About Feng Shui
We offen hear the question: "What is Feng Shui?". The few that have heard of Feng Shui (pronounced fung shway) only think of its esoteric type that was very popular in the West in the 90ies, but little do they know what is actually behind the whole system of Feng Shui.
Feng Shui is a Chinese system of balancing our physical environment to promote harmony and a sense of well-being. Through very detailed observations of nature around us, the Chinese created various concepts to make use of what they learned. One is the system of Feng Shui.
It is applied from a home’s natural surroundings down to its furnishings and decor. It can start with finding a suitable property first and planning a whole estate down to modifying apartments and single rooms.
We believe that everything (and everyone) is affected by a life force we call energy, or "chi" (Chinese) / "ki" (Japanese). How we arrange objects, work with colours and materials will affect our lives and how we interact with our surroundings. Based on the three-fold idea that man (human kind) is in the center between heaven and earth (a concept called "San Cai"), we make our best efforts to harmonize both the heaven and earth energies and make the best use of their potentials for our life and us personally.
Feng Shui gives us the opportunity to work with the potentials of creating wealth and health and enhance our careers and relationships. We believe this is a great start... Why don't you start applying its methods today?
