What is Chi?


You might be asking yourself, what is this thing called chi and why should I be concerned about it? Underlying the principles of Feng Shui is the concept of a basic energy of life called “chi”. It is the all-encompassing, all-permeating, unifying force which flows through all things, animate and inanimate. The atmosphere is filled with chi, and people possess chi, which is the source of each individual’s unique presence.


The fact is that everything in the world has its origins in the world of energy. Everything in the universe is an energy vibration frequency expressing itself in different forms. We have solid mass form energies and invisible energies that surround us. We can easily see solid mass form energies, such as tables, desks, beds, plants, buildings, etc.


A few of the invisible energies affecting us are radio and t.v. waves, power lines, harmful EMF’s, color frequencies, thought forms, energies being projected and shaped by the solid mass energies and many more. Most individuals aren’t consciously aware of these energies, especially the invisible ones, and the impact they have on us.

Your thoughts are a form of energy at a higher frequency that can be changed in an instant which then changes your demeanor. You can’t see your thought forms (invisible energy) just as you can’t see the invisible energies in your environment, but they both have a distinct effect on you. When your thoughts are chaotic you find yourself out of balance.


Since your environmental energies and you are in constant interaction, you could find yourself out of balance but unaware that it could be your personal space that is causing your imbalance and frustrations. The content and arrangement of your environment affect the flow of the vital energies that are continually around you. Your environment either enhances the life-force energy or detracts and drains it.


Just as you have your own personal energy field every structure and household contains it’s own unique field of energy patterns, too. Whatever is going on in your surroundings is then integrated into your personal energy field. The imbalanced energy patterns held throughout the structure and household affects your ability to maintain your own internal balance of chi (our life force) which can cause you to work harder than necessary to achieve your desired goals. Stated simply you and your environment are emerging bodies of energy interacting with each other, weaving your life situations.

These invisible energies are balanced by the appropriate placement of the visible energies. This means the form, content, placement, and symbolism of every object in your environment is affecting you on many levels of consciousness. Feng Shui is the balancing of the interplay between personal and environmental chi. The more the chi is flowing through your surroundings in harmony and balance the more it supports your life force which empowers you to operate at your optimal potential.


Here is another example to help you to better understand this art. Feng Shui can be related to acupuncture, chiropractic, or aspirin for the environment. One of the ways your personal chi can get drained is if you would have pain in an area of your body. This pain creates a blockage in your energy flow and drains you. When you are experiencing this pain it directs your attention and focus towards it, thus taking away valuable energy which could be utilized more beneficially in other ways.


To dissipate this pain you usually do a number of things. For example, you might have an acupuncture treatment, chiropractic adjustment, or simply take an aspirin. Once the pain is dissipated the energy blockage is removed and you are in the flow again, back in balance, and feeling good. The same thing happens to your environment.


If there is an imbalance or blockage in the energy patterns and it is not flowing in accordance with it’s best natural state, it causes a draining and dismal effect on the surroundings. Once the principles of Feng Shui have been applied to dissipate the energy imbalances your environment is also in balance and feeling good!
