Slow Down The Energy Flow –

Doing this will make you feel lighter and more efficient.

Keep The Path To the Front Entry Clear –

Balance Five Elements –

Re-balancing Kitchen Workstation – Having the stove across from the sink can cause conflict. That is why most experts suggest a triangular setup. Having fire across from water will just put out the fire. The solution place a wood element between your sink and stove. The water will feed the wood and wood will feed the fire. In this case, the wood will act like a mitigating element. Wood also presented as the color green.
