Understanding Feng Shui 风水

Part 1 - Wind

From the Need Project

The Sun Makes the Wind Blow

The energy in wind comes from the sun. When the sun shines, some of its light reaches the earth’s surface. The earth near the equator receives more of the sun’s energy than the North and South Poles.

Comments: This refers to how the chart for Da Liu Ren is derived and makes it one of the top Metaphysics Art in the 三

Some parts of the earth absorb more solar energy than others. Some parts reflect more of the sun’s rays back into the air. Light-colored surfaces and water reflect more sunlight than dark surfaces. Snow and ice reflect sunlight, too.

Some types of land absorb more solar energy than others. Dark forests absorb sunlight, while light desert sands reflect it. Land areas usually absorb more energy than water in lakes and oceans.

When the earth’s surface absorbs the sun’s energy, it turns the light into heat. This heat on the earth’s surface warms the air above it. The air over the equator gets warmer than the surface air near the poles. The air over the desert gets warmer than the air in the mountains.

The air over the land usually gets warmer than the air over the water. As air warms, it expands. The warm air over the land is becomes less dense than the cooler air and rises into the atmosphere. Cooler, denser air nearby flows in to take its place. This moving air is what we call wind. It is caused by the uneven heating of the earth’s surface.

We Can Capture the Wind

Some places have more wind than others. Areas near the water usually have a lot of wind. Flat land and mountain passes are good places to catch the wind, too.

Comment:  The term popularly used by Feng Shui practitioners, 藏风聚水/. Qi travels on Wind and collected at the boundary of Water.
