How Does Feng Shui Work?
By changing the energy flow in your home, office & car.
Example: If you put a laundry basket in your bedroom doorway and constantly have to step over it, chances are you will get irritated with it being in your way.. So, you move it and now you can walk into your bedroom easily and peacefully.. That seems obvious right, and alot of the furniture placement is obvious and intuitive but we also make some common mistakes.
Common Mistake: Desk Placement. A lot of desks are make to sit facing the wall so we sit with a wall right in front of our faces and our backs exposed.
Feng Shui Cure: Sit with your back to the wall, so your back is protected and you can see who is coming into and out of your space.
Space in front of your face leads to more creativity and increased productivity.
