The words feng shui mean wind and water and the purpose of feng shui is to enable you to live in harmony with your environment.
Feng shui practitioners believe that by moderating the flow of energies that surround you, you can bring harmony and order into your everyday life.
This is where cats can help, they are sensitive to these energies and they can have a beneficial effect on them. Cats always gravitate towards areas of bad or stale chi within the home or garden and set about converting it into a more auspicious energy. Also there are the benefits of the love and affection that is created when a cat is brought into a home. Tests have proved that living together is beneficial for people and pets. Stroking a cat lowers heart rates, blood pressure and stress levels.
Geopathic stress is natural radiation that emanates from the earth, which has been distorted by modern intrusions or barriers, such as the installation of cables, pipes etc. Such stress can drain our energies but cats thrive on it. They have the ability to neutralise this damaging force and by nature are attracted to any sites of geopathic stress within the home. You will find that such an area will become one of their favourite places to settle. Therefore don't move furniture such as beds or sofas into these spots as it will have an adverse effect on your health if you spend too much time in that area.
