It’s not enough to get your front door Feng Shui ready. It may sound shocking, but it’s true. Yes, it should be in great condition and open easily and inviting. BUT…
*Check to see what the path to the door looks like. Is there a beautiful tree, but it’s branches have grown over and it’s hard to get past or under them while walking to the door.
*Is your door visible from the street?(If not due to direction or angle…there are fixes for that including lighting, flags, etc).
*What’s your curb appeal? Are your street numbers easy to see? Does all the lighting work? (Is there lighting?)
*Are there hazards such as a hose across a sidewalk, or a broken pathway? Are there pots or decor or seating that make navigating to the door a bit challenging?
So, yes, there’s more to the mouth of chi than a beautiful front door.
Another thing to consider is in what gua is your front door located? For rectangular or square shapes, the door is often in either
- Helpful People and Travel
- Career, or
- Knowledge and Self-Cultivation
Knowing the gua means you can add extra boosts with regard to that gua to make the outside reflect the inside. Many people like a black door if the gua opens at Career; or a water feature outside the door (with water flowing toward the structure). Helpful People might lend you to placing an angel structure or wind chime near the entrance. These boosts are personal changes that each home owner can select from their personal arsenal for welcoming amazing Feng Shui. Some will also consider facing directions while discovering their front door energy.
If your door happens to be in another gua, say your structure is not rectangular and is oddly shaped or maybe a U-shape so that your front door is in the Center gua, there are still tips and tricks you can use. The important thing with odd shaped spaces is to balance out the bagua map and fill either intentionally or physically any missing guas.
