One of the biggest myths about Feng Shui is that it’s mainly about arranging your furniture and decorating your home.
This misunderstanding is shared by Feng Shui newbies and skeptics alike.
But if decorating tips were all Feng Shui had to offer, its value in your life would be very low indeed.
Feng Shui has been around for thousands of years because it offers so much more than mere decorating tips.
In fact one of Feng Shui’s greatest strengths is that it helps you to stay safe and secure in your environment, freeing you to focus on the most important things in your life.
When you feel safe enough to relax you can focus on enhancing your life, using the Bagua Map to develop purpose and intention, and the Five Elements to create balance and harmony.
Here are a few examples of the ways that Feng Shui protects you, reduces your stress, and helps you stay safe.
Follow these links to learn more about using Feng Shui’s important ideas about security in your environment.
