Staircases that have one flight of stairs, with no landing, are a problem that belongs in STEP 2 of the Nine Steps to Feng Shui® System:
A staircase with no landing feels too steep.
This is how a staircase with no landing can affect you and your family:
- When you’re downstairs looking up a staircase with no landing you immediately get the thought “this is hard work.”
- Over time, this feeling accumulates and at the back of your mind you start thinking that all of life is hard work. Nothing seems easy. Everything seems to be harder than it actually is.
- Then it becomes easier to procrastinate or to decide to not do things, because they will be too much work.
Clients who live in homes with staircases that have no landing report feeling fatigued often, or being afraid to start new things.
The Feng Shui Fix for a Staircase with No Landing
To correct the perception of a staircase with no landing being a hard climb, do this:
Place an image with large, bright figures on the wall at the top of the stairs. This image will uplift the energy and it will make it seem like the top is closer than what it is, and hence easier to climb up to. See for yourself:
I painted the image I used above for the demonstration with precisely this type of fix in mind.
