Feng Shui had become popular in the UK in the early 90s.  Many have started looking into it in view of applying to homes, gardens, offices and businesses.

Feng Shui literally means wind and water.  This allows for the flow of chi, the essential energy of Feng Shui.

Though Feng Shui is Chinese,  it is not purely from China.  It actually originated and can be traced back from the ancient world of Egypt, India and then China.

Feng Shui was there in the making of the Egyptian pyramids, the great Aztec temples and even UK’s Stonehenge.

It was in China that the core  principle of Feng Shui was carefully formulated and established for the modern world.

It says that the careful arrangement of furnitures can have a telling effect on your life may sound a bit like a mambo jumbo and yet when you think about it,  it does make a lot of sense.  A house carefully furnished where everything is in it right place, is airy, bright and with an organised scatter of green aerating houseplants, where the size of furnitures are proportional to the size of each room, then it can only be good for your health, happiness, peace and contentment.

Plants carefully placed in areas that hide or showcase  a particular niche can only be great for the aesthetic of your surrounding.  There are also plants that aeriate the living space.  They give off plentiful of oxygen while taking in the carbon dioxide off the immediate area.

Businesses have also adopted Feng shui; business owners are hiring Feng Shui experts to oversee arrangement of the work place in order to  maximise the performance and output from employees.

I remember an employer choosing to move our offices in a location that overlook a crematorium .  He said that he read somewhere that cemetery is a place of peace and quiet.  It has a great chi.

Well he did make a lot of money and sold the business  afterwards and we had to move on, great for him, not so great for us. 🙁
