The word, Feng Shui, means 'wind' and 'water'. The phrase essentially emphasizes harmony and balance in your surroundings. The practice of placing things harmoniously dates back more than 2000 years ago.
The theory of Feng Shui is based on the principles of Yin and Yang that everything needs to be balanced or leveled. Feng Shui masters kept the secret of this system guarded with their lives, to strengthen the emperor's power.
Their lifetime devotion and humility to their masters, deprived the commoners of these secrets for a long, long time. Moreover, anyone who tried to get these secrets, including the families, were killed.
Teachings of Feng Shui were mostly verbal and passed on from generations to generations. Today the secret is no more a secret and this great art is known to bring immense prosperity, luck, health, and wealth to its users.
Feng Shui Decorating Tips For the Bedroom
Get rid of every form of passive entertainment. For instance, remove the TV, computer, exercise equipment or video games from your bedroom. All these items disrupt the energy flow and divert the focus from bedroom activities to other things.

If your bedroom is fairly large, you can place plants around the window or near your bed.
Appropriate lighting in the bedroom is essential, since light is the prime source of energy. Use adjustable dimmers to brighten your room or subdue the light effect.
The colors in the bedroom must be soothing. A bedroom is a room for energy restoration and sexual healing. Thus, choosing Feng Shui colors will work wonders.
Feng Shui Decorating Tips For the Living Room
The living room is the first room that welcomes your old friends, your office colleagues and every person knocking on your door. It's known as the room for opportunities and strengthening bonds. Every piece of furniture in the living room must face the door.

Kitchen is where the food is cooked and good food yields good health. While decorating the kitchen, place the stove in a way that the cook can see the room's expanse and is not left out. If you can't move the stove, cooking island is the best idea. This allow the cook to be a part of the people around him/her.

The stove, basin, and the refrigerator must be at diagonals of each other as the elements of fire and water cannot be mixed. Feng Shui totally disallows narrow spaces. However, if you live in an apartment and you don't really have a choice, keep the number of items in the kitchen to a minimum.
The objective is to remove the clutter from all spaces for the free flow of energies. Hope these ideas help you to make a home full of love and happiness!
