The system of Feng Shui is considered to govern spatial arrangement and orientation in relation to the flow of energy. The ancient art and science of Feng Shui was developed over 3,000 years ago in China, and from this body of knowledge one can reveal how to balance the energies of any given space to assure the health and good fortune for the people inhabiting it.
This Taoist vision is based on the understanding of nature, your surroundings, and particularly on the idea that the land is alive and filled with Chi (life force energy). Feng means wind and shui means water. In Chinese culture wind and water are associated with good health, and therefore, good feng shui came to mean good fortune.
To create the happy home, one simple way to get started is with the house basics, and that would be to clear out your clutter. The effect of clutter on your health can make you feel drained and overwhelmed. Get rid of everything you do not love! Clutter clearing can be a time and energy consuming process that may feel like therapy, but in the end it will help you lighten up the load, so to speak, and provide a boost of energy to your home as well. Good energy in the garden will always feel good and will draw you to spend time there. Colors and shapes of plants and trees, a water feature, all can strengthen, balance and bring beauty to your home. Delight your senses and see what can happen.

There are so many ways to use the principles of Feng Shui. By applying good design along with the understanding of nature, positive energy can circulate through your home and gardens with ease. Elements of nature, peace-inducing landscape design, high ceilings, open room concepts, rich colors to illuminate certain aspects of any home can create a harmonious energy flow.
