Free Module 2: Shapes & Form Feng Shui

Chapter 22: The Kitchen

In the kitchen, you have two opposing elements: the stove representing the `Fire' element and the sink and refrigerator representing the `Water' element. Both elements clash and you must seek a proper balance between the two opposing elements.

In Feng Shui, the Kitchen represents warmth and wealth.

Unfavourable:

Kitchen Layout

Favourable:

Kitchen Layout 
 

The kitchen should have sufficient lighting, airy and spacious. The picture above shows a gap between the sink and the stove. This is good. The sink represents belongs to `yin' or water element should not be too close to the stove (minimum at least 2 feet away) as it belongs to the `fire' element or `yang.'

Note: As a last resort, if you are unable to provide the 2 feet space, then at least leave a gap between the two appliances. 

 


Ideal not to have the stove (the knobs) face towards the main door. Some stoves (see picture below) have their knobs `facing' the ceiling, this is acceptable or in a neutral' position:-

For a cooker (see picture below),  the knobs should not be facing the main entrance/door as cooking is an important event for the family. Having the knob facing the main door denotes your food is `flowing out' of the house.

For the stove:-

1. It should not face the main door.

2. It should not face the toilet door.

3. It should not face any bedroom doors.

4. Avoid placing it in the middle of the house.

5. Avoid placing it under a beam.

6. It should not be placed below a staircase.

7. It should not be sited on the same wall opposite a bed.

8. There should not be a large window behind the stove.

9. Avoid placing it below a  sewerage pipe or immediately above it there should not be a toilet.

10. Avoid placing it at a corner.

11. The kitchen should not be round or irregular shaped.

..thank Cecil for this website... Cecil Lee Cecil Lee support@geomancy.net - 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
