Stair­cases – prob­lems and reme­dies

Hav­ing a stair­case near the en­trance of a house can cause the Chi to rush up and down in an un­set­tling man­ner

Stair­cases have al­ways been a con­tro­ver­sial topic in Feng Shui. Some be­lieve them to be un­lucky. How­ever, it is not that stair­cases in them­selves are bad Feng Shui but their shape, ma­te­rial, lo­ca­tion and de­sign prop­er­ties can dis­turb the in­her­ent en­ergy com­po­si­tion of your space. For ex­am­ple, as per the Bagua, the south­east and east sec­tor is ruled by the wood el­e­ment. Thus, plac­ing a metal stair­case here would slow down fi­nan­cial and ca­reer growth prov­ing to be a recipe for dis­as­ter.(Ac­cord­ing to the de­struc­tive cy­cle of the 5 El­e­ment The­ory, metal cuts and de­stroys wood). Sim­i­larly, con­crete stair­cases are ideal in the west and north­west Bagua area of the home or of­fice.

Stair­cases with good Feng Shui ac­cu­mu­late and evenly dis­trib­ute the Chi among the dif­fer­ent floors or lev­els there- by at­tract­ing good for­tune into your home. They are con­duits that can ei­ther con­struc­tively chan­nel the es­sen­tial life force or ob­struct and drain wealth and re­sources.Watch out for th­ese common Feng Shui prob­lems when it comes to stair­cases and reme­dies for the same are:

Prob­lem: Stair­case lo­cated in the cen­tre of your home (es­pe­cially spi­ral or metal­lic ones) are un­lucky. They di­vide the home and its oc­cu­pants caus­ing rifts, con­flicts and dif­fer­ences. It is also re­spon­si­ble for the loss of good for­tune.

Cure: The fo­cal point re­spon­si­ble for the del­i­cate yin-yang bal­ance is the cen­tre or ‘heart’ of the house. To slow down the pace of this frag­mented and chaotic en­ergy, place suit­able wind chimes at the base of the stair­case. This will bal­ance the el­e­ments and guide the Chi har­mo­niously.

Prob­lem: Stair­case aligned with or start­ing at the main front door of the house. The front en­trance is the ‘mouth of the Chi’ that ab­sorbs max­i­mum en­ergy into your space. A stair- case right next to it causes the Chi to rush up and down in an un­set­tling man­ner ev­ery time the door opens. This stresses the oc­cu­pants, caus­ing anx­i­ety and neck re­lated is­sues.

Cure: Draw away at­ten­tion from the stair­case by in­stalling a non-metal­lic dec­o­ra­tive fig­urine/statue or a big pot­ted plant nearby. How­ever, if this is not pos­si­ble due to space re­stric- tions, then hang well en­er­gised crys­tals from the ceil­ing be­tween the door and the stair­case.

Prob­lem: Long stair­cases are common en­er­getic li­a­bil­i­ties in du­plex apart­ments or build­ings with stair­cases ac­ces­si­ble from the ex­te­rior. Such stair­cases make op­por­tu­ni­ties and good luck take a longer time to come by.


Light up the stair­way with small up lights along each stair. Wrap­ping an ar­ti­fi­cial green vine or creeper around the rail­ing will help speed up those pend­ing pro­mo­tions and com­bat other un­fore­seen de­lays.


The pos­i­tive en­ergy in your house can mul­ti­ply if the stair­cases are built in the right cor­ners
