WHAT IS FENG SHUI ? Feng Shui, literally translated, means wind and water, the two natural forces that influence Chi. This ancient Chinese practice is a system that creates the most favorable placement for your living and working environment. Interacting the forces of heaven and earth, individuals can bring about harmonious order in their lives. Feng Shui, which was developed by scholars and evolved through thousands of years of observation and calculations, incorporates astronomy, geography, magnetic fields, environmental forces and physics. It is also known as Chinese Geomancy. Traditionally used by royalty, Feng Shui can bring about a harmonious life of improved health, wealth, and better relationships. WHAT IS YIN AND YANG ? Yin/Yang are the two opposite energies of our universe. Yin is cold and passive energy, Yang is hot and active. When too much of either Yin or Yang is experienced, our physical, emotional, or spiritual well-being could be affected. Maintaining balance between the two forces will result in balance and harmony, which is the key to good Feng Shui. HOW DOES FENG SHUI WORK ? Your environment (home or office) acts as a mirror image of you and your life's circumstances. Issues such as limited finances, relationship difficulties, or poor health can be linked to energy imbalances in your surroundings. Feng Shui practitioners can detect this energy and trace the route to help you locate those obstacles. Recommendations are then made for restoring harmony and balance to your space. WHAT IS CHI ? Feng Shui primarily places emphasis on energy flow rather than aesthetics. This flow, called Chi, is an energy force that exists around us and also within us. It immerses and surrounds all living things. The quality of that flow and how comfortably it moves through a space can shape all life situations regarding health, relationships, creativity, productivity, and prosperity. Chi plays a major role in Feng Shui by combining the Chi concept of time and space with the theory of Yin/Yang, and the five elements of fire, wood, water, metal, and earth. These reactions with each other have a direct impact on our daily lives. Feng Shui enables us to greatly improve our lives no matter what the situation. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FENG SHUI ? Feng Shui benefits are numerous as a key to living life to its fullest potential. These are some of the many desirable results enjoyed by those who have worked with Feng Shui in their lives: Enhanced wealth and abundance, self expression, balance, improved health, happiness, better relationships. WHAT ARE THE FIVE ELEMENTS ? The five physical elements are metal, water, wood, fire, and earth. All things are influenced by the interactions and movement of these five elements which are a manifestation of Chi. In Feng Shui, their interaction is used extensively to enhance positive Chi and to correct negative Chi. These principles of these five elements is the foundation for Feng Shui.
