Wind and Water Feng Shui, As most the Feng Shui enthusiasts know that the word “Shui” in “Feng Shui” means water and “Feng” means “Wind”. Wind and Water Feng Shui, these are two Chinese Characters of “Feng Shui” (Wind Water).
Some Feng Shui skeptics may ask where Feng Shui is or show me the Feng Shui or wind and water Feng Shui.
In fact, if we think about it wisely, we are all living inside Feng Shui (Wind and Water Feng Shui ) world. We can survive a few days without water. However, we cannot survive more than 30 minutes without wind (air).
If the Earth we live in without Feng Shui, we all die.
Next time when you come across a Feng Shui Skeptic, if they ask you such question again, tell them Feng is wind. It is air or Qi. Then you tell them to close their mouth and use their thumb and index finger to hold tight to their nose, as tight as no air can get through. Work out how long they can hold their breath for.
For an ordinary person, I bet they can’t hold their breath for more than 10 minutes, unless they had special training. The world record of holding breath under water is 22:22 minutes. This means even the highly trained professional cannot live without Feng , air or Qi for more than half an hour.
Feng Shui is all about Qi, the flowing of Qi. In classical Feng Shui Text it states: “Qi is the mother of Water; Water is the son of Qi”. So the secret to Feng Shui is the flow of Qi, air, wind or Feng. In the other words it is the flow of water too. By combining Feng wind and Shui water together they become Feng Shui.
Feng Shui Master Guo Po (276-324) wrote the first and the earliest Feng Shui book was called “Zang Shu” (The Book of Burial) is often considered to be the founder of the Feng Shui principles. “Feng Shui” was first mentioned in his book too.
A few sentences from Zang Shu: Wind and Water Feng Shui
“Qi is dispersed when it rides on the wind [Feng]“
And is halted when it is bounded by a water course [Shui].”
The ancients were able to accumulate it and prevent it from dispersing.
They could channel it and keep it in one place.
And so it was called Feng Shui.
When water flows slowly, so does the qi. That is why in an area when the Feng Shui (wind water) in a river flows slowly, the Qi flows slowly too. It looks like the Qi wants to stay there. When Qi slowly comes and stays at an area, this area must be a good area. To inspect the Qi flows slow or fast, it is to look the shape of the incoming Qi. When water Qi flowing slowly it must be in the shape of sine waves. Like this.
By apply the above Feng Shui principal; it is easy to understand why some areas or suburbs near such shape of water flow are doing well. In Melbourne, the suburbs have such shape of water flow are Toorak and South Yarra. Now you understand why these suburbs are doing very well.
If you go to Google map and check out the shape of the river in other suburbs, there are no other suburbs with such sine wave river patterns.
