The 2019 feng shui cures are applied on February 4th. Why? Because feng shui cures are usually applied on the Solar New Year (February 4th, 2019), not the Lunar New Year (February 5, 2019). Of course, you can also apply them at any time in 2019! The principle of “better late than never” sure applies when it comes to creating good feng shui in your space. Start with a clean and orderly home first; do not apply the yearly feng shui cures –- in fact, do not apply any feng shui cures -– if your house has chaotic energy created by clutter and lack of order/cleanliness.
Working with your back to a door puts you in a compromising position, even if you don’t realize it right now. If you reposition your desk and work facing a door, you may be surprised to feel how much more powerful that position is in space. If your desk is positioned so that your back has to be to a door, or if there is no way to change the desk position, put a mirror above your desk or a reflective surface on your desk that enables you to see the door in the reflection. In essence, no one can “sneak up on you” when you face a door or can see it.
The body is in a continual renewal process during the sleep state. From the hours of 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. the body is in a state of repair. Skylights above the bed can negatively affect one of the most important regenerative processes of the body, liver cleansing. The light pouring through the skylight is cold chi and can force your life-force energy to flow upward, which is not conducive to the repairing process. Also, it can negatively impact your sex drive. It is best to cover up the skylight at night or consider moving it, if it is over the bed.
Times change—20 years ago, people saw yoga as a strange practice with no tangible physical benefits. Since then, we've been so widely exposed to its positive effects both on the body and mental health that it's become as mainstream as green juice. Similarly, the ancient Chinese spatial laws of feng shui in houses have only proliferated, with Gwyneth Paltrow and Marie Kondo among its most recent enthusiasts.
