Learning Feng Shui By Watching the 2018 South Korea Winter Olympics

How many of you watched the 2018 South Korea Winter Olympics opening ceremony on Friday, February 9th? I did!! The visuals and storytelling were amazing!  I was also pleasantly surprised with the beginning of the program because it highlighted four sacred celestial animals, which are used in Feng Shui:

  • Black Turtle
  • Blue-Green Dragon
  • White Tiger
  • Red Phoenix

Each one represents a direction, a season and a unique characteristic that can help enhance the energy of a home or building and the land it resides on. You will see these four celestial animals honored in China, Korea, Vietnam, and Japan. 

 

In regard to modern-day Feng Shui, consultants could prescribe the use of the animals through the display of imagery or statues within a persons home or on the land. 

 

Traditionally, the energy of the celestial animals could be connected through the observation of the land formation. The name of this Feng Shui method speaks for itself, “Form School.” In fact this approach to Feng Shui is still practiced today.

One example is with The Repulse Bay building in Hong Kong, China, dating back to the late 1980’s. A Feng Shui master was hired during the reconstruction phase and he suggested the building design needed to have a “dragon hole.” The specific intention for this suggestion was to allow the mystical dragons to freely pass through the building from their hilltop homes down to the water each day and then return again each night. To help bridge a cultural gap, take a look at each animal and its spiritual meaning. This helps provide insight into the importance of the recommended from a Feng Shui perceptive. 

 

Black Turtle: North: Winter, Strengthening cure

BlueGreen Dragon: East: Spring, Abundance and Prosperity

White Tiger: West: Fall, Protection, Dignity, and Help from others 

Red Phoenix: South: Summer, Inspiration and opens up opportunities
