Feng Shui literally means wind and water. It is the placement of objects to take advantage of the positive flow of energies in a home, office, or other invironment. As energy moves well it brings with it circulation of all that is good. Think of a stagnant pond as the stagnant energy you want to get moving in your environment. Think of a hurricane or tidal wave as energy that is perhaps out of control and destructive. If you have energy that is destructive you will want to use Feng Shui techniques to tame and slow these energies.
