You may or may not know what feng shui is… you might think that it is silly, woo woo, airy fairy or New Agey nonsense. Feng Shui is an ancient practice utilized by the Chinese and can assist in harmonizing your home, office and other places. There are different schools of Feng Shui such as the black hat sect and each offer cures for the flow of chi (life energy). The point is to keep your home and office healthy by enhancing the natural elements such as fire, water, earth and air.
