Feng Shui: Dispelling the myth that stove and tap should be far apart, and more!

With your family telling you one thing, and the Internet so many others, it’s hard to know what to believe. Grand Master Vincent Koh, founder of the Singapore Feng Shui Centre, separates fengshui principles from fiction. Mr Koh taught fengshui courses at Singapore Polytechnic, and was awarded the title “Grand Master” by the International Feng Shui Association in 2009.

Q: A window opposite the main entrance will cause all entering qi to go straight through the window, and out of the house. True or false?

A: False. If we follow that logic, one shouldn’t have any windows in his house, to keep all the good qi inside, right? Qi does not travel only in straight lines, like light does. Rather, it has an ebb and flow, and behaves more like air or water. What you need to do is get some form of water feature to disperse the qi throughout all the rooms and corridors of your house, so it doesn’t just accumulate in one area.
