It's purpose is to align the energies of place, meaning our environments both at home and where we work, in order to enhance our personal chi or energy. When properly aligned, our environments enable and support each of us to live richer, fuller, happier lives as we are more enabled to actualize our fullest potentials in life.
When Feng Shui principles are correctly implemented, we can increase the energy in those areas of our lives that we wish to enhance, minimize non-supportive energies, while at the same time being able to experience a greater sense of overall balance, harmony and contentment. It is, however, not a magic bullet. Feng Shui is only one component in life. It can not overcome all challenges in life, but can give us a greater awareness to change the things in life over which we do not have control.
