Feng Shui is the practice of bringing harmony and peace into your life by the way you arrange furniture and other items in your house, office and any other space you are in. Feng Shui is pronounced as “Fung Shway” and has been used since ancient times as a way of helping people live better lives by bringing them harmony and balance.
By having furniture and other things a certain way in your personal space you will be able to let the Chi (positive energy) flow naturally. But what does Chi and feng shui English mean?
When the Chi flows naturally in your home and other places, you will notice that your life has better quality to it and things seem to run smoother. It is thought that in order to maintain good Chi flow in the world, certain places that are not meant for human inhabitants should be left alone and in their natural state. You can find tons of books, magazines, websites and even television shows that help you learn how to Feng Shui your own space.
There are many things involved in Feng Shui, not just moving furniture and using colors of the elements. Feng Shui has to do with everything in your life, which way you face to work and even things like where you want to be buried can be and are affected by Feng Shui. For many people Feng Shui just means feeling comfortable in your own space so little things can help improve the Chi flow in you home, office and even the car. It’s a wonder how anyone can live life without using Feng Shui.
Ever hear the saying, “Life is what you make it”? Well in the Feng shui world this is true. By using elements, objects and placement techniques you can enhance all the areas of your life that you need to and tone down the areas that seem to be over taking everything else.
