One of the most important facts we experience in life that means the world to us has to do with energy being at the root of all things that change—always in motion. Whether you are listening to a conversation or reading a book, energy is in motion. When energy moves, change is inevitable. Sometimes, we feel some things never change and we do not understand how that can be if energy is all around us always moving, and always changing. Today, I want to clarify some basics of Feng Shui and we perceive the flow of energy as energy relates to different areas of life.

If you have ever taken a biology class, you know that some cells are specifically designed for certain organs or functions in the body. Even though energy is always in motion, physics tells us that energy has some basic principles of function. In other words, raw energy is what it is but we would not be here today if there were not some basic principles of how energy works in our natural (physical) world. Energy can take different forms and function based on those different forms. Energy flows when there is change because energy takes different paths and is always moving in, out, and around in our environment.

We know that we cannot see energy, but we see the results of that movement of energy all around us, such as the sun shining, change in the seasons, physical trees, flowers; even climate. We are not here because of some random motion in the environment (I know this seems like an opening for philosophical debate but just for a moment keep an open mind). Certain conditions in the environment and principles of cellular biology line up and function in specific ways in order for us to be here. In other words, we came about due to laws of energy (change and function) and processes that allowed us to develop, grow, and become who we are; even today.

When we are focusing on applying Feng Shui to improve some area of our life, for example, energy is in motion and we know energy exists in some area of our space that relates to a specific area of our life. How we discern where that energy exists is due to the work thousands of years ago from watching the change of energy and the results of that change. In other words, we improve the entry way of our space in order to attract free flowing energy known as Qi. When we think about Qi, we are basically considering an energy that is uplifting and invigorating. The energy of Qi always has the same function of uplifting us changing things to match up to its vibration which is a higher frequency of productive flow…

When we think about Qi, we are basically considering an energy that is uplifting and invigorating. The energy of Qi always has the same function of uplifting us changing things to match up to its vibration which is a higher frequency of productive flow.

Qi follows certain principles of flow in our environment. For example, you may be familiar with the idea of rushing Qi and what this means is that the environment exists in a certain configuration drawing in existing Qi in the environment where sometimes the environment conditions the flow of a lot of Qi all at once (not necessarily a good thing even though Qi is good for us). If you have ever seen how the rain can comes down in a specific area and the water begins to follow a certain path, you know the excess water has found a certain path of flow and follows it so much so that it can become very strong and not necessarily a good thing at that moment because rushing water can destroy things in the path the water is flowing in order to get where that path takes.

One of the main conversation pieces and nearly all Feng Shui principles center around are five elements of water, earth, metal, wood, and fire. Qi is not water, per sey, yet a product of the flow or existence of water and flow or movement of wind (Feng Shui) that influences the product of one or all of the elements pertinent to the study of Feng Shui. Feng Shui is in essence the deliberate act of influencing the flow of Qi to improve one or all of the main elements specific to the practice of Feng Shui so that element produces the energy (characteristic) that element provides in our environment. Each element important in the study of Feng Shui is not thought as the actual element as much as the energy or characteristic of that element (energy). So, we may improve a specific area of our space with the energy of a certain element in order to maximize on that energy of the element in that space and the element of that space should be so that Qi provides the nutriment for that element (energy) to function properly and assist in that particular area of our life.

For whatever reason an area of our space’s element gets out of whack (annual flying stars, clutter, stagnant Qi), we make changes in that space so that when Qi does enter that space that element accepts the full nourishment of that Qi and provides the necessary energy needed for that area of life. So, you may hear someone say that the wealth corner is thought as the Earth element. And when we place an earthen element in that space we are doing so to help that element be at the fullest of functioning of the Earth element so that when that incoming Qi meets up with that space that element receives that nourishment and in turn provides the natural energy of earth related to wealth. Thus, your wealth energy of your space is improved and helps motivate, draw in, or spawn wealth giving properties.

If you can imagine the flow of energy, and how each spaces energy has certain qualities of function and know that when we condition our space whether through placing an element or clearing out clutter we are essentially improving the natural element of that space and directing the quality of Qi to help nourish that natural element in that space. According to Feng Shui, only five elements function together in our space that provide us with everything we need to live a full happy healthy life. It is not so much the element that we are focusing on but the quality of the energy that represents that element and the flow and nourishment of that element through Qi.
