Using Salt Lamps in Feng Shui

Feng Shui, as written in Chinese calligraphyIn order to understand how our salt lamps can benefit you in ways besides health, let's touch on the ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui

The term "Feng Shui" translates from the Chinese language literally into "wind water". Things we cannot see are represented by wind while things we cannot grasp are symbolized with water. Feng Shui can help bring harmony to this aspect of our lives, the "unseen".

If you've read earlier pages in our site, you'll know that acording to current physics laws and ancient Chinese philosophy, everything in physical existence is made of energy. We call this energy "Chi", also literally translated means "breath". Good chi is as essential to a positive, healthy life as the breaths we take each moment.

We are talking about the essential lifeforce of everything. Through proper placement of feng shui enhancers, a beautiful Himalayan salt lamp for instance, a person can create a balanced and harmonious level of sheng chi within their surroundings, even around their surroundings, and find themselves with a happier, healthier, wealthier life full of positive energy and motivational force.

What is Chi?

Chi comes in two varieties - one good, one bad. The good type is Sheng Chi; the bad type is Sha Chi. The word Sheng translates as meaning "vital", "life"; while Sha becomes "evil" or "deadly". Many people are senstive to one or both forms of energy, and others are not aware of the presence either way.

Bedroom given attention to the Chinese art of Feng ShuiSheng Chi is held by beautiful items, places, even people. Beauty is pleasing to the eyes and adds comfort and sense of well-being. Of course, tastes vary and one person's beauty is another's fright but generally opinion gravitates toward the beautiful. Build a home in a beautiful, scenic environment and it will exude sheng chi. A clean, organized home that's well-ventilated with ample lighting is also bathing in the "vital" energy. The people living in this house are enjoying good Feng Shui. They have more ennergy in work and in play....they feel better physically and mentally because of the Sheng chi which they surround themselves with.

On the other side of the coin, we have Sha chi belonging to ugly and bad things of our world. Uncomfortable in their presence and unpleasant to the eyes, by nature things of this sort are shunned and unpleasant. Living in a house near a landfill or dumpsite or an unclean home ridden with pests and bugs is bad Feng Shui. People living in these surroundings inevitably find themselves with more illness and horrible circumstances.

For Skeptics of Salt Lamps in Feng Shui

Over the years, we've received numerous emails stating that "according to 'so-and-so' salt lamps are bad feng shui and shouldn't be used". Feng Shui is an art, not a science; much like origami and kung fu. As an art, it is up to the interpretation of the viewer rather than chiseled into stone by a self-proclaimed master. How can a salt lamp be considered bad practice of Feng Shui? Salt lamps are beautiful, completely natural, and benefit the indoor air we breathe...what makes them improper? Is it not counter-intuitive to say that something so natural and good for human wellbeing should not be used in an ancient art of placement in an effort to channel invisible energy through a building or home?

A salt lamp adds beauty, warmth, and glowing ambiance to a room. Adding relaxation and naturally cleaner indoor air to a home is indeed good Feng Shui.
