Feng Shui ......Feng Shui (pronounced "fung shway"), a practice of balancing energy or Chi based on the philosophy of Taoism, is literally translated as "wind and water," symbolizing movement and energy. It is sometimes called the Chinese art of placement--The Feng Shui Society---Feng Shui--Feng Shui--Feng Shui--Feng Shui--Feng Shui--Feng

the feng shui gate--Feng Shui means "wind and water."
It's an ancient Chinese art form that deals with the balancing of energy through the placement of objects. The goal for Feng Shui is for everything to be in harmony or balance. The Chinese word for energy is "chi". How the chi flows in your house affects your everyday life.
What does Feng Shui do? Basically, aside from balancing your energy, it is a tool that is used to examine your surroundings. It allows you to recognize the subliminal messages that you are sending your self. Once these messages are acknowledged they can be changed and new messages that are more beneficial can be fostered.
Feng Shui will initiate change.
Bagua, what is it? It is an eight-sided map that is used as a tool to distinguish the 9 different aspects of life and personality. The Bagua can be applied to an individual room, an entire house, a garden, and even a desk or a car. Think of it as a template and place it mentally or physically over the area in which you wish to Feng Shui. Generally the career section is overlaid on the center of the wall with the main entranceway. This is where the Feng Shui journey begins.

that 'brain waves' are not confined to the brain but travel throughout the body via the perineural system, the sheaths of connective tissue surrounding all nerves. During treatment, these waves begin as relatively weak pulses in the thalamus of the practitioner's brain, and gather cumulative strength as they flow to the peripheral nerves of the body including the hands--Science Measures the Human Energy Field--Energy Fields, Biomagnetism, and Their Affect on Healing--Radar Hands Theory--THE HANDS--Healing Hands--How Does Reflexology Work?--Electronics link mind and body -- Spiritual Healing
