The living room is an equally important area to maintain feng shui balance as there is usually where family life unfolds. Applying the magic square technique to this room is highly recommended with the relationship corner in this room also classed as the power corner. This is the most auspicious area to place the television and the memento and relating to a loved one such as a photograph or gift.
Keeping the center square free of closet is essential for promoting good health so if this is where a messy coffee table stands it would be good to move it or at least keep it as tidy as possible. Not everyone in the household will have the same star numbers but this is used for further arranging the sitting as each person can sit in accordance to their most favorable direction. Although chair should not be positioned with their back facing the door as this will direct Sha Qi into the adjoining rooms. The living room is predominantly Yang in nature which is more masculine than Yin so adding a feminine touch perhaps some soft scattered cushions would promote balance. Exposed beams in the ceiling can also be hazardous if your favorite chair is placed under them as they can cause headaches, anxiety, and stress.
This is also good prints both to apply to the bedroom whereby beams, sloping ceilings, or more pictures over the bed can have negative effects. Bamboo flutes at either end of the beams or fabric covering are solutions. The positioning of the bed is imperative and must not be in alignment with the doorway as it will be in the firing line of any incoming Sha Qi. You will also feel ill at ease if you don’t have a view of the doorway from your bed and if you have a non-suite bathroom, it’s best not to have your feet pointing towards as this wash eluding room will draw energy away from you.
Windows are also draining and neither head nor feet should point towards them. A sturdy bed with a solid headboard with the head of the bed against the wall is best and you should try to have about two feet between both sides of the bed and the walls unless you sleep alone in which case space on one side is only needed. Couples can benefit from waking up to a picture that represents their joint goals. In fact, any pictures looking down onto the bed should be chosen with care and preferably reflect nothing aggressive. Mirror reflections are also bad news and add confusion by introducing new people and problems to the relationship.
Fabric curtains or keeping mirrors and cupboards is the logical answer. As with any room in the house it’s best to avoid angular shapes that are going to channel Sha Qi but at least make sure such objects are not directed at chairs or beds. The more curvaceous the room is made to look through furniture and some soft shapes the better.
