Feng Shui is used while creating a layout in order to best interact with the surrounding energy. This ancient Chinese philosophy studied how qi or the energy in your home would directly affect your well-being. Elements from the earth, such as wood, fire, earth, metal, and water, should be brought into our living spaces to help revitalize them. Each element can pursue different moods, yet you want your home to be balanced and never too influenced by one or another. In this manner, Feng Shui has become a very in-depth set of principles to bettering the happiness of our home.
Did you know the color of your front door can influence the Feng Shui of your home? Well, it most certainly can! If you have a north-facing front door, here is everything you should consider for a balanced and flowing home qi:
Creating Feng Shui
Doors are the gateways to our homes. Since Feng Shui is about bringing positive energy from the outside into our homes, they are considered very crucial areas. There are eight directions in which a door can face: north, northeast, east, southeast, south, southwest, west, and northwest. With a door facing north, the compass will read from 337.5 to 22.5. This direction means your front door’s element is water or Bagua energy.
North Corresponds with Water Element Colors
Bagua or water energy can also be nourished by metal energy. So, colors that are good for either element will work for your door. Water energy is represented by blue or black. Metal energy can be represented by using white or grey. Any of these colors are excellent choices for a north-facing front door.
Yet, with invoking positive energy, there is also negative energy, which should be avoided. Do not use colors like deep pink, orange, purple, red, yellow, or brown. These colors are used to represent other elements like wood, earth, and fire. Using the wrong elements can influence negative or destructive energy in your home.
There is so much that goes into Feng Shui. The philosophy has many ways in which the environment can affect the energy of your home. If you are interested in learning more about qi, Feng Shui, and positive energy for your home, make sure to subscribe.
