Feng Shui Fabulous: Transformational
Tips For Everyday Living
by Melissa Cook AuthorHouse

"The ultimate goal of feng shui is to create a home that nourishes and supports who we are and who we want to benot just a home that looks good-but one that makes us feel good from the moment we see our front door to our first step inside."

Melissa Cook takes us on an eye-opening and mind expanding journey through our own homes, work places or quiet retreats. She introduces us to the ancient Chinese art of arranging our environment, so that our quality of life is up-lifting. Feng shui literally means wind and water. Your living environment could have the elements in it.

Chi means energy and when you arrange your home so that more chi is in it, you will be happier, have more prosperity and peace. It is said that our environment mirrors our inner selves. If your mind is in chaos, then your home will be messy, dirty or crowded with possessions. A rational-minded person lives in harmony with his/her home. Some of the principles of feng shui involve facing your fears, opening up your views around your home, capture life-giving chi and make your front door inviting. Stairways in feng shui are symbols of waterfalls of chi. Placing a mirror at the base of the stairs, will reflect chi back up the stairs. You don't want the chi going out the front door! If you manage the energy of your stairways, you can also improve your health and well-being.
