. The five basic elements: water, fire, earth, metal and wood are used in the Bagua assigned to the cardinal directions. Each individual compass direction is assigned a 45 degree compass sector . This creates a grid consisting of eight different directional energies - the & quot; eight characters & quot; or trigrams. Each of the trigrams gets its own name. These describe the individual qualities of Ying and Yang in the individual areas of life. Only when all areas of life have the & # ; prosperity factor & ldquo; achieve, one can speak of a fulfilled life. The Eight Trigrams in Detail:
- Kun: Relationship Management, Partnership.
- Kan: Realization of Own Ideas, Career
- Chen: The "Family Corner" ./ li>
- Sun: Financial Protection, Wealth
- Chien: Accepting help and being there for others, friends
- Tui: Joy, creative life
- Ken: Cultivating Deep Insights, Knowledge
- Li: Appreciation, Glory
Bagua 's analysis of the Property easily feasible. During the analysis, note whether and where there are indentations or deviations from the ideal form in the course of the property. Not always, the property will ideally fit Bagua formula of Feng Shui. Useful tips will help you create a harmonious building area. As a rule of thumb : The house should be located centrally on the property if possible. In this case, it is surrounded by all areas of the bagua and there are no balance disturbances in the energy flow. As a builder, be sure to balance the ratio of built-up and undeveloped floor space. This point is difficult to realize nowadays because the building costs are high.
Unfavorable are land that lies on a slope. If a house is built on a hillside, the force (CHI) & nbsp; & gt; & gt; & gt; & nbsp; flows down the hill & ldquo ;. If you want to balance, high hedges and trees are the right step to get the energy. A high light source on the lower wall would also be helpful in this case.
One of the key features of Feng Shui's favorable location search is the so-called & # ; Light Room , a free, undeveloped landscape in front of the future house entrance. It can be a park or a meadow. Green and lush grass in front of the front door brings happiness to the residents.
The signs of a Feng Shui compliant property
Few people, successful business people or movie stars, for example, can build a home anywhere in the world. However, given certain basic requirements, anyone can find a place where a house can be built according to Feng Shui principles.
Look for a slightly sloping landscape, preferably a body of water. Slow-flowing streams are a good sign of Feng Shui. The situation is even better when the place is enclosed by the water. The cheap chi energy really wraps around the house that later came into being. Lands on small rivers have excellent Feng Shui properties. The water must always remain clean and must not be dirty. Standing, dirty water produces a "bad breath" that brings unhappiness and possible illnesses.
When planning, the orientation and the environment of the house are crucial. The back of the future house should be protected by a hill, a group of trees or a hill. These occurrences forms the so-called & quot; black turtle & ldquo ;. It later helps the inhabitants to get through difficult times. In the case that no such natural protection is present, can be helped afterwards with hindsight. Planting a row of trees behind the house would certainly be the most elegant solution. Therefore, you should not build a house on a ridge - the terrain behind the building must not fall off.
When selecting the property, the favorable signs are to be found in the plant world. Examine how the trees and plants look on neighboring properties, how they grow, whether they are healthy or sick. If the grass on the prospective plot is green and lush, then the place has good energy for house building. The vegetation thrives in the places where the good chi accumulates (energy), the equilibrium between yin and yang - thus between sun and shadow, wind and humidity - remains. In short : A fertile land means good feng shui. Dry, rocky soil, on the other hand, is not a good place to build your future home. If you are lucky enough to be able to choose a property, you should avoid certain locations and types of land. The following layouts have a weak Feng Shui:
- U-shaped floor plans;
- Round floor plans
- Floor plans in tube form;
- Triangular floor plans;
- and floor plans with irregular recesses.
Hill crests are among the places where according to the Feng Shui rules should not be built, they are considered unfavorable for building a house. With such houses, the water and energy would flow away from the house and thus be lost. On the other hand, if the country is completely unprotected, there is little protection against possible "enemies."
