In Feng Shui, there is a map called the bagua as shown on the side. This is a general chart but not necessarily good for everyone. Say your bad direction is in the Southeast but on the chart it shows its your money corner, how conflicting.
Thats why I would not suggest doing Feng Shui on your own. I remeber when I first started I tried to follow books. I read and it actually give me bad luck. I finally hired a consultant, he came with his compass and I filled out a questionnaire before he arrived.
He went to each room looking at the compass and checking the direction continuously from each room. I had no idea what he was doing the first time but he was taking calculation and configuring it with my date of birth, animal sign and my good and bad directions.
He spent about an hour to two. It seemed so complicated that's because it was. He told me a few things I should move around and take out. I immediately moved them.
One week later I received my report and boy was it in depth and turned out all the things I thought I was doing right was wrong. Well, that was 25 years ago and after all my years of studying and consultations. I always recommend you get a profesional or at least a report from a master who will know your precise luck.
