Wear shades of red green to feel a positive chi during a pregancy
In feng shui, energy is all-encompassing and moving slowly, rapidly, or in a balanced manner. Our surroundings tell the world exactly how we see ourselves. If you see yourself alone, and you constantly think about how lonely you feel, you receive more of what you are thinking about — loneliness.
