Are People Following Feng Shui Where You Live?

Feng Shui is an idea I first heard about perhaps eight years ago, and the first time I heard about it, it just seemed like a bunch of Chinese superstition.

Over a period of several years, I have come to believe there is something to it, and that perhaps whatever is behind it is something yet to be discovered scientifically (such as no one until recent times believing in germs because they couldn’t be seen).

Anyway, it seems as though people everywhere now know about Feng Shui.  Is it the same where all of you live?  Are any of you studying or using Feng Shui ideas?  What do people here think about it?

I’m just curious.

  1. Yes, I do. I have remodeled two kitchens using the principles. For example the cook should not have her back to entering people while she’s facing the stove. This, like so many other principles of Feng Shui, is common sense. Especially when you live in a family where things like balls fly through the air unexpectedly. Or like when you have to defend your kitchen terrain against sneak attacks while you’re cooking dinner and hungry teenage boys are foraging.

  2. Very good points, Susan!

    It seems Feng Shui principles have spread around the world like lightning this past decade.

  3. Susan – it seems your ability to cook “under fire” should earn you some kind of award – your description did make me laugh!
    Now – following MM’s post here, Miki and I got talking, and I began by saying that I don’t believe in all that hogwash…BUT..and your point about “common sense” rings true here Susan – the correct positioning of things around the house IS important. A chair out of place annoyingly draws the eye, a wrong seating arrangement (such as we currently have here in Turre, as opposed to our perfect one in Albir) makes our evening lounging in front of the telly not quite as satisfying as it used to be, and we’ll be taking steps to change that. I don’t think its anything to do with Karma, Zen or bad spirits – but a lot to do with contentment.

  4. Kevin and Miki,

    I’m curious as to whether Feng Shui has become popular in Spain. It seems to have become quite popular in Marrakesh, but mostly among foreigners, it seems.

  5. Last night my husband and I were lying on the bed before getting ready for bed and Andy (15) came in and started twirling the prism I had hung over the foot of the bed to improve the Feng Shui (since we have have a bathroom off our bedroom and an outside door to a deck as well, both energy drains) As he left, it kept twirling around by its string, casting little lights all over the room. Bob looked up and said “Yeah, that thing has really improved my life!” Well, you’d have to know all the “stuff” he’s going through at the moment to know how funny that was. But I will give that little crystal the credit for the big cleansing belly laugh that came from me! Maybe it’s just that we have to twirl it to make it work. There’s an idea!

  6. MM, I think the first thing the Spanish need to do is actually start buying STYLISH furniture (which is now happening) – before they start re-arranging it! 🙂
