Ru Yi is a Chinese scepter used in classical or traditional feng shui. Not many people in modern feng shui schools are familiar with the Ru Yi look or use. Literally translated, Ru Yi means “as you wish.” It has become a feng shui good luck and good fortune symbol.
To know whether you need a Ru Yi or not in the feng shui of your home, first decide if you like the look of the Ru Yi and then see if you feel connected to its meaning. The quality of the Ru Yi you want to buy is important, as some feng shui cures are made of cheap materials and are of questionable quality.
As with most ancient symbols, there are several different versions as to the origins of Ru Yi. Some believe Ru Yi originated from the Buddhist ceremonial scepter, some from a self-defense weapon and some believe it originated as a simple back scratcher. Whatever its origin, records show that in time Ru Yi became a symbol of power and authority.
The additional meaning of Ru Yi is that of good luck and protection, with a reputation for helping its owner find a clear way to the fulfillment of his path or destiny. Due to Ru Yi’s association with power, authority, and fulfillment of a destiny (yang quality of energy, often translated as “career” in today’s world), a Ru Yi is best used for good feng shui in the office, not at home.
