Feng shui today

Feng shui today


Today, feng shui is practiced not only by the Chinese, but also 
by Westerners. However, with the passage of time and feng 
shui's popularization in the West, much of the knowledge 
behind it has been lost in translation, not paid proper attention 
to, frowned upon, or scorned.

Robert T. Carroll sums up what feng shui today has become:

"... feng shui has become an aspect of interior decorating in the
Western world and alleged masters of feng shui now hire 
themselves out for hefty sums to tell people such as Donald 
Trump which way his doors and other things should hang. 
Feng shui has also become another New Age "energy" scam 
with arrays of metaphysical products ... offered for sale to help 
you improve your health, maximize your potential, and guarantee 
fulfillment of some fortune cookie philosophy."[45]

Others have noted how, when feng shui is not applied properly, 
or rather, without common sense, it can even harm the environment, 
such as was the case of people planting "lucky bamboo" in 
ecosystems that could not handle them.[46] Still others are 
simply skeptical.

Nevertheless, even modern feng shui is not always looked at as 
a superstitious scam. Many people[who?] believe it is important 
and very helpful in living a prosperous and healthy life either 
avoiding or blocking negative energies that might otherwise have 
bad effects. Many of the higher-level forms of feng shui are not 
so easily practiced without either connections, or a certain amount 
of wealth because the hiring of an expert, the great altering of 
architecture or design, and the moving from place to place that 
is sometimes necessary requires a lot of money. Because of this, 
some people of the lower classes lose faith in feng shui, saying 
that it is only a game for the wealthy.[47] Others, however, 
practice less expensive forms of Feng Shui, including hanging 
special (but cheap) mirrors, forks, or woks in doorways to 
deflect negative energy.[48]

Even today feng shui is so important to some people[who?] that 
they use it for healing purposes, separate from western medical 
practice, in addition to using it to guide their businesses and 
create a peaceful atmosphere in their homes.[49] In 2005, even 
Disney acknowledged feng shui as an important part of Chinese 
culture by shifting the main gate to Hong Kong Disneyland by 
twelve degrees in their building plans, among many other actions 
suggested by the master planner of architecture and design at 
Walt Disney Imagineering, Wing Chao, in an effort to incorporate 
local culture into the theme park.
