According to Feng Shui concepts, the main door is considered as the mouth of the
house. This is where the 'Chi' flows into the house. The orientation of the main
door will decide whether the 'Chi' that flows in is auspicious or otherwise whereas the
sector housing the main door will determine whether it is an auspicious sector to
locate the door. A further enhancement feature for the main door is to have the
door open to an auspicious width and height. This is normally done by adopting
the good measurements of the Feng Shui ruler.
Some of the good measurements are :-
- 106 to 109 cm width / 218 cm height
- 124 to 134 cm width / 218 cm height
- 150 to 155 cm width / 218 cm height
- 167 to 177 cm width / 218 cm height
- 193 to 198 cm width / 233 cm height
- 210 to 218 cm width / 261 cm height
- 232 to 241 cm width / 283 cm height
- 254 to 262 cm width / 303 cm height
Locating the main door in an inauspicious sector will result in the magnitude of
the positive 'Chi'‘ being affected even though the orientation is auspicious.
Similarly, aligning the door in an auspicious orientation even though the sector
is inauspicious will help boost whatever limited positive energies or 'Chi' in
the house. Therefore aligning the orientation of the door is often construed as
enhancement or expansion of the 'Chi' of the door. It is this expanded 'Chi'
that moves around the house, interacting and reacting with the various sectors
and features of the house, thus giving rise to certain phenomenon, tangible or
intangible but with great influence on the lives of the occupants .
Ultimately, the best scenario is to have an auspicious orientation coupled with a
good location/sector for the main door. Under such circumstances, great good
fortunes, harmony and wealth luck will be abundant for the occupants if the other
sectors in the house are properly activated.
The above house is facing an auspicious orientation or direction.
Thus opening the main door at sector A is deemed most auspicious.
As the sector and location of the main door can be chosen to suit the house,
so can the orientation of the house whereby the alignment of the door is 'adjusted'’
or realign to face the exact positive orientation or 'Jin Sien'. This exercise will allow
the full extent of the positive energies to flow into the house, thus bringing good tidings
to all occupants of the house especially so if the door is located in the 'Sheng Chi' or
success direction of the man ( husband) of the house as the main door will have a direct
influence on his fortunes and not so much the bedroom and the kitchen which will have
a direct influence on the woman (wife) of the house.
There are altogether 118 exact orientations or Jin Sien in a 360 degree radius or LO Pan.
I am only pinpointing a few here as many of the other Jin sien are deemed to be too
close to very bad orientations which places the margin of error very highly probable
and therefore requires the expertise and experience of a reputable Feng Shui master to
