Feng Shui Glossary

Updated: Apr 9

There are many great Feng Shui words you will learn over time. Here are a few of my favorites:

Feng Shui (Feng (wind) and Shui (water):

Wind and water are the two Chinese words that are the natural elements that flow, move, and circulate everywhere on Earth. They are also the most basic elements required for human survival. The wind being air and without water, we would die.

Chi (Chinese word for energy):

All things have energy. Energy is everywhere. Even a rock or solid matter has Chi. Chi is the foundation of Feng Shui basics since it's all about balancing the energy/chi in one's home or office to support the wants, needs and desires of self.


Yin and Yang are used as a tool in Feng Shui. Yin and Yang are like two sides of a coin. You will never have one without the other. The aim is to embrace and transform both sides of energy to bring them together as a balanced whole. When a family and business in balance, everyone feels better, healthier, happier, energized and peaceful.
