Our life consists of an amalgamation of energies that are in duality. We are surrounded and influenced by both the yin (female) and the yang (male) which are both positive and negative. The four elements of earth, water, wind and fire are also representative of such energy and a perfect harmony can exist in our life only when all the elements and energies are in sync with each other and the individual. Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese practice of balancing the energies through rearrangement of furniture and objects in our living space. A Feng shui expert can bring about the required happiness in any individual’s life by balancing the four major aspects of health, wealth, career and relationships. Each aspect of life has been assigned a specific direction, colour and element that can be reigned in and controlled by the practice of Feng Shui.

A Feng shui expert is trained in the art of accurately calculating the directions of an individual which are either auspicious or inauspicious for him. The expert can then provide guidance and counsel in the various ways and means in which a certain aspect of life can be enhanced and the negativity from other areas can be reduced. A Feng shui expert has the right knowledge to place and re-arrange the décor of a home or office to activate beneficial flow of energy around the living space and diversion of negative vibes. Specific Feng Shui objects and articles that can enhance the positive effects of certain elements and eliminate the negativity need to be carefully placed keeping specific directions in mind. This kind of an accuracy of calculation can only be the work of an expert.

Wrong placement of objects can create much chaos and havoc in the life of the individual and hence applying Feng shui tips and principles without the guidance of a feng shui expert can bring about the downfall of the individual. As for example, placing of three Chinese coins tied with red ribbons on the handle of the entrance door facing inwards can signify and symbolise prosperity and wealth. This is a common Feng shui tip for wealth and prosperity enhancement. However, if wrongly placed towards the outside of the house, it can result in loss of money. Such is the importance of direction and element in the practice of Feng Shui. Also, the water element is supposed to be an activator of career if placed in the right direction which is the northern side of a home or office.

However, if placed without the guidance of a Feng Shui expert it can wreck the lives of the inhabitants of that living space. A water body in the bedroom can cause theft or if placed in the wrong direction from the door it can cause the man of the house to have a roving eye, which would be bad for personal relationships. Hence, when you plan to use the powerful tool of Feng shui to improve the quality of your life, it is advisable to do it properly and with the correct guidance of an expert.
