When conducting a consultation I require a floor plan of the home that is drawn to scale, along with the age of the building. Once I have this information an extremely accurate compass reading is required. This then enables me to analyse the distribution of energy in the home and will allow me to determine if the home supports wealth, health and relationships. It should also be noted that each home is different and this is dependent on the information just mentioned so your home and that of your next door neighbours may have the same facing direction but if they are built in different time periods or have different floor plans the distribution of energy will be completely different. So what is good for one home could be disastrous for another.
It is important to remember that no home is Feng Shui perfect however the energy at the entrance and in the bedrooms is the most important so if you are unable at this point in time to book in a consultation I have a few tips below regarding the entrance that will encourage more energy into the home and therefore more opportunities.
The energy coming through the door is the single most important factor that will determine how prosperous the occupants will be and if the home supports your ability to make money hence the location of the main door is extremely important. The Feng Shui of your main entrance affects the energy that is entering your home and is regarded as the ‘mouth’ of your house and is a place of transition between the outside and the inside. It should have an area in which the energy can gather and settle before entering your home. We call this area the ‘Ming Tang’ or the ‘bright hall’.
The Ming Tang can be either outside the house or right at the entrance of the house. Ideally, a Ming Tang should be open and unobstructed so that Qi can enter into the house smoothly. The Ming Tang should also be a well-defined area where Qi has a chance to circulate before entering the house. Qi will find it difficult to enter a house with a cramped or cluttered entrance so this therefore leads to missed opportunities.
Examples of a good Ming Tang are:
- A spacious front yard between the curb or road and the front door
- A well-defined and spacious front porch
- An entry hall just inside the front door
General tips for the main entry which will help invite more opportunities into your life are:
- There should be a clear pathway to the main entrance therefore clear any clutter should be removed
- Bushes or overgrown hedges etc also block the Qi from entering so ensure they are well keep and help to frame the pathway to the house.
- It is best if there is nothing in direct alignment with the door such as a tree, telegraph pole or T-junction as this can invite Sha Qi into the home which may cause misfortune to the occupants. Remember the further away an object is the less impact it will have.
- The path to the front door should be wide & spacious & well lit. Curved windy paths leading to the main entrance are considered auspicious.
- Place two wide leaved plants next to the main door to help entice the energy into the home. An example are plants such as peace lilies .
- A beautiful picture placed on the wall opposite the main door is used to encourage the energy into the home and therefore opportunities to come into your life.
- Your main door should always open inwards into a wide space to invite the Qi and therefore opportunities into one’s life.
- Avoid facing a dark, pokey room, an 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.
- You may have read that water features are prosperous at the front of a home. This is actually incorrect as it depends on the distribution of energy and if the unseen energies will benefit from the water. Be very careful placing water features as they could activate negative energies so if you put a water feature in place and you find challenges in your finances – remove it!
