In the study of feng shui, the main entrance is considered the mouth through which external qi enters and flows into the rest of the house. The lining, design, shape and size of the front door are believed to have a significant impact on the luck, wealth and general well-being of the family.

In selecting the iron gate for the main gate, the use of arrow or spear designs should be avoided. Sharp structures will create destructive energy that will bring health problems to the family.

Based on the principle of good feng shui design, the size and layout of the front door should match the perspective and floor area of ​​your home. Ideally, the front door should also have an auspicious measure as dictated by the feng shui rule. For example, a large house with a small entrance will restrict qi from entering the house, affecting the luck and wealth of the occupants.

The front door should open to an open, bright area to invite yang qi (life force) into the house. The front door that opens to a wall will restrict sunlight and will not provide a smooth passage for qi to enter the house.

The front door should not form a straight path with the back door. The Qi that enters the house will be channeled through the back door without having enough time to circulate through the house. A quick outflow of qi will damage the finances of the occupants. They often have a hard time building wealth or saving their income.

Avoid cluttering the entrance of the house with obstructive objects (such as old newspapers, toys, or large cabinets). Unnecessary objects or furniture will block the flow of qi into the house, affecting the lot of the occupants.

It is unfavorable to see the bathroom door when entering the house. Bad vibrations from the bathroom will rush towards the front door causing ill health and bad luck.

Living room

The living room is both a leisure area and a place for the family to entertain their guests. The living room should feel warm, relaxing and inviting for one to tone down after a day’s work reading newspapers or watching television. Proper furniture arrangement, proper lighting, and color scheme will enhance the flow of qi and create a cozy atmosphere in the house. This, in turn, will bring a flow of good luck and opportunities from friends, colleagues, bosses, or business partners.

It is unfavorable to sit under the downward pressure of the ceiling columns and place the sofa without the support of a wall.

Cluttering the living room with unnecessary furniture or possessions (such as toys, cabinets, newspapers, and old documents) will restrict the circulation of qi.

Ideally, the seating arrangement of the sofa should be supported by a solid wall and should have a clear view of the front door.

Decorating the house with ancient figures will increase the Yin qi of your home. Ancient figurines unearthed from ancient sites tend to carry the energy of their previous owners and can attract spirits.

Avoid placing too many empty vases in the house. The empty vase is known as kong ping in Chinese, which sounds like poverty.

Bedroom

On average, a person spends about a third of their time resting in bed. As the bedroom is a sanctuary where one rejuvenates and nurtures the energy of the body, the location and orientation of the bed will affect the quality of sleep, which in turn affects the health and luck of those who sleep there.

Leaving some morning sun in bed will energize your qi, which in turn will promote good health and relationships.

Avoid bedrooms that have an irregular shape. Missing corners or pillars with sharp edges that tend to create destructive energy.

The bed should always be placed against a solid wall or use a headboard for support.

Avoid having too many open shelves in the bedroom. Open shelves resemble the edge of a knife and should be covered with doors.

Sleeping under a rotating ceiling fan or a pointed ceiling light tends to radiate negative vibrations that will affect your health.

Place your bed carefully, as it is not conducive to bypassing the toilet bowl. The bad smell and the water vapor rushing towards the bed would bring bad health and bad luck.

One should avoid sleeping under an exposed beam or hanging cabinets. Exercising downward pressure on the head will cause nightmares and headaches.

Placing sharp objects (such as swords or scissors) under the bed is a feng shui taboo, which will bring a number of misfortunes.

Avoid sleeping with your head aligned with the bedroom door. The rushing qi from the door will interrupt your sleep causing unease.

The human body is most vulnerable when one is asleep. Sleeping next to a full-length mirror will deflect human qi. At night, one can also be frightened by his own reflection.

Avoid placing a television or computer in the bedroom. Prolonged exposure to the electromagnetic field emitted by electrical appliances is harmful to health.

Avoid placing the bed directly behind the toilet, stove and air conditioning compressor, which will generate negative energy that would disrupt sleep and health.

Kitchen

In feng shui, the kitchen stove is an important area that governs health, finances, and procreation. Since food is normally prepared in the kitchen, the location and lining of the stove will directly affect the health of the family. “Health is wealth”.

It is a Chinese custom for the family to pray to the God of the Stove during the Chinese Lunar New Year season. The Chinese believed that by making offerings of sweet and sticky desserts to the God of the stove, he would be unable to speak about the wrongdoings of the family in heaven.

Placing the stove without the support of the wall will cause its qi to scatter and looking at the stove directly opposite the faucet will result in a clash between the elements of water and fire.

The kitchen stove should not be visible from the front door or directly in front of the toilet, which means financial losses.

For safety reasons, you should avoid placing the sink near the stove. The conflicting elements of both fire and water tend to cause frequent disputes and lead to financial problems.

The kitchen stove should not be installed under a raised beam, which tends to affect the health of female occupants.

It is unfavorable to chop food or drop kitchen utensils on the stove. Always keep stove burners clean and working.
