Front Door open to Feng Shui

Front Door open to Feng Shui

In Feng Shui, front doors are vital to the energy that comes into our home. They are the “mouths of chi” and call in energy, welcome energy and keep it moving. I dedicate a lot of time to discussing front doors in our professional program for just that reason – they are critical pieces of the puzzle to the house’s story. This also applies if the front door is not used that often in the case of the attached garage. But they are still important!

No doubt I got you thinking of your own front door. With the seasons changing, now is the perfect time to take a look at what’s happening there and take a shift. Here are some starting ideas:

 

  • Add a windchime, bell, or other sound element to “call in” what you’d like (opportunity, job, relationship, wealth, helpful people)
  • Add something with movement like a flag or whirligig to “move” in a new direction
  • Add flowers, new door mat, or lantern to renew the energy that could be stagnant from the dormancy of winter
  • Paint the door a color you love that is different from anything else on the house so it stands out. This is your calling card to the world, and let them know you are ready for what’s ahead. (Extra note: although red is a traditional color, painting the door a color you LOVE is always our recommendation. If that’s red, go for it!)
  • Add seating (as long as it doesn’t block the door) inside to invite opportunities to stay awhile
  • Use it so it gains momentum – get the mail, leave through that door to go for a walk.

How the Art of Feng Shui Can Work for You

 Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art which is a belief that people all over the world have incorporated in their day to day lives. The most common implementation of feng shui happens inside of homes. Although, it has evolved to being useful within business and office environments as well.

This art involves a compass known as the feng shui color compass. Although, it is far more complex than just colors. It has the primary and secondary directions that all compasses wiWest. What makes this compass so different from a generic one is that each direction has a color along with an element which corresponds to it.

This compass can be used to bring about positive energies into your home or office environment which you feel you lack and might be needing. This could be anything, such as health, happiness, wealth and so much more.In order to understand the feng shui compass and how it can create healthy homes and businesses, here are a few examples:

  • North

The element belonging to this direction is Water and the colors are blue and black. In your home, or your office, the north direction should focus on these specific colors and incorporate the element of water. For example, the north side of your environment would be the perfect place to have a waterfall. Successfully implementing this directions element and color will bring in career luck in life.

  • South

Fire is the element belonging to the Southern direction and along with it, the color is red. A feng shui consultant would suggest that this direction of your work or home environment should represent this element and color. It could be through the paint on your walls that are red and/or represent the fire element. If you’re looking to build more of a positive reputation, bring fame for yourself or your business, then this is the direction to focus on.

  • East

The color corresponding to this direction is green and the element is wood. If followed, it would lead to health and focus on the wellbeing of the aspects of a family. If this is a change which you need then it would be helpful to invest in plants and greenery no matter which space you’re in.

  • West

This direction, for a healthy home and business, can bring in the positive energies leading to creativity and luck in children. This is beneficial for both businesses and homes as creativity can help individuals and businesses. For example, if your business is lacking the creative element in order to grow, this direction will do the trick. To do so, the element of metal should be incorporated along with the colors of white, gold and silver.

Those were all just a few examples, there are still four more directions that are a part of feng shui which can service your home or business to make the fortune of your life much better.

Whether it be to bring in good fortunes or just for cluster clearing, feng shui is a unique yet effective way to bring in changes.
