FENG SHUI HISTORY

HONOR YOUR WHOLE SELF

SPIRIT, the “WHO” that makes YOU, YOU
MIND, where YOU are NOW, where YOU are Going
BODY, YOUR Temple, YOUR Center of YOUR World

“Feng shui” is a traditional and philosophical art and science of harmonizing and balancing
everyone with the surrounding environment. The term Feng Shui literally translates as "wind-water".
The practice of Feng Shui discusses the architecture of one’s surroundings in metaphoric
terms as a way of seeing and interacting with the energy or "invisible forces" that
bind the universe, earth, and humanity together, known as “qi”.

“Qi”

Qi, is the root or basic material from which all exists, the active vibratory principle
forming everything in creation. All is made of electromagnetic energy, continuously vibrating
at differing frequencies, circulating in continuum, animating the forms of the world around us.
“Qi” literally translates as “life force” or "breath", "air", and figuratively as "material energy", or "energy flow".
In Japan it is known as Ki,” in India, “Prana” or “Shakti.” In ancient Egypt it is referred to it as “Ka.”
To the ancient Greeks it is “Pneuma.” For the Native Americans it is the “Great Spirit.”
For the Christians, the “Holy Spirit.” In Africa it’s known as “Ashe” and in Hawaii as “Ha” or “Mana.”
Qi is the central underlying principle in traditional Chinese Medicine, Meditational practices and Martial Arts.

HISTORY

Feng Shui has been around since the ninth century B.C., it was documented as early as 960 B.C. A great
flowering of Feng Shui took place during the latter part of the Zhou dynasty due to the Taoist philosophers such
as Loa-tzu, author of Tao Te Ching, and Mo Ti, the teacher of universal love and the third great philosopher
Confucius. These complimentary philosophies of Taoism, Buddhism, Shinto, Vaastu Shastra and Confucianism
formed Chinese and Indian culture and strongly influenced the development of Feng Shui. This era was the
longest dynasty in Chinese history, reigning from 1046 B.C. to 256 B.C. where by the end of the 2nd
millennium B.C., the Zhou dynasty began to emerge in the Yellow River valley, overrunning the territory of
the Shang. Another great evolution of Feng Shui occurred during the Han dynasty (206 B.C.-A.D. 220)
with the expansion of the Chinese empire during the Han dynasty as it incorporated a “myriad geographical
landscapes, climates and external environments, each with their own individual Feng Shui needs.
The Great Wall of China was also built based on the principles of Feng Shui in mind as is shown by the curve
of the wall as this keeps the flow of Ch'i moving. Archaeologists have also found evidence that date around
5500 years ago to reinforce the presence of Vasstu Shastra (building science). As of present claims,
Yangshao (a Neolithic culture that existed extensively along the Yellow River in China) and Hongshan
(a Neolithic culture in northeastern China) cultures are said to have evidence of the earliest use of Feng Shui.
Astronomy forms the basis of early practices of this ancient art. In 4000 B.C. during the Zhou Era,
a constellation called Yingshi (the then Ding) was used to indicate the appropriate time to build a capital city.
A grave at Puyang (around 4000 B.C.) that contains mosaics - actually a Chinese star map of the
Dragon and Tiger asterisms and Beidou (the Big Dipper, Ladle or Bushel) -is oriented along a north-south axis.
The presence of both round and square shapes in the Puyang tomb, at Hongshan ceremonial centers and at
the late Longshan settlement at Lutaigang, suggests that Gaitian Cosmography (heaven=round, earth=square)
existed in Chinese society long before it appeared in the Zhou Bi Suan Jing.
Until the invention of the magnetic compass, Feng Shui relied on astronomy to find correlations
between mankind and the universe confirming the use of such Cosmography as it bears a striking
resemblance to modern Feng Shui devices and formulas appearing on a piece of jade unearthed at Hanshan
dated around 3000 B.C. Beginning with palatial structures at Erlitou, all capital cities of China followed
rules of Feng Shui for their design and layout. During the Zhou era, the Kaogong codified these rules.
The Carpenter's Manual Lu Ban Jing codified “Rules For Builders” laid out detailed Feng Shui code for
building everything from the graves and tombs from Puyang to Mawangdui and beyond to cover every
aspect of a beings living and breathing space.
