How to bring feng shui elements into your home?

An ancient art and science developed over 3,000 years ago in China. It is a complex body of knowledge that reveals how to balance the energies of any given space to assure the health and good fortune for people inhabiting it.

Feng means Wind and Shui means Water. In China wind and water means good health and this is associated with good fortune. Chi means energy and the theory is that the land is alive and full of Chi. One concept of Feng Shui is the art of placing 5 Elements correctly in your home.

Candles... representing the sun and the sunlight that gives life to nature. Candlelight is believed to have the ability to destroy negative energy. A beautiful candle would become both a nice element of décor and warmth that clears space from any negativity.

Plants...  are universal Feng Shui cures. They make air fresher and fill space with positive Chi. Requires some special care and livens up any décor and environment.

Water... A fountain, the sound of trickling water from a small indoor water fountain relaxes and fills home with a calm and pleasant atmosphere. This may also attract wealth and prosperity into the house of its owner.

Incent sticks... Just like sounds and light, scents have a great influence onto people’s health. A new great scent brought into the home makes the atmosphere more pleasant and relaxing.

Music... the help of sound, improves the energy of the dwelling. You can choose traditional Chinese music, sounds of nature, or just anything slow and relaxing.

Mirrors... always performs two functions. The first is protecting you and your home from negative influences. Mirrors have an ability to absorb or send back the negative energy. The second of mirrors is that of clearing and energizing the Chi of the house. This function is also supported by mirrors’ ability to attract into life what they reflect.

As Asian culture becomes more popular in the United States, the ancient Chinese method of creating a harmonious environment, feng shui, is also gaining ground.

Feng shui seeks to promote prosperity, good health, and general well being by examining how energy, Chi flows through a particular room, house, building, or garden.
