Water, wood, fire, metal, and earth
Feng Shui, also known as “geomancy,” is an ancient Chinese spiritual discipline used to promote health, happiness and prosperity. It is a process of energy channeling and aligning positive energy, bringing alignment and boost energy in our “place of work and living”.
The five Feng Shui elements water, wood, fire, metal, and earth help balance the competing energies by negating and supporting each others energy, regardless if this is at your home, the office, or your vehicle. Indeed, Feng Shui is not limited to buildings and residences, but can be found everywhere, and can even be aligning positive energy at the park through a well balanced fountain.
The words Feng Shui literally mean ‘wind’ and ‘water’ and represent a lifestyle mainly concerned with understanding the relationships between nature and ourselves.
Accepting Chi as a ‘cosmic breath and energy’ will allow us to live peacefully, and in harmony within our environment. Living in balance ‘with’ rather than ‘against’ nature benefits both humans and the environment. This philosophy has become quite desirable, even in the Western world, and is spreading rapidly throughout many facets of life, including interior decorating.
Many people stressed by today’s hectic lifestyle are searching for ways to incorporate peace and harmony in their home. Through Feng Shui, they are able to create a balanced environment for them, friends and family, a place where positive energy can flow freely and fortune is at their side!
