Feng Shui Tip 1: The Effect of Electrical Appliances on Feng Shui
In Feng Shui, the auspicious areas of a house should be kept as spacious as possible so that the positive energy can be flow smoothly. There should not any obstruction to the flow of Chi (or Qi) in auspicious sectors. Thus, big or heavy furniture items should not be placed there. This is also an important concept in the practice of Vastu Shastra.
In Feng Shui, sound and electrical energy have the effect of activating Feng Shui stars (good or bad). Therefore, the placement of electrical appliances such as television, radio, fan or computer can affect the Feng Shui of a house. These electrical appliances
should be placed at the auspicious sectors. Furniture which can be placed at the inauspicious sectors includes sofa, cupboard, etc.
Generally speaking, the left side of a living room is the Green Dragon while the right side is the White Tiger. The Green Dragon is considered auspicious while the White Tiger is considered inauspicious. Electrical appliances should generally be placed at the left side of the living room while the big furniture like cupboard or sofa should be placed at the right side of the room.
Feng Shui Tip 2: Road That Curves Away From a House
In Feng Shui, roads are the modern version of water. Thus, the curvature of a road affects the Feng Shui of a house. A road that curves away from a house facing the entrance creates a strong and negative flow of energy called Shar Chi (Sha Qi) towards the house. Since water represents wealth in Feng Shui, the presence of such as a road will have a negative wealth effect on the inhabitants of the house.
To solve this problem, place a windscreen in front of the entrance to prevent the negative Shar Chi (Sha Qi) from “entering” the entrance directly.
Feng Shui Tip 3: A Long Straight Road That Creates Shar Chi (Sha Qi)
In Feng Shui, a long straight road facing a house can create Shar Chi (Sha Qi) to the house. The longer the road is, the stronger the Shar Chi (Sha Qi) that is created. Inhabitants of a house facing this Shar Chi (Sha Qi) will encounter problems like accidents or other “blood-shedding” incidents such as having to undergo a surgery or operation.
The easiest way to solve this problem is to place a windscreen in front of the door or entrance. This will prevent the Shar Chi (Sha Qi) from entering the house directly.
Feng Shui Tip 3 : A Door That Faces Another Door
In feng shui world, a door facing another door can create Shar Chi (Sha Qi) between the two doors. There are four possible scenarios:
(a) Main door of a house facing main door of another house
In this scenario, the inhabitants of both houses are likely to be quick-tempered and quarrel frequently. To solve this problem, place a windscreen in front of the door.
(b) A room door facing a toilet door
This scenario takes place within a house. Besides problems of quick tempers and frequent quarrels, the inhabitants staying in the room might develop digestive and urinary diseases. To solve this problem, place a windscreen in front of the toilet door if the room is big enough. If there is not enough room for a windscreen, simply close the toilet door.
(c) A room door facing a kitchen entrance
This scenario is not as problematic as the first two scenarios. Nonetheless, inhabitants of the room will be prone to accidents and minor injuries and if the problem persists over time, inhabitants might encounter major accidents. To solve this problem, place a windscreen or hang a bead curtain in front of the kitchen entrance.
(d) A room door facing another room door
This scenario is the least harmful of the four. Tempers might erupt occasionally and if inhabitants are working in an office environment, office politics will occur frequently. To solve this problem, place a bead curtain in front of the room door.
Feng Shui Tip 4: Locating An Auspicious Main Door
The main door plays an important role in the Feng Shui of a house. Thus, it is important that the main door is located in an auspicious sector of a house. Generally speaking, the main door should be located in a position which enables positive Chi (Qi) to flow into the house.
If there is a pond or empty space in front of a house, the main door should be located at the centre of the house facing the pond or empty space.
If a road passes by the front of a house and slopes from left to right (or the left side of the road is longer than the right side as seen from the front of a house), the main door should be located at the right side of the house facing the road.
If a road passes by the front of a house and slopes from right to left (or the right side of the road is longer than the right side as seen from the front of a house), the main door should be located at the left side of the house facing the road.
A windscreen can be used to correct the location of an inauspicious main door.
