It may be real, but I think there are a lot of people claiming they can help you with it, when they are really scamming you out of money. I watched a show where they brought in 3 "professionals" and all 3 of them told the woman that they should change their room 3 different ways! Not one of them agreed with each other! So if it's a science, shouldn't they all be in agreement?

Feng shui is the ancient Chinese practice of placement and arrangement of space which is claimed to achieve harmony with the environment. Skeptics consider it to be nothing but superstition or a primitive form of environmental psychology. Feng shui is a discrete Chinese belief system involving a mix of geographical, religious, philosophical, mathematical, aesthetic, and astrological ideas. It literally means "wind (feng) and water (shui)", and is not a decorating style, but a discipline with guidelines compatible with many different decorating styles. The source of the term is purported to come from the Burial Book written by Guo Pu(??) in the Jin Dynasty(??). Qi (?) is reputedly dispersed when it rides the wind and stops when it meets water. The ancients collected qi so that it did not dissipate, and directed it so that it was retained. For this reason this art is called Feng Shui. For a place to have "good feng shui" is for it to be in harmony with nature, and to have "bad feng shui" is to be incongruous with nature. Although people aren't usually described as having good or bad feng shui themselves, believers in feng shui say that certain people by force of personality or visual appearance are able to add or subtract from the feng shui of their surroundings.
