It was believed in the earlier times in China that Chi ( energy)  had the power to convey blessings from the dead to the living. Benevolent wishes of the deceased were carried from the burial grounds to the residences of the living. The location of gravesites was of major importance to families seeking the support of their ancestors. It is from manuscripts describing this process that we gain some of our earliest insights into Chi. In the fourth century scroll giving instructions for positioning graves we find not only one of the earliest references to Chi, possibly the first reference to Feng Shui.


The process of controlling the movement of Chi was conceived during the emperor days. When Chi moves too quickly, it invites natural disasters like precipitous slopes that threaten avalanches in the winter or raging of rivers that overflow their banks in spring. One of the greatest achievements of the first yellow emperor was building of the Yellow River flood – control system. Equal in effort to the great wall of China, which he completed in the North, this system consisted of a series of dam, locks and diversions of the river’s course, segments of which are still in use today.

Ensure that main door is free of afflictions like electric pole, trees and towers.


 If they are more than 50 feet away then it is not considered so much of an affliction, otherwise you need to shield the door either by plants or creepers. The entrance should also be given importance with regard to what is revealed when the front door opens into the house. The front door needs to be strong and should also be the biggest door in the house when compared to other doors. Aligning windows or doors in a straight line with the main door is considered bad Fengshui as the “Chi” energy coming in goes away directly. Feng Shui emphasizes on the point that "Chi"”energy should be allowed to settle down in a building and spread slowly and not rush out.
