Is Feng Shui a Belief?

Some people claim that feng shui is a belief, but this is not true. This practice has no spiritual or metaphysical power, and instead harnesses the power of nature. In fact, it is based on the eight cardinal directions, which are not a matter of faith or philosophy. However, this concept has been abused and is not in accordance with most religions.

Some practitioners believe that luck has nothing to do with one specific lucky event. In feng shui, luck refers to a combination of categorized events that occur over a long period of time. For example, a person may experience career luck if they get several pay raises and promotions over the years. Other people believe that bad feng shui occurs when the opposite sexes live in the same house.

While there is no hard and fast rule for implementing feng shui in your home, you do need to make some adjustments based on your unique circumstances. Ideally, the location of your doorways should be opposite to the direction you wish your qi to flow. This will help you to attract the good energy that you want. When it comes to feng shui, the best position is to place the entrance to a room in the center, facing the door or window.

Feng shui practitioners say that the compass used in China was an important tool in determining the location of the ideal grave for the deceased. Many tombs were built near water or on mountains because of this. Other tombs were built near a body of water. Sun Yatsen Mausoleum in Nanjing was built according to feng shui principles. Despite the belief that it is a pseudo-religious practice, there are plenty of examples of actual feng shui burials and practices.
