Question: We are in the process of redesigning our kitchen and, as I have just become interested in feng shui, I thought I would try to incorporate some principles. I have worked out my own and my husband's Pa Kua (mine is 7, his 6). After trying a lot of possibilities we have come the conclusion that the only place for our eye-level stove and microwave is facing south.

Yes, you did the right thing. In Feng Shui, it is always best to have the stove face the Fire element direction.

We will have a separate hob, which will be on an island unit running N-S. From what I have read this is not very auspicious for either of us, but there are really no other practical possibilities.

Yes, this is not ideal but it is better than having it next to a water element e.g. wash basin or refrigerator.

Also the stove will face the refrigerator, which I also believe is undesirable. Is there any thing that can be done to counteract this?

The " good news " is that since you mentioned that your stove is facing the South, which belongs to the Fire element, it is acceptable to have a water position e.g. refrigerator to be facing the `fire' element ie. the stove to `cool down the Fire' element.

Good Luck in your renovations!

..thank Cecil for this website... Cecil Lee Cecil Lee - Feng Shui at Geomancy.Net"When I first learnt about feng shui, I had no idea there was such thing as kindergarten FengShui and the true and proper form of feng shui. I have simply accepted that fact and have followed it step by step. I have learnt many things. It's encouraged me to bring my wellbeing desires forth. Feng Shui really does bring joy into our lives - IF we apply it correctly. FIRST by starting with yourself. How is it that we can gain strong health if we drink coffee, smoke and alcohol? How do we gain a stable financial account if we tend to spend money on things we really don't need in our lives. How can you gain knowledge and wisdom if you curse and criticise? So as you can see, if we want to take advantage of fengshui, then you, as yourself must change."

"When I took action to change myself, I also felt the desire to goto church. religion is like feng shui, there are kindergarten churches, and a true and proper form of church. As i joined the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints; the only true and proper form of church on this earth. life has never been any better. I love it!! It feels as if I can take advantage of fengshui as well as live a happier life I have most desired for. It has brought many blessings into the home."

"Happiness is not within money or wickedness, but love and charity, it balances your life so it will bring forward a more better and stronger YOU!"

"I would like to thank Cecil for this website. I have followed Cecil's feng shui advice and have found them work for me."

"I hope this testimony will help all realise that fengshui will not work, if you plan to be lazy about it!!" All the best, Daniel, New Zealand
