Location of front door and kitchen

Recommended Posts


Hi

My house is east facing. I would like to seek your advice on the following:

1. Front door -Is it truethatthe front door and front gate should not be aligned?Myfront gate is currently on the left of the house. In orderthat they are notin a straight line, the front door can be shifted to the right of the house. But theright is the 'tiger' sidewhich is less ideal compared to the 'dragon' (left). I cant shift the front door to the middle as it faces the back of the lamp post.

2. Kitchen - Is it true that the kitchen cannot be located at the northwest of the house?Isit better toshift itto swop with the granny's room andtoilet, and switch to the southeast of the house? Or it is better for the kitchen to remain at the northwest to suppress the Jue Ming star?

3. Alter - Does the alter need to directly face the front door? Or is it ok for the alter to face front door but from the side, i.e. my front door on the right and the alter on the left?

Thank you.

These are some considerations:

There are many instances both in Singapore, Malaysia and all over the world that it is still possible for the front door and front gate to be aligned together.

Why some say that it cannot be aligned?

This has more to do with common sense than Feng Shui:

1. It has often to do with either the type of main gate design and /or how often one fully opens the main gate.

2. This is because, if the main gate if fully opened can be "exposed" to sha qi or poison arrow(s) from neighbouring street lamp or poison arrow(s) from a neighbour's roof-line.

3. Especially, because of Para 2; this is why, it is often considered SAFER to have the main entrance door at the "other side" of the house. Here, we are suppose to have more control as to what is facing the main door.

Thus because of Para 3; some conveniently say that the main door should not be aligned with the main gate.

This statement sounds more like a newbie "geomancer-talk". It is so easy to say shift this, swop this.

But, one needs to do a proper Triage.

Many considerations: who is the main breadwinner (male or female); on the ground floor; has to check what is above on the 2nd floor. For example, what happens if there is a toilet at 2nd floor - south east.

And or if the stove goes to SE, what is on the 2nd storey a bedroom a bed etc...

Not that ideal.

Master Cecil

Thanks for your reply.

1. Front door - Is it true that the front door should ideally be located on the left (dragon) side of the house, instead of the right (tiger)?

Also, if the main gate and the front door are aligned, do we need to place any plants etc to block anysha qi?

2. Kitchen - The breadwinner is a male. Assuming that kitchen shifts to the southwest and the bedroom with in-built toilet is above the kitchen, would this be an issue? Otherwise, is it ok for the kitchen to remain in the northwest?

As mentioned, in my previous message; if no threat, what is there to block any non-existing sha qi.

In addition, common sense says that if this area is the car-park; won't it be an obstacle to parking a car and/or getting in and out of the car-park.

Are you thus looking at an "imaginary enemy" in the form of an imaginary threat or non-existing threat? What is there to cure if there is no threat to the main door?

Why so obsessed with this? Unless you can find a threat.

As mentioned, in my last message. Have you done a proper TRIAGE?

Ref: http://wiki.geomancy.net/wiki/Feng_Shui_Triage

A proper Triage MEANS:

1. Plotting the flying stars of the home. Here, one is analysing the flying star sectors. In addition, the individual family member's ba zi and even the eight house chart(s) are considered in a HOLISTIC manner.

2. Reviewing the lady of the house's ba zi to ensure the best facing direction of the stove.

In my opinion, do a search for Fast Food Feng Shui. As this is what you may be doing.

In a proper Feng Shui audit, especially a serious issue like re-location of the stove etc...

As mentioned above, someone has to plot out the proper charts; and analysethem in detail.

Your questions are like the blind leading the blind to answer questions. Lots of empty vessels making lots of noises. But zero facts.

In the past, maybe. But today, the way this type of "hit-and-run" Fast Food Feng Shui is even not Feng Shui. Might as well use another method: Flip a coin: Heads = Yes, Tails = No.

Feng Shui is not about "plucking information" from the air and asking questions based on one's whims and fancies.

If not, as I had mentioned, earlier; might as not turn to Feng Shui. And use a simple tool like a coin: Determine which is your Yes = heads? and No = tails?

There are lots of considerations. Some of the many considerations are enclosed:

1. This includes the best sectors for what in aspecific home for a specific breadwinner

2. The wife's ba zi needs to be considered

3. The flying star(s) for that sector etc.. etc..

What facts have you got?

Else, go and use and use the no-brainer "flip a coin". or the whims and fancy type of Fast Food Feng Shui.

If this was the 1950s to even up to the 1980's a person without many tiers or levels of facts can even be passed-off as someone knowledgeable in Feng Shui.

But in todays world with so many resources; theories, concepts; and the need to collate all the facts; just like zig-saw puzzles into a large holistic map;

Re-locating a stove is serious business. Even more so, since one has in addition to look at the relocation of the sink with all it's ancillaries like the drainage pipes to sewerage system.

Try not to ask "no substance" questions. And wanting to extract some answers from such erh? questions?

As I mentioned, a "no substance" is akin to the blind leading the blind.

Even in the early days of Feng Shui; there were still some tools equivalent to an "X-ray". Not that sophisticated but at least some substance.

It is just like; I am standing next to an MRI machine. And getting asked questions and unable to utilize the MRI machine.

If so, as I had mentioned the HARD TRUTH is why then use such a thing as Feng Shui. Go use that coin and flip it!

Furthermore, there are other common sense factors, some of which I had mentioned in an earlier message. This one I have not mentioned:

For example, it makes a difference if the home is a semi-detached. As a semi-detached has three sides/opening. Usually the front and back are open. And the open side should often preferably to a bedroom or dining area or activity area instead of being wasted if it is occupied by the kitchen. If so this most likely means that the bedroom would be sharing the wall with the other semi-detached - fewer ventilation opening(s) etc....

A major shapes and forms consideration when we site or locate a kitchen in a semi-detached home is where are the "three openings: front, back and which is the side that is an open area".

If so, drawing the same parallel to the kitchen, it was proposed that the lift be sharing the same wall as the other semi-detached home's diving wall:-

http://forum.geomancy.net/phpforum/article.php?bid=2&fid=1&mid=31803&new=

However, if the home is a terrace house then the above is not an additional consideration.

For a bungalow house; the rest of the other concepts as mentioned in an earlier message is considered, first.

Another dimension to look at is the Flying Stars.

Besides other considerations, concepts and principles before making an educated fact-based determination of whether to re-locate a kitchen;

Enclosed is a sterling example of understanding each sector's Flying Stars.

Else we may hear such bad news as:"Mountain Star #8 with Water Star #8 = Prosperity good wealth is wasted in the Kitchen & Utility area"

Thus, if we were to re-locate a kitchen, we may inadvertently located it or waste the good wealth sector location.
