What is Feng Shui? 

Maybe you’ve heard about it, maybe you haven’t yet? Lately, it seems, lots of people are interested in Feng Shui. 

So, what is Feng Shui? (You might pronounce it FUNG SHWAY) Feng Shui means “Wind & Water” and is the ancient Chinese art of living in balance and harmony with your environment for enhanced health, wealth, and happiness. It is a holistic art of “energy management” and a tool for creating the exuberance in our lives. 

Dating back more than 4,000 years, Feng Shui is widely practiced in homes and businesses where its benefits are increasingly recognized and desired. Today’s Feng Shui takes ancient knowledge and experience and incorporates it into modern life. Good Feng Shui practices can foster good health, improve relationships, and attract prosperity. 

Feng Shui is universal in principle; it is the cosmic “Breath of Life”, the life-force energy. It helps create the harmonious, pleasurable, and supportive environments we are all in need of by aligning and balancing the elements of nature and natural Earth forces with our daily patterns of living and working. In this way, the energy surrounding you works for you and with you, rather than against you. 

Feng Shui principles suggest “Chi” energy pathways teaching about furnishings arrangement and object placement, as well as utilizing light, color, shape, sound, and fragrance to activate our intentions and achieve our goals. Feng Shui can also employ symbolic rituals and objects, often called cures, to improve and enhance the vital energy in your home and office. 

You might ask “What about my front door?”, or “Where is my Wealth Corner?”, or even “What about the bedroom?” Attracting positive energy is no accident, and can be applied to both home and business environments with great success. The structures we live and work in exert enormous influences on us every day. Many of the Feng Shui guidelines are pragmatic and make good common sense. “Cures” can be designed to utilize ordinary objects, unrecognizable to anyone else, yet imbued with your specific intentions and personal focus for welcome, positive, and lasting results. Feng Shui can show you how to join forces with your home or office so that you can thrive in your supportive environment.
