The flow of “Chi” (energy) between entities is at the center of harmonic life of Feng Shui. The Chi power in your environment influences your frame of mind, passions, physical vigor and your health.
Chi energy carries through the environment by wind, water, the sun’s energy, light and sound. It flows in and out of structures—primarily through doors and windows, but Chi can also register and leave through the walls.
The basic purpose of Feng Shui is to allow you to set yourself where this natural flow of Chi helps you meet your goals and your dreams in life.
Your home must register to the world, “I am ready for success and happiness to find a clear path into my home and into my life.” With that said, where should you start?
Start with the entrance to your home…
The first step is to create a complete, spacious and attractive approach for energy to move freely and flow through your home. When your entry radiates positive energy, it opens the path to your destiny.
Feng Shui promotes the impression that your valuable opportunities arise through the front door. The door is the threshold for all good things to make your way.
You should decorate the formal entry—the area commonly seen from the road. It helps keep your public profile. However, it is possible that you don’t use this portal frequently. The door you use most often is essential in permitting external energy to move inside the home.
If you enter through an alternate opening such as a laundry room, garage or side door, you should evaluate and decorate it with the same positive energy as the formal entrance.
- Create a path leading up to the home that’s as easily accessible as possible. Curved, windy paths leading to the main entrance are promising.
- Trim shrubs; remove items such as litterbins from your driveway or lawn. Let people first see your home, not your problems.
- Notice the paint, roof and landscaping. An area that is complete and well cared for will leave a lasting impression.
- To promote positive energy essence into the home, place two wide-leaved plants next to the main door. Having two on either side of your entry will further stability, good health and will help attract the spirit.
- A pretty picture placed on the wall opposite the main entrance helps to stimulate energy into the house and opportunities come into your life.
- Your main door should always open inwards—into a wide area—to generate Chi and prospects into one’s life.
- The location of the door—with respect to sectors of the home—suggest a priority to the occupants. Therefore, if the entrance is located in the North, you find that employment is a priority to you.
- Avoid facing a dark room, a direct interior staircase, mirror, stove, sink, fireplace, the door of a toilet, laundry, bathroom or bedroom. To remedy this, keep the doors closed or place a screen between the doors.
