Overview

With feng shui, the ancient Chinese art of placement, you can change your life by rearranging your home. The careful arrangement of the contents of any room, from kitchen to office, can dramatically improve your health, finances, and relationships. Creating good feng shui can be as simple as moving your furniture, and as subtle as hanging a mirror or highlighting an auspicious color. Feng shui can be as personal as your own decorating taste: Once you set your goals and priorities - whether to improve family harmony or succeed in business - you can put feng shui to work especially for you. This easy-to-use room-by-room handbook provides tips for good feng shui in every part of your home, as well as simple cures for feng shui problems: If you have an interior staircase that directly faces your front door, good luck may be running directly out the door - and out of your life. A mirror on the landing of the stairs can draw in positive energy and circulate it around your home for better luck. For more restful sleep and better health, move your bed away from overhanging beams. A beam that cuts across a bed can create aches and pains in the parts of the body exposed to it - virtually "cutting in half" the life of the sleeper - and a beam that divides the bed between the sleepers can result in marital problems. Keep stove burners clean - clogged burners can block your income potential - and use all the burners regularly. The heat and energy passing through these openings will keep your family's business prospects from growing cold. Move your desk so it faces your office door, not the wall. If your back is to the door, you'll be surprised by people coming in - as well as by what they have to say. Enhance your finances by placing a fish tank in your living room or office. The flow of water represents cash flow, and the fish symbolize abundant wealth - there are always more fish in the sea!

Emphasizing balance--between yin and yang, as well as comfort and style--in every environment, the ancient Chinese art of feng shui demonstrates how to arrange your home to enhance your fortune, health, and happiness. This room-by-room handbook provides tips for good feng shui and easy fixes for problems in every part of the home, from the kitchen to the study. Line art, charts, & 2-color text throughout.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Literally "wind and water," feng shui is a Chinese belief system dedicated to finding harmonious siting plans for buildings by taking into account the metaphysics of energy flow, geography, and a complex calculation of time cycles and the influence of the five elements of the cosmos. Architectural historian Lip has written an information-packed introduction to classical Chinese architecture replete with diagrams, photographs, and her own beautiful brush paintings. After a detailed dissection of the way Chinese structures function, she explains the core concepts of feng shui and then examines actual Ming and Qing temples and palaces in terms of their placement and structure. British feng shui consultant Master Lam Kam Chuen has produced a more practical book designed with the homeowner or apartment dweller in mind. Short text blocks are interspersed with vivid watercolor examples of siting and energy flow, with tips for improving the harmony of many common living situations. Although he cautions that without the services of a good geomancer we are dealing with a simplified knowledge of feng shui, he gives such hints as how to assure restful sleep by solidifying the tortoise placement of our beds and how to avoid a stagnant social life by not locating dwellings on cul de sacs. Journalist Lagatree provides a very quick and simple overview of feng shui. Oriented primarily to interior rearrangements rather than house sitings, the book might provide tips for realtors dealing with Chinese buyers or advice for designers who do not want to imperil clients, but it doesn't provide a thorough grounding for readers new to an intricate and foreign way of looking at the physical spaces that surround them. Because of its historical insights and in-depth analyses, Lip's book would be appropriate for academic libraries while Chuen's thorough but readable advice would be the best choice for general readership.David McClelland, Temple Univ. Lib., Philadelphia

    Read this book if you want a general overview

    I felt that more details were required. Several times, the author states to do something to a door or window. Yet, fails to indicate whether she is referring to the "inside" or the "outside" of the object. This book lightly touches on several areas of Feng Chui. The author uses simplistic vocabulary throughout the book. Thereby, making the book more easy-to-read for a wider audience. It also "flows" well for an advanced reader. I finished the book in less than 30 minutes, and felt I had a generalized overview of the art of Feng Shui. I made several changes in my home that day. The following day, I accomplished many tasks that I had been procrastinating for months!

    Easy Feng Shui for Beginners

    This book is laid out in a very easy to read and understand way. It was my first Feng Shui book and I learned all the basics from its text and pictures. An excellent book!
