How to slow down the Qi when you Have a Front and Back Door Alignment.
Day #231 of #365 Days of Feng Shui
Looking at the diagram in the pic you can see the front and back door of this home are in alignment.
And you may be thinking…
Well, according to Feng Shui this is not ideal.
And the reason why having your Front and Back door in Alignment is considered ‘Bad’ Feng Shui is…
It allows the Qi (your nourishing energy) to enter your home but then…. zip…
Where’d it go?
Yup… out again.
What you actually want to create is a space, home or biz where the Qi enters and nourishes your space.
When Qi nourishes a space it brings with it vital life force energy to support, nourish and maintain your health, wellbeing and abundance.
And it does this by being able to snake around the active spaces of your home.
But having doors in alignment like this (in pic) will not allow the Qi to stick around and nourish the other parts of your home.
So, your KEY GOAL here is to either SLOW DOWN the Qi or DIVERT the Qi to go somewhere else.
Here are 5 Easy Feng Shui Tips to Slow the Qi Down when you have Your Doors in Alignment.
1) If possible, place a screen in between the front and back door to break up the space and divert your attention of looking straight out your back door upon entry.
2) Block off the back door with a solid material and use another back entrance if you have one.
3) If this area is a narrow hallway, placing a beautiful fretwork internal arch – like you see in old Victorian homes – is a great way to divert your attention and slow down the Qi.
4) Placing a large hanging beautiful light fitting or chandelier just inside the entrance way is another way to slow down the Qi.
5) Place beautiful artwork on either side of the wall, staggering them down the hall. Add plants, a hall table with flowers etc, anything that captures your attention will slow down the Qi.
Extra Info – Some Feng Shui consultants will recommend placing wind chimes or faceted crystals in between the doors but wind chimes are really meant to go outside (hence why they are called ‘wind’chimes) and the crystal will need to be big enough to capture your attention. So fretwork or decorative hanging light are a better option.
