Which front Entrance should I use? by Feng Shui LI

In the past two days I received phone calls from Youtube viewers asking the same question. "I have two main entrances leading into my house, which one should I use when laying out my space according to the Ba-gua?" This can be a tricky set up but if you follow the Feng Shui principles and your own intuition, all will fall into place.
The above diagram illustrates a Harlem NY brownstone apartment layout. Most brownstones give you the option to have a front and 'back' entry point. The easiest way to locate the main entrance from a western perspective of Feng Shui is to recognize what door you always choose when entering into your apartment. That is reading the energy and listening to intuition.
Another option is to utilize the compass method of Feng Shui. Using your date of birth, combined with your personal auspicious direction will help you find the entry point into your home. Feng Shui has so many methods you can utilize individually or blend together, so it's best to investigate and try them out to see which works best for you.
Layout of a Westchester New York home with possible two front entrances
This is another example of having two front entrances. This is a layout of a house in Westchester NY. The situation is that they have an enclosed porch but once you turn right, you face the actual front door that leads into the entire house. So which entrance should you use to start laying out your space according to the Ba-gua?
Traditionally you should use the actual front door that leads into the home but if intuition says that does not feel right then switch to the entrance that leads into the enclosed porch. But ideally you would use the actual front door entrance. If the porch was not there, that would be what you use to layout the space.
