介绍

When you hear the words “Feng Shui,” what comes to mind first? Some ancient Chinese magic that can change your life drastically? Changing your furniture layout based on the directions of a compass? Cleaning, organizing, and decluttering your home? Possibly you have no idea at all. Feng Shui, a form of ancient Chinese wisdom, may be misunderstood as superstition by people today, but I consider Feng Shui to be a practical and useful art, based on intuition, common sense, logic, and psychological theory, rather than superstition or fortune telling. It is true, however, that Feng Shui is not a science. I am not here to promise that it will necessarily change your life drastically. But I am introducing Feng Shui to you in hopes that its philosophy could benefit you if you are willing to improve your living environment and lifestyle.

当你听到 "风水 "这个词时,你首先想到的是什么?一些古老的中国魔法,可以极大地改变你的生活?根据罗盘的方向来改变你的家具布局?清理、组织和整顿你的家?可能你根本就不知道。风水,中国古代智慧的一种形式,可能被今天的人们误解为迷信,但我认为风水是一种实用和有用的艺术,基于直觉、常识、逻辑和心理学理论,而不是迷信或算命。然而,风水确实不是一门科学。我在这里不是要承诺它一定会大大改变你的生活。但我向你介绍风水,是希望如果你愿意改善你的生活环境和生活方式,它的哲学可以使你受益。

Feng Shui is a holistic approach and technique that can open us up to our better being, by balancing “Chi” (energy) between people and the environment. Its theories of Yin and Yang and the Five Elements are used in acupuncture as well, as both are used in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

风水是一种全面的方法和技术,通过平衡人与环境之间的 "气"(能量),可以使我们的生活更美好。它的阴阳和五行理论也被用于针灸,因为两者都被用于传统中医。

In chapter 1, you will find out exactly what Feng Shui is. Chapter 2 will delve into Chi energy, how it flows in a space and its cycles, Taoism, Yin Yang Theory, and the Five Elements, which are the basic principles of Feng Shui. In chapter 3, I will provide you with a bit of history of Feng Shui. I will introduce different styles of Feng Shui, from Classic Chinese Feng Shui to a contemporary Feng Shui (Western style, Black Sect Tantric Buddhist Feng Shui, aka BTB), and Chinese astrology in chapter 4. In chapter 5, I will show the basic way to analyze your environment from a Feng Shui perspective. In chapter 6, I will introduce Feng Shui basic placement theory. Then, in chapter 7, you will learn directions, colors, and furniture placement, based on “Bagua”—one of Feng Shui’s tools. Chapter 8 will focus on how to implement basic Feng Shui room by room: the entryway, the living room, the bedroom, the kitchen, and the bathroom. In chapter 9, I will talk about how you can apply Feng Shui basics in relationships with your family members, partners, friends, bosses, colleagues, and whomever you interact with in your community, to promote living in harmony. If you want to learn Feng Shui’s basic principles and tips quickly, this is the book for you!

在第一章中,你会发现风水到底是什么。第二章将深入探讨气的能量,它如何在空间中流动及其周期,道教,阴阳理论和五行,这些都是风水的基本原则。在第三章,我将为你提供一些风水的历史。在第四章中,我将介绍不同风格的风水,从中国古典风水到当代风水(西方风格,黑教密宗佛教风水,又称BTB),以及中国占星术。在第五章中,我将展示从风水角度分析环境的基本方法。在第六章中,我将介绍风水的基本安置理论。然后,在第七章中,你将根据 "八卦"--风水的工具之一,学习方向、颜色和家具摆放。第八章将重点介绍如何在各个房间实施基本的风水:入口处、客厅、卧室、厨房和浴室。在第九章中,我将谈论如何在与家庭成员、合作伙伴、朋友、老板、同事以及社区中与之交往的任何人的关系中应用风水基本知识,以促进和谐生活。如果你想快速学习风水的基本原则和技巧,这本书就是为你准备的!

Home—the space you live in—reflects who you are, how you view things, how you interact with others, and how you present yourself to the world. Similarly, your working environment (often in an office building or a post-COVID home office) may affect your emotions and thoughts, productivity, creativity, efficiency, and possibly your income. Further, these elements may affect your health as well. Learned ancient Chinese people knew this, so they used Feng Shui experts to help them and their family receive good fortune that could last for generations.

家--你居住的空间--反映了你是谁,你如何看待事物,你如何与他人互动,以及你如何向世界展示自己。同样,你的工作环境(通常在办公楼或后COVID家庭办公室)可能会影响你的情绪和想法、生产力、创造力、效率,以及可能的收入。此外,这些因素也可能影响你的健康。学识渊博的中国古人知道这一点,所以他们利用风水专家来帮助他们和他们的家人获得可以持续几代人的好运气。

When I first learned Feng Shui, I was a teenager in Japan, where I was born and raised. I assume that most of the readers of this book are Westerners in English-speaking countries, whose basic culture is different from mine. Therefore, there may be a slight gap between what you think you know about Feng Shui and what I thought about Feng Shui back then.

当我第一次学习风水时,我是在日本的一个青少年,我在那里出生和长大。我想,这本书的大部分读者都是英语国家的西方人,他们的基本文化与我不同。因此,在你认为自己对风水的了解和我当时对风水的看法之间可能会有一点差距。

As a teenager, I enjoyed reading books about Feng Shui and trying out the ideas in my own home. My family used to make fun of me because they did not believe in Feng Shui. Back then, Feng Shui was very big in Japan, and there was a famous Feng Shui master who started a Feng Shui trend in the 1990s. He published a lot of books and he appeared on many TV shows and in many magazines. When he said, “If you want financial luck, put some yellow items in the western part of your house,” I (and everybody else) bought something yellow and put it in the western part of our homes. When he said, “If you want to get the right information at the right time, put audio equipment and a TV set in the eastern part of your house,” everybody moved their audio equipment and TVs to the eastern side of their homes. I did as well. Even though I was not sure if it was truly effective, I followed his guidance and placed items with certain colors and shapes in certain areas of my house for certain purposes.

