5 Basic Principles of Feng Shui in China
Scientific Feng Shui is based on Chinese classical custome and combined with modern multidisciplinary science-related disciplines to select and arrange the best geographical location.And here are 5 principles that basically support the Feng Shui theory in China.
This theory of Feng Shui regards society as a whole system, which centers on human beings, including all things in heaven and earth. Every complete system in society is an element of mutual connection, mutual restriction, interdependence, mutual opposition, and mutual transformation. The function of Feng Shui is to grasp the relationship between the subsystems, optimize the structure, and seek the best combination.
That is, according to the objectivity of the environment, adopt a lifestyle suitable for nature. China is a pragmatic country, adjusting measures to local conditions is the embodiment of pragmatic thinking. According to the actual situation, it is the essence of Feng Shui to adopt practical and effective methods to make people and buildings suitable for nature, also integrate nature and man.
It is one of the most basic principles of Feng Shui. Mountains are the skeleton of the earth, and water is the source of life for everything. Without water, people can’t survive. Almost all the primitive tribes found in archaeology were in the riverside platform, which was adapted to the hunting, fishing, and fruit picking at that time.
Chinese people think that the mountain will be their the strongest back up in life, and the alive and fresh water means the money in pocket will rock consistantly!
From the geography point, China is located in the northern hemisphere and the eastern part of Eurasia. Most of the land is located to the north of the Tropic of Cancer (latitude 23.26 n), and the sunshine in the whole year comes from the south. Houses facing south facilitate sunlight.
As we all know that the sunlight is very beneficial for human being: first, it can keep people warm. In winter, the temperature in the south room is 1-2 degrees higher than that in the north room; second, it participates in the synthesis of vitamin D in the human body, and children often go outside for sunshine to prevent rickets; third, ultraviolet rays in the sun have bactericidal effect; fourth, it can enhance human immune function.
Sitting in the north and facing to the south, not only for good sunlight but also to avoid the north wind. China’s terrain determines that its climate is monsoon type. There is a cold current in Siberia in winter, cool wind in the Pacific in summer, and the wind direction changes constantly throughout the year.
Chinese people also believed that the much bright and warm their house are, the more good luck will come to them. On the contrast, the cold,wet and dark houses will have some bad luck with them. That’s why those dark houses often show in the horrible movies.
Moderate means that the house and place are just proper size, not too small, too high, or too low. The other layer of moderate means the center. The principle of moderation also requires that the center should be highlighted, the layout should be neat, and the additional facilities should be closely around the axis.
In the typical Feng Shui landscape, there is a central axis, which is parallel to the longitude of the earth and extends to the north and south.
The north end of the central axis is preferably a mountain range, forming a T-shaped combination, and the southern end has a spacious Ming Tang (plain). The East and west sides of the central axis are surrounded by buildings and curved rivers. The imperial mausoleum of the Ming and Qing Dynasties was built according to this principle.
Also, it is not only the spot and house using the Feng Shui theory, also the 12 Chinese Zodiac.
According to those principles we mentioned above and
