In Chinese, “feng” means wind and “shui” means water. To the Chinese, wind and water are essential elements that support survival, but they also represent Earth energy. Years ago, Feng Shui masters used to follow the rivers through the mountains to study “chi” which is an abstract, ancient Chinese science and part of the Earth’s energy. The belief is that wind and water carry chi, and when it is good, your house is favorable, but when chi is bad, many hardships ensue.
Feng Shui Basics
Feng Shui is essentially the study of chi energy and how it if affects our environment and other aspects of life including health, finances, career and well-being. Chi flows through our bodies, our homes, and the atmosphere around us. When chi is in harmony with the environment around you, then you are considered to have a good Feng Shui house. However, chi that is not in harmony could mean potential trouble in your personal and professional life.
