The living room is usually the focal point of any home: the front door often opens onto it and it is the main gathering area. It should be well lit and have more yang than yin energy. The curtains should be left open to allow in light and it should not be on a lower level than the rest of the home, as this will result in an accumulation of yin energy. Guests will not find an excessively yin living room inviting. Chairs in the living area should have good back support and be arranged in a manner conducive to conversation. You should sit with your back to a wall and not to the main door. Consider relocating the television socket if it is on the wall opposite the front door. There should not be any overhanging beams in the living area but if there are, do not place any chairs or sofas under them. Sitting under these structures for long periods will give you headaches. Do not have an excess of furniture impeding access into your home from the front door. If your front door cannot open fully because it is blocked by furniture, you may find opportunities that were previously certain fall through at the last minute. Keep the space near the front door clear at all times to allow chi to circulate. Remember, your living room provides visitors with their first impression, and is usually where chi energy enters the home.
