Know the Danger

Pay close attention to all interior and exterior elements that may be threatening, especially those that can deplete all eight life situations simultaneously. Check those that exist in your home. Knowing what may be affecting you every day will help you maintain your strength and power.

If you need help to correct any of the design details listed below, please let us know. We are here to help.

  • A building on the side of a steep slope may present danger that permeates the lives of all its occupants.
  • A building that rests on the top of an overhang, or outcropping of rock, may instill occupants with a sense of power. However, the power may take everyone to the edge, creating overwhelming danger that threatens every activity.
  • If a building is too close to a river or other body of water, “foundations” may be undermined. Many areas of life may crumble.
  • Carefully place a building on a diamond-shaped lot, for a poor placement may create an all-out disaster. Orient the house with its front door parallel to a side, not a corner. Do not place the entry to the lot on a corner.
  • Avoid sharp or prickly plants at the front door for they may invite scoundrels whose nefarious deeds can destroy the life of an individual, family, or organization.
  • A master bedroom, or office, that rests on the “knife edge” of a “cleaver-shaped” house may subject the occupants to the steely edge of life. The lives of all the occupants may be destroyed. This can be especially difficult if the bed or desk also rests directly on the edge, or if the bedroom or office is also a “cleaver” shape with the bed or desk on the edge.
  • The door of a bedroom that opens directly to the top of a stairway can portend terrible bad luck for the occupants. The situation is made worse if the steps then lead directly out a door to the outside. Any good luck will move down the stairway and out the door. In addition, danger can walk boldly in, up the stairs, and enter quickly into the bedroom. You can imagine the impact on the occupants if the bed is also in line with the door. Triple trouble!  Bad luck, danger, and restlessness, all of which can dramatically affect all areas of life.
  • Correct splits and “knife edges” for they can lead to conflict, even violence.
  • Correct the placement of bed, desk, or stove in line with a door.
  • Correct the placement of a stove back to back with a bed for it may portend an unexpected disaster such as a fire, auto accident, burglary, or the appearance of a dastardly scoundrel.
  • Check the bedroom for both electric and magnetic fields, for they can increase stress and irritability.
  • Ask about dangerous predecessor problems.
My list of design details that can simultaneously deplete all eight guas is 60 pages. Above I highlighted some of the details most associated with danger. The 60 pages break down into other categories as well. Here they are for you to consider as you begin a list of your own.
  • An imbalance at the front door
  • An imbalance in the center
  • An imbalance of the Five Elements
  • Bad Luck
  • Conflict
  • Confusion
  • Exhaustion
  • Illness
  • Unexpected events
  • Leaks
  • Loss of opportunity
  • Loss of personal power
  • Overwhelm
  • Stagnation
  • Struggle
  • And, as always, the category of “Other”
My list was created as a guide for architects and designers who want to understand how an element of design might affect the lives of their clients, for Feng Shui practitioners who are searching for the reasons why life unfolds as it does, and for all of us who have felt the spirit of a dwelling slip tragically away.
I hope you will begin a list of your own as you continue to tap into our Small Bites and Small Bite Bundles.
