Feng Shui - an ancient ecological method

2:54 PM
The power of nature does not have to be felt only in the open space, but it can also be present in front of your door. 

Feng shui as a deeply creative and intuitive art is based on exceptional sensitivity to nature. 

This propensity to nature is shown in two ideologies that build the name Feng Shui - the "wind of water".

Basically, these two elements shape the ultimate physical appearance of an appetizer.  

In practice, feng shui has two premises and two levels of empowerment. 


The first premise is that the human condition and its energy influence its environment in a good and bad sense. Another premise is that the state of the environment affects the person's internal state.

The first of four different aspects of Feng Sui practice is - landscape decoration with feng shui.

Landscape Feng Shui offers a system of techniques and knowledge that by studying and applying to the environment you can get a true insight into the quality of the energy of the place where you live.

All-encompassing energy (chi) is sometimes described as the cosmic breath or the vital principle of the sky and earth, time and space and, consequently, interrelated phenomena. Energy is in a constant cycle of movement and transformation through seasons and weather changes, soil irregularities, tides and oscillations, through changes in our bodies, emotions and thoughts.

There are three transformational phases in which energy dominantly carry a specific quality. They are called Sheng, Si and Sha.

Sheng Chi - the place possessed when you perceive it as fresh and bright, when animals are healthy, vegetation is diverse and lush, people are successful. You have Sheng Chi when you feel positive desire.

Si Chi - has a place that is plagued and devastated, if the land is exhausted and vegetation is poor, people are weak and volatile. You have Si when you're depressed and anxious.

Sha Chi - dominates when you are extremely angry. The place is radiant with this energy quality when you feel it strange and dangerous. It starts from the negative states of the soil both below and above the ground. Even under the floor is sometimes called "harmful radiation", and above the ground is most often called "secret arrows".

Awareness of the specific quality of energy that exudes our immediate environment opens the opportunity for us through our own engagement to create the conditions for transforming, calming, directing and moving slowly, turning and accumulating in front of the front door of the home.

All the activities we undertake to improve our immediate environment must result in such a composition that will ensure that energy always flickers and does not allow its stagnation.

Landscape feng shui can be practiced in two ways, more precisely there are two schools. The topological school of feng shui provides rough views on the position and shape of the garden - the topological properties of the garden, its position, the shape of the plot and possible water elements, while the compass school is based on precise orientation and complex mathematical calculations.

Common to both schools is to base their philosophy on the concept of complementarity, more commonly known as the Yin-Yang concept, then on the theory of five elements connected both in a productive and destructive cycle, and ultimately on the theory of trinity of happiness, Tien Ti Ren concept.

For Yin and Yang, it can be said above all that they represent two dual types of energy. 

While Yin is a passive or deadened form of energy, Yang represents a creative, driving energy. 

By practicing the feng shui, we are trying to bring them into the equilibrium whole in which they will be interwoven and complemented.

Viewed through the prism of the elements of the garden, water, flat or damp soil, shade and silence possess Yin energy. On the other hand, yang energy is present in every manifestation of life in the garden, in the growth of plants, in the joyous colors of flowers, then in the bright and sunny surfaces, as well as in the hilly ground.

It is here that the feng shui gets in its importance and swings, because it helps us to integrate these elements into a harmonious whole. 

As Yin and Yang Dynamic Energy are changing, depending on the time of day, or the age of the year. 

First of all, this means that the garden should not be too flat, but not too hilly, it should also be sunny, the best morning sun, but also have shady segments.

What is Ojas ? The energy of life in Ayurveda

8:06 AM

What is an Ojas and what does it represent?


Ojas is a fine, subtle, light energy that contributes to the body being healthy, vital, to bring happiness, well-being and pleasure to every person.

When a person is conscious, when person has consciousness about himself, the environment, the way of life, nutrition and behavior, when he is devoted to work on himself and creating love for himself, he is at a high level of ojas energy.


On the contrary, when a man is stressed, under the influence of negative emotions (anger, nervousness, jealousy, stiffness ), when he does not take care of his diet, his body and soul, then the ojas is very low and that affects the health of the immune system first and therefore the health of the whole organism.

The main residence of the Ojas is the heart.

How do you get an ojas?


Ojas is introduced into the body through a certain food that stimulates this energy in the body, and it is called sattvic food (these are all foods of plant origin, milk, ghee butter) because it activates the Satvva guna.

People who have well developed Ojas are cheerful, optimistic, have a healthy and great facial tone, red tongue, emotions are balanced, and they feel vivid and energetic.


Intense activities, lack of sleep and an unhurried lifestyle are factors that destroy the quality and quantity of the ojas in the body. It all decreases immunity and the appearance of illness is very expected.

How to degrade the Ojas?


The ojas is destroyed through entering harmful food and irregular lifestyle. 

Negative emotions (fear, anger, stress, and sorrow), hunger or excessive posture, too much sexual activity, and the job, destroying them and should be avoided.

Intense activities, lack of sleep and an unhurried lifestyle are factors that destroy the quality and quantity of the ojas in the body. It all decreases immunity and the appearance of illness is very expected.

Non-sattvic food, such as meat, processed foods, oil-based foods, heated foods and foods that are not freshly prepared, are the main triggers to destroy ojas energy in the whole body. 

The opposite of Ojas is Ama, which is considered to be the toxic residue in the cells that promote disease. It was created by consuming unsaturated foods and advocating destructive habits or emotions.

Can Essential oils deteriorate ?


Essential oils are natural vegetable oils obtained by the steam distillation process of plants. 

On sale, they come in a glass, dark colored pack, in the amount of 10ml and 30 ml. Essential oils are used in very small quantities, expressed in drops.

When we become the owner of an essential oil, we become aware that such oil requires special conditions of keeping and preservation. Although it is of natural origin, it cannot be said that its expiration date is unlimited, nor can it be deteriorated.


On the contrary, essential oils are like other vegetable oils are susceptible to decay, unless they are properly stored under certain conditions.

Characteristics of essential oils are that if there is a deterioration, this will not be reflected as rancidness, but the chemical reaction will take place at the level of the oil molecules, and hence the healing of the essential oil, which either loses its medicinal properties or gets toxic properties.

For this reason, it is important that the essential oil bottles which, as a rule, must be dark brown or dark blue are kept in a dark, dry place, away from heat, moisture and direct sunlight. In translation, do not put oil in the car, in the bag, in the bathroom, on the window shelf, in the kitchen next to the heat.

What is the expiry date of certain essential oils?


Most essential oils for proper storage have a shelf life of 2 years or even more.    Tea tree oil, Pine oil and Fir oil have a shelf life of 12 to 18 months.
