A Brief Historyhow & where did this start?
+ Qi (chi): An energy, life force. Relates to a buildings orientation, age, slope, vegetation, even soil quality. + Polarity: Expressed as Yin and Yang theory. + Bagua (baa gwa): A map in which each square, or Gua, relates to a section of your home and reveals where blessings are being energized, or are dwindling. + Professor Lin Yun: Feng Shui Grand Master who has translated Feng Shui into a westernized, user friendly version.

+ U or L Shaped Homes: Place a flowerbed, tables, statues, tree, an arbor, or windchimes in the missing corner of your life. If you have a multi-story home, the map overlays each story the same. + General Rules: Close drains, toilets, any openings. Cover trash. Make sure house is physically in good condition. Keep your home clutter free, use mirrors, crystal, and glass to help energy pass in corners.
+ In your bedroom: - Remove mirrors, morose artwork, pictures of family, items under the bed, objects that remind you of work, exercise equipment. - Make your bed accessible from at least two sides to attract a mate. Place your bed where you have a great view, not in line with the door. + In your home: - For security in a relationship, place the back of your sofa away from door. - Place pairs of objects to signify a successful partnership - two cranes, candles, two plants (no spiky plants), or even rubber ducks in the bathroom.

where would you keep money?
+ The top three determinants of life path are 1) fate, 2) luck, 3) environment, 4) philanthropy and 5) education and experience. The first powerful level that we really have access to in our lives to influence our future is working with the environment. + Energy exchange is a basic principle of life that can either inspire us or totally overwhelm us. + Paying attention to the details that comprise your life (i.e., your environment) is often the first step toward getting where you want to go. 10. Feng shui doesnt have memory. It tends to be both forgiving, in not being judgemental or remembering the error of your past ways, but also unforgiving, in that it is very literal. Be careful what you ask for, as it is likely you will get it. + Your observations and gut reaction will tell you where to start with your personal feng shui. By re-designing your environment, you can shift the exchange of energy and get your chi moving to create the life you want. Feng shui can help you make and create the changes you want in your life, right now.
