In particular, the kitchen has a special place in Feng Shui. That being said, if the kitchen is located in a good direction for you based on your ‘pa kua number’, then the food prepared and consumed here will be especially beneficial. To know more about your luck with kitchen Feng Shui here are some questions you should ponder on:
Can you see the toilets from the kitchen?
If yes, then this is clearly bad news. Even just a mere view or access to a toilet from the kitchen can draw in the negative air. Fret not though because you can easily counter this by painting the bathroom door red. Also, don’t forget to keep the doors closed at all times. Not only will it be a good defense for your home’s luck aura it is also the hygienic way of living.
Is your fridge stocked or overloaded?
Well-stocked refrigerators are a good sign of abundance and wealth and they symbolize a good feed of positive energy. But be sure to keep the floor of the pantry clean and empty because this keeps energy renewed and flowing. The cycle will continue to be a good feng shui if you keep it stored plenty with the floor untouched.
Is there, at least, two feet of distance between the stove and refrigerator?
Stoves and refrigerators aren’t supposed to be too close together since the refrigerator puts out the fire of the stove which can create financial difficulties in feng shui. If they are next to each other simply put a large wooden cutting board between them, this will balance out the bad forces swirling in.
Do you enter your house through the kitchen often?
If so then stop yourself from doing such. If the first thing you see is your kitchen that means you might have difficulties with overeating. It can be you or a loved one who is struggling with weight but the routine of entering through the kitchen is a bad practice. Try to enter through another door also, it is preferable because you will definitely have an urge to check what’s in your fridge and eat if you enter through the kitchen.
Are there any living organisms present in your kitchen?
Putting some plants in your kitchen will bring in luck since it’s the only thing that survives and doesn’t get butchered for consumption. If there is spare space, it is good to put some plants in the kitchen.
What colour palettes do you use for your kitchen design?
Colours red, brown or white and yellow have corresponding good benefits. Any shade of yellow is excellent for the digestion. Avoid the strong presence of watercolours such as blue or black because they put down the fire Feng Shui element. The two conflicting elements are fire and water, therefore, it is best to keep a balanced level of energy for these two.
Is your kitchen usually clean and clutter free?
Keeping our kitchen to their most proper and hygienic status is a must for attracting good Feng Shui. Places that are seen immediately such as the countertops must be spick and span at all times. As well as the ones that are usually hidden like a place where you display the fruits or the cupboard where you store.
No one is forced to follow the ways of good Feng Shui but to many followers, practicing such will surely foster good luck and positive energies inside a home. Our kitchen is one of the essential parts of our house and it is considered to be the heart of a home for thousands of years, use Feng Shui to keep it a light and happy heart. And with a good practice of Feng Shui, this will ultimately bring in an abundance of well-deserved luck. Hopefully, the aforementioned have satisfied your inquiries on Kitchen Feng Shui.
