 Feng Shui Lighting


The ambient light in your home, both natural and artificial, has a direct influence on the circulation of chi. Poorly lit areas accumulate stagnant yin chi and become depleting, just as badly ventilated rooms do. Conversely overly bright spaces build excess yang chi and are discordant and lead to tension. The all important entrance needs to be well lit, preferably with lighter shades of colours on the walls that easily reflect light. The hallways, which function as energy conduits also need good lighting. Using just one central bright light in a room is poor fen shui. Lighting that smoothly changes in intensity throughout the room is more ideal, which can be achieved with accent lights, table lamps, down lights and floor lamps. Undulating light has a better feng shui dynamic, just as hilly landscapes do and supports the flow of chi.
Torchier floor lamps and sconces create attractive upward light gradients, that also reflect diffused light back into the room. Ideal for living rooms, dens and lounges. Also useful to soften shadows from overhead beams, which tend to concentrate chi and create stress and tension if you sit underneath them.
Soft, even light is more appropriate for the bedroom. Generally clear globes are too harsh and need to be used with a lamp shade or opaque lighting fixture, or favour diffused lighting globes. Fluorescent lights are on the harder side too and need diffusion. An exception to this would be high activity spaces like a rumpus room or a kitchen if you don’t eat meals there.
Dark corners are to be avoided, especially in low activity areas. The central area of your home responds well to good lighting. This is because light is related to the Fire element which nourishes the central Earth element. Avoid placing fountains in this location as it drains the all important Earth. They are more aptly suited to the wealth corner. Ideally ceramic lamps are an ideal choice, more so than wood or metal ones for the central home space. Stone and ceramic sculptures, jade sculptures and  ceramic pottery fit well here too. The grounding Earth element brings the most harmony and has the power to balance all the other elements * and is the easiest element to locate.

As the Earth element is a source of all the other elements, all colours are harmonious in the central space but earth tones are best. Splashes of red, orange and yellow colours are useful in this area, like a burnt orange lamp base or a red sculpture. Relaxing blues and cool pastel tones are more effective away from the homes central location, as is cool lighting. Avoid any light fixtures with sharp spikes or edges, especially if they point downwards –  these create a sha chi, the translation of this being poison arrows.
Sometimes external light entering a room can be too harsh and curtains and blinds are needed to pacify the incoming yang chi. Lighting and its manipulation is one of the simplest ways to uplift the ambience of a room and create a balanced chi.

* The ancient Chinese 5 element theory, along with the BaQua, forms the basis for applying Feng Shui. This 5 element theory is also utilised for the application of acupuncture healing and encapsulates the most advanced understanding of how chi energy interacts within the body and in an environment. The master point for balancing the body is named Tsu San Li, which is on the leg. This happens to be the Earth point on the Earth meridian and is used to harmonise all the elements.
