| “Feng Shui” is an oriental art that deals with the harmonization of ether energy flows. In any place, might it be the human body or the house, the ether or vital energy, which is the vehicle of Life, must always be free to flow, exactly as the air (feng) and the water (shui) do. When the flow is right, the place is alive. Through the commitment to very simple rules, one is able to purify one’s environment and to organize one’s life in harmony according to the very beneficial presence of ether energy.
The Ki must be encouraged to flow into your house according to a vibrational pattern. If the Ki was left by its own, he would tend to flow through any place quickly and straight away, without releasing its living energies. Three aligned doors in a row create the worst configuration, where the main entrance and the backyard door are directly facing one another. If your house is built this way, you may just leave the intermediate door closed as much as possible, or dissimulate the backyard door behind a screen of plants or fabrics or even attach a crystal or a chime close to the ceiling so that the Ki may come upwards instead of flowing through. A house or a flat has always four positive and four negative areas.
Principal area: the Principal area is always opposite the main entrance in a house. In Eastern cultures, it is called “Fu Wei” which means “good life”. It is the ideal place for bedrooms.
Health area: the Health area represents health, vitality and friends. It is also called “T’ien Yi” the “celestial medicine man”. By activating this area, placing crystals or chimes, one can influence the healing of very ancient illnesses for which the modern medicine has proved useless. This area is ideal for the main bedroom or even the dining room.
Longevity area: the Longevity area represents peace, balance and harmony. It is a very important place for enhancing harmonious relationships within the family members. It is a good place for the grand parents’ room. You may stimulate this place with crystals and mirrors when disturbances appear within the family.

It is the ideal place for the office or the kitchen or any room where you deal with financial considerations. But it is the worst zone for a bathroom or the toilet, as all running water in this area will make you loose money. This place has to remain enlightened as much as possible and stimulated by huge crystals and personal intimate objects.

It is a good place for the toilets, as the flush will regularly evacuate the negative Ki. If your main entrance opens directly onto this area, you should put something in between in order to deviate the Ki otherwise you might have serious troubles in your health and wealth.
Disaster area: the Disaster area is also called “Ho Hai” which means “danger and injuries”. This area is much more related to minor casualties, frustrations, delays and minor loss. It is a good place for food stock, toilets or washing and drying machines.
Six Shar area: the Six Shar or “Lui Shar” area means the “six deaths”. In this place, you tend to delay your decisions or you may get trapped into endless judiciary cases. It is a good place for the kitchen or the toilets.
Five Ghosts area: the Five Ghosts area represents the possibilities of fire, thief and financial run outs. It the main entrance opens onto this area, you might get robbed or have a fire in the house. It is a good place for toilets or food stocks.
