What is Good Feng Shui?
“Feng Shui” is a Chinese term from an Ancient poem and is more than just a phrase: it’s a lifestyle! The practice of feng shui is to live in harmony with the natural world, even in our indoor environments. “Feng” means “wind” while “shui” translates to “water” in the Chinese language. In order to have good feng shui in your home or office, it’s important to incorporate the five elements (wood, fire, earth, water and metal). It’s a no-brainer that beautiful living things should be incorporated into a home or office in order to have good feng shui. This allows for a healthy balance of influences from the natural world.

What Flowers Should I Keep in my Home?
Depending on the color of an orchid, they can be very helpful in one’s home as they can promote passion, fertility and joy. Consult the feng shui color wheel for information on colors and their meanings. For example: blues are associated with the water element while bright, ostentatious colors correspond with fire.
