A Manhattan Feng Shui Consultant's Advice.....
Although I practice Feng Shui in New York City and Long Island, I get questions from all over the United States. I do many Feng Shui Consultations at a distance and have heard that some Feng Shui Consultants do not answer questions due to a shortage of time.
I love to hear the interest in Feng Shui. I also receive questions from believers and skeptics alike.
A recent question about purchasing a new home from a buyer made me pause. Her question was whether I believed she and her husband should purchase this home-from a Feng Shui Perspective. Can you see what made her hesitate?
Here's a link to the home she'd like to buy:
I am not sure what other Feng Shui Consultants would advise but I have seen, firsthand, that when a client LOVES a home or a business their own personal energy can overcome any Feng Shui "issues."
In this case they didn't want to cut down the tree although they could see it obstructs the front door. In case you aren't familiar with Feng Shui, the front door represents "The Mouth of Chi" -- where all the good energy enters. Although many people still refuse to give up their convenient garage-door entrances, most Feng Shui Consultants would agree you are not allowing the new energy to enter.
I would NOT deter someone from buying a home or business if they truly LOVE it-and they DO love this house. Here are my suggestions to her to enhance The Mouth of Chi:
*Light up the pathway to the front door. I love using Solar Lights to do this and they are relatively inexpensive.
*Use a Wind Chime at the entrance. It attracts Energy.
*USE THE FRONT DOOR. Allow the new energy IN.
*Create a balance to offset the tree. A pair of Plants on each side can accomplish this easily.
*Add a Bagua (Octagon) mirror above the front door. I actually prefer the plain ones with no borders and they can be found very inexpensively online. They are often used for Jewlery Display and that's a search term to use to find them.
*Make sure the front door has lights (most already do).
An optional but not necessary adjustment would to paint the front door. RED attracts CHI (energy) while BLACK is the color of CAREER.
I'd love to hear Home stagers, Realtors or other Feng Shui Consultant's advice. Perhaps I've missed something or perhaps you don't happen to believe they should purchase this home. There are so many perspectives of Feng Shui-and I love hearing them ALL. So would this person, I'm sure.........
