Feng shui is all about energy, and the basic laws of energy are universal and work the same way, no matter where you are geographically located. Does the law of gravity, for example, work differently in Norway than it does in Morocco?
Feng Shui really starts working when you go beyond the culturally specific, symbolic level, and work with the flow of energy on a deeper level. The energy that we are all connected to through the sense of "knowing, or gut feeling."
- The big mirror facing the main door never felt right? Well, now you know why - it pushes away all the good Chi, or energy, so your space gets no nourishment!
- Feel depressed after just a few hours in your home office? Would the heavy beam right above your desk, the poor lighting, blank walls and various boxes on the floor have anything to do with your low energy levels?
