Vastu is an ancient vedic science/philosophy. Vastu
was first revealed by the Source of Supreme Consciousness to a
Vedic Sage who was seeking answers as to how a person could live a
life relatively free of the sufferings and insecurities that even
then had plagued man for much too long.
Many feel that the early Buddhist monks brought
Vastu from India to other parts of Asia were it evolved into the
various schools of feng shui. Vastu is sometimes called the
"missing key" to feng shui. Others feel that the two
philosophies are totally separate and were revealed to different
cultures in different places depending on their needs.
In any case even though their differences may be
irreconcilable in many areas, they marry so beautifully in other
areas. It takes more than one tool to build a house. Use whatever
will enhance the energy of the site.
It is suggested that if moving or building to apply
the principles of Vastu as the value of correct foundation cannot
be over-emphasized, particularly to a seeker of enlightenment. If
in a home with faulty Vastu and moving is not an option, employ
feng shui cures.
Knowledge of Vastu will help the feng shui
practitioner and energy worker. Once it is understood how cosmic
energy flows in relation to the site, it will be possible to
troubleshoot and stop or predict health problems, misfortune,
divorce or other sufferings before they manifest.
One might ask how the site can affect one's health,
happiness and fortune. Think for one moment about the documented
disadvantages of living under or close to a huge electrical
transformer. The bio-magnetic field of a plot when seriously
disturbed by the addition of a structure is no less dangerous.
Originating in China more than 2,000
years ago, Feng Shui is quickly becoming a part of architecture,
building development, and home living. So truly, what is this
thing that recommends avoidance of sharp angles and putting metal
objects in your home for balance and other strange
Feng Shui can be literally translated as 'Wind
and Water' or "the natural forces of the
universe." These forces affect everything in our world. It is
an ancient Chinese system in which we are able to harmonize man
made structures within the environment. It is a way to mindfully
organize your environment so that it fully supports you in life.
It is literally the 'Art' of establishing
harmony between the winds and waters of our natural surroundings
and the buildings we construct within them. Recognizing and
working with the natural flow and effects of the energy of our
environment rather than working in spite of them or, worse still,
against them ensures that we have the positive forces of mother
nature with us in our endeavors.
Feng Shui is not based on any religion,
mysticism, or superstition. Rather it is a mathematical science.
Feng Shui is based on four aspects: Building, Environment,
People, and Time. With proper application of Feng Shui in
your life to achieve many life goals. Feng Shui is a bag of tools
to use for challenges you face, gathered from myriad social and
physical science. Feng Shui is a tool that help us to decode the
messages we receive consciously and subconsciously from colour,
shape, patterns, scents, sounds, and textures. Its is the tools we
can use to manipulate the physical world around us to best suit
our needs and desires
Traditional Feng Shui does not prescribe any
flutes, mirrors, charms, chants, or other mystical objects.
Rather, a qualified practitioner only utilizes the five Chinese
elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water to
bring a place into an energetic balance. These elements can take
the form of many objects such as a brass pot, or an aquarium, but
the actual remedies are still strictly the element. Many books
have written about using mirrors as a Feng Shui cure. In
actuality, mirrors used to be made of polished brass (a metal
remedy) and in the Middle Ages, it worked as a cure. Today’s
modern mirrors do not have enough of the metal element to be
prescribed as a remedy. When asked today, about where to put the
mirror, most qualified practitioners answer "In the bathroom,
which is where it is needed most!" Mirrors have always been
misrepresented as a Feng Shui "cure" by a lot of
Another of the fundamentals of Feng Shui is the
effects that magnetism has on the human body. Hence the
development by the Chinese of the magnetic compass and its use in
determining the influences of magnetism in our lives.
Naturally, it is best to ensure there are no
such blockages by always constructing buildings which will be in
harmony with the surrounding environment from the day they are
designed. However, as this is not always possible, we need to
'remedy' our environments from time to time, just like an
Acupuncturist remedies our bodies. This then is the work of the
traditional Feng Shui Master.
