Feng Shui (风水) refers to the harnessing of the environmental energies to create a balance between the five elements (Earth, Metal, Water, Wood & Fire) and “Qi” (气) of an environment. “Qi” refers to the cosmic energies flows within the earth . In classical Feng Shui, it is also believed that time, space, and human conditions have certain effects on the "Qi".
The objective of Feng Shui is to create harmony and balance of energies to achieve general well being and improve “luck” of the occupants. Such well being can be for wealth, health, relationships, work, children, knowledge, power, etc.
