Feng means Wind and Shui means water in Chinese language. It is an ancient Chinese art, at least 5000 years old.
There are five elements. Everything is energy. If you are able to channel the positive energy understanding the five elements, you will be successful in all spheres.
How to channel the energy and what is the proof that Feng Shui works?
We may refer at least one real story for this.
Hans Snook is famous for his slogan, 'The future is bright, The future is Orange'. With this he developed his company and sold it for a huge amount of 50 million pounds.
Snook was born in England. He dropped out of university and worked in the hotel business in Canada.
Then he went to Hong Kong and worked in a telecoms company. In 1994, he came back to London and launched a mobile phone company.
He was all success due to his belief in Feng Shui. Even though he did not have a great belief in that, he consulted a Feng Shui master. The master recommended certain alterations in his office and assured him that within twelve months the business would become very successful.
And that is what happened. His business incredibly bought a lot of money.
Not only Hans Snook, almost all businessmen around the world who want an all round success and prosperity adop Feng Shui principals. The Proof?
You may see the water spring in front of the big malls and corporate office buildings.
One interesting example is Andrew Thrasyvoulou. He is an architect himself and owner of a hotel group, Myhotel Company.
When he took over a London building he had to redesign and modify it since the existing one was not according to the principles of Feng Shui.
He has based the layout on the principles of this Chinese art. Major changes in the 76 room hotel were made.
The staircase facing the entrance was moved in order to make the positive flow of energy. The bar's hard edges were removed and were replaced with round corners.
A Fish Tank was placed in front of Cash register locks to bring luck and prosperity.
Thus the entire hotel was modified and he made intense money.
The latest fashion is to engage a Feng Shui master along with the architect.
The Hindu Scriptures specify Vastu Sastra which is more than Feng Shui.
All these special techniques are simply aligning the forces which are invisible. Those who respect and adopt them are competent and those who are ignorant of the facts are deprived of the benefits.
Here we must understand the basic principles and make our life a successful one following these rules.
