Dear Uncle Dixer: Is it bad luck to use an old bed that was used by a sick person for a long time but never died in her bed? She died in the hospital.

Answer: If it worries you, you can use some simple Feng Shui “huasha” (transform the harmful) methods to overcome your concern.

You can remove whatever that is left over by giving the bed a good physical clean with some Yin/Yang Water (water that is made with half boiling and half icy water) mixed with some antiseptic detergent. Then, hang a calabash on the bed for the first 100 days and this simple ritual should do the trick to remove your fears. It works on both the “in-the-world” and “out-of-the world” realm of our perceptions.
