Your kitchen can affect the health and energy of your houseguests, as well. After all, it is often the gathering place when you hold family get togethers and parties with friends.
First, make sure that your kitchen is kept clean and free of clutter. Taking just a few minutes each day to tidy up your kitchen will go a long way toward promoting positive energy. Make sure that appliances and countertops are kept clean at all times, and that spices, utensils, and other commonly used items are kept organized and put away.
Ideally, you should be able to see the entrance to the kitchen when you are standing at your stove cooking. In Feng Shui the stove is considered to be very important. It represents the preparation of food and therefore nourishment, health and well-being of the family. It also represents wealth and abundance. If you find yourself with your back to the entrance when you are standing at your stove, you can place a mirror at the back of the stove so that when you look into it you can see the door behind you. A microwave above the stove (although not technically good from a Feng Shui perspective) can actually help in this case if you can look in the glass door of the microwave and see the entrance to the kitchen behind you.
