Lights and Lighting in Feng Shui: How Lighting is The Source Of Yang Chi and One Of The Ancient Celestial Remedies...
Can you imagine a life or living without light!
In Feng Shui, Lighting is such an important feature because "Light or Lighting" is considered to be the origin of "yang chi" or "yang energy." This means that "Light" - the Source of Yang Chi has an important connection to Sheng Chi - which is considered "Life Giving Chi". In fact, in Feng Shui, light and lighting is such an important aspect of our lives that I would go as far as saying that deprivation of Light can completely affect and shape a persons personality.
For instance, if you took a young child or even an average person and put them in a windowless building to live... the negative effect would be quite outstanding. As human beings we are very visual beings so if we cant see out a window - its powerful for us.
OK, let's take our example a step further... Now imagine the same windowless building with very low lighting or even without any lights inside at all - 24 hours a day - low lights or no light at all!! Without a doubt, living conditions like this are absolutely devastating! (Which is probably why they used to make this as a punishment for prisoners in war time!)
When the environmental conditions are dark, stagnant, lifeless, negative, dull or lacking windows, extra lighting can bring entirely new energies, giving rooms and even entire buildings a completely facelift. That's why this is such a powerful Feng Shui Remedy. Feng Shui Lighting can transform the energy of almost any room - even when there is toxic energy at an unseen level (ie according to the Flying Stars building horoscope).
What many people don't realise is the opposite condition, too much lighting or excessive use of lighting can also create Bad Feng Shui Problem in the same way as having no light can... For instance, excessive lighting makes people unsettled, hyperactive, anxious, nervous, peaceless because its so overstimulating and this type of condition does have disastrous results with young children or old people.
Sometimes there are conditions within the horoscope of a building where lighting is not the answer to dull, lifeless rooms and a more permanent or powerful solution is required to correct this condition. Having said, that improving your lighting in any room is sure to make some type of improvement. For rooms, where the energy does not improve... you need a look into the unseen influences of the Flying Stars horoscope for the building to get your answers. Ultimately this type of toxic energy can only be "cured" by the X-Ray Vision the Flying Stars Feng Shui Consultation can offer.
