I’ve just returned from Bath, England, a place I was interested to see since it seemed to me that it must have some wonderful Feng Shui.
I suspected this because Bath has been a popular spa going all the way back to AD 43, when the Romans harnessed its hot springs for bathing and celebrating the goddess of good health (“Aquae Sulis”.)
During the 18th century Bath saw the creation of some amazing and unique architecture, culminating in the Royal Crescent, whose welcoming design has been attracting the wealthiest of residents ever since.
Standing at the Crescent, I felt welcomed and enveloped by its warm presence.
Its outstretched semi-circular arms, beautiful yellow stone and symmetrical design add up to a feeling of peace and well-being.
The Crescent also has a large, open frontage facing south with a wonderful view of a river and hills in the distance.
In Feng Shui this situation is called a Ming Tang, or “bright hall,” whose function is to welcome positive Chi energy, giving it a chance to settle before it enters your home or office.
As soon as I got home I checked out the Ming Tang of my own entryway (!) clearing excess stuff and freshening up the artwork in the hallway.
Is there anything you can think of to do to “bring a little Bath” into your space?
