What is Feng Shui?

Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese system of designing buildings and space arrangement according to special rules about the flow of energy, aimed at achieving harmony with the environment and landscapes. Feng Shui is basically an environmental science and its origins are simple. It is based on an interpretation of the natural world which enabled the Chinese to create efficient agricultural systems, and also the study of the movement of heavenly bodies in order to determine the passage of time.

As practiced today, Feng Shui gives us advice on how to create environments in which we feel comfortable and supported. Some of these environments are common sense. Others may not make sense until we understand that by recognizing problem areas in our lives and taking positive steps to improve them, we can connect the the energy of the spaces around us and bring about desired changes.

So as the Chinese say "First luck; second destiny; third Feng Shui; forth, virtues; fifth, education" What we do with out lives and how we behave towards others will play a part and education gives us the tools to make sense of the world. Feng Shui is just one part of the complete package.
