The Yin and Yang in Feng Shui by Laura Cerrano of Feng Shui Long Island

A quick over view of "Yin" and "Yang." What do they represent? They are the shady side of a mountain (yin) and the sunny side (yang). It is said they are collaborative and opposing forms that allow you to connect yourself to everything around you.  There is much more to the story of Yin and Yang but for know Ms. Cerrano will keep it simple.

Once you understand the characteristics of Yin and Yang, it is a great way to check and balance the energy of your home and within yourself. 

So what are the differences of Yin and Yang?

Laura, Your post is fascinating.  I had never heard an explanation of Yin and Yang before and the characteristics really seem to go with either the shady side or the sunny side respectively.  Most of my life I have tended to be more of a Yang personality but I am trying to create more balance in my life so I am paying a lot of attention to the Yin characteristics.  What about you?

Very interesting Laura.  I don't think that I'm either, LOL.  Is that bad?  (or maybe I'm just a combo)

Hey all! There are so many stories passed down with what Yin and Yang represent and how it came to be.  some say it's male and female, some say Yin and Yang come from the Universe...and also the different sides of the mountain. 

We are a mixture of both, but usally we tend to be more of one then the other.  I know I'm a mixture. I'd prob say I'm more Yang right now...but will be pullin in more Yin into my lifestyle :)

Hi girls! I'm definitely a Yang, I'm gonna try to add more Yin. I need to slow things down just a tad. I really enjoyed this post. I had not ever read up on Yin and Yang. I know my last home had me really down. It must have needed you two to rearrange it, and make the energy more welcoming. I was a different person living there and everyone noticed. Now in this house I am much happier, and again EVERYONE noticed right away. People could really benefit from your services! Take Care, Cheryl
