The Yin/Yang symbol is well-recognized by most of us, but it wasn’t until I studied feng shui that I really understood what that funky black & white symbol meant: polar opposites living in harmony. The dark areas are Yin, the light areas are Yang.

Yin and Yang: How do they Relate to Your Property

Yin and yang is an eastern idea that has to do with complementary opposites. It’s all about balance. Yin and yang are present in everything in the universe and their dynamic balance creates harmony and well-being.
Feng Shui Glossary Word of the Month: Yin/Yang
A concept from the I Ching denoting the opposite polarities that came into being when the universe came into manifestation; the Taoist idea that unites all opposites as complimentary inseparable forces.

Feng Shui Tip - Feng Shui Power Principle of Yin/Yang

Does your space need more yin? If you want to create a space that is more relaxed and focused, add:
curves and flowing shapes
dark colors
upholstered furniture
shades on the windows
rugs on the floors
rooms with lots of furniture

Does you space need more yang? If you want to create a space full of energy and excitement, add:
straight lines and angular shapes
light and bright colors
furniture made from wood, glass, or stone
track lighting and bright lights
wood blinds
floors made from wood, marble, tile
rooms with few pieces of furniture

In Feng Shui, having a balance of both yin and yang in your home and office will create the positive energy you need to attract wealth, harmony, and love into your life.
