5 Property Feng Shui Features To Look Out For
Source : iMoney
Date : 3 Nov 2014
by Dato Joey Yap

Feng Shui today is very much a word that people would associate as a practice in understanding if a home, property or general area is considered 'good' or 'bad', 'auspicious' and 'inauspicious'. These terms get thrown around so much so that we tend to lose logic and rationale in the rush to make Feng Shui more approachable. That is why it is always important to understand why Feng Shui is not just about making money or enhancing 'good luck'. For starters, there is a need to ask three simple questions when studying a property and its land - what exactly is bad, how bad it is, and why is it bad to begin with.

More often than not, knowing something to be simply good or bad creates a lot of misunderstanding, paranoia or fear. That is not what Feng Shui is all about. Rather than delve into the fear of how having the wrong interior design in your house will affect the Qi, we shall examine five features common to every home and what is undesirable for your future or current property.

The Main Door

After the environment, the Main Door, along with the Kitchen and Bedroom, form the Three Important Factors in Feng Shui. These are the three main features of the home and property that any Feng Shui consultant must evaluate. The Main Door is an important key feature here as it is essentially the Qi mouth of the house and/or property. When evaluating the Main Door, do not just look into the property, but look out as well. Simply stand at the Main Door, look out and check that you do not see any negative forms within sight from that position.

If you see a tall structure like a lamp post within the boundaries of the Main Door, then you have a possible case of Piercing Heart Sha present. This can affect the health of the occupants of the property and their careers. Another negative feature to avoid is when looking out of the Main Door and seeing a narrow gap between houses, usually as a result of two houses built close together. This is a mini version of Tian Zhan Sha (Crack in the Sky Sha). It is a highly undesirable external form and you should avoid selecting this type of property altogether.

Another negative feature is when the Main Door is covered by thick foliage from trees and the property is cast in perpetual shadow. This creates Yin Sha, an undesirable feature that affects the mental health of the residents and you should avoid properties of this sort.


Since the kitchen represents life and health for the occupants living in the property, it is essential that the residents only consume good food to ensure great health for the occupants. A badly located kitchen usually denotes poor health for the residents. Hence the kitchen should never be located in the central place or the Heavenly Heart of the home. Having a kitchen here is like giving the property a constant heartburn, creating instability and long-term nagging health problems. The kitchen should always be in of the side sectors of the house, never in the center.

Also ensure that the stove is not located in front of any door entering the kitchen. This is like a mini T-Junction and the Qi will rush through the door, hitting the stove and imbuing the cooked food with Sha Qi. If possible, simply move the stove away from the kitchen door.


Sleeping is an important form of activity which impacts our vitality. Like the kitchen, the bedrooms should be located in suitable sectors, based on the formulas in Eight Mansions, Xuan Kong Da Gua or Flying Stars. Rooms that are round, triangular or oddly shaped with sharp corners should be avoided at all cost. Instead, choose a square room as it can, to some degree, insulate any form of negative Qi that impacts the room.


Look outside the Main Door of a property and observe the location of the drain. Should the drain run parallel to the Main Door, this is a problem known as Cutting Feet Water. This negative Water feature adversely blocks the Qi from entering the property, cutting into the vitality of the Qi in the house. Although this should be avoided at all cost, you will only have a Cutting Feet Water problem if the drain is visible from the Main Door of your property. If not, it should not be a cause for concern.


Most in-demand properties are those with roads that are situated away from extreme noise pollution and heavy traffic. From a Feng Shui perspective, what one needs to watch out for are the curves on the road leading to the property. This is called a Bow Formation and will cut into the flow of Qi into the property. Also avoid properties that have narrow or wide alleys, opposite them. This is because it can cause either a Pulling Nose Qi problem or Sky Crack Sha problem (depending on the type of alley) and this negativity is usually extremely hard to correct.

Other notorious negative features include the T-Junction. Contrary to its unlucky reputation, even non-believers of Feng Shui know better to avoid purchasing properties "hit" by the T-Junction. However, if the T-Junction just misses the property by a margin, you can usually counter any negativity by planting trees or plants to act as a barrier for the bad Qi.

Unless you are financially able to custom-build your dream house, be prepared for the fact that any house will have a Feng Shui problem or two - though you should bear in mind that not every one of them will be a severe issue. You should also be prepared for the fact that sometimes, not every one of these problems can easily be fixed by a consultant. The trick is to find a home without the problems in the first place. Do not give up as with some patience, effort and the right questions, you can find it.
