The state of birth and rebirth is called the samsara.

Mystic knot placement
Because of how benevolent and revered the knot is there is no particular area in the house that would have adverse effects.
However, it is often used as a feng shui cure to protect residents from negative and harmful energy.
For example having it at an entry point would task the mystic knot to filter all the energy coming in. This is why we often see them carved onto interior wooden window trims. So that energy entering from the window would be sieved by the knot.
It can also be frequently found on the grills of doors and gates. So as to influence the energy passing through with it’s longevity powers.
But it is best observed in Chinese weddings where countless mystic knots can be found as decorative items everywhere the groom and bride goes. Including the bedroom!
They are also often found hanging on other auspicious feng shui items such as the jade plant or pagoda.
While the mystic knot carries a very strong symbolism by itself, it can be further enhanced with the type of material it is made of.
Earth based materials are best. Which means that knots carved out from precious stones will be ideal.
However, the mystic know is known to be made in all types of material including metal and wood as well.
If you are wearing it as a pendant, having it in gold is probably not a good idea as it might call too much attention to it… which is not in the nature of the knot.
Finally, if you are hanging them at home, remember that it is best to place them in areas were energy moves about.
For example, the hallway, entry points, living room, etc.
There is also no limit to the number of mystic knots to have at home. Some people have dozens of them incorporated all over the interior design as it is a great symbol of happiness and bliss.
So you can have as many as you want.
