Feng Shui has been around for over 6,000 years, and we’re still using it today to improve the quality of our lives.
“Feng Shui” literally translates to “Wind/Water”.
It represents the natural energy that we can’t see -- the life giving energy of nature. They knew that this energy was the source of abundance and prosperity on earth.
The whole idea of Feng Shui, is to use specific shapes, colors and symbolism, to hold the appropriate energies in their corresponding areas of your home or office. Healing crystals hold stores of natural energy, and also allow it to flow smoothly.
Harness the power of Feng Shui by using the bagua map. It’s easy to use, and you can apply it to your home, office, an entire floor of a building, or even just your desk!
