Altar through feng shui perspective

Home feng shui and religion are unrelated, so not having an altar does not make your home feng shui bad.

Altar placement is of paramount importance because it is like inviting a “VIP” to reside in your house. For those with who are having a religion it is a form of respect to place your deity in the most honored sector & not “leftover” space after putting your home furniture.

Fundamentals for Altar placement

1. Place it in the Living Hall unless you have a private room dedicated for worship purposes.
2. Allocate your altar in the most favourable home destiny area. Positive energy is generated when the location is “active”吉凶悔吝者, 生乎動者也”.
3. Minimum height of your altar must be above your shoulder.
4. The altar should face towards an open area e.g. Main Door or Window. If given a choice for both directions, one can redefine it by facing towards an auspicious 生旺方 direction. In period 8 is either NE direction or South direction, forthcoming period is 9.
5. Ensure that your altar is 稳  stable 定 motionless (not along passageway)  靠 supported by a solid or false wall.
6. Place it within the House quiet location 安静 away from television, audio, electrical equipment 声杀 or router 磁电煞
7. Size of the Altar proportional to your house.
8. Keep the Altar clean and bright.
9. Choose an auspicious date to “commence” the God worship e.g. shift in dates given by your feng shui master.

1. Do not have a fish tank or water feature above (淋头水) or below (割腳水) or beside the altar. i have seen some decorations where the God is inside the koi pond, that is really bad.
2. Do not place it in the path of passage way 通道-动线 e.g. corridor, walkway of the house, because worshiping God is supposed to be in a tranquil place.
3. Do not place it beside the Main Door (动方) or any bedroom door (人位) or any “entrance/opening” e.g. kitchen opening
4. Do not have any rubbish beside or under or inside the altar.
5. Do not suspend your Altar in mid-air due to space constraints.
6. Do not place it facing the toilet door 孤陰 or bedroom door or kitchen 燥陽 opening.
7. Do not worship to many Gods and it becomes overly crowded. Some clients mixed different religion together which in my opinion is disrespectful.
8. Do not place it directly opposite (180 degree) a mirror or clock.
9. Do not place it where the wall is shared with the toilet (污水) or kitchen (燥火) or staircase/walkway.
10. Do not put it under an overhead beam 横梁. Beam that is adjoining to the edge of wall is not overhead beam.
