door placement


Door location and its surrounding critically affect the Feng Shui of a house, especially its wealth aspect.  Below is a list of “wealth-losing doors” based on Form Feng Shui.  How these doors affecting wealth losses is not discussed here to keep this blog short. door1

WEALTH-LOSING DOORS

  1. Door facing a corridor (inside a building) or road:  this is also called “heart-piercing sha” (一剑穿心 ).
  2. Door facing a downward or upward stair:  this is called “wealth retreating stair” (退财梯).  Downward stair leaks wealth whereas upward stair loses wealth opportunities to others.
  3. Door facing an elevator:  this is called “qi or energy absorbing stair” (吸气梯).  Qi or wealth energy of a house or apartment is “drawn” away by the elevator.
  4. Two or more doors in a straight-line to end of house or backdoor/ window:  Wealth energy from outside goes straight to outside of house.
  5. Door is too narrow or small, thus limiting wealth energy flow into the house.
  6. Door is damaged, broken or has cracks:  this is called “qi-leaking door” (漏气门) and implying leaking wealth.
  7. See-three door” (三见门):  “Three” here means seeing toilet, kitchen and mirror when entering through the door.  All are not good for wealth energy.

Remedies for these doors are mostly using screen doors.  Consult a Feng Shui practitioner or take my Form Feng Shui course for remedies.

We are still in Feng Shui Period 8, but Period 9 will arrive in 4 years.  So it all depends on if you plan to move within 4 years or not OR if you want to maximize your wealth and career luck.  Here are the options:

If you want to maximize your wealth luck and move within 4- 5 years.  Choose a northeast facing door.  Move to a south facing door after 2023.

If you hate moving and want a permanent home with a 20 years best wealth luck after 4 years,  choose a south facing door.

A student emailed me this a few days ago: “I read about “green” tilting on your blog. Is this covered in your door fengshui course?

Aging catches up with me, I lost track of what I have written last month and not to mention those written years ago.  I have asked this student for the link of the original article, as shown below:

http://kenlaifengshui.blogspot.com/2013/02/the-latest-feng-shui-hammer-tilt-o-matic.html?m=1

This article was about door-tilting craze in south-east Asia.  I had bragged about my door-tilting without physically tilting the door and called the technique “green tilt“.

My last “green tilt” was done in Singapore in 2006 in a rental property.  My client rented one unit out of the whole building and felt uncomfortable with the energy in the house.  He thought the house might be “unclean”.

Classic fix for situation like this without involving religion is to create an auspicious main entrance.  The auspicious qi will make whatever entities uncomfortable and stay away.

The problem was:  this is a rental unit and tenant is not authorized to physically modify the door location.

So the only alternative is to do a “green tilt“.  No religious stuff involved.  Material cost is almost zero. The door is 100% unchanged but the angle was somehow changed to bring in the auspicious qi.

A few years later, this client moved to another place.  His dog suddenly barked fearfully as if seeing some “visitors” when he  took down the “green tilt” item.  Dogs can see ghosts and spirits.  The house reverted back to former energy state that is attractive to other “entities”.

“Ken, are you going to tell us the ‘green tilt’ secret?” 

The only clue I can give you is that the method is based on one of the Feng Shui systems in my “Practical Door Feng Shui for Wealth” course.  Many Feng Shui masters and carpenters may lose significant income if this “green tilt” method is made public.  I cannot afford to owe them this giant karma debts.

My advice would be: avoid door-tilting, especially if this is a residence.

buildingWhen doing Feng Shui audit, the most critical part is figuring out the “facing” and “sitting” of the house because this determines the energy distribution within the property.

“Sitting” is also called “mountain” in Feng Shui terms.  This obviously implying the “back” of the house.  “Facing” is the angle measured based on the “sitting” of the house.

However, how to define “facing” and “sitting” is not this simple.  The topic remains a “hot potato” in Feng Shui circle.

Approaches to facing and sitting:

  • Using door location as facing– the opposite of door facing will be the sitting.
  • Using mountain or back-support (buildings at the back) to determine facing– door location may not be the opposite side of mountain.
  • Using the “yang-est” side like big open space or ocean or the side with most street traffic as facing– even the door may be at the back of this “facing”.
  • For Qi-Men-Dun-Jia Feng Shui (non-divination type)– door location is very flexible and can be located in any trigram or palace.

