It's your birthday and as you wake up, you find all shapes and sizes of gifts but the most beautifully decorated one catches your fancy. You first want to open this particular one. Why is it so special? It's because it's so inviting. Similarly, in Feng Shui, your front door attracts and invites energy.
Firstly, in order to entice auspicious energy, the front door needs to be well taken care of.
When an entrance is beautiful, we invite possibilities and opportunities into our homes. And with that kind of energy flowing through the space, it has a similar effect in our lives. Good vibes knock on your door.
Often, we extensively decorate our homes but forget the space just outside the home. Don't ignore the space outside the door. De-clutter this space, clean the front door, avoid keeping footwear just outside the door, and instead place them neatly on a rack. Sweep the floor every morning; decorate it with beautiful 'rangoli' or other decorations, like plants, flowers etc. Add fragrance with candles. You could hang a wind chime outside so as the wind rustles, the good energy flows into the house, inviting more opportunities into your life. Paint the door and have your family name on it as it will ensure that energy knows where to find you. Make sure you use the front door regularly, as Feng Shui holds that the really potent, boundless energy available prefers the front door, if invited. Make sure you open the door once every day to get in the abundance life has to offer.
When the front door is left neglected, it suggests resources — time, money, and energy — are in short supply. So, be creative, decorate your front door and have opportunities knock your doors every time.
