The Role of Ying and Yang in Feng Shui
One very well known symbol essential to all forms of Feng Shui is the T’ai Chi too. It truly encapsulates the notion that all things have an opposite and that everything contains an outer of their opposite.
The receptive energy of Yin and the creative energy of Yang interacts positively to create a harmonious balance and perfectly demonstrate the way that the Chinese tradition really makes sense of the world.
So, how do we go about achieving and maintaining such equilibrium? It's all about good energy otherwise known as “chi”. Practicing Feng Shui encourages the free flow of such energy which in turn promotes good fortune in all aspects of life.
In fact, chi is an intrinsic part of many other alternative therapies from Eastern worlds or facilitating the healthy circulation of chi.
Reflexology, Indian head massage, Reiki, and tai chi are all designed to stimulate the circulation of chi. Aroma therapy can even be used in conjunction with Feng Shui. Certainly essential oils can be used to enhance very reasonable life aspects. For example, cinnamon and patchouli are believed to encourage prosperity. Bay and clove to enhance reputation and orange and cedar to promote a good career life.
Where to use these oils in your home will become clear a little later when we explore the magic square. Not only will aroma therapy incorporate pleasant aromas into your home, but burning essential oils can also be used to dispel negative energy and help the flow of chi.
