# Feng Shui – Front door direction – How do I know?

Ok with a compass right? Well the actual question is – which side of the door am I considering here? I mean according to what I read, my front door should be a South door. Ok, but how do you tell? I mean if I face my front door from the inside I am facing south, if I face my front door from the outside I am facing North. How do I know what direction my front door is? Do you take it from what direction you are walking up to the door from outside?
Also, If using Feng Shui my head is supposed to face direct West when I sleep. Ok, now the question is how do you face west while sleeping? Does this mean your body is in an east (head) / East (toe) direction, or is it the other way around?

1. my front door should be a South door. Ok, but how do you tell? I mean if I face my front door from the inside I am facing south> right.
if I face my front door from the outside I am facing North > wrong.
How do I know what direction my front door is? > location of door; get a blueprint or a house plan of your house; get the center point of the house (usually if your plot of land where your house is a rectangle or a square, then the intersecting point of 2 diagonal lines is the center of house); then from this point you should superimpose a compass and know where is the directions (north, south, east, west) based on the compass or use google earth. but in fengshui, this is precise to a half a degree.

> facing for office/ living room: the direction we face when we watch tv or while we sit at our desks
> facing while sleeping: the direction we face when we sit up while on bed – meaning our feet points to the direction when we are lying down. if you know 8 mansions, it is preferable to face our beds in a favorable direction that is sandwiched by 2 favorable directions, that way, when we toss and turn at night we’ll still be facing at the safe directions. but you should note that these so called favorable directions can only influence our attitudes, they do not attract wealth or health into our lives.
> and there is really no short cuts, you really need a professional to do the calculations to know which specific direction your front door must face to have that wonderful life you’ve been wanting.

2. Very simple!!! when you open the door and stand in your doorway, what direction are you facing? if you are facing south,then it’s a south-facing door..if the you are facing north, it’s a north-facing door, and so on……as for the bedroom question, ‘facing’ west means just that; your head should be facing west, which means your feet would be facing east…

3. The facing direction of your home is when you use a compass inside your home (and at the center of it), and the direction outwards that your door points to.
Sleeping direction is determined by where your head points.

4. How is it very simple, bg43214? If I stand in the doorway “walking into the house,” I’m facing one direction. And if I stand in the doorway “walking out of the house,” I’m facing another. So, should I be walking in or out, when I determine direction?
