FENG SHUI AND YOUR KITCHEN
Inthe kitchen of your house are present the five elements of Feng Shui: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water and Wood. Fire is represented by burners, the furnace and even the microwave oven. Water is represented by the dishwasher and refrigerator. The earth element is represented by ceramic, marble and granite. The Metal appears in our kitchen and the Wood element can appear in the form of herbs, whose presence is very positive in a kitchen.
It is veryimportant that the kitchen is not in the center of the house. A house with the kitchen in the center area is unacceptable from the point of view of feng shui: the center is equivalent to a person's heart and must be kept quiet, serene and balanced. The kitchen is a place of work and movement, located in the center of the house is equivalent to an agitated and restless heart.
You should alsotake care of the relationship between water and fire. A distance of about 60cm from one another is sufficient to prevent destructive shock elements. Water directly facing the Fire must also be seen as a negative factor in the kitchen, which can affect the health of the people of the house.
Withregard to the refrigerator, it is desirable to follow similar lines, but in this case the tolerance is greater. That is, if possible choose to have the dishwasher or the refrigerator too close or facing the kitchen fires, the lesser evil is the refrigerator.
Avoid the fires are directly facing a door. This generates Sha Chi is transmitted to the food. The beams on the fires or columns in the kitchen project Chi is oppressive and if such a situation should think seriously about changing the kitchen instead.
