How to Avoid Corners, Edges and Beams
Certain structures inside the house may create problems. This has a direct impact on 'Chi' and due to it, residents face problems.
Sharp Edges : If there are sharp edges in the house, the flow of Chi is interrupted and bad results are obtained. For example if edges of a pillar or furniture are sharp, difficulties crop up. Its remedy is decoration by colored curtains, plants or mirrors. Otherwise a pillar may be given a round shape by covering it. Plants may be kept near the faulty furniture.
Corners : The corners in a room are normally dark. Therefore lights may be provided here or lamps/fountains may be kept. Plants may also be kept in dark corners or a lamp may be kept on a round table. If small recesses have been made in the wall, drawers are kept full, these are beneficial for Chi of dark corners.
Beam : Beam is forbidden in Feng Shui as it could be lethal. If the roofs are very high then beams may not be much detrimental but beams in a low ceiling destroy the Chi. Persons living under beams remain tense and dejected. Do not keep a bed, dining table or a desk under a beam. This gives fatigue and depression.
Remedies for a beam are as under :
Beam should be covered completely by false ceiling or light should be reflected on the beam.
