Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese practice, science and art that originated over 3,000 years ago. To explain an art form over 3,000 years old can be quite difficult but this day in age at the root Feng Shui is regarded as a system that basically reveals how one can balance the energies of any given space henceforth assuring good health and fortune for the people that inhabit the space. Feng literally means wind while Shui means water, two elements that are connected with luck and fortune in the exotic Chinese culture. In Taoism, which Feng Shui is based from, the earth is full of Chi or energy that needs to be balanced in order to live in harmony. Yin and Yang and the five Feng Shui elements are the basic aspects derived from Taoism.
