Feng Shui means Wind and Water - a reference to the Yin and Yang elements of the Universal Life Force - also called Qi, Chi, Prana, Ruach, Barakain, and a host of other names. This force meanders slowly when it is healthy and life bringing (positive energy). It drifts and wanders, flowing easily and bringing the breath of life. This force becomes unhealthy (negative energy) when it is either blocked and becomes stagnant or is forced into hard fast lanes when it becomes destructive. The practice of Feng Shui is the practice of arranging an environment that keeps the Life Force energy flowing and balanced so that we can live and thrive.
