to the EPA, people spend 87% of their time indoors. It makes sense that feng shui
is becoming so popular to harmonize our interior environments.
In the west feng shui was first used mainly by people with a holistic
lifestyle. But now as evidence
supports the success of Feng shui, there is a new trend spreading into
commercial building arenas. In New York City, Feng Shui is being used by many prominent
architects and builders.
What is Feng Shui?
Shui is translated from the Chinese to mean “wind and water.” It follows the principles of the Tao to create living
environments that are in harmony with nature.
Feng shui creates balance and harmony in homes, businesses, architectural
design, interior design and exterior landscaping.
art of Feng Shui has been used in Asia for thousands of years. Its influence can
be seen in the many pagodas, buildings and gardens throughout Asia. Today, architects and builders in Asian cities would not
consider designing or building commercial structures without first considering
the elements of feng shui.
residential builders also consider the impact of feng shui on the placement and
design of the structures. In Taiwan
for example, the average family knows enough about feng shui to enable them to
make an educated decision regarding their home purchase. They will pass by a
house if the feng shui of the location or of the building is not harmonious. It
is good business to design and build it right the first time; prosperity will
follow for both the seller and the buyer. In
this country, Asians are a significant percentage of the home buying market.
are just starting to understand the nature of Feng Shui and how it can improve
our lives personally, professionally and financially.
My feng shui teacher told me that one of the reasons the United States is
so powerful and successful as a country, is because of the good feng shui of the
geography. So in a sense in the
past, architects and builders in the U.S. did not find it too necessary to apply
principles of feng shui (building with harmony in mind) since the geography as a
nation has filled in the gaps for them. But
now as population density has increased and property values rise; less options
are available for utilizing natural land feng shui.
We need to pay much closer attention to applying principles of feng shui
in designing our communities and commercial structures.
We will all benefit from the resulting harmony. If we all utilized good
feng shui to design our cities and homes, we would not experience the levels of
crime or poverty we see growing around us now.
The nation as a whole will also experience increased prosperity and
harmony as well.
How Asian Businesses use Feng ShuiFeng Shui consultants are used along side architects during the design phase of new building projects. They then work along side the interior designers and landscapers, to ensure that the buildings and their surroundings are as auspicious as possible. Companies then move in and prosper. As a result the developer acquires a reputation for creating buildings in which people do well. As their reputation spreads more and more people want buildings by that developer, the developers can then charge premium prices for their properties. From the occupants point of view it also makes good business sense to pay the premium for the better building since their businesses will do better.
Businesses use feng shui because, quite simply, it works. A hotel in Australia was virtually empty until an Asian company bought it and called in a feng shui consultant. He said the main problem in the building was the staircase; it faced the front doors and so the hotel's energy was shooting outwards and being lost. The staircase was moved and the hotel's luck (bottom line) changed almost overnight.
"Today, those in powerful positions do not take chances where feng shui is concerned. I was surprised to find hard-nosed businessmen anxious to try feng shui as an added tool to clinch deals, enhance corporate clout, or expand their businesses." - Sarah Rossbach, Feng Shui author.

Feng Shui Testimonial:
"Feng Shui was only a word to me before I put my house up for sale in Westlake Village, CA about 14 months ago. Just before my house was listed, my realtor set up a series of previews. When I happened to be home on a couple of occasions, I was surprised to find that a large proportion of these agents were Asian. I knew that the population of Asians in Southern California was growing at a rapid pace, but why were they looking at my house so intently?
The day my house was listed for sale, I had three offers. Two of them were from agents representing Asian buyers. I found out at this point that my house had good Feng Shui. This was obviously something that I gave no thought to while watching the house being built, nor when I was decorating it. Go figure? The morale of this story is that Feng Shui works, even when you don't know you have it." - Rob Curland, Albuquerque, NM - January 18, 2005
