Ancient cultures recognized that our life and destiny are closely interconnected with our environment. Our external surroundings, the style of our buildings, and the interior layout of our homes have a profound effect on us.
Feng Shui evolved in China over thousands of years and aims to create environments that are in harmony with their surroundings and ideally suited to their function and purpose. People who live and work in such an environment feel more energetic and creative, thereby increasing their potential for social and financial success.
Where less than ideal environments exist, occupants often experience life as a struggle. Feng Shui offers solutions to counteract elements of poor design and seeks to create balance in the environment and harmony in the lives of the occupants.
Shapes of rooms, placement of furniture, colours on the walls and images that surround us contribute greatly to the way we think and behave. The primary aim of Feng Shui is to ensure that the environment we have created is suited to the function and purpose of the space. A home benefits from a calm and peaceful atmosphere; whereas a business or an office requires a more stimulating energy. Disregard for some of the basic Feng Shui principles causes struggle in our lives.
