Feng shui

People that follow folk culture believe in something called feng shui. Feng shui is the energy that your environment produces. This energy can be positive or negative. One example is the way someone places their bed. In order to maintain good feng shui, the bed must have a strong supporting wall, be away from windows, and should not have feet facing out a bedroom door.
