What Is Feng Shui?

Feng Shui (or Wind and Water) is the practice of arranging your environment so that energy or “chi” flows gently and smoothly through your home or business environment.

Alright, so many years ago someone at work told me about the whole Feng Shui thing. My typical response when I get jazzed up about something new is I research it to death and read everything I can on the subject. There are many dusty books scattered throughout my house on the many “things” I’ve become a bit obsessed with over the years. I knew my new home was in the correct alignment for positive “chi” in our lives. I think we even put coins in red satchels at various “correct” locations throughout our house so the money would flow our way (well, that didn’t work).

Fast forward fourteen years later and my husband is obsessed with always leaving the toilet seat cover down after he uses it. This is the only thing he even vaguely remembers about “Feng Shui” because if you don’t close the toilet seat cover after using it your “Chi” can literally go down the drain. God forbid, who wants their Chi flushed away! I am constantly
yelling at him because our cat likes to drink out of the toilet and he keeps insisting he left the lid up. I secretly videotaped this footage as proof and emailed it to him. I could hear him laughing across the house, “very funny buster”! What can I say we are so easily amused around here.
