The History of Feng Shui


Lo Shu TurtleOriginating in China almost 6,000 years ago, Feng Shui literally means "wind"(Feng) and "water"(Shui). Feng Shui is also referred to as "Geo-mancy" or "Earth Wisdom".

It is an ancient method of constructing and optimizing residences to bring about happiness, abundance and harmony. It includes architecture, urban planning, interior design, garden design, and placement of objects in our environment. It also involves the layout, framework, materials and colors of building structures. These rules of thumb allow us to make the most ideal arrangement in any given situation.

In ancient China, farms and villages were auspiciously placed within the protective folds of mountains, shielded from harmful winds and nurtured by the gentle, winding streams. The people who practiced these principles prospered in agriculture and trade and grew strong and powerful. They produced social, cultural and military leaders unlike their neighbors who were exposed to harsh winds and inhospitable terrain. The art of Feng Shui was refined over many centuries, producing an abundance of learned scholars.

Traditionally, Feng Shui was considered a highly guarded secret of the Chinese Imperial Court. All Feng Shui Masters were forbidden to release their potentially powerful knowledge to outsiders. The practice of Feng Shui was considered so powerful that it would be devastating in the hands of the enemy. Consequently, knowledge was handed down from father to son within family traditions. The turbulent history of China has only helped to reinforce this tendency and this secrecy often continues, even today.

The Lo Shu Turtle has been said to bring eight different types of heavenly blessings but it is very attuned towards bringing wealth luck. When it is depicted with a baby as it is shown here, it is said to be especially powerful.

Every one of you please support your help, not only from Chinese but also other races who may or may not face this in future. It is not a moment of “sit and wait” to see what happen next, that is a loss of Chinese Art and Inheritage and also FACTS;

WE had lost one Chinese traditional festive,[端午節----DuanWu Jie] and also a facts to Korea, which the festive was actually belonging to our Chinese.

Whether you are Chinese or not,
WE don’t want to lose further inheritance and facts. The act is like the robbing in daylight and distorting the facts of where they suppose to belong. WE, don’t want our next and future generations being fooled and confused by what is not real or true.

WE must stop the misleading which may affect the future, and correct those who are not familiar with our Chinese inheritance but decide what is what.

Please help us, by supporting us to vote for keeping the Chinese inheritance and facts.

Note: Please join in to express your support, WE shall find a way to convey the related details and data as well as the result of voting to the United Nation(UN) for cross referencing.

Note: Please circulate this news to other web surfers, regardless of races or beliefs, to vote here and to fight for the inheritance and facts. This is a war, a tough war, to fight for not only the inheritance but also the facts.
People, please equip yourself with the internet access and come here to strengthen our union to fight for what is not true.

WE, again, welcome every one of you, regardless of who you are and where you from, to bring us your strength to strive for TRUTH.
