- Avoid mirrors opposite the bed. It invites a third party into the relationship.
- Make sure energy can flow around the bed...that includes under the bed!
This is especially important for children.
- Make sure there are no obstacles when you enter a room as this will obstruct the flow of energy (chi)
through the room.

pots along the walkway to encourage the chi energy to meander on its way to the house.
- Keep stairs clear and unobstructed as this is favourable to the flow of chi through the house.
- Create energy that is calming and serene by keeping your bedroom clean and orderly.
