RALEIGH — Looking for a new relationship or a new job? A Raleigh woman says the answer may be in your house, and an ancient practice may help uncover it.
Debra Michie is an expert in Feng Shui, the Chinese art of placement.
"By putting your surroundings in harmony and making them peaceful and balanced with nature, then you feel peaceful and balanced with nature, and the rest of your life falls into place," she says. Michie believes rooms of our homes represent different aspects of our lives.
Raleigh's Regina Peteway wants to change her life, so she turned to Michie for help. Michie believes she can tell a lot about Peteway just by looking at the dishes in her china cabinet.
"I would say that you are adding a lot of work in your life," Michie tells her. Her suggestion: Put most of the china away and leave only a couple of pieces for display.
Feng Shui believers say front doors should open easily to let positive energy into homes. Toilet seats should be closed to keep energy from going down the drain.
Michie says the 3,000-year-old practice is tried and true. She suggests rearranging your house to see if it works for you.
