Feng Shui is the ancient practice of space arrangement designed to bring balance, harmony and meaning to one’s life Pronounced “fung shway”, it means “Wind and Water”, which represents the two main elements anciently considered when selecting a location for a kingdom: the chosen land should have a mountain to protect it from the wind, and it must have water to nourish the crops.
Western Feng Shui is centered on creating the proper energy flow throughout an environment without having to incorporate oriental elements, which may have no cultural significance to the individual. Feng Shui applied to the Western world focuses on enhancing awareness of symbolism in our surroundings and on bringing nature indoors,making us feel comfortable therefore attracting our life’s desires.

Feng Shui principles allow us to optimize the energy flow, so that it is not too strong, making us feel unstable and overwhelmed, nor too weak, making us feel stuck or down. Positive energy must gracefully meander like a stream or a gentle breeze, which is achieved by proper furniture and accessory placement, and the elimination of blockages. Clutter, broken items and negative energy are all considered obstacles for positive energy and must be removed by disposing, fixing and space clearing, respectively
Our surroundings are a reflection of ourselves, our thoughts, feelings, fears, and aspirations, both consciously and subconsciously .When you feel comfortable and connected with your environment, your aura, or personal energy, expands. As a result, you will naturally draw people and opportunities to you becoming a powerful magnet that will attract all your life’s desires. Balancing the Five elements (Earth, Metal, Water, Wood and Fire), in every space allows us to feel this comfort and connection, even at a subconscious level. By applying the Feng Shui Bagua, which is a chart that is overlaid on the property’s floor plan, one can relate the various areas of one’s life to the living space and make any necessary arrangements to promote balance and encourage synchronicity (being at the right place at the right time).
Evaluating the symbolism in our environments allows us to consciously make changes that will support our wishes. Based on the law of attraction, what we are around, what we see and think daily is what we will get. If we constantly think about positive, this is what we will attract, and vice versa. By ensuring that our surroundings reflect what we want in life, utilizing environmental affirmations, this is what we will come to us. By creating comforting and nurturing living or working spaces, following Feng Shui Principles, we can create significant improvements in our lives that will allow us to reach our goals by bringing us balance, harmony and tranquility
