Feng Shui Bamboo Plant
Feng Shui bamboo plant is a way to describe bamboo plants that are being used for the art of Feng Shui. In this article I am going to help you understand what Feng Shui is and how to practically apply bamboo in its uses.
Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese practice of balancing the elements in order to attain peace and harmony within a dwelling.
It was used in the past for architectural purposes, such as laying out a cemetery or a home.
Feng Shui translates to wind-water, and it is supposed to use the laws of both heaven and earth.
This practice is used to provide a positive flow of qi, or ch’i, which is pronounced “chee.” Qi is another term used for the life force, or energy that is in everything.
The flow then brings balance to the person’s home and life. There are two tools that are used in the art of Feng Shui, the Compass, and the Ba-Gua, which is an octagonal grid that holds the symbols to the I Ching in it.
The Ba-Gua is used to help you figure out how things in your home are related through Feng Shui. If you learn about the Ba-Gua’s meanings, then you can have an aesthetically pleasing Feng Shui set up using indoor bamboo plants.
The lucky bamboo plant is a common Feng Shui bamboo plant because of many reasons.
For one, it is peaceful and strong. That is a very good quality to have growing within a home.
Also, it shows you how to be flexible to others needs.
It is also hollow on the inside which is meant to show you how to be open and receiving of other human beings.
Lucky bamboo is considered very lucky because it contains all of the five elements. The bamboo itself is wood.
The water the bamboo grows in represents the water element.
The earth element is the rocks that the bamboo uses to grow its roots in. Metal is represented by the pot it is in. And fire is shown by wrapping a red ribbon around the pot or plant itself.
You can go look at some pictures of bamboo and see what lucky bamboo really looks like. It is a very beautiful plant that brings peaceful and astute energy with it. You can choose from a wide array of lucky bamboo, ranging from three stalks to multiple stocks of bamboo, each number holds a significant meaning.
You can bring some balance to your home with a little help from Feng Shui. With a Feng Shui bamboo plant like lucky bamboo, you do not have to do too much work. You can clear a little bit of clutter out too. Feng Shui is all about the flow of the room, and a messy room will not suffice.
