Living Room
  • It should be easy to move around without bumping into the corners of furniture.
  • Clutter blocks the flow of energy.
  • Must allow for the most uninterrupted flow of chi as possible.
  • A circular design (in terms of chairs and sofas) with a central focus point is the best.
  • Sometimes furniture lined up against the walls (ie book shelves) can create sharp lines and angles that redirects Chi in unwanted directions.
  • Chairs and other furniture should not point at doorways.
  • The room should be well lit (especially with sunlight during the day).
  • Round tables are good for circulating chi.
  • A living room with too many doorways allows Chi to wander out too easily.
  • Plants allow for positive Chi.

  • A mirror facing and reflecting your bed will send harsh Chi towards you making you feel uneasy and restless.
  • Metal framed beds often create arrows that also direct too much Chi at its occupant.
  • Threatening pictures or art above the bed, at the foot of the bed, or even hanging over the bed can be subconsciously disturbing.
  • Heavy light structures such as chandeliers directly above the bed are suffocating.
  • The direction of the bed is very important because the direction of the Earth's magnetic field has an effect on the quality of sleep.
  • One might want to take into consideration their Bagua Number to determine the best directions to point the head of their bed.
  • The head of the bed placed against a wall provides a sense of security. Same with headboards.
  • It is bad to have the bed directly facing a door or window as Chi will rapidly flow into the bed when trying to sleep. Conversely, if the bed is turned away from the door, not having a good view of people entering can cause feelings of unease and insecurity.
  • The best direction for the bed is off to the side away from being centered with the door but still facing in the direction of the room where the door is. (refer to figures 3 and 4)

  • Bedrooms should tend to be placed towards the rear of the home. This is the most peaceful place.
  • It is best for the bedroom not to be built over an empty room (ie garage, store room) because this creates a vacuum that negatively affects the occupant.
  • Bedrooms with two doors tend to disperse Chi to quickly. You still want the Chi to be absorbed.
  • Sloped ceilings or ceilings with overhead beams (especially directly over the bed) traps negative Chi, and needs to be dispelled.
