Feng Shui (pronounced fung shway) is the ancient Asian practice of object arrangement and space planning designed to bring balance, harmony and well-being to your environment. Its purpose is to enhance prosperity, creative, health and romance. Feng Shui fortifies a home with positive energy known as chi. The attainment of positive chi is both an art and a blessing to those who manifest that chi. The word "feng" means wind and "shui" means water, each one associated with a good harvest and ultimate good health or good fortune.

In traditional feng shui, we learn that each of the eight basic directions is associated with parts of the body, a family member, an element and more symbolism than we can explore in a single article.
When a direction within your home or work place has something deficient or distinguishing about it, you can consider who and what might be affected and often there is a correlation.
For example, the direction of North is associated with the kidneys, blood, circulation and ears. North is the water element and also symbolic of the middle son in a family unit. If someone had a missing north quadrant to their home's floor plan, we can see that one or more of the occupants might have kidney problems or another health issue connected with North.

A key principle of Feng Shui is that everything is connected with chi. Your thoughts, feelings, emotions are all influenced by the surrounding you live and work in. A dark, untidy bedroom creates a feeling of depression, fatigue and tiredness. To create and maintain a joyous, loving relationship you need to tidy up your bedroom and surroundings first and make space for the new relationship.
To improve your luck in love firstly you need to identify your power spots for love and romance and then Feng Shui those spots.

Feng Shui, pronounced as Fung Shway, is the Chinese art of directing your 'chi' into positive channels. Feng Shui is often called the 'art of placement' or the 'art of flow'. Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese practice and literally translates into 'wind' and 'water'. It aims to maximize the benefits generated from the movement of chi (the universal life force present in all things) through an environment.
While Feng Shui is commonly thought to be the arrangement of one's living and working environments to optimize social and financial success and wellbeing, it's not quite so simple. The arrangement of a wind chime, a crystal ball or an aquarium or mirror in a strategic location does not guarantee good fortune. Feng Shui is all about chi. Chi is the living essence of the Universe. It pervades every aspect of our lives - large or small and creates an opportunity everywhere it exists. These opportunities - good or bad - ultimately shape our lives and our destiny. Simply, if something does not have chi, it cannot exist!
