Traditional or classical fengshui is an ancient practice first developed some 6 000 years ago by Neolithic Chinese.

The early finding blossomed into a sophisticated, well-honed tradition by Tang dynasty (618-907 C.E.)

Essentially, classical feng shui is a system based on keen observation of heavenly (time) and earthly (interior and exterior space) forces and how the qi of each interact.

It is practice of balancing these forces. With balance comes the likelihood of better health, wealth, and relationships. With balance, feng shui gives you impetus, and the drive to succeed.
