Feng Shui is a complex, intricate, profound and yet simple art.
The environment that we live in can contribute to our health, wealth, success and happiness. If we have the right balanced healthy environment it can become the backdrop that allows us to have more energy, inspiration and with this wealth and success can occur.
If you plant a seed in fertile soil, with adequate sunshine and rain it can grow into a beautiful healthy tree. Plant the same tree in poor barren soil, with lack of adequate sunshine and rain it will not grow and may become sick and even die. People are just like trees. We require a high quality environment to thrive. If we live in poor environments we may struggle.
