The thought behind it is to "unblock" the way, so the powers may stream unreservedly and make a balance in a space (or life).

The fundamental contrast between the acts of feng shui (or "Vastu" in the Hindu culture) and Western customs is a conviction that we as people are associated with the spaces we occupy. Adherents to feng shui see sacrosanct purposes and otherworldly implications behind structure or architecture - not simply creatively engaging structures or externally pretty environment but rather seeing them as the source that can create good energy or trap energy.

It's a framework that discloses how to structure and develop structures, houses, and urban communities. Devotees of Vastu accept that each building is a living life form with its own vitality, and they study the impacts of the five components - earth, water, fire, air, and space - on their general surroundings.
