1. Immediately seeing a staircase at the entrance
If you are facing this situation, it will cause your overall luck to decline. In additional, if you can see your toilet immediately from the entrance, it indicate poor health.
Tip: You can place a living plant in this place to eliminate the negative energy.
2. Obstructions at the entrance of your house
If you see a big obstruction like lamp post, big tree or any other obstacles upon going out of your entrance, your house has committed <形煞> that create negative energy that rush into your house, causing a bad environment.
Tip: Similarly, you can place a living plant in this place to minimize the negative energy that is rushing in.
3. Entrance facing directly at the windows
Upon entering the house, if you immediately face the windows, it indicate that energy that is brought in can be easily flow out of the windows. In summary, it means that energy and luck cannot be gathered.
Tip: Place a divider or tall living plant to block the energy from flowing out.
4. House Number Sign must be clean and polished
Keep your house number sign polished because it symbolized the facade of your home. If it is dirty, it might attract slander, gossip or negative feedback of the occupants.

5. Keep the entrance free of clutter
A lot of people like to place things, like golf bag and others at their entrance for the sake of convenience. But always remember to keep your entrance uncluttered. In additional, you should always throw away any postage boxes or garbage that is blocking at the entrance.
6. Do not fill your entrance with toys