For multiple storeys building with multiple tenants:

  1. Using the main entrance of the building as the facing,  the opposite of door facing will be the sitting— all the units/ apartments will use the same sitting/ facing.
  2. Using the main door location of individual unit/ apartment as the facing,  the opposite of door facing will be the sitting.
  3. Using the “yang-est” side (side with most windows/ balcony) of individual unit/ apartment as the facing,  the opposite side will be the sitting.
  4. Combination of #1 and 3 with this rule:  For storeys 1 to X (“X” usually is10+) storey, use rule #1 and after “Xth” storey, use rule #2.  The rationale is “Xth” below storeys will be more affected by earth energy and “Xth” above will be affected more by “heaven” or star energy.

There are numerous arguments on which method is more “correct” using how “qi” or energy travels and moves around a house.  For example, the argument against using the yang-est side of a highrise apartment as facing:  qi must be carried by people into the apartment.  People walk through building main entrance, take the elevator and walk to their apartment door.  They do not and cannot walk into their apartment through the balcony high above ground.

I have deliberately skipped the argument on whether “facing” OR “sitting” is more important to keep this short.

Regardless of the arguments, most schools think their method is the best!  This is why if you hire Feng Shui practitioners from different schools, you may get totally opposite readings if facing/ sitting measurement methods are different.

The term “ghost-gate” (鬼门) exists long before the term “Feng Shui” was coined.  You can find this term in the ancient text of Yi-jing.

Ancient text claims that “ghost-gate” is in northeast or Gen trigram, where spirits or ghosts entering or leaving.  Ancient people like to build temples on this location to facilitate spiritual communications.

Modern views do not think ghost-gate is really ghost-ridden, but the energy here is very “yin“.

There are two types of ghost-gate line.  The line at the center of northeast region (Gen trigram) is called “outward ghost-gate line表鬼门. The other one at the southwest (Kun trigram) is called “inner ghost-gate line里鬼门.

These two angles have the most “yin” energy within 360 degrees.

In terms of Feng Shui, doors, toilet seat, stove, fridge, air-conditioner, washing machine, hi-fi, TV, wealth position……, should not be placed on this ghost-gate line.  Inauspicious events or misfortune may happen if items with movements are placed on these ghost-gate lines.

Negative events will happen to male owner mostly if outward ghost-gate line is violated and to woman owner if inner ghost-gate line is provoked.

Negative effects will be more severe if main door sits on ghost-gate line.  It will be the worst if this door is also facing a T-junction or other form-sha energy like a “sickle sha” or “heart-piercing sha“.

Note:  The following is an excerpt from “Practical Door Feng Shui for Wealth” video correspondence course.

WHY DOOR IS IMPORTANT?

Door, especially main door, is where people walk in and out, brings in good or bad energies.  Door is like the nose and mouth of a human being— needs nose to breath in fresh air and mouth to eat food to absorb life-sustaining nutrients.round door

Human being is smart, s/he can move his nose to breathe in fresh air and stay away from pungent smells; and goes where clean and good food is available.

However, the main door of a house, a building, an office or factory, is not “smart” or moving by itself area with good energy or qi.  It all depends on the owner’s luck if s/he set the door in a good energy region.

“Auspiciousness and misfortune are attributed to movements”, written in Yi-jing.  Luck, be it good or bad, is due to movement in the right place or wrong place.  To increase your prosperity, you add move movements in areas with good energy (like 8-white earth star during Period 8) and avoid movements in areas with bad energy (like 5-yellow disaster star).

Door is important because it is the linkage between outside and inside energies.  It is also the platform where most movements occur when people walk in or out of the house.  As stated in previous paragraph, movement at any region of the house, depending on the nature of energy in that region (positive vs. negative) will affect the luck of its occupants.

So if main door has good energy, then occupants will enjoy good fortune.  If otherwise, they will suffer misfortune.  We have a popular saying in feng shui, “If the main door of a house worth 1000 pieces of gold, then the house only worth 4 pieces.” door_FS

Here is what Master Chiang Dai Xiong, the famous Xuan Kong master who had written “Water Dragon Classic”, commented about the significance of door:

Main door controls the prosperity and future of a family.”

“Bedroom door controls the lives of a couple.”

“You see effects after modifying a door.”

Door is the skeleton of a house and paths are the tendons. Both should be auspicious to bring prosperity.  If door is auspicious but paths are not, then the consequences are still negative.”

The basic principle of door placement is simple:  put the main door in region with current timely water star (like 8 during Period 8) with Flying Star or put it in a Period 8 (for current period) gua line.

Paths” means the roads leading to doors. Road should bring in “timely” or auspicious qi or energy of current Period, just like the door.

Before we start different theories of door placement, ……………..
