Enrich personal space by identifying auspicious corners, good fortune directions, and life-enhancing elements, and organize the household to intensify their beneficial qualities. Need to improve finances? Grow orange or lime plants, whose ripening fruits symbolize prosperity, or hang coins or bells on the doors. Sleep on an authentic Feng Shui bed, let carpets create solid foundations, and fill vases with the right flowers. Protect the home or office fr om the "shar chi" or "killing breath" of open shelves. And there's a reason traditional Chinese matriarchs keep cleaning paraphernalia out of sight-they know that visible brooms will "sweep away" the family's livelihood.

As you put these time-tested ideas into practice, you'll feel your world getting better and better! 160 pages (all in color), 7 3/4 x 9 1/4. DELUXE PAPERBACK WITH FLAPS.