在十几岁的时候,我喜欢阅读有关风水的书籍,并在自己的家里尝试这些想法。我的家人经常取笑我,因为他们不相信风水。那时,风水在日本非常流行,有一位著名的风水大师在1990年代掀起了一股风水潮流。他出版了很多书,他出现在许多电视节目和许多杂志上。当他说,"如果你想获得财运,在你房子的西部放一些黄色的东西",我(和其他人)就买了一些黄色的东西,放在我们家的西部。当他说,"如果你想在正确的时间获得正确的信息,把音频设备和电视机放在你房子的东部",每个人都把他们的音频设备和电视机搬到他们家的东部。我也是这样做的。尽管我不确定这是否真的有效,但我还是按照他的指导,把带有某种颜色和形状的物品放在家里的某些地方,以达到某种目的。

But as I grew up, I started wondering . . . “Is this really what Feng Shui is supposed to teach us?” Because if everybody is putting yellow items on the western side of their home for wealth, everybody should become wealthy. Even as a young adult, I already knew life was not that easy.

但随着我的成长,我开始怀疑......。"这真的是风水学应该教给我们的东西吗?" 因为如果每个人都把黄色的物品放在他们家的西边,以获得财富,那么每个人都应该成为富人。即使作为一个年轻的成年人,我已经知道生活并不那么容易。

Before leaving Japan for New York in 2008, I took a Feng Shui Interior Coordinator course and obtained a certification. What I learned from the teacher was not exactly the same as what I had learned about Feng Shui from books before. It was more detailed and deeper than I thought, and many things now made more sense to me. I learned that Feng Shui is not only about colors, shapes, and directions, but that it is a technique that teaches us how to focus on our intentions and show them to the Universe clearly so that it can help us reach our goals.

在2008年离开日本前往纽约之前,我参加了一个风水室内协调员课程,并获得了证书。我从老师那里学到的东西与我之前从书本上学到的风水知识不完全一样。它比我想象的更详细、更深入,许多事情现在对我来说更有意义了。我了解到,风水不仅是关于颜色、形状和方向,而且是一种技术,教我们如何专注于我们的意图,并将其清楚地展示给宇宙,以便它能帮助我们实现目标。

It took me almost eleven years for me to start working as a professional Feng Shui interior design consultant in New York City after I studied Feng Shui in Japan. I worked at different jobs in various fields, but I must tell you that being a Feng Shui interior design consultant is the most exciting and fulfilling job of my life. I am thrilled to introduce you to the basics of Feng Shui through this book, and I hope that it will stir your interest in Feng Shui so that you start using it in your home on a daily basis, much as you may exercise or meditate every day.

我在日本学习风水后,花了将近11年时间才开始在纽约市做专业的风水室内设计顾问。我在不同的领域从事过不同的工作,但我必须告诉你,做风水室内设计顾问是我一生中最激动人心和最充实的工作。我很高兴通过这本书向你介绍风水的基本知识,我希望这本书能激起你对风水的兴趣,使你开始每天在家里使用风水,就像你每天锻炼或打坐一样。

Since this book is an introduction to Feng Shui, the information I share here is very basic and general. Not everything I discuss will apply to you, your home, or your situation. Each of us is different, just as each home is different. Sometimes, Feng Shui rules need to be modified, based on your own personal situation, your family situation, or your home’s structure. A Feng Shui remedy that you found on the internet may not work for you and your home. I cannot emphasize enough that a proper Feng Shui adjustment or treatment should be something that is personal and customized. I highly recommend that you consult with a professional Feng Shui expert if you are seeking to apply a Feng Shui treatment for you and your home in a more precise way.

由于这本书是对风水的介绍,我在这里分享的信息是非常基本和一般的。并非我讨论的所有内容都适用于你,你的家,或你的情况。我们每个人都是不同的,就像每个家庭都是不同的。有时,风水规则需要修改,基于你自己的个人情况,你的家庭情况,或你的家的结构。你在互联网上找到的风水补救措施可能不适合你和你的家。我不能不强调,适当的风水调整或治疗应该是个人和定制的。我强烈建议你向专业的风水专家咨询,如果你想以更精确的方式为你和你的家庭应用风水治疗。

I do not suggest that Feng Shui can cure your health problems, make you wealthy, or bring you your future life partner. What I do suggest, however, is that Feng Shui can be used as a tool to help you to focus your efforts and commitment to help improve your life.

我不建议风水可以治愈你的健康问题,使你富有,或给你带来你未来的生活伴侣。然而,我所建议的是,风水可以作为一种工具,帮助你集中精力和承诺,帮助改善你的生活。

I hope A Little Bit of Feng Shui will give you an opportunity to review your living and working environment, your lifestyle, and your relationships so that you may make adjustments here and there to keep them in harmony. Are you ready to begin the Feng Shui lifestyle?

我希望《风水一点通》能给你一个机会,审查你的生活和工作环境,你的生活方式,以及你的人际关系,以便你可以在这里和那里做出调整,使它们保持和谐。你准备好开始风水生活了吗?
