Yin and Yang – feng shui lessons

Yin and Yang

Yin (black) and yang (white) are the harmonizing factors of the universe. They are opposing energies like day and night. Neither one is particularly negative nor positive; they are just forces that need to be in balance in one’s environment to achieve optimum peace and prosperity. Yin and yang are totally dependent upon one another and one does not exist without the other.
Yin and yang are typically portrayed inside a Tai Chi circle, which symbolizes wholeness. This symbol represents the harmonization of dualities within the universe.

In Feng Shui, the goal is to achieve a balance between the yin and yang elements. For example, if a backyard were too hilly (too much Yang) one would want to introduce a water fountain or some plants to break up the landscape. The introduction of the Yin element of water helps to balance both factors in the landscape.  The rule of thumb is that too much of the Yin element creates an isolation and stagnation; too much Yang creates chaos, agitation and destruction.
