Feng Shui

What is feng shui? I thought it was the way the Chinese arranged their furniture, but there’s got to be more to it than that, right? That’s what I thought! So, I investigated! I jumped on Google and, it turns out, that feng shui is an ancient Chinese art and science based on Taoist principles. And when I say ancient, I mean way back to the 6th century BC. It’s all about the flow of energy, or ‘Chi’ as the Chinese call it.
Apparently, the flow of energy does have a lot to do with how you arrange things in any space. And this is important for the health and general wellbeing of the people who live and exist in that space.
Yin and Yang is an important aspect of feng shui. Yin is feminine and passive energy. Yang is masculine and hot. Feng Shui also considers the five elements; water, fire, earth, wood and metal. The points on the compass is another factor.
Feng shui can be used for many things, including the location, construction, and architectural designs of buildings, where furniture is placed and its style, color and composition, and the location of trees, plants, paths, and other outside features.
By creating a more pleasant, agreeable atmosphere, feng shui has been credited with improving family communication, restoring employee cooperation, and increasing the number of sales made by a shop or business.
The principles can be applied to any style of building or decorating, not just to Chinese or Asian styles.
