The sitting position of your back should not face the door (instead be a full solid wall) and it will be best at a position where you can view the door diagonally. It will be best if you have a picture of a mountain behind your sitting position to signify support. On the study table, it is advisable to be clean & tidy. The location of your desk should never be under a beam above.
At your study desk, please avoid having open shelf above you in the front as the edges are considered as 'sha chi' or 'poison arrows'. It will be better having a closed shelf or you can use a cloth covering it like a curtain. The North-East sector is earth, therefore placing a earthly material like pottery, stones, etc in this area will energize your goals and aspirations.

Ensure your study area is well illuminated to gain the essential balanced energy. Placing a crystal on your study table will create a positive 'chi' energy.
