How Qi Affects These 6 Sectors Of Your Home

In Feng Shui, your home should protect you, nurture you, and be a sanctuary where you can rest and rejuvenate. It is something that enhances the creation of a comfortable and happy place to live in, and come home to as well as aid you in achieving your goals.

When there are unexplainable instances where you just randomly keep falling sick or your finances are in a constant state of decline, you can get enlightening answers as to why it’s happening by evaluating the Qi in your home.
Qi, if you don’t already know, is the natural energy found in the environment. It is natural and emanates from the natural External Formations such as Mountains and Water. There are only positive and negative Qi. Positive Qi is called Sheng Qi (Growing Qi) which is growing, compassionate, sentimental and harmonious. While, Sha Qi (Killing Qi) is cruel, dead, stagnant, killing or clogged.
For you to get a better understanding of the effects of Qi, you need to first understand how every sector of your home is affected by it. This can be broken down into 6 factors and they are:

1.The Occupants

Occupants are crucial in the practice of Feng Shui. Qi can only be received if there are occupants that reside in the house.

The nature of the problems you face can be determined by the Feng Shui of a property as is the actions you can take to better it.

2.The Positioning of the building

You need to locate the building’s front because that’s where the Qi first enters from. Also make sure to look at the External Forms of a property before focusing on the Internal Forms of the home

2a .Mountains

This is where Qi is generated and it determines the quality of Qi. The quality of the Qi is determined by good quality mountains. The mountain position and the type of mountain itself govern the wealth capacity, potential, and prosperity of the residence.


Collects and carries Qi. A good water placement can foster a good meeting point and collection of Qi.

For example, Lake/ Pond Water is considered good Water formations as Water is usually regarded as peaceful and sentimental. It helps collect Qi at the highest positive energy. The quality of the Water and the current’s flow are important as well because depending on the quality of Water whether low/bad or high/good the Qi gathered there will reflect it. As for the current, it has to be a low almost calm flow.


Roads are considered Virtual Water especially in big cities where Water formations are limited or close to none. When Water is absent around a property, the roads are looked at to fill in the absence.
Virtual Water similar to natural Water formations, in a sense that it carries Qi and brings it either towards or away from your property.

3.     The Facing of the Main door

The Main Door and it’s facing is vital because it’s the Qi Mouth – it’s where the Qi enters from. This is one of the Internal Features that need to be examined to evaluate the Feng Shui of a property.

Its placement is very important because a Main Door with a good placement may have the ability to repel, expel or block negative Qi.

4.     The Bright Hall

This is an empty, open space where Qi collects and settles before it is redistributed around the property. For there to be the feature of the Bright Hall the open space must be visible from the property.

Internal Bright Hall is when there is a space from the entrance of the front door. Meaning to say, from the main door looking into the house there is a visible space, it serves as the Bright Hall.

Remember that this area needs to be tidy and well kept. Its function as the Bright Hall will be less effective if it becomes messy and unkempt: for the simple reason, it becomes harder for Qi to accumulate in that area.

5.The kitchen

It’s a no brainer that food is extremely important for us to be able to function properly daily. As such the place in which it is prepared holds a very important position in Feng Shui. If the Qi in the kitchen is negative it signifies poor health or shortened lifespan for occupants.

The main thing to look at in regards to this area is the placement of the stove and sink. The stove should not face, back or be placed directly in front of a door. This is because the Qi that enters will crash straight into the stove negatively effecting the food prepared.

  1. The Bedroom

This is where you spend 30% of your lives. Activities such as sleeping and resting are important and crucial to your health and liveliness. If the Qi in this area is bad, it would adversely affect you, not only physically but mentally and emotionally as well.

The position of the bed in Feng Shui is very important to ensure you get good quality rest that can make or break your ability to function throughout the day. So, making sure to not place the bed in front of a door (the feet or the head) can help ensure that the Qi entering your room doesn’t crash into the bed disrupting your sleep, in return affecting your health.

Incorporating these simple and basic Feng Shui principles can take you a long way. Bear in mind though, Feng Shui can only work if you do something with the knowledge of it. Without changing the environment and yourself, Feng Shui can not be utilised to its fullest potential.
