be strong or weak, and flow through objects, buildings, and people. It is
essential to encourage good Chi in our environments to ensure positivity
and prosperity. Chi is created through the proper arrangement of elements
in the room to allow for maximum energy flow.

#2: Yin and Yang
Yin and Yang are two primary forces of Chi and are essential to creating
a healthy balance. Yin and Yang are rooted in one another and when
they are balanced, harmony and success occur-which is absolutely desirable.
Yin and Yang cannot exist without one another and are eternally
interconnected. It is simple to incorporate this principle into a space,
as long as elements within the room are balanced.
