Any time you cannot harness the good day chi that you get from having a front door facing one of your good directions, or the good night chi that comes from having the crown of your head pointing in one of your good directions, you want to be sure to effectively activate those directions in any area where you spend significant amounts of time.
Create activations that are strong, clear and dynamic representations of what you want more of. Because my husband and I have opposite good directions, I've wrestled with this quite a bit and I find that clear statements of where I am trying to go and what I want to achieve can do a lot to offset challenging circumstances.
You're way ahead of the game because you recognize what is going on and can now do something about it. Isn't knowing about feng shui great?!
