What Is Feng Shui?

The practice of Feng Shui dates back to ancient China. The term “Feng Shui” translates from Chinese to “Wind Water.” As Mind Body Green explains, “Without air and water we parish. When both wind and water are balanced and flowing, nature is in harmony.” It utilizes the elements to create a balanced energy in a space. When used properly, it can improve sleep and create peace in the household.

Including elements in a room allows the person in the room to become more in-tune with nature and become more self-aware. Feng Shui has a few different practices and schools of thought, but they all share similar themes:

  • Traditional Feng Shui: The oldest form of Feng Shui. This takes into account compass directions, and natural elements to determine how to create the best relationship to your environment.
  • Black Hat: A western adaption of the traditional practice. Focuses on engaging the “nine energies” that are within every room.
  • Modern Feng Shui: Also known as Intuitive Feng Shui. This practice is based on utilizing color and your own intuition to create the best space for success.

Whatever practice you choose, you can expect to see health benefits such as sleep and stress relief as you rearrange your space for positive energy.
