Red Front Doors: The Feng Shui Cliche for a Reason

What do Clogged or Leaky Drain Pipes mean in Feng Shui?
From Laura Cerrano, "In Feng Shui drain pipes relate to wealth and health (blood flow and the intestines, which also relates to the immune system). In regard to the reference of wealth, some may say leaky pipes is draining away your finances. Or, a clogged drain pipe could be backing up your finances, such as with not receiving payments on time, or perhaps your feeling overwhelmed with certain financial responsibilities.

Feng Shui Tip: Command Position
“In feng shui, the command position of a room places you in the best place to deal with whatever comes into your life. When you are in the command position of a room, you can see the door. To set up the command position in any room, place the main piece of furniture—a couch, desk or bed—where you can see the door without being in a direct line with it.

The essence of this feng shui position is about being the commander of your own energy so that you do your best in any situation. It isn't about commanding others.
Do I have To?
From Jamie Bass, "Are you nervous to explore feng shui more deeply because you’re afraid you’ll have to do things to your space that you won’t want to? Or, worse, that you’ll discover you’ve been doing things that have actively been hurting your chances of getting what you want in life? What works for each of us is different, so it’s perfectly ok to interpret recommendations differently based on what might work for you. Feng shui is not a fear-based, standardized practice.
This is why we love Feng Shui.
