There are all kinds of 'directional pulls' on this planet: gravitational,
electromagnetic and perhaps even some kinds of physic or metaphysical pulls.
But from my teaching, my reading and my experience I have never heard of
such a thing being a consideration when doing zazen (zen meditation).
You should be able to do zazen anywhere at anytime: sitting, standing,
walking; facing north, south, east, west, up or down. You might try doing
zazen facing in the 'comfortable' direction, and then the next time in the
'uncomfortable' direction. If there's a real difference I'd advise you to
learn to do zazen facing the 'uncomfortable' direction.
