Color of Front Door

How to determine the direction of your front door is facing?

The first compass reading is taken while you are inside looking out. You are inside your home directly facing your front door. Now, it is very important to take several feng shui compass readings, as often the reading varies because of the interference of electromagnetic fields.

Once you have the feng shui compass reading you will need your floor plan. This will help you accurately find the center, or the heart of the space, often also called the yin-yang point.

From there you will define Bagua, or the feng shui energy map of your space, and will start the journey of changing your life with feng shui!

 There should NOT be a mirror directly facing the front door… this is a really BAD Feng Shui!
