Simple Feng Shui Tips For Your Home

The Seattle Times: Living: Real-estate agents studying feng shui to help sell houses: "Feng shui tips

Feng shui (pronounced 'fung shway') strives for harmonious interaction between the five elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water while creating a place where energy can flow freely. Here's an edited list of suggestions from Anne Mansfield, executive director of the International Feng Shui Guild, for buying and selling a home with feng shui in mind:

Don't buy a house at the end of a busy 'T' intersection, which puts you in the path of dangerous 'chi,' or energy. If you're selling such a home, add hedges or other barriers for protection.

Reduce entryway clutter to create a welcoming atmosphere.

Think of the home and its environment as one place. Both should work in harmony.

The front door should face the best direction for the site. Avoid homes that face hillsides and mountains, where 'energy is coming right at you. ... You want to have it behind you, supporting you.' Cliffs are also bad, she says — your front door is associated with wealth and relationships, and you don't want that kind of energy to fall away from you. Other considerations: sun and other weather forces, as well as any cultural preferences.

Avoid living next to power transformers (too much "fire" energy) or a cemetery (inactive or downward energy).

Negative energy left by former property owners ("predecessor chi") can be improved with a space-clearing ceremony.
