I recently went to see a client of mine and approaching the entrance I could see dead leaves everywhere as well as pot plants that were in desperate need of water. She wanted me to come and see her because she had trouble getting her business going, and she was looking into the possibility of decluttering her space and applying Feng shui to promote a positive flow of chi.
The entrance of a building is the first impression. And as we all know, the first ones count and they last. Research suggests that within seven seconds people will have formed a solid impression. You might want to use these seconds well depending on what you’d like to achieve.
So how does your entrance look like?
In Feng Shui even the cardinal directions are of utter importance, as east is seen as the auspicious orientation for the entrance of a building. Maharishi Vastu architecture is a set of architectural and planning principles which are based on ancient sanskrit texts and the position of the sun. If you are thinking of building a house it’s well worth looking into it.
However, some buildings aren’t as fortunate as others, and their entrances are not facing according to the rising sun. A good start to promote and attract positive energy is by cleaning and tidying up, and by positioning healthy pot plans at the entrance, or by putting down a doormat that looks inviting. My client came back to me after she had applied some of these measures, saying, that it had contributed to her business starting to take off.
It’s wonderful to see how decluttering and feng shui promotes a positive flow of energy and therefore our goals.
