Based on the Chinese philosophy of Taoism, the feng shui system offers practical advice such as where to place furniture, how to accessorize, and what colors to paint a room in order to connect the energies of the universe and dissolve the barriers between the everyday and the sacred. Begin by analyzing your space with the "ba gua compass" to determine the types of energy present in each area. Now you are ready to work with symbols to improve your health, career, relationships, and personal well-being. A comprehensive alphabetical compilation of symbols--both traditional Eastern symbols and more modern ones drawn from Western culture--helps you select and place the right elements, such as aquariums, sculptures, pictures, colors, plants, mirrors, and stones in the areas of your home. With feng shui, you can become a conscious part of the cosmos and encourage harmony and good fortune in your life.
