Dear Uncle Dixer: As soon as we enter the house, it opens up into the living room. However, upon entering, we have the shoe cupboard on the right, which I have been told brings negative energy.

How to make this right? Unfortunately, we can’t move the shoe cupboard. Also, the main door is in the Northeast part of the house. Thanks!

Answer: Shoe cupboard is not desirable when it is untidy. Keep it neat and clean and it is a good thing to have in an entry foyer.

Do put most of the shoes inside the cupboard and clean the dirty ones before storing them and it will be fine.
