The Feng Shui Five Elements, The Power of Cycle

Energy exists all around us. It exists as thoughts and feelings.

It also comes from the environment including the natural earth elements. 

The ancient Chinese practice of feng shui aims to create a space that allows chi – the energy of the universe – to flow naturally. One way to achieve this is by filling your home with a healthy balance.

The basic principles of feng shui is the principle of five elements, which are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.
