The Feng Shui of the Front Door is an essential requirement for a home to have good energy.
Positive chi (life force) needs to collect abundantly in front of the entrance so that when the door opens it comes into the home.
When people first come to your home they look for the house number, but once that house number has been identified, their eyes will turn to the front door.
If they can’t identify where the front door is at a glance, your home has bad Feng Shui.
What’s in a Door?
A door is an object that that divides realms. It’s a portal between different realities.
Fairy tales, myths and religious stories talk about the magic qualities of doors.
Our language equates doors with opportunities.
In English you say, “When one door closes another one opens.”
In Spanish there’s more optimism, “When one door closes, hundreds open.”
The Front Door
The reality on the outside of your front door is something to which you have to adapt because there’s very little out there that you can control.
You can’t control how many street lights there are between your home and your work place, for example, or how many of them will turn red on your way there.
The reality inside of your home is where your power resides. If you give away this power to chaos, disorder, disorganization and clutter, your home becomes a drain to your energy.
When you empower yourself through the care of your home, then your place recharges you and vitalizes you so that you can face the world with confidence.
A Good Feng Shui Door
A door with good Feng Shui needs to be:
A good Feng Shui door is a grand entrance for the type of home it belongs in. Doors can be too small or too large for particular types of homes and facades.
Front doors that are too small block abundance. Doors that are too large can’t keep abundance in.
There needs to be a good relationship between the front and back door in terms of size. When this is lacking an environment is created where people spend more than what they make.
The Feng Shui Front Door and You
Spaces affect the ways in which you and your loved ones behave.
Upon coming to your front door people can tell how high is your self esteem, and get an idea of whether you make a good income or whether you’re always struggling. You can tell too. The messages your home gives you are even more important than the messages it gives to visitors.
