The Statesman

The Statesman: "Feng Shui SOLUTION

Feng Shui believes that your house behaves like a living organism and its main door serves as its mouth through which the positive Yang “Chi” enters the house.

As the quality of food eaten and the food habits help determine the health of a person, likewise the quality of “Chi” which the main door receives and the way it enters through it help determine the quality of life of the persons living in the house.

Hence the main door is considered so important from the perspective of Feng Shui. An attractive main door can not only invite auspicious “Chi” into the house but also give a warm welcome to the guests, visitors as well as the residents.

It is important that the size of the main door matches the size of the building and its facade. A too large main door should be avoided because it would represent a big mouth compared to the size of the
face. The big door can hardly protect the vital ingredients in your home. It makes you exposed and vulnerable too. Similarly too small a main door should also be avoided because it would mean a small mouth in comparison to the size of the face and would also consequently mean too little energy entering the house.

Moreover, it would also minimise access and make one feel unwelcome and constrained to enter. The main door should be neither too large nor too small for the size of the building.

And what feels large or small enough cannot be based on physical measurement alone, but would also depend on your own feeling and
emotional experience.

If your house’s main door is too large in proportion to its facade than a mouth is to a face then the best solution lies in actually reducing its size or replacing it with a new smaller door.

Otherwise, mounting a light over its center can help visually reduce its apparent size. Or you can paint the door in a darker colour as compared to the rest of the house.

If the main door of your house is too small in proportion to its facade you need to attach importance to it.

Place large objects like plants and sculpture on its either sides or paint the adjacent walls around the door the same colour as the door to make it seem bigger. Otherwise, you can mount lights on its three sides to add visual importance to it. But obviously, enlarging its size or replacing it with a new larger door would be the preferred option.

Home Based Business Opportunities � Feng Shui Tips for Your Home Office: "

Did you know that over 50% of women now run their own home business or work from home? Get your compass out and find the following directions because we are going to try and make things run a little smoother for you using the ancient art of object placement - Feng Shui.
The most ideal locations to situate a home office, in order of best to second, third ad fourth best are the North (the Career Sector), the Southwest (the Wealth sector), the Northeast (Skills and Talents sector) or the South (the fame and recognition sector.) If possible try to locate your home office in one of those locations.
Here are some other general tips that are thought to bring prosperity to your business.
�Always sit with a solid wall behind your back to ensure that you have support in your life. Never sit with a window behind you.
�In the office always place the fax machine, telephone, and computers in the southeast wealth sector, as this will attract more contacts.
�Position your desk to have a clear view of the door. If this isn’t possible, hang a small mirror so you can easily view the door’s reflection.
�Don’t put a shelf over your desk. This symbolizes burdens the world crashing down on you at any moment. The heavy shelf also symbolizes burdens and difficulties.
�Avoid having sharp accessories, such as a paper cutter blade or the corner of a Xerox machine pointed at your desk. It is shar chi that symbolizes the cutting knife-edge or a disapproving finger pointing at you.
�Make sure that you can walk completely around your desk in a full circle. This makes sure colleagues or workload does not cramp you. You should have space to breathe!
�Do not have clutter in your office. Desktops must be kept tidy and clutter free. Avoid placing In and Out trays on your desk. Try to keep what is in use on your desktop.
�If you own a NCR or cash till try and place that in your southeastern wealth corner as well.
�Avoid placing cactuses in your office as the needles of these plants are thought to create negative shar chi. Shar or sha chi is stagnant or harmful energy.
�In your office, never have the main door opening into your desk as this causes you to be faced with unexpected situations to deal with. Never have a door jamming against your desk, or your prosperity will always be blocked.
�Do not place your desk in a room so that it is between two doors because this causes chi to rush by and pass you by along with all of your good fortune. In other words the good energy walks in one door, right past you and out the back door!
�Never set your desk at the top of a staircase as chi will roll down the stairs and cause you loss of opportunity and wealth. If this is unavoidable, place a mirror above the front door looking in and facing the staircase.
�If people entering your business immediately face a wall and a long corridor try placing a hanging crystal in this area to allow good chi to accumulate. Also place mirrors here to direct the chi into your office.
�Do not place large electric equipment, such as photocopy machine or microwave near to the main door. These are considered to be “hot” items that cause energy to dissipate. Heat causes the dispersal of good chi.
�Do not place paper cutter or fax machines or any machine with a blade next to the front door. The “cutting” energy can cause staff and customers to be unpleasant and even possibly to back stab and fight each with other.
�Do not place an empty vase next to the main door, as empty vessels suck good chi trying to enter your place of business. If you have a vase make sure it is full of flowers!
�If you have candles in your office, light the wicks to make sure they are burnt, even if you don’t plan to light the candle. An unlit candle is bad feng shui as it represents the limitations of possibility.
�Place a fish tank or fishpond in the southwestern corner of your office. If this is not possible consider building a Koi pond in the southwestern sector outside your building.
�To enhance your wealth and prosperity, position your indoor water feature in the southeast element of your home or office. For career luck, place it in the north. A tabletop fountain made of bamboo or flat round stones is always good for this purpose.
�If you have a company signboard or logo it should be optimally placed in the southeastern area, the Southern area or the northern area of your home office.
May wind and water shower you with many blessings!
