A Master of Feng Shui is a distinction given to people who are qualified to teach advanced levels of Feng Shui. Did you know that Feng Shui is actually both a science and an art form?
Although Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art form, its practice of creating a positive, balanced flow of energy in any physical space is still taught in Feng Shui schools today.
What types of people pursue the journey of becoming a Master of Feng Shui? Often those who work in professions that work with, and value physical space– such as interior design, or landscape design, pursue Feng Shui training. Why? It enables them to create not only functional, but healthy environments for their clients that improve the flow of positive Qi and reduce blockages to natural energy flow. Thus, clients recognize the positive effects of the work they’ve paid for in their everyday life through the way that the space both functions, and feels and in turn how it improves their quality of life. In other words, holistic value is infused into an otherwise practical service, pushing practitioners’ skill sets to a level that goes beyond physical space.
In school, the history of Feng Shui, including the two major schools of thought, Form School and Compass School is taught. major Feng Shui concepts like the Five Elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water) and Yin/Yang; and how to apply Feng Shui concepts to the analysis of interior and exterior environments
How does one obtain that level of qualification?
Attending a Feng Shui school, such as one belonging to the International Feng Shui Guild selection of professional Feng Shui schools is the first step to becoming a Master of Feng Shui.
Being a Feng Shui Master is about more than simply the knowledge of the subject, however, and involves a commitment to continuously learn about the practice and its theory.
You may have heard rumours that Feng Shui is a rich man’s practice. Why?
This rumour is linked to the idea that Feng Shui is practiced with the sole aim of providing wealth. This stems from the practice of a Bazi chart; the Four Pillars of Destiny. These pillars are comprised of your birth year, birth month, birthday, and birth time to ultimately construct your Bazi chart. Insights can be drawn from your Bazi chart, which can provide insight into your talents, resources, and capabilities–and your ability to attain wealth.
How do Feng Shui Masters exercise their expertise?
Feng Shui consultants usually visit clients on-site of their home, workplace, or development with the aim of providing insight into how to create an environment that connects and supports you to a stronger, healthier, happier, and more successful life.
