A Feng Shui design will always attract good energy through the main entrance. Let the chi flow right into your home and life by avoiding obstacles at your front door. Such obstacles may limit the amount of energy entering your home. Clear out anything behind your door for even more benefits.
Make sure your home encourages learning.
Simply, putting books where you can see them, immediately encourages learning. When you come in your front door, stimulate learning for your family with this easy tip. The energy of books, maps and artwork is hugely beneficial to our children and their passion to learn.
Position your bed to feel safe, loved, and great.
Place your bed in the Commanding Position of your bedroom. This spot is farthest from the door, making sure you’re still able to see the doorway. Be able to see the entrance and anyone approaching while you’re lying in bed. The essence of this position is about being the commander of your own energy. This Feng Shui tip will help you do your best in any situation. Placing your bed in the Commanding Position allows you to be stronger, calmer, and in charge.
Boost your career with a better desk position.
