When I began studying Feng Shui over five years ago, I had no idea that there were many different schools of Feng Shui, each teaching very different concepts.  I encountered Master Hsu and his Blue Mountain Feng Shui Institute when he was a guest speaker at an Ikebana International meeting.  His message was so captivating that soon I was one of his students.

Dr. Hsu teaches Form School Feng Shui, the true Feng Shui whereby “Form defines energy”. It’s all about Qi, which means “living energy or life force“.  Form School uses no gadgets or gimmicks and separates theory from culture, superstition and folklore.  That is why it appeals to me.  Don’t get me wrong, like the Japanese frog trinket, I love cultural superstitions, numerology and folklore, but I now know that it is separate from Feng Shui.

In this age of the internet, there has been so much confusion that it’s very difficult to decipher all the information.  Since my heritage is Japanese and I cannot read or understand Chinese, I do not have the ability to read the old books on Feng Shui.  This means many of us in the West must rely on others.   Not only do we have to rely on those translating the books, but also to understand the history and circumstances of the time the books were written.  Just because a concept has been written, does not prove that it is legitimate.  As with many things in life, there are influences that can misguide the innocent and naive.  With my frustration of reading so many contradicting theories on Feng Shui, I kept asking Dr. Hsu for answers.  And the most amazing part is, he always had one!  All this pestering has led to a book!  I am happy to announce that Dr. Hsu and I are in the process of writing a book ,  Feng Shui:   Truths, Myths and Misconceptions that we hope to have published in the near future.  As the title denotes, it is to help those like myself, who are constantly searching for answers but can’t seem to find anything that makes sense to us.  It is so exciting for me to be learning about the wonders of Qi!

    How exciting to be starting a business! You are absolutely correct to associate the name and logo to the success of your business, because the form manifests the qi energy. My master does that type of advice and I will be contacting you very soon!
    warm regards,
