Unusual shaped Stone - Avoid placing a stone with an `unusual' shape which may resemble a monster, creature or other odd shape either in the house or in the garden. On the other hand, smooth shaped stone can be placed in the garden to make it more `Yang' e.g. in a Japanese garden.


Is the position of the main entrance door important?

A house should suit the breadwinner. One way to determine this is to look at his best direction using the Eight House Theory or commonly known as his 4 good and 4 bad directions. As a house is considered the equvalent of a person's mouth, if it is facing the breadwinner's auspicious direction, he/she will prosper.

Carpet - If there is a poison arrow pointed at the main entrance door, you can use a semi-circle carpet with a diagram of a sun with radiating spokes from the centre of the carpet. Another alternative is instead to tile the floor with this design. This is a `mild' form of cure and is encouraged if your door immediately faces your neighbour's.

Concave Door - If this is your auspicious direction, you can use a concave door to further increase your luck.

Convex Door - If this is your inauspicous direction, you can install a convex door to deflect away the `bad' intangible force.
