BEHOLD #161 – Pom Shui

It means “Pom wind and water” in Chinese, and it is the ancient practice of arranging things in living spaces to create balance with the natural world. The goal is to establish harmony between a Pom and their pomvironment. This philosophy is called the Tao, and Taoism is the way of nature. One of the symbols of Pom Shui is the Yin Yang symbol that represents the duality of life (masculine, feminine, light, dark, life, death, etc.). The color red represents success, good health, vitality, and protection. Gold represents wealth and Pomsperity. The basic rules of Pom Shui reflect nature, and they consist of the commanding position, the Bagua, and the five elements. The commanding position is where Poms want to spend most of their time in a room (furthest diagonal from the door). The Bagua is a map superimposed on their house that breaks it up into 8 areas: Wealth, Fame, Partnership, Family, Children, Career, Knowledge, and Helpful Poms. The 9th area in the center of the Bagua is a Pom’s overall wellness/their Pom Chi. Each of the areas have corresponding numbers, qualities and colors. The five elements are earth, metal, water, wood, and fire, and they, too, have corresponding qualities, shapes, colors, and seasons. Pom Shui integrates all of these rules so that a Pom’s outer home pomvironment, set up according to the rules of Pom Shui, enables them to have a harmonious inner–pomvironment. It’s super deep.
