The principle of the Energy
Everything surrounding us is Energy. The Energy, which let mountains come into existence, which let flowers beam and look colourful, which holds the rivers in movement, which let exist whole universes and which let a bee fly. In China, this unique life power is called »Chi«.
Energy wants flow free. In the home Chi mainly comes in through the doors and the windows, and also leaves the same way. Chi should flow through the home like an river in the nature.
The opposite of Chi is »Sha-Energy«. Main generator of Sha-Energy are edges and long straight paths, e.g. roof-edges, roof ridges, streets, canals, pipes, tracks, bridges, long hallways.
To improve your Feng Shui you can use many different aids like lights, colours, wind chimes or selected pictures. But also through guiding of the energy flow you can improve it. Frequently areas are not connected to the energy flow. Removing of the furniture can help here. The better the energy is able to reach every part of the room the better the Chi is.
