Obviously, it's a theory to trigger awareness of the relations between human beings and nature. Only when the world is well-manipulated, can it be well availed of and become productive and favorable to humans.
The Chinese term 'Feng Shui' simply means 'Wind and Water.' The concept of them goes throughout the theory and its practice. The ancient Chinese believed a kind of underlying essence of force of things that tends to be dispelled at the chance of wind, while checked at the chance of water.
In ancient China, people would act in virtue of the theory in the hope of promoting prosperity, good health and relationships. Here are some ways Feng Shui is supposed to be able to help you:
