You may not even be aware that when you walk into your home you bring a in tail wind of energies behind you — your own, plus those energies that are outside your front door waiting to come in.
Energies, like people, have personalities. Some energies bring peace and harmony, and others are pure mischief makers. Knowing what energies are present in and around your home, before you open the front door, and what energies you need more of, to create the perfect home environment for you, can be achieved through good feng shui.
Create a Supportive Environment
Does your home environment support you?
- Do you come home and immediately feel on edge, or are you bathed in peace and tranquility the minute you walk in your front door?
- Are your family members are constantly bickering, or does everyone get along?
- Does your thinking seem muddled when you’re home, or is it clear and focused?
- Do you toss and turn in bed and struggle to get the rest you need, or do you regularly enjoy a great night’s sleep?
An environment that supports you mixes the best of what you bring with best of what’s present. It keeps the flow of good energy moving within your home, and neutralizes the energies that are not so favorable.
What Kind of Chi is Coming in Your Front Door?
Your front door is where the chi (energy) enters, and starts the flow of energy. Good or bad.
I use special tools to measure the chi inside and around your home. As a feng shui practitioner I want to know what kind of energy is present, and how it responds, or does NOT respond to you.
Years ago a dear friend admonished me. I was rushing about, doing 10 things at once when she said, “Judy, whatever you have going on with be magnified, 50 times, before you walk in that door. So whatever energies you are bringing in, you’ve got to own them. You have to slow down. You have to stop, and ask yourself, ‘What am I hooked into?’”
She was right. I needed to stop and breath, and ask, ‘What do I want to walk into? What kind of energies do I want to bring in?’
That’s good feng shui!
Whether you’re entering your home, your office, home office, or even a hospital, school, or other public space, knowing how to engage yourself and your environment will make a huge difference in the quality of your life.
Change Your Environment and Change Your Life
An ideal home environment should support all the things that interest you.
For example, my house is an office by day, and my home by night.
To accommodate my needs, I have multiple doors, and multiple windows. This sets this up my home to be both a home and office, plus place to entertain. It’s been very successful, because I’ve taken the time think through how I wanted my house to support me.
Choosing where to put my front door was an important decision. I needed to get the right facing direction to set the pattern of the chi flowing, and have it compatible with my own chi.
When You Can’t Change the Direction of Your Front Door
Using my favorite feng shui instruments to measure chi, I just improved the energy on a magnificent home in Canada. My clients have a young family and moved into their dream home, but things just didn’t feel right. Even my clients’ business dealings weren’t going as well, as before their move.
When I did their feng shui, we discovered it was not a good thing for them to be going in and out of their home through the garage. Their front door had far better chi, but they never used it.
The solution was very simple. They still use their garage to enter and exit their home, but not all time time. We also moved some plants, added a beautiful water fountain, and they make sure to use the front door at least once a day.
So, whether your home was built years ago, or you live in a townhouse or condo, rest assured there are things you can do to improve the flow of energy in and around your living space.
