Feng Shui and the Art of Pavers
Everyone aspires to create a living environment that is beautiful, functional and conducive to socialization with family, friends, business associates and neighbors. Feng Shui takes the approach that your home affects your material comfort, physical and mental health, relationships and worldly success. Feng Shui strongly encourages the use of concrete pavers, paving stones and patio bricks in walkways, patio sitting areas, driveways and anywhere else where concrete pavers are commonly used. As Feng Shui highly encourages incorporation of all earth elements, another Feng Shui-friendly usage of pavers and paving stones is in the creation of ponds, fountains and fire pits.
From a Feng Shui perspective, incorporating pavers, paving stones and patio bricks into your outdoor environment encourages relationships of long duration and a facilitated flow of opportunities.
If you are not familiar with Feng Shui, this ancient Chinese art and philosophy specifies how specific materials — such as stone, pavers and other earth elements — and the placement of objects within your interior and exterior living environment affect the energy flow of your home and how this influences your personal energy flow, called Chi.
Chi affects how you think and act and ultimately influences your personal and professional life. This chi is always active, influenced by your environment irrespective of your awareness of it. Pavers and other stone elements positively affect Chi.
Feng Shui is not about implementing a quick fix like plopping down a few pavers in a garden to gain overnight success. It is more about integrating intent and consciousness to create a living environment that supports your values, life purpose and ambitions. To incorporate elements of Feng Shui by means of adding pavers, stone work or other masonry enhancements to your home or office is easier than you think. We have designed a handy tool to help calculate the basic cost of adding pavers, paving stones and patio bricks.
Feng Shui is the simple interaction of humans and their environments. Taken a step further, Feng Shui enables you to influence these interacting energies to achieve specific life improvements. This influence is achieved by positioning or designing your surroundings in harmony with principles of natural energy flow harmonizing your life.
Addition of a stone or paver pond to incorporate the water element is often encouraged in Feng Shui. It is not about adding more, but about adding or subtracting items to optimize the energy in your environment. Undoubtedly, pavers — stepping stones — are an integral element in bringing balance, comfort, and harmony into your environment in a manner that is difficult to achieve by any other means.
Feng Shui is rooted in a holistic worldview. It sees all things and creatures as part of a natural order, a vast environment that is alive and in flux, ever moving and changing. Each thing in this natural order is equally alive and has an energetic value or component. So everything — plants, animals, people, and things — exists in a vast landscape that swirls with vital energy. The same energy that flows through the world flows through you as well. In fact, according to this view, your essence — the part of you that makes you alive, unique, and vital — is this energy. And your body is the vehicle or environment in which this essence flows.
In Feng Shui, there are many kinds of stones that represent different energy. Some of healing powers, some are wealth enhancers and some are for love. When creating your outdoor living space, driveway, walkway or patio, it is relatively easy to incorporate usage of different kind of stones into your paver design, as suggested by Feng Shui.
While adding concrete pavers, paving stones or patio bricks to you environment is a Feng Shui boost, use of particular stones could further enhance your home or office environment on an energetic level, they could easily be incorporated at a reasonable cost. Here is a handy tool in factoring the cost of incorporating pavers into your environment. (check pavers prices)
