Feng Shui Basics

We can't see it, but energy is constantly moving through our rooms, our world. Allow it to flow in a harmonious way.

Have you ever wondered why some places make you feel tense, while other places make you feel more relaxed or energized? Feng Shui (pronounced fung schwee), which means "wind and water," is the Chinese practice of using and balancing energy in all aspects of life.

Kartar Diamond, a certified consultant and instructor from the American Feng Shui Institute, explains some basic principles for creating harmony in your home.

* View each room separately: What works in one room might not work in another.

* Avoid extremes: You want spaces and rooms that are balanced. For example, rooms should not be too hot or too cold; ceilings should not be too high or too low; the room should not be too dark or too light. In other words, it should be just right for you.

* Go with the flow: Position furniture in a room so that the energy can flow through easily.

* Create conversation areas: It's not necessary to leave wide-open spaces within a room. Create areas that encourage and nurture conversation, comfort and a feeling of welcome and warmth.
