Feng Shui

Ok, I'm gonna be talking about Feng Shui. Does anyone know what that means?
Feng Shui stems from the chinese word 'Feng', the force of the wind and 'Shui', the force of the water.

The ideal place to put your house is Xue (pronouced Shu) - its has an open space infront known as the "Bright Hall" or "Ming Tang", and the 4 mythical animals surround it. The Red Pheonix is the front, the Black Tortoise is the back, and the White Tiger and Green Dragon to each side (The dragon has to be higher than the tiger)

What is Qi?
Qi (pronounced chi) was a meteorogical category composed of six phases: cold, warmth, wind, rain, darkness, and light. Taoists claim that each person has 3 different treasures: Jing - Hormones, blood and other biochemical components of the body, Qi - breath, energy and life force, and Shen - intelect and spirit. Qi does not only flow through our bodies, but it flows through our cosmos and our earth. The purpose of Feng Shui is to create environments in which Qi flows smoothly.

Yin and Yang.

That is yin and yang. Yin is the dark and Yang is the light. Yin and Yang are forces in constant movement, acting together to create energy. Just as night would not exist without day, we cannot have dark without light, or shadow without sun. An underlying concept of Fung Shui is how to balance between these two opposing forces within our lives and enviornment.
