The Qilin is a mythical animal that symbolizes wisdom, prosperity, luck and long life. In Asia, it is also known by other names such as Kirin in Japan. Chi Lin is also called the dragon horse or the Chinese unicorn. Chi Lin is found throughout Asia, with slight variations but usually with a dragon's head, one or two horns, a deer or horse body, an oxtail and the scales of a carp. Sometimes the body is surrounded by fiery flames. Although he embodies all five elements, the magical being is most often related to fire.
It is said that Qilin is virtuous, kind and even vegetarian! The sacred animal is light and fast, never even touching its hooves on the earth so as not to inadvertently kill an insect. It is said that the solitary Qilin materializes as a positive omen when a great ruler or wise sage appears. It is also believed that the Qilin carries within him the writings of great wisdom. In the East as in the West, the legendary unicorn is a symbol of grace, purification and even the ability to heal poison.
The Qilin is known as one of the eight Taoist symbols. In Asian cultures, symbols have a lot of value, especially classic images like Qilin. These emblems are woven into the vast culture of the East. Many people around the world appreciate and use these Asian patterns for their beauty as well as their rich meaning. Of course, it is important to be respectful and curious about the culture from which these symbols come. Symbols are beyond artistic representations, as they come to tell a story and offer philosophical teachings and the wisdom of life. That said, feng shui should in no way include Asian art or imagery. There are many nuances and ways to apply the practice of feng shui, and the use of Chinese symbols is one of many.
Qilin can be found in various decorative objects such as jewelry, ceramics, wood and stone carvings, brass and bronze figurines, embroidery, etc. You can improve your Qilin if you combine it with other auspicious symbols. For example, you can have your Chi Lin perched on ancient Chinese coins and/or gold bars to invite wealth and abundance. In any case, when using an object as a symbolic feng shui remedy, be sure to take good care of it. It is certainly not good feng shui to neglect an adjustment object and let it become dirty, dusty or deteriorate.
Here are some feng shui apps for Chi Lin in your home and life:
A pair of Qilin flanking each side of a main entrance can be placed as a door protector to ward off any negative energy, such as challenges as well as harmful people and events.
Office or workspace
Qilin can bring overall professional success and good financial fortune when placed on the desk or in an office space. A single Qilin works very well for this kind of application. Don't forget to add Chinese coins for even more wealth and abundance with your work. An image of a Qilin is a thoughtful gift for anyone embarking on a new career or job.
Center of the house, the Tai Qi
The center of the house is called Tai Qi and is connected to all areas of your life and home. It is also related to your overall health and well-being. A Qilin placed in the center of your home can invite to all the beneficial aspects of the symbol, including joy, prosperity, good health and long life.
The bedroom is the part of the house most connected to its inhabitant. A Qilin placed in the master bedroom can help boost fertility, as well as create offspring of all kinds (such as projects, financial abundance, etc.).
