The main entry is very important in feng shui because it is through the main door that the house absorbs its Chi or feng shui energy nourishment. While a strong front door will be able to attract strong energy, it is up to the good feng shui design in the main entry to be able to ground, as well as guide, this energy further into the home.
When a house has good energy circulating throughout, the people who live in the house experience higher levels of well-being. If the energy in your main entry is blocked, the house will not have enough energy, so to speak, to support the quality of your own personal energy.
We have many feng shui tips on how to create a strong front door (or main door), so the next step is to be sure you have good feng shui in your main entry. Basically, this means having a main entry that is able to welcome and direct the flow of feng shui energy into the house versus pushing the energy away or weaken it.
How to Create Good Feng Shui in the Main Entry
Implement these steps along with the tips for a strong feng shui main door, as one does not work well without the other.
1. Find out the feng shui bagua area of your main entry and use the best colors and shapes to strengthen the needed feng shui energy there. Should you use red color in your main entry? Or maybe blue? Feng shui-wise, it all depends on the bagua area, so start with it.
2. Create a strong, welcoming "landing space" for good energy. From a modest side table with a small lamp to a big round table placed in the center of your hallway with a flower-filled vase on top, there are many good feng shui decor choices to welcome Chi, or energy, into your home.
If your space is limited, even a good quality main entry rug with vibrant colors or beautiful art and a strong wall color as a focal point can do the job.
3. Remedy all the potential "feng shui disasters" in the main entry. There are several feng shui main entry challenges you may encounter in your home such as:
- Mirror facing the main door
- Staircase too close/facing the front door
- Wall too close/blocking the flow from the front door
- Bathroom over the main door
Look for creative feng shui decor remedies to let good energy into your home and be disciplined and consistent with your efforts of creating better feng shui energy in your main entry.
Some homes are easier to deal with than the others, but remember, you are the one who chose the current living arrangements. Do your best with what you have, and better things will follow.
