Feng Shui is a way of life with ancient Chinese roots. It was originally designed to guide people how they should live in order to attain the best possible health and wellness, but over time it has become an important part of interior design as well – by helping create neater homes that make homeowners happier inside their home. Feng Shui takes common sense practices such as organizing cabinets or putting plants around your home into consideration so you can have houses which are not only more beautiful on the outside, but brings you the positive energy too!
The energy and well-being of your neighborhood and community have a significant influence on your home’s Feng Shui. Take some time to go about the neighborhood and investigate the area around your house.
Do your neighbors appear to take care of their homes and keep them in good condition? If your neighbors’ dwellings are in disrepair, it might have an impact on your Qi (life force).
Avoid homes near dilapidated buildings, vacant lots, and cemeteries, as these are usually full of “Yin” energy that is hostile to life. A house is a space to live in, so it is best to stay away from houses near such places. Instead, surround your home with life, not death.
History of the House
Everything that occurs in a space produces energy vibrations that are recorded in the walls. It’s not just the walls, but also the floor.
If feasible, look into the house’s history to discover if there are any patterns of unpleasant life occurrences. Untimely deaths, divorces, and health issues are a few examples. It is also beneficial to investigate the property’s history (land). If you reside there, the patterns of the home may appear in your life over time.
A T-junction is an intersection where two roads meet in the shape of a “T”. In Feng Shui, it is unfavorable if your house is at the top of the “T”.
Basically, your house is on a street that runs into another street, which directs a lot of energy directly at you. It’s like having a sword or arrow pointed directly at your face. If possible, you should avoid living in a house on a T-intersection.
The flow of Qi from the front door (main door)
When assessing a house, one of the most essential factors to examine is how Qi can flow to the front entrance. The entrance door is referred to as the “mouth of Qi.” It would be through it that you may receive life energy. We want residences with properly marked front entrances that are easy to find.
When analyzing other aspects of a possible house, consider the walk from the street to the front door. Is it difficult to locate, are there impediments in the way, or are trees or vegetation obscuring the view? Is the front door hidden to the side or back of the house? Is there more than one formal entry door? Basically, evaluate whether there is any confusion for visitors when they arrive at your house. If you (or your future guests) can’t locate the front entrance, it signifies that positive energy and possibilities will struggle to enter your property too.
Sharp angles surroundings the house
In Feng Shui, the poison arrow (Sha Qi) refers to furniture or architectural elements that form sharp angles. Wall corners are one of the most common examples of sharp edges and angles that disrupt the normal flow of Qi. Columns and pillars are other forms of poison arrows. Their presence is a sight for sore eyes for some. Others, on the other hand, are unconcerned. For some, it may elicit a feeling of uneasiness. The power of this poison arrow is affected by its height and proximity. This sharp edge/angles object should not be in front of your front door or window. Even if it is, as long as it is far away from you, you will be fine. If it is to the side of your front door or window and does not form a straight line, its effect on you will be modest too.
Finally, always get your new home off to a great start with the best Feng Shui practices.Remember that “Harmony” is heavily emphasized throughout the home-buying process.
