Feng Shui Tips For Buying A Happy Home
Spring is in the air, are you are considering upping sticks and moving? Buying
a home is a major expenditure so here are a few pointers to help you get it right:
- Which direction are you moving in? This year avoid moving North West and South
East if you can. Moving North West could mean predictably annoying hold ups and
problems where as South East could mean unforeseen and unexpected problems. Have
your most favourable directions for moving worked out before deciding.
- When you go to view a place what is your initial intuitive ‘gut’
feeling when you walk in? Ignore the fact the decoration may not be your taste
– take notice of how you ‘feel’ about the place. Your whole
body is a complex sensing device, take note of its wisdom.
- Find out a bit about the history of the property, why are the owners moving?
Has it been a happy place or are they moving because of divorce, bankruptcy or
health problems? The energy of previous owners can have a strong impact on new
occupants. Always consider having the place Space Cleared to dispel any negative
- What compass direction does the front door face? This will determine the type
of energy coming into the house. For example South facing could mean a busy social
time whereas North could find you becoming reclusive or feeling isolated.
- What is the ‘landscape’ like around the property i.e. in a city
the other buildings that surround it. Imagine the property as a living entity
and put yourself in its place – how does it feel to sit in this ‘landscape’?
Overshadowed, unsupported, overlooked or cosy, protected and safe?
- Take a look at the floor plan and layout, is the house a reasonably even shape
or is it very irregular. Few houses are the perfect ‘Feng Shui’ shape
but minimize the potential for future problems by having a Feng Shui consultant
check it over before committing yourself.
- Where is the bathroom located? Wherever possible avoid places with the bathroom
right in the centre of the property, with this there is the potential for health
problems and toilets in the North West and South East could mean money troubles.
Your home is a reflection of what’s going on in your inner, subconscious
world and the place you ultimately chose will reflect this. Remember, no choice
will be perfect instead consider the imperfections an opportunity to work on yourself
from the outside in!
