Since WAHM University is here to help you balance out your life I thought I would add an entry about Yin and Yang. When I built my house I was inspired by Feng Shui (which will be another topic for another day - but I will touch on a bit today). While doing the research, I learned about YIN YANG and I am going to share that with you.

Yin (feminine) has traditionally been associated with the Earth and our environment. Its qualities represent the winter, the cold, the dark, stillness, death and water. Tradition associates the Yin with the Tiger.

Yang (masculine) represents Heaven, infinity or the cosmos. It is the warm, bright, well lit, hot, active, moving and living side of life. Its principle is that of of birth and renewal, It is more active in summer and tradition associates it with the Dragon.

AS SHOWN ABOVE: The Yin Yang symbol is a reflection of the ebb and flow of energy. It illustrates darkness following light, yet each has a little of the other deep inside. In good times there are few challenges and in bad times there seems to be small miracles. Harmony between these two principles arises from the constant search for equilibrium between them.

The fundamental Principle of Yin Yang Balancing: Feng Shui is based on the principle of Yin and Yang. According to Chinese culture, everything in this universe has Yin (negative) and Yang (positive) qualities. Balance, harmony, consistent change, and the interdependency of all things are but a few of the deep meanings within this simple representation. The Yin Yang Principle dictates that for every positive, there is a negative. For every male, there is a female; For there are brightness and darkness, good and bad. Good Feng Shui is where the balance of Yin and Yang achieves harmony and the Chinese believe that everything has Qi (Chi) or cosmic energy. For example: A room with no windows, very little light and dark walls (YIN) needs more (YANG) bright pictures, furniture and more lighting to stimulate the CHI.
