Revitalize Your Main Door
05 February 2012,
Another integral part of creating our heaven on earth at home involves our main door, the ‘mouth’ of the house. As your home gets its qi nourishment through this entranceway, so the stronger, healthier and more balanced your main door is, the stronger and better the quality of energy available for the occupants of the house.
So, how does a strong Main Door look like? Essentially, it should be an unobstructed, open flow of energy gushing through the front door. Having blockage in front of the Main Door will create a confine to energy absorption, which in time will reflect in the health and wealth of the occupants of the house.
A good Main Door should be solid and protective no matter the material – wood, metal, glass; anything is fine, as long as it is solid. Other than that, your Main Door should also open into an open space, as it should look out to the open space outside. Doors opening inside only create barriers in wealth.
As such, the Main Door should be sturdy enough not to cause any noise. Any cracks on the Door only pave way for the Killing Qi, otherwise known as Sha Qi, which abounds with adverse effects. However, you can always change a new door for an alternative or take on repair work on the Door’s crackling noise accordingly.
There should be no justifiable excuse that substantiates any form of obstructions to the Main Door. Ensure that your Main Door area is clear; not dark or shadowed as a result of thick greenery or even foliage from trees surrounding your property.
In addition, make way for sunlight to reach your doorstep to prevent the emergence of Yin Sha, which is hazardous to the mental health of the residents. Pillars, trees, poles and lamp posts of some sort are a major no-no because it invokes the Piercing Heart Sha that causes health issues and career obstacles. To remedy this negative Qi, relocate the Main Door to another sector or strategically place a screen in front of the pillar to redirect the Qi. With that said, bear in mind though that this will only bring about minimal to moderate impact to the situation because the Bright Hall is still affected.
Now that we’re talking Bright Hall, know that a Bright Hall is not made ‘bright’ by positioning plenty of lights all over your hall. Essentially, it is a Feng Shui term that refers to the spacious area in front of your Main Door. As Qi must first settle and circulate progressively within an area before you can receive it, keep this area be clear, spacious and broad.
Having said all that, understand that not everything is “fixable” in Feng Shui. It operates on the basis that you should avoid a problem above all, rather than making your life difficult by trying to fix something you could have avoided in the first place. Prevention is indeed, better than cure!
