Feng Shui literally means ‘wind and water’. Feng means the wind that carries the Chi, the invisible energy, the all-pervading life force that surrounds us. Shui is the water that meanders underneath the earth transporting Chi. Chi should flow effortlessly around physical structures to bring balance and harmony. Feng Shui is the art of placing buildings and objects so that the Chi is accentuated by the precise positioning of your house, furniture, decorations and other objects which then will bring positive vibrations and not negative ones that create discord and chaos. Feng Shui is also based on the interaction of Yin and Yang, the female and male forces along with Chinese astrology and the five elements, their colours and shapes.
Many Eastern cultures have for centuries used the art and science of Feng Shui in the planning of houses. Feng Shui has now become popular all over the world, because it offers simple remedies to correct the flaws in existing buildings and spaces. Anyone who learns the basic principles of Feng Shui can apply it to their spaces and surroundings to create positive and harmonious vibrations which then enhances their well-being and improves their lives.
