What Is Chi?
A body's positive 'Chi' is most vulnerable to the evil 'Chi' when they have an easy access. With your feet facing the door, your body becomes the softest target for an evil 'chi'; which can be fatal to an extent.
What Happens To The Soul In The Body?
It is believed that one's soul becomes a defenseless target to the negative 'chi', which attracts them to slide away from the body when the body is resting or in a state of deep sleep. So, sleeping with your feet facing the door will only make your body feel all the more defenseless.
Which Should Be The Correct Placement Of Your Bed?

In case of construction restraints, make sure to place the bed and permanently shut the door; blocking any kind of 'Chi' from entering the room. By following this superstition, you will be able to live a healthier and a better lifestyle.
