Op het strand trek ik mijn schoenen uit. Nat en koel is de sensatie onder mijn voeten en tussen mijn tenen. Een honderdtal mensen heeft hetzelfde idee en houdt de schoenen aan.
The trip to China in October 2012 with Master Howard Choy and Gyda Anders as guides and in company of other Feng Shui masters & consultants from all over the world has been a worthwhile experience. In two weeks time we have explored the China of old, visiting places amongst others that don’t get mentioned in the average travel books.
The influence of mountains on settlements of humans is well known in China. The embrace, size and shape are to be reckoned with. Its power is better put to good use, requiring the knowledge of a Feng Shui master to find a suitable block of land. In the old days Feng Shui masters would travel the country extensively in search of the best place to construct a palace, temple or city and its remnants can still be found today as they have survived the test of time.
Water is one of the most precious commodities for humans and without healthy clean water one cannot survive. The presence of water where Qi is collected can bring prosperity. Oceans, rivers, lakes, canals, ponds and pools all have a bigger or smaller impact. Using water beneficially requires knowledge of where to position an object in relation to water or where to put water in relation to the object. A Feng Shui consultant can be of assistance in locating the right spot.
The colour of China’s flag is red. Red communism. It’s also a symbol for good luck. My hair is red. In Chinese weddings red is used to chase away bad luck and to bring happiness and joy to the couple. It represents the fire element, the South direction, the phoenix, it’s full yang, expansive and associated with summer. In Feng Shui it’s an old custom to pay for a Feng Shui audit by putting an amount, the customer thinks the consult has been worth, into the little red envelope.
Royal furniture demonstrates the wealth of the emperor. Plain interiors show country living. Luxurious lush decorations indicate today’s rich. The basics: bed, table, chair remain the same for all. Getting by with what one has and dreaming about materialistic upgrades is on many a mind. Happiness is defined by cherishing what one has, for wanting more can leave one dissatisfied. Freedom comes from within.

Kids are addicted to their phone, playing with autumn leaves or getting cuddled by daddy and in awe of aliens.

The use of Feng Shui knowledge in designing buildings is common practise in Asia. Originating in China the Feng Shui philosophy can be traced back thousands of years. Royal palaces, temples and villages have based the construction of the complexes on Feng Shui principles taking into account ideal orientation, position and size of Ming Tang and highlighting the importance of host buildings over guests. Historic (style) objects exist next to their modern counterpart.
