The Tree of Life is a universal symbol used in a huge number of spiritual and mythological traditions around the world. In various cultures it is known as the Cosmic Tree, the World Tree, the Holy Tree and the Tree of Life. The tree is a symbol of wisdom, protection, strength, abundance, beauty, and salvation. The tree of life is also, of course, a symbol of life itself. With his roots in the earth he has contact with the underworld. With his branches he reaches to heaven. He is a mediator between gods and humans. The three most important systems of trees: roots, trunk and branches are parallel to the human development of body, psyche and spirit. It is a powerful symbol of growth. The tree of life also symbolises eternal life and immortality. In the Feng Shui, all kinds of products are used to influence the energy flow in the home and also to neutralise negative energy. These crystals are a good example of this. Feng Shui (pronounced as: fang shwie) is the more than 3,000 years old philosophy that teaches how the environment can influence happiness. Feng Shui learns which influences design and design have on the well-being and happiness of people, and also how negative influences can be turned into positive ones. Feng Shui is about the relationship between man and the living or working environment and is aimed at harmony between natural and created forms. Everything man makes is essentially not natural, but can be brought into harmony with nature. The goal of Feng Shui is to adapt our living or working environment in such a way that a harmonious flow of the Chi (life force) is stimulated. Chinese philosophy is all about harmony and balance between the complementary forces yin and yang, such as male and female.
