What is feng shui?


Feng shui is a Chinese philosophy which tries to create harmony between the layout of a room and nature. The Chinese words ‘feng’ and ‘shui’ translate into the English words ‘wind’ and ‘water’ which highlights how human life is seen as connected to nature and so our rooms, especially the bedroom which we’re going to focus on today should be in harmony with it.


What are some examples of feng shui?


One great example of the feng shui is the Commanding Position. This is a spot in your room the furthest from the door and not opposite it (so, diagonal to it). This is where you should place your bed and desk because pieces of furniture are symbolic of your health and wealth.


What are the advantages/ practical positives of applying feng shui?


By taking control of our living quarters and remodeling to suit our tastes, feng shui is a flexible principle that encourages well being and happiness.
