Positive Energy For The Entrance To Your Home
Feng shui is the ancient art developed over 3000 years ago in China that revolves around the placement and design of items and buildings to best receive the most positive flow of energy (chi).
A positive feng shui home is said to bring good energy into your home that can result in the positive flow of money, health and love. Creating a home with positive feng shui can be achieved with just a few environmental changes. I have studied Vastu which is the original name of this art and can also involve dowsing. When the changes are made, even if simple at first you can FEEL the difference in the atmosphere. Everything is energy vibrating at different frequencies.
By implementing the below basic steps you can create more harmony in your home.
The front door is a great place to start and is highly regarded as one of the key indicators to a happy feng shui home. Basically, you want a clear path to your front door to allow the energy (chi) free access to your home.
To create this, you need to remove any rubbish from the front door to the street. This includes pots without plants and shoes. Even if there's a big, old tree in your front yard, if it's blocking the flow of chi to your front door you need to relocate it.
FRONT DOOR COLORS
Your front door may also need to be painted. You want everything spruced up-this is one of the first things you see when you come home and you need it to be uplifting not depressing. Choosing a front door color isn't as simple as "yellow for happy". You need to know the direction your door faces. A simple compass phone app can help here.
EAST FACING - Wood element colors like green or brown.
SOUTH FACING- Red, yellow, purple, orange and pink. These would need to be strong, vibrant colors in keeping with the fire element that the south direction represents.
WEST FACING - White or grey most other earth colors. White or grey represent the metal feng shui element and metal comes from the earth.
NORTH FACING - Blue and black colors to represent the feng shui element of water.
You want to really think about the home from the position of the front door and the energy flowing into the home. Where does the energy go once it's inside? Think of the energy like a beam of traveling light. You don't want this energy to bounce back out as quickly as it came in and if you have a mirror opposite your front door this is going to deflect the energy back out of your home. Likewise, if your front door is directly opposite your back door the energy will flow right out. For really good feng shui, you want the energy to flow freely inside and shared amongst all the rooms in your home. Upon opening your front door, positive chi can be created by a bold and vibrant rug, flowers or art.
Know that feng shui is an ongoing 'art of the home' that needs to be regularly refreshed and updated. Any stagnant area of the home will eventually express itself in areas of your life. To keep things fresh and flowing it's important to clear out any unwanted clutter... and keep it that way. So perhaps grab a donation bag and get rid of the old, unwanted aspects of your life to create a free pathway of chi and energy into your life!
