Feng Shui Property Design

By S.BS. Surendran

Ever walked into a house that felt unlike a home? Ever reminisced about the best year of your life, and wondered why everything came together for you and now you find things falling apart. From the feng shui perspective it could be due to Time Period based Feng Shui afflictions.

Simply put, Feng Shui is about creating a harmonious environment. It’s the ancient Chinese Science and Art of placement, intended to improve our health, harmony, longevity, career and wealth.

Feng Shui is a centuries-old Chinese art that uses placement of objects to enhance the energy flow within an environment.  Feng Shui is a very popular method in determining the arrangement of a home. In other words  it is a design genre all on its own. But this design element is done not only for the visual aesthetics that it can impart to your home but to also activate many benefits, especially the energy it can draw into  your home.

There are many different schools, methods and formulas Feng Shui Masters adapt in designing a building and deciding on the various good and bad sectors in a property on the basis of calculations and formulas . Activating good sectors and countering ill effects of bad sectors is the primary focus of a Feng Shui consultant while analyzing a  property.

Feng Shui is not a one-size-fits-all science, hence each property requires a closer look and the right method and technique needs to be adapted which would suit the particular situation more aptly.

Implementing Feng Shui principles in your building can set the stage for the good things in life. Hence following some of the points listed below would help:
• Look for problem areas in your building like:
- A Toilet adjoining a kitchen (for hygienic and aesthetic reasons) is a taboo.
- A kitchen at the entrance or in the centre of the building , poorly designed  brings in ill health and sickness and the Fire energy in the wrong sector curbs career growth and prosperity.
- Stairway directly opposite the main entrance or before a bedroom, and stairs that are sweeping, circular or with open gaps between the steps are bad as these deplete the Chi energy.
- Sharp corners and heavy over head beams cutting into the bed or work desk creates disharmony.

• Identify good sectors  in your home:
- Square or rectangular rooms, with flat ceilings and sufficient natural light and ventilation draw in good energy, ventilation and freshness. This supports the occupants and strengthens their energy in turn  and the dimensions of the rooms enable proper planning of the furniture and furnishings.
- Furniture of room-appropriate size and design is good as it will allow easy movement and the sight of anyone entering through the main door. It also ensures proper circulation and ensures unhindered energy.
- Flowers and fruit trees attract birds and butterflies , it  promote peace and abundance, hence cultivate your garden and keep the building clutter free.
Feng Shui is all about creating happiness and harmonious space, hence ensure that the Feng Shui remedies are  unobtrusive and natural and in sync with your home.
