When it comes to Feng Shui most people think only in terms of the interior of the home when in fact it could be what is happening outside your home that ails you. Yes it could be the energy from someone else of something else that is creating your problems.
Your yard is usually the last item on your home’s To Do list. You don’t want to deal with it, and it’s understandable. But in terms of balancing your Feng Shui energy, you will want to look at the outside of your home just as much as you look at the inside of your home. While it might seem that changing the way your interior looks and feels is important, if energy can not flow into your home because of the exterior, those changes may not be as effective as you want them to be.
Can Energy Flow into Your Home?
One of the best ways to determine whether energy is able to flow into your home is to walk out into the street. Go to the street and see if you can see your front door from there. If you can not, go back to your home and clear away anything that might be obstructing the view. You want to make sure that energy can ‘find’ your home and enter it each time you use that door. If you use another door to enter your house, make sure that entryway is free from obstacles as well. In addition, you should make sure that here are no flaws, cracks, or bumps in the walkway to your door as this can cause the energy to be blocked as well.
What’s Slowing Energy in Your Yard?
You might live in a home that is next to a busy street or a loud family. If this is the case and you can not move, you might want to look into adding some Feng Shui protectors to your yard – in the form of statues. By adding buddhas or other statues, you can begin to disrupt any negative energy which might be coming from others, helping to keep your energy positive. And these statues will add to the beauty of your home, which is also a good way to boost the chi flow.
Attract Positive Energy
Finally, adding some red colored plants and flowers will help to boost energy in and around your home. This color is associated with good luck and with positive outcomes, so this is the perfect addition to any yard. If possible, you will also want to find ways to incorporate all of the five elements into the landscaping – water, wood, earth, metal, and fire. This will balance out Feng Shui energy and allow any energy that does flow into and through the yard to be soothing as it moves into your home.
The outside of your home matters just as much if not more than the interior of your home when you are concerned about Feng Shui. With just a few changes, you can see and feel the results.
