How does Feng Shui work?
There are 9 areas in our home and businesses that we can tap into to create powerful, positive results. Often overnight! Those areas are: Career & Opportunity, Knowledge, Family, Health, Wealth &Good Luck, Fame & Recognition, Partnership & Marriage, Children & Creativity, Helpful People& Travel. Each wall and corner in our environment represents one of these areas.
For example, if you want a new career or to advance your present one you would go to the area that represents Career and create positive energy by adding something, like a lush healthy plant, a fountain (moving water represents prosperity in Feng Shui) or a picture that inspires you. You may also need to take something away from the area, like clutter.

A few Feng Shui tips ---
The entry of your home or office should be open and inviting, trim away foliage that may be blocking the path of Chi.
Always position your bed, desk, and stove to have a clear view of the door.
The principal and upper executives' offices should be located in the command areas of the office, while giving employees and clients accessibility. Everyone will benefit because the entire office will feel as if it is one body, the sum of all the functions harmoniously working towards the main objective.
Bathroom doors should be kept shut, with toilet seats down, to prevent Chi, opportunity, wealth, and happiness from being flushed.
Never sleep with a beam over your bed or put a shelf over it or your desk. Your world could fall down on you at any moment.
Throw out dead flowers or plants as they have lost their vitality.
Avoid sharp pointed buildings, wall corners, furniture or accessories pointed directly at your house, bed or desk. It is reminiscent of a cutting knife-edge or a disapproving finger.
Make sure that all of the five traditional elements (fire, wood, metal, earth and water) are included in your design for energetic/emotional and decorative balance.
Where natural light is not readily available, especially in corridors and entry vestibules, make sure they are well illuminated.
Always use your intuition before making changes, consider first how it affects the rest of your decor. Do not just use traditional rules such as painting your front door red, it would cause disharmony if your home was peach or rose.
Remember your Chi it is your inner-personal development, desire, and love of life that will help maximize positive results.
