What is Ch'i?

The Winds of Ch’i Obeying the Speed Limits

Ch’i, vitality or life force, and loosely translated by westerners, as energy, are words used throughout feng shui books. In feng shui ch’i is expressed or interpreted through the ambiance of a room or space. More succinctly, we experience ch’i through our five senses. We see and respond to color, shape, form, and pathways. We experience ch’i through aromas, both pleasant and not so pleasant; through touch, smooth, textured, painful, hot or cold. We experience ch’i through taste---sweet, sour, dry, spoiled, and, through sound---loud, soft, obnoxious and so on. As we interact with our surroundings the role that ch’i plays deeply influences our feelings. Many things such as the color of the wall, the pattern on a fabric, the density of the furniture and the pathway through the room all dictate the vitality of a space. And the level of that vitality is what dictates how we respond. Just like the speed limit and exit signs on the highway provide us cues on how fast we should travel or when to change course, so does the ch’i expressed by the elements in a room dictate how we respond in a space.

Constantly in motion, the ch’i of nature follows cyclic patterns that reveal the process of transformation. Seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and touching affect our vitality, which is directly connected to our moods. Adjusting the amount of stimulation each of our senses experiences transforms those moods accordingly. The following table is designed to help identify elements you can add or subtract to engage the senses for experiencing the ch’i in your space.

"I never mentioned the Space Clearing to anyone: I wanted proof that it brought results. What a surprise. My clients asked me what I had done. The general consensus was that it felt more positive and comforting; believe me that’s what a therapist wants to hear. What I wasn’t prepared for was the resignation of a problem employee the day after the Space Clearing. Now I know what you mean about the positive pushing out the negative." Tom B.


"Thanks Sylvia! You have had a tremendous positive impact on my life and I'm so grateful!! Before you came into my life, I felt stuck with no sense of direction. Now, I just keep going and going like an energizer bunny Boy you weren't kidding about being in my "fire stage"-.LOL. It has been a whirlwind but wonderful....so many changes and things headed towards the right direction...living and loving life. You helped me create a wonderful energy throughout my home. I get compliments from everyone who visits." Marie B.
