Bring in the blessings with Tibetan Prayer Flags

For all of those who have northeast sectors missing from their houses, or a beautiful garden in their north east sector - think about hanging Tibetan prayer flags. Filled with deep spiritual energy, the prayer flags have their roots in one of the oldest religions of Tibet called Bon, and have been introduced to a wider feng shui use in the West by the practitioners of the Black Sect Tibetan Tantric Buddhist School of Feng Shui.

Traditionally, the prayer flags are used in outdoor places with powerful energy such as the areas around monasteries, in the mountains or other sacred sites; the flags have words (prayers) and images of deities on them. Since the wind, energy, or Chi (universal energy/life force) is believed to carry those prayers far and wide, as well as because the energy is always most powerful in natural versus man-made surroundings, the prayer flags are not used indoors.  Tibetan prayer flags are bright and beautiful, but their colours aren't just for show. Each hue signifies an element — and the flags are always arranged in a specific order, from left to right: blue, white, red, green, yellow. Blue represents the sky, white represents the air, red symbolises fire, green symbolises water, and yellow symbolises earth. All five colours together signify balance.
