Every writer or aspiring author faces the challenge of producing coherent, legible material but what if the process could be made easier by using the ancient art of Feng Shui? It’s an intriguing question and one that’s been thoroughly explored by a talented author and passionate supporter of the art – M.C. Simon. But what exactly is Feng Shui?
If you’ve recently glanced through any of the high end home decoration and fashion magazines, you’ll have seen plenty of references to Feng Shui and it’s easy to mistake this mysterious tradition as little more than a modern fashion accessory for elite interior designers. But its origins are lost in the mists of the distant past, perhaps arising in the philosophical and spiritual hot house of classical India more than five thousand years ago. The concepts travelled with monks and scholars as far afield as China where the system was embraced and applied by generations of rulers and emperors. The world – and everything in it – was closely observed and interpreted as a constant flow of dynamic energies, each element contributing to the physical expression of the world before dissolving again into its original form. How could man strive to live in harmony with these currents of primordial energy? Was it possible to design cities, palaces, buildings and homes in accordance with these ancient principles? The answer evolved into the various systems which we know today under the general term ‘Feng Shui’ or Wind and Water, the essential elements for life.
An engineer by profession, the gifted Ms Simon has brought her experience as a writer to the extraordinary connection between Feng Shui and the environmental influences that can hinder or enhance an author’s literary efforts. Rather than focusing exclusively on the domain of the aspiring professional author, Ms Simon refers to every situation where words are committed to paper – or rather to a PC or laptop screen! So if you are obliged to communicate for any reason using the written form, the beautifully described techniques in this exquisite book could provide you with the creative energy not only to improve the quality of your writing but even make the finished product more successful – regardless of what you are trying to achieve. We all know that writing can sometimes be a major challenge so it’s intriguing to consider the potential benefits of employing those tried and tested Feng Shui principles to make writing – and life in general – a much more successful experience.
The range of possible Feng Shui influences is certainly very broad. Choosing an appropriate desk and chair, arranging the work space, orienting the furniture, choice of plants and decoration, use of colour schemes, keeping clear spaces – the list is comprehensive. And before you shrug and smile at the naivety of the practioners, it’s worth remembering that countless multi-national corporations have incorporated Feng Shui principles – at vast expense – in the design and layout of their headquarters, purely to enhance the chances of sustained success.
From a purely exploratory perspective, whether we fully grasp the principles or not, it’s enormous fun to experiment with the tips and advice laid out in this fascinating manual and, like the ancient observers who strove to make sense of the world, see if the changes suggested in the book make a measurable difference to your life.
Bearing in mind that the author is a successful and highly-trained engineer, it’s not surprising that to find a distinctive and highly practical edge to the descriptions of all the Feng Shui techniques included in the book. The arguments in favour of Feng Shui are gently persuasive and, if you’re obliged to spend any part of your day in front of a hot keyboard, hammering out words and looking for ways to make the process much easier, we’d recommend most highly a visit to this book. It’s a perfect opportunity to bring these ancient principles right into the heart of your technologically advanced, twenty-first century life. And we trust you’ll enjoy the experience!
