TikTok influencer Tan masterfully demonstrates the practical application of feng shui in his easy-to-follow debut. He kicks things off with an explanation of the basic principles of feng shui there's yin and yang (essentially, balance); ba gua (a system of solid and broken lines that make use of yin and yang); the five elements (fire, earth, metal, water, and wood); the five animals (tortoise, bird, dragon, tiger, and snake, which correspond to rear, front, left, right, and center); and chi (which deals with feelings, flow, and energy). Then he walks readers through ways to combine the various elements (avoid having a bedroom near the kitchen, for example, since the fire element is present there), dealing with clutter (a storage plan helps), how to select a home (take into consideration the amount of light it gets), choosing colors for doors (if the door faces south, red would highlight its "strong energy"), and how to lay out every room in the house. Tan keeps things simple, and beautiful illustrations and diagrams demonstrate feng shui in action. Readers looking to spruce up their homes will find this worth returning to.
