Why is addressing interior room corners so important in feng shui? The principles of feng shui compare energy flow to that of water movement.
When water flows into smaller pockets of a stream, what tends to happen? You'll probably observe a pool of water swirl in a spiral, staying in one area. Or it could become stagnant, resulting in no movement at all.
This would be the feng shui metaphor within your home when corners go unaddressed.
