Home Sweet Home!

Our homes are the most important place to implement Feng Shui because they are the center of our lives and the place where relationships and memories are made.  A good Feng Shui home brings supportive energy, health, happiness and prosperity to those that dwell there.

With this being said, it is understandable that buying a new home is exciting but also very stressful. In order to help with the home buying process, use this simple check list to find the perfect Feng Shui home to support you and your family.

 

In Feng Shui we are analyzing the following elements of a home;

History of the home

Neighborhood

Parcel of land

Home exterior & interior

 

History of the home

To understand the energy of the home you are looking to buy it is beneficial to learn about the previous and current owners.  This information will help you discover if the environment will be supportive for you and your family or not.

  • Does the current owner live in the home or is it a rental?
  • Do you know anything about the people that currently live in the home? (ie. are the people getting a divorce, are they moving into a bigger home or can they no longer afford the home, etc.)?
  • Does it look like that the current owner has the financial means to maintain the home nicely?
  • What is the reason the current owner wants to sell the home?

 

Neighborhood 

  • Pay close attention to the surrounding area when you visit a potential home for the first time. On the drive there notice if something bothers you visually as you would see this every time you leave or return to your home.
  • Listen to the surrounding noises before entering the home and see if they have negative influences on you. (ie. construction, buzzing electric wires, traffic, etc.)
  • Make sure there are no massive or dominant structures overpowering your potential home.
  • Look out for sharp angles pointing towards your house from the neighbor’s house as this sends negative energy your way.

 

Parcel of land 

  • Ideally the shape of the lot should be a square or a rectangle.
  • Stay away from lots located on a T, a Y intersection, or on a cul-de-sac at the top of the closed street.
  • It is better to choose a home that is not situated on top of a hill as it leaves it without protection.
  • Choose a lot with mature landscaping.

 

Keep in mind that the perfect home does not exist unless you can build it up from the ground and choose the location. I think the most important point in buying a home is how you feel when you first walk into it.  Even if the home is beautiful and has the perfect location, trust your first impression.  If you don’t get a good vibe from it – keep looking! Look at a variety of houses and see which one has the most supportive Feng Shui features.
