Feng Shui in the Bible (Crystals too)

Genesis 1:2

A core part of recognizing references to biblical feng shui is knowing that feng shui, literally translated from Chinese, means "Wind over Water". In Hebrew, Wind is ruach (the ch is pronounced gutteraly, by raising the tongue to the roof of the mouth and forcing air over it) which also means breath and spirit, as in the living spirit which resides in each of us. It is important to ask questions like, "What are they really saying there?" "What does that really mean?" and others which come to you. Doing that you will find so much more than a surface reading will be able to show. With that in mind, let's look at Genesis 1:2:

Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit (breath, wind) of God was hovering over the waters.

God was placing his Spirit (the same Hebrew word as for wind and breath) over the "surface of the deep" (water) to clear the earth, making it ready for creation. What comes in the beginning of the Bible is the foundation for all else it contains.

Genesis 7:24 to 8:3

Think the above is coincidence? Think again. Things didn't go exactly the way God wanted and along comes Noah. God commanded Noah to build the ark and preserve life as we know it while God flooded the earth.

The water prevailed upon the earth one hundred and fifty days. But God remembered Noah and all the beasts and all the cattle that were with him in the ark; and God caused a wind to pass over the earth, and the water subsided. Also the fountains of the deep and the floodgates of the sky were closed, and the rain from the sky was restrained; and the water receded steadily from the earth, and at the end of one hundred and fifty days the water decreased.

Once again God used the power of wind over water to cleanse the earth.

Leviticus 14: 49-53

Some would say the above two examples show God did feng shui, but he never gave his people permission or instructions. However the Bible has its own version of space clearing instructions to be done by people to remove or prevent the reappearance of unwanted forces. For example, in relation to houses, refer to Leviticus chapter 14: 49-53:

And he shall take to cleanse the house two birds, cedar-wood, scarlet, and hyssop. And he shall slaughter one of the birds in an earthen vase over running water. And he shall take the cedar-wood, and the hyssop, and the scarlet, and the living bird, and he shall dip them in the blood of the slaughtered bird, and in the running water, and sprinkle the house seven times. And he shall cleanse the house with the blood of the bird, and with the running water, and with the living bird, and with the cedar-wood, and with the scarlet. But he shall let go the living bird out of the city into the open field; so shall he make atonement for the house; and it shall be clean.

Having read this Biblical ceremony, some background on feng shui might help you make the connection. Some elements of feng shui (and space clearing in general) are for elevating energy, which is often done by using one of a number of substances along with sacred prayer in ceremony. Common substances used are rice (from the plant realm) and a certain very strong liqueur with a particular red mineral mixed in it. Red (crimson) is a very common color used in feng shui cures, as it is the color of blood, the thing that carries oxygen and other life-giving nutrients throughout the bodies of most living creatures, and represents chi, or life-force.  (Actual animal sacrifices are not used in modern feng shui.)

The instructions given for this Biblical ceremony echo the exterior chi adjustment techniques from the feng shui tradition. The bird, which soars with the wind, is sacrificed over running water: wind over water.

There are undoubtedly more references to feng shui in the bible plus the Koran and other sacred texts. If you know other passages (preferably in the original languages) or are into decoding the bible with any of different methods available it would be interesting to hear from you with your feng shui results.

Crystals Too!

The breastplate of the High Priest and the Tabernackle both had many types of crystals on them. The ancients were energy movers and weren't just doing this for biblical bling.
