WHAT IS IT?
Feng Shui (pronounced Fung Shway) is first noted in written history over 3000 years ago but believed to have been practiced as far back as 5000 years. “Feng” means the wind, an invisible force and “Shui” means water, a visible force - like the wind before the rain in a storm.

The Tao (pronounced Dow) believed that there is a vital balance between Mind, Body, Soul, and our surroundings. They believe that we are ALL ONE.
Chi is considered life’s breath, the life force that connects our Spirit, Mind, Body, and Soul to that of Heaven and Earth. All is energy and must be in balance to exist in a harmonious state.
Feng Shui is the ancient art and practice of blending these principles together. It is a natural balance of using what exists in your environment to manifest your vision, energies and more.
THE 5 ELEMENTS
The universal pattern is in a set of fives. There are five senses (smell, touch, taste, sight, and hearing), five directions (North, South, East, West and Center), and five elements in Feng Shui. They are manifested by the universe and exist to reduce or enhance Chi Energy or “Life’s Breath” as it pertains to the environment in which you live. When in balance, these elements work to create a better environment for your life making it harmonious, healthy and abundant. Each element represents a different focus. Explore each element below!
