Is there such a thing of the Feng Shui of a business name? I follow Form School Feng Shui, which states, “Form defines qi-energy”. So, yes, there is Feng Shui of a business name; we analyze the sounds, meanings and forms which all carry information which we believe will manifest in some shape or form. Therefore, it’s so important to really think about your business name.
Master Hsu, just wrote his blog article on Google’s current problems in China, Google in China, which explains how the Chinese characters used in the name Google had chosen for China, manifested itself in the problems the business is experiencing today. It is most interesting so please have a look.
3 Frogs Name and Logo
To give you an example, I will use my interior design business name: 3 Frogs Design. So, the first question is, why 3 Frogs? My English husband is from Bath, and his cousin who is a vicar enjoys genealogy. Thanks to his research, we found that one of the ancestors had a very unusual coat of arms with 3 frogs. I am of Japanese ancestry, and in Japan our coat of arms is a family crest or “mon” in Japanese. Each “mon” symbol usually represents the family name’s “kanji” (Chinese character), or maybe the family profession. Many of those symbols were plants, flowers, tools or reptiles. Another point is that we have 3 sons, so the number 3 has meaning to us. Finally, frog in Japanese has a homonym to return (“Kaeru” in both cases).
I wrote a blog about that so you can link to it here. At the end, when we combined all of this together, 3 Frogs had a lot of meaning for my husband and me, so that is how we came to that name. It resonates with our family and we believe that whatever energy we put into our work will return.
So, remember that naming anything, regardless if it is a business, baby, pet or toy, it will manifest that energy. We must make a conscious effort to make sure what our intentions are so we will have the desired result. Names that resonate with your intentions have good qi-energy.
