Following on from our last post on How to Feng Shui Your House, we continue the journey on the path to discovering the ancient art of Feng Shui. The ancient Chinese believed that a structure must be supportive of good energy balance and be in harmony with its surroundings. In addtion, well a feng shui-ed building is believed to keep its inhabitants in harmony with each other.
So what’s the most important structure in your life right now? Your house. And with that, here are a couple of tell-tale signs you should look out for should you want a house with good feng shui!
1. Houses in T-Junction
This one is the ultimate favourite amongst Feng Shui enthusiasts. Never buy a house that sits at the end of a T-Junction.
A house on a T-Junction
A T-Junction house essentially faces the opening of a street (or sits at the end of a street) and is considered to have bad Feng Shui. People believe the oncoming energy from the street hit directly at the house and can disrupt the balance of energy in the house affecting relationships, health and good fortune. But beyond the science of the feng shui energy, there is a logical reason for avoiding T-Junction houses: traffic from the oncoming street directly faces your house. Your house is essentially a speeding car or a drunk driver car away from a catastrophic accident.
There are ways to help improve the feng shui of a T-Junction house by planting large trees or building a front gate, but if you can, try to avoid buying T-Junction houses altogether.
2. Houses near Schools, Churches or Mosques.
They say houses near schools, churches or mosques do not have the best of feng shui. Near is probably a loose term but generally you are considered living near it if you can see a school, church or mosque from your front door. Schools, churches and mosques usually have lots of movement and active energy is always present. This does not bode well for your home as there needs to be a good balance of active and non-active energy.
But again, there is one logical reason to avoid houses near schools, churches and mosques. Parking.
3. Avoid houses in Culs-de-Sac.
Culs-de-Sac or otherwise known as dead end streets (no through roads, courts) are seemingly a good location for a house. Less incoming traffic and your kids can ride their bike on the street on a nice autumn afternoon. However, feng shui principles show that houses on culs-de-sac do not have good feng shui as bad energy cannot escape and bounce around from houses around the court. There is no good flow of energy entering and escaping because of the dead end structure of the street.
There you have it! Keep these 3 facts in mind when inspecting your next house or maybe these good feng shui tips can narrow your house choices down. If your house is sitting on a T-Junction or at the end of dead end street, do not fret and watch out for our next article on how to improve feng shui for your house!
