Using Mustika Pearls in Feng Shui
Feng Shui is a technique of placement and arrangement of living or working space to bring about harmony within the environment. Pronounced in English as “fung shway,” the practice is thousands of years old and originated in China. The original feng shui practice did not only involve the placement of objects within a space but also the placement of homes and other buildings to work in perfect harmony with nature. Modern day architects still use the practice when designing buildings when they want the structure to make the most of the available natural landscape without disruption but with harmony.
The concept of Qi, pronounced ch’i, plays a vital role in feng shui. Qi is simply the concept of the flow of energy. Thus, feng shui technique largely depends upon the placement of objects that will best compliment the flow of energy within any space. Many enthusiasts of the tradition firmly believe that applying feng shui to the home or office will have a positive effect on good luck, energy, health, wealth and relationships by creating a peaceful living and/or working environment and increasing the positive flow of energy to all who enter the space. Various items and decorating techniques are very popular for use in feng shui; some of these include lucky symbols, crystals, rocks, color in the form of paint, upholstery, window treatments and flooring, scent in the form of herbs, essential oils and perfumes, plants, flowers and mustika pearls. Color plays a huge role in achieving feng shui balance as does the four elements of Earth, fire, water and air.
