The Origin of Feng Shui - Chinese Feng Shui


Feng Shui has originated from China about four thousand years ago, based on one of the oldest Chinese books Yi Jing (Book of Change).  Both Yi Jing and Feng Shui were written and developed in the Central of China, where the Han ethnic group came from.  Now, over 90% of the people in China are Han.


The practice of Feng Shui began in the Han dynasty around the 200 BC.  Chinese believed that the heaven and earth were united and had life and energy that affect people.  Every living thing on earth was connected and there was an energy field ‘Qi’ that affected them.  Such energy ‘Qi’ would be bad or good, depending on the topography, climate and its physical surrounding.


Chinese also believed that Qi would be affected by the five elements – Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood.  Later on, they further developed Feng Shui by adding astronomy and other theories (such as Flying Stars and Eight Mansions) into it. 


There are rumours about the origin of Feng Shui, saying that it was started in Tibet, it went to India and then went back to Central of China.  This is totally untrue.  While Tibet and India have their own geomancy, Feng Shui is uniquely developed by the Han in the Central of China.


Western people often mix up Feng Shui with Vastu Shastra (Indian geomancy) as they are both eastern geomancy.  They are actually two different systems and based on different philosophies and calculations.



If interested, you can have a detailed explanation by consulting an authenticated Feng Shui practitioner.  Good Luck!
