    Harness the flow of Ch’i

    Have you ever walked into a room and immediately felt uncomfortable or tense? Perhaps you've come home after a long day to find your home chaotic and overwhelming. If so, you've experienced the power of Ch’i. In ancient Chinese philosophy, Ch’i is the life force that flows through all things – from a piece of furniture to your favorite photograph. In a cluttered, disorganized environment full of things, Ch’i flows in all directions. It feels overwhelming.

    Balancing, harnessing, and guiding the flow of Ch’i is the basis of Feng Shui, the Chinese art of placement.  

    Feng Shui, pronounced “fung shway”, has been practiced in China for over 3,000 years. Feng Shui translates to “wind and water” because early practitioners used it to locate home and village sites based on the natural flow of the elements. They assessed the Ch’i qualities of the land and then monitored construction to avoid disrupting this flow. In the West, most buildings don't align as naturally with the flow of Ch’i. 

    But when you learn to adapt the principles of Feng Shui, you can enhance the flow of Ch’i in any space – be it your home, your office, or even in a hotel room. 

    Before working with Ch’i, you need to understand three things about it. 

    Perhaps most importantly, Feng Shui recognizes that everything is alive. Feng Shui teaches you to respect this aliveness, utilizing each thing's Ch'i intentionally. 

    Second, Ch'i teaches you that everything is connected. Ch’i is a continuous flow of energy that moves through all things. This means that your energy affects your surroundings, and your surroundings affect your energy. 

    Ch'i is also constantly changing. Growth, movement, and change are part of its nature. For instance, when moving to a new place, you may instinctively want to toss things from your old home to “start fresh.” Feng Shui provides principles for evolving your spaces in a conscious way, going with the flow of Ch’i. 

    When you honor your home as connected, alive, and constantly changing, you realize that it can nourish and support you like any other relationship. Feng Shui provides the timeless wisdom to build a beautiful relationship with your surroundings.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll

    Einer der besten, bequemsten und sinnvollsten Apps die auf ein Handy gehören. Jeden morgen 15-20 Minuten für die eigene Weiterbildung/Entwicklung oder Wissen.

    Viele tolle Bücher, auf deren Kernaussagen reduziert- präzise und ansprechend zusammengefasst. Endlich habe ich das Gefühl, Zeit für Bücher zu finden, für die ich sonst keine Zeit habe.
