Feng shui is a 5,000-year-old Chinese art of placement. It maintains that life is interwoven with the workings of nature. When we are in harmony with the universe, our well-being and good fortune increase. The principles of feng shui can be applied to all aspects of life, from the colors a person wears, to the arrangement of a single room, to city planning. It has become something of a catch phrase in the world of home improvement.
Feng Shui is the practice of living harmoniously within your surroundings. It is concerned with the placement of buildings and everything within them. Many could say that feng shui is just a fad. It came across from the east about a decade ago and became one of the hottest trends in home decorating. Guides on how to change your life through this lined the shelves of bookstores. Even Oprah Winfrey has extolled the virtues of the techniques on her show and in her magazine.
You can call it art, science, philosophy, psychological ecology or mere superstition but the Chinese practice of feng shui is surely gaining adherents in the West. Most who have applied these principles to their homes and offices vouch that it has promoted inner peace and overall success.
In its most pared-down form, feng shui involves uncluttering your life, removing things that are bad for you and letting both physical and metaphorical light and air in. Today, this is enjoying increasing popularity in America but not just as a decorating tool. In the grand American tradition of repackaging an age-old practice for marketing to the masses, image consultants have begun using the ancient philosophy to determine what clothes a person should wear to the color of his car.
