Feng Shui translated means "wind and water" and refers to the energy patterns that flow in your living spaces.This Chinese philosophy is a design trend that uses good space planning, and elements of nature to enhance the positive energy in your environment.
Feng Shui is based on an interpretation of the natural world which enabled the Chinese to create efficient agricultural systems, and also the study of the movement of heavenly bodies in order to determine the passage of time. Over the centuries, the interpretation grew more complex and became removed from its original purpose. As its exponents spread out from China across the world, their beliefs altered to fit into local beliefs and customs and, inevitably, folklore and superstition grew up around them.
Fortunately, the ancient Chinese preserved the information in written form. In essence, most societies express or interpret in some way the knowledge contained in Feng Shui, but it has become absorbed into different disciplines. In China it underlies all aspects of life, from nutrition and medicine to exercise and the arts.
